Looks perty good !

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/6/2012 12:33

The parents look so creepy, awesome work as always

carrion (Level 6 Made) @ 8/24/2012 04:27

 wow. another example of a pixel-piece tht is technically briliant and tell the story.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/15/2010 20:03

That violin is amazing

BeboTheBum (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2009 23:02

Wonderful, love the idea of it

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 5/10/2009 23:59

Another ex-violin player here too, feeling this piece. Great as always.

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 11/17/2007 07:20
oh this is fantastic Fool. Brilliant work!!!!

DevonR (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/3/2007 18:45

I like the shading of the glasses, very good. The hand at the top middle seems to be "cut off", there isn't an arm attached to it, if the texture was smoothed out more, then it wouldn't matter.

Sorry if I am being more "picky" than other people, but I'm sure you want some feedback which includes some critisism!

DeProgrammer (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/27/2007 11:40
All I can say is "sheerly amazing." I could mistake it for Pixar work. :)

konix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/19/2007 12:39
Great work. I think you're easily the most consistently impressive pixel artist on this site.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/18/2007 20:48
"Rich city folk and them damn parenting!"

DarkfalzX (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/18/2007 19:57
Fool: Look at Henk Nieborg. Despite the fact that he absolutely, positively sucks donkey bars at game design, Misadventures of Flink and Lomax are quite possibly two most beautiful games ever created... even if they both are a total chore to play. Just grab whatever elements work best from all your favorite games, stir, pour over ice...

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 10/17/2007 20:03
you are among those who make pixel art legitimate.  there is little about this that is not masterful (would love to see a little bit of mixing lights and reflections as spotlights make this happen in crazymounts)

Zhou9 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/16/2007 18:46

I get it.


I love playing the violin though.

Fluffy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/16/2007 14:50
this is so true. Very nice peace love the color choice. I got forced into playing the violin too..

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 10/16/2007 07:13
Stop flooding my fav list, you bastard :P

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/15/2007 16:18
Fantastic. You should illustrate children's books fool.

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/15/2007 14:13
This is a really awesome idea and very well executed. I love the smooth shading and colouring. :) 5/5 +fav, Well done!

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/15/2007 10:34
Awesome idea! And it's great!

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/15/2007 10:33

I love this, and it's so true.  My roommate teaches kids ice skating and most of them are forced into it because their parents are filthy rich and have nothing better to do than terrorize their children into becoming champions of something.  Mostly because the parents were never able to accomplish anything in their own lifetime.  It's sad because they made the kids so nervous by arguing at the last competition that all the kids ended up failing miserably.  Just goes to show you that you can't force a lifestyle.  It has to come from within. 

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/15/2007 09:23
This IS my favorite piece from you!!! Keep these delicious works coming...

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 10/15/2007 06:58
I hate oneliners myself, but what else can I say then: OMG! :)

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/14/2007 14:02
Finally--your luthier and pixel skills combined!
As always, this is a lovely piece, and I admire how you've done the lighting, it all works so well to convey your message

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/13/2007 09:44
Thank you very much, guys, for the comments.=)

DarkfalzX, yeah, i've got same filling looking on  other artist's work - including yours =D, somehow i don't like my pictures with a little exceptions. Perhaps, productivity is not something I care about. Games, as i recently figured, is not about graphics, wich made me cry - i'm totaly not a game designer.

Jal, its working both ways allright, since connection has been made.The rest depends on personal power.=) I'm watching these kids 8 hours daily for over 15 years and eventually figured - no matter how hard is parent's effort to write their liitle baby's future,  very little of us are doing what we were trained for. None of the people I know.=)

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/13/2007 04:17
excellent....just excellent...!

DNO (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/13/2007 03:28
wow i love it, great idea and faultless pixeling! fave'd

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/12/2007 21:56
Oh man, did you ever mess up on this. Its the other way around : /

DarkfalzX (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/12/2007 17:31
Absolutely amazing. The frequency with which you unleash your awesome on this site is both, spectacular and depressing: )
Depressing, because there is no way in hell I will ever be as productive.. or good.

*bowing to the pixel master*

Make a game sometime! Please!

keisukeyui (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/12/2007 16:10
Very powerful imagery.  This happens all too often, I'm afraid.

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/12/2007 12:14
Love the pixelling and the concept!

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/12/2007 11:52

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/12/2007 10:47
The true meaning of parenting.

Platnium (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/12/2007 10:11
The string almost looks like fishing, you can hardly see it. but it looks very good 5/5.

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/12/2007 09:48
This is great! The only things that looks like it needs some more work is the strings and the shoes. Yes, I know that thin lines can be a pain in the butt to do...

Dutrho (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/12/2007 08:07
Tottaly great concept and awsome delivery 5 and faved! :)

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/12/2007 07:36
You need to start making pieces I don't like, otherwise I'm going to have to favorite everything in your gallery.

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/12/2007 07:11

Great Idea! Flawless as always.

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/12/2007 05:26
Loving this.
