A fun little piece of character art to practice a lot of pixel art techniques. It's not about the destination, but the journey itself. Even if you haven't moved an inch all afternoon
Another comment of admiration after 5 years.
This has a lovely storytelling quality to it. I really want to know more about there characters and their adventures. Colours and technique are also fantastic!
I love the style! Has a sort of... WindWaker feel to it. :)
Absolutely love all of the character in this! Wonderful work =]
Awesome; reminds me of old-school pixel art.
@CELS- What do you think is in the barrel? Bourbon for days, son And thanks!
@Pixelart Kid- Thank you!
Why are their noses red? Bunch of buffalo-riding drunks, is what they are! Beautiful work though. Very beautiful.
Personally, I prefer the original to Hapiel's edit, because the original is warmer and more vivid, which fits the style. Hapiel did add some nice contrast and shade a few places (pots, pans, carpet accessories) though, which was nice.
Wwwooooooooowww is so beatiful!!
Hmmm, I like your second edit better than the first, you're right that it unifies the piece more, but it kind of changes the overall temperature. I'll spend some time experimenting with palettes and such. Thanks for the edits, they're very helpful!
I had the feeling all the colors were quite close to each others. I hoped that by reducing the saturation on the whole thing and then selecting just a few things to be extra saturated again it could get more 'pop'. In the end it iss very close to the original though... I added one color for the cap ;)
Here I also recolored a few items, which takes away some detail but joins the whole thing more together....
That's so lovely. Congratz!
@Hapiel- Of course I would like to see it. Palette making is really difficult for me and any input is welcome!
This piece is a lot of fun! Well done :D
I made an attempt at connecting your colors a bit better, but this turned out very hard! You already did a great job :). If you want I can show you what I came up with but it is not very different...
You are becoming one of my favorite artist!!!
Amazing style, very solid drawing, I love it!!
Looks great. What a nice results for just practice.
Absolutlely lovely. A true pleasure to the eye! :D
Thanks for the comments, guys!
@EdJr- Thanks for the crit! Still trying to figure out dithering and making a harmonious palette that has enough contrast in it. I've been read before for a lack of contrast. so I'm still working on that, too, hopefully I'll get less harsh shadows eventually.
Great work! The use of the light background is refreshing.
At first I thought this was foolish too, but I didn't recognize the color scheme as his and there clearly are differences in outlines and shading. I'm not a fan of the dithering in any of the places you used it; the harsh shadows (especially on the barrel) show up too much, and maybe the colors could be more balanced. Aside from that, you can tell its quality from the similarity! Lovely style and composition.
Really excellent piece! Great style
No idea why but the characters resemble Fool's style. And thus from the preview I thought it was Fool's piece! Can there be any bigger achievement!? Great job man!
- Gorgeous style. -
Thanks! Journey is such a good game
I had to knock back a lot of the detail on the barrel to make it fit the piece. It's definitely a compromise and I've learned a bit about drawing barrels. And I used the grey lines to kind of tie-in the grey from the underbelly, maybe not the best choice, but I kind of like it.
Thanks for the crit, probably going to leave it alone, but going to keep your notes in mind!
Wow, I really love this. Coincedentally listening to the OST for Journey when I saw this, this is incredibly awesome! So much character in this, great colours too.
My only crit would be that the barrel could perhaps use a bit more touching up. And I'm not a huge fan of some of those broken grey lines that describe the fur on the bison (is that a bison?), might be just me though :)
Fantastic job never-the-less!
