I like landscapes.
The composition isn't optimal, I guess there is too much detail on the left making the right side look a bit empty.

So epic :O

Wanderboy (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/22/2018 01:13

Absolutely wonderful piece of art  Some parts looks like lucas art inspired 

Celt70 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/12/2017 23:28

beautiful Colours

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/9/2014 09:39

Great sky, great everything basically.

CakeDrake (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/29/2013 04:24

This reminds me of day of the tentacle :D

co_Opernicus (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/8/2013 13:20

Wow, beautiful scenery! I love the shapes of the rocks and trees. 

Killsick (Level 1 Private) @ 10/14/2012 00:29

 This is easily the most beautiful pixel scenery I've ever seen. Amazing job, man!

Merez (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/11/2012 13:55

Dude, that's amazing in all aspects.

 For me, it is one of the best pixel art PixelJoint. It has everything that I love and appreciate most about the textures of pixel art, A tree (leaves, forest), stones, and clouds. The leaves are great, the texture of the trunk as well.

Oh, and good combination of colors, they were clean.


Yielmo (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 4/17/2012 15:48

 Awesome. Love the canvas.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/6/2012 06:23

Quite a killer!            

sandrowski (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/22/2012 10:22

just perfect!

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/20/2012 14:00

its vereh lovely sir vierbit. The colors really draw me in. looks like the poor lad and lass have a long walk home though, haha.

orange08 (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 3/18/2012 05:29

Well deserved for 1st place :)

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/16/2012 11:00

wow wow wow. such a nice work, amazing colors.  

Muiriled (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/14/2012 08:16

 Man, this is just incredible! I'm amazed on how you worked the trees and stones.
Still there's two little things: the girl's anatomy looks weird, the dress she is wearing dont make it much clear, but there's a difference btween his arms and legs. arms should be a bit shorter (and thiner) or legs a bit larger (unless the rock she is standing in had a slope to the opposite side of the viewer, but since this side is horizontal it doesn't look so).  Also the woods feathers in what seems to be day's fog. I dont really think it's working for a sunset unless it's some sort of enchanted woods that has his own luminance.
..Or probably i''m just envious, you are a great pixel artist and the entire work is stuning, hahaha.  
Congrats in your totally deserved winning.                           

ChrisButton (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/13/2012 02:47

I love the way the colours interact with each other.

vanio_inn (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/10/2012 02:31

OMG, it made me dream for a moment :)

StepDragon (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/9/2012 22:30

 I would pay for a poster of this.

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/8/2012 20:09

 i like the colors :D, idont know about the girl, looks a bit strange compared to the guy, but still good :D

Inle (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/8/2012 09:26

This is beyond words of compare. Amazing.

Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/7/2012 22:02

Lovely as always, and even though the people are the focal point I feel as though your preview should have been focused on the great rock/foilage detail. Honestly, I couldn't even tell it was yours from the preview, but instantly knew it once I saw the cliffing.

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/7/2012 15:05

Perfect. Simply perfect.

Sublyme (Level 4 Murderer) @ 2/7/2012 14:31

this is the best piece of pixel art i have ever seen.

Cilein (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 2/7/2012 04:49

I'm in love with the rocks most out of the whole scene but this is one epic piece, and the contrast between the characters and the right of it balance it nicely. In a game or animation you could see this being panned across nicely. The curve of the rock to where the people are helps guide the eye there too imo, <3 this

Dweller (Level 4 Murderer) @ 2/7/2012 00:49

 Fav it, fantástico, grats

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/6/2012 15:36

Impressive! I love the ambiance in the forest!

HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/6/2012 15:13

yo dude, you're a human?

wishuponapixel (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/6/2012 11:42

Beautiful work! I think the bright colors on the right helps balance out the details on the left :)

TheManuz (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/6/2012 09:37

 OMG, i totally love this piece! Wonderful palette!

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/6/2012 08:10

Upon further reflection, I repeat "geez louise!" This is so good, vierbit.

Make an Adventure Game!

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/6/2012 08:00

Geez louise.

moogleymog (Level 2 Corporal) @ 2/6/2012 07:39

This is beautiful; I am in awe! The colours and detail are perfect and I cannot see a pixel out of place.

You are sure to win 1st.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 2/6/2012 03:23

love it! 

vierbit (Level 2 Recycling) @ 2/5/2012 16:47

Hah, nice one Mathias

SwissedToast (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/5/2012 13:41

 Ooh this is great! I'm especially loving the way you did the trees. Very nice job with the shadows.

AG182 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/5/2012 13:15

 This one is definitely going to make a Top Pixel Art this month!

|||| (Level 9 Orchid) @ 2/5/2012 05:53

Dayum.  I thought I had the slightest chance at this one; how overly optimistic of a thought. This is gorgeous work... So vivid. I too really like the rocks.

Hem-G (Level 2 Dealer) @ 2/5/2012 05:47

Very nice.

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/5/2012 01:44

Great atmosphere!

MyO (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/5/2012 00:19

Nice style, almost taken from The Dig.

Tart (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/4/2012 18:44

 This is awesome- the colors, the depth. I really like the rocks, no matter how unrealistic they are.

The only thing I think could use work is the way the girl's hair and dress flow.

The way her hair splits at the end makes it look ragged; I would make most the hair flow into one piece, or have the parts of her hair divide earlier near her head.

As for her dress, the bottom of the skirt is a flat, horizontal line making it look very stiff. The wind would make it blow behind her and layer the cloth. The hemline should vary in levels.

You're a shoo-in, either way!

cassiechihuahua (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/4/2012 18:07

love the color and the trail as it furthers into the woods. realy really nice job here, could stare it at it a long time lol

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/4/2012 17:04

Great pic and those colours are brilliant!

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/4/2012 16:55

 Very beautiful, amazing.

vierbit (Level 2 Recycling) @ 2/4/2012 16:44

Unfortunately there aren't any wip files. Tried it a few times to create one of these progress GIFs, but it's just bothersome to managing that. The only thing that I have is a sketch for getting a rough idea what i was doing. And yes I flipped that image afterwards, looked better to me.
But frankly, i don't think I use any special technique ;).

Sylon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/4/2012 14:03

Wow, excellent work!  I LOVE landscapes too!  You really got lighting down...great leaves, trees, everything.  Fave'd.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 2/4/2012 13:18

 Also, out of curiousity and for learning purposes, do you have a WIP of this? I'd love to see it. :)

solrac (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/4/2012 11:53

 I can tell you like landscapes. This is amazing.

HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/4/2012 11:20

I give up this challengue!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/4/2012 10:34


Lacaio123 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/4/2012 10:14

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/4/2012 08:54

I like the fog on the left side

Jeremy H (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/4/2012 07:31

This is beautifull. I love the colouring work.

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 2/4/2012 06:58

Holy crap... I will be studying this peice for a while

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 2/4/2012 06:55

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 2/4/2012 02:12

Gorgeous.  Love everything about it particularly the rock styling and the palette and the contrast between the left and right sides. 

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/4/2012 02:05

 my favorite so far


buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 2/4/2012 01:44

Awesome. Gotta love the style on those rocks and trees. Man.
