i think the original is one of the best sprites ever made.  It embodies pixel art- low colors that are distinguishable, the small palette is used expertly (specular highlight on nose, teeth, etc.), pixel perfect line art, and implying much more detail than is actually drawn.

The new one looks great. I saw a possum yesterday. I love them.

 Everytime I see your avatar one word comes to mind. Cute. And so now I'm finally faving it, as it deserves faving.

 Oh sorry :x I was thinking that was a rat.

But still awesome :D

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/3/2011 22:37

Não rato, é uno gambá. Obrigado pelo elogio.

Mistiqueshis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/3/2011 20:59

I'm not as much a fan of this new one, though it works better at higher resolutions. The tail looks as if it's in need of some AA, and the shading on the fur seems a bit harsh.

New one's my favorite out of the bunch. I just wanna tickle its belly :3

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/10/2011 12:14

Love how your latest work all have such high contrast. Definitely makes your pieces more stylized and sharp. Your old opossum was great, but this new one is stunning.

 Love this last one. Cute guy. Needs animation, though!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/10/2011 04:47

This new one is much sharper, I like it even better.

I needed to say this for you. I've done a draw of this piece for a work of arts in my school. Well, the result was a very beautiful 10 from my teacher. THANK YOU!

ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/27/2010 08:49

The dragon one is hillarious, great job!

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/16/2010 15:18

There is a picture of an opossum that looks exeactly like this, just in a slightly different position.

Exellent fur :)

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/27/2010 19:49

Kyosys (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/19/2009 12:33

That's pretty cool.

RafaelHenrique15 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/27/2009 10:51

006 (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/21/2009 18:49
I couldn't tell it was from you at first, but I love how you did the fur and the whiskers. Great job!

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 1/21/2009 12:20
Funny drawing. I love it ^_^

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/21/2009 11:28
ooo very nice look ... until watch him think that so light colour for coat is poor choice because have too big contrast and because coat maybe have less light from the muzzle. maybe some sort of yellow and a bit dark from current will be best.

his nozzle is impressive :)
