Somehow I managed to draw this in a single day today. I'm very busy atm, cause I've just moved to a new home a couple of days ago, but the challenge topic was just too good to miss.
I also managed to miss the size restriction, so I had to crop the damn thing! GRRRR! I had to omit the giant rolling pin, which was pretty much the point and all, but you'll see it when I get around completing the big version.

Yeah, it look a bit like snake's famous work, but guess that's cause it looks like SOTC.

GRRRR again! Darned size limitations!

As suggested by Tomic, I replaced the old version with the full picture, 'cause Sedge said I could. Yay!
Thanks, both of you.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/15/2008 04:50
You got a point.
Hopefully the mod-squad won't mind.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 9/14/2008 16:00

wow, just realized that there's a fullsize version..

with the challenge being over since over a year now, i think noone would notice if you switch the two versions =)

Pok3' (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/13/2008 09:52
Just 4 words OMFG!!!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/7/2007 14:00
@sondre: Yeah, those were the days :D

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/7/2007 11:34

hehe. I was looking at this cool pic and I thought, well, here's someone who knows how to pixel, and it reminded me of the good old #pixel 30min compos. and THEN I saw the handle :)

Camera (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/26/2007 08:07

my god thats good :)

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/23/2007 20:04

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/18/2007 09:32

Gaius (or Gaias? xD) is so awesome that when I look at it i want to play SotC.

I dunno, but Wander is looking like a girl too o.O

Well, congrats on the win =)

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/16/2007 00:11
Congrats on the win!

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/15/2007 08:21
You are suppa rulla with a distorted stoola :D

Stitchy (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/12/2007 16:39
A rolling pin, huh?


Pretty interesting, even though I think Gaius is one of the ugliest Colossi. Great colors and good job with capturing the atmosphere of SotC. C:

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/12/2007 10:16
Oh, I didnt see the the full one before. For some reason I like it so much more. Great job.

BlingShyne2 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2007 08:15

Definetely my second favorite collosus, The sky dragon was better!

Rediculously awesome looking work! Faved!

And you also get all 3 of my votes.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/11/2007 03:31
Excellent work! Looks like that thing in her hand is a natural woman's weapon everywhere.=D

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/10/2007 18:01
This is my fav out of all of the he/she challenge.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/10/2007 17:28
Just lol'ed on a full version. That weapon adds a nice humor portion to the scene.

Zhou9 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/10/2007 10:29
DANG didn't see this before I voted.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/10/2007 08:02
@ptoing: They were darker in the screenshot I used as a reference for colors and atmosphere. Maybe they're not beacons after all? I'm gonna have to unpack my PS2 and take a peek :D

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/10/2007 06:53
Love it. Tho the lightbeacons in the background should be lighter than the sky :P

Vital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/10/2007 04:52
my master and guru of design and climate xD great piece buddy;)

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/9/2007 08:05

Big version looks great, not only that you finished the end of the roller but i think the open space helps alot, makes it seem bigger and scurrier.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/9/2007 00:24
Thanks for all the nice comments.
Ok, since I don't have internet in my new home yet, I missed the deadline to update this piece, but at least I finished the original big picture, and you can see it here:

(if you wish to see it zoomed, you can also see it on my blog /end of shameless plug)

It's got lots of minor tweaks, and BOTH FEET ANITALIASED! (thanks for pointing it out, jamon) Please feel free to have a look, as I'm much more satisfied with that one.
Don't let it bias your challenge voting, however.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/8/2007 20:31
Hahah!  Awesome!  Great pose and excellent palette!  It really has the muted, atmospheric feel of the game.  Congrats on the new place, as well!
