@Jalonso: Perhaps accounts like gizzmo, natata, grandpaw, buggi  & bjrotas need a little closer IP inspection? Not that I'm trying to imply anything ;D

Snitch15 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2009 03:51

Oren_shtiv (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/18/2008 09:49

gizzmo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/10/2008 04:38

Antago (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/21/2008 10:16

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/23/2008 10:50
Almost perfect, amazing

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/17/2007 16:48

mrs.fab (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/14/2007 14:36

Froli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/10/2007 06:11
Ugh, way to blow your reputation.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/9/2007 00:42
So the WIP is actually a fake! How bold and how embarrassing!

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/7/2007 22:19
yeah he did a real good photo edit.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/7/2007 15:54
damn man, good work on this!

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/7/2007 13:39
If you don't believe me check the picture below.  The 2nd head in the pain's image has the exact same eye size as the resized photo. That's not a coincidence.

BTW I like how you used the smudge tool on this pain.  Really brings out the inner pixel. Yes, you used the smudge tool, it's why the 1st head looks like he has a tumour on his chin and it explains the weird grey patch near the hair on the last head.

Guts (Level 2 Corporal) @ 7/7/2007 13:08
Whoo, it's hard to think this is not a resizing picture as there were a long work on it.

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/6/2007 18:46
This picture is not pixel art. In the below picture,I resized the picture jalonso posted to 33%, changed the contrast, then merged part of that picture to pain's picture. The result, a flawless blend of course!

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/6/2007 14:09
both pixels are 100% pixel art ... you have wip for both pics ... i have eye withness for rino on pj and for this piece i don't know anybody that could draw this from head so i didn't think that i needed to say i looked at photo ... i would like to compete with anybody on this site on any compo, prefered to be 30min or 1h with judges and wip pictures sent every 5min or so ...

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/6/2007 13:04
I have to say, I'm seeing lots of random colours. I don't think it's 100% pixel art. After seeing all the comments on this piece, I remembered another piece of pain's work, which also had this sort of suspicion on it. This is the piece. I'd like to think both pieces are full pixels though, they do look good.

buggi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2007 10:51
sjajno ! cool !

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/6/2007 10:20

In which case a simple, “I used a reference." (plus ideally a source) would have been adequate/appropriate. I would say there are enough dissimilarity in the piece to that would mean no repercussions should take place. However there are also enough similarities to warrant speculation given you didn’t provide a reference. I personally still think the piece shows a lot of good skills and my judging won’t severely be phased by this turn of events. I suppose this could be seen as a bit of a lesson for everyone if you are using a strong reference for a piece say so.


on another note; I appreciate that jalonso brought this to attention as it is good to know people are looking out for the integrity of the gallery.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/6/2007 00:43
it's so funny ... it supposed to look like that moument ... i was looking in america monuments book when i was pixeling this ... belive or not it's on you ... rest my case ...

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/5/2007 19:33
A comment sent to the PJ staff regarding this piece:

Now. Despite the wip anim. Despite pain's good reputation. This is just a little too similar for me too believe.


Contrast +50%, resize 33%, moving around a bit (animation):

You tell me.

ZeroFive1 (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/5/2007 12:07
Very realistic. I love it.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/4/2007 01:33
thank you all ... maby i'll do something with "USA" letters 'cause i've done it in a hurry ...

Pukeko (Level 2 Dealer) @ 7/3/2007 13:31
This is brilliant, you are an amazing artist! It'd be awesome if you could do an animation anyway!

Adam (Level 9 Major General) @ 7/3/2007 01:38

Wow! I'd really like to see this animated!

Guts (Level 2 Corporal) @ 7/3/2007 00:57
Impressive, as always

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/2/2007 23:25
Nice one! I don't recognize all the characters but the pixel placement is wonderful.

PippySaid (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/2/2007 20:03
This is a GREAT piece, and Zeid said all the critiques, so... all I can really say is Good job, and too bad you couldn't finish it for the WC :)

Corpse On Rails (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/2/2007 18:52
I forgot who the third one from the left is, but he looks alot like Chuck Norris..

thesalus (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/2/2007 14:37
I'd have to agree with zeid about the text. Or at least, I don't think the text should be in three dimensions.

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/2/2007 11:51
My two issues with the piece:
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CHANGE THE TEXT! It does the piece no justice at all, and this piece deserves good text.
Secondly, George Washington (I'm not American but thats who he is right?) seems to have a tumor next to his chin. Seeing as its a rock monument I'm not actually sure if thats what it looks like. But I missed the deformed little bit of his face at first.

Darion (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2007 02:17

I thoguht it was a photo first!

Great work.

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/2/2007 00:52
Good stuff! This would have been awesome with animation.

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/1/2007 22:49
if i hadn't seen the WIP i would definitely said it was not pixel art..awesome stuff!

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/1/2007 18:32
This looks good. The antialiasing on the letters of USA doesn't live up to the immaculate sub-pixel detail on the rock surface though, which is quite odd.

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/1/2007 16:24
Wow, that is so realistic, I almost said "rip".  Great job, 6/6 dots.
