 A pixelation of this image: i160.photobucket.com/albums/t199/ooshmaster/twentyfirstcenturyfoss.jpg

"21st Century Foss" by master science fiction artist Chris Foss, painted as the cover of the book of the same name, published by Roger Dean's Dragon's Dream company. 

Had a lot of fun with this one. This palette was very enjoyable to use and worked surprisingly well despite looking super hard at first, and I managed to put all 15 colors to good use.


last minute edit: took some advice and made the background a little less busy, taking out some stars and making the rest darker.

Ah, I wanted to say: good ship design, but it is not yours originally.. Still nice :)

too bad it was an awfully bad rail shooter.

 That is an awesome cover. It is also very likely that chris foss influenced the artist who made it. you should try to get your hands on a copy of his book, it's a great one.

also, that desing reminds me of this http://www.mobygames.com/images/covers/large/1238867261-00.jpg

Nice. Very impressive.

ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/7/2010 01:11

got it, thanks.

BG stands for BackGround.

It is an amzing design, however I can't take credit for it. I'm still getting this pixel thing down, I hope in the near future to be pixeling my own glorious spaceships, hurtling through galaxies glinting in starlight! one day.


at least this was good practice and a fun challenge.

also, xellie, what does BG stand for?

Xellie (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/6/2010 21:44

 I think you did great. Don't think it detracts at all that you pixelated a BG. So what? You did it awesomely. Also, I think that the space background fits. It looks like the original - so why change it. Well done.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/6/2010 21:13

at first i was like "holy shit that looks like an amazing desing" and then i realised its just a resampled version of the reference using this week's challenge palette


ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/6/2010 20:18


Not sure what I should change. any suggestions?


ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/6/2010 20:03


the background was super hard.

Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/6/2010 18:48

I think the background is overpowering. Detracts from the wonderful ship. :)
