Sistine Chapel painting by Phlum Sistine Chapel painting by Phlum
One of Michelangelo's paintings from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and indeed the one that's most recognised. Adam gets to be pink in this. :giggle:

This was quite a fun piece to do. I was quite proud when I pulled off the clouds - aided by this great tutorial. I'm also very happy with God's scarf/toga/whatever, as well as the dithering on the hill in the background. :nod:

This piece was made for the contest over on #Emoti-Art, where you have to recreate a famous painting using emotes. :giggle: A very clever idea and a great way to assert that emotes are art! :dummy:

Great job.
Is that a new shading style, or do I just need my eyes checked (again)? :giggle:

You need your eyes checked. :giggle: Perhaps it's because I've used colours here that I don't use normally?

I agree with =litecrush about a bigger canvas. And there's some neat pixelling of clouds there!

Just don't remove this if you make a new one. Oh, or you could consider trying a new painting?

This is nice. :la: I wish you'd expand the canvas more to make it even more recognizable but still really good work. :dummy: Good luck. :love:

:whisper: Look for L.S. Lowry. He did some paintings that could work really well in an emote piece.
