colour distribution

Really digging this style now lol


By any chance did you see the piq I uploaded a while back using only 2 colours?

Im not sure about which one specifically your referring to, but i do know about your avocation for the dither tool and figured i would give it a try, and its shockingly good in this medium for shading and adding depth

Go on my other profile, the most recent thing (coloured purple-ish) very similar style. You'll get it once you see it.

got it.
by Jovan, 11 February 2017 20:15
Oh yeah i had seen that one, already slipped it a like because i could see what you were going for, its hard when only using two colors to create depth and give a feeling of space but i feel like in this i got it more than any of the other pieces ive done in this style where i didnt really try to go for the effect
by Lumpkins, 11 February 2017 20:17
Yeah, it took me a while to get that your image had a figure in it. I think the issue is we need a larger canvas. I mean, that is the only issue. Even on 200 the space is to crammed, and doesn't leave enough space for negatives and gradients

I dont mind the limitation so much, its invokes challenge and a cool opportunity for reflecting on art your proud of saying "damn i made that in only 200 pixles, thats not bad"
by Lumpkins, 11 February 2017 20:31
I guess, but it can't look as good as this in 200 by 200:http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/new_contest_entry.png

Fair point

Why dont you just take the time to make a permanent profile picture
by Jovan, 11 February 2017 20:48
My style has evolved and changed so much over the past 3 years that its unlikely i would be content with the same profile picture defining me for more than a few weeks. I like the image thats attached to my profile out of my now extensive catalog to be topical to the type of artist i am at that moment so people will know what there getting when and if they choose to peruse my recent works

Thats not how I am, I prefer to have one definitive image, and let my shit art speak for itself.

People see my profile picture, and immediately associate it with something.
