a tall-pixel experiment. will prolly never touch them again. :) the lighting is not really consistent, the palette kind of hasted, and the background doodle left jaggy as it was where i started. . . but this is where i felt i should stop. enjoy!

alternate palette version:

Nice robot, great colors chosen, and this works great with the tall pixels!

Good sh*t ! ;) Reminds me Amiga days and oldskool graphics.

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 10/13/2009 00:17

Destiny (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/12/2009 21:06

Lovely, you did a really good job on this.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/12/2009 11:27

Nice! I prefer this pallete. Feels like acrylics

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/12/2009 04:01

Tall pixels are exactly what they sound like.. they're pixels which occupy 2 "normal" pixel's hieght, while still having the width of one "normal" pixel.

crow (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/11/2009 18:05

what are tall pixels?

strangles (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/11/2009 12:36

This is great work. I love your all works.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/11/2009 11:48

I like how the keyboard is a paino keyboard

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/11/2009 11:32

Nice stuff. Some of the aa is a bit blurry in places. 

Ky3bMu4 (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 10/11/2009 09:01


Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/11/2009 05:16

Wow, this is amazing stuff! Fav'd!

Only thing, the fingers shading stands out rough, even banding.

Both palettes are good, I think I like this one more, but not by much.

Reo (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 10/11/2009 05:11

Great work Skurwy, much love <3

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/11/2009 00:57

thank you everyone!

that's an idea, mathias! if only id had it posted in a wip thread before id surely go for it! :) you should try tall pixels some day, its kind of funny when you see all the tricks you have learned before are not applicable in places. again, i had to work simultaneously on tall and normal pixel sizes.

niteroach, hehehe, thats a weird fixation but you know, i love it! :D

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/11/2009 00:10

looks good!

NiteRoach (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/10/2009 20:48

I want 'his' head to take a picture of me holding a pumpkin.... I don't know why.

Artic (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/10/2009 20:29

This is....


AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/10/2009 20:15

great colors, great pixeling, great idea... great everything. <3

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/10/2009 19:25

I like it a lot. It's amusing. I've never had the desire to tackle tall pixels, wide pixels are not so bad, though. Only bugger is the human forearm, just doesn't seem to mesh well with the chunky robotic figure; would be funny if his hand was clearly not designed for playing that keyboard. Great job.

ATM (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/10/2009 18:51

This lines are so fantastic! And so smooth, so melty...

Ummm....I admired your pixel arts.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/10/2009 18:39

Amazing pixel work, it's not even noticeable that it's really made up of tall pixels.

Great work!

Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/10/2009 18:20

Great colors
