Its been a while in the making, but here it is, finished.  Thanks goes out to all those in the forums here and at pixelation who for the crits.

edit 1/23/10: touched up the palette and made a few tiny tweaks as it was getting a bit outdated, old version found here.

Excellent work here. The level of detail in the water in particular is very well done.

user
Moss (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/20/2007 06:41

I love this picutre :D

Does one of the Vikings know he lost his oar or is he just paddling air?


user
momovampire (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/19/2007 17:51
The vikings also reminds me of The Lost Vikings--that really old game by Blizzard before they went on to make Warcraft (they were then called Silicon & Synapse)... Baelog and Olaf didn't see their unfortunate friend Erik get *loved!

Super cool. Looks like a screenshot from Vikings of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest 

user
dragonrc (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/16/2006 05:18

congratulations with your prize! I also thought you deserved it.

I really like this  piece of art, the lightning, the sea... brilliant


user
cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 11/4/2006 01:02
I forgot all about that.  I honestly didn't think it'd stand its ground so well, but the feedback has been more than I ever could have asked for.

user
Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 11/3/2006 16:37

user

I agree with jalonso. I forgot to mention how much I like the lightning and moon under cloud.

user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/10/2006 22:35
My other comment on this is an inside joke. I wish to add a serious comment now.
There are many great pieces in Pixeljoint. There is a smaller group of truly inspired pieces. This, piece, imo, really belongs in the even smaller group of pixelart masterpieces.

user
Meka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/10/2006 17:09
Hehe! I really like the cartoonish style of your pixel art! Good palet choice and I really like the final result! Good work!

user
Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 10/8/2006 01:21
This turned out great, it's excellent.

user
Xero (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/6/2006 22:54
Absolutely awesome. Great use of dithering, nice detail, and very, very well used colours.

user
cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 10/5/2006 12:34
Seems like it could turn out that way, Souly.  Thanks to EVERYONE for all the tremendous feedback, its made the time put into this piece worth every minute.

user
Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/5/2006 12:16
<333 Seems you owe ens some fan art.

user
milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/5/2006 11:35
The sea on this piece is jus spectacular. Infact I really can fault it. The scenery and sprites seem to match perpectly. Deffo reminds me of the lost vikings game, but this is far FAR better. Well done, great job.

user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/5/2006 10:53
Congrats by me as well. This is wonderful.

user
Sohashu (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/5/2006 07:13
Man.  This has come a long way.   Nice fmood you have got going on.  And, you managed to not take it too far as far as cramming too much stuff in.  An Exceelent piece of work. 

user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/4/2006 23:17
Awesome, no doubt. I would have liked to have seen some land with like maybe a castle on it

user
crab2selout.png (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/4/2006 20:55
Fantastic piece! It's been a lot of fun to watch this progress from start to finish. I'm looking forward to your next piece.

user
Shikamaster (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2006 15:35
Sweet looking, somehow reminds me of MetalSlug?
