Hm, i hate to say it but i've seen better (in my opinion) from Joe. I dont really like the eyelashes and the eyes on the left and right face seem a little unproportional or smthn.

Like the snake & lizards tho.

This is unbelievably great. I love pretty much everything in this picture: composition, colors - and ofcourse dithering, with which Joe continues to impress and surprise, even after all these years! ;-)
Only bordergfx could've made this even better! ;-)

I think today is about the 15th time i am back to this picture to check it out. This is truly a masterpiece, the tehnique, the composition and the inmense amount of detail in this multicolour pic is breathtaking.

Wow, wow, wow! Straight 10. Joe, I would have never thought that the pic could still improve so much compared to the already great preview you had sent... the animals and especially the one in the middle that brings in some new colours as well make this picture even more demanding to interpret as is has so many different layers of pixel magic to look at.

very stylised very contempory and very very good this is pure art in that it uses a retro medium to display an image that is ...in its make up 8bit in other words old yet goes beyond its building blocks to portray a cutting edge feel that somehow outshines its humble origins that to me is very ,very special

This is probably the best multicolor picture I have seen.
The use of colours and dithering is superb. I just had to fire it up on my television set to watch it in it's "true" form and it looks even better with the natural bleeding the CRT gives it. It's hard to believe that it's plain multicolor...
I have to disagree with those that think the sideborders need some pixels... The use of complementary colours in the side borders is a nice touch that frames the picture and gives it more depth. That effect wouldn't be the same if the motif was expanded to the borders.
The only thing that I can complain about is the details around the mouth on the rightmost face. The lines looks somewhat artificial and pops out a bit to much due to the contrast. I think it's the white pixels in the corner of the mouth that gives that impression... but it's just nitpicking. :)
Almost every new picture you release shows improvement in both technique and artistic skills. Your work is very inspiring and it makes me want to work harder to improve my own skills.
Fucking ace work, you pixel-robot-maniac!

Amazing artistic and technical skills. I'm pretty much speechless that this is possible in plain multicolor. Hats off Joe! Can't wait to see more from you -- and we definitely should do something together sometime soon!

(Oh, and what everyone said about the sideborders... :))

Excellent! There's so many nice touches going on here, I spent quite a lot of time looking at it and just kept noticing new things!

Outstanding in an already strong pic compo, this one was a true jawdropper on the party. The inspiring stlye is instantly recognisable.

In music, many times I feel that there are no new ways of thinking now'days - I just have to take a look at your pixel art to realise there are. Thanks for the experience/inspiration!

hmmm... what can I say... when I look at this I just know that you are a true master of the trade, this is insane in all aspects... I want to be this good... but I just have to stick with my own things as this is far beyond what I could do... the clever color useage is so impressive that I have no words for it... You are aweseome...

Think I will print this one out on a big sheet and hang on my wall here in my home...

Great image. One of Joe's best!
Those reptiles look like Green Anoles.
One question: Why is the image called Earth ?

UPDATE: Now i've recovered from the shock..
I have to agree with others, that the sideborders could really use some pixels.

As fantastic as Earth looks, the neck areas on the left and right faces don't match the quality of the rest of the image.
