Pixel Cherries by Cyangmou Pixel Cherries by Cyangmou
Another fully rendered photostudy practice (back from February)
This time I tried to work on a much smaller scale compared to my apple and used a layered style instead of dither. The most challenging part was to fake the texture and the reflections.

32 colors

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-04-16
Pixel Cherries by *Cyangmou is perhaps one of the most intricate and convincing photo-realistic studies done in pixel art that I've ever seen. Enjoy their shiny freshness in only 32 colours. ( Suggested by mintyy and Featured by ClefairyKid )

LOL I really thought it was a cut out from a photograph and I was just thinking "Why is this a Daily Deviation" and then I clicked and realized it was pixel art! :XD: You're extremely talented. :clap: =D This is so impressive!~

I seriously applaud your skill. I can't even imagine, but it must have taken a long time to pixel that.

no it don't took really long to do this because it's a relatively simple subject. It takes by far longer and a lot of practice to reach the point where you can do something like this.

I thought this was a picture of a couple of cherries but a realistic pixel art that only contains 32 colors?
That's very impressive. :D :clap:

That is possibly the most realistic shading I've ever seen on any pixel art. Did you actually examine your reference zoomed in at a pixelated level?

Cyangmou Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Of course I looked closely to the reference, but it's not a blatant copy of the pixels of the photo. I tried to search ways how to achieve a similar feeling like the photo reference has with pixel related techniques. Zoom in both and examine the difference.
