mk ex (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/16/2007 06:06
woow amiazing work

Frogger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/21/2007 12:50

natano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/21/2007 10:15
WOOW!!!!! good work man

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 5/19/2007 00:56
This is pretty awesome. My main crit is that you've made the highlights on skin, armor, .. with the same 'consistency' as the flames. Consistency as in the consistency of a liquid - the flames look vaguely sticky, which is okay, but looks weird on other surfaces.
The armoured shoulder is an example of this weirdness;
the near hand is an example of good rendering.
In short, some variation in material properties would go well in this picture.

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/22/2007 21:57
This kicks some serious Boo-Tay! Great job!

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/10/2007 08:38
It may have been a pain in the ass to pixel, but it looks like it would be worth it. its really good.

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/4/2007 11:18
no way.

that's freaking sweet.  i thought about pixeling a tarot deck, but i haven't the patients.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/28/2007 06:37
Kicks ass! Now you have to do the entire set! :D

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/3/2006 05:20
Whoa. Please wait till I pick up my jaw from the ground, it just dropped O_O
Absolutely rules.

ahayweh (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/16/2006 16:20
Absolutely brilliant. If I can get half as good as you, I will be happy. The shading an design are top-notch.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 10/13/2006 15:03
Awesome, great drawing and design.

Help Please, (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2006 19:20
How can you call this unclean?
This thing is awesome,
I love the character design

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 9/30/2006 12:57
Man, I remember seeing this years ago at eatpoo. It is unclean on a pixel level, but overall I love the energy it has, and the character design is really nice. As shown in Ptoing's edit, contrast would've really brought the quality way up.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/29/2006 07:27

Ah okay, sorry for the unecissary crits.
And ptoing, that edit looks sweet. Probs cus of the higher contrast and stuff...

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 9/29/2006 01:24
hey, thanks everyone. and thanks for crits, but as I said, this is about two years old, and I wont do anything more on it, but yea, probably would have done a few things different if I did it today.

ptoing: dont really remember you, recognize your avatar tho. nice to see you again nonetheless. Love your 16 col version, somehow it gets much more dynamic than my 51 desaturated messy cols. ;)

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 9/28/2006 20:01
Heya Emmanuel, would not have thought to see you here :B You prolly don't know who I am since I was not very active on poo when you were. Anyway, I just had to edit this for fun. 16 colour version http://ptoing.net/gehinedit.png

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/28/2006 16:10

Looks great. However i think this could seriously benefit from some dramatic depth effects. Basically, at the moment the colouring of his closest hand and the top of his leg make them seem they are on the same plane, when obviously the hand is far closer. Of course it's dramatic already, but some higher contrast between shades would be great (or more shades, seeing as it's quite a large piece *looks at colour count* wait a second.. maybe not. It may be possible to recycle a number of the red, blue, or brown shades used elsewhere in the image for the body's shading). Perhaps add some highlights on the front of his fist, rather than just at the edges. And obviously i'd prefer it to be AAd (just lightly), or at least where there are blinding jaggies.

Lol, i think i've exhausted that for now. Good piece, but just doesnt tick every box for me yet.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/28/2006 12:05
as close to perfect as can be achieved. The fact that you did not AA just makes this awesome execution.

jangheejoon (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/28/2006 09:25
This is pretty sweet.  I'm really enjoying the different blends of shadings all meshing together, especially with the light of the fire have an effect on the figure itself.  The only nitpick that I have is the text on the bottom being a little hard to read due to it being light, but other than that, this is great!

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 9/28/2006 09:18
thanks guys. as for more, I posted two characters that I threw together today... not as ambitious, but still! (I think one of them is still in queue..)

Stitchy (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/28/2006 09:16
Wow, really original and awesome. I've always wanted to do a tarot card series with my characters, since I have so many. Back to the pixel art, I think you could totally improve this by messing with the outling and making it less defined. Even though it's an old work, it has a great amount of potential. ;) Let's see some more!

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 9/28/2006 08:38
Ecellent i love it and everything except: the backround??? That fir would work out super duper with a black backround (instead of the weird bright one)

maloART (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/28/2006 07:49

That's excellent ! I really like the light effects ! Palette is also well done and the frame is superb !

That's a fav 6/6 !
