I never really upload to this site, and thats because i never really make small art pieces. Mine take months, and this one took 2-3 ones. Ive been making quick progress in pixel art foe a year now. Yes, a year, with only having done art for one year prior to that. The first piece i ever pixeled was this oc called Fherla. Shes been dear to my heart ever since the first idea of her was a league of legends username meant to sound cool, and then her first actualization in visual design as my only and first terraria character.

Shes changed much throughout the years. Shes gone from knight to rocker. And this piece is my ode to her and all the times weve been through together.

im not a master by any means. This shit took long i tell you. And this piece has had many purposes. One of them was to find a palette style that fit me. The aim was to create something around 128 colors, since my research on the whole color palette thing indicated that they were supposed to be a power of 2. I overshot it with 4 in this piece. Like i said im no master, but im just beginning my journey. This was also a palette test.

i dont think the size of the actual palette is an issue. 128 colors is far less i strongly assume than my favorite pixel game - heroes of might and magic 2. Always loved the vibrancy of the colors in that game, and thats why ive pushed my saturation level to beyond searing neon.

but i do respect your rules, and i do want to improve. In this piece there are some colors that i do know do look very similar, especially if you use the color space that my phone does, which im posting this piece from.

like i said, i dont really know how harsh you are on this. I could edit it down, dont think i will because i want this as a milestone in my journey, and see how ive progressed. And i also do not think the multitude of too similar colors really drag down the quality too much either. Theyre rarely placed together, and its a large piece so if you just look at it from afar on a reasonable level i dont think its super noticable.

my art doesnt get much attention. Not the point either. But i consider this one of the best pieces ive seen (sure theres better out there, and sure im biased. It contains so much learning and so many mistakes ill find it surprising if any of you other admins or people looking at this agrees). But its definitely the largest i know thats for sure (500x1500).

If you want to give a new artist a shot, one which i think will be worth your time down the line, do upvote and approve this.

i look forward to turn the world into pixels one day with you all.

Dude holy shit.

THIS IS AMAZING!

Honestly you say all these things in your description yet you managed to kill this piece in such a good way that in every asepct you've managed to pull off a beautiful piece.

I liked what you did with your last piece and now I'm convinced you got real talent behind you. I can see this getting into the PJ Hall of Fame eventually. Don't humble yourself you earned bragging rights on this without a doubt!

Keep up the awesome work Wyndoella.

Awesome. It looks like if a psychedelic rock album cover from the 70s and a pinball machine had a prodigy child.

Definitely love myself some magic. Theres too little wonder in art today. Part of why i make it the way i do.

Focal points are definitely not my thing. I like to make my pieces like those old puzzle boxes with insanely detailed motives. I see my stuff more as a treasure hunt, which is why it doesnt get much attention on social media. You kinda have to stop and look and search which is the point (one reason i limited myself to pixel art otherwise it probs draw every single atom lol). Doesnt work that great on insta and twitter for sure.

And yeah regarding the whole color thing. Im just unsure man. Pixeljoint seems like a pretty chill place. But like everyone else i talk to for some reason play this place up to be the scary super villain of the pixel art community where everypiece has to be flawless and on the top of its game. Never really understood but i do have some caution since i dont really understand the community but the surface aspect of it.

Probably will. My next piece is a 600x900 something like that for my 300k-ish word book i wrote in a year. Its gonna have a refined palette, but feature the same style mostly.

Lol dont get my hopes up. I appreciate it. Theres alot of godly art posted this month though. But like i said, my art doesnt get much attention. Its niche. But i do like the sentiment a lot!!!

Great job! I love the retro style in both the colours and rendering. The flames, for example, are maybe not how I would pixel them. But they remind me very much of early 90's pixel art, like the game Loom. And like you say, Heroes of Might and Magic 2. You've really done a great homage to that vibrant style.

I hope you keep posting. We need more like this. :)

This is fascinating, I keep zooming in to find detail after detail! Absolutely beautiful use of color, and I wouldn't worry too much about the relatively high color count, especially for a drawing as intricate as this.You seem eager to improve, so even if you're not satisfied with some aspects of the image, I have no doubt that you'll improve in all of those areas quickly

magic by itself, wonderful!
