I realised not too long ago of the crappyness of my old grunt lizard guy.  At the time he represented my max abilities with pixelart (about 3 years ago).  I figured I may as well revisit this guy and make it up to par with my current abilities.

12 colours + trans.  5 colours reused in both colour ramps.

Fixed several major things:
  • colour palette
  • colour convervation / unification
  • anatomy
  • textures
  • composition and lighting
the old one can be viewed here:

and here is an animated progress gif combining the processes of the old as well as the new versions:

Really nice palette, and use of it! I'd love to see this in a game


user
altagu (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/20/2009 11:24

STUNNING!! 5/5

i doubt this was made through mortal techniques...

One of my favorite pieces on the site, hands down. I love the texture and shading. The only criticism I have is the positioning of the tail. I feel it would look a bit better if moved down and to the left by a good deal. At the moment, it looks a bit like it's coming out of his side more than the center of his back (albeit bent to the right).

That aside, it's such a superb piece.

hipoKi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/29/2008 13:19
you are a genius!

user
japez (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/13/2008 00:29

This is waaaaaaaaay better

user
Pandora (Level 2 Corporal) @ 3/11/2008 18:27
I like this one better, honestly. They are both good, though! Your original seems like something in a comic book, while this looks more like true pixel art.

user
funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/19/2008 15:04
niiice. I hope to see more great stuff from you.

user
elder-bunny (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/4/2007 19:37
I liked the feel of the old one a bit better. This one is just too... real?

user

user
ceddo (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/13/2006 14:39
... and you didn't dither a single part of it!!

I'm jealous. I'm gonna try a zero-dithered piece as soon as I finish my competition.

I forgot to say this: it's amazing.

Amazing anatomy and excellent shading.


user

This shading is absolutely perfect. This is a good proof that even great artists never cease to learn.

Luckily for me, this was submitted in November, so I don't have to compete.

user
Pieface (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/9/2006 10:44
So what will win, this or Kraken vs Vikings for Number 1 position

user
iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/8/2006 15:55
Effin cool work here Indigo!

user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 11/8/2006 14:44

Haven't commented yet. I wasn't really sure what to say.

Well, this is gorgeous. The shapes, forms and colours are awesome - and i think the character concept is brilliant. This is a serious improvement on your previous one, which to be honest i don't like half as much. Really shows how much you've improved.


user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/8/2006 08:39
looks very good indigo *hugs* good job

user
Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/7/2006 23:28
My word - it's even greater.

user
pixelblink (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 11/7/2006 23:23
this will be the last time I'm faving this

user
Aramax (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/7/2006 20:42

I knew I had seen this before.

You should work on the face and give him a T-rex aspect. Would be more creepy that way.


user
crab2selout.png (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/7/2006 19:51
Your palettes have really improved, Indy. You integrate all the different pieces and forms much better now than before. Textutring is tops..  I'd like to see you vary the range of highlights and shadows used on different body parts at different height levels. This really sticks out to me looking at how skillful you are in other areas.

user
Mowzr (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/7/2006 19:38
 Wow simply amazing. I dont think there's a fault in this. It just flows, perfectly. Flawlessly.

user
Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 11/7/2006 19:15
Far better. I love it.

user
buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/7/2006 17:35
Great improvement indigo! Both are excellent, It seems you are a lot less shy with the highlights nowadays :). Beautiful.
