"Is shadowless life the same as a lifeless shadow? Is it death or just another mystery in front of our eyes?"

This was quite a long journey for me to go. However I had a lot of friendly critique combined with the right tips to make this even better than I ever could imagine.
I used 8 colours for this piece (no transparency).

The last thing I want to say and something I really learned while pixeling this is that you should never give up! Only because you think you got worse at art or are bad at it is no reason to quit. Since quitting is actually the real moment where you get worse or are too bad. There will be nothing if you give nothing!

I am glad you like it, ZudZement!

Thanks for taking your time to write a comment :)

Sorry for my late reply, Finlal!

Yes, I improved quite a lot while pixeling it.

My first idea was without shadows since ghost usually do not cast shadows. Some may tho - too many different interpretations. However when I started to work on the shadows I felt like they harm the piece overall or rather the pavement. That is why I returned to no shadows - as it was supposed to be :)

I hope I could answer your question! Thanks for your comment!

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/25/2015 12:13

Haha, Sengi :D You actually stalked it as well as the user "Dont"?!

I am glad you like it and thank you!

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/25/2015 12:12

Dont, sorry for my late reply!

Haha, so you stalked it? I hope it went out as good as you imagined it :)

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/25/2015 12:10

Sorry for my late reply, jalonso!

Yes, it was a big experience for me to encounter and also a lot of fun :)

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/25/2015 12:09

Mandrill, sorry for my late reply. I totally forgot about the comments here :(

Nonetheless I am glad you like it and I will try to become less sketchy in the future!

Wicked little beasts!

Creepy! The atmosphere is pretty great. The faces of the characters are quite scary. The flashing light is nice. Good stuff. Cheers!

Congrats on finishing it!
You really improved while doing that piece.

Only one thing. You said in WIP thread that you'll add shadows in the last update.
UPD. And now I noticed it's name.

Sengi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/1/2014 02:37

So you finished it, grats! I was tracking this one form the begining, well done 

Dont (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/1/2014 00:55

I've stalked the whole proccess of this one, a great experience for you + ended with a really good pixel-art. 

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/31/2014 18:13

You worked really hard and tried your best and I'm glad to know it was fun and a learning experience

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 10/31/2014 14:49

The lighting is incredibly well done, bravo. Though, some of the lines and clusters look a bit sketchy.

Great piece nonetheless.
