My latest entry to Pixeldam. This Bug Museum is for the Neon island hood. The background is the Pixeldam base which is not made by me. I show it here so that the wing and shadows don't look odd to those unfamiliar with Pixeldam.
There are over 200 colors here but most are from the pixels not made by me. My entry is under 60 colors.

Where did I RIP this from?

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 5/26/2013 11:30

I love it, specially the details of the fly.

The composition of the scene make me remember of Shadorwun from Snes http://i49.tinypic.com/1z48glz.jpg

Awesome. Nice idea and execution.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/16/2009 11:04

I hit the 'random unrated pixel art' link, and it gave me...this!

Wow, how could this have never been rated?

Wait...how did it get a top pixel award with no ratings? <squints with suspicion> ;)

But it deserves the award so maybe the randomizer iz the broken.

Great piece J!

7sons (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/17/2006 08:59
holy crap - thats 1 big isobug *staun* - good good job

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/3/2006 17:56
Shadows are always trouble for things I make for Pixeldam. The base, sidewalks and streetlights do not have shadows. If I were, as I have, to make consistent shadows on a piece it can end up looking wierd when the base elemenets don't match. I now go for a somewhat shadowed but not everywhere approach that appears reasonable/believable yet suits the non-shadowed areas. I don't always get it just right. That's why I keep making more You are right of course.

Equinoxx (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/3/2006 11:58
clicked the link in your sig on the forum. got here then thought, dan that's that brilliant piece in Pixeldam ... sweet stuff man. I dig the ornamental ironworkst the subtle transluscency going on on the pavement brought on by the wing is damn good. only thing that strikes me as odd, but not necessarily annoying is the weird shadows going on there's shadows frmo individual corners of the building but the building itself fails to cast a shadow over the entrance kinda hard to explain.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/30/2006 09:28
Thanks all again.
@MoD, I like to wait until its up at Pixeldam before submitting on my gallery here. It took them ages to add it :/

Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 10/14/2006 11:41
Glad to finally see something come of this. The attention to detail here is awesome.

lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/13/2006 15:11
Wow, what a great ISO piece. I usually don't favourite ISO's but this one is definately being fav'd!

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/13/2006 12:44
That is really great man! no crits.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 10/12/2006 14:02

Man what can I say, it's great, you know it :D

I might sound crazy but for some reason I especially like the guy with the photo flash and the baby carriage :)

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/11/2006 20:53

Kind of curious, do all you guys who do these Iso drawings actually use these skills to work on some games for people? This takes talent, and you have it...This is exactly what people want to see when they play Iso based games.

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/11/2006 12:43
And you think anyone would ever enter it?
J/K, great piece. Details are stunning.

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 10/10/2006 02:28
wow, thats awesome dude.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/9/2006 21:45
Thanks all who have enjoyed this piece.

@Jason_c_o, This was addressed in the WIP thread. I see your point and it was an artistic liberty taken in the making of this piece. Just like not all the shadows are correct in the basement floor area and the front legs that also don't shadow. They looked wierd and muddied the ground too much. Again it was an artistic liberty. The wings shadow if correctly placed would have made the fellow going down the stairs too dark. Kudos, to you for a great analitycal observation.

Jason_c_o (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/9/2006 21:38
I don't like the shadow for the (bugs) right wing. For everything else it seems the light source is in the top right, but for the wing it's like it's right above it. All the other shadows are skewed left, while that one is just... there. It's very distracting and pulls the eye away from the amazing detail. Though, still a 5, because that bug is damn amazing!

df0 (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 10/9/2006 11:21
That's really amazing and detailed. I like the semi-transparency and the shadows from the wing.

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/8/2006 13:55
This blows my mind. The "Bug" is absolutley incredible.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 10/8/2006 07:42
I love this, you iso rules.

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 10/7/2006 02:07
Amazing what different kind of ideas you get to finish for your Pixeldam entries. I really like the greenisch color of this bug. 9/9 +fav

Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/6/2006 18:24
This is awesome, the bug's detail is amazing.

Sohashu (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/6/2006 15:17
This is such a great piece.  Your Iso skills amazed me. 


daporta (Level 7 Colonel) @ 10/6/2006 14:48
It's a really  fantastic ISo......one of my top 5 favs in Pixeldam..it looks really organic, live, much realistic. fav automatic. 7/7

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 10/6/2006 14:36
This is one of the best fun works in Pixeldam for me ... That idea blow me away ... I was astounded when I watch her for  first time :)

SeanGraal (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/6/2006 13:12
woah awesome man..6/5 man fav'd

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/6/2006 12:20

I remember seeing this quite a while back.  Truly awesome work, and I agree with robotriot; your iso stuff really goes above and beyond by breaking from that plasticky, generic look that's so common nowadays. Which is how it should be, so keep it up.

Yar (Level 1 Intern) @ 10/6/2006 11:57
The shading of the wings is amazing!

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 10/6/2006 11:53
about time you submitted it.  i think this is your best yet... 

robotriot (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/6/2006 11:32
This is what isometric pixels should look like, not that eboy-style. Very good work!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/6/2006 11:26
Absolutely Amazing. It's so detailed.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 10/6/2006 11:25
