I believe it's the xx:th time I came across this image on the HD and at the CSDb
thinking of the very simple, elegant situation in which Jailbird formulated the order.
Smooth, easy, laidback and all that jazz.

Puzzled and Ligeti, I prefer Ferrari at the moment.

Where is all that jazz? it's in the corners.

Really lovely, JB! 8) Nice coloring (though i wonder why you faded to dark grey in the background and not to brown or "dirty grey" (blue/brown lines alternating)) and really nice pixeltechnique! I always love to see the Made/Cyclone circlefadingstyle on c64 pics! ;-)

@Motion: well, my initial idea was to pixel a picture with as less chessboard-dither as possible, so any kind of overusage would ruin the main concept a bit ;)
Actually I already used a similar technique for the greetings part in Smart Girls Hate Booze, only that now I wanted it more colorful and just a little less clean.

A really nice piece - and a great choice of shading and colour, but I think dithering can pay off, too. Look at Vanja's style in this link.

Nice technique, although it seems from the final work stage that the next step would be to try dithering in creating a more vivid effect/layer of the colors.

I like the style a lot, and the motive has personality to it. Good job, JB!

I was really impressed when JB showed this a couple days ago. Excellent pixeling as always, surrealistic use of colors and dithering and still just *so* good in the end! Hats off.

Great use of multicolor mode. His face looks very very realistic still with the usage of unrealistic colors.
