"Called “Alexandre” on the French deck, probably after Alexander the Great. He holds a scepter in one hand, with a shield (?) just below it. He faces forward, a little to the right. On the English deck, he holds a sword in his hand, with an imperial orb just beside it (seemingly floating in air). He faces forward, a little to the left."

I'll try to add some animation later...
Hope you like.

beautiful work 

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/28/2010 15:52

I was trying to think of something smart-assy to say like "Shouldn't he have a club, not a sward," but that doesn't make any sense at all because the guy on the card...  The art looks great  XD

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/25/2009 13:21

Parabens jinn! Congratz! you deserve it

AlexHW (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/21/2009 14:27

bleh, weird challenge details.. oh wells

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 5/21/2009 12:57

I Think you didn't saw the cards on the reference list.

Anyway, i'm glad you like the art itself.

AlexHW (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/21/2009 12:50

doesnt make me think of it as a 'clubs' representation.. just looks like a king. thus no vote here. good art though.

crisis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/21/2009 11:22

The colors on this are just great. +1 Vote!

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/20/2009 17:09

you got my vote...

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/19/2009 04:31

 i wanna go clubbin with king

Nether (Level 5 NES) @ 5/18/2009 01:45

Good choice in colors and very nice character design. Makes the king look very badass.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 5/17/2009 22:48

best in your gallery, imo. love it.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/15/2009 14:38

Not telling you to change anything, I do like it a lot. I ws just sayin' cuz the 'club' isn't clear.

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 5/15/2009 11:30

But, as you can see here, Jal, all those cards have the same amount of red.

I think the "suit" of the card don't interferes in the colors of the char.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/15/2009 09:19

I love this sprite but have a problem with it being sooooooo red because 'clubs' are black cards.

hyperbear (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/14/2009 17:57

Very Fire Emblem-esque. Great job!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/14/2009 17:00

I love this piece on it's own. But I don't read "king of clubs" for some reason. Great piece though!!!

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 5/14/2009 16:42

Thanks a lot for all the comments and favs!
 I'm really glad that you like! 

@Stickman He's holding both of them,
I was planing to do the shield like Shiryu's one. [x] [x]

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/14/2009 16:09

This is a great entry. You're definitely the front runner at the moment. Morganne's is good, but too simplistic compared to this. It shows what great stuff can be made with such little available to you

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/14/2009 15:12

Reminds me of WoW for some reason. Great job

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/14/2009 13:49

That's nice. Is his hand holding the sword or shield? Nice colours by the way:)

Death-Auron (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/14/2009 13:45

ya, got my vote for sure, lovable colors and the desgin, he looks imponing!. i even though on actually entering this one....

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/14/2009 13:43

Well, this pushes my idea down the drain ;3 Great work, best one so far!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 5/14/2009 13:18

 Ah, finally some great PIXEL work from you. Where every pixel really does count and is thought about! This is what I love, and you seem to master as well Jinn!

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 5/14/2009 13:00

I like it a lot - nice details!

MFlanaga (Level 4 Ensign) @ 5/14/2009 12:51

6 pts! That is very very nice...

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/14/2009 12:32

Foda cara!

Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/14/2009 12:28
