Veni, vidi, pixi.


(for the weekly)

A barely onate piece of leather chest armour with some gemstones thrown in here and there. I wasn't too sure what design to go for initially, but ended up with something that would fit well into the realms of ancient Asian rulers I think.

The dithering using the colors to shade is awesome . It provides depth and thats hard to pull off, nice work.

@ AirStyle

Haha, fair enough!

Sounds like a great idea for the next sprite challenge.

@ mac & cheese

Far from being practical and realistic! However, I love pointy things on my armour.

Thanks! :P

@ Syko

Thank you very much!

You are right, it is better to alter one of the sides a tad.

Thanks a lot! :)

I love the shading on the bumpy leather parts.

Top notch work man!

You know, when I first looked at this, I thought it was a gem statue of some really fat-looking guy with the chickenest of legs, his head sitting completely in his chest, and hands coming out of his shoulders...turns out it was just chest armor.

The materials are excellent

That's a great way to use gems!

The textures are visually enjoyable, especially with this great palette. I don't like pointy spots on armor where there would be body movement though.

Syko (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/31/2016 12:34

I think it looks too obviously mirrored. Besides the symmetrical shading, the middle line where the symmetry axis is is two pixels wide and is really noticeable imo.

Otherwise it's a fantastic piece.

Oh, this is amazing...
