Awh ens, i preferred the older flower shape. I think it would fit the more realistic skull better. And the skull looks awesome!

Setz, that looks pretty interesting so far.

NuffinInMyMuffin, that looks cool so far, quite amusing lookin. :D

Hiyu, i suggest more contrast and perhaps some saturation and hue variation in your ramps.

Keep it up everyone! I don't really have a clue what to do yet, if i am gunna do anything.

I love everything, Ens, except the roots. There should be lots of smaller tendrils extending out from what are currently the smallest thickness of root. But then again, I don't know if you're just trying to get everything to a similar level of completion and this is already on its way.

RPG is numberwang.

i dont think you guys are getting the challenge...  its not pixeling something that is ugly alone:
"Portray a person or object from every day life that does not conform to classic standards of beauty, but in a beautiful way"

you need to pixel something that is usually not beautiful, but make it beautiful. 

btw, update edit:

unlike most people I don't keep multiple copies of WIP progress :/
Instead I just save & upload the same file over and over again, and refresh to see the changes.

the B&W was supopsed to be temporary, but I kind of like the way this is turning out so I think I'll keep it (and maybe do color later)

thats fine, setz.  i saw every step you have taken with this.

instead of pure b&w or pure color, why not do kinda like in sin city, and colorize only the important parts?

Update :



I hope I understood the challenge the right way :-/

For me, this teddybear looks old and dirty but for his owner, it's the most beautiful object in the world.

I think I should work more on the "dirty" and "bad" aspect of the bear.

Any C&C welcomed.

More contrast on the rose needed, the leaf should be shadowed... probably. The way you've made the rocks makes it look like the larger ones are just getting closer, which would make the skull really small.... :/ (Or not really, depends how you look at it). Perhaps the smallest stones need to merge into the medium sized ones a little better. That's all the crits i've got!

I LOVE it though, the skull and added hand look ace.

wish: Looks good, though I'm not sure about the feet. Sitting on the floor like that, the top of my foot rests on the floor (so the tops of all my toes would be touching the floor) and my heel points up. So you wouldn't be seeing too much of the far foot and the closer one would show more achillies tendon than ankle bone in the outline, and the shape of the foot would taper pretty smoothly into a wedge shape, since the ball of the foot isn't very thick at the outside.

@Ens,

Just a suggestion, perhaps doing the soil with sedimentary (is that how it's spelt?) layers would add more interest.

@Ensellitis, that would be freaking sweet if you animated it.

Not that it isn't already freaking sweet, of course.

tossing around color ideas, i'll probably end up going with these flat greys in the end anyways, or maybe a very slight tint of blue or something.

Setzer - Your piece looks just like the one you did with the Evil palette.  The composition is exactly the same.  This one is looking much better though.
