Another "lost and found" old stuff - its'a pixelled reproduction of an old illustration created by JIM BURNS - a great well-known sci-fi illustrator (sorry, but I don't remember the name of that illustration).

Amiga, Deluxe Paint, 32 colors, all pixels robotized by my hand, one after another.

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/4/2006 15:10

cool, has a nice sci-fi feeling to it.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 11/27/2006 11:31
Wow this is fucking amazing...It comes at you.

holy shit.

This is much better than your others. And at 32 colors, there are no questions as to whether or not it's pixel art. I have to say though, the blue could certainly blend in better.

This is insane!

haz633 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/19/2006 14:54

O.o At first I thought that this was a photograph... seems I was wrong.

slay (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/4/2006 01:58
Thanks for all your comments.

The B.O.B.: It took me about 3 weeks to create, but it was many years ago
(about 10 or even more). Now I should create the same piece in 3-4 days.

And as I'm not the original creator of it, I'm not sure what is the
source of the blue light, maybe it's a space dust? :] Anyway, the
composition is more interesting with this blue color.

Ongaku (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/2/2006 19:09
Very cool what a real piece of art

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/2/2006 14:54
The detail and lifeness is incredible. The colours chosen "harmonize" (as my old art teacher would say) with each other perfectly. I keep trying to find out what exactly i'm looking at, but it all adds to the mystery i suppose!

jonny rice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 2/2/2006 02:30

wat is it ????


acrylicana (Level 1 Intern) @ 2/1/2006 15:33
I most definately want to check out the program you use definately interested.
Anywho, nice job all the same. Great to see some old school sci-fi art fans.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/31/2006 23:50
14 colours? Damn!
Five star and a fav for sure.

(I'm getting the feeling I've said this before)

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/31/2006 23:50
D'oh. Make that 32 colours.
PJ needs an edit feature :(

dammit, why do you have to be so amazing. It just isn't fair, you demoscene, or should I say deity-scene bastard. Great friggity-friggin job as usual. One question though, if this thing is on the moon, why is there some type of blue(almost earth-sky toned blue) reflecting off the top of the machine? Or is it just a shade of shinyness poppin' off the machine?...and if you have time to answer one more question, just how long did it take you, or should I say, does it take a pixel artist to get to the level that you have already achieved? Once again, too damn amazing...


lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/31/2006 18:27
Wow, that looks amazing. I really like the textures.

sensation (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/31/2006 16:28
simply (or intricately?) amazing!

MadMage (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 1/31/2006 14:09






... No words to describe it...


Flameruler13 (Level 6 Cannibal) @ 1/31/2006 13:14
good detail but it looks like a hunk of metal

Nomade (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/31/2006 13:11
OMG! Awesoooooome =D 5* + fav

Atooi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 1/31/2006 12:40
Wow! Great job!!            

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/31/2006 12:34
That is plain awsomness! Don't you sceners ever get tired?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/31/2006 12:18
I know its not yours but, that composition is awesome. Thanks for turning me on to Jim Burns.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/31/2006 11:57
Very nicely done. Subtle dithering to make a good texture and no 10,000 colours, one of your best imo.

HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/31/2006 11:53
Holy crap, wow.

Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/31/2006 11:48
WOW! That's insane! Good job! 5 stars and fave!

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 1/31/2006 11:47

Evil-Ville (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/31/2006 11:46
