Well, here it is. 

I've worked on it for a few months on and off (mainly off, haha) and it's come to this.

You can see the wip here at pixelation. They gave me some amazing critiques; I'll have to thank Mathias for everything he said and all the tips he gave me. I'm also thankful for Alkaline (esp. ), EvilEye, big brother, Gil, and ptoing's crits and everyone else in the thread. Special thanks to Helm for inspiring me to draw from life more, which has turned me into a guy who draws 24/7. :)

Other thanks go out to BAB, CShad, Frar, Des, David, gnarf, and various others. You're all great.

This piece has so much life to it - it's simply beautiful. What I've learned here is that even with light colors, you can still make things pop.

 its soo good but perspective looks kinda screwed

skallian (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/22/2011 03:44

Lovely! although I think that bridge's perspective is a little confusing. Anyway I really like the piece : )

SatTheArtist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/18/2011 21:10

wow! all your pixels are beautiful

atb (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/10/2011 00:52

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/5/2011 11:10

Damn, all your work is good. Great gallery!

fairyvilje (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/25/2010 15:36

Wow It is awesome :) Really, I love this pixelart!

gavinslete (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/8/2010 20:29

This is amazing! Very ethereal, it feels like I am going to get cotton candy candy if I walk across that bridge.

C4V3 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/13/2010 08:55

This is awesome

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/17/2010 01:20

Well deserved second place! Congrats my artistic friend. =) 

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 1/16/2010 23:34

Numba two! Way to go!

Zedeem (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/16/2010 16:01

oh. my. god. This is so awesome!!!!

XverhelstX (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/2/2010 10:21

This ... is ... just ... awesome Dex!!!

I'm just looking for this style in my game, is it possibel to help me out?

I'm in need of such awesome landscapes, sended you a PM.

Kind Regards,



Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 12/28/2009 01:42

I absolutely love the colours, light and contrast of this! Awesome! I could start daydreaming staring at this!

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 12/14/2009 08:56

Nothing sinistered intended. PMed.

skooba-dude (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 12/8/2009 16:09

Awefully inspiring. I might try pixel art again.

j.negrón (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/8/2009 15:08

don't be mad of this haters; your style is great!!!

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/8/2009 13:55

Congrats on being a terrible poster. 

If you feel something is wrong with it, tell me why, rather than posting 'I don't like this' like a straight up jerk, bro. If you don't like the style and have nothing else to add other than that, please refrain from commenting. Thanks. And the bridge's perspective is a tad off; congrats, that nowhere means the rest of the scene is so PICASSO. Your comment seems more like you're coming at me rather than trying to be helpful. 

At everyone else, thanks a lot, you guys are awesome.

EDIT: Inq, If you want to reply to this post, send me a PM or hit me up on MSN. Don't derail the thread. 

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 12/8/2009 08:30

Hm, I'm not a fan of this picasso weirdness.

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/6/2009 13:15

 Beeeeauutiful...    the only thing I don't get is how you controlled the colours so nicely, keeping them somewhat muted, but then the sky is so over-exposed, like there's this harsh bloom-effect there... it's as though there was an atom bomb that went off in the distance, that's how bright it looks.  I guess it's because it's Eden in the distance, so there's a kind of holy glow emanating...?  Well, it's good nonetheless.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 12/6/2009 11:09

Dexellent! You have a unique and unmistakable style...a bit like reading childrens books on LSD

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 12/5/2009 01:03

perfect. you cant really critique abstract art...

KoA (Level 3 Stalker) @ 12/4/2009 21:54

 This makes me wonder where the path goes. A new mystery awaits!

blendaz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/4/2009 13:32

As green said ... it looks so good - for a moment even i thought it was Fools'

Again - very nicely done!!! 

It's really relaxing and made me feel good ... cuz i'm ill :[

Shoopzation (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/4/2009 13:29

Holy man, that's so beautifull, had a great sensation of peace :3

blendaz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/4/2009 13:29

In-credi-ble! Its fantastic - looks so real ... its like im on that bridge!

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/4/2009 06:01

some people like the crazy perspective, so i'm not worried about it :) I'll definitely pay more attention next time, though!

cheers, everyone!

eldiabolito (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/3/2009 22:43

<3 + insta fav 

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 12/3/2009 22:21

"*nitpick -The angle of the rocks (perspective) on the bridge are too off." - Haha, yes he's painfully aware.

Good job on it. Upward and onward.



Phantom K (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/3/2009 17:27

Another great piece  

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/3/2009 16:33

Very nice piece.

*nitpick -The angle of the rocks (perspective) on the bridge are too off.

Destiny (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/3/2009 14:19

Now you add my name to the helping list >(

Looks good~

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 12/3/2009 12:38

Wonderful piece. I really like your pixelartworks. They are getting better and better. Really love the colors in this one, as well as the overall style.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/3/2009 10:11

It's the pixel Art.

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 12/3/2009 10:03

 I love your work, though you seem to be improving with every piece and soon perspective won't be a problem. A shame as I like these.

Another good Job

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/3/2009 08:26

so you finally finished :) 

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/3/2009 07:50

That was quick.

4tochkin (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/3/2009 07:24

This piece still has many wrong things which need to discuss.

But we can see here much work, and your searching, and it deserves praises.

Ivy00 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/3/2009 03:35

Beautiful colors , Some perspective a bit off, but what a wonderful piece.  It makes me want to go to that place and just sit and listen to the little creek.    Great job :)

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/3/2009 02:02

I smell a monthly top ten...

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/2/2009 23:03


Ryath (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/2/2009 20:45

 I love this piece. Definitely a 5/5. The only comment I could make would be about the large blank white sky, but even that looks very good here.

CeeY (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/2/2009 20:32

Stellar, I was hoping for a troll under the bridge though.

saehn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/2/2009 20:31

I went to Pixelnation and read the C&C there... some really good advice. My two bits: perspective issues aside, I really like this piece. It comes across as though errors were purposeful (I get the feeling they weren't after reading the thread, but again I like it anyway). Secondly, I don't think that standard "accurate" perspective is absolutely required for every drawing, but my teachers gave me good advice: "Learn to render form accurately before you create abstractions of form. That way, you'll have the spatial knowledge required to have your abstract form represent what you intend." Great work! :-)

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 12/2/2009 20:26

 What an absolutely magical place!

Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) @ 12/2/2009 19:45


Duxfever (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/2/2009 19:15

 i would have sex on that bridge

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/2/2009 18:45

 I absolutely love the blue-white ramp in the sky and water <3

(btw, I think that the reason the bridge looks odd is that the underside edge of the arch becomes indistinct against the more vertical bit on the far side)

TheFox (Level 1 Seaman) @ 12/2/2009 18:17

Great job. The colors are absolutely amazing.

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 12/2/2009 18:06

Fact: Anything with Eden in the title must be epic.

This is seriously one of the greatest pieces I have seen from you, and it still has that Dex style to it! 

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/2/2009 18:06

Good stuff. Some issues with the perspective on the bridge but maybe that's intentional?

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/2/2009 18:04

what marth said! i think.

great work my gewd sir.

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/2/2009 17:38

For a second there I thought it was one of Fools. O_O

MarthisMarth (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/2/2009 17:06

Dex tied me up in a bag, and drug me back to this place just to Fav and Rate this thing. But now after looking at it for a little bit and admiring the fantastic color use and composition I'm glad he tied me up in that bag and drug me here.


crazy70 (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/2/2009 16:30

Looks great dex :D

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 12/2/2009 16:29

 One of your finest pieces, I absolutely love it.

darkspines35 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/2/2009 16:26

Bridge to Eden...comes at a good time right after playing a ton of Assassin's Creed II and it's Apple, a piece of Eden.
