living inside PART II by OliverJanoschek living inside PART II by OliverJanoschek
hi folks,

I am DONE with it ;)

after (aprox.) 300 hours of hard work - I finished Lining Inside PART II

What you see is Adenauer Allee 29 - 33 (HAMBURG) at about 01:00PM at a regular friday.

I started this picture by taking about 100 reference shots with my digicam to have some material at home that

enabled me to get into details. I tried to make it look as accurate as possible. the building right in the

middle of this picture (the one with the metal pencil) is the HTK (hamburg technical school of arts =

Hamburger Technische Kunstschule). The most of the people you see are the very individuals I study with - so

I tried to make everyone of them special and I hope I got them all right.

I allowed myself to bend reality at one point: the backyards. I have done this simply because the real

backyards behind these buildings is quite boring and though there would have been nothing interesting to

show. I hope that noone from hamburg will mind ;)

to prevent some of the "classic" pixelists here at DA from arguing about the fact that I used 2755 colors I

wanted to give you all a simple and honest answer:

I don't really see a reason to stick to 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256 colors. I wanted to create the living inside

images not primarily for the web or a computer screen, but they were intended to be printed. The second point

is that I wanted them to be as realistic as possible and still with no doubt PIXELART This could only

be done with a more intense shading, and this as we all know needs more colors.

well that's all for a reason

So I hope you all enjoy wathing it as much as I enjoyed makin it!


Respect and thanks go out to:

~dojoh thanks for your support dude! you're the best!

~cganderson keep rockin dude the 300DPIs dude! thanks for all the shizzle

~bgr thanks for letting me use pixeldam style peeps and ypur supporting words through the creation

process

and I want to thank every single one I study with - you're all the best! stay as you are folks!

and last but not least I wanted to thank everybody that commented and :+fav:ed the first living inside! I

aprreciate all the loving support and I appologize that I can't write a individuall "thank you to everyone

that commented!


So that's all about Living Inside Part II

Comments are as always welcome and very appreciated!

don't forget to look at LIVING INSIDE PART IV

EDIT(09.22.2003): Well I had to change the category to indyart, because pixelart is not allowed for DAPrints. Besides I made a few tweaks considering the cars outlines! thanks to `wenstrom for letting me reconsider :)

EDIT PART II(09.24.2003): DAMN I am so stupid for some times :( I totally forgot to set some of my coloring layers back to visible. Thanks to `splat I realised that my houses were all grey. This happens when someone is TOO tired to think :S Well I fixed it and I hope you still like ;)

EDIT PART III(10.12.2003): Did some final tweaks that noone would have noticed ;) but i think it is better this way :D

Thanks a bunch for the DD. Kind of unexpected if you look at the date I've submitted this artwork. :D

oh and thanks for all the comments and :+fav:s I got and I am getting. please don't be mad if I don't answer directly to them, it's just that it would keep me busy quite a long time to answer them all seperately! but rest assured, they are all read and appreciated :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-02
living inside PART II by `multivitamin has a very 'slice of life' feel to it, with a lot of activity going on all at once! Be sure to take the time to take a good look at the whole piece, there are so many fun little details you don't want to miss. ( Suggested by jomet and Featured by armaina )

Your shadow angle's a little inconsistent. The building shadows should be much longer. Compare it to the tree and consider how much taller those buildings are than that tree is. Also with the sun blocked by the building the people in the shadow won't produce well defined shadows of their own as they're lit by the sky instead. They should have diffuse dark spots under them as they block more of the sky the closer you get to their feet. The exception is if their shadow extends out into sunlight it should be added onto the silhouette of the building in addition.

A few great details I love in this piece:
  • The little hearts in the basketball court
  • The cat on the roof (??)
  • The grafitti effect
  • The creepy neon green light in the trash bin
  • The composition - most pixel art relies on cubes, which are kinda boring in isometric view
  • The heart carved in the tree
  • The sloppily parked car bending the street sign
  • The dude in the black trenchcoat with blond hair and evil red eyes
  • The lighting effect on the car/bus windows
  • The smoke from the girl next to the car's open trunk

i completely agree with you on the colour usage. i dont see why i should have to limit the colours i use, if it just looks so much better with varied tones and contrasts... its something that shouldnt be discouraged :)
