Still a single pixel on the little doohickey in the window, though I doubt you care at this point.

Khook (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/14/2015 22:17

Awesome crabs, love the colors exploitation

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/3/2014 03:19

me neither. I keep wanting to come to pixelation but am scared of the commitment...

Anyhow, this is brilliant

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 5/2/2014 18:52

It is. I've done very little thinking about pixel theory myself.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/2/2014 14:12

you're so awesome that our mortal pixel restrictions aren't enough for you any more! <3
Lovely lovely work. Is this Helm's idea? The other crazy talented guy!

Cool crabs!

beetleking (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/1/2014 07:49

Clean as heck.. Lovely piece..

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/31/2014 01:41

A very nice use of  14 colours. Great tone and atmosphere and I like the contrast between the greys for the tiles and colours for the aliens.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 1/29/2014 22:32

Great stuff. I think the text says "Drop down, reverse direction and increase speed"...

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/29/2014 17:56

Gotcha..I didn't see you wrote that the first time I looked at this image.. looks like a fun challenge though, and turned out great.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/29/2014 15:01

In this piece I'm trying to eliminate ALL single/stray/lonely/isolated pixels. So there's nothing "wrong" with the pixels he pointed out, I'm just trying to get rid of them as an added challenge.

Cure you are awesome!!!

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/29/2014 14:48

@Adam - In that image you linked, the ones inside the white box..would those really be considered stray pixels? Serious question here, because I do that same thing from time to time in my art and was never aware.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/29/2014 12:37

Giant enemy crab in space! Obviously based on battles which actually took place in anciant japanese history.

Really liking it. :)

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/29/2014 09:48

Pretty cool =)

Banding alert in the eyestalks :(

Schoq (Level 5 Harbor Seal) @ 1/29/2014 09:03

Spotted the no-isolated-pixels construction before I read the description :D
What made me start looking for it was the starfield, which btw works well for this because it reads to me like distortion through the glass.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 1/29/2014 09:01

These were the ones I spotted...

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/29/2014 08:44

I can see the thumbnail on this page but not on the front page. Happened after I tried to change to preview file, it's a problem on PJ's end.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/29/2014 01:45

Great! nice colors

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/29/2014 00:12

Thumbnail preview seems to be broken right now.

The colors are very well balanced.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/28/2014 23:45

I've been going back in and zapping strays, let me know if you find more (I see 5 on the main sprite, I'll fix those tomorrow).

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 1/28/2014 23:43

Amazing as always. Though I've found some single pixels...

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/28/2014 23:13

I'm getting EXPLORERS flashbacks here:

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/28/2014 22:31

Glad you're still game -- it does profit from your interest beyond games.

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/28/2014 18:25

I was just thinking about how you haven't posted in awhile. Couple of seconds later I see this lol

Great stuff

vrine (Level 8 Megalodon) @ 1/28/2014 18:21

The shading on this is amazing, especially on the space crabs!

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/28/2014 18:21

This looks awesome. I have always been a fan of your color choices..

So do you know what he is saying?

Mutley (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/28/2014 18:20

I like the details in the metal...

But the text...Can translate xDDDD?
