So this is it.

"living for, living with, living inside pixelart part IV" is ready

Well some may ask themselfs "why the heck is he talkin about PART IV?!?!?!"

a simple answer: it's part IV just because it is the last picture of a series - but I somehow chose to pixel it first - I just dunno why This is part of a project I do for indypendent class @ university. I hope to finish the first 3 parts soon. This series is a journey through pixelverse - everything will somehow and more or less be related to my person.

I won't explain how the other parts will look, because it will kill some surprise effects I want every viewer to have. I simply will reveal that the journey will start far away and zoom in very close to my life - which is actually what you see here.

For now I will give you a detailed description of the technical aspects of this picture

size (of the pixelart itself) : 720x907 pixels
format: png
bpp: 24 bits
objects inside picture: 158
characters in picture (including animals): 3
program used to compile: Photoshop 7
layers used: 100+
time taken: about 500 hours
---------------------------------------- ------
I would like to thank a few people for constant critique that helped to improve the work in progress picture.

Thanks to:

- Calvin

- Dash ~dashzero

- Tim

A very special thanks goes out to

- Christian ~cganderson

- Björn ~born23

- Ole ~dojoh

- my brother Marc

all I can say is that I hope you enjoy watching this picture as much as I had making it!

I also hope I will get some critique and/or comments on this picture because it took huge amounts of time, nearly exhausted me and will be part of my trimester exams.

thats it folks, hope you like it


Even if most of you liked the picture the way it was, some commented how to improve it . I did have some thoughts too and so I decided to edit some parts of the picture - I did not change any objects or deleted anything at all - I just changed shadows to fit a more realistic lighting/shadow theme. Most of it has been edited ~zoggles suggested it - another thing is that I made a translucent shadow - even for the afri cola bottle on the shelves. well I think I got everything covered, oh ... forgot one thing.... darkened the becks bottles because they got no backlight here which makes the scene more realistic - and thanks again to everybody helped to make it better - and a special thanks to ~zoggles and ~ dojoh

that's all folks!

EDIT PART II(12.10.03) made 2 minor tweaks. only 4 pixels but I think it will look better

Don't forget to have a look at Living Inside PART II

I have this pixel-art poster on sight for over 10 years, Finlay today I bought it -On the Devaintshop
I also bought the Living inside Part II (for a nice pair)

And I'll  think I want a border less frame on it for both!?

And for this one a transparant back to, Because it has a nice description of all 40 things on it, right?

Thanks for the work..
