Wanted to pixel my favourite parrots for quite some time, so now I did. Also had the idea to use this as a banner for my Twitter, that's why I coose a 3:1 ratio, if not for that I would have made it not that wide I think.

20 colours, took me a bit more time as usual to get them right. No specific reference used, just a bunch of Hyacinth Macaw pictures.

Follow me on Twitter if you like my work, much appreciated! Some gamedev coming soon.

This wood texture is great !
Super nice piece.

Always love your colors and this is great.

@jalonso  that's pretty harsh, but funny. 

Shackhal (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/18/2016 15:40

Massively detailed. Awesome!

Erico (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/17/2016 18:08

I love the colors here.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/17/2016 13:59

Location can really affect when viewing art.
This is such a great pixel but to me these Macaws are regular birds that are a nuissance.
Here many get them as pets and then bore and release them so all of South Florida is now infested with these motherf*&%^rs that just shit all over everyone's cars.
Thay are flyinf rats >.<

One word, beautiful just beautiful.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 3/16/2016 22:42

Wonderful rendering! I especially love the way you did the trees. I'm not sure about the proportions of the birds though. Their necks seem a bit too short, and their bodies - the wings most prominently - realtively small against their head in my opinion.

Excellent work, well done

skamocore: Just waited for the right moment to comment?

I don't know if I can get rid of the jpg, it's bugging me too...

Mandrill: The closest I could get to some was at a zoo too. Unfortunately the fence was still between us. But I have a really sweet Alexandrine Parakeet at home :)

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 3/16/2016 15:03

Reo: Thanks! Yeah, can't get enough of these twisted trees, hehe.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 3/16/2016 14:06

This is super, 17 faves already! (actually, it's 18 now...). But, really, this is fantastic, pity about the jpegging on Twitter :|

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 3/16/2016 14:03

I was face to face with 3 of those guys at the local zoo during a summer job several years ago! Wonderful birds with menacingly large beaks.

Pretty much perfectly pixeled! I love it.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 3/16/2016 13:20

Hah that twisting tree is classic Super17! Very tight pixel work.

waynaul (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/16/2016 12:36

Looks great!  Incredible details

hostile (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/16/2016 12:06

wow, the smoothness of the clusters is impressive... for me the best part is the flora, the parrots are great but the flora is just amazing.

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 3/16/2016 12:03

Paddy: Cool, thanks, didn't thought about that at first :D

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/16/2016 11:46

Beautiful banner and some great pixelling.

Paddy (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/16/2016 11:46

And now it's my desktop wallpaper. Lovely piece.
