Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by Mistress-Jaeden Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by Mistress-Jaeden
Dimensions are - 322x518
Colors used are - 14
Time elapsed - Took me like 3-4 weeks, I worked on it non stop at first,, then we went on vacation for a week, then shaun got me into warcraft *hangs head*
Hours spent - probably around 20, maybe more... not sure
Program - Microsoft Paint, Rotate and color correction done in Paint Shop Pro

Why did you make this? - In 2001 I was doodling an image on some construction paper and made - [link] After reading the comments, praising the originality of its concept, I decided I wanted to color it.. What a better medium then pixel?

Yes, I changed a fair ammount of it, and mirrored a part of it, but I think it is one of the most beautiful pieces Ive done, and Im quite proud of it.
Anyone who bitches about the anatomy needs to grasp the concept on imagination *nods head proudly*


Thank you for the daily Deviation ^_^ And everyone for there wonderful comments, I have another thing in my head, Im probably going to make it my next banner.. cant explain it but I promise it will be another "learning session"

Id also like to add that this was another learning expierement for me; Depth. A few people mentioned that it was well portrayed. Im quite happy that my first play on abstract depth went so well.

It was also my first monotone pixel piece. The pallet originates from a layout sky scene a friend is working on, with a few edits. Thanks hun!

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-07-02
I knew my tears had a little something extra in them last time I shed them! Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by ~Mistress-Jaeden is an impressive, imaginative close-up of our favorite (or not so-favorite!) salty-discharge in a web-esque style. Peep it well!

Looks better than some of the next generation graphics...if only they could do this much with so little. 14 colors indeed.

That IS an amazing piece. *_* I love it, and agree with the Insta-fave comments. Also, WoW is a brain-eating, time-sucking menace. And I am not even close to breaking the addiction. I've been playing since Dec. 3, 2004. @.o Maybe someday. At least I work on my sketching now. Oi.

Absolutely stunning. Once again a piece from you leaves me unable to form a coherant compliment. There's just nothing about this that -doesn't- leave me actually breathless -- you just captured the concept -so- amazingly well in pixel.

(This was shown to me after I made a comment about something someone drew on NutrinoPets in Paint. It was really crappy. Anyway, the link was sent to me by ~KiwiRose. SO yeah. Incredible. I'm inspired...I seriously doubt I'd have the patience for something like this... )
