First you make a painting, then you resize it and reduce the amount of colors, then you clean up.

3-step process

original painting

(but cure isn't that cheating?)

Yes! Deal with it!

user

 It's only cheating if you aren't already well known on PJ #madlukman


user
TasThief (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/2/2013 21:51

Lovely work. Great shapes and colours. Reminds me a bit of Mastodon's The Hunter cover:

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/24/2013 12:39

 The brown line between the yellow and purple? Yeah, would probably be better if it didn't break, thanks for pointing it out. I'll touch up a few pixels later

Ptoing: Yeah I was joking about it being a cheat. The process is just as tedious, but with the added benefit of the computer mixing in a few of its own decisions.

Long: Definitely inspired by that 'wildstyle' graffiti aesthetic.

Peyton: Not every painting translates easily into pixel art. Sometimes vectorizing a painting before reducing the size and colors helps, but its not always meant to be.

 @dawnbringer that comment made me appreciate this even more. Also I agree that your painting style is very fresh, Cure. 


user

 wow


user
Peyton (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/23/2013 17:28

If only my painting style wasn't so blended and rough, I would try your method :p


user
Marurun (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/23/2013 17:12

Creepy, weird, and colorful in such a delightful manner. B)

Oh man, that really needed more space.


user
Lóng (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/23/2013 13:08

 For some reason I can't help but imagine this sprayed on the wall of a building, would make for a great view.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/23/2013 12:49

r1k: this pixel is actually on loan from MoMA, enjoy it while you can because they'll probably want it back soon.

jal: added a black border to give more bg space. liondog is still off center to the left a bit but it doesn't bother me enough to adjust it.

reo: thanks! I've been trying to play catch-up after putting way too many skill points into pixel art and not enough into traditional art.

dawnbringer: If only Dali weren't so squeamish about sex, I'm sure Picasso wouldn't mind just one more lovechild.

hapiel: yes. all future works must be copies of paintings.

all y'all: thanks guys. needed a little something in my gallery since I haven't pixelled all year


user

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/23/2013 06:40

It's polished, it looks good, it shows pixel technique, great colours and it's entirely your own work.
I remember seeing the actual painting before hand I have to say I love seeing this in pixels.


user
Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/23/2013 06:37

The painting is awesome too~!


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/23/2013 06:36

Awesome pixelling and colors. I would have liked a little more BG space.


user
r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/23/2013 00:03

you should hang it in an art museum

(yea sorry I kind of modified it, I liked the idea of making it a little more abstract).  Anyways, great work.
