Pixel art - A glimpse of freedom


Badge Awards

Well, It was a lot of work. I spent about 100h on this pixel art landscape. Partially because while it is Amiga 500 lowres mode picture it utilizes some tricks to show more colors than it is possible for this computer in a standard case.  And with tricks come restrictions and difficulties. But even without all technical bullshit ;) it was one of my biggest projects so far.

I tried to use a different than usual approach to colors, composition, shading, clusters, and perspective.
I also tried to draw an even more complex version with much more details, better composition, and fixed issues in many areas, but it is still unfinished and I have no idea if it ever will be complete.

So there it is - my new pixel art landscape.
Hope you like it!
till next one.

You're welcome. They have stolen a ton of work from other DeviantArt Artist and I was going through and trying to notify as many as I could.

is the background a digital drawing or its printed all over your wall?

jokov's avatar

The background is just one of DA templates I was playing recently after I got CORE.

It would look nice (my picture) as an print thou I think, so I will add an print option probably

Only lo-res, no HAM?

jokov's avatar

No, It's standard lo-res with some heavy copper (and not only) magic.

It will be released as executable file for amiga (stock amiga 500 will do) later.

Also - in HAM it's impossible to create pixel art as there is virtually no control over single pixel color and no control over palette. ;)

Tinselfire's avatar

I trust you if you say it is impossible - I prefer to phrase it as requiring high tolerance for surprises.

jokov's avatar

Well, pixel art by definition is in 8 bit range. That's why we have indexed palette mode (256 colors maximum). HAM is true color mode - with 4096 colors.

In theory we could use HAM8 mode for amiga 1200 (AGA chipset) in super hires mode - 1280x256 and use it as 320x256 resolution with super wide pixel.

It would create 1x1 , 24 bit picture without color deformation (in HAM mode every color change affects next 4 pixels) but it still not allow us to use indexed palette mode :)

Tinselfire's avatar

Ah, yes, that makes sense. I don't know the math by heart myself, just know the basic concepts of drift in HAM.

jokov's avatar

Also - on AGA chipset there is 320x250 8 bit mode with indexed palette :D
