Every summer in the proliferate woods, in an area not so remote,
The fuzzy raccoons and porcupines would gather 'round to dote.
Their well-to-do fun however, would never last too long,
as the chickadees did flee, trilling a foreboding song.
From beneath the foliage rose, a creature of such disgust,
It turned the good natured critters to a hatred-driven lust.
Before you know it, Fisticuffs! A good bout sure did loom,
and the winner won the honors of putting the thing to doom.


Would you believe that I spent forever writing that poem, submitted the piece and discovered that for some reason it didn't submit and then had to rewrite the whole thing? It happened. Luckily I remembered most of it and the parts I didn't remember ended up better.

The piece is comprised almost entirely of random commissioned work so I feel I did rather well at keeping the colors to 33 (damn you transparency). That's all I got.

The broccoli monster, would defintly make a good character in an rpg game.  He could run around in the woods, searching for his half brother, the coliflower  monster. Once he finds him, the broccoli monster must head towards the great castle of cheese, and fight off cheese guards. To tell the king, a meteor is going to crash into the palace. Once he does that, the meteor crashes and everyone dies.
the end.

lol, I love this piece of art! It's fantastic!!!

I always knew that brocoli was evil.

evincarofautumn (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/16/2008 16:05
A strong piece in general, but I am just absolutely in love with the border. 

snut (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/16/2007 18:49

5/6 but 6/6 for the expression on the broccoli's face!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/21/2007 06:55
Love the mixed colors on the ground.
Great piece!

Plunk (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/15/2007 11:09
cosa è quella cosa verde?

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/1/2007 12:09
I should, I would. If it were vorpal brocolli, it'd be +5 for sure. Part of what I tried capturing was the fact that the brocolli is not really as fierce as he's made out to be. All it is, is a psyched out piece of brocolli who can do nothing but lie dormant and fear what's to become of him. After all, an oddity such as a parpalegic animated brocolli, is sure to have an unsavory destiny.

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/1/2007 07:27
Vorpal brocolli! You should put bones and skeletons around it so it looks even more fearsome.

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/30/2007 13:31
This looks really really nice :)

brod'tam (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/28/2007 17:19

I spent a while wondering what the monster is.. then I realized to start reading the topic too. The poem is very excellent and complements the beautiful pixel art.
