I was browsing my dropbox folder and came across this piece I did at work for new year 2009 actually. It was originaly printed as a postcard as seen here.

I was supposed to finish updating an old huge piece, but it's not yet ready so this is  something snowy for in between to wish you all a happy new year full of pixels!

p.s. That's a queen chess figure, playstation 3, wii, our company logo (tapered monolith) and an xbox 360.  We make games!

Thanks you guys! I love skyscrapers so this was fun to turn game consoles into ones. :)

I really like  the architecture!

Nice! I really like the 'icy' haze/fade on the horizon line.

Retronator (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/7/2012 05:47

Really? I did give it a try on this one, but it still looks best to me when I look at it at x1 zoom. So yeah, maybe it does go to style/taste.

Thanks for the really lovely comments everyone!

I like the image a lot and am not bothered by the lack of AA.

I also agree it could use antialiasing, but if it's your stylistic choice, then it can't be helped.

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/7/2012 04:15

 That is when antialiasing looks totaly awesome! You should try it sometimes ;)

Great colors btw!

Retronator (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/7/2012 04:08

Thanks! I very rarely do AA because I usually present my pixels at x2 resolution (like in the postcard link above) or even bigger so I need all the blockiness I can get. :D

nice colors and total lack of anti-alias = awesome
