Old Master Remastered Challenge

on: September 20, 2006, 08:12:36 pm

Small update on the rules. See below



Hello fellow pixelationers!

Now this is no new idea and isn't so much of a challenge, but more of a warming up activity to go along with our new looks and old name. The deal is as simple as that, pick a piece of an old Master and reinterpret it in Pixel Art. There aren't many restrictions on this one, stay below 160x160 pixels and 32 colors. Try to not copy it, but give it a new twist, make use of the whole new context and palette Pixel Art offers, go wild. All your base are belong to Mona Lisa or let Dante and Virgil canoodle in isometric Hell or maybe they just want to take it out Street Fighter style.


Here's a nice example piece by Nevanda (not made within the restrictions)
The last Supper, Tactics Ogre style





Recreate an old master painting
max. size: 160x160 pixels
max. colors: 32

Additional rule:
You can also stick to known system restrictions (ie. c64, zx spectrum, etc.) instead of the 160x160 32 color limit.

Have fun!

I'll be entering later tonight or tomorrow. Just wanted to say, please remember to post link to original piece so we don't have to go looking for it. Unless of course we're talking something so extremely well-known as what follows.

And to sort of destroy sanity before we even start, here's an non-entry by the great Lazur, not in proper res of color depth, but just so we know we cannot reach for the stars and just put them in our hands  ;)

Lol, Lazur always goes sooooo overboard with his skin tones.

I'm going to look through my Rembrandt book to see if I can find anything worth pixeling...

Ive started mine, but im going to wait till its done to show.

"The School of Athens" replacing raphael's portraits of renaissance masters with portraits of pixel-artists here and on pixeljoint that i like or admire.  some of them, like Stoven, Stitchy, Ahruon, BTG, jalonso, and indigo have pretty obvious mascots, but if ptoing, helm, and miascugh, and flaber could tell me how they would like to be represented (or if they would like NOT to be represented) that would be helpfull

anyone else who would like to be represented should tell me as well.  as the list stands:

self portrait - epicurus - how do people think i should represent myself? perhaps just regular old me?
ptoing - aristotle
stoven - plato
jalonso - diogenes
miascugh - euclid
helm - hericlitus
indigo - theophrastus
ryumaru - background figure in deep brown near relief
wolverine - the background fiure to his left
BTG - aristippus
Ahruon - foreground figure leaning over near Euclid
stichy - foreground figure looking up near Euclid
flaber - figure beside Plato

Adarias, an obvious one for me would be Ampelkopf http://ptoing.net/images/pixel/4.png

Dunno how many of the newer people know him, i did not draw him that often (I should again), but I really like him and i had a small animated avatar of him for ages when I first joined pix. Memories....

I am tall and slim and have long hair, Adarias. Remember the Yellow Sign picture? That was me. If I were to be a greek philosopher, I'd be Anaximandros, but we don't know what he looked like. But Heraclitus is a good second, father of epistemological despondency. We can never know nothing.

This is my entry. 16 colors. Named 'Giantes' which is greek for 'Wishbone'. Drawn by old master N. Gizhs. This piece has had a profound influence on me since I first saw it, about oh, 13 years ago? I have had an enduring love for it, her, since.



original



Of course, it's not good enough. I'll try again when I am stronger.

Im thinking probably the best bet for me would just be using my gaytor. My avator..
I really dont have a distinct character - other than him because i generally like to make a different character everytime.
My only distinct thing is eyes..

but ya. go for the gaytor

evil-ville: That's very nice, you've been developing a nice style recently. The blue you used to aa on the left outline doesn't work, and the top of the head was left un-aa-ed.

Helm: Wow both those are beautiful. Good enough or not, lovely work, she's got her own character. Very convincing values, and that with such neon colors.

Hey Adarias, that's a nice idea, I'd love to be in it. I don't really have a personal character, but here's a humanoid avatar that's served me well for quite some time http://miascugh.ptoing.net/pixels/avaold.gif

OLD > NEW


Kon: I tried to address that, as well as the shadows below the eyes being too strong (as Ptoing told me in msn), both width and height of face rearranged slightly. The lips, just a tad... I think the likeness is better. I am very much in love with this image (not my own, the original) still I find, and looking at it for too many hours absorbs my strength and translates it into uneasy longing. Therefore I think I am done with it for now, barring major critiquage.

hmm....yeah, the brow portion has definately been pulled skywards, and the distance from eyebrow to hair/scarf shortened, which increases the elongated feeling.  it doesnt bother me though......i think what sticks out to me is the face that the nose seems slightly broken, facing more towards the viewer than the rest of the face, and to ammend that her right our left nostril could be pulled over i think, and the shadow above it extended in the same direction

also i notice you thinned her face, and its nice, but that (combined with the lips and eyelids) also makes it look too much like an previous aquaintence of mine for me to actually like looking at it all that much.. doesnt have anything to do with the artwork hough which looks great

portions struck out that no longer apply to the update, didnt see that before i posted

So just the nose crit still valid? The nosetril seems even more tilted in the original than in my version, I'm not sure what's there to fix. Edit, perhaps?

Try looking at the whole eyes - nose region, I find it to be pretty unaccurate. Combined with the wrong shape of jawline this kinda pulls her face into a weird shape

OLD->NEW


Look closely at my edit, I tweaked mainly the jawline and the entire right side of the face. Mainly the right eye is important in my edit.

Stuff like the left eye and the mouth changed a little

there are some pieces that people love to edit.  congratulations on making another one of them ^^

your nose -----> altered


i tried to make it more to how i saw the original, pushing the shadow between the eye and the nose out on both sides so that that plane would appear to be closer to perpendicular to the viewer.  also adjusted the shape of the lower nose, pulling it left a bit and tweeking shapes to visually match the original.  tried to keep it in your style too, though i dont know how i did.  anyhoo, take it or leave it, my eyes, though fine for colors, are not the best at seeing shapes and proportions and i could be way off on this edit

I keep saying I'm done... I'm not.

OLDER - NEWER


Color tweaks (probably finalized palette now), eye and jaw edit as per Gil. Numerous small AA tweaks and color meshings. Didn't find the nose to need significant altering after all, and I think the jaw edit in Kon's reply alters the likeness more than it helps it. If I've learnt one thing is that when you copy something, you do some real measurement instead of eyeballing everything. Sorry if I seem reluctant to incooporate critique but this I'm kinda choosy on this one. But thank you all for the critique and edits! I hope I haven't derailed this thread too much.

Mine's nothing special, just a basic pixel art version of The Son of Man by surreal artist René Magritte. I'm not game enough to try anything experimental just yet, this is the first completed piece of pixel art I've done in a number of years. So just a cartoony, simply piece to start off with.
Hope you like it.

Helm, the colours are really eye catching on that piece, i like how you've taken them in the other direction (purple). I think there's a problem with showing her face in the correct perspective, her chin being up a little (in my eyes at least). But it does look awesome at the moment.

It would be a fun thing to do, but i'm not sure if i'll actually go through with making something.

Damn another masterpiece in the making there helm. I noticed some few stuff that bothered me and made a fast tweaking. 



I adjusted 2 pixels on the headcloth part, darken the left eyebrows, pushed the cloth/hair.
I also placed 1 pixel highlight on her left nostril. I hope this helps :)

Fun stuff

The pic is based on one of my favorite naturalist pictures, Sick Girl (Syk Pike) by Christian Krohg. I remember the first time I saw it I thought it was a photograph. Fantastic piece of art that has really inspired me. It would be a great trial just to reconstruct it, but that's not what the challenge was about so I mixed her with a shot of Morpheus in his usuall chairsitting fashion.  :D Don't know why. 25 colours.



"Take the blue pill, and you will be sedated. Take the red pill, and you might not get what I've just given you."

Originals:



The picture I found of the girl might be tilted somewhat. Didn't notice before I was allmost finished, but I can't be sure if it is.
The colours are made slightly more yellow mo match the Matrix colours.

Ugh... I had to pillowshade a lot. I guess it's allright if you are making pillows... but I feel like I need to wash myself...

Adarias: Would be fun to be in your allstar group. Can't think of a mascot at the moment, but I'm just checking first.

Crits will be made another time.

Well, to get down into the nitty gritty, the skin tones aren't there yet, seems a red shift + slightly more saturation would do the trick

The Birth of Chun Li


 28 colors

After Botticelli's Birth of Venus. I only picked that one because it was the first thing i found on my harddrive :)
I abandoned Street Fighter style at some point, but you can still see my failed attempt at nice selout. Ptoing helped me with a nice edit some time in the middle of process, with a couple of tweaks for Chun. He also pointed out a number of times that the head was kind of off, but i couldn't get it to look any better than it is now.
What do you mean, "overdithered"? :P

edit: oh yeah, i used this as a reference for Chun Li

Can you put her arms in different positions  please  :P



 :D

Anywhoo. Excellent work Miascugh. Personally, I want you to keep that dithering. It gives it an old painting feel much like when you use oil-paint on a hard-texture canvas. Not much of a crit at the moment. Her right (our right) foot is slightly tilted which makes me think that she's balancing on it's side rather then on the whole sole.

Hmm... Chun's leg muscles has always intrigued me. Gives her character though.

I actually laughed outloud to this... my parents must think i'm going crazy sitting up here laughing to myself  :crazy:

I don't really have a problem with the dither.  It's not too noticeable on my screen and it gives the background a nice effect.

It's not supposed to be a copy, and if the breast is 15% more covered than in the original, who cares. I mean, think withing reason, I already made the hand as small as i could without having it be an antialiased mess, with 1 pixel wide fingers and it's still quite big (and that's how Street Fighter handles it too), covering two thirds of her chest. What bothers me more, is that I accidentally altered her stance, twisting the whole torso a bit counterclockwise, making her off-balance in combination with her extravagant thighs. Agreed on the eyes, i already had them somewhat more centered, before. Refresh to see if it's any better now.

edit: Snake: haha, catmouth would have been suited better maybe for the lower censorstrip. Thanks, I'll see what i can do about the foot.

edit2: Changed the foot, not sure if it helped.

HERE BE CRITIQUE

first of all, I'm glad to see this thread take off in a good way after I sorta monopolyzed the critiquage. Sorry again.

Evil-ville: the piece is not finished, but I enjoy how your style meshes with the phobist lots-of-lines rendering of the original. More critique when it's more finalized. Which means: please finish!

Helm: use a palette that doesn't belong in a meatshop, you fag

goosemonger: the piece is mostly solid besides in my opinion the odd dithering on the suit. But why not do it in the full size so you can see how it is to try to emulate oils with pixels like miascugh did with the soft dithers and lots of colors? It's a nice trick.

Elk: This is heading the right way. Why not just crop and finish so you can say you finished your entry? Nice dithering and pretty good tone and detail.

Snake: awesomely true to the concept of the remastering process. There are some places you are missing AA, like where the dress meets the chair in the lower section of the image, an odd 2-pixel contour as well. Generally, the colors are great, but this would benefit from another pass of aaing, I think.

ptoing: talk about made-for-zx. Very good. Perhaps c64 hi-res version just to once again prove the superiority of the commie?

mia: I have to tell you that picture is so odd in my eyes and makes me feel very weird. To see a capcom anatomy sprite in such a context really hurts that part of my brain that makes sense of things. Selout looks all the more wrong and hilarious in that context too. Of course the technical execution is top-notch, a very enjoyable entry. God, I hate selout.

God, I hate selout.

when badly done its the ugliest thing, but it does serve a purpose when done properly (capcom is NOT an example of doing it properly).  when you do linear drawings on paper though, surely you vary the lineweight?  why then should not game art vary they lineweight as well by using dark heay lines in recesses, and light soft lines on the bulges?  we're talking practical applications of renaissance technique alive in pixelart, and i dont know about you, but i think thats a good thing

OT: What you describe doesn't fall under the name 'selout', for me. What I refer to when I talk of selout, is the specific capcom technique named and popularized in the internet scene by blumonkey and Tsugumo back 5 years ago or so. As I've told you before, I see no need to confuse one thing (general applications of variable line width) with another (pixel-art specific term named selout), as such confusion serves no purpose that I can think of. Of course I believe your examples of renaissance line weight, as posted before, are wonderful and to be applied in pixel art. I use similar techniques in every piece I do, but that is not selout in my opinion.

How don't know if you consider John Siger Sargent an old master, so I figured I should ask before I get to the boring part of the picture (the hair, I mean)...This is where I've gotten so far:



The original image is a simple black and white scketch, but I intend to take it a step further and give it some colour. Right now I'm only blocking the basics and trying to get the values right...
I don't remember where I got the reference from but I'll post later :y:

personally, i wouldnt even consider him a Master, as he is apparently incapable of refining a piece beyond being a truely wonderful sketch or study, but my opinion has no bearing on the challenge rules, and mia said earlier that anyone who "plays a mentionable role in art history is fine" and sargent certainly fits that bill

Holy crapcakes larwick, this is what I live for. Dali makes my heart melt, PLEASE animate this.

I might do Meditative Rose or Les Elephants by Dali I think. I just bought posters of both so I have a good point of reference. In any case, I'll see what I can do, since I'm on a laptop and I don't know how well that will work out for colouring. Might Have to buy a mouse or soemthing today.

For the sake of trying to be productive again, I've made an attempt at this, still a WIP though. It's taking forever since I'm not used to realistic detail. Dali's my absolute idol though, and I had to give it a try, not to mention I just bought a poster of this:

It is coming nicely, but I think Dali's nose was a bit longer and thinner. And yeah the eyes look a bit too round, so the resemblance is a bit distant atm.
But yeah keep it up

Good flavour choice. A few crits.

I would really reccommend that you change the lighting from being dead front to something a little to the side. It gives the impression of a copy/paste job at the moment. Also, the black outlines on the lid don't look right. There is a lot of variation of black and white on metal, but the black hues should shift to lighter ones rather than keep a constant line.

Judging from your base, were you aiming at this first shading? Or something more realistic?



With all the Dali pictures going around, I just remembered I saw this at his museum this summer:



Maybe something to do if one is feeling lazy. :D (unless of course you want to do the full scale version)

Looks really nice, I like what you did with the colouorchanges and the "scanline blocks".

Your grid is off tho, when you shift the whole pixture to the left by one pixel it's ok and you only have 2 errors in the rightmost column. At, there are errors all over the place :B

And as I was almost finished with the lines I checked in on the topic to read the rules again and I realized that I'd missed/forgotten the part about the size restriction :'( ...so I had to rezise the whole thing, and now I think I can start AAing and adding more details and shadows (with the colours in the corner there). What do you think?



I think I liked it better bigger though :(

top nudge stuff in this thread, great challenge too

i started doing the van gogh too. Seeing it as a kid, i always pictured the big design in the front as an evil castle sorta thing, so i thought i'd give that interpretation a go.
after giving the sky a number of unsuccesfull tries, im giving up but might as well post what i've got:

 :y: Sexy work Vedsten. I really want to finish mine, but your's so sooo cool  :'( PLZ FINISH :lol:
I didn't get much done too, amidst all the Homecoming madness, piles of homework from insane teachers, and this music tracking compo with a tight deadline. Sowrry, I'll update later, but I basically wanted to say that Vedsten's Van Gogh interpretation looks SUPERAWESOME  :D

all of these look great so far!

vedsten, i like your cypress, though i dont know if it really captures the feeling of the original piece, or of the pixel-twist?  perhaps if you turned it into something like a mario castle it would work better :P

@adarias - eh, might've misundstood the rules, thought a re-interpretation of a masterpiece in pixels where enough, if it isn't, this update ain't gonna help. A mario castle would be kewl tho  :y:

@CAG - thanks, here you go:



im not a 100% satisfied, the colors are kinda boring (not to mention there're too many), the contrast is BLEHH and the shading style's somewhat inconsistant, never the less, i learned a lot doing it, so i can leave it be w. good conscience.

It's beautiful, Vedsten! I know for seasoned artists the techniques can be old hat, but I think this is a well composed piece. Great lighting on the swirling ether around the star and the terrain is also well lit.


I chose Peter Paul Rubens as the master I would remaster. In particular, his Hippopotamus Hunt:

Original:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Peter_Paul_Rubens_083.jpg

My entry:


It's probably 29 colors. I started with a mostly preselected palette, but added as I felt necessary. My goal was to liven up the color of the work, starting with the hippo itself. I stopped short of going all-out with a korean-esque watercolor rainbow and found a great compromise that allowed me to maintain some of the richness in the flesh tones. I didn't focus on accuracy to the extent of perfectly matching the correlating figures, so you might notice a few inconsistencies... I have some WIP shots I might post later. Think it's done, so crit if you want.

Gorgeous Pep! Gorgeous!

Even though the purple kills my eyes, the palette is very well chosen. It just.. emulates the effect of paint. I'd love to see this in a seperate thread with the WIPs. Put in treasure chest!

@Pep: That's officially my favourite piece of pixel art. Love it to death. And only 29 colors. :y: You've inspired me.
@Vedsten: That looks really cool. Really like how the sky looks, as well as the dithering on the mountain. Not really digging the AA on the moon, though. :-X

That's a great interpretation Panda. I love the fresh colors, makes the piece really breathe. My only crit would be her chin. I feel that it should be just a slight bit higher, as in the original. But then again, this is an interpretation :)

why not a tree-shape of invaders? And a background, sunset, all done in this style. You can take the concept a tad further

edit: ignore straight-pixel tree-stump, do it all with invaders of various sizes!

@ Helm: Haha, I guess I could try to expand the concept, but right now I got other things I want to work on (gotta try to use my inspiration juices, now that they are flowing after recovering from a cold), but I'll experiment around some time soon. But thanks for the idea and the comments.

@Toby: Thanks, and yeah I'm aware the shape of the face is different, and so is the expression, slightly. I'll come back to it once I have fresh eyes (towards that picture).

Started mine yesterday, s'taking forever, so I thought posting a wip would pressure me to deliver the goods sooner.


Sure alot of you have seen the piece, Nightmare, Henry Fuseli, one of my all-time favorite dudes.

Original
http://monsoonpoint.typepad.com/monsoonpoint/images/fuseli_nightmare.jpg

Right now i'm still toying around with pretty much everything, not in the most efficent way possible, but enjoying myself nonetheless. When this is through I'll definately be taking some artistic liberties with my version that'll seperate it from the original.
