Rider - my first pixel art since 1993! Uses the Amiga 12-bit colour palette.

Based on 'Death Dealer' by Frank Frazetta.

Was great fun revisiting Dpaint in over a decade. I've got the bug

Oh yea - you can find the WIP anim gif here ....

I agree with DonDidDon, it also reminds me the Witch Haven for DOS.

Awesome work.

Whisper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/6/2016 03:58

Wow! It's so amazing that you transform Frazetta's Death Dealer into pixel art. :0

This makes me think of the front ocover of "Witch haven" game.

Its big and impressive on 1st sight. The composition is snappy !
Lacks detail and looks sort of vague on closer look though.

Wow, "Prisoner of the Horned Helmet" by James Silke is one of my favorite books.  You really captured the Death Dealer here, great job.  I would LOVE to see the full thing with the horse, BTW.

user
Dentralt (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/1/2008 09:24
Oh, that's really nice.

Imo it's a bit too evil-ish, don't like that sort of stuff, but from a pixelling point of view this is phenomonal. (Did I spell that right?)

user
countach (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/21/2008 08:00
The dithering is near perfection.

EdensReject (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/15/2007 21:35
5 from me but it looks a lot like Ishan's Shade (from M:tG). Not like it's hard with al those curly helmeted folklores. Good job!

Thanks for your great comments . They are really appreciated.

grave: I'd like to do the full piece, with the horse - one day, perhaps.

At the moment I'm working on a new style (for me) - aimed at what I've seen on pixeljoint, and what I see as the modern way for pixel gfx - a cleaner feel rather than wasting pixels to AA. Ironically back in the Amiga days we dreamt of infinite colors & high resolution, we antialiased everything to compensate for low resolution, and would have given our right arm for Photoshop.

I love the fact that today, with all the available hi-tech gfx packages, people are still restricting themselves to 12-bit pallettes, 320x200, and discussing techniques in overcoming restrictions that haven't been a problem for 15 years.

Fantastic .

Long live pixel art.

user

Added reference to 'Death Dealer' by Frank Frazetta to the desc.

user
grim666 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/3/2006 23:49
come on this is the "Death dealer" not rider

user
grim666 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/3/2006 23:46
You should put the Frank Frazetta's name in the comments this is his "Death Dealer" I hope you know that. Other then that good work and his eyes should be red for the demon mask that has trapped him comes from a bloody keep and everyone knows that demons have red eyes except  Loke  he has green:0

vanSchmidt (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/3/2006 12:23
This style rocks the most in my opinion. This is mind blowing, you're awesome and ur a good role model! lol. I want to draw just like you..it looks supurb and theres nothing you can do better on it. omg

user
verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/1/2006 02:37

Ok Helm, I'll bear that in mind for the future. My next piece will be original.

SeanGraal - dpaint was a graphics tool for the Amiga.
