He's (very roughly) based on an ostrich, he's supposed to be as tall as an adult man but way stronger and with a much bigger head and a  deadly jaw. Well he's a vegetarian so the "deadly" jaw is only deadly to you, if you happen to be a plant or a fruit.

(16 colors, the working title was "Baumvieh" and I want to take the opportunity here to again give a big THANKS for all the C+C to everyone who commented in the wip thread)

updated May 18th 2006:
The more I looked at it, the more I grew unhappy about the palette, so I made some changes to it. Also changed the small file to use it as my avatar.

updated Jun 6th 2007:
Small file is back to the original small file and uses the original palette.

It's a long story. Please read the chatterbox for details (scroll down a bit).

What the hell is that thing?

Jacobo (Level 1 Private) @ 4/14/2008 04:36
Cool and original idea.

He scares me.  :P

Like everyone said, the new pallete definately looks better

0xDB (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/19/2006 15:59
Glad you like the update. :)

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/18/2006 06:58
Ah, the new pallette is nice and moody, i like it.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 5/18/2006 06:23
Ahh, nice update. The previous palette was worked nicely but this is much better

KRY (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/14/2006 21:16
Very well made, but I agree, it's disturbing.

Psiweapon (Level 4 Ensign) @ 5/14/2006 05:40
Zomg :O it's... disturbing oO

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/10/2006 05:29
I saw this piece earlier and loved it instantly. You made exceptionally good use of this palette, and both the lineart and colouring are top-notch. Plus I have a thing for odd concepts, so... 5/5 for definite.

0xDB (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/9/2006 09:35
Thanky and Danke sehr ;). You make Dennis a happy Pixeling with all your nice comments.

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/9/2006 03:43
Very strange, but clearly that was intentional, so it looks nice.

PedroAGontijo (Level 1 White Belt) @ 5/8/2006 18:03
Yay, you finally managed to finish it! Turned out as a great piece, if I may
Very nice for surrealism and dithering, the outline too is worth a comment. His muscles and face are very good! Definitely fav :)

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/8/2006 14:47
I love the vivid dithering and texture this has. The colours are very tantalising and the background is very dream-like. I like the border too :)

Lackey (Level 4 Ensign) @ 5/8/2006 11:24
Such a strange palette, but expertly applied.  Surreal content is a plus!  Great variety of technique too, from the little texture elements in the fur and bark to the regular dithering on his skin and the tidy outlining of the clouds.  I like it a lot.

Awesome lines and fresh coloring, already saw in in the wip section. Ganz wunderbar.
