Expressive piece. Very atmosperic.

This is pretty good. Awesome lighting and scene.

elend: well, it is not really possible to antialias in this mode. you usually have only 2 colors...

some artists use dithered lines to get a similar effect, i try to get along with contours at the edges of the 8x8 blocks to get the one or another additional color (which is rare for the overall picture, but useful to avoid clashes).

I must say, usually I am not a fan of the "sketchy" or even "unfinished" look. I just love antialiasing and prefer it to anything else... yet, it's a really nice picture with a superb mood and great lighting. And as I understand it the sketchy look is mostly (?) due to the technical limitations?

Either way... it just looks gorgeous and well done. Love it. Especially the dog.

mr fahrenheit: thanks for the compliment :)

well, this sketchy look is a bit part of the way i pixel and the 2-color restriction. guess it is because of the combination of avoiding avoid dithering and the paint brush color gradients. not 100% sure though, because my pics became overall more and more painterly over the past years.

 You made the colors look really well together! Awesome job. A little sketchy though.
