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! ( Suggested by ShinobiDragon and Featured by halfliquid )

Outside of all the fantastic styling, coloring, and structuring, I think what really makes this is the teardrop shape. It's so original and different from what one usually sees in, well, all artwork almost. Great job!

Surely this has to be one of the more genuine, original pixel pieces that I've seen in quite a bit of time. What a wonderful idea to create a sort of close-up of a tear and what could be in them. She really looks like she belongs there.

:thumbsup:

This one's a keeper!

Now that is quite possibly the most unique concept I have ever seen on DA! It's so stunning - all the patterns and swirls, and the woman amidst it all. So much imagination!

You truly are an inspiration to us all! ^_^

Well the anatomy is way wrong on this pic! Just look at the legs and arms!

;) just kidding

I really like the swearly lines of the hair and the rest of the pic, and how her feet melt into those lines, very creative :) good job

I know this'll sound weird.. but I like the foot...

and no, I do not have a foot fetish, thanks for asking ><

Actually, I love the flowy-ness of the foot becoming part of the over-all inner design thingie.. are they suposed to be like wings? cuz I really wanna call them wings...

I also love the hair, how it is sort of.. pulled up all swirly, but still looks both natural and like water.. I seriously can not get over how you do hair... I can't do hair like that drawing with pencil, and you do it in pixels! it's absolutely amazing!!! and truely inspireing...

Also, I just saw a hand!!! that's a hand by her face right? I keep scrolling up to look at the picture so I can comment appropriately, and I was all 'that looks like a hand.. it's a hand!!!' so cool... absolutely awesome!

and the detail in the face.. amazing... it kinda looks like she's crying too...

I love the shape.. it's tear-drop-shaped.. but the parts of the wing-like-thingies also protrude slightly... I love it when artists do stuff like that... it's just.. I dunno, something I really like I guess ^^

Sorry about the lack of detail in this comment.. I have a HUGE migrane at the moment and... it just hurts and makes it kinda hard to function... and I know I spelled that wrong... ><
