Well done!

Luneder (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/10/2014 22:08

a lot of it looks great just need to fix that arm even with forshortening that arm need to be double the size. Also on his backside there is this black shadow outline that doesn't agree with those suns behind him, try a rim light instead.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/3/2013 17:58

The image is as old as Hall of fame itself I think :) Thats why some of my old pieces are so high in there.
I agree with you this isnt perfect (has some flaws) and there are much better pieces in HOL

jaumeAV (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/3/2013 17:41

is this really in the hall of fame??

don't mean to be a hater, not my style... but i don't agree this should be so praised. The proportions are bad, the shading isn't that good either, the composition and pose aren't that good either..

compare it to the rest of hall of fame pieces, and you will see the difference.

definitely a good start, but it needs a lot of work.

It's really nicely done, but to me the pose looks strange. Why is he stooping over? Why is his left arm so small? But the shading and use of color is perfect.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/8/2010 19:12

This is SO perfect, I love the background

Jocher (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/19/2009 00:03

 nice, really nice....

xx-Zero-xx (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/13/2008 23:29
Really awesome man... its so smooth =D

Sokota (Level 1 Private) @ 8/13/2008 23:59
Good work there! The left hand does look smaller. Love the weapon and stuff! Great job conveying the image! Kudos!


molloyy (Level 2 Dealer) @ 5/26/2008 20:59
This is pretty great.  =)

Expand (Level 3 Stalker) @ 5/24/2008 23:51
Love it   

Badbrad51 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/3/2008 15:17
Kinda bored with this, kinda plain but really good

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/1/2008 22:41
Gave it a 5. It's much better than I can do. But I am 12 and most people herea re much older than me so I guess I shouldn't feel so bad.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/14/2007 05:39
Me four! :-) But it reminds me more of the Starship Troopers. The pixel itself is just brilliant! Except the little smaller left hand, the rest is truly a masterpiece! I like his pose and the facial expression, just like if he wanted to say: "What the fu** is this?"

Pabloavvocato (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/13/2007 20:43
me three                                                

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/12/2007 04:26

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/21/2007 21:45
Great shading and textures!

Imp (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/11/2007 08:33
looks really awesome!

rZool (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/8/2006 05:38
Cool ^^ I agree with sedgemonkey, left arm seems to be too small ... or maybe it's just perspective ?! Anyway, I love it !!

ChrisoOo (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 9/23/2006 22:56
That shading is crazy stuff! NICE MAN!

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/9/2006 03:17
I'm sorry :
A lot colors but it is very pretty.

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/9/2006 02:37
Dużo kolorów ale jest bardzo ładne.

M@lone (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/7/2006 08:35
Nice!  It makes me want to go play Half Life 2. 

ice9 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/8/2006 04:47
Beautiful artwork as usual, from u. And it's great also cos it reminds me of Body Blows on Amiga, from team17  :)

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 4/8/2006 07:19
Amazing, I love the armour, and it's highlights!

Metalheaded_Zombie (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 3/22/2006 12:30

This is one of the most amazing pieces I've ever seen on this site .( I am just a newb but w/e)

Nomade (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/4/2006 08:52
Amazing Amazing amazing!! The colors.. dithering.. AA.. everything is awesome! Loved it.

Sensei (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 8/12/2005 10:12
 I like the design of the clothes and your dithering. And compo is good too imo.

Zoomrix (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/11/2005 23:02
I love the style of this piece. But it looks like he's just been shot.  Good job.

spiv (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/24/2005 13:46
Pixels are perfect! But perspective is strange :/

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/1/2005 11:16
  Sweet, love the suns in the BG and the out line of the guy, really brings him out :). Very well done ^_^

Monkey_man (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/14/2005 13:03
how u put so much detail into it i do not know but this is definatley going in my favorites

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/11/2005 02:49
 Your shading is absolutely STUNNING! The left arm is too small and I would refine the face though.

Slop'n (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/10/2005 23:13
This is nothing wrong at all. I like it all the way.

finite (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/10/2005 17:18
Sweet work here, awesome shading and design. The gradient in the background does irritate me a bit, but I'm not that much of a pixel purist to mark you down for it. ;)

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/10/2005 13:10

Your shading is always really tight.  The left arm of the soldier does look a smidge too small, but other than that it looks fantastic.
