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!

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).

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!

this could be the best piece of pixel art i have ever seen. Spectacular job, I am amazed at the low colour count.

user
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.

Best peice i`ve seen on this forum!!

 

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


user
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.

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...)

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.
