My new avatar for Pixelation. I was a bit tired of the fad avatar, so yeah, just made myself a brand new one.
Will probably add some pattern for the background later on.

A samurai helmet if anyone was wondering.

Beeyewtiful! The style and smoothness are fantastic, and the colors are so striking yet relaxing to look at. Favved!

I love your colors and texture dithering, very nice style!

Panda (Level 3 Stalker) @ 10/17/2007 22:38
The browns inside the helmet are just an experiment for adding a subtle texture and not for adding rust. Just so the whole thing doesn't look like a single color. You know, kind of like when people put different textures over their digital painting to make them more interesting. Other than that I had no other intentions for it.

As for the background issue, yeah, I should get working on stuff that doesn't use that color, but I have my reasons!
At first I meant to make myself an avatar with that color for the background, but ended up being too big. Then I got inspired and decided to make the monsters (they will stay on that color but with textures and text so it looks like they are on scroll paper or something - so far I only showed the monsters themselves).  And well, since I wanted to make another avatar, I simply used the same color as I intended originally.
Uhm, maybe I'll make something for pixelween to spice up my gallery and move out of the monotony though.

Anyway, thanks for the comment.

It's really nice AA. It's just great overall, only few minior things with the shadows. Like that one on the right helm. Where's it from? I just ends abruptly.

looks like yoshimitsu from SoulCalibur, but he's based on the soldier you wanted to make, so thats a good thing :p

The mask itself looks great. Some tiny, tiny, tiny issues that I'm spotting, though. First I noticed the small hint of rust in the black of the helmet (the almost hidden red/brown hue of the palette.). Maybe adding 1 to 2 more shades of the preexisting orange portion of the palette may help add the rust, if that's what you were going for. Otherwise, I find it a little difficult to understand the dark brown's purpose in the helmet as it is too close to the dark gray or black of the helmet for the viewer to see, unless viewed at 2x zoom. Also, the fact that all of these pieces have the same plain background, does get tiring. Maybe adding a Japanese stylized border around it, to give it more of an ancient feel. It's still great though, and if it hasn't been said before, you are one of the best in having EXTREMELY clean pixel pieces.(nice AA, warm colors, little to no stray pixels..." Very nice. How much?"..) Great job...
