Traveling the lands of Sillis by Mistress-Jaeden Traveling the lands of Sillis by Mistress-Jaeden
Its Kiera again, I had this picture in my head, and just had to shit it out, My model was Adriana Lima (shes so hot)

I used a total of 87 colors,
it is 100% pixel shaded,
mix between MSP and PSP,
Damn psp for its color replacement tool and its select tool, But hey, It made for a wicked sky.
Its dimentions are 831x348 ... wich was an accident :D I made it about 50 pixels wider then I wanted for my banner on AP :D The Mountains I made quite a while ago, I decided to recycle them because I love them so much XD yes they are a repeatable image :)

1 weeks work, Kieras head alone was 20 hours, I lost track after that, You can critique if you want but I wont be changeing any of it I gave it my all and Im 100% happy with it.

I would however, LOVE to recieve comments from you all on what your favorite parts are XD


[link] <--- those are the only saves I still had from the whole process ^_^ thought Id share for kicks

*edit* YOU MAY NOT USE OR EDIT THIS IMAGE TAKE PARTS OF OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT! I will not grant permission through notes either, I will NOT let you use this image for editing purposes. Thanks!

Behold the glory of this pixel piece! Traveling the lands of Sillis by ~Mistress-Jaeden is a real eye opener with its colors and beauty. And you wonder why pixel artists keep on doing what they do! ( Suggested by gas13 and Featured by halfliquid )

Marc-pHX Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009
OMG. That's splendid, what a brilliant work! The background is wonderful, with the sky going from yellow to blue with such a nice dithering and the mountains and their outstanding texture. And the girl, I've never seen such realistic face made of pixels before. The skins looks amazing and so is the hair. Awesome job! :+fav:

This dearest.

Is an amazing piece of art. I didn't believe it was pixel art until i re-read the category.

You are a master of your art style.

Thanks for sharing.

Everything about this pic is beyond words. The detail!! :jawdrop:

this is utterly beautiful and I can't even imagine how long this took you to create. Talented people like you make me feel worthless ;)

Damn, I really miss those old DOS and Amiga computer games with their pixel art, and even the first Windoze games... now it's 3D everywhere, I'm getting sick of it.

I'd like to see some newer computer games made in pixel art, please!

Why don't we just get a bunch of pixel artists, midi musicians, and programmers together, and make DA computer games?

way to choose adriana lima as your model, very very good choice.
dauntss Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Positively amazing use of pixel-by-pixel. Not only that, but choice of model is SUPERB (she's my favorite!!)... Really, this is just amazing. :+fav:
LatinLight Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2006
She reminds me of one of the people on an Everquest poster...
ice-box-angel Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2005
She's just too effing beautiful for words. She looks so real. Her hair is so natural, and her eyes have the same.... something, the same mix of rare colours that Angilina Jolie's do (Like, yellow-golds with aqua blues)...
Then there's the mountains, which look less Photorealistic, but being that they're in the distance, it works. Everything all looks so... in place. Where it should be. And it does that without looking like... over-constructed. (Someone shoot me, I sound like my Art Teacher... lol)
My favourite thing, however, is how you've given the whole image a golden, wholesome feel, like just before harvest-time or something. It's... wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow. She/you are too amazing for words.

Hey wow, not only was that long, but it sounded.... deep! I'm never "deep"! *proud*

Wow...thats amazing! :clap:
goldfishoevil Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2005  Student Digital Artist
I think my favorite part would have to be her hair. That's the part that has me gaping and poking at my computer screen in awe. Though her eyes and lips are right up there as well. Not to mention the mountains just -amaze- me.

I also especially love this because it reminds me of a reallyold computer game that has the main character in a wheat field backed by mountains. I love the game, and so I just love this even more because of that. ^_^
