It was drawn as a concept of a boss for the game we're working on. For a few reasons gameplay concept took slightly different direction, so i'll keep it here.=)

Update: All right, i've fixed some spoted issues (not all of it =), The B.O.B., Doppleganger, [Maestro] - thanks guys for a help, i appreciate it.=)

Awesome! Feels like it'll just pop out of the screen at any second!

LegacyCrono (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/8/2008 08:25

Whoa, that's awesome!! For some reason, it reminds me that old SHMUP game, Parodius...

Great work, and fav'ed!

Dude, you're sick

in a gooood way

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/24/2008 11:14
It is perfect.
I would love to play that game you're working on, if it has pixel art like this in it.

Rare Cabbage (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2008 07:34
Absolutely amazing. Funny, too, The expression is rather odd though.
The animation is amazing. You made the shell move perfectly.
Amazing work.

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/1/2008 23:01
Fcking incredible 5/5 favorite, the works. lol.

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 12/2/2007 10:38

Unbelievably beutiful and amazing peace of work! You must be really a genius!

DevonR (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/3/2007 18:33
The shell movement is quite interesting. It is amazing how you are able to rotate and turn objects in 2D, and make them look like a moving 3D object. I find this very difficult, but you excel at it!!!

Luna (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/31/2007 09:03
 U N B E L I E B A B L E x_x; i want your skills.

Akaimakai (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/25/2007 02:07
Amazing animation, a masterpiece of heroic fantasy design ! You are a genius !

Haze01 (Level 1 Intern) @ 10/2/2007 16:04
Beautiful colors, animates smoothly, and a fantastic fantasy character design.  Very nice!

Majesterium (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/26/2007 12:34
woah, is amazing. nice one =]

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/19/2007 13:58
beautiful masterpiece

ATinyDot (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/12/2007 09:03
oh my  that is just marvellous! Howver i must say at first it made me chuckle  it reminds me of Jabba the Hut from Star Wars

vorofikin (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/10/2007 04:14
Well, I like all your works, but this one is best imo. This 3d effect is just great.

gokuhssj3 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/7/2007 13:39
oh ..... my ......... freaking ...... GOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JESUS !!!!!!!!! THIS IS AW_ SOME "FAJI!"KK!"$"!$$!$!

Darien (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/25/2007 23:15
Wow, I can't believe I missed this. This is really awesome, design wise and of course the animation is just insane... man keep it up, you've got such a unique style in the pixelling community, it's really refreshing. As Larwick said, the shell seems a little thin, like it's not with the right perspective, but meh

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/16/2007 00:13
Marvelous! I like the detail reflection in the eye moving, nice touch!

MirandaRose (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/10/2007 17:12
Absolutely amazing.

PlasticOrchard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/15/2007 22:01
reminds me of jabba the hut. I like it!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/11/2007 17:23
I havent commented on this yet??!

Absolutely pro, of course. The shell seems a tad thin however, for some reason. Maybe you could look into that when you next animate something similar. But seriously, this is excellent.

Imp (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/11/2007 08:43
I just can't believe this is done in pure pixel. You must be some sort of pixel genius!

seakingelebit (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/2/2007 09:04
if he were walking backword he wqould be cleaning up his slime trail, that would be a really cool detail.

Llama (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 1/14/2007 05:42
Восторг! Очень оригинальное существо. :)

Luca (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/11/2007 07:15
coll animation and everything!

TillimannBanana (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/10/2007 02:44
F*** great animation... You're the greatest 5/5 + fav!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/5/2007 08:45
All: Thank you very much for comments and kind words=)

Milkyjon: I'm patient  and well tempered.=)

Riva: the only magic involved is the fact I don't have to do it.=))

2dgamers (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/4/2007 08:24
Color = 10/10, Design = 10/10, Texture = 10/10, Animation = 10/10, Flawless and Absolutely Beautiful!!!

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/3/2007 20:23
Ohh what I wouldn't do to climb inside your head and suck out your brains. So much knowelage and imagination. Just...just...well ... AWE inspiring. I havent seen anything this good since the days of Metal slug. Where do you find the time to cope with such a task. I start off enthusiastic when I start a mammoth game, but by the end im nearly  always glad to see the back of it (this animation surely must have drove you Well all I can say is that your work is an insperation to me, I truly love pixel animation and yours is some of the finest that ive ever seen. Keep up the good work fool.

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/2/2007 23:34
I love the fact that you didnt make any "shortcuts" with this animation, but bravely used all three dimensions even it must have added loads of work.  This is absolutely stunning piece.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/2/2007 06:48
I never understoond where some people get time and energy to create something so professionaly done, detailed and animated.
Must be either black magic or some special techniques I want able to learn during my 15years of pixeling.
(Im deeply depressed now and will go find some dark room to think of suicide) ;)

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/2/2007 03:56
We know now why your nickname is "Fool" ;) Seriously this is an AWESOME work !!!

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 1/1/2007 13:00
Sweet Pepperoni, awesome work.. :o.

Sir Pimpalot (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/31/2006 02:24
Whoa...the color, detail, animation, and everything else is
...not much I can say, really. ;)

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/30/2006 11:08
Thanks you all for the comments.=)

FlyGuy: ... winnig, loosing  - couldn't care less, all that fun which is fiiling up the gap between these two illusions just makes my day.=))

mikeful (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/30/2006 10:13
On scale 1 to 5 this would be about 100. Great job with colors and animation.

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/30/2006 09:58
wow're going to win top 10 with every piece this month...damn you

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/30/2006 03:11
So amazing

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 12/29/2006 14:57
 I just wish i could give it more than 8/8. Best large scale animation I have ever seen.

PedroAGontijo (Level 1 White Belt) @ 12/29/2006 14:44
This is perfect. It looks real, and it's pixelled. Only the right eyebrow animation is a bit funny. but still wow.
I guess this sucks for a boss. I would never want to kill it and lose sight of it! I suggest you make it invincible

Zetabot (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/29/2006 11:46

Nothing to say that hasn't been said. Fantastic, and favorite'd.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/29/2006 09:33
Thanks, guys.=)

Scotteh, yeah, it will be short and long distance attacks, loosing perhaps, optionally victory dance and some misc moves animations.

NMEwithin (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/29/2006 09:29
Great concept for a Boss and the artwork is truly amazing....great work dude, I really like this.

Scotteh (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/29/2006 07:16
And also, if this is the idle stance and its a boss for a game..... Are you making an attack animation?

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/29/2006 05:18
Oh my god, THREE DEE! That is amazing.
I do think Maestro is a bit nitpicky. I only spotted those things after you pointed it out, and this was supposed to be a game design, not something to scrutinize for several minutes!
Still, it's constructive so I won't complain. Awesome piece all in all.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 12/29/2006 05:17
it looks... terrifying?! I would definitely want a boss such as this one to fight! :D

Well, on the other hand, if you look closely to the 234th pixel from the left, and the 132nd pixel from the top, you'll see that... uh...

just kidding. it's amazing :)
