Something of a "pull-myself-out-of-a-slump" piece, which I'm quite happy with, in the end. Many, many thanks to the guys over at pixelpolois for the in depth crits and general help/encouragement, especially Helm (for pushing me outside my comfort zone, again) and ptoing (for the cane idea).

14 colours, I think, including the background.

Wowww, speechless. Great shading.

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/14/2007 14:14
Ha, thats not what I expected to see! Great shading.

Soup (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/14/2007 05:20
Loving the texture and color count/choice on this one. Hopefully we will see more of your texturing skills.

ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 9/1/2006 04:45
The colors and shading in this piece are amazing! The pose looks a little off to me, like we can't really feel the immense weight of this giant creature. Even adding a slight curve to the cane would do wonders to give this piece real solidness.

daporta (Level 7 Colonel) @ 8/18/2006 17:00
Amazin piece!!! Fav Automat.

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 8/17/2006 20:34

Again, I take no credit for the cane idea. That was all ptoing's.  Thanks, though, guys; you're way too kind.

Oh, and apologies, Cure, for not doing away with those strays! Should be done, must be done, will be done! ...soon as I'm done procrastinating.

Awesome piece 5/5

ben2theedge (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/15/2006 06:42

I wasn't excited by the preview but then I clicked and saw the cane. You win.

Tomas (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/14/2006 15:21
I love that grin. And the cane. :) Great piece!

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/14/2006 13:29
I thought the WIP looked good, but it's amazing the difference thats been made after following the C+C, helm's in particular.  That pallete is fantastic.  If I'm not mistaken, there are two stray pixels in the top right corner of the piece, which is really the closest thing i have to a crit.

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/13/2006 11:27
XD I love the cane. It's really cute.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/12/2006 06:24

Dammit, can't believe i missed this being submitted. Great work as usual. +fav

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/12/2006 05:52
Very nice, fav =D

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 8/11/2006 19:35

Thanks guys.

Jalonso: I think I should clarify. When I said I was happy with it, I mostly meant on a technical level. The actual artwork has a ton of flaws, but I'm quite happy with the palette, and some of the technical stuff. I totally see what you're saying, though, and no, you shouldn't be happy with just anything I produce  If you think it could be improved, tell me (like you did) 'cause otherwise I'll never learn.  Oh, and you're not the only one with the weird icon fixation. If I didn't care mine wouldn't be so consistent.

BlackFang (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/11/2006 17:12
the only thing i would change are the horns on his head, they are too much

papagaio (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/11/2006 15:41


very nice work !!!

O.O (impressed)

spiv (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/11/2006 04:39
nice work :)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/11/2006 00:52
One thing above your pixelling skills and creative ideas which leave no questions, ever! is your abilty to layout your pieces in a well designed and laid out canvas. On this you failed. Even on a blank background the sense of weight and space is missing on this. The grey BG being so tight around the creature makes him smaller than he suggests he is. You claim to be in an artistic slump, so I should be glad, seeing anything you make since its always inspiring.
Kudos, on not ignoring your companion icon piece and the very logoesque frame you have developed. I may be the only person that rates the icon to the piece too.
Ramble over

damn, great work from you again.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 8/10/2006 22:06

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/10/2006 21:13
