Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/25/2007 11:36

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 2/25/2007 11:28
Amazing detail in a well designed piece. The fur couldnt be any better.

Wow... he's fuzzy. Nice job!

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/25/2007 06:00
that's one sweet cursed boar...

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/25/2007 02:08
i made the background simple because the point in this piece is the boar after all
so it gets all the attention ;)

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 2/25/2007 00:42
Superb detail, the pose and background are rather dynamic!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/24/2007 23:47
My bad, I didn't read the rules properly! The restriction I mentioned was only for the Love robot challange

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/24/2007 21:26
That is a very scary piggy. Congrats.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/24/2007 17:49
read the rules again, because there was only ever 1 restriction

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/24/2007 15:41
err...what? XDxDxD

Plunk (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/24/2007 15:40
the two zanne they are not bent too much in various way between they?

le due zanne non si curvano in modo troppo diverso fra loro?

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/24/2007 15:32
there were no color restrictions as far as i know O-O

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/24/2007 15:29
It's awesome! But isn't the color restriction 32 colors for the contest? Anyways! I can't believe it hasn't been fave'd yet! I'll fix that right up

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/24/2007 15:18
xD uhm...thanks...

Well I feel stupid for not looking  in his gallery i did not know he was at this skill level and Elk this amazing! I am very sorry Elk, I did not know you were THIS good.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/24/2007 15:05
elk is a well known AND respected pixel artist, and this is his skill level.  if you look you can obviously tell that all aspects of it were done by hand.

before you accuse someone of doing a color reduction, do yourself a favor and look in their gallery first, besides i don't really think your at the level to be judging more advanced techniques as not being pixel art.

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/24/2007 14:37
i started my other one what started good but until you said 150x150 i gave up and got lazy ^.^

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/24/2007 14:34
elk its amazing

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/24/2007 14:24
it is done by hand wtf o-O have you ever seen a boar with horns like that and eyes? lol

there is a paper on its horn which is a magic seal :P
this boar is a cursed one ;)!

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/24/2007 14:16

Well when I first saw this it looked to me like this was a color reduction. Maybe some WIPs would convince me. But if it was made from hand I thhink this is extremely well done. Much better than my entry.

PS what is the thing coming out of its right (our left) horn? It looks to me to be an axe head.
