full on!

Zheros (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/17/2009 06:45

Vraiment bon !

Vampyrell (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/12/2009 15:02

Amazing work!

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 5/9/2009 14:54

As much as I hate tracing and colour reducing, I can't blame him for doing so... If he used the original image in that way, it has been edited so much that you can no longer call it an edit... does that make sense?

God_Is_Evil (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/7/2009 09:25

This has got to be traced....

The lines are sooooooooooooooooo close it looks like a color reduction that was edited

to sorta kinda make it a little diffrent.



Check out this 1:1 pic of the hulk i drew....I also made sure all the lines matched

exactly but as you can see by the sorta diffrent shading it's not a color reduction...


And if you can't tell im being sarcastic, Well im being sarcastic.

I love it.  Looks a lot like the ref pic. Amazing details you got there.

sapphira83 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/7/2009 06:24

looks more like suffering. background could use a little work. the details are very good yet disturbing.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 5/7/2009 06:09

In my opinion, this doesn't emulate the emotion sadness. It's more like vagrancy . . . or the need for cheap dentists in third world countries. Not impressed with the whole trace thing, either. No merit. Bg kills it. It' better off with no bg, it's just a disraction. Long live Photoshop!

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/7/2009 05:59

 In graphics gale when color reducing to 256 colors, you can specify the number of colors (eg. 14).


Reminds me of shadow of the beast 2 loading screen ... can't find a screenshot. Anyway, maybe 32 colors and a blue robe would look good? Her teeth need to be rendered nicer imo (ie. less messy).

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/7/2009 00:25

i think the background could use some work, bring it up to the level that the face is done at.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 5/1/2009 18:12

The christmas is too linear.

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/1/2009 03:30

ugh, thats awesome but so god damn creepy :SS:SS

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/29/2009 21:52

The face's shading style is significantly different from the ref and the cheek wrinkles are more pronounced.

It's just always good to say whether or not something is traced, just to save potential accusations :)

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 4/29/2009 21:44

I voted No cause I suspect about the number of colors (16) and some pixels:

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/29/2009 16:58

Well I'm not great at spotting these things, but some spots are definitely quite different, for instance, the womans (her) right cheek, is much different than what was pixelled. Or her eyes.

But some spots, like the forehead, are so similar, it does raise questions. Many of the inside features seem to be copied/traced as well.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/29/2009 15:31

No question its traced, I can live with that because the ref is mentioned and shown. What I wonder is if it was pixelled after a color reduction of the original. This would be a no-no for me.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/29/2009 13:59

I quote squirrelsquid

it's not a color-reduction, probably traced, but PA at all.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 4/29/2009 13:09

I do not think it is a color-reduction...

It's a sad picture, and not realy my taste, but I voted Yes, non the less.

MARIAHRISTOVA (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/29/2009 03:01

The picture that impressed me very . My idea was to make it 1:1 with the original (in which I am accused) only in the pixel art. Christmas is linear in the original which I do not see anything wrong. I set to work and it just so you can compare them. This work is incorporated much work.

Pico (Level 3 Stalker) @ 4/28/2009 14:36

There could be something on the background

grid (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/28/2009 10:45

I  agree with Antiboton, its just a copy.

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 4/28/2009 08:43

I think this is just a color reduction with some really small changes. Look at this:

tcvetelinka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/28/2009 02:03

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/27/2009 21:22

Ah. i did, but now I've had a good look there's definitely some suspicious bits, namely the shoulder hood area where it's been mistraced. Some WIPs would clear up any misconceptions.

ssm-04 (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 4/27/2009 20:59

OMG!! gives me the creeps : O

look's cool


Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/27/2009 09:15

At least partially? Compare it to the original image.

InkBreath (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/27/2009 07:22

WholyFrickinHell this pic is awesomme. Love the shading of the cloth. The Bg is really wierd tho-  but ok.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/27/2009 00:28

Awesome. The lines were at least partially traced, right?

Quake (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/26/2009 14:10
