My first time entering a weekly contest here on PJ 
This is what I have so far. I thought I'd go with the apple team and maybe a young Jobs? :)
 
Cloudy dreams~

@Elk: I don't think so too, because width and height is especially given this time with brackets.

rough as hell, but the sh*tty colors come out better than I thought the motive should be something which has to do with an apple =)

Djinni: The iPixel Nano doesn't look significant enough a part of the image for my liking. Maybe something in between the two?

Trust Apple to take a voxel and label it a pixel so that from now on every trendy git will call voxel pixel and the term pixel will become meaningless.

And no doubt they'll patent the pixel and the voxel and start suing anyone who uses pixels in their art or hardware and anyone uses the term pixel except to refer to their device and anyone who develops a product in any way vaguely similar so hexels and texels are out too.

So should I change to it ( v ) in order to not mistake pixels with voxels?



[edit]

If so, what about this?

I liked the pixel in 3d better, even though technically it's a voxel.

@jinn, I thought the big pixel was great but the newest flickering one is even better.

E: New version is better because he looks less 'ill'. Even though the face wasn't right before it still clearly read Steve Jobs to me.

The shading is weird, I don't really see Steve Jobs in your drawing of him, and the CD makes his hand look REALLY big. Try fixing all of those issues.

It's not supposed to be Steve Jobs. At least the rules don't say so.

overworked the colors, special thanks to Manupix for his very good advice and I changed the complete anatomy of the woman. Also the overall perspective should be now a bit nicer than before.

@Arnaldo: try to make the elbow like an elbow and give the limb an crack, that should help. Also the lower arm is a touch to long.

@Cyangmou: The colours are a big improvement. I'm not sure about the clouds though. Everything else is so crisp and clearly defined, but the clouds just melt into the sky. Also, why are the clouds brighter underneath? Looking at the way you've shaded the tree, the grass and the characters, it doesn't look like the sun is setting.

@Arnaldo: I think the hair should be broken down into smaller "chunks", curls or locks of hair, if you will. I also think you should look at the proportions of the upper body, such as by creating a clear elbow joint that connects (and separates) the upper and lower arm. Right now, the entire arm is just a curve.

Any suggestions on how I could improve this? The damn colours...
Also, am I allowed to have the border? It's still 140 x 192, with the border.

But sadly it seems I won't have the time to finish it this week. Well, I had my fun with it, and who knows, maybe I'll do finish it after the challenge.

Might actually participate in this one, at least if I gain more artistic direction.  I think there's a pretty heavy Mrmo Tarius influence going on.

The pixelling quaility is very poor and needs improvement.
Public queue scoring has been even poorer so it has been sent back.

You are new to PJ and pixelart so don't be hurt by this. Learn from it.

Pixelart in a pixelart site requires a certain level of pixel precision and control you have yet to master. This is just about practicing and working at it and you'll soon get it.

This forum is for help to those who wish to help themselves so take advantage of this.

Thank you.


It is a palette challenge not an apple challenge. Concentrate on challenging yourself by using colors as a directive. These colors are tough to work with so force it.
Even tho most entries seem to have taken 'apple' literally this challenge does not have to have an apple company related theme at all.
