Journey to the End by alexandrabirchmore Journey to the End by alexandrabirchmore
ITS CHRISTMAS EVE D: D: D: I guess I should probably be uploading something festive. But, hey! It's got snow in it you know :evileye:

This was something done in MS paint a while back now, I just never got around to uploading it. The sheer crappiness of MS Paint makes drawing in it fun ;P
I'm not sure what the story is here...(drawing pictures is hard enough, you expect me to know what they mean too?!)

Edit: A DD!!! :noes: Thank you guys!! :glomp:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-02-20
Journey to the End by *alexandrabirchmore - I have always had an appreciation for this piece, as it heavily resembles a painting. There are various depths of brush strokes, hues and tones. It's overall quite stunning, even if not antialiased, dithered, or refined. Initially submitted a bit over a year ago, I feel its past due for its time to shine, especially seeing as how the artist is still very active! ( Featured by Mistress-Jaeden )

:wow: This is amazing for just a pixel work! It seriously had me fooled for a minute there into thinking it was a painting, then I casually rolled my mouse over it and I was like "O__O Pixel art!?"

This just seriously freaking rocks. The lighting on everything from the mountain snow to the unicorn's horn is beautifully done. And the horses' anatomy, the shadows, and the background are all perfect. This just might be my favorite pixel art ever. :heart:

This is awesome! I love the roughness of it, and the way you've conveyed a real sense of motion.

Pictures don't need meaning ;) I hate it when people try to force meaning onto a piece of art, whether it's prose, music, painting, or whatever, when the artist obviously never intended it to have any sort of meaning.

Holy cr*p! I can't believe this didn't get it's (obviously deserved) DD status earlier! This is one of those pieces that kicks the door down hard enough to embed it into the floor, then steps in, puffs out it's chest and says

"DAMN! I'm AWESOME!"
