From here on out, lets just assume what I'm submitting is work for this project :p. It will probably end up requiring some 30+ sprites or so.

Here's my third real attempt at pixel art. A profaned version of the Axohuatl, looking nice and melty. Took far longer than I would have expected, but I'm utlimately very satisfied with the final product. Draws inspiration from every Miyazaki movie with a black blob thing in it. :D

I thought it was Venom on the preview :) Anyhow, nice job, I like this piece!

Looks like a mother alien that's melting.... cool! :p

Fantastic piece.  I'm in love with the front arm and tongue.

I find the contrast just fine on my screen. It has a wonderful sense of texture, great stuff.

Looks like a mix between "Venom" and "Aliens."
This is really impressive work.
The shading is simply perfection.

While I'm not changing it now, I do agree that more contrast might have helped it stand out. Guess I was a bit too worried about making it look dark and forgot to make it easy to see :p

It doesn't look like something I would like to meet in a dark alley.
I like it but as Josiah said, maybe it could have some more contrast?

might need a bit more contrast, still I like it

Hm, Porco Rosso, Totoro, Laputa, Nausaaca have no black blob things as far as I remember. Xion you need to watch more miyasaki stuff (older stuff, not just what disney brought to the US :P)

Oh, I'm sure it would be a blast to hug :p

"every Miyazaki movie with a black blob thing in it."
Just about all of them, eh?
I like the matte blackness this has. Nice silky smoothness. I bet it's squishy.
