finally submitting this one..

yes it's an homage to steve purcells ingenious monkey island (no need to post references everybody knows =)

started around xmas 2005 as entry for the pixel competition of the pirate themed tum2005 demoparty.. only submitted a very unfinished party-version there (see http://www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-wie_passend_du_kaempfst_wie_eine_kuh!_party.png), nevertheless got 1st price =P

this (pre)final version was done over the last weeks.. kinda 99% finished, i might invest a few minutes into the bone at the bottom right and into the waterfall behind guybrush

working stages (312!) can be found here: http://www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-wiepassend_stepsanim_fast.gif

thanx to ben2theedge for the hint concerning the ship floating over guybrush's head / the sword

EDIT: added a little splash on the waterfall.. the 100th fav edition =P

EDIT²: edit in the waterfall-area again: added some waves this time

reference: hell, no =D

tools: grafx2

 Coolio! This art piece is amazing :3

And I'm glad you provided the working stages, now I know that pieces like this can be done if you work on each element one by one. :)

I just HAVE TO fave this! The nostalgy, incredible technique and the composition is brilliant, everything is there. Well, almost everything, I am missing Stan, but that is just a nitpick.

@Tomic
Haha, that's the exact reason why i'll never post it here!
I'd rather meet my dentist than wasting my precious time with some pixeln00bs! ;)

Seriously, that pic have gone through way maaaaany edits through the years and I think it's just 99.9% pure pixelling in the end! ;P
...and since this year's TUM theme is "space",  I could change the palette, flip it and submit it again!!! :D

user

user
skan (Level 1 Depressed) at 12/11/2008 7:30:00 AM

The end of February hasn't come yet.

Well, looking at your piece again, I noticed that the way you pixelled it makes it look like you painted it by hand. Very awesome. :-)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 2/22/2007 8:26:00 PM
Really a beautiful piece, so well pixelled, the memoreis, blah, blah,blah.
I'm most fascinated by your choice of icon for this piece. I have come to notice that you are one of the few around here who gives thought to these matters. Perhaps it was an area that was the most challenging to pixel or is your fave in game area. I find several other areas that would have sold this far more effectively. Its nitpicking and slightly retarded but I wonder...

user
