This was my contribution to the Handmade Graphics competition at Breakpoint 2010. It was ranked 2:nd.

320*256, 28 colors (of 32 possible). OCS-restrictions (the chipset in amiga 1000, amiga 500 and amiga 2000)

Made with Grafx2 in windows, and Deluxe Paint 3 on amiga 500, and Inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft.

I hope dawnbringer stops poking me about making OCS/ECS graphics now!

nvision: Well, To be honest, I came up with the name after it was finished and I was a bit in a hurry. I nearly named it "Din mamma" (Your mom) in drunken half panic. Damn deadlines!

So.. I didn't plan to make a "pickman's model" more than "let's make some cool lovecraftian horror monster thingy"..

Next time I might try to make one of lovecrafts more cosmic horrors. I just have to figure out how to pixel multidimensional things.


user
nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/12/2010 16:10

Excellent work, overall, however, after viewing your WIP, I think it could have been a lot stronger if you had left it at an earlier stage.  The lighting looks a little too dead-on, and I feel some sort of directional lighting would have really helped avoid the feeling of symmetry and overpolish.  Revealing the whole of Pickman's model is rather like the difference between the original Alien movie and Aliens; the first has an atmosphere of horror and the unknown, as you only get partial glimpses of the lone creature, whereas Aliens fills the screen with full illuminated hordes.  It's still a good film, but lacks a little of the subtley and intensity.

Technique is perfect.

Sh*t. That's cool O_O


user
Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/12/2010 08:49

I like your style. Especially the dithering. 


user
dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/12/2010 04:11

Both your pictures, Tomic, are masterpieces, and I didn't mixed them up :) Keep up the good work! My picture landed at 14th place... sad but true ;) It wasn't even half good as yours.


user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/12/2010 03:50

agreed =)

did you see my pic at bp? cause it may not be confused with the 8 color winter submarine - this was another competition. i'm gonna do a final version of the other one before submitting it here.

@frost: well, i've missed the last 3 breakpoints, thus last time there where pixels near the front was 2005 and 2006 =)


user
dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/12/2010 02:31

Good work, Frost. Really good. But I think that Tomic's work should be on second place and your's on third. Nevertheless, you keep Amiga feeling alive!


user
Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/12/2010 01:47

Impressive textures


user
Amanita (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/10/2010 17:34

Hehe..You have now for certain earned your seat at the pixel-warriors table in Valhalla

...but how can you not like Iron Maiden?


user
Petrichor (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 4/8/2010 19:29

Oh my god, Pickman's Model is one of my favourite HPL stories <333

Stunning, as usual. I can never muster any kind of insightful comment about your work :P


user
Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/8/2010 13:55

Great work with many a wonderful placement of colours.


user

user
Kravvon Nar'roth (Level 4 Ensign) @ 4/8/2010 08:25

 It's when I see things like this that I'm reminded how far I have yet to go in my pixel art skills. You really created an awesome piece here. I really like it.


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/8/2010 08:22

Well, It was I that refused/didn't bother to scale the picture..

And also, "still less than frost"... It gave me a pretty good laugh.

It was really nice to se pixel pictures in the top three, in both compos! First time that happened at Breakpoint?


user
Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 4/8/2010 04:14

It's pieces like these that remind me how bad I am at pixel art... fantastic work! this is awesome.


user
Ivy00 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/8/2010 03:24

awesome entry!  I could not watch the stream this year it was so screwed up on my end for some reason.  Too bad it was the last BP party :)


user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/8/2010 02:39

awesome! tho, i didn't shit bricks in the compo =)

mostly because the organizers did not scale it to fullscreen, but ohwell, you seem to have compendsated it by collecting enough votekeys =) 4 points, damnit =)

missed to meet you there.. even at the pricegiving there was no frost when i came to the stage =/


user
Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/8/2010 01:27

omg. i'ts awesome. .o. 


user
Fagertveit (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/8/2010 00:43

Awesome stuff! I love Pickmans Model, and I love me Amiga 500 so it's a win win situation all throug! Great work, got somewhat of a ethereal feeling over it 


user
Mis-BUG (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/7/2010 22:54

oooh... com'on... You're Frost and the subject is awesome... How can anyone be surprised by the result?

P.S.: photoshop and graphicsgale can batch in a single animation all your files... I don't know if you can do this with gimp or some other online service too... I really would like to see the WIP


user
slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 4/7/2010 20:58

Why did I have to see this at 11 at night before I go to bed

user
wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/7/2010 18:04

Man I Would Realy Love to See The WIPs Love IT MAn Your Arts Are Incredible Dude I Love Em =)


user
Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/7/2010 17:57

I think I love you. :P

Very nice work. You're rapidly becoming my favorite pixel artist. XD


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/7/2010 17:30

Well, I hate Iron Maiden and I would never ever rip something from them.

But, I hate to say that I see some similarities with Eddie. :(

 

I might also have to say that this is not any rip of any kind. I might do a WIP-animation if someone gives me a program that can batch load images...


user
PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 4/7/2010 17:04

reminds me of some iron maiden poster :p


user
Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/7/2010 16:30

 slept well? 

awesome dithering and ...frightening, of course!
