Commission work done at end of 2010 for [link] for his album Atomica and requested a 16 bit style video game album cover and inlay art.

This is the cover.  Originally there was to be some back drop some sort of destruction like a city being attacked but it was cut due to time.  Not massively fond of the gradient but it does the trick alright.  Quite pleased with the character though as I suck at drawing women and this is probably the largest pixel piece I've done in ages, if not ever. 

Note: Volt 9000 is the musician's name and Atomica is the album name as well as the 'game heroine'.

I used a 16 color palette for all pieces of this commission project.  Just for practising color efficiency rather than any official rule.

 Wow, just perfect. The style remind me a lot of memories, with good game intros.

Great work! I like the metal effect!

ITS OVER NINETHOU... Oh wait, it's not. Great picture there. Really high detail and with only 16 colors. That is impressive.

Well, I think the angle on her right hand (from my POV) is a little off, but other than that I'm floored. Great coloring, ezpecially in the title, and her armor design is... appealing. ;D 

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/15/2011 08:42

I'm totalyl digging the Arcee look! I love it!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/14/2011 13:05

Like the overall feel - ver yold school, very stylish!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 6/14/2011 07:17

Yeah, it's been a looong time.  I'm not an UNSTOPPABLE PIXEL MACHINE like you, Jinn :)

{ Whoa! Nice to see you posting some fresh new pixelart!

  Love it! ^^

@the two Sticks  Yeah I get what you mean about the wrist.  I wanted the gun on the arm to be straight down and the wrist bent and used a reference (can't remember what as it was a while ago) and also did the arm pose myself which felt fine to me but then I'm a martial artist with fairly flexible joints (and was actually somewhat doublejointed in places to begin with anyways) so maybe I'm not the best person to check for awkward or uncomfortable poses since I spend a lot of my time stretching and pushing them to get even more flexible :P  I do appreciate how it can look a bit off though.  Ah well.  Too late to change anything now.

Really enjoying the red/magenta/yellow relationship for the metal rendering and the chrome lettering is so cheesy awesome.  Robot chick design with the black platings under the armor bits is really rad.  Only thing that is calling attention to myself is the left hand (her left) looks awkward with the wrist angle only looking comfortable for an action figure with 360 rotation action limbs.  Still, though, lovely overall.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/12/2011 15:01

Nice pic and I think the background works really well. My only crit is the angle of (her) left hand. The arm could of been slightly bent to get the shape following though to her hand as the angle feels a little awkward and uncomfortable.

Really gorgeous colours and the font is wonderful!

EyeCraft (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/12/2011 07:47

Oh man, I love this. Such a great 16-bit feeling to it.

JuninFC (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/12/2011 07:05

Wow !  

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 6/12/2011 02:13

Haha. there's a good reason for the RoboCop-influence.  Before starting this piece I had actually been doing a few mockups for an Amstrad CPC-redux of it's old RoboCop game and had done some work on getting the logo into the 8 bit style.  I guess the image was still fresh in my mind when I started this.  The visor hiding the eyes likely comes from it too.

robotwo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/11/2011 20:55

The title font just screams ROBOCOP :D

Interesting design , and love the use of color as per usual on your work ^^

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/11/2011 16:40

yeah! :)

great palette use ! 

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/11/2011 15:28

Only thing I'm not keen on is the shading of the visor, which reads kind of like slit pupils.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 6/11/2011 15:16

Yeah, about F'n time we saw something new from you! Spotted your style directly from the previews :D Great piece this one!
