This is portraits of my versions of the Wonder Boy forms from the game Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap.
This was may favorite game for a very very long time and is to me the best game of the 8-bit era.

I hope the transparent background works for what ever color theam you'r using.

The smaller sprites of each form is direktly from the game, just to show the original look of them. Of course if they bother somone I will remove them, but the game is 20 years old and I don't think who ever made them do mind, or that there would be any leagal issues.

Congratulations on winning the 5th price.
Real, clean pixelart is always awesome.

i like this concept. Cool work. You might wanna do a series and end up exposing your work in a gallery.

AlexHW (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/15/2009 06:34

wowz, this is pure wickedness.. only gripe i'd have is with the fish thing, i believe it's pose could be better, it doesnt share the same 3 dimensional qualities as the others. The dragon, hawk, and mouse are the best of the 6, i'm lovin them.

My favourite game :)

I really like em except the dragon one, looks too much like american godzilla for my taste.

look's like its simple but it's really cool, i love it

alones (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/22/2009 17:59

I so fuckin love this style. And that game was awesome. Here in Brazil it was launched for SMS under the title 'Turma da Monica' (Monica's Gang), a 'official' hacked version. Give it a try later.

These portraits are way more serious looking than the sprites. I approve :P

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/18/2009 22:19

I LOVE RAT PEOPLE. The rat guy is definitely my favorite.

The lizard's chin bothers me XD

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/18/2009 21:13

 woah!... excelente!!!... i like all the portraits, specially the mouse and the lizzard!... i really love it...
A suggest. maybe you should move down a little bit the eagle, cuz the head is about to touch the limit (i mean the background limit), and that create tension in the composition. And its looks like it have a little of tension in the composition. And another suggest, try to add a pattern background to add more interest in each piece  :DDDDDDDD.

I really love the shadows and the face/expresion of each character, except the face of the guy with the green hair. (well i really dont know this game, but is just my opinion).

Good job man :DD... i want moooarrr :XX

Reminds me of the King of Fighters portraits. Really nice. My only issue is that wonder boy's hair looks kind of pillowy.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/18/2009 19:45

These are amazing, the mouse/bird are my fav's.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/18/2009 13:42

Proper gorgeous.


The Hu-Man form gives me a slightly feminine vibe. Not sure what it is exactly.

Germille (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/18/2009 12:53

completely awesome

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/18/2009 10:27

The eagle.

robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/18/2009 02:00

This is amazing ! each of this heads is great !

Pukeko (Level 2 Dealer) @ 4/18/2009 00:05

 They are all pretty awesome! Nice shading style you've got there.

skooba-dude (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 4/17/2009 21:08

WOW. Very nice shading. I think there should be more of a difference between the lions head and his mane though.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/16/2009 14:58

Spectacular work on the mouse and lion:)

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/16/2009 14:01

Wonderful stylish drawings! I vagually remember I played some things on emulators, but I can not remember there were more forms o.O

Oh well, other games were more interesting to me at those times ^^

MdNight17 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/16/2009 12:38

They look great my favorite is the mouse, I believe that second color dividng the dark hue to the light hue isnt really necessary it would look much better without it

God_Is_Evil (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/16/2009 09:45

looks sweet!!


iRey (Level 1 Private) @ 4/16/2009 09:24
