why is that lady in the fountain though?  And that escalator is gigantic.

really nice work!

oomleo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/1/2008 09:59
yeah! hahah "wrong-flags"! mmm.. so, thats not the flags.. but, iron sheeting.. hehe..
thanks again for all comments!
hope my next artwork could be better than this one..

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/30/2008 19:47
Wonder why my comment was deleted? Anyway it basically said that I noticed the flags arn't blowing in the same direction as each other. That just seems kind of weird to me.

this is huge. although that's all it is. :/

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/29/2008 20:33
Don't forget hot chicks. If the CBN stall in the middle was supposed to be the focus (ie. the person seeing the ad sees CBN stands out) then maybe you should have had the left building moved down and to the left - so that the lines from the buildings converge on the CBN stand (as they do for right building). Also, if you had space around the CBN stand, it would stand out too. Like if everything is cluttered, your eye would be drawn to empty part. Anyway, well done getting paid for pixel art!

oomleo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2008 15:31
oke.. i see..
thanks for all..!

..just enjoy the hottest stuffs..
theres RHCP, theres hand-dryer, hair-dryer, sauna, hot-coffe, tv hot-news, hotdog, barbeque, fire-eater, hot-rod, hot-pants, hot-line, and, aah.. hotspot for the internet..

cannot do it without iso..
pardon me if theres a lot of un-pixelart stuffs..
again, ..thank you all!!

oomleo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2008 15:07
oohh.. i forgot about the rules.. 3075? it should be 256 colors, right?
so, 3075 is too much? not qualified for pixelart?
aah.. thats why i used *.png..
(for print-ad..)


Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/29/2008 13:48
I have to agree with Gil, too. Generally I find generic eboy-esque iso pieces like this overly loud and low on technique.. banding, ridiculously high colour count, almost a complete lack of AA, inconsistent light sources...

Not that this is intended as a shot at this piece alone, just the style in general. Iso can be beautiful, and smaller, more polished stuff is likely to win me over every time.

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/29/2008 13:13
is that flea from RHCP under the WIFI sign?

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/29/2008 12:03

i'm a bit surprised that none of the past comments contained '3075'!

3075. thats the color count, threethousandseventyfive! far too much if you ask me.

Mad Bear (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/29/2008 07:39
i personally like iso.. but i have to agree with gil on most of the stuff.. he did make some valid points there.. and you should look into your human characters most of them look like really stiff mannequins.. somehow it's cluttered but not cluttered enough.. haha.. just my two cents worth..

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/29/2008 02:04
Looks good. :) Maybe you should have the outline for the balloon black, not dark grey. Its an advertisement isn't it? Shouldn't you try to draw attention to the ad using high contrast? So, also make the flame really bright (oh, and the part where the flame comes out seems out of perspective).

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/29/2008 01:22
Yeah reminded me of eboy as well (because of the bright colors) but they always have less detail... They never use patterns etc. Anyway I still think its pretty cool, especially the hawt rod :)

Gil (Level 6 Major) @ 4/28/2008 18:14
I do a lot of iso work. I don't do any eboy style work though.

The point is, looking at this piece, I feel you have a lot of stuff to learn before you get into something this size. This piece lacks composition. You can't expect something this random to look good. If you want to clutter it, try to make a composition that makes sense and draws attention to the right parts. Right now everything is just fighting for attention, there's no unified palette to pull it together either. Consider the fountain and the arc, both could never be in the same place under the same lighting condition, it looks like a totally different style.

oomleo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/28/2008 12:08
thank's a lot, pals!
- hehe.. waldo is not included.. (hope my client will asks for waldo.. but, they dont..)

..needs more time to do some more details.. but this time, me do focus directly for composing & fill the empty area.. so here it is! sorry for the lacks-of-detail.. my argue: never try to catch the details! just enjoy your eyes for their activities and the "hot" things..

(have you ever tried to compose all of your pixel characters and stuffs to a scene? ..isometric will! me! hehe)

for "GIL": have you ever creating an isometric style before? bored, isnt it? ..but not for me.. ISOMETRIC IS GOOD!!! hehehe..

Gil made the point: this is low-quality in every sense -

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 4/25/2008 08:48
Great work! )

Nora (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/25/2008 08:32
What the heck, this is amazing.

KwIjL (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/25/2008 06:34
wow really great job in the detail XD this is crazy work! think the pink castle is a little too much ;)

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/24/2008 20:13
1000 hours is half a years work at 40 hours a week.  jesus christ that's a long time.  nice work!

xeroxz2k7 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/24/2008 17:35
Love it. Especially the air balloon

Amazing work here. High scores coming your way!

Gil (Level 6 Major) @ 4/24/2008 16:31
Lots and lots of contrast issues here. I'm not really a fan of cluttered generic iso either. It's been done before, a million times even...

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/24/2008 16:26
I love it! Instant fav!

happy bacchus (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/24/2008 16:01
Great! but, I must agree with Darth Manrab,  ... there's too many detail!!

but it's very cool anyway

taquito143 (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/24/2008 15:53
that's a lot of details..
add favorites

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/24/2008 15:41
Now that's a ridiculous amount of detail!  Great job!

In 10 hours, after I've taken in 1/2 of this image, I'll comment further ;)

D-Puff (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/24/2008 14:47
