I am a naughty naughty, slacker.

I am terribly sorry atnas, but I'm going to leave prism/pikpixelart dissapointed =/ perhaps it's best you just forward him this pm? =/

I had a grandiose idea of mixing the styles of 3 separate painters whom match the aesthetic refferences he gave and making a really cool piece that was somewhere inbetween, but I only got as far as color reducing two of their paintings and then a very rough picture that barely tests the color reduced palletes.

peng kang long color reduction

Serge Mashernikov color reduction

and my testing of the peng kang long pallete....

Even in its early stage, there's a lot interesting going on in your gift, Conz. The color ramps and circular compositions are really interesting, so thank you lots for the work you did :y:
All in all, it's abstracted pretty interestingly, and in a way I don't see done often, even in its simplicity. Merry Christmas to you, to Ambi, to all.

And really Conz, don't worry about missing Christmas day - I think you tackled an ambitious, cool concept that probably would need the greater time, regardless. The PM attached to the piece is thoughtful, and I understand. If you end up fleshing it out, I bet it'll be wonderful.

Title: Re: Secret Santa 2016
Post by: 0xDB on December 25, 2016, 07:48:58 am
Loving it ilkke! I hope I'm not missing anything from interpreting it in terms of the eight virtues:

I think I clearly see "Sacrifice is Courage to give oneself in name of Love" in the form of the little hatch opening in the armor and the arrow striking the heart. Then I think there is also "Compassion is Love of others" since the bird is allowed to rest on the hilt of the sword. The overall posture appears to stand for "Valor, Pure Courage, standing up against risks" (also supported by the risk to get shot in the heart again, making the hatch serve another purpose).

Oh and the colors... haha, ok, should have looked at them first, they seem all tailored to support the symbolism for each virtue being depicted and the palette appears to be composed entirely of colors from that virtue system. For example the main chunk of white(the color for Spirituality) in the center and some smaller chunks of it elsewhere, fits perfect for "Spirituality is to seek Truth, Love and Courage from one's own self and the world around" and yellow being the color for Compassion supports the observation about the bird, orange the Sacrifice.

Really weird and disturbing pic, 32. I really like it.

Tomic: Glad you like it, I will probably tweak it a bit more in the coming weeks before it goes up on PJ as well as finalise the video with the final version steps and add some music.

Great work everyone. Merry Christmas and all that jazz :)

I'm late to the party again, but I'm in a rare xmas mood to do some pixelart.
Are there any gift-less people left, so I can make a surrogate gift for them ?

@MysteryMeat - Checking the presents, I'm glad I'm not the only one thru the years who likes bad things to happen to St.Nicolas ;]
Title: Re: Secret Santa 2016
Post by: Atnas on December 25, 2016, 05:59:00 pm
Sure! Everyone has a gift, but feel free to go through and see if maybe someone got a smaller present you want to add to, or just check out the signup thread in the archived activity forum, and find someone's list of likes that appeals to you.

Glad you like it MysteryMeat! :D I'm not so good at doing "weird horror stuff", so I tried to fool around with Santa's expectations :)

Thanks a lot for the gift skamocore! :D Love the cute ribbon!

Really nice to see all these for Christmas! Will surely participate next year too :)

Merry Christmas everbody!

This is absolutly crazy. I don't want to miss any Secret Santa from now on.

Thanks a lot Mastak_A. I really love my present. But that's no wonder, how to not love a polka dancing christmas whale? (Or is it a sleeping cap?) I'm going to use it as my avatar since I didn't have one. :)

Thank you everyone for all this great art. Please don't stop being amazing.

Thanks SolidM for the beautiful Mountain, really dig the colors :)

To Wolfenoctis: I'm glad you like it, wasn't sure about the gorgo theme. The piece itself was intended to be bigger, maybe I will continue working on it.
To 32: Much appreciated!

Really nice pixels all and Merry Christmas everyone!

You're welcome, glad you like it! Yeah, she's an OC I made up on the spot. I tried to incorporate elements of Battle Angel Alita, Darkstalkers and fire haha.

And thank you so much CFKaligula! It's pretty much everything I could hope for, from the witch to the cute capybara/rabbit hybrid! I would play that game :D

Wow, great stuff this year guys. Always a pleasure to participate in such an inspiring activity.

Yaomon, thank you so much! It's awesome. Love the mood and the dark, somber aesthetic. And Finlal, thanks for the gift too! It's great as well-- love the setting! ;D

Mandrill, I'm glad you enjoyed my gift! I want to spruce it up a little more before I call it completely finished if that's alright with you! I would love to see it printed out!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

Aaaah, Prism that dragon is awesome! :o and such amazingly realistic clouds and fire effect, nice job. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas to you as well~ ^^

Sorry I didn't finish your piece, Pika! *lame ass excuses about time, but really i'm just bad at time management* I will finish it at some point though, don't you worry! I love working on it and eventually I'll do it justice.

As always thanks to the awesome, Atnas, for organising this, and big up to everyone who took part. ^^

Well, I don't expect to be forgiven by SantAtnas, but Mathcong, I hope you like it! Sorry for the delay :(

welp, I thought since the season is over and all I should post some progress
(https://conzeit.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/pikpikpixmas01.png)
I feel like it's going somewhere now :p still work to be done

no real idea what any of it is aside from the woman XD. I may speficy it later, I want it to be conceptually intriguing. dont expect the rendering of my references though, they were just sources of inspiration for composition and general color/atmosphere

if any of it looks like anything and you like that, or FEELS like it should be about something, please tell me, might help me nail down the concept :p it's weird how long I'm taking with this (can almost feel Ptoing disapproving :p) but I hadnt been this ambitious with a landscape ever so I guess it was to be expected.

I had held from posting because I felt bad about my WIP, but thank you darchangel! heh, fun little spin on what I asked :p  santa looks like he doesnt really approve of what he's reading...maybe twas too much a night for him? :p

oh and everyone's stuff is really awesome this time around  :D these guys specially appealed to my specific taste tho

I just love how I dont even know what yao's is. I guess I inherently love the unknowable. would it be insufferably cagey to just put "the unknowable" as my likes next year? XD

Whatever the wait happens to be, the sheer quality of this gift makes it totally worth it! Conz, you are the man. Conceptually, that piece is really shaping up, and I'd say the tone is perfect. Now I see where you were going in the first place, aha.

I agree that I'm getting somewhere on the tone, but I'm ambivalent about this purposedfully not polished style I'm going for...I'm kind of stuck on the concept part, specially as to wtf is going on in the bottom part....so I cut it. That, compounded with the fact that I'm starting to have obligations which are taking me away from the piece, means I'm going to post this as the final piece. if I get an eureka moment about what to do with the bottom part, some kind of satisfying story, I'll come back to it, but for now here is where I stop.
https://conzeit.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/pikpikpixmas04.png in the interest of full disclosure this is the full thing.

each separate part is the proportions of a landscape screen, so you might wallpaper it if you want =) (though doing that make me irk at my unfinished "style" :p)
