Have to say this is quite obviously a very lazy colour-reduction job.

You don't have to go so low as to fake the working stages, most people here simply don't care.

Great work here. However, knowing how modern converters perform it's easy for people to say that the picture looks converted. Being shown first and stated as nufli (iirc) probably only strenghtened this impression at X. Details like ordered dithering and even the peculiar vertical stripes on the left side of the picture surely don't help in giving the impression that the picture would be handdrawn.

You may be a cyborg dithering machine, but making the pictures less like machine-made would surely make them more appreciated.

@booker thanks, I appreciate the comments! I used a moodboard, http://i.imgur.com/ZOxzjyU.jpg to get the basic idea down, kept it on my iPad beside me so that I was able to look at it when I got stuck.

Hey, did you use any photo graphics references for this (rotoscoping or something)? This looks really cool to me.

@Shine I had my stages in the zip-file that I gave Burglar, but unfortuenetly they were left out of the final release. Available here: http://i.imgur.com/jz8o4XD.gif .

@Lamb, the quality of the compo was really high, and there were a lot of great entries. The only thing that I could complain about was being shown first, and with the realtime voting system at X, people are unlikely to go back and change their votes after seeing the compo. But someone had to be first, and overall I'm quite satisfied. The most important thing is that there are loads of entries!

@ Lamb:
I am not sure, but i guess some people think, this may not be pixeled by hand only. ;)

Do I miss the reason why such a great work was ranked so low?
