You guessed it right, this pixel art is inspired by the famous van Gogh painting Starry Night. It was a debate whether to depict the galaxy theme using pretty much the outer space or take it from an earthling perspective. I chose the former because I don't want to work with endless speckles on a blue canvas 😅... I want to see some familiar detail like distant trees.
I am using dotpict app to create this contest entry for Pixel art contest 5 by @kristyglas. I think I used 64x64 canvas 🤔
I don't have a reference photo other than the thought of the van Gogh painting. It is looking like a cross stitch pattern here as I divide the sky with differing hues of blue. Dotpict app is limited with color palettes and I am using what is free to use.
On a closer look I am loving the little tiles as I try my hands to use the dithering technique on this area of the canvas
I'm quite happy to see the canvas filled
The work has just started. I had to focus on the little space dust details and was not able to save a process photo for that. It is the clean up and trying what could work that consumed much of my time.
