Jamie has a big face by Pathetic-Krypton Jamie has a big face by Pathetic-Krypton
PHEW! I finally finished this stupid silly thing!!

A giant portrait using as many colors as possible. XD;; The final count is something like 96, plus the dA background.

You can see the WIP here --> [link]

EDIT: I fixed his mohawk so now it is not off-center. Oh god was that ever bothering me.

Beautiful! I love how smooth you were able to get his skin with pixels! And his hair looks great, as well.

Dude. That is AMAZING.
At first I thought it was just a drawing, but then I realised it was pixel art! Well, it's kinda obvious. Nothing has those tiny square color palettes unless it's PIXEL ART. XD

That's awesome stuff right there, 'specially for pixel art. And not trying to be a jerk or anything, but if you used GIMP, you could make a transparent background. :D keep up the awesome work.

Pathetic-Krypton Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I usually use Irfanview to do transparency, but I think because of the high color count I left it as a PNG instead of converting it to a GIF, so transparency was out of the question.

when you put in a transparent background the thumbnail on dA gets fucked up. It looks better all round with the background, and no one will ever know XD

I can imagine you put a lot of effort into this. Yet I'm a bit confused (and this probably applies to pixel art in general) - why do you spend ages to produce a work which could be done a lot faster and much likely even better using different techniques (like photo/photomanip or digital painting)??? :confused:

:iconpathetic-krypton:
Pathetic-Krypton Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's a matter of choice, I think. Some people like the way pixel art looks versus digital painting or photomanipulation. What I did here was for a challenge of sorts, where the goal was to pixel a portrait using as many colors as possible, and I did just that. Normally, pixel art isn't so large so it doesn't require as much effort or time as I put into this piece. Otherwise, I do agree with you--if I had expected the end result to simply be a portrait of a character, I would have likely used a different method, but because this was created specifically to use the techniques used it couldn't have been any other way. =)

Then it wouldn't be pixel art, I assume. It's like asking why someone would use coloured pencil when they could have been done quicker painting.

No. But it's not like you're colouring dot by dot using a pencil right?

xoja Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm confused, sorry. In pixel art, you're not using a massive brush as you would in 'normal' digital art, no. You're going through each pixel, specifying its colour.
