Mouse-drawn and -pixelled.

The lineart took a long time and so did the texturing, everything on and off over the last 3 weeks, I've been working on it very hard in the last couple of days. Well it took a long time summoning the army, getting the troops together, you can imagine.

Reference: I was paging through a book of Adrian Smith's warhammer drawings when I saw a pic called the 'Skaven Battle Line - Warhammer Armies 2001'. I thought it would look cool in pixel art, so I tried to make the same battle line, but in a different more cartoony style. Notice the oversized heads and giant upper bodies. Also I changed a lot of the details since my proportions made some stuff different. A lot had to be improvised and changed. The image was in greyscale and for the duration of this piece the book was on my lap for reference :).

Inspiration: The B.O.B.'s war picture titled 'the Massacre'. And Big Brother since and I am inspired by his work and games, he also informed me about the existence of pixel joint.

Colours: 12

Amazing work in only 12 colors.  The distance fade is very good, and the sun glare is perfection.  Fived and faved!

Wow, your color reuse is ace!  You packed in alot of details into the scene, expecially the pikes fading as they go back.  You have definately earned a place in the hall of fame for this.  You have earned a place in MY hall of fame, which is better than anyother hall of fame, IMO.

9/9 +fave

Hope to see more from you.  I am adding you to my buddies so I can keep an eye on you, you crazy son of a bitch

Thanks for all the comments  The home site of Adrian Smith is here: http://www.adriansmith.co.uk/index.html I couldn't find his skaven battle line drawing, though one can see a lot of his stuff. Inspirational artist.

an amazing piece, moreso for the limited colours and what you've achieved. One thing I think could be handled better is the sky and lack of detail there... but that's just being overly picky. There is so much to look at and enjoy. I will many times zoom in and out on this one and admire your skill.

Great piece, and I love the color choices.  I smell a (well deserved) monthly top.  Do you have a link to the reference picture?

Damn, that is nice. Love the attention to detail, and the palette is fantastic (though I'd swap the pureblack for something slightly less harsh/dark). This is definitely a fave.
