For my 2 year anniversary here, I made this.  He is a Zombie-Ninja-Pirate-Cowboy-Astronaut-Trainer.

However, there is more than meets the eye.  There are roughly 30 references to pixel artists that I respect/admire mixed in.  Some are very obvious, others not so much.

I won't tell you where they are, use your imagination, and look closely.

There are 22 colors, 2 and 2...  Get it? :P

And yes, I know that there is no gravity in space so there shouldn't be drips, etc...  Get over it, it's fantasy art.

Sweet, I love this.  The background is great

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/14/2009 09:28

I jus realised that i kind of see the shape of a penis on the moon surface, It could be me :P


yet i'm probably wrong :P since I see penises everywhere all the time

Haha, the pokéball.

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/9/2007 08:26
Jal, if I were there at all, I'd probably be the AA XP

This is awesome, why didn't I see it earlier?!

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 6/11/2007 04:45
The blood could possibly be the blood from bb's orcs pic, the goblin has blood hanging like that ... or that may be a little far fetched.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/10/2007 20:32
niether :P                       

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/10/2007 19:46
Is that leel or dra on the moon's surface?

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/10/2007 18:14
Yay! Really cool character design. I like how you handled the long legs. References are a nice touch as well. Happy 2 years!

Inferno.Fighter.IV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/9/2007 19:47
This is really cool! It's not the style though, it's all the hidden references. 5/5

Animmaniac (Level 4 Murderer) @ 6/6/2007 15:42
space dithering = Monsoon2D?
the whole purpose of this piece as well as the pose reminds of the "1 Year at Pixel Joint" from Lawrence

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/6/2007 12:14

wow, I can get hardly any of these.

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/6/2007 04:40
Congrats, Ens, 2 good years here. I couldnt find more refs than the others already did...give us a double proofed list!

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/6/2007 03:07
@bp: sure does :D
@ilkke: yes, the horns are you, and what other animal has that shape?
@di0: you are in there.  like i said, some are very obvious, others are very subtle.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/6/2007 02:33
Horns for iLkke!

Very refreshing to see you experiment in style like this. Congrats on your first two years, now you're officially a toddler! :D

P.S. I spy a little sperm or a worm in the lower left, but I don't know who it could refer to?

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 6/6/2007 00:39
Ooh goodie, I love these "Highlights" type puzzles.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/5/2007 22:21
Hmm... any chance the blinking eye is a reference to pixelblink?

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/5/2007 19:46
Where am i :( There's a obvious lack of dildoes in that peice.

But all in all, I really love this, This really represent you and your "sejour" in pixeljoint :D Is the cut finger represent your rage against nubs?


soda (Level 10 President) @ 6/5/2007 17:42
The ninja part is my favorite part.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/5/2007 15:18
@buloght, he nailed a bunch of the obvious ones ;P
@eckered, as did you...  plus you got the helm reference, gj gj.  you are wrong on the animation though, fyi :)
@everyone else: thanks!

remember, some things are REALLY hidden, others are hidden in plain sight, you may be looking at it without know you are

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/5/2007 14:04

mirre (?) on the sky and with her pokemon fad?

helm dither on the tail?

fools logo thing on the belt?

jalonsos bug in the stars?

blubery's fish on the planet?

thats all i see =(

wait a second... i know that subtile animation is from somebody... the guy that drew someone drawing stick figures on paper... *looks for name*

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 6/5/2007 12:55
Haha, this is really cool ens, I tried to find a few, but I don't know who the ufo is though I think I am missing the obvious, and I couldn't find larwick, I know he must be there. (maybe ufo is indigo)

- fool on the belt
- monkey tail = sedgemonkey or either monkey o doom or both.
- fish shape on planet = blueberry_pie
- stars in form of bug jalonso
- the cowboy thingies on the boots reminds me of rodder's western movie set
- the black hole flying in space = istvan
- pokemon ball could be mirre
- mario hat = badassbill
- horns is the vikings from thereisnocure

natano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/5/2007 12:20

hahahah,lol man this good work and nice cool

Robot-Hero (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/5/2007 11:56
Hahaha, very nice Ensellitis, so creative ^^'

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/5/2007 11:24
no pencil

GingerStu (Level 1 Private) @ 6/5/2007 11:02
Awesome Ens! There aren't enough Zombie-Ninja-Pirate-Cowboy-Astronaut-Trainers on PJ!

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 6/5/2007 10:59
Nice :)
But offcourse there is gravity on space!!
Gravity is everywhere!
But not everywhere its very powerfull.. However the moon he is standing on has a gravity.. so it could make the blood drop... even the pokeball could (but the gravity of a pokeball is veery very low..)
Btw the first part of the name made me think of the famous Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot .
And offcourse the dance by Jick: (jick's famous, his dance isnt)

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/5/2007 10:31
This is fantastic. Congrats on the two-year anniversary.
I'm pretty sure I see myself there, but I'm having a hard time finding more than 5 others... I hope you or someone else will post a little guide with all the names soon :)
(but in the mean time I'll just keep looking)

Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/5/2007 10:13

The sheer amount of detail jammed into this piece is amazing, as is the great execution of the style. Overall, awesomerrific stuff here.

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/5/2007 10:01
The blink is better now.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/5/2007 09:36

finally done :D

I wonder if people find at least half of the references :D! hahaaa
