For this week's challenge, I'm imitating ilkke's incredibly dark SkeleHarp & DragonPlane style. I chose to do it with half the colours he used, so there is some pragmatic dithering where more subtle changes in shade were needed; one of the few departures from those smooth pieces. I would say the actual lighting on this is more similar to that of the DragonPlane piece. I'm not happy with the coat; it looks rather bland but I only had under an hour left.  I also played around with the palette quite a bit and got some interesting results but I need to stay true to the splendid monochromatic style ilkke has used.

Amazing use of colour, or should I say... lack of

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/30/2008 14:06
I love how people can do this :O

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/27/2008 05:22
Very very cool,there seems to be some random lines around the head that looks as if they where there to keep the anatomy in check,and it just makes it look awsome.

fucbillgates (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/22/2008 11:10
This is a crazy picture i love the weird effect.

ruhtrA (Level 4 Murderer) @ 9/26/2007 03:16

Grandpaw (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/6/2007 06:51

BlingShyne2 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2007 08:42
This is definetely one of my favorites. 5/5, great work, maybe someday you'll be as good as me.

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 5/18/2007 01:07

Kibuishi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2007 17:39
Yeah, congratulations... very nice job.

kakikukeko (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/12/2007 01:38
Congrats on winning this challenge.. it deserved it.. very good job (again)!

rockybolan (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/7/2007 18:12
Your style is so... Different. 
Only 16 colors? 
You are insane man.
I look forward to seeing your next piece.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/7/2007 09:21
what andy said 999999/5!

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/5/2007 05:38
ilkke could really have made this, and i think this proves to a few critics out there that ilkke's work can be pixeled (cause i think there are, or were enough people who didn't believe him)... I think this pixel will (and probably) should win (cause it's so far the only pixel for the challenge ive seen that really matches the pixelers style for 100%)...

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 4/5/2007 01:49
this is my fav work of yours.  good work

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/5/2007 01:04
This had me fooled. Good job!

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/4/2007 17:47
Oooh, nice. Accurate imitation, so far as my eyes can tell. Very nice. Did you follow the same technique Ilkke used?

Pixelfish (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2007 10:28
Fantastic work. Nothing else to say. Great definition.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/4/2007 07:56
Funny how this zoomed instantly to weekly top three, while the original wasn't so lucky.
I think my favorite bit is how you emulated the messy bits on the head.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/4/2007 07:22
Wow, impressive!!

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/3/2007 08:24
This is awsome man.. good job.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 4/2/2007 14:16
Yeah, this is really impressive, the style is spot on!

Ectoplasm On Toast (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/2/2007 13:01
This is the one piece that actually had me fooled until I remembered the challenge. Looking through your gallery, you seem like the man for the job to mimic ilkke's style. It'd have taken extreme determination, patience, and skill to pull this off, and it looks like you got the entry in by the skin of your teeth. Incredible work.

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/2/2007 12:21
your recent works are amazing. A+!

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/2/2007 07:24
Fooled me too. I wasn't even going to look at the piece as I swore I've seen something similar enough to warrant not having to see it again. XD
Great job! You got my vote.

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 4/2/2007 06:40
Great job! You really fooled me.

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/2/2007 06:09
this one rulles i thought its ilkke too!!!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/2/2007 05:29
Fool me as well.=)) Nice work=)

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/2/2007 05:21
Wow. Even I thought it was ilkke! :D

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/2/2007 05:20
I immediately thought "Ilkee" ^_^.  Great work!

Mil (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/2/2007 02:57
Great work, it's beautiful!
Very very close to Ilkke's work, and you only used 16 colors...

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 4/2/2007 02:13
oh shit, I thought it was ilkke. win!

kakikukeko (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/2/2007 01:53
that's great! really looks like Ilkke's style on those pieces...! values and sharp edges..
Nice drawing too! 5/5 !

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 4/2/2007
Me too! Good work Lawrie

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/1/2007 23:25
