Forest Lord by skittlefuck Forest Lord by skittlefuck
For the PJ weekly. There's a lot of messy stuff going on, and I'm not especially happy with the tree canopy -but the time limit for the challenge is almost over. Was a really good learning experience.


Thanks for viewing : )

edit: got so tired before posting that I was repeating myself in the description x_x

This is one of my favorite pixels pieces period let alone my favorite piece of yours. it's absolutely stunning. The colors are unreal, and everything just looks so big and majestic. It's amazing.

God, that palette lol can't get over it. Simply gorgeous <3

fuckin'

yeah

This is really damn good, really damn good
the trees are good, the grass is good, the thing in the whatever is good, the lighting is good, the background is good, the colors are good, the composition is good, damn

daaaaaaaaaaaamn

(btw the only problem I could POSSIBLY think of in the tree canopy is that the leaves are very paper cut-out-ish in that they lack any dithering, unlike the rest of the piece, but who fucking cares this is damn good)

eyyy, nice hear you're still around

Yes, that's exactly the problem I was facing with the canopy of leaves! I did try dithering early on, but I dunno, I didn't feel like it was working (in the end, since I'm still not happy with the leaves maybe I should've just gone ahead and dithered the whole thing). Since leaves are so 'noisy' when viewed from faraway it makes for an awkward thing to draw, especially when they're being viewed from bottom-up. It was a bit dumb of me to make the leaves so pixel-clustery : ( 

I'm happy someone else besides me noticed this though!

Hope you're doing good man o/

I'm doin' just great. It's been a slow few months for drawing, but I've been great. 

Pixel-clustery? Pixel-schmustery. I think one of the main reasons it looks off is how similar they all look. In the middle they're all basically 2x2 squares, which gives it a cartoony look that's slightly at odds with the rest of the thing. I probably don't know enough about pixels to know what's pixel-clustery about them. All I know is, who cares! I'd say this is by far your best work yet. Why nitpick? (I said, nitpicking)

Also great to see you've gotten over your art block. Hope all's well in your neck of the woods (I'll show myself out)
Cheers!

This is one of the best pixel art pieces I've seen in a while. Honest-to-goodness excellence in practice! Simply awesome and a credit to both your competency with pixels and your competency with art.

This is beautiful my friend! I think the canopy & messiness you're talking about is either largely lost on it or looks natural due to the messy forms of nature. Seriously beautiful work! <3

Perhaps so, I dunno -I think I've stared at it too long so the canopy will forever be ingrained in my mind hahaha. Thankyou very much man!

Ohh, you saw Mushishi too? It's so amazing, just finished season 3.

And yes! That's why I called it Forest Lord, since in Mushishi they called them Lord of the Mountains ;D
