Land of Rebirth

YES! I'm not kidding when I say I went all out on this one and pushed my pixel art skills and patience to the utmost limit! Needless to say, I had an incredibly difficult time drawing this, both due to the picture's sheer size and the semi realistic detail that I wanted to accomplish. Snowballsweet's realistic pixel art was such an inspiration to me, I had to enter her art contest and make something great.

The aim of the contest entry is to draw Snowballsweet's Faix in an environment I choose. I took the liberty of including my favourite anime character Hotaru Tomoe and Snowballsweet's cat Watermelon. As you can see, I basically recycled the girl's face from a previous pic I made of her, it's really surprising how a slight change in hairstyle made her look more grown up and mature.

This is the land of rebirth, where Hotaru is looking after everyone who passes through here and about to be reborn in the living world. The mythical Faix arrives to see her old friend Watermelon off, who will soon start to live a new and happy life.

Watermelon is Snowballsweet's cat who unfortunately passed away a while ago. I know the feeling when you have lost something truly precious, as I have lost my cat Cuddles last year. I want to commemorate Watermelon in this picture.

I had alot of help from friends on things like proportions, cloth design etc. So thank you Bonzai and Diric, you guys are awesome! :)

EDIT (01/03/2012): Diric you made this a DD, what a way to make my day! XD

This art is great, but the realism clashes a bit with the backround and colors

That's not pixel art. That can't possibly be pixel art.

Amazing. You are truly talented.

took me a while to realize it was pixel art.
Other that her right hand, everything is fantastic. You deserve the DD.

Her hand or arm? Is it the one lifted up or the other? I know someone has mentioned about the arm before.
Minkymy's avatar
The hand on the lifted arm.

Hotaru and a cat in her lap! That's pretty good right there! :) I love how intricate all of this is, the blanket and the plaid skirt design. Certainly Hotaru's style is there, the cat has very realistic cat stripes. I really like the background of trees with pink blossoms!
