This is just too cool.

 you got so much better

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 2/4/2011 19:28

Just do a nearest neighbor 200% stretch on it.

iamlowlikeyou (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/6/2011 13:47

Yeah, I'm gonna try it out - I think it looks really great  :)

EDIT: But if I save an image in photoshop with 2:1 pixels, like say a .png file, when I view it the pixels are squared... How do I maintain the 2:1 ratio in the viewed file?

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/6/2011 12:40

Thanks, dude. I highly recommend any serious pixeller at least try wide pixels.
To do them, I use Photoshop set to non-square 2:1 pixels. That way when I draw 1 pixel, I get 2.

iamlowlikeyou (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/6/2011 11:33

I LOVE this piece!

How do you do the wide pixels?
I mean is there a program that can draw wide pixels, or do you "make them" yourself by placing two seperate pixels side by side?

Holy crap

  It´s a celtic pattern.. My mom tattoes these a lot. ^^ It´s really interesting how many intricacies they designed...

Well.. Wide pixels... These.. Generally give painful results... At least to me... Generally pa8inful results. But what you got is great!


Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/22/2009 15:16

The middle hammer looks really cool! But I especially like the emblem on the bigger hammer:)

willfaulds (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/22/2009 14:34

Great stuff.

Though I think I'd be dissappointed upgrading to level 3. Level 2 is awesome...

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 4/22/2009 11:54

Except the first one I really love 'm! Also it was fun and interesting to watch the wip earlier on!

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 4/22/2009 11:28

You're right, I did receive some good advice on the largest one. Updated.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/22/2009 10:50

Not even giving credit to the pixelation community...tsktsk!


Non the less, neat.

Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/22/2009 09:42

The two to the right are amazing (Lefty could need a little more detail), but all in all great job.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/22/2009 09:41

They look... Heavy, I can almost feel them, awesome job

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/22/2009 09:13

Niiiice! the two on the right looks really nice!

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 4/22/2009 08:28

I hear ya, but I'm letting this one go, letting it stand as a testament to the little progress I made while learning; something for me to look back on. Next set will have much more continuity.

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 4/22/2009 08:26

I really like these, the progress you made in the style is awesome too. Always been a fan of the C64 palette too, nice work there dude :)

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 4/22/2009 08:25

Sweet. I would love to see a bit more work on the first hammer, though.
