Amidst the Storm by gfball84887 Amidst the Storm by gfball84887
Commission piece.

My first gameboy pixel painting. It is of link in the storm that sends him to the island before the actual game begins.

-20x20

-Pixels are about a 6th of and inch and thus my smallest pixel size ever used. I could have used a 16x20 but I like the bars at the top and bottom for effect. Not including the bars there are 16,500 pixels.

-About 35 hours. It took surprisingly long.

It's fantastic work. I've been attempting to do this and it's so difficult concentrating on all the squares, getting the count right and just painting them neatly.

Can I ask, what is your process? Do you draw a grid on the canvas first then fill in the squares? That is the way I've been doing it thus far.

Surprise, surprise! The "Letterbox" effect is very nice! I found it to be very effective in my Gun-Nac painting.

Its a painting. I had the grid the canvas out and mark each spot for each color. I then had to paint over the grid with at least two coats of paint. A great deal of which was done with a 1/6th or so inch brush.
