Beware of that Heart Gun! It would give you... you know what.
I spent most of the last 4 days on this. Pfuuuuu. Dawnbringer's palette is beautiful, but difficult. Used all but black.
Not made a WIP file, but here's a layer dump.
as usual refreshingly original concepts
I've missed such a great picture !
This is brilliant! I love it!
Oh this is so clever!!
Mazette tu as vraiment fait d'énormes progrès ces derniers temps. Ca devait faire des mois que je n'étais pas passé sur PJ, c'est assez bluffant de voir ce que tu parviens à faire maintenant. Je continue à suivre ton travail, même si je n'ai plus guère le temps de traîner sur PJ, et encore moins de pixelliser :)
congratulations on win.
Well, I think it feels empty because behind the few tall buildings, there's... nothing.
You need to add some sort of background. Maybe clouds, maybe outer space; anything to add some extra spice to the scene.
It's good, but it feels sort of unfinished.
Really good idea.
Thanks for the votes! <3 ya.
@ Jeremy: have to agree about that shooter, I tried a number of versions and it never came anywhere near what I wanted. It's supposed to be sort of translucent with light inside.
@ previous comments about bg: I think I'm seing it now, there is a feeling of emptiness somewhere that I can't exactly put my finger on, much less find the fix to. Thanks for pointing it!
I heart you.
How much you get for the bear skin? ;D
Most creative entry won, I just dislike the weird pillowed heart shooter :P
Metal of the arm's great, the coronary arteries on a Valentine heart is faintly disturbing ;D
i like simple 2 color background provided the shapes are interesting (yours is).
About bg: it certainly is simple, it was an option from the start and I never considered making it different (although it took quite a few trials to get it right!).
I just love sketchy, misty bgs; and I don't really see a way to add anything to it without messing with the composition and readability. Esp with that palette, value jumps being either tiny or big.
I actually considered dithering the ground a bit. Maybe that would help blending bg / fg without messing them, I'll try that. And I'll keep that crit in mind anyway!
@ DB: let's not sell the heart's bear's skin before we kill it! (French lore)
This weekly challenges' diamond in the rough.
The characters are wonderful! Really like the way you rendered the hearts, although the background could of used a bit more detail.
Excellent idea, I could not think of anything to do for this one. You went above and beyond the average idea :)
Just awesome! Very fun idea.
Original. Best part of this is the car under the closest heart's left arm.
very original and creative
you got my vote but I agree, the bg is to simple
Haha! Great idea & execution. I think it's safe to extend congratulations on your first challenge victory.
Very unique take on the challenge, and the rendering of the heart and glass bubbles is beautiful. My only complaint is that the background seems a bit under-rendered in comparison, but it does emphasize the foreground. Lovely work!
Awesome Idea! mess up with tthe words,this is just awesome! :D
