Not a great deal of creativity in this piece (this will be my next project)
but I`m pleased with how it has come out all the same. I tried to give it
a bit more of a hand-painted feel though as apposed to making a straight

All drawn using just a single pixel brush in 16 colours in Pro-Motion.

Here's a link to the WIP animated GIF;

And here's a picture of my reference (although I didn't draw from this
actual .jpg. I drew it from the inlay of the album);

thoughtmachine (Level 1 Jukyu) at 1/23/2015 4:18:00 AM

Seriously, that does not look likle pixrel art!

ghostfingers (Level 1 Depressed) at 1/20/2015 6:35:00 AM

Wow... I wasn't even sure this was pixel art from the preview. I never thought you could make pixels look painted.

volter9 (Level 1 Thug) at 9/26/2014 8:44:00 PM

So realistic!!! Is that 16 colors?! Wow! 

ayuuznurinda (Level 1 Rookie) at 8/16/2014 9:15:00 PM

She has sexy lips

jjustra (Level 1 Rookie) at 6/22/2014 11:33:00 PM

Wow ..  this is one of the best things I have seen so far.

Love that little heart in her left eye x)

lebutler (Level 1 Rookie) at 5/29/2014 6:14:00 PM

This is amazing.  Loved the link you shared to show the step by step of how this image was drawn.  You are ULTRA talented!

BlazingBlyde (Level 3 Hatchet Man) at 2/23/2013 4:13:00 PM

Amazing what one can achieve with 16 colors. This is masterful!

Gamamoto (Level 1 Depressed) at 7/21/2012 11:31:00 AM

Stunning work really realistic !

cirras (Level 1 Rookie) at 6/15/2012 11:15:00 PM

 Fantastic. The dithering makes everything so smooth. Doesn't even look pixeled.

Yielmo (Level 4 Lieutenant) at 4/26/2012 4:35:00 AM

 Holy moley....

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 2/27/2012 4:23:00 PM

 I think this is amazing! Great work making it so smooth and realistic with only 16 colours <3

AirStyle (Level 5 Assistant Manager) at 2/13/2012 12:36:00 AM

 It all depends on what your style is. Some people enjoy that of photorealism, such as I. Others may PA strictly for style, or a stylized approach, as do I as well. I enjoy this piece because I enjoy realism. I also enjoy some of the more stylized pieces, such as that of Jinn and his pieces.

Super17 (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 1/24/2012 7:43:00 AM

What's the point of pixeling photorealistical from a photo? Using a reference for another aim is ok I think, but this is just a copy. No doubt that the artist has very good skills and this is masterfully done for sure, but I will never understand why people adore something like this.

Brutown (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/20/2012 2:03:00 PM

 16 Collors ? Realissstttiicccc !! 

PixelGremlin (Level 1 Rookie) at 9/7/2011 12:11:00 PM

I would have said you used indexed colour on PS, but this is better. The fact it's done by hand makes it even more remarkable. Absolutely stunning, one of the best pieces I've ever seen.

Gugaknie (Level 5 Soldier) at 8/1/2011 8:08:00 AM

 so realistc.

xxmantisxx (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 7/13/2011 12:43:00 PM

This is the best pixel art in the world.

Life Dairy (Level 4 Deputy) at 6/12/2011 7:22:00 PM

excuse my french but HOLY SHIT


Smilecythe (Level 5 Rokkyu) at 6/7/2011 11:22:00 PM

16 COLOURS WHAT!? Good god!

Dero (Level 1 Rookie) at 5/27/2011 10:05:00 PM

Absolutely Stunning

amberfyre (Level 1 Depressed) at 4/4/2011 11:31:00 PM

this is beautiful.  I love how it came out.  good job!

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) at 1/30/2011 11:25:00 AM

 You ever see a piece that is ridiculously awesome that placed 3rd or 4th for the month and you can't possibly imagine how great the things were that beat it? This is one of those moments :] Great job

RaulOliveira22 (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/30/2011 10:07:00 AM

very, very, very good!

Sol Seraph (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/11/2011 9:30:00 AM

It's art like this that makes me want to learn how to draw in pixels. The sheer realism is amazing, and it's even more impressive knowing it's all done in tiny dots!

It rocks. Keep up the good work!

sqito (Level 1 Rookie) at 12/5/2010 8:43:00 AM

Awesome !!!

mriorgute (Level 1 Depressed) at 9/13/2010 5:03:00 PM

 please, only post pixel ar-- what? fucking amazing! 

MMM103 (Level 1 Thug) at 9/4/2010 4:25:00 PM

That has to be a photo.

That HAS to be a photo!


TKNy (Level 1 Depressed) at 9/2/2010 10:19:00 AM

amazing job! I really thought it was more colors :)

Kiwi (Level 4 Shichikyu) at 9/2/2010 10:19:00 AM

 I am speechless, I love this

tetra (Level 1 Jukyu) at 7/31/2010 7:19:00 PM

amazing that is the word to describe this

Werety (Level 1 Jukyu) at 7/27/2010 7:59:00 AM

Are u a wizard?

avo (Level 7 Mass Murderer) at 7/13/2010 11:09:00 AM

nice portrait 

adscomics (Level 3 Stalker) at 7/7/2010 6:09:00 PM

 i have a feeling that that's NOT an actual pixel art. but i could be wrong

Mykole (Level 1 Rookie) at 6/16/2010 12:09:00 PM

That is like photo.

Incredibly  ;)

Mjsime (Level 1 Rookie) at 12/29/2009 10:36:00 AM

zoom in if you dont believe it!



Boonzeet (Level 1 Thug) at 12/23/2009 11:33:00 PM

 Incredibly photorealistic. Well done!

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) at 12/17/2009 3:13:00 PM

The WIP animation says otherwise.  

JJoploo (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 10/18/2009 6:55:00 PM

 Shut up, there's no why this is a pixel art. You must have reduced the colors on a picture of something. O.O

Moskau (Level 2 Quiet One) at 9/21/2009 8:36:00 AM

This is one of the most amazing artworks I have ever seen.

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) at 8/19/2009 2:35:00 PM

Flawless! That's all I have to say.

Vectomon (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 8/2/2009 8:16:00 AM

At first i was like

"WTF  where are the admins this is clearly NOT pixel art."

but then i zoomed in and my respect for you went  <9000.

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) at 6/30/2009 11:01:00 PM

How much time did it take you to do this?

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 5/21/2009 4:36:00 PM

I'm  am almost crying, seriously, this is gorgeous.

Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) at 5/20/2009 5:20:00 PM

Woah, that looked like a photograph at first! D: 5/5, for sure!

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) at 5/6/2009 3:36:00 PM

Another comment has been made (jedzed) about anti-aliassed work looking 'photoshopped', which made me think...
When I started 'pixelling' in the late '80s, systems such as the Amiga and their rich pallette became a boon for artists, allowing 'antialiasing' to give the effect of straighter edges, and other effects. We used it constantly; and for this early period many of us didn't look back, less try to emulate the 'raw' limits of older 8-bit systems' graphics restrictions.
It's interesting as time has moved on we see more-and-more pixelled styles revert to the non-antialiased (aliased?) styles that artists had no choice but to use, but now use in anger - Metal Slug being the obvious example.
Do we think anti-aliassed work today, a technique that could once only be produced meticulously and skillfully by hand, has a lesser credibility now that such a technique (cheat?) is the bread-and-butter of modern art tools - even tools that are meant purely for pixel art?
Just a thought :P

timmy999999999 (Level 1 Rookie) at 5/5/2009 11:50:00 AM


this is amazing!


keep goïng

are u pixeling before u come here?

Kurozaki (Level 1 Rookie) at 2/20/2009 8:54:00 AM you sir are blind its not photo shoped

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) at 2/5/2009 8:39:00 AM
just looks like a photoshopped picture to me, i could do it easy without the fuss of hand pixelling it, if you did really do that. since i think itd be easy to make a backwards wip from that lol

Oren_shtiv (Level 3 Private Eye) at 12/13/2008 5:12:00 AM
wow,this one looks so reall!

matthewcosta (Level 5 Captain) at 11/3/2008 6:37:00 AM
looks realistic

photo_lolly (Level 1 Depressed) at 8/22/2008 4:18:00 PM
How much did it take you to do that???

Anemone (Level 1 Rookie) at 8/18/2008 12:49:00 PM
Amaizing! Her face looks very beautiful, just like in the real picture in her album

kickapoo (Level 1 Rookie) at 7/13/2008 10:19:00 PM

holy sh*t,holy sh*t!!! added to fav's! god damn it! this is a supernatural pixel!!!! keep going!!!!

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) at 6/23/2008 10:46:00 AM
That's astounding. I didn't believe it was pixel art until I zoomed in. Wow.

Expand (Level 3 Stalker) at 5/26/2008 11:25:00 AM
Holy crap, I thought it was a photograph.  Amazing job.

Majoris (Level 1 Jukyu) at 5/8/2008 7:19:00 PM
So smooth, this is amazing, you win 100%

FlyGuy (Level 10 Capo) at 3/19/2008 9:56:00 AM
I honestly don't understand why this is not the number one piece on Pixel Joint. You have easily fooled the eye into believing this is a black and white photo of a beautiful woman. I even had some buddies of mine look at this, they were all fooled. Th detail in the hair is jaw dropping, you really have major talent....I hope it's being used some where else as well, (where more people can see).

And you know, the funny thing is...You actually made her prettier than she really is! Fav 7/7.

SillyJonna (Level 2 Kukyu) at 2/11/2008 1:41:00 AM
Goodness! The skin is so smooth and lovely, as well as the hair! An amazing piece.

balls01 (Level 5 Killer Klown) at 1/28/2008 5:30:00 PM
wheres the pixel art i only see that photo

RandomPixel (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/27/2008 2:35:00 PM
It looks so darn realistic.. just... wow!

crisisstar (Level 1 Gangster) at 1/2/2008 3:14:00 PM
Wow this is really realistic!

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) at 11/17/2007 3:03:00 PM
Holy crap! this is so realistic even though its 16 colors 6/6 + fav

Stan20 (Level 2 Flatfoot) at 7/15/2007 2:46:00 PM
Look like photo! ;p

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) at 5/24/2007 1:16:00 PM

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 5/19/2007 9:05:00 AM
Thats veeery realistic!! And that with just 16 colors! amazing!

rockybolan (Level 1 Thug) at 4/7/2007 6:46:00 PM

Barky (Level 1 Rookie) at 3/29/2007 8:35:00 PM

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 2/25/2007 1:32:00 AM

hmm looking back at that post i made, it looks stupid :o

anyway still fantastic stuff

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) at 2/21/2007 4:45:00 AM
Pro-motion is the best for this type of pixel art.

griego (Level 1 Depressed) at 2/16/2007 10:07:00 PM

please teach me the basics of pixle art, like is there a special program to use

Zhou (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/19/2007 9:56:00 AM

Insane anti-aliasing and color choice.

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/3/2007 7:20:00 AM

Thanks again guys.

It's been a while since I last checked my folio and I`m amazed at all the nice comments that have been left.

chrstman (Level 1 Rookie) at 12/25/2006 2:33:00 PM
Very good job. 

vanSchmidt (Level 1 Intern) at 12/25/2006 12:15:00 AM

To tell you the truth, this doesn't even seem possible.. I mean, how can someone make something THAT good? It should have been   #1 in the top pixel art. I love it, its incredi.  

Merry Christmas

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) at 12/24/2006 10:48:00 PM
dude... your dithering makes it look SO FREAKIN REAL!

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 12/18/2006 11:12:00 PM

How the hell do you do this?!?!?!?!?

Sorry but it's almost impossible for this to be 100% paint it's do REALISTIC  how do you do this on paint do you millest the program?!?!?!?!?!?

Ok sorry for the rudeness but this is just pure godlyness

i still don't know how you do this but you sir are insane with a magical power!!!


=^D Guy (Level 3 Enforcer) at 11/8/2006 6:23:00 PM
Now that's what I call damn awesome pixel artwork. I love how you did the dithering and more b/w like pallete.

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) at 10/30/2006 8:37:00 AM
What to say? Amazingly pretty. Jaw-dropping stuff.

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) at 10/17/2006 3:15:00 PM
wow, incredable.  an excelent portrait.  i found myself wondering if that was actually a pixel

Atooi (Level 5 Soldier) at 9/15/2006 12:14:00 PM
That's pretty incredible!! Excellent work.

Darkshon (Level 1 White Belt) at 9/11/2006 3:31:00 PM

im impressed ;o

David Stoner (Level 1 Rookie) at 8/26/2006 12:36:00 AM
Hmmm, I have mixed feelings on this. Your technique is of course very impressive, but it is just a copy. I guess I'll wait for your next project to see what else you can do.

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) at 8/25/2006 1:26:00 AM
So many nice comments! I don't know what to say (which is a first!). Thanks everyone!
