I like a challenge, but Jailbird is just insane! The very idea of pixelling an image like this in hi-res gives me the willies! Very nice!

The name says it all: you are a liar! :)
Stunning picture, even if it were afli it would rank among the good ones.
I personally adore the mouth. SOOOO smooth fading here, really making the impression.
On a different note, spritelayers do rule, usually...

Thanks for your feedback, people!

The whole (stupid) idea was to check if I could do a plain bitmap picture with traditional dithering/coloring. A sprite layer would ruin the concept.

In case some of you missed it, "ugly single color" is a reference to the title of Mirage's hi-res picture (Single Colour is Ugly). Nothing to do with it though, just liked the title :)

@Helm: I was way below my lowest limit of motivation and patience when finishing that right part. Actually, the red to black dither on the image is almost invisible on the real deal. :)

Usually when eyes are completely white like this without any shading/shadowing/reflection they come out pretty dull without expression, but it seems to work OK here...

now back to plain old double-pixel heaven, arnold :)

p.s. the nose looks alright aswell ;P

Technical merit! Very good hiding of the hires limitation. Perhaps the circle-y style dither is too uniform around the face where it goes towards pure black?

Very clean!! You sure it's plain hires bitmap!? With 2-3 sprites on well chosen places there would be no sign of graphical limits at all! Love it, eventhough it's a bit hollywood style ;).

I like the use of the black background, especially around the eyes and top right.

Yes, it's a copy, sorry. I promise a more meaningful picture next time ;)
