Long time I haven't done something, so wanna try this Apple II palette but without to much time, and no real idea for background, I hate it in fact...

EDIT: I've modified BG to make it less bright (this way I hate it less ^^)

 I like his chin, not in a mean way am I saying this, but it looks like whipped cream coming out of someone's behind :) Really cool great dithering, nice colors and the sky is magnificent, weel played, you shouldv'e won though.

I like it, especially the texture/dither on the clown.

It'd be best to save the updates till after the challenge, since part of the challenge is creating the piece within the challenge week.

Very nice update btw, particularly the sky

Oh snap! This was cool before, but now it's simply amazing.

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/20/2011 15:47

omg, you improved this DRASTICALLY!!! Those building lights and sky are amazing.  But still...  I do not understand why the back of his neck is interrupted with those 4 white diagonal pixels.

This piece is now just fucking awesome. Should be thaught in classes. Not to mention my favorite in this week's challenge by far.

 I lol'd at the hidden pac-man. See if you guys can find him!

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/18/2011 22:28

Absolutely love that new sky.

Buildings look a bit noisy now though.

@ DawnBringer: Thanks for the advice, I saw what you mean, I've removed most of bright-blue from BG, that we can see the clown. If only I could understand colors like you.

I've made lot of modifications in fact, hope it's not to much breaking challenge rules, I've done it more for myself (trying to hate this less) than for any rebbon. Apart from that, I don't want to put an apple in it because the only restriction was using Apple II palette (and if I have to put a logo it will be Commodore or Atari ^^) but you can see Pacman, Pacgums and a Ghost if you find it.

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/17/2011 20:37

btw, what is up with the clown's neck?

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/17/2011 19:56

Why don't you try remapping the background with darker colors, right now he kinda downs in the bright-blue & magenta. Nice dithering :)

@xodblux: Or and apple-shaped moon :)

The shading technique came out beautiful. Great job on this piece. Love the atmosphere surrounding aswell, but I agree with others that the clown/city don't go good together.

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/17/2011 15:49

I agree with snowk.  I really like the clown by himself, and I love the city by itself and think both could be separate pieces, but together the two kinda hinder each other.

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/17/2011 15:22

I think the styles are a bit clashing here. but its pretty nice.

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/17/2011 11:14

 Amazing, good shadows.

xodblux (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/17/2011 10:06

l really like the uncommon dithering pattern that you used.  You know, I've just got the idea that you could have added a sky light beam that project an apple sign, like in Gotham city and the batman sign... My two cents :o)

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/17/2011 08:28

Very cool shadings!

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 10/17/2011 08:15

 Good to see you're still around, Thug! I like the style of the clown in the foreground. The background is a bit bland compared to it :)

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 10/17/2011 03:42

I do not hate it.

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/17/2011 02:39

So, what you're saying is, Mac users are demented clowns.

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/17/2011 01:59

whoa... I didn't see this one coming. amazing stuff here.
