I love all the details! Great!

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/30/2006 19:55

I love it, but fully second Stitchy's comments. Actually I tried it and replacing the black with a dark, desaturated blue helps alot, imo. Then again, the black may be a stylistic choice, so...  Either way, it's a definite 5 from me.

Aiko (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 5/30/2006 10:29
simply beautiful.

Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 5/29/2006 22:35
WOW this is really awesome... probably took you some time! Favo'd from my side too!

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/29/2006 17:00
Excellent stuff.

Frario (Level 6 Made) @ 5/29/2006 08:44
I love this kind of scene, favo'd. Give me back memorires of good games, like Tombraider, SC, etc.

Omegavolt (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 5/29/2006 07:49
Wow!  It even has the authentic gritty, urban feel!  I love it! +5 and fav'd! :D

daporta (Level 7 Colonel) @ 5/29/2006 06:01

I have no words man!!!! Really reaaally awesome



Jaffa (Level 1 Thug) @ 5/29/2006 04:58
Love it so damn much!

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/29/2006 04:15
I really love this jalonso! I've been more and more inclined to pixel art that relates directly to  original games lately, and this is mighty impressive! The very far backgrounds impress me most, nice work!

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/29/2006 02:51
Lovely blue shades. 36 colours is really good too. The lamps by the doors could be a bit brighter, but that's just a tiny nitpick. Really good overall.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/29/2006 02:15
@dm404 and Stichy, those were issues raised on the WIP thread in the forum you can view a version with your suggestions there.
@-DE-, I had to work within the style of the sprites not made by me for this game. I hardly ever use black outlines and actually hate them, so I agree 100% with you.
@sedge, its not ISo or a Joint room

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/29/2006 01:41
Phenomenal work jalonso. One of the best pixel city backgrounds I've ever seen.

jessi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/29/2006 01:36

lol. Wow it looks so real.  Well done jalonso


Stitchy (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/28/2006 16:08
Wow, the buildings in the distance are what really make this piece. But the light brown building is kinda distracting... perhaps add some bluish shading to it instead so it sort of "fits" more into the picture without it blending with the background?

But, really, this is spectacular. Hope to see more from you~

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 5/28/2006 13:10
The only part I don't like are the stark black outlines. It takes away a lot from this picture IMO.
The BG is class, though.
"i going to say" - thumbs up!

Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 5/28/2006 07:40
What i going to say? That's great! I love the dark climat, just like Deus Ex title town  Perfect colors, superb dithrening shading...Keep it up.

dm404 (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/28/2006 03:53
Indeed this is very atmosphereic.  One suggestion though, I think the background needs to be less monocromatic, but I'm guessing you intended to do that.  Good work.  I love cityscape backgrounds!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/28/2006 02:18

Wicked, really atmoshperic. Hopefully your next one will be just as good ^_^ +fav

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 5/28/2006 01:46

Holy shit! This is amazing! I simply love everything about it! What kind of game will this be for?

Llama (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 5/27/2006 23:29
That's wonderful! Great job.

mikl3 (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/27/2006 22:04
Greate scene! I like it all

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/27/2006 21:57
Thank you all.
@Boder, A group of people with different skills, music, bkg art, sprites, programming, soundFX, that get together to make a games.
@Ensellitis, I'll propose that idea (called parallax?) to the group (sounds hard to do).
@setzer, there's a small iso easter egg in it, +10 forum coins if you find it.

Boder (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/27/2006 21:49
So damn good.

But what's a game clan? And I agree that you absolutely have to do this parallax, like Ensellitis said. If I was playing this game with silky smooth parallax effects, I think I'd give birth to lovebabies that would bring instant world peace.

radio_active (Level 2 Corporal) @ 5/27/2006 21:13
amazing! cant wait to play!

diefox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/27/2006 21:02
wow! thats awesome!

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 5/27/2006 20:29
Simply amazing. And this is just your first BK

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 5/27/2006 19:18
You should consider making a layer for each background, so when you move, you can have each move at a different speed.  Here is a good example of what I mean.

Great job!

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/27/2006 19:10
A wonderful scene. Great job jalonso :D

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 5/27/2006 18:44
As I said in the forum, even the development steps should be treasured... 7/7

Nomade (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/27/2006 18:37
Great perspective!
The background is awesome.. and.. it has.. such a good perspective! i'm amazed =D
Nice colors, no crits for this, it can't be better =D

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/27/2006 18:23
wait a second... this isn't iso =O RIP!!@1... great work, ;)

Bifur (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/27/2006 18:06
hah lovely background, remember me demolisher movie

Brian the Great (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/27/2006 17:54
Awesomeness to the max!
