Rests in heaven Old Sol

Which is many and which is one

His beats reaches all

While drumming  the Sun

I have no idea what is going on in this picture.

All of your works seem to have a rather colorful palette. Its great but sometimes it gets a bit annoying.

I think your 50/50 dither is fine. No, it's nowhere near as technically skillful as Helm's work, but you used an effective technique to simply add a few new colors without increasing your palette size. The illusion was opaque to me--as I said, I had to zoom in to realize it was only RGB--so I call it a complete success. This doesn't feel like an RGB restricted palette, that's what I like. The only exception is bright greens and blues around his/her lower back.

[EDIT] Also, you used some nice line-dither in the reds on the lower half of the image. So more than just 50/50!

@Hatch: Now that you mention it, yes I'd seen it a long time ago but didn't quite remember it. Cryptomnesia at it's finest, I guess! However, Helm's not only more skilled overall, but got a true grasp on dithering (while I only applied the easy-to-remember 50x50). Seeing the comparison now makes me want to improve this

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/14/2009 19:45

I missed the color count and I didn't understand all the dithering until I zoomed in. Nice work. I really like seeing what people do with this uncomfortable palette. Are you familiar with Helm's?
