@Frost: thank you very much!

I was at GERP this year, and most likely will be at Datastorm, not sure about Edison though, would be cool to see you!

SnowTabby (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/9/2017 21:28

this is ture crazy

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/1/2017 23:52

Not just the hair, and you probablu know that. I could spend hours nitpicking your sttuff but It's moronic to nitpic your stuff. You have some real skills there pal. Hope to see you at the next Edison. :)

I can spot your style from a mile away. Excellent rendering with an interesting palette.

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/28/2017 09:47

@orangemagic: Thanks a lot :)

Skin texture is 'temporary' - I planned to render it 'full pro' but run out of time.

(the same for 'background')

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/28/2017 09:44

@Frost: - thanks Frost, I'm glad you like it !

(not much else on pic  :D )

orangemagik (Level 6 Time Traveller) @ 10/27/2017 01:47

Hair, skin texture - superb!

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/26/2017 10:13

I love the hair.

She looks Chinook and hawt.

shm31 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/25/2017 14:33

Best use of colors I've seen in a while.

You're awesome, and your work is awesome. Keep up the amazing work !

Macaroni and Cheese (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/25/2017 13:58

All this palette science is flying over my head. 

But yeah, quality stuff.

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2017 13:11

@Fleja2003 - really nice to hear it :)

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2017 12:51

@IvoryFalcon - Thanks maan!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2017 12:48

@Dawnbringer: thanks a lot! - I will try it - thanks :)

-  looking just at numbers - it seems like more european skintone, I was aiming into african - like this time - with some 'rusty' addons to make it more 'live' (but I will check this for sure :)

As most of my works - its 'party version', finished (with compromises - like no 'real' background)  at event there was no time for proper rendering 

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2017 12:25

@JerryPie: thank you :)  Unfortunatelly there will be more c64 portraits I'm afraid :/ 

but also more amiga pixels in pipeline - waiting for better time :)

Fleja2003 (Level 7 Lotus) @ 10/25/2017 12:17

Your drawings look so life-like it's scary good!

IvoryFalcon (Level 5 Soldier) @ 10/25/2017 12:06

Damn impressive work, that hair is stunning :O

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/25/2017 12:04

Very neato! 

Just so everyone knows; it's a bitch to get smooth, good-looking gradients with a 12-bit palette.

Maybe you already tried it, but there's an option to turn [153,136,136] into [153,136,119] plus [153,153,153] into [153,153,136] for a slightly warmer skintone (which contrasts the colder hair and background quite well).

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/25/2017 11:52

very nice, glad to see another non-c64 portrait from you. great hair! 

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2017 11:14

Glad you like it :)

Faherya (Level 4 Knight) @ 10/25/2017 11:07

Damn, this is incredible! The lighting in the hair is excellent.

JeffSturm4nn (Level 3 Chief) @ 10/25/2017 11:07
