Hello...

I dont know what to say, I've been through alot while making this, and at the last bit, I've pulled so many one nighters, was on cold turkey, and on drugs... and so on... had a boyfriend and broke up, so many emotional instances that gave me/took power to work on this...

Originally, this is supposed to be Deathwing from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm without it's armor...

Overall the total span was half a year, 410~ pure work hours.

Yeah... there are still small mistakes, please forgive me, but I'm calling this done...

Unglaublich.

...Yow.


user
JuninFC (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/16/2011 02:37

wow! Good Elk, is so perfect that it does not seem pixels


user
Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/16/2011 02:06

There's no point to look for flaws, this is pure art. Needless to say this sits on the summit of what can be done with pixels along with few other masters. The colors are like... out of their true identity and reflecting another star's lights.

Good part is I'm a WoW player, bad part is you removed most of your gallery before I had a chance to see.


user
TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/16/2011 01:47

I'm still lost for words... This is amazing, OMG... This is FAV, 7/7, monthly top and hall off fame. No doubt...


user
Kurt Russell Fan Club (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2011 01:08

 This is the best thing to happen, ever.


user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/16/2011 00:56

as i said, alot of emotional instances, so you can count those in ;)


user
I_Dan_I (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2011

Masterpiece =)


user
Ademisk (Level 1 Thug) @ 5/15/2011 23:35

 This will get a monthly #1 and become a top pixel on this site. I must say, well done! 


user
Robinson (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/15/2011 23:32

Wow. Hum, as the page appeared, my eyes burst. This is so Well Done!

My bro' came while I was watching it, said it was cool, but not original enough... I slapped him.


user
KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/15/2011 23:07

@Demon: No, it is the hordes most powerful dragon. A new boss.

Anyway, this looks fantastic. I cant spot any flaws, this is Deathwing alright. No questions asked, 6/6... I hope youll keep up this kind of work. Amazing.


user
Damian (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/15/2011 22:56

 This is pretty amazing. I don't think I would want to find a flaw, the sheer work, effort and time put in this is validation enough.


user
Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/15/2011 22:52

..What is it? Like a rabbit or something?


user
Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/15/2011 22:36

 Alright? Alright?! ALRIGHT?!?!? Unacceptable! This... This leaves me at a loss for words.


user
jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 5/15/2011 22:01

It's alright :)


user
Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 5/15/2011 21:54

great textures,and perfect shapes °_°' max vote 


user
Joe. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/15/2011 21:48

I don't think you need anyone to tell you how good this is... you must be so proud of the result.  It's pieces like these that I point to when I say pixels are a legitimate medium.

This is an amazing feat of pixels, well done.


user
Maeda (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/15/2011 21:17

 perfect !

So much dang swearing! D':

Haha, guess the community can't help themselves. ;)


user
Mini (Level 5 Sniper) @ 5/15/2011 20:42

god damn that thing is absolutely fuckn amazing :D
well done, you can tell you put so much time into this

was it fun to do or get absolutely sick of it at some points?


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 5/15/2011 20:27

ok . . .

Been waiting for this.

Will devote a little time to give it a real inspection so I can actually take it in, soon. A quick glance here at PJ is an insult to this piece.

Very few artworks evoke an emotional response from me. This did. Disbelief, horror, amazement, jealousy, inspiration, etc . . .

Everything is so good . . . wow . . . 410 hrs . . . ??? . . . !!! . . .

Thank you for sharing.


user
wuhu (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/15/2011 19:42

Damn, this scared the shit out of me when i opened it.

10/5


user
Myfault (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 5/15/2011 19:21

 What the fucking fuck? 


user
onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/15/2011 19:06

 come on!!! this is really incredible! most likely to replace 'Colossal Katamari' !!!! ;DDD 

again! incredible job!!!  

 

uhmm... maybe u could change the position of the dragon sligthly, to make him look more upwards. also the tail could positioned  a bit different imo...  maybe a bit like this ?

probably its not a big deal ;)))


user
wish04 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/15/2011 18:24

Damn this is awesome. Feels as if I could reach my hand out there and touch it. Love the different light sources and the shading in the gray area of his back.


user
[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/15/2011 17:37

U killed me and surely not only me!


user
HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/15/2011 17:23

Definitely no words... This...this is, beautiful!


user
Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/15/2011 16:47

Been waiting so long for this. Incredible job. The amount of effort and time you put into this really shows.


user
Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/15/2011 16:47

Holy shit, this is amazing. The detail, the lighting, the pose, the concept, hot damn man you are amazing. I can see what you mean about a few spots being rough, but nonetheless this is possibly the best pixel art I have ever seen. I wish I could favorite this more than once. I have a new desktop background, anyway!


user
Ovyx (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/15/2011 16:43

I like the way you spelt your name out by the top of the right wing. XD

Hope things get better for you and your personal life. :)

I think I just pissed my pants in sheer awe.

user
SpookyLotus (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/15/2011 15:58

This is amaxing, and such a big inspiration for me. I instantly recognized DeathWing, minus the armor. :D I even noticed your signature up there in the top.

Anyway, sorry for what you've been going through, and hope things get better. Thanks for uploading this. =]


user
weezllane (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 5/15/2011 15:56

This is some incredible pixeling.


user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/15/2011 15:52

when you look close at spots of the sky...you can see that areas are placed irregularly xD thats where I messed up the pattern sometimes so the patern is 1 pixel off


user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 5/15/2011 15:51

I have also been anticipating this for quite some time, Great to see it finished!

Congrats!


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 5/15/2011 15:48

I've been anticipating this piece for a while now :o but I really feel that I should voice my suspicions about the veracity of the cloudy backround. It very much comes across as looking like the type of ordered dither that one would expect to find from a colour reduction; that is, lots of dithering but almost no detail, and you're obviously capable of detail.

Regardless, all the non-dithered parts look great, especially the mouth area and the rocks under the tail.


user
Ovyx (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/15/2011 15:47

OMG nice.


user
Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 5/15/2011 15:35

Holy crap this is insane.  I can't believe my eyes its so incredible!  Possible the best pixelart ive ever seen!
