So, finally I finished it - a christmas love message for Pixeljoint!
I spent over 100 hours to combine all things together but really enjoyed the process - think almost everything you love is here.
My special challenge was to use only colors from the pj head logo (15 colors from PJ Head :))
Actually it easily can been an xmas 16:9 wallpaper (if you fit it constant proportions to 1920x1080 without bicubic scale of course)

And most important thing - I have watching for you from this window, forever, haha :)))

@Flinigan - I didn't plan anything specific, but I was told that it`s very similar to Godzilla(1954). And I've had to live with it :D

Flinigan (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/17/2020 10:48

Is the little square between Bomberman and the Super Mario 3 poster the Iron Giant?

Это слишком мощно! Заставила все фоны на всех компах

My dude, this is a treat. Every time I look at it I see something new.

What the....that's absurd...awesome.


user
Sjpixels (Level 3 Nasturtium) @ 12/15/2020 08:10

This is one of the craziest things I've ever seen. Amazing job man

@Alphonso6 - Bull`s eye! It`s a C18 Locker Aliens from MiB


user
Alphonso6 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/14/2020 08:30

wait there's the locker town from MIB II


user
andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 12/13/2020 14:37

Well, 3 things were guessed:
1. Lego fellows revived by E.T.
2. Robert E. Howard -Conan- book
3. Jason`s Tamagotchi Connection

Drum - it`s a simple Darbuka. I have two of them at home. There's nothing mysterious about it.
One more guy also wrote to me about the toy car, but I didn't plan on it. He said that is from "Christine". Well, so be it, lol :)
The cat is also normal despite the fact that it were tripping a little bit :)

Allright, I give you one last hints:
*pay attention again to Jason and a place near the Worm Guy (MiB)


user

Compiling again from the Discord:
 
Lego city + lego minifigs
Famicom
Conan the barbarian book
We're still not sure about the car. Jinn guesses Monkeemobile or Christine, but I don't think that's it...
Godzilla picture
Is it a drum, or is it the goblet from Monthy Python's holy grail?
Might there be a tamagochi?
 
We're also still clueless about the cat...

Definitely my wallpaper for the rest of the year. A great gift to the community, truly amazingly creative. Thank you! 


user
Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 12/13/2020 00:27

spotted the visionaries figure straight away.  this is an insanely well pixelled piece. Even the tiniest things are recognisable and that's even more impressive when dealing with such a limited palette.

(and elvis is sometimes in my nightmares too... but that's cos i find him creepy as heck. far more than freddy or jason )


user
SeDiceBisonte (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 12/12/2020 12:38

Wow! Just... wow!

Hint -
* This is Ripley Reebook shoes from "Aliens"
* Figure next to bomberman - it`s a "Visionaries" spectral knight - Witterquick.
I am a happy owner of this 1987 model (it always sits on my shelf)  :)

5  items more to go :)

Honey I shrunk the kids - nope :)

Building upon Quiaras list, this is what came out of the PJ chat:

Correction, the things in the top of the book shelf are Critters, not Gremlins
 
Other things that have been spotted:
Worms
Pacman ghosts
Jurassic park
Back to the future shoes?
Stranger things flower
Flubber
Sonic
Hannibal mask
Honey I shrunk the kids?

The figure next to bomberman is still unidentified...
So then we're still missing 3 things??

Great work!


user
Radiolarius (Level 5 Mothman) @ 12/11/2020 21:28

i am flabergasted with this artwork. How do you manage to make such a messy environment with a very structured composition?

Very cool work


user
Erico (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/11/2020 21:17

Absurd!

I love how the nerd is used to his mom literally bursting the door open every time she enters

Aaaaaaah, this is amazing!! 
I'm definitely scaling this 3x and making it my wallpaper xD

Can't stop looking for references, haha. Loving the worms fighting at the tree, the headcrab, flubber and soo many more.

10/10

Just...

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 12/11/2020 08:05

Simply amazing. Made my day.


user
Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 12/11/2020 07:07

THIS. This is beyond perfect for me. Not only the thing about the palette (which totally fits the theme, but maybe you chose it for the palette), it's also the best retro-room thingy I think I saw. Most just stuff posters and devices together, but this one seems very lovingly and carefully crafted. And I haven't even started to look into all the details yet... :D 


user
andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 12/11/2020 07:04

@Quiara - very good, but 13 things was left unrecognized and 1 wrong


user
Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/11/2020 06:38

I think the Trex will eat Jason.

This is not only beautiful, but also very meaningful!


user
andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 12/11/2020 05:51

Thanks a lot, jointers! :) I just wanted to make you happy before the new year

The use of color here is just astounding

wtf andy


user
Harmonica! (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 12/11/2020 00:10

Magical piece! I've been looking over the books but the only title I can make out so far is "Conan". It also really pleased me to see Flubber!


user
Drea (Level 6 Time Traveller) @ 12/11/2020 00:07

This is extremely cool 


user
Flinigan (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/10/2020 23:20

Woah.

Here's my stab at annotating this masterpiece...


user

best pixel art in this site, in my humble opinion


user

Pretty rad.


user
WolfGD (Level 3 Game Boy) @ 12/10/2020 17:46

Wow, this is insane! I can't even imagine working on a drawing for 100 hours. Your effort clearly shows - the amount of detail packed into every part of this drawings is incredible!


user
Mark-MP (Level 3 Litter) @ 12/10/2020 17:23

masterpiece
