"Silent night..." in english. An attempt at dithering and antialiasing. Of course - it could be half the colors used (or even less probably), but to me it was always more about the effect, than theoretical limits (and still - every pixel and color here was handpicked, lol) So... hardcore pixel artists will not be pleased - sorry ;)

Edit: for those who don't like the colors, here's the first version of this image: - 30 colors :P And no, it wasn't a stage in work in progress - it was supposed to be finished, but people war saying it's primitive, not pixelart and such, so i made the second one - the one uploaded here :)

Yeah, i know, it should be no more than 16 colors (and in some glamorous old style c64 mode ;)), maybe next time...

Looks great.

Far to many colors though, could be reduced easily to 16...

Otherwise, very smooth.

I can see numbers on some of the test patterns, but not all of them. Red and green hate me.

Myfault, and best thing is - as the doctor said - i do have some color vision deficiency :P For example - i can't see numbers and letters on most (almost all) of the test patterns (those with dotted letters and stuff) they make u watch when they test your vision ;) Funny, isn't it?

Losm, would you notice if i didn't tell you or you didn't check? :)

BTW i've been working on it... and like i've said in description - it was all about dithering and antialiasing this time ;)

You did well making this scene look like it has distance.
