Newt was a third-generation Alabamian and an umpteenth-generation farmer. He lost the use of his right eye after a swift kick from a mule. He wore denim overalls over a white t-shit and a wide-brimmed hat, every day but Sundays.

And that's all I know about my great-grandfather.

You SURE we're not family?

Soo well done here, cure! I'm glad to see you posting again!

This is so well-done, and I love the motive for it too.

And that is how the cure was born.

Sent me back to 25 years ago. Animate this, please.

Finally (I've been waiting), someone finally brought up Rockwell.

TerraIncognita (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/15/2014 15:14

Wow, this is perfect. What a great tribute.

Storm (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/15/2014 09:28

7Soul (Level 6 Garbage) @ 7/15/2014 01:36

I can't not see Christopher Loyd there

Zetman (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/15/2014 01:18

Are you the Norman Rockwell of Pixel Art? Amazing. 

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/14/2014 13:20

Yes, it is

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/14/2014 11:01

Nice  update on the forehead, though the big field of brown gave me some kind of nostalgic cure-ness. Glasses read as slightly busy, but hardly so

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 7/14/2014 09:59

One of the most impressive pixel portraits I've ever seen. I don't like the backround that much though.

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/14/2014 08:39

Lovely work!

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 7/14/2014 04:47

Great reference to study pixel portraits. 

albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/14/2014 03:12

I like the sense of volume in this piece!

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/14/2014 00:46

No, this CAN'T be pixel art! ....but it is....! I love how smooth this is! It's like a photograph!

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/13/2014 19:59

I agree. Maybe the updated version is better?

Terff (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/13/2014 10:01

Very nice, love the shading!  Great details!

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/13/2014 09:25

Never has a geat-grandfather made me drool so much

I especially like how the face details draw you in and those bold highlights on the glasses. Not much of a fan for the uppermost part of the forehead.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/13/2014 04:38

And what more do you need to know when that description says so much between the lines.
