Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by Mistress-Jaeden Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by Mistress-Jaeden
Dimensions are - 322x518
Colors used are - 14
Time elapsed - Took me like 3-4 weeks, I worked on it non stop at first,, then we went on vacation for a week, then shaun got me into warcraft *hangs head*
Hours spent - probably around 20, maybe more... not sure
Program - Microsoft Paint, Rotate and color correction done in Paint Shop Pro

Why did you make this? - In 2001 I was doodling an image on some construction paper and made - [link] After reading the comments, praising the originality of its concept, I decided I wanted to color it.. What a better medium then pixel?

Yes, I changed a fair ammount of it, and mirrored a part of it, but I think it is one of the most beautiful pieces Ive done, and Im quite proud of it.
Anyone who bitches about the anatomy needs to grasp the concept on imagination *nods head proudly*


Thank you for the daily Deviation ^_^ And everyone for there wonderful comments, I have another thing in my head, Im probably going to make it my next banner.. cant explain it but I promise it will be another "learning session"

Id also like to add that this was another learning expierement for me; Depth. A few people mentioned that it was well portrayed. Im quite happy that my first play on abstract depth went so well.

It was also my first monotone pixel piece. The pallet originates from a layout sky scene a friend is working on, with a few edits. Thanks hun!

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-07-02
I knew my tears had a little something extra in them last time I shed them! Whats in a tear? -PIXEL- by ~Mistress-Jaeden is an impressive, imaginative close-up of our favorite (or not so-favorite!) salty-discharge in a web-esque style. Peep it well!

"...The pallet originates from a layout sky scene a friend is working on..."

While I do quite like your work here, this comment makes me think twice if this should have really been given a DD. I mean... did you really have to swipe someone else's palette ('with edits'- nice) instead of just making your own? :no:

Oh my gosh I am so sorry. Somehow, through weird page navigation, going back and forth, I left this on your lovely pixel work and it was meant for a photo! I am so so sorry!

However, I would like to say that this is so amazing! I don't understand how people do pixel work, especially work as detailed as this. Really beautiful.

I hate allergies. They are fine now, until I go to the office where I work. I actually start sneezing and getting snotty when I walk inside. Really annoying. I'm allergice to work, I guess!

Aside from personal anecdote, I'd like to tell you that this is a really neat photo! I like the way you have labelled everything. Modern day apothecary. Very cool

there are tons of cheats people dont use in MSP because they underestimate the simplicity of the program

Something as simple as its thumbnail is my big deal, In PSP the thumbnail is resized so antialiasing comes on and I cant see what Im doing close up and far at the same time. So MSP ends up the better proggie,

Silly things, I recently gave a few friends a cheat sheet for detail shadeing, May supply it here sometime....

I have great envy for anyone who can manipulate pixels to do their bidding and especially with complicated ornate, imaginative and fantastic ideas such as this.
I love this idea, it's wonderfuly poetic, as well as being a tear, it could be a cocoon or even the womb...
You have great talent and this deservs the DD and my fave - well done, keep up the brilliant work.
