@DawnBringer: just keep on pickin' the nits, I'm glad you do! I'll have a look at it (and the whole palette actually) with a better display once I get that other computer up and running. I'm currently on a very old thinkpad x23 and the display is really really poor so I have absolutely no doubt that the palette might be / is more or less off. Thanks for a reminder!

Another nice one! I especially like that transparent feel to the wings. Also the landing spot is quite cool ;)

..many hidden animals? Well, let's just be honest and say dithering is boring ;) Love this piece and definitely would've voted for it!

I guess I'm just too used to the ascii.. but who knows, maybe some day I'll switch to a graphical interface and a screen like this wouldn't look bad at all. I hope something like this would get finished sooner or later!

I like this one. IMO, the knob/button thing is fine since you're the manufacturer afterall! There's one thing that bothers me though. Is there a switch for the playing direction somewhere, or should one just hack a switch for it? Just want to make sure before buying one of these, cause currently the record is playing backwards :P

@EdJr: Thanks for the compliment. At the moment my spare time is very limited so I'm more comfortable practicing with smaller pics. The problem with a bigger pic is that the interruptions are something between frequent to constant and it's really hard to keep a focus on such a "project". ..kids, you know.. :) Also the fact that the pics are still taking quite alot of time to do is something to keep in mind.  I was actually positively surprised I was able to do this in a day!

@KrypToniTe: Haven't seen the trailer yet, have to check it out!

@Jeremy: ..Ummm, you caught me! I was browsing iLKke's gallery the night before and this is what came out the next day. It wasn't on purpose, I just realised it at some point while working. Kind of bothers me though.. :/

@Dennis: Yeah, that's what I've been thinking about. It hasn't been an issue so far since I haven't really drawn that much with a computer, but a new hobby always comes with new investments, right? Anyways, glad you liked the drawing!

Thanks for all the comments!

You're all right about the preview. Looking at it now, it really does promise more than there is to the actual pic. It was actually a concious decision to draw the face close to no expression, but I picked the grumpiest part for the preview. I've been drawing too many angry faces (it's too easy I guess..) and was afraid that this one would end up beeing just one in the line..

About the 8th color.. For some reason, I was beeing really picky with the darkest/lightest colors as they are in the pic now and it's true I could've added more contrast to it even without adding a color. So basically I felt that the 7 was enough. I will be adding an extra color to the pic I'm working on based on this face (it will need it for sure!), but currently I just really want to try out something different. It still is a picture I really want to do, so it will get done, sooner or later ;)

@Delicious: Funny how those "last minute shortcuts just to get it done" somehow always end up catching someone's interest :)

That's enough talk, now back to the drawing board!

sm4tik @ 11/30/2010 01:11 commented on Dead tree

I like the idea and the tree itself, but maybe if the pic was half the size, it would look better? Also if the tree wasn't straight in the middle, it would add tension to the composition. Keep up the good work!

Many little things I love about this, make's me wan't to watch some old sci-fi movies. The palette is great and one just can't miss is that CCCP on the box and that poster on the wall which absolutely nails this one!
