If there're only 3 entries you have a 100% chance of winning a good ribbon!

Remember Simon Comix?

People will enter stuff last minute when they realise there's no entries yet

I predict there'll be 7 entries :O

This piece by Lawrence is also a good example of DoF in pixel art.

I made an entry, but deleted it because i didnt like the zoom (blur) effect... It was an o.k. piece but it drags down my gallery XD

I believe this one has an accurate portrayal of depth of field. I could be wrong though, because I just briefly skimmed the wiki article.

I think this won't be really easy to make nice-looking... You will have to be able to make things sharp and also make things blurry and up to very blurry by probably over-aa'ing it... I like this challenge

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 4/15/2008 01:28
Do you really think it will have the most questions??

Might as well post a link to it then. :D

It's not that hard to recreate this in PA. in fact, you don't blur at all.

I've got a sample in my gallery.
