Flawless victory.

Looking at your gallery you seem to be the new soon to become Fool

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/14/2010 18:27

I like the movement and life you've given the tree. I would try to add a little more depth too, maybe make the roots turn less saturated as they recede into the distance. You could also color force the "tongue" root. The colorful flowers on the left side of the image burn through the image, since they're by far the brightest elements. The fairy's pose also seems a bit stiff. If she follows a looser curve, it would help balance the curve of the "tongue" root. The owl seems a little calm despite the action around him. It might look more like an action snapshot if he was reacting to the fairy and the tongue. Great work otherwise; I love the personality of this piece!

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/12/2010 08:21

 impresive colors :D, i like... but it need some  air... the composition is overleaded of elements and "all" are in the same importance of colors and contrast. But is REALLY good... a personal opinion, i dislike the fairy! :( jajaja but is because i dont like much the fairy characters and stuff :P. Good job, time to check your gallery! :D

blendaz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/12/2010 04:36

One nice idea:

Why don't you make some good white shadow around the fairy  so it pops out of the other things ... it will be good to concentrate the views on the fairy :]

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/12/2010 01:05

looks very bolougthish

I'd add a DOF effect to differenciate stuff...

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/11/2010 20:28

You'd do well to reevaluate selout, vary your textures and use negative space to suggest composition. Right now it looks too busy but that's not such a huge problem, just a point of taste. Nice colors and I appreciate the atmosphere.

x-death (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/9/2010 19:50

i think the tree and owl are just amazing!

but i feel like the fairy and most of the other things in the peice don't work as well.

Turquoise (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/9/2010 05:42

Beautiful. @_@

TheChan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/7/2010 09:32

It's a bit hard to read, but nice.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 3/7/2010 04:14

It would be interesting to see and hear more about this work. It looks impressive and smooth but I was surprised when the color counter said it's 101 colors. Maybe you could share your methods, steps of this work, used program. It would be very interesting.

Egor (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/6/2010 23:58

"Probably the nicest large pixel image I seen here in ages.  Nice work."

So true.. This is just epic :O

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 3/6/2010 18:29

Geez this is so cool! This took some intense work.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/6/2010 13:51

Probably the nicest large pixel image I seen here in ages.  Nice work.

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 3/6/2010 13:17

This is really great! I love the colors and the textures, and the fairy is posed perfectly. She really conveys the attitude of a fairy, instead of just being a nude woman with wings. Well done. My only suggestion is to watch the color count! You have over 100 colors in this piece. I had graphics gale reduce it to 50 and you could barely tell the difference. Controlling the palette from the beginning would allow you to achieve the same effect with even fewer colors. Just something to think about. Overall, though, This piece has charm and I'm a fan.

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/6/2010 11:36

maybe you could change the preview. the preview didn't look well. maybe its more interresting so:


MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 3/6/2010 11:35

 That's some lovely detail, there :)

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/6/2010 10:41

Bon, encore utilisable est votre merveilleuse image, :)

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/6/2010 10:32

Your colours and textures are gorgeous !

Maybe some anatomy issues on the legs and the feet, but I'm just quibbling over details :).

You don't need to increase the general constrast, but you could add a darker outline to some elements to make them stand out of the scene (roofs, branch). You need depth !

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/6/2010 08:47

Ok, this is REALLY great. Love it. From the colors, via the technique up to the overall image.

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/6/2010 08:10

What the.. Your gallery just gets more and more amazing..

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 3/6/2010 06:55

There's something about the background in the top left area that makes it fairly hard to read for me. The actual tree is fantastic in every regard.

Turtlechan (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/6/2010 06:46

¿Te contesto en ingles,español o frances?

sur le contraste je dois dire que j'aime comme celle-ci , tous mes travaux de pixel utilisent palettes de colour peu saturées , je n'aime des sprites plus saturées come capcom ou le tien donc avec cela je croie qu'il est tout propos , dans le sujet de la fée en effet qui as raison et je l'ai déjà retouchée bien que j'aie utilisé le même nombre de tons de colour.

pardon par l'orthographe,je suis un catalan adopté à Paris à temps partiel xD


Heartless (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/6/2010 06:22

WTF..fuc-king lil turtle...ull begin to kick us out? XD

about the contrast i personally prefer like u did , looks soft and good , with more contrast it would like more saturated like the edit down.

well thats depend of the stylish and the palette of each one , me for example i prefer for my personal works another and completly different style of palette

about the fairy maybe u should replace the last color close to the black for one more soft , in the tree it looks good but in the fairy , how is more lil it contrast more

anyways thats a good job ;) keep that way , fuc-king turtle ¬¬

mambazo (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 3/6/2010 04:32

Fantastic picture! The only issue I have, is with the description, shouldn't it be more like:

"Its time to leave home, the world awaits you..."


"Time to leave home, a world waits for you..."

other than that, superb work!

Zedeem (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/6/2010 02:02

So awesome, this should enter the Hall of Fame!

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/6/2010 01:49

 wunderful, but i would give it a bit more contrast. here i made an edit: 


skooba-dude (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 3/6/2010 01:32

I enjoy all of the shades of colour and fine textures in this work =). I think though the fairy stands out a lot in comparison to the background because of such contrasty colours. You might've been going for that, though it just doesn't seem to fit IMHO. Kutgw (Keep up the good work) :D

Khoryl (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/5/2010 23:15

I love the shading, great job 0.o

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 3/5/2010 22:47

It is amazing, the only thing I'd wish is a bit more contrast.

JediDude (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/5/2010 22:14

 I sense top pixel art of the month! This is incredible!!

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/5/2010 21:48

wowww That's incredible the pallette and texture are beatuifull =) love it

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 3/5/2010 18:00

Oh my gosh...............

So amazing.  Texture, shadings, lines, so perfect.

Only things bugging me are the owl, heads a bit big, but not really noticable, and the preview.  I would rather you censor the nudity and put a warning in the title.
