this is just absolutely jaw dropingly beautiful!  The background is very well played too

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 2/22/2011 18:49

Thank you ev'rybody (:

@Theo: The background rule is there because it's often just due to laziness. Especially for sprites where the ability to work on different backgrounds is a neccessity :D This Piece is universally recognised as needing its background too :)

@AIGuy: I agree. Even though I pixelled the entire flower first, I feel that that grey works far better with the green XD Oh well. The saturation of the red highlights probably isn't helping matters either...

Nice one mate, really stylish!

AIGuy: That's not brown, not really anyway. A warm grey at most. Looks fine to me.

AIGuy (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 2/19/2011 21:20

 This is real nice.  Although I'm not sure about the brown in the rose.  I think maybe another color could have worked better, but brown is my least favorite color, so I'm biased.

Truly an excellent job in every possible way :)

Excellent job. The colors are quite incredible. :)

Something close to .

Really good! With so few colors, and really dark and moody.

great control of the medium

That looks great.

I do not understand why many pixel artists disapprove the use of a blank background - for some transparency is the only way to go...

Like in this case: the black backdrop (and the way the rose is positioned) definitly adds to the atmosphere of the piece. 

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 2/15/2011 02:33

nice =) 

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 2/15/2011 01:17

Huh ok, fair enough! I like what you got here. Great colors.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 2/15/2011 00:28

WELL, there's no real meaning to it. Just wanted to pixel :D Started off with the flower right in the middle of the canvas, then decided to move it down to make it feel like it's lurking in the depths of something. "Insidious" comes from the (moving?) thorny vine to the left of the leaves, makes it sorta seem like something's off with the rose.

@Ego: thanks ^.^

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 2/14/2011 22:35

So what's the concept here? Any personal meaning or anything?

I don't exactly associate the adjective 'insidious' with beautiful roses very often. And all that blank dark void, too. Explain.

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 2/14/2011 22:25

That right there is a gorgeous piece of pixel art.
