Ad astra (PIXELART) by jokov Ad astra (PIXELART) by jokov
Pixelart portrait inspired by princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from star wars (episode IV)
But as you see it was only loose inspiration – model was different.
320x256 size
32 colors

Handpixelled in Grafx2 with a mouse. No conversion, tools etc. I took about 20-30hours 
I used several refs. on different stages of work, but nothing particular. 
Maybe I will show more refined version later (background)

Picture was done for Amiga 500 computer.  
Took third place in dedicated (oldschool gfx) demoscene competition for that platform in Goteborg (Sweden) this year.

WOW. I don't even know where to begin. When i first saw this piece, i thought it was seriously impressive and I hadn't even noticed it was made from pixels. The fact that it is made of pixels is absolutely mind blowing. This is so well thought out and executed in every aspect. Congratulations on the DD! You definitely deserve it.

Well - background lacks of details and AA, but it's mainly portrait so it doesn't hurt so much I think.
Thanks for kind words :)

Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra
Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra
Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra
Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra

Across the galaxy a new force of evil is rising
Wizards of Chaos fight to dethrone the brave king of Dundee
Entwined by mystic spells, they know where the sorcerer hidden
Imprisoned in ice on the planet of Knights, the powerful heroes of Crail

Aeons of warfare returning
No longer peace will survive
The intergalactic great Empire of Fife will die

For the king we will ride
Through the dark galactic skies
To defeat the foes
When the Chaos Wizards rise
Now the universe will burn
Evil sorcerer returns
Tragic fate rages tonight
Chaos Wizard rise

Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra
Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra

Ten centuries ago brave heroes defeated the wizard
Now Chaos reigns and evil returns to the kingdom of Fife
Wizard cultists rage - on dark wings of steel they are flying
To space they must go, great terror they sow, nothing can stand in their way

The Space Knights of Crail are defeated
The fortress of Triton is lost
Zargothrax rises once more from his prison of frost

For the king we will ride
Through the dark galactic skies
To defeat the foes
When the Chaos Wizards rise
Now the universe will burn
Evil sorcerer returns
Tragic fate rages tonight
Chaos Wizard rise

spoken:
And lo, after centuries of frozen slumber I am free once more
Cosmic infinity courses through my veins
My body is ablaze with astral terror
The galaxy shall once again tremble before the might of Zargothrax

Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra
Sanctus dominus
Infernus ad astra

For the king we will ride
Through the dark galactic skies
To defeat the foes
When the Chaos Wizards rise
Now the universe will burn
Evil sorcerer returns
Tragic fate rages tonight
Chaos Wizards rise

Rise!

You're welcome. :) I've tried drawing with a mouse and it was very difficult for me. You've mastered the use of a mouse very well. I still can't get over the fluid shapes and the details you made.

This is stunning! I'm a huge Star Wars fan so this is magic for me. I literally thought this was an oil painting until I saw (pixel art)! The aesthetic is just so brilliant here.

Really means a lot
I love to paint with oils so its double compliment.
I often try to mimic this effect in pixels.
