This is an older graphic from 2008. It is the second pixel art I did after a 16 year downtime and first using 0xPaint as editor. Cool tool, a bit basic like Koala Painter (unfortunately it only works properly with WinXP).

C64, bitmap multicolor, 160x200px, double pixel, 1 fixed background (brown here), 3 foreground colors per 4x8 block, preset palette

 Love this style, great job.

you are not alone, I mean, how can you NOT see it... :D 

Great picture though, it really has that old school vibe going!

Yes, the anatomy seems a bit off in places but I think it just adds to the charm of this particular style.

From the preview, I thought the kid was jerking it.

Oh god.

I love that look of adoration. Nicely done!

Gwes (Level 1 Private) @ 2/28/2012 07:02

Very nicely done, gives me a nostalgic feeling having grown up with a C64.

The amount of detail for using double pixels is impressive!  :)

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/26/2012 17:01

Nice to see some of your older stuff!

Veto (Level 4 Murderer) @ 2/26/2012 13:29

thanks for the kind words :) i am glad you like the picture.

jok: jep, the motive is my idea. well, anatomy is often a weak point in my pics. maybe it sounds weird, but i mostly avoid reference pictures to improve. it is more like modeling humans (imo this works, though people still are far from perfect)...

here are the workstages for those who are interested:

 looks realy good! - great use of multi and c64 palette

right part especially  - i mean lights and shadows on plants and rocks  :)

- idea is yours to?


anatomy sucks a little - examp. - warrior arms are too short and boy head too big imho - but thess are small glitches
