okay, have been pixeling on this one for too long and decided to finally call it finished. initially done for the evoke 2010 demoparty (august 2010), where it won the pixel graphics competition, though heavily unfinished. while finalizing it over the last 4 months it saw at least 10 different palettes and nearly as much version of the battery blinking.

my first pixel using grafx2's layer support btw.

thanks to the ppl at pixelation for suggestion, especially st0ven! decided to keep the battery symbol as it was the initial idea, guys, don't try to talk me into dumping it :)

tools: grafx2 v2.2.1430 + several v2.3s :)

misc: silent version, silent version w/ brownish background (original palette), pixelation thread

wip: evoke winning version vs. final version + wip-animation (107 frames!)

Really groovy peice. It all works really well. I like the spooky greenery / trees framing it, and the feeling of impending shut down.

You only seem to be pixelling when there's a partycompo to be won, shame on you! :D

Awesome taste of colors in the low battery mode.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/28/2011 21:28

About time you finished this ^__^

Also, lovely colours, especially on the battery icon image.

Cammymoop (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 9/28/2011 21:01

 Nice, would not want to be that robot :)

Peelz (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/28/2011 20:38

 Love it :) 

I thought I'd like it better without the blinking, but I viewed it without and found that I actually prefer it this way

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 9/28/2011 20:27

 FINALLY! Love it! I've been waiting on this! 

Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 9/28/2011 16:26

 Oh finally you posted this! Nice!

Sergiotron (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 9/28/2011 16:15
