Secret santa gift at Pixelation for Toby. Thought I'd submit this as my last online picture of 2006.

Haven't played any of the games, so I had to rely on what little reference I could find. Had to use a somwhat jaggy laptop mouse, so the rocky texture worked to my advatige I guess. The picture ended up on Joystiq after being on Digg, so you might have seen it there already. No matter though. Here it is again :P It's msPaint by the way.

Happy New Year everybody!

This is amazing! I'm having a hard time believing how detailed this is. Great work!

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/3/2007 19:42

probibly my most fav static piece of art on this forum so far. It deserves 2000 more favs if you ask me (and if it were up to me then it would get them all). Id even go as far as saying that id welcome this as a giant poster on my wall.(being such a fan of both games and all). Congrats on being a pixel genius. fav

89.000.000/5!!! those textures are exceptional! and with so little colors! Wow...

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/2/2007 12:31
This piece is exceptional beyond words. I browsed your DA gallery after seeing this piece and can see that you are quite the artist in many different mediums. I feel that it takes more than just precision pixel placing to create something as grandiose as this and your DA gallery backs up the statement.

5/5, fav'd, and desktopped. Haha.

what they said              

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/2/2007 09:19

snake is a real tribut to the pixel art community. I think we could all learn a lot from him, beautiful piece. It's amazing how something so trivial to many as a community christmas project would become such an inspirational piece. great work!!!!! faved def!!!!

Great, great, great :) This is amazing. Superb palette :) Best piece i have ever seen

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 1/1/2007 12:59
Holy Banana.. Seen it at Pixelation, but its still as awesome as the first time i saw it.

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/1/2007 11:14

It really shows the SOTC ambience with the colors, the background and the characters. I'd put a bit more contrast on it, but the way it is still make me say loudly "HOLY SHIT!" (other people too, but I REALLY said that loudly).

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/1/2007 10:30
Jezus fucking christ

Vital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/1/2007 10:00
My favourite pixelart ever.

Script-br (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/1/2007 09:50


      Wow! Awesome!

Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/1/2007 08:54
Simply amazing. Colours, shading, deatils - it's all so well done. I really like the sky too, you've really managed to catch a feeling of impending doom. It's just all so great. I don't understand how you do it!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/1/2007 07:45
Like.. Ground-breaking!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/1/2007 06:03
Now this is freaky

Omegavolt (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/1/2007 05:51
Perfect palette choice.  +5/+fav

WOW! Im too stunned to say any more...

Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 1/1/2007 03:56
Brilliant, cant wait to see more of your work.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/1/2007 02:20
Wow You are an artist.

Kobun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/1/2007 01:27

This is very ispired and perfectly executed.

This is my favorite piece of pixel art ever.

EyeCraft (Level 3 Stalker) @ 12/31/2006 21:31
this could be the best piece of pixel art i have ever seen. Spectacular job, I am amazed at the low colour count.

Valcron (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/31/2006 18:55
Took a small count, there are 17 colors.  Can anyone else verify this?  Again though, great piece.

Solid Idea (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/31/2006 18:40
My mom said WOWOW
That's pretty darn breathtaking, congrats Snake.

nihilyst (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/31/2006 17:55
That's not impressive ... it's super-impressive. Great work!

Rodahue (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/31/2006 16:57
Haha, that's amazing. Two great games - awesome picture.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/31/2006 15:45
Very impressive work! =)
Game's good too.

Valcron (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/31/2006 13:51
Eckered stole my words.  Darn you.

Fave'd for sure, not gonna pass this one up!

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/31/2006 12:58
2 words:  holy fuck.

Scotteh (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/31/2006 12:41

Best peice i`ve seen on this forum!!


@ryumaru: Cosidering hes on the bottom of the ball?

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/31/2006 12:29

this piece is amazing. something this size i would respect if it had 32 colors, but 17? insane. ive never played either games, but doesnt the little guy push the ball? it looks like its coming towards him, if you flipped the whole scene horizontally, but kept the littledude in the same position i think it would fix that little problem. also, the bottom collosus' head is pretty flat.


horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/31/2006 12:02
OMG this is just superb. The out of this world sky, that amazingly detailed Katamari ball. 5/fav

MarioH2O (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/31/2006 11:41
That is just insane.  I love the clouds and background this whole piece is amazing.

Shawn (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 12/31/2006 11:25
gfhgfhfht HOLY SHIT YES!

pixelblink (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/31/2006 11:22
definitely one of the most impressive pieces I've seen all year

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/31/2006 11:19
Bastard. I give this piece 6 hours before it becomes the top pixel art of the month. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece snake. Every thing looks lovely, and the stone like textures did you justice. Great job. Don't have any critiques at the moment, by I'll be sure to look harder when I get the chance...
(forgot to mention: Yay!! The M.S. paint userbase still has hope...)

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/31/2006 11:04
Toby sure is one lucky son of a gun. This is really one of the most spectacular pieces these eyes have ever seen.  Congrats on all the success on  Digg and Joystiq.
