BoxedTown 2 by howling BoxedTown 2 by howling
Finally done. Here's the little town of Box. It's not really a box, more a tile, but for the sake of continuity we'll just call it a box.

It took me more than a year to finish it. Of course I haven't been working on it 24/7 for the past 365 days. You can clearly see from bottom to top that my style has changed. At the bottom my style zigzags it's way up into a far more realistic style. In the 1280◊960 town you will find many different buildings.

I might do a remake, but then again, I might not.

Enjoy! If I am to make a 1024 version, i'll probably need to resize it, making it more anti-aliased so i'm not sure what to do on that point. Anyway. IT IS DONE!

This work is not and never will be available for (commercial) use in advertising, apps, commercials, games or otherwise. Over the years I've gotten this question -a lot- and if you're looking to use this as artwork I'm sorry to have to disappoint you: The answer's always been same. No, thank you! Cheers!

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-08-07
Come on in from the shipping dock, make a couple bucks working at the factory as a delivery boy, get a bite of fast-food, go on over to watch a game of soccer (err, football!), visit the zoo, hurt your leg slipping on the railway, pay a trip to the local hospital to get bandaged up and then rent a room to get some shuteye. This is all in a dayís work at *howlingís BoxedTown 2. Itís one town thatís worth your stay! ( Suggested by splat and Featured by halfliquid )

incredibly beautiful howling, congratz, really
i'm afraid that i found your work while searching for pixel artists to invite to this new project,
sorry if it's a bit spammy, but the project is legit, and sharing it with pixel artists seemed only natural .. i hope that you'll take a look and maybe leave your mark !
congratz again

Hey, just wanted to let you know that someone submitted this: [link] to my pixel art group with a link to this blog: [link]

After I did some digging, I noticed the blog linked back to this deviation. It appears that the deviant in the first link stole your art and is claiming it's his own. Just thought I'd give the heads up. =) I'm gonna report him now.
