    Well, this is my first go at impressionism, and before I started it I never knew it ever existed.

    It's just the blu menu screen painted over in Photoshop, but I like it. It didn't take ages but nor did it take 10 minutes. Also the scouts face was hard to do, as you can probably tell, he looks very weird. I'm guessing it's because it was the smallest part, and so many different coloured pixels. I've tried numerous times to do it and this was the best I got.

    EDIT: My friend who told me it was impressionism has now just told me that it's probably not the right term :/ I'm not an artist nor do I know much about art so if anyone knows the correct term and could change the thread accordingly, thanks.

    Actually, Impressionism is the original TF2 style.

    I don't know what you'd call this. reminds me of A Scanner Darkly.

    Meh, if it's not blurry or grainy, it's not impressionism :p

    So we've established it's not impressionism...which I sort of already knew thanks to Google.

    It'd look more like Impressionism if you vectored it without outlines.
