If you make simple shaded stuff (or c64 type resticive art) you have an incentive to keep the definition the same.

"Each pixel by hand" is a slogan which that that piece attacked. Apparently thats how you sell things to the masses - use slogans. I just need a better slogan to persuade the people at Pixel joint. It must be simple. It must make them feel smart repeating it. "As long as it would work on an Amiga"?

Anywya, been screwing around with it.



Maybe I should take a shot at the beutiful but not distracting scenery ...
as in many, many fields of human creativity and action, sometimes rules are much needed guides, sometimes they are excuses not to create or act at all, the means for lazyness not to make you grow.
anyway it's in their nature to be discussed, luckyly

the screenshot is cool!
i find it too colourful, but i don't know if my opinion is biased by taste, about the lack of overall unifying tone in the screen.
so i say it is cool that notwithstanding.

instead, about the "beautiful but not distracting" i would say that this is very much better background than the previous purple one: the only thing you could tweak if you liked it, is first level of parallax (ok the term is used inproperly, but you get what i mean, right?)

i think you used 3 tones of grey for that, and i think just two, with a nice patterning of pixels, with the darker one thrown away, would be perfect.

And I agree with sharpmm, voice should be spoken.

Rules are cool, as are limitations, but some of them are really, really stupid.

Not 320*240 but I'll finish eventually. Just thought I'd post now since I'm uploading it to pixel joint in the hope I can get them to relax the place each pixel by hand rule.

Akira - you might be interested: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/39808.htm

marco - thanks for that comment about 3 shades, eventually I ended up looking at Roger Dean's art and I can see that in his work alot - interesting shadow designs with not as much emphasis on 3d shape.

Anyone reckon SOTB2 was based on this Roger Dean pic?
