He swaggers like he's got a head full of daggers.

I tried to combine pixel aesthetic with "brush strokes" that hide the medium.

My current job hunt can be stressful, so I wanted to make a relaxing piece that's cozy on the eyeballs. No skulls or butts this time around.

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/5/2009 02:32

ahaha, that smoke is a woman, indeed! when i first looked at the piece, i thought it would be a flower!


user
TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/4/2009 15:18

When you don't have a job, Big Brother, times must be bad. I didn't notice that smoke as a woman either, it's that extra touch of class you bring to your work that makes you such a good artist. Favourited and straight into the 5/5s. :D

Extraordinary! What style and charisma.


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/4/2009 11:29

I like it a lot. Sharper midcurves would help somewhat, but it's a nitpick.


user
Fenne (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/4/2009 10:47

That's indeed very stylish. I didn't realise the smoke was a person itself after I read the comment af Jaeden, but I never see the little details...
 


user
Panda (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/4/2009 10:12

Looks really stylish but is is over AA'd, especially on the curves.

Good job though.


user
Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 8/4/2009 09:58

I wish I could fave this twice. I keep coming back to admire it some more.

Only thing that bugs me is that I think a thin cigarette would suit the character more than a cigar.


user
Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/4/2009 07:36

25 colors and the antialiassing is fantastic. The smoke is fantastic and it was the breasts that first caught my attention realizing it was a woman.


user
spiv (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/4/2009 05:58

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kája_Saudek - I like this style!


user
Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/4/2009 00:35

I absolutly love the style that oozes out of this thing. Freaking awesome.

I might actually be the only one who thinks there's some over AA on the top of the head though, and possibly the arms. It seems like the legs have the same amount, but it also seems like it works more effectivly there because of the colors. I don't know if it's the colors up there that are the reason I think they could use less AA, but I think they stand out more to me than the legs. The Hair definitly does (The arms are something I think could go either way).

I still love it either way. It's just so pleasing to look at.

EDIT: Actually, looking again, the legs definitly have less because of the 45 degree angles. To compensate, you thickened the black outline (it seems to me at least), and I would wonder if that technique would work just as effectivly on parts of the arms (IE, back arm's elbow, and most of the other arm's upper side).

Henoi (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/3/2009 14:34

Dude that is awesome, love it!

Brother's got style!

user
onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/3/2009 07:56

wow! ´ i love the drapery on the shirt, also the  woman in the smoke is ace!!! 6/6


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2009 06:55

Unbelievable... : O (awed silent gape!)

The foot is OK to me, it's just part of the exaggerated dynamics. And I like the dots on the ground, they really give a lot of the swagger.

Must take ages to learn walking like this, lol!


user
Solitaire (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/3/2009 03:41

 good to see you're still well alive, big brother. great work as always, knew it was yours right away. <3

Excellent AA !


user
smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/3/2009 02:17

Amazing. I love the old-schoolish feel to it, and it almost doesn't even look like pixel art. Great job!


user
susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/2/2009 23:10

Hysteria (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/2/2009 21:51

Same as Dex, that guy is about to break his foot x).

Fantastic style, well done.


user
Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 8/2/2009 21:50

But, but booty makes the world go 'round.


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/2/2009 20:43

Excellent as always, but I do believe the foot he's thrusting forward would break in that position =D

Looks great~


user
RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/2/2009 20:42

WOW it's effing amazing :D fav'd i love the palette and the pose!


user
The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 8/2/2009 20:03

I love the style and distortion of this piece. Has a nice feel to it, like the type those scene hi-res art guys like to do. The paint splashes also add muchly' to the awesomeness of this piece.

ps, booties can relieve stress....submitting...
