Looks nice. I like the abstractness.

I'd say he used a 3d render as a reference for lighting and shading to get it just right and then pixeled it, it is PA you can see in the dithering, he just used alot of inbetween colours

crazeeee this piece is just amazing i hope i get that good

Wow, kinda suprising how well everything blends in.

user
Bloo (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 4/21/2008 00:24
Warwolt, I know it's not obvious for this to be PA when zoomed out, but try zooming in and you'll see some extreme AA and good dithering. That's the reason why this looks so realistic. There's also no other program you can use to dither, because dither can only be created using the pencil tool. It's impossible to dither using the brush tool judging by its round shape.

Anyway, I think this piece is great, love the palette, and your style is amazing.

Warwolt (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/21/2008 00:44
No, pixelart is stuff you do limited to paint. Its a bit like saying "If I take a photo of a mountain and put a layer on photoshop is it a painting then?"

user
Warwolt (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/20/2008 15:45
I will never ever belive you if you say you made that by hand, thats just BS.

user
Pandora (Level 2 Corporal) @ 3/9/2008 23:22
Not sure what it is, but I love it! haha.

user
Boonzeet (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/8/2008 07:40
Wow. Honestly that has made me rethink quitting pixel art.
Either you are really really really skilled. Or you used an auto ditherer.

Plus where is this auto ditherer in paint?

user
DJ gman (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/2/2008 18:38
it is so smooooooooth :O

For the sake of authenticity, if you ever attempt another piece of this magnitude you should include an in-depth WIP. Regardless of this being hand-pixeled or not, it is a fantastic piece of art.

I'd worship myself if I could pixel that well. However, I can't, so I'll have to worship this picture instead.

user
Circa (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2007 12:52
It's so good that it doesn't even look like pixels. :D

Wow! Really! Wow!

if you did that by hand, then I'm mickey mouse, or really impressed

user
jh-pixelzzz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/19/2007 09:41
awesome shading!!!

user
rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/28/2007 21:24
I'd just like to point out that even MSPaint has auto dither, if you know where to look.

On the piece itself, imo, if it can't be done in MSPaint, then it's not pure pixelart.

A WIP animation would help in these cases, of course.

user
WaterCloset (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/26/2007 18:55
If you make something in photoshop and then go through in a pixel program and touch it up, is it still pixelart?

user
MediYama (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/11/2007 07:58
Whoa.. you hand-made all pixels..

user
Inferno.Fighter.IV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/8/2007 23:34

Can we really name this pixel art ? btw, impressive

user
vorofikin (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/10/2007 04:23

user
Bogdxnuuu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/7/2007 15:17

I don't want to belive that it was made pixel by pixel!

Way to realistic... keep up the good work! 5/5.


user
Rappybas (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/14/2007 12:57
Abstract and it has something special... :D

user
Imp (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2007 14:12
the dithering is one step from unreality

user
Ghastly (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/1/2007 14:36
This is absolutely AMAZING!
It would have taken me much more than a month to make that... If I would be capable of doing that...

user
khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 2/1/2007 13:18
I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but this piece looks so much like grafiti. Awesome!

user
Zhou (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/18/2007 18:14
It is absolutely insane pixel art.

user
TillimannBanana (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/9/2007 17:56
by the way... what did you expect? you used that much colors and such a perfect aa that it is difficult to believe... i cant understand your reaction. if you made it by hand: enjoy the others who aren't able to draw such pics!

user
TillimannBanana (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/9/2007 17:52
I give you 5 points although I can't believe that this is pixelart but I will not make you guilty until proofen innocent so: Very Good Work!!!!!

user
Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/18/2006 18:12
whoa  totally  awesome!

user
tacky (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/10/2006 14:42
wat the shit! im crap compared to your artwork!!

user
eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/29/2006 19:14

im really just not sure.  the dithering that i am sure he did do is top notch, but zoom in on the blue tenticle thing...  to me it looks rather.... smudged.... i happen to have a pretty extencive knowledge of photoshop, and i am pretty sure i know what im talkinga bout when i say it looks smudged...  another part i noticed was the dark orange part in between the tenticle and the nose thing.  looks rather like a gradient with some soft brush smudging.  again, not trying to call you a liar, or to even accuse you of photoshoping.  but as you have seen here, if you make something this good,  you are going to get a ton of crap from wanabees...

to me, its not really about wether you made it pixel by pixel, more about how it looks on a whole.  it really looks that much beter with some photoshoping, by all means photoshop, but dont lie about it.  (not trying to accuse you)

Jetstar (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/23/2006 16:19
Very smooth style. Love how everything seems to melt together.

user

user

That's... sweet. I love it. And Amiga... :3 Love old-skool stuff. I can't really see anything weong with this piece of art. I can only hope that I could have skills like this some day. 5/5 and fav.
