this is awesome, why did you stop posting your work?

Phexion (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/17/2013 09:51

Very good shading on the ear and neck, not overly keep on the background but its a good contrast of colours

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/14/2010 01:31

Thats some nice character. Good light situation, makes the piece interesting.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/13/2009 00:21

Nice!,really nice!! :D
<(^ ^)>

Jiang (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/29/2008 08:49
Vivid expression! !
Great work.

countach (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/5/2008 09:47
The face is so smooth. Congratulations.

circuscommando (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/23/2007 09:24
the overall effect is still nice.

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/25/2007 02:48
why its obvious

Hapiel (Level 11 Dumpster Fire) @ 11/25/2007 00:51

Show me!

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/23/2007 02:20
you could reduce these colors by a ton if you dithered some of it instead of loads of colours to blend them all

smartie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/22/2007 06:29

the shading is incredible!!

i like this goblin

Haze01 (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/18/2007 20:41

This is very nice.  The coloring and shading is quite exceptional.  The antialiasing is too, for the most part.

While neota feels the image lacks a focal point, I feel otherwise - the area of the eyes (eyebrows, eyes and nose) seems very strongly to be the focus of the image, regardless of the presence of antialiasing there.

The only problem I see is with the back of the neck.  It's my opinion that the antialiasing isn't done as effectively as elsewhere in the image, as the line making up the neck appears a bit jagged, even at the regular resolution.

Definitely a nice avatar.  I'm surprised that you only have three pieces in your gallery.  It will be nice to see more from you :-)

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 11/18/2007 14:04
Nah, that really could be just what I've said - it was on top of PJ for too long. Also human-like fantasy faces is not the best place for originality :)

zyndikate (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/18/2007 13:53

Never made him before, but I had a picture in my mind how I wanted it to be - I took an camera shot with the expression in mind and kinda looking from below..

It wouldnt surprise me if there is something simular since I saw it in my mind. Maybe some blizzard art or warhammer. Tell me if you find it :)

Im working on another piece, and somehow that also seems familiar.  I probably should work on the orginality :)

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 11/18/2007 13:41
Your character (or maybe I should say "you" :)) seems extremely familiar to me. I've read the comments and as far as I understand you are a general artist. So maybe you have a painted version of this character? I can swear I saw him already. But maybe I was just watching it for too long now :)

Agreed with other, doesn't look like an attempt, more like a common good work of a good pixelartist.

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 11/17/2007 14:47

It looks like a Gnome with out a hat. :D

I like his red nose and lips. Shading is excellent. BG is simple and good. 5/5

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/17/2007 05:22
sheer class - i love everything about this chara! really exceptional job.

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 11/16/2007 18:59
I love goblins and this one is seriously cute!

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 11/16/2007 16:30
excellent well. My only crit is that there doesn't seem to be a focal point -- it's all fuzzy.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/16/2007 11:47
Superb lighting.. looks amazing.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 11/16/2007 07:59
Welcome, zyndikate, your backgrounds that you have made in traditional has always amazed me, not to mention made me jealous . Pixel on, man, this rocks!
