Started out as a discussion between INDIGO and I regarding AA in isometric pixels. I still find it rather pointless but my AA was out of practice so its all good.
The dragon inspiration comes from Gas13.
Here I show the balloon on a plain BG, the version for Pixeldam is all transparent for the beach hood.

This piece won a DD and A Golden Nugget over at DeviantArt

You have a very good patience ratio to draw this... I really like the bright blues and curly clouds.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/30/2007 15:46
Damn, man, I missed it. Not missed actually but saw the preview, decided it's a rip, then was checking in a rush, calming down and moving further...

I wasn't reading neither author nor description. Nice surprise :)

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/18/2007 15:57
I didnt even realize this was iso until I looked at the basket! Good job!

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 3/18/2007 09:39
Although the thing is round, we can see the most important parts of the dragon, thats tricked out. The dithering of this one is really perfect. Great work.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/16/2007 06:35
How did I miss this beauty? 5/5

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 3/9/2007 08:21
Wicked good. Shows the meaning of 'art' in 'pixelart' :)

Forge (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/7/2007 10:12

Words cannot express....


See...that didn't do it justice.

Xanon (Level 1 Private) @ 3/6/2007 05:37
Holy shit, beautiful!

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/6/2007 05:35
Omfgh, this is not possible, it is not happening! How could I miss such a great work?

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 2/13/2007 20:36
Spectacular work jalonso.  If you ever create a massive eBoy-esque piece I think my eyes will die of gladness.

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/13/2007 06:04
110 % Perfect!   [5/5 +Fav]

Omegavolt (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 2/13/2007 05:18
Score 1 for the ISO crowd!  You're my hero, Jal, this is amazing! :D

Stacy3601 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 2/12/2007 15:59
*picks jaw up off of floor*  wow..... that is absolutly beatuiful

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/12/2007 13:52
Holy Iso, Batman! Wow, I didn't know that you finished this. Looks great, Jal. The dragon design is wonderful.

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 2/12/2007 04:54
Beautiful outcome for lots of hard work, patience and persistance. Fantastic!

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/12/2007 00:38

*reads WIP thread* All that hard work paid off, I'd say!

You did well defining the bulges and keeping the perspective. Making all the tassles show the direction of the balloon is also a nice touch. And of course, the design is just beautiful. Top work!

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/10/2007 18:48

incredible, I saw the Wips to, you sure made alot of different designs before deciding which was the best choice



schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/10/2007 14:52

yay i did ISO-stuff a couple of times but this takes some experience id say :)

good job

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/9/2007 19:55
thanks all. Forgot to place thw WIP thread link for this pixel:

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/9/2007 19:07

hmmm... *taps chin* could use more aa >.>

JK! it's freaking AWESOME.  Glad to see your personal war is over and jalonso is one again :)  Way to go

rats (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/8/2007 11:42
I think you prooved yourself wrong, :D it looks amazing with the aa. This convinces me (alongside that one from miascuf that aa belongs in iso.

[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/7/2007 18:04
Nicely detailed, like always. ;) Good work !

Feron (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 2/7/2007 12:04
good stuff. the scale of people to balloon size is a bit off. Aa makes isometric pixel-art look better.

Nevhkah (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/7/2007 11:53
Loving all that blue. Nice work. :D

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/7/2007 07:25
Easily your best yet!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/7/2007 05:58
looks good jalonso :D good work!

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/7/2007 03:59
just so i say it before larwick does....try not to AA 45 degree angles :D but it's good, very detailed.

MadMage (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 2/7/2007 03:52

Jalonso, I'd say you have outdone yourself! 

The basket looks a little strange to me, but looking at the rest, who cares?

de Thch (Level 1 Private) @ 2/7/2007 00:58
Bellissimo! Complimenti!

seakingelebit (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/6/2007 20:43

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 2/6/2007 20:21
