#ffffff vs. #000000


I had planned to do a 1-bit pixel for a while now, but wasn't too sure about the theme. Every time I feel uninspired I usually begin to randomly scribble faces, orks or warhammer related stuff; sticked with the latter this time.

Reference: Unfortunately, I do not own the miniature so I had to work from photo  Great Unclean One, greater daemon of Nurgle.

I'd play this game on Mac.

vraiment sympa

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/11/2016 14:25

That's true. We mods try to give every single piece as much 'air-time' as possible. However, sometimes there are just too many pixels waiting in line. ;)

Siikikala (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 1/9/2016 04:05

Sometimes pieces just fly by the new section in front page it seems.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/8/2016 09:35

Slipped through somehow. Thanks a ton, man!

Siikikala (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 1/6/2016 02:47

oh wow, this is gold. Nice one, dont know how i missed it.

Thank you very much. Glad to see that you are back, or at least pop in from time to time. ;)

I missed this one too;  it's sick. Been missing lots of good ones though since I've been away. 

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/21/2015 05:03

Thanks a ton, buddy!

I recall that you are a fan as well, really glad you like it. :)

Theoden (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 12/19/2015 01:09

How did I miss this one?

I love Warhammer and this is ace.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/7/2015 08:15

@ finlal

Thanks, man!

20 Tits, 50 vaginas, 200 dicks and countless animal body parts on a woman's torso.  That's a lot of clicking.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/7/2015 08:11

@ Cynips

Great you like it, buddy. Thank you very, very much.

I get a lot of inspiration from your work, keep 'em pixels coming!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/7/2015 08:10

@ bobo

Thank you very much! I'm glad that finlal posted it, haven't seen it before. What an outstanding piece!

I see what you mean, it does look a bit odd on some parts. Often enough during pixelling, I just start experimenting with never-used patterns. I liked that simple one quite a bit, hence the massive use.

Thanks again, it was quite a challenge to lay down the huge white clusters without ruining the proportions and proper spacing. Smaller pieces are not as complex, however, no matter the size, 1-bit art is still a pain in the butt. ;)

Yeah, pls, pls do! I would love to see your results. Hehe, boobies!

@Finlal, thanks! Far more interesting to look at now then it already was back then.

Also totally agree, slaanesh demons for your next piece(s), Mandrill

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 12/7/2015 01:04

@bobo, here ya go.
@Mandrill, somehow I missed that piece. Really great job for just 2 colors.
One little nitpick though - Slaanesh demons look better, so you should have drawn them instead.

Cynips (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/1/2015 07:30
 Wow, how could I miss that?!

Absolute mastery of 1-bit art. And in black and white! I love it!

Awesome work mate, hats off.

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 11/22/2015 15:01

Was quite some time since I saw such a complex 1 bit piece in such a great quality!

Sadly ThePixelKnight has deleted his gallery, so I can't compare it with his 1 bit clown

I'm not sure about the way you dithered either, I think it flattens the image in some parts which might have been better just without it. Althrough they do work in other places imo. At some places it reminds me a bit of stitchings, which would fit the character but they aren't placed in a way to convey that. But I would have to try out myself if what I imagine would actually look better or worse

As I already said (but I want to emphasise it a bit more ), most other good 1 bit pieces are less complex (like cartoon/anime style) so I'm quite excited to see one that isn't and is also really well done!

I've to try doing one myself but I'll probably go for a less complex one (maybe Slaanesh instead? Seems to require less complex textures )

Fusionnist (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/19/2015 12:22

Lies, lies, lies ;)

Thanks for telling me you like my jokes anyway :P

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 11/19/2015 11:15

@ Manu

Thank you very much, Manu.

I see what you mean. I had tried it with some bubble dithering and other patterns, but they all proved to be much less effective than simple net-dithering.

Yeah, I'm not 100% satisfied with how the piece turned out. Still, I've learned a lot from it and recommend every pixel artist to try their hands on 1-bit art. It's a fantastic challenge. 

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 11/19/2015 11:09

@ Fusionnist

Hehe, good one.

One of the toughest pixels I did this year, thanks!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 11/19/2015 11:07

@ Kyle_ap_Evan

Great to hear, thanks.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 11/19/2015 11:06

@ Otakhun

Thanks a lot!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/19/2015 05:53

I think the linear dither-texture doesn't work. Everything else is awesome!

Fusionnist (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/18/2015 04:09

You had some [guts] to try this!

(Pun intended) 

Kyle_ap_Evan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/17/2015 17:27

Absolutely love it well done.

Otakuhn (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/17/2015 14:37

Looks spectacular , fantastic job!
