This has been an on again off again project for a long time now. I've actually lost track of exactly how long I've been working on this, but I know it's been more than a year at this point. I kept losing the inspiration I needed to push through and finish. I've recently had the drive to pick it up and finally complete the image though.

Many, many hours put into this. 18 colours + transparency last I counted (might be an accidental extra shade or two here or there)

Google reference used for the frame pattern, but work still done by me


I know there are probably plenty of technical issues with this, but I'm tired of staring at it haha ^^;

the preview doesn't do it justice. Awesome piece. Frame is nice, if a little flat at the ends. The lightbulb plants are also cool, and the pixelwork on the tree is ace.

Amazing and beautiful ;)

I don't even know what's going on in this picture but it's really good.

I like the light bulbs. The outside of the face could do with a little softening(using a lighter line colour) as the character looks rather delicate. Is the blood because of thorns?

Would even like it with 28! Great stuff.

there we go :) resaved as a png and fixed the 3 spots with extra colours not in my palette that my psd version had. No idea where so many extra colours came from with the gif x_o. That palette tool now says 19 colours though haha

@yrizoud and Manupix : The head being oversized was indeed intentional, it's just part of my style I guess.  As for the face being androgynous, I'm not sure I see an issue with that as it was also intentional as well. Besides, hyst because most of my gallery is 'cutesy' stuff, doesn't mean I'm not capable of something a bit creepier :)


aaand for some reason i cant unbold any of that :/ lol!

@ Mathias : ews what the heck? Not sure how it went from 18 to 28 :/ I'll have to check that out

28 colors

I'd color reduce it back down to your actual palette before calling it done if it's such a long time coming.

Woah! plain amazing!

Some nitpicks: maybe what is a bit uncanny (for me too, but not all that much) is that the face appears androgynous as well as oversized.

The outlines are too prominent, in some parts of the body, and mostly in the overhanging vines which create a noisy distraction.

I didn't see the light bulbs at once, they might give off light haloes.

 This is nice.  I only wish there was a bit more contrast to the colors, though, because at a first glance, it's hard to read what's going on.  The border looks like it was mind-numbing work.  Good job.

yrizoud (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/7/2011 07:33

The only defect I can detect is that the creature brings me straight to uncanny valley (closes misses "cute" and gets to "creepy" instead), probably due to the head being oversized compared to the rest of the body. If this was intended, no problem.

KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/7/2011 05:11

Words cannot describe how amazing this work is. A job well done, to say the very least. 6/6.

shiritt (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/7/2011 02:46

Shockingly good :O

And a year of work O.o, talk about dedication :P (i know it isn't fulltime, but still).
I did see some very small mistakes (black bar under left arm, weird bumb on second from right lightbulb), however, what |||| already said, these are overshadowed by the total awesomeness.

This is awesome, and i cant spot any technical issues

|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 6/7/2011 00:54

There's so much good to this. I love the tree trunk and the frame, great shape and detail; looks like a lot of hard work. Any technical, or rather, minor technical issues is far outweighed by the greatness overall.
