Nah, the pale outlines are because of extreme JPG compression. Which is what I don't like about these. It's a fancy idea, but with these small, undetailed, super-compressed photos, you might as well just convert the whole thing into pixel art and try your best to replicate the realism by hand. That'd be a bit of a challenge, too.

If you're not fond of that idea, I suggest you use a more interesting base photo. Like... people in a park. Try to pixel a character so it looks like it's sitting next to real-life people or something. That'd be more fun to look at.


Ah well, as long as you enjoy it. I'm just saying, I don't see much of a point in showing it off.

A good amount of people in this thread said that they enjoyed these pieces. That's point enough, I think.


These are cool. The first one especially. Very mellow and weird ... I like it. I used to do this sorta thing all the time, but never really attempted to make the pixels match the picture in anyway.
DO MORE K KTHX.

Hey very much like the first one!
And Rox: I feel that the jpeg high compression and resulting loss and artifacts are very interesting when used in such a small pic (nice contrast to the 100% accurate pixel elements).
I'd go even further and compress it higher (and after that add the pixel elements and than save it all in a lossless format to preserve the pixel part). Nice and quite conceptual (or heading strait that way)...

@Helm: I think the demosceners did a fine job of exactly copying thier references in pixels

I don't see how this has to do with anything.

IMO i think these are great.  Quite artistsic.  Pixel creatures lost in "the real world" could have a lot of philosophical meaning.  As far as the pixel skills go, they are great, though I'd lose the white around the bear in the latter.

I like this concept. messes with your mind.

I think the white is there because the tree branches also have a similar light border.

The white just needs to AA better to the ... unit that is sitting on the branch.
