1st part for Pixeldam project ...
Try to make ISO with irregular forms ...
Source of inspiration - Jal ...

3rd part is here

2nd part is here

Thanks for help from members of PJ forum and from Fool !

Update from 24.02.2008 - repairs of the horse, add wheel for rope, whip and repairs of some other small elements ...

note: shadows from car, horse and peoples are too dark and with scratches, because they are for Pixeldam background. I dislike some parts, but will try to make better in next part of the work :)


Cheers :)

Fantastic really cool style!

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/25/2008 18:02
awesome, although the axe in the stump looks strange to me. Thats all I can find, its perfect.

This is super quality work right here.

I believe that the angles along the NW ridge of the pond look a little confused, but that's about all I can find that seriously sticks out to me. I guess I could comment on the colors used for shading the yellow areas looking a little flat and monochrome. The hay could probably benefit with some saturated browns and a mid-tone orange.

I can really appreciate iso work that attempts to break the default iso look, and this one succeeds at it so well.

Woah. Just woah. The roofs look so good I'd like to eat them. Someone hire this guy, make him do an RPG game with these graphics and sell the game to me. I want it.

umcelinho (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/24/2008 19:20

Fantastic piece! Reminds me of Core Design's and other amiga adventures somehow. I only wish you'd drawn the characters a bit less deformed.

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 2/22/2008 22:45
Adarias and I wait all your works, because they have style with different specific charm :)
Morgan cook your help in PJ forum was great ;)
jalonso  long ago I want to make second piece for Pixeldam, because one of my first work was for there and when I examine some time your ISO works always thinkin about new :P
Badassbill great help for roof was from flaber
Bacteriophage agreed, but I dislike greens because in some parts they haven't enough integrity :(
xXHalfieXx thanks roofs are too big parts without nothing and I was lazy to make them :)
funcravers thanks ;)
mrduke I make more composite parts, but the piece goin with excess of details that is why I remove them in last variant and will use for next piece. That overwork I dislike in the piece and now but ... :)

manxana (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/22/2008 22:42

Elwin (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/22/2008 22:35

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/22/2008 18:32
