JS Bach pixeled using triangle pixels.  Was first pixeled at 48x48, then blown up to x8, and each 'pixel' was then cut into 4 triangles like an X.  I started it a long time ago but never finished it because it was so annoying to do the hair.  The hair and likeness could be better but I think its still pretty cool.

I started with the dawnbringer palete but added more colors later.

Awsome! And German. XD Clother, wow, are ver dissapointing trough... And maybe cut the sides a bit?

 I'd just cut 20 pixels from each side xD

Clothes are the only bad part, the face and hair are awesome !

 Twas' wondering how this was done, thanks for the WIP animation :)

 Very cool! I agree that the clothes could be more detailed but you did a very good job at it.

 I found very interesting technique, but the clothes he is wearing is very poorly finished. I loved the palette.I also liked the way you did to get the effect on WIP.

This technique is great and interesting, and the render too. Thanks for the wip animation !

 Nice! I like such geometric play. It's very Yvaral - Vasarely
