this is awesome, great rendering of the light hitting him, and the subtle blood soaked appendages is chillingly effective, great work

  thanks for the comments and positive feedback guys :D 
 

Jimi was an awesome ecclectic and eccentric individual for sure <3

 

@damicon yeah might get around to adjusting that, I settled on a dark band because I recall the other choices seemed to clash with surrounding colours.

quite menacing, amongst the best 1bit stuff I've seen, I think his shoulder to bicep transition looks quite awkward, the rear hand lacks volume and the before mentioned foot perspective issue and flatness.there is also some funky stuff going on with the pants his left leg in particular, I think mostly just the lighting, but that's not major enough to worry much about, good work.

half res 5 colours same amount of detail : i.imgur.com/Ymi2i.png

 

~also his neck on the left (his right) is protruding an unnatural ammount too, whole piece has a halloween* vibe to it (*the distrurbing carpenter slasher flick/s)

thanks guys, I rather like how it turned out too 

 

@adcrusher524 yeah I see it too now you mention it, I think it's because the impression of that kinda helmet/headgear is  implied  in the hoods shading ^ ^

hehe nice work, the highlights of the cubes lining up with his brow ridges and chin kinda make him look like a klingon too  nice choices on the cubes. 

haha I like how google adsense on this page is packed with rubik's cube ads

@Joe/Wrath Designs: thanks, and yeah been doing quite alot of exploration lately, I noticed you have quite alot of rather amazing multi-res work in your gallery, I think you might be interested in a form of restricted multi-res I started experimenting with lately, it's basically 2 sets of 1x pixels at 2x resolution offset by an equal amount here is an example of it in action: i.imgur.com/5YOhK.gif 

 

@|||| thanks =)



user
Grimm_Dingo @ 7/29/2012 09:42 commented on kissed by the sun

 huh, oh not really influenced by anyone consciously, just checked out his gallery nice stuff in there, some really abstract stuff too 

and I know utilizing alot of pixel friendly geometric shapes and clustering to push a more abstract style is nothing new but just been exploring alot of that lately ^ ^ thanks for the comment :)

 this is awesome,  btw did you use a 3D model as reference for that boat? nevermind read your comments, the lighting looks very effective at conveying the 3 Dimensionality of the boat

Grimm_Dingo @ 7/14/2012 16:05 commented on Ring Around The Rosie

 I dunno why I spent over an hour doing this, but I did.

i.imgur.com/tp5dn.png

your's is really difficult to read, so I decided to pixel it from scratch from the reference image to see how I'd approach it.

1)  make sure the canvas is big enough to render out the details, and try to ensure they read at 1x

2) choose an appropriate palette with decent contrast 

3)don't be afraid to deviate from the source image to reinforce the clarity of the overall image

hopefully you find this useful in some way, making it worthwhile having done it

Grimm_Dingo @ 6/24/2012 12:29 commented on Capsule Bot army

I went on autopilot and made the hat at a slant, looked pretty good but soon after finishing realized I had inadvertently gone over the colour line, so had to patch it up and centre it, got kinda lazy too, might fix it at some point



user
Grimm_Dingo @ 6/23/2012 07:58 commented on Capsule Bot army

@Surt haha I was actually playing with the idea of isolating it in the preview and calling it portrait of a robotic p..... and then add pill bot or such in the description =D i was also thinking of calling it Army of Ptoing because I feel he's become kinda synonymous with cap/pill bots due to his pixelation avatar ^ ^; 

 

@Mngwa okay well that's enough of a consensus for me to fix it up a tad and swap it out =) unless I get alot of hate comments I'll enter this busy bot version =D
