Pixel perfection could be as subtle as the textures contained in a piece. I initially wanted to add primitive blocks of brush strokes but didn't seem to correspond with the dithering intent. Instead, I've opted to have brush strokes co-exist with dithered pixels in the most elegant way possible to give the foreground a better pop. It would seem like a poor-man's motion blur by having the front brighter than the back but there's definitely a dualism here.

Using my custom dithering shader this showcases the use of textures in some areas to make a differential front/back dichotomy. It's a light touch but without this feature it would appear like it's missing something, something akin to a missing bass player in concert.

As with my pixel perfect elephant piece this is meant to be seen by its actual size, namely, 9000 x 9000 pixels. But any ratio that is a multiple, like half of its actual size, could also have perceived dithering. It is suggested to print at the actual size of 30" x 30" for the full experience.
