I started doing this pixel last month. He served as a training how to use dithering and why NEVER use dithering. I studied some pixel-arts which has a overdithering, as the "Elk's Deathwing", by Elk.

I tried to understand the different patterns used in dithering, and when to use them. I think I understood. Just not reached the desired goal. Dithering didnt softened the transition of colors. Still can notice the pixels.

The colors have been a problem early. An adventurous young man venturing into the sea of colors, with no idea of what is Colors Theory. That's me. From the initial sketch( to the final result, I added two colors, and I do not know where they are.

I wanted to add a spaceship there. Would be nice. Maybe later.

Ps: the pixel wasn't accepted on the first time. And on the second time too.

I really like this. Like, REALLY really. This is an EXCELLENT exhibit of great dithering. I will definitely be studying this for some time to come.

Yeah, this looks very much like Photoshop ordered dither reduction or something along the same lines.

Really cool! On my high res screen pixels are hard to see, it more creates a soft texture that fits the sky really well!!

Well done :D

Not sure why this hasn't been accepted. 

Was there a ref that you used for this?
