I love mathematics. With this work I wanted to make a tribute to two of the most importants numbers in arts and maths: Pi number and Phi number.

So I used the circle shape and the Pi's symbol for π (Pi), and made it golden because of the golden ratio φ (Phi).

This is amazing. The palette is satisfying to look at, and the pixel art is spot on. Impressive. You have my vote.

Thank you Sonnenstein!

Looks awesome, i like ur coloring and use of dithering

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 19:15

Wohooo! tried to make them as realistic as I could dude.

Thank you King of Rohan ;)

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 19:09

Agree with you, I'll polish it a little when I get some spare time.

Thank you!

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 19:08

Yeah gold ingots shouldn't have any dithering, but you have to do that when you have a limited colour palette and need to switch the tonality. I'm a beginner man! xD

Thanks for your comment, I'll keep these all things in mind to improve my works 

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 3/14/2015 15:58

I really liked this, colors are spot on if you ask me.

Limes (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/14/2015 13:49

Its goodbut coulduse a polish in places. alot of the lines are too messy

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/14/2015 12:59

Nice, it reads well! 
But I think that the dither may be too strong, gold lingots are incredibly perfect, because their value must be precise and the dither make them look rough....but that's subjective, they look good 

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 09:07

Thank you so much HZoltan =)

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 09:06

Thanks mate 

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 09:04

Yeah, i guess that with a larger palette and adding some AA (like CELS pointed out) that photorealistic effect could be achieved, but I'm not that pro .
I like the overall colour of the piece though! and I agree with you about the reflection part, it's my fave too.
Thanks for your comment Pheno!

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 08:59

Thanks Mr. Fahrenheit!

HZoltan (Level 6 Major) @ 3/14/2015 08:11

I don't know the color of the gold or anything like that, but for the first view I said, it's like a photo, so in my opinion it's a very good work, congratulation!

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/14/2015 07:37

some people apparantly think that the gold looks too orange. I think it looks delicious. so good. i don't even see the need for any dithering or AA.

Pheno (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/14/2015 07:28

The gold looks too orange, and it doesn't look like real gold to me. Gold usually has something of a subtle green tint to its highlights, and adding that could make this PA more believable. I like the reflections on the leftmost brick.

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/14/2015 07:20

Very nicely rendered gold. Good job!

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2015 06:30

I don't know yet how to make a pretty nice AA =/. But I'm totally agree with you, most of my works would get better with AA.

I read the cure's forum thread when I started making pixelart, but I guess the AA part is too complex for me by now. Will try to edit this work when I'm an AA pro 

Thanks for the tip CELS!

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/14/2015 06:23

This is quite nice, but it would look even better if you cleaned up the lines and applied some nice AA. At a glance it looks great, but when you really start to study the pixel placement, it' leaves something to be desired.
