 king of texture

EvilEagles (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/11/2013 03:16

Absolutely stunning.

AtskaHeart (Level 7 Colonel) @ 4/8/2013 08:30

 Love the feeling.

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/25/2012 12:54

This is awesome. One of my favourite pixels of all time.

Game & Watch (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/2/2011 22:48

The book was awesome when I read it all those years ago, but I hadn't read many books before that ^^

Also, forgot to mention - your piece is fabulous. I'm no expert at pixel art, but I'm unable to spot any flaws in it. I wasn't blaming you for copying, just wanted to show you the similarity :)

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/30/2011 15:47

 Is the book any good? :D 

Game & Watch (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2011 14:17

This reminded me a lot of the cover of a book called The Amulet of Samarkand


Dr. Funk (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/21/2011 00:32

 great job man, looks very geometric which I like. good for pixel art!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 7/19/2011 02:43

 Yes :)

Krähe (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/19/2011 02:32

The QR Code on the left building actually reads "Loneliness". 

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/18/2011 09:34

congratulations for the first place! ^^

Arrow-1 (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/13/2011 10:47

The middle left section, on the wall...that looks like one of those little square codes you can scan with some iPhone/Android apps. I dunno what they're called... are you hiding something there all sneaky like?

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/12/2011 15:40

I´ve found the Way of the pixel bird! is this the hidden message? and fav, of course, I love the background and specially the clouds

MyO (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2011 09:47

A mix of styles, oldskool symbol-dithering against line-pixelart. Looks quite weird.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 7/11/2011 03:32

 Thank you all for the feedback! 

also @Stickman, yep, I've been on the brink of cropping the topmost part out and submitting only the bottom one just because of that- but I've left it whole because I feel the two styles make for an unusual contrast and kind of go together in a weird way :)

KensGrl16 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2011 03:30

I think this is a beautiful piece. but I just dont feel that it demonstrates being "Alone" like most of the others do in the challenge. I still think its a great work of pixel art though.

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/10/2011 01:02

 HAHAH Wow NIce Message now u def have my Vote 

Faved too lolll

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 7/9/2011 07:15

aww and the hidden message :)

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 7/9/2011 06:23

awesome and platform-y

peanutcookie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/8/2011 03:47

 Awsome :D

x-death (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/6/2011 15:32

the piece is pretty good. the only thing that annoys me is that i can't see the hidden message. i've been looking for ages.

elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2011 14:42

Whoa, so awesome. Love the dark colors as well as the overall image. Very artsy in a positive sense. :D

solrac (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2011 13:51

This is great. 

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/6/2011 13:23

Nice theme.

The upper and lower half feel like two seperate pictures - not that this is a bad thing, but it does feel that the two styles clash.

Very beautiful colours.

moroz1999 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2011 10:48

"Dithering" style is lovely!

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/6/2011 10:22

GREAT COLORS, and the background is lovely.... and yes... i totally see the GIANT YUS and the hidden message!, is a shame i cant "translate it" because dont have the technology for that! :PPPP.... me look at the oldphone ¬¬

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/6/2011 09:22

I had to change the colours before my phone would read it btw, just a note for anyone having trouble. 

Bonhomme (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 7/6/2011 08:12

Incredibly good :o 

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/6/2011 08:02

 5/5 Fantastic.

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/6/2011 07:56

 Holy crap a QR code. Must scan!

oh the pine trees rock

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/6/2011 07:51

RFID that reads loneliness? genius! 

Lóng (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2011 07:40

 The texturing is just so damn good, the patterns on the wings and the pillar are my favourite.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 7/6/2011 07:31

 Hmm, the final result misses a bit from the feel of the original ((I saw the first 2 stages) not enough darkness around it perhaps) but it did get a lot more interesting with the background! Well done on another winner piece!

Alex Pang (Level 6 Made) @ 7/6/2011 07:17

 I love your style :)

crozier (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/6/2011 06:55

Man your cleaning up on all the recent challenges. Nice job on this one!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 7/6/2011 06:44

 Yus! Erm, yes! :)

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/6/2011 06:41

I wanna go to the Yus temple :3

Also, I assume the hidden message is the QR code?

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/6/2011 05:12

oooooh, hidden message
