vcvkvlj I love this

I thought you were implying that ptoing already does some kind of pixel art-inspired knitting and I almost fell off my chair.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 10/17/2011 11:43

Oh no, you need to talk to ptoing. You guys might start a sweet new club.

Weeellll, I'm looking into learning how to knit so that I can potentially make bizarre pixel art sweaters, and I bet I could pull off some stuff in the medium of wool in a similar manner to how some pixel art works, but yes I generally agree with what you're saying.  Plus, knitting stitches don't tend to be perfect, identical little squares, do they? : P

Anyway, thanks!

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 10/16/2011 23:25

Very cool! Interesting application of pixel. I like things like this because you simply couldn't have done this in any other medium and got the same result.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 10/16/2011 16:55

I guess so, since you made all of it this week.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 10/16/2011 16:00

wow that's pretty awesome so far, keep it up! :D

I don't know, I'm getting a bit stuck with this.  would I be allowed to submit something like this to the challenge (once I'm finished, of course), considering that a lot of it is made up of tiles stolen from this piece?

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 10/16/2011 14:13

I don't get the joke, but I like it =)

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/16/2011 13:51

 Lovely icon, looks amazing.

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 10/16/2011 12:33

It's actually not related to Steve Jobs, just a bad joke.  Thanks, though. : )

Haisook (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/16/2011 12:28

Can you tell me how this is related to Steve Jobs? The piece looks wonderful as-is, but I don't get the point in it.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 10/16/2011 10:53

Mh! I'd be interested in seeing anything else related to this if you ever do pursue it! :D

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 10/16/2011 08:58

That's a good idea, and I still have a whole day to mess around with it.  I think I was sort of thinking of using tiles in the very beginning but then changed my mind...

DioShiba (Level 4 Shoggoth (The Mountains of Madness)) @ 10/16/2011 05:19

I can see so many things in this piece.


This is a great example of Pixel Art in my opinion.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 10/16/2011 02:38

have you thought of splitting this in tiles, remaking it and perhaps using different palettes per tile?

i really like the face, it looks blown apart

Geoglatico (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/15/2011 20:42

 i love the colours

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/15/2011 20:13

reminds me of Guernica

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/15/2011 19:25
