Solitary Confinement by CTxCB Solitary Confinement by CTxCB
This is my first attempt at pixel art. Originally 30x30 px, scaled up to 690x690px, all done in GIMP. Multiple layers were used and then merged together when finished. 1px Pencil was used for all of the art, and 5px smudge tool was used to create lighting. This is pixel art of a monster in Solitary Confinement, trapped behind a wood barred and bolted iron door (with reinforced Iron Padlocks), in a room with a brick wall, blood & bone covered floor, one unlit & burned-out torch, a lit torch and claw scratch marks everywhere. What do you think?

I love this! Like, I can't do pixel art very well and I have to say I love the lighting on the right side of the door! I'd think that it would be AMAZING if you would make a second piece with a picture of the inside with the beast. I would have to say I didn't like the torch fire much, as to say it looks flat with only one color incorporated. Say, if you added some oranges and maybe a similar tint of red it would make it flow a bit more. As for the lighting, I feel like you could add some more contrast to it to make the shadows more visible.
What do you think?

Being the one in Skype watching you make this, I was impressed with the way you skillfully used GIMP to create this. Had you not told me that this was your first attempt at pixel art, I'd have thought you did this professionally.
The colours used are all used in harmony to create an eeire and isolated effect that can be clearly felt.
The blood and bones on the floor really add to the feeling, as well as the white eyes hiding behind the door.
Personally, I would recommend you do more of these, and maybe even encourage others to do this.

Chris, did you actually have Minecraft torches in mind whilst making this? Also, do you wanna make a city on your server? I have everything planned out. :D

I didn't have minecraft torches on my mind really. I had the "Cave Torches" on my mind, the ones which you often see in caves which has a piece of wood topped with gasoline placed inside a steel candle holder.
