Cool! The design doc was a very interesting read, I learned a bunch of things, like connection between armor types and weapon types. It's always fascinating how many things like that won't occur to modern people. Very cool design too. So it's a blade of 100% quartz?

This captures so many of my goals in pixel art. I love it! Going to be studying this. Also I have to echo what Korban wrote.

Really happy to see discussion about fundamental conventions within this medium still going on in 2022 and it's also interesting to see someone else use castpixel's method because most of her recent work that I've seen is rather naive / or using a high resolution with few details - not that much pixel pushing on micro level, more huge clusters. Cool to see your take on a small, detailed sprite using this approach.

So yeah. Neat-o!

Really love this. It's retro in concept but quite modern in execution, in my opinion. Awesome use of colors.

Recognized her instantly from the preview. Well done! :)

That's really pretty! A very nice balance between photorealism and pixel art interpretation with clusters. Not to mention the colors.

Thanks, Cyangmou! Glad to hear there was improvement! Will keep coming back to this tricky pixel rain though.

Really cool. Amazing colors, very much a feast for the mind and so different from most of the pixel art people do. One of my faves of 2022 so far.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Great design, love the use of 8 colors and large clusters. Also dig how the moon and the stars peering through the clouds hints at that cosmic horror and human insignificance. It's like a portal. 

Looking at it now though, I wonder if it might be benefitial to use some of the brighter colors on the monolith and ocean waves directly beneath the moon, outside of Dagon's shadow, making them slightly shinier. I don't know.

Awesome stuff. What I wouldn't give to play a game like this.

Thanks, Trigonomicon! Just trying to apply the lesson from a3um again. Looking back at it, I think I need another go.

Thanks, Rewind! Well, if all goes according to plan, I will do another 16 of these before Christmas, from the same universe. So... I hope people like castles and airships.

Incredible. Super impressive. What was the process for pixelling this? Do you use color reduction on a photo and use that as a reference or are you just eyeballing everything?

Fantastic rendering! Going to study this one, for sure. Also, for a moment I thought you had pixelled cure's death on a donkey.

Really great piece. 240 frames! Super impressive!  (I hate to be that guy but it's usually spelled 'indefinitely'. But hey, artistic freedom!)

Thanks, Umbohr! Yeah, same universe. It helps me to have a universe and a story in mind, makes me push myself more, I find.
