28 colors.

For a personal project;

I guess it’s my opus magnum in pixelart for now. Spent around 40 hours on it during last month.

I feel the subtle detail of the background is the best part.
amazing use of color
especially how you've perfectly captured the shape and texture of his suit material.

great job A+

Great piece. It has a strong 90's feel - for some reason it reminds me of my old Amiga, brings back memories...
The dithering patterns are fantastic, it give a very interesting grain to the image when zooming in.

Thank you! The end of the 80s and the first half of 90s is my childhood, so I'm glad I've captured the feeling, as you mention it.

What was your process for making this? What are the different challenges between making exquisite pixel art and making a "normal" painting?

:iconorange-magik:
orange-magik Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2016  Professional General Artist
The process is pretty usual. Idea, sketch, hard work for a lot of hours. Nothing special.
The second question is a difficult one. I'd say there is no real difference. You can't make "exquisite" pixelart if you can't draw or paint a "normal" one with comparable qualities. There is certainly some kind of specifics within limited palettes and the need to express "much in little", but this is scarcely exclusive for pixelart.

I like it. It has a retro sci-fi feel to it like some of the old sci-fi novels I have.

That's a thing of beauty right there.
It reminds me of the sort of art you'd see in an 80's sci-fi comic.

Such a cool style! Reminds me of classic SF like Lensman or Starship Troopers.

Also--pixel art?! *head explodes* I didn't even notice until I read the description. Super good work, you just got yourself a watcher :)

Thank you! I'd say it is much more "colored etching/gravure" than oils. Personally, I can't stand painting, and not so good with it=)
