 First pixel picture I've done in a looong time :)

I started this one in early 2010, then had to let it rest for one year or so because of the lack of time and motivation. I got back to it a couple of months ago with the aim of releasing at Outline, a demoparty in Holland that was held earlier this month. Since then I've fixed a few flaws and added a bit of polish. 
If I had to redo it again, I would probably use a few less colours for the main tint and keep 4-5 different colours for the face and sky. I think this would have looked less monochromatic.
EDIT: rearranged the palette and added more details on the dog's coat. Thanks everyone for feedback!

Surprise pic at Outline that made us all smile! Welcome back exocet! :)

Please give us moooooooore!

That works nicely, tho some of the darkest pink (on the doogy coat) blends with the wall behind. It could use some dark shading there. Just a bit, for contrast. 

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 7/6/2011 07:02

 Update with better-looking coat for the doggy!

peanutcookie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/4/2011 13:40

Back in business, yay! Love those skyscrapers! 

Risky2k (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/2/2011 09:56

 Amazing Work!

llshadow (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/2/2011 07:13

That's smooth!

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/30/2011 09:25

Yeah, I removed the yellow but then darkened the white. If you remove either or there should not be a full white in any case. But it would perhaps also help to change the value of some of the colours to adjust for the loss of the brightest tone.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 6/30/2011 08:59

 Ptoing, thanks for the edit, that looks cool! I might try something like this during the weekend, but remove the white instead, as I'd like to keep the colours quite warm. 

sandrowski (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/30/2011 05:37

doggy looks so fun :)

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/30/2011 01:53

Awesome to see a new piece of you again! I really like your style!

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/29/2011 21:20


Nice to see you submit something new!

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/29/2011 13:55

Nice to see you back.

I just made a quick edit of it. 

The easiest fix imo is to kill the bright yellow, make the white a bit darker, and then add a inbetween colour for the pinks. I also made the dark pink a bit darker so that it flows into the next darker colour better.

Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 6/29/2011 12:25

Wow, this is slick! I love the style and the rendering. Besides the pink on the dog being a little out of place and not rendered,  my only real complaint is that the background is somewhat flat. Great job, though.

axendel (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/29/2011 11:32

dude you got skillz

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 6/29/2011 07:36

 Thanks for the nice feedback! I agree the dog's coat could do with a bit more detail, but I have very few pink shades to play with... I'll see what I can do :)

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/29/2011 05:38

A lovely welcome with a great pic. Nice background buildings!

a3um (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/29/2011 00:23

 Personally I like the dog's suit (:

PoisonousJoy (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/28/2011 15:23

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/28/2011 13:10

Ohie, noticed that tiny heart on his right side pocket. :)

Really nice stuff.

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/28/2011 13:05

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/28/2011 12:50

SatTheArtist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/28/2011 11:35

OMG that is epic! As showtime said with the jumpsuit though... kinda weird.

Awesome! Really nice color choice

 You return! I am entertained!

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 6/28/2011 10:41

Looks amazing, although to be honest the chihuahua's um... jumpsuit (?) looks a little flat compared to everything else.

PeterH (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/28/2011 09:25

Love it !

Manuziari (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/28/2011 08:51
