Rendezvous by ryan-gfx Rendezvous by ryan-gfx
Sorry for being so absent the couple of well.. 9 months. But I promised I'd make it up to you. How you say? Well to start, this is Rendezvous. The hotel/cafe/hangout with virtually anything you'd ever want. A tad cluttered... I know... but I just wanted to make up for the lost time.

This is for Pixeldam. yeah... It's going to go in Sunny Heights, but not just yet. I'm probably going to add onto it a little bit more before I submit the final one to Pixeldam.

The two objects that took the longest were the billboard, and the car (big surprize) I made the car from scratch, actually... no references were used (does it show) And the girl on the billboard had no references used either. That's why her face looks so messed up :P

I think it's like about 240 something colors, I really had a hard time staying on the palette. took about 4 weeks total. But I did the bulk of it in the last week. so yeah... feel free to comment, give me hard ass CC, whatever :nod:

oh CRAP! I totally forgot shadows. I'll do them tomorrow, kay? :D

hey man,

this is really good stuff, it looks like the sort of 'in style' isometric pixel work thats sweeping the internet look while adding a bit more dimension than the norm. I mean the brickwork on the ground and building just kindof give it the subtle enough feel for detail without detracting from the cute style. Not to mention the sign... thats just funny (and well pixelled!)
nerdyglam Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2005
I want to stay here. Please. :)
yoboseiyo Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2005

My jaw drops every time I look at pixel art. I'm clueless of this kind of art and wanted to ask. Do you create this whole image by adding one minuscule square pixel next to the other? It must be painstaking! I like this so much! The image is packed! Such incredible detail! The part I like most (apart from every little scene taking place here) is the nice touch of adding glass on the roof. Great work! :clap:

It's been so long since I really sat down and got into a pixel art project, but this piece is exactly what I needed to get my motivation back into it. It's nearly perfect, even though you were quick to be your own critic. Sure, the girl's face isn't perfect and the car has some minor issues, but on the whole this could be the best work of pixel art I've seen all year.

First of all, your billboard is fine. I think the girl's hair could use a bit of a touch-up (seems to part like a skunk in the middle) and her face (particularly the nose) isn't great, but it's better than average. The car is a nice touch too. For not going with a reference photo, you did a fantastic job. It reminds me of a Lamborghini or a Ferarri, but with a more futuristic look. That back wheel needs a relook though.

As far as the rest goes, what could I possibly say? Your skills with the details makes this everything a pixel art piece should be and more. I love the subtle highlights that give depth and the tiniest bit of work that makes the walls look real, the windows look like glass and the plants look alive. I couldn't ask for much more!

PS. :+fav: as well. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the detailed comment :) :hug: And thanks for the fave :D Much appreciated :heart:

Ah another nice addition to pixeldam! It looks incredible, I dig the architecture. I also like how you made the people a little different than the usual pixeldam people. The car looks futuristic, aswell as the elevator shaft, together with the old building style it makes up for a nice mix. The only thing that I don't like about this piece is the big blue entrance for the parking garage. It contrasts too much with the rest of the piece and it feels as if it doesn't belong there with the rest of the building. Something that you may want to improve is the roof, which looks kinda flat and simple compared to the rest, because it has no texture.

My favourite part of this piece is the great texturing and coloring done on the floors, walls and collums. It really shows your effort.

Forgot about the shadows eh? That sounds familiar ;) Overall an amazing piece, you definetely deserved the DD feature for this! :+fav:

This is awesome? Where have guys been when the made games for MegaDrive and SNES?
June18th Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005
*scrolls up*

Very brilliant architecture. I wish I was as good as you with text and fonts, nice job with that. I'm loving the variety in all of the object and how it all somehow blends together.

The parking garage entrace is well done and I do like it (I really do) but at the same time it draws too much attention to itself, whereas the piece around it is what's intresting. But then again it's blue bulky-ness just puts more emphasis on how brilliant the rest of it is.

The car was extremelly well done, especially without the use of a refrance picture. I love how the texture on the sidewalk fades from one to another.

The anatomy of the chick doesn't seem correct.

But I looove it, the variety, the clutteredness, all the action going on. Well done.

muddy-knees Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2005
WOW..... So much detail.... i agree, it reminds me of habbo hotel. I love the detail on the pavement, and the car. I like it how the roof is so shiny and everything sort of fits together. Good job!! :clap:

A gorgeous job you did there! Especially with the car! No wonder you got a DD.
Just one qestion: Was the light reflection change on the glass roof with intention? The last on the left has a reflection from top left to bottom right, but the ones that came before shien from top right to bottom left. Or am I just to critique again?
