One Pixel Artwork


Was planning to throw together something bigger for today, for this grand fifth anniversary (didn't realize it was as much until today) of these here great Pixel Day festivities, but alas, time is not enough! So just this one small pixel art piece will have to do. It's not just about the size is it?

Instead of the traditional 8 or 16 bit colors I thought I'd also take a somewhat more minimalistic approach, with a 1 bit palette to match. You might notice the edges come across sharper this way, providing a crisp finish entirely without distracting contrasts or unwanted artifacts. You could say it's the purest palette possible. I call it... Clockwork Orange.

Happy Pixel Day y'all.

It certainly seems to me a better artwork than a banana pricked on a wall with tape.

Cyberdevil responds:

A banana pricked on a wall with tape hmm... ideas!

So... orange it’s... beautiful

Cyberdevil responds:

It... really is!

Gets me right in the soul! The orange is so... orange. It's really fuckin orange, dude. Whoa. Orange. So final and so jolly in a way that is beyond time and space. Tantalizing because it beckons but you cannot answer.


Cyberdevil responds:

Orange you the thinker today! Some things you just cannot question... and that which has no question has no answer. It's like something a man with a metal detector dug up. A profound.


Cyberdevil responds:


Just looking at this, it needs the Frontpage, the Review Crew Pick, the Daily Feature, the Weekly Users’ Choice, anything!

The detail is amazing, the background was amazing, the colors were legendary, the art was just... fantastic!

I can’t believe it. You draw better than Picasso. (I know he paints but they’re basically the same thing) That’s why this is special. That’s why it needs on the Hall of Fame. It needs more fame. It’s that good.

Officially the best art I’ve ever seen. Anywhere, anytime.


Cyberdevil responds:

Picasso had some similarly unconventional themes too hmm... alas he didn't live to see his art properly recognized, but look at it now! Nourishing the blank wallpapers of fine abodes and spectator gatherings all over our wide 3d circle. I hope and believe this will see the light of recognition quicker... our lives are short and inexplicable after all. A page front is all I ask.

Thank you for the noble words and recognition -str-
