kept meaning to post or atleast improve upon this before posting, but now is a good time while I remember I guess, started on the 24th of May apparently
google image reduced:

oh god it just dawned on me it's not really a photo  ??? hope it's still okay :yell:  *"photo or image" phew

and progress on it haven't touched it in weeks



had mention on how dull the colours are shall I tweak them?  :-\

anyway it's good activity, and really dig what's been done so far in here :y: and I'll probably start another one up

Still needs a lot of work.
The photo I used for this palette was WAY too risque for Pixelation.
So lets just pretend I used a nice picture of a forest.

Very cool Grim!

I enjoy the colors as they are, but why not?
Play around with em and see what happens.
I cheated on my fish girl quite a bit.

:D

and I'll probably just leave the colours.

did another fast activity thingy, but kinda dead ended so gonna do another, palette from this image


some random craziness, in some kinda crawlspace or something

prog


actually picked the image solely for the panda then thought it'd be weird drawing a panda from a palette reduced from a panda :huh: so I'll probably reduce something else and do a panda next  ;D

btw sorry for not organizing my posts/participations much :-X might edit them when I find the motivation

Ah, I wanna join in :D. Actually I started on something on the unofficial square canvas/marine mythology theme (much) earlier but I haven't had time to polish it up much. Palette appropriated from a Wiki Commons PotD & I meant to incorporate accompanying motifs (hippocampus, trident, scales) in quite a graphic, ancient-grecian-pottery manner into the BG. Will do later, promise. Comp. based on this Klimt.

Props for resurrecting this, I can see the beginnings of a sweet dieselpunk beat 'em scene in the first of yours there, just needs moar foreground (and roundhouse kicks). I can't say that I follow your thought process in the second though (whodunnit@Mad Hatter's tea party?).

Miss Fish is cleaning up nicely. Actually each of your canvases is better than the last, all great. I do like the loose aesthetic but can't help feeling like they could be scaled down a bit without losing much and be thus easier to cluster-fy. To death :P. Do want cyan elephant to go on sexy adventures with.

nice, really dig your brand of painterly clustering  ;D and seems like you planned that, having Poseidon (or triton or neptune?) making a cameo appearance already earlier in the thread in your edit,  how utterly devious of you, or rendering a zoom in heh actually gives me thoughts of an interesting activity :D

what part of random craziness don't you understand haha :lol: I was just watching (listening) to TV (I have a HD tuner card in my PC, I rarely use it besides when I have company(who as you might suspect find me pixel'ling away boring))and this was basically the equivalent of doodling, just used the palette acquisition method and thus done in the vein of this thread, was just gonna do that portrait thingy, but thought it might be pretty boring in comparison to what's in here already :D

I see what you did there  :hehe:

and yeah

now I feel obligated to do another to put into this post  :-*

oh lord so many emotes sorry guys

*update: did one, sammich girl kinda painterly (facet) and lolita (PP) influenced to some degree :D





should probably feel bad for not refining this but it's a doodley WiPy doodle and I might finish and refine the poor anatomy eventually  :blind:

Great idea for getting a palette. Makes it random and more challenging.

Started with this



Came up with this skull robot thing.
