I could have cleaned up the ground and pillar thing more, but I don't really care anymore.

To quote a great poet...

"Beautiful =)"

Beautiful =)

The remnants of linework in the flower send conflicting information that keep it from reading fully as metal (if that's what it's supposed to be!). See some refs.

the flower is so great.  It sucks your teach doesn't understand the art medium, however, those who do know it can see that this is an awesome, though definitely unfinished piece.

It's too bad your art teacher didn't like it. I agree it's somewhat unrefined, but it's still a lovely bit of art. Nice concept!

I'm sorry about your art teacher not likeing pixel art. My art teacher does becuase he is the kind of person who will accept most hings as "art" as long as they are creative. That's how I think it should be viewed. But anyway, I really like this peice. I share my only crit w/ mathias about curving the stem.

An unbiased person accepts PA (or any other media) as art when/if he/she sees a piece that has effort, thought and skill put into. If your instructor insisted not to accept this after seeing this piece, she's probably just too stubborn, yet there's a slight chance she can be blind or plain idiot. In other words this is a great piece.

 Amazing!

Haha great backstory.

Thinking about others' perception of PA, it took even me forever to really understand it. Anytime I try to explain it to others, it's simply impossible. I try and focus on the technical aspects and what defines digi art as PA.

Eh, at the time of posting I was slightly frustrated with the piece, as it was originally part of an art project for my actual art class but failed to impress the instructor who (despite my explanations) had trouble accepting pixelart as a respectable medium of art.

(Didn't help that I told her that though I could print this out, this was best viewed and graded on its original canvas of the computer screen.)

On the uphand, when I handed in the project, she couldn't tell that it wasn't perfectly polished since I don't think she was looking so hard for antialiasing and other such signs of pixel-refinement.

(why demean your own hard work with such an expression of apathy? Doesn't exactly make us want to care too hard about it, if you don't)

I like the curvilinearness juxtaposed with the rectilinearness too, though I wish the flower's stem was more curved/natural-looking to complete the look (stem is also off-center). Also, I would've recommended reserving those couple of brighter shades just for the flower so it pops more, out of the geometrical environment it's in.

I love the organic flower amongst the non-organic rectangles, great idea.
