Totally inspired by Metal Slug serie.

I wish I could do the animation a bit faster.

But I hope you like it anyway.


Colors by Mirage

[Edit: 9/jul] I added some more animated stuff

I love the new animation!

Got my vote for sure.

That shading is incredible and with only 16 colors! Awesome!

Tunc (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 6/12/2009 00:25

 Awesome animation and everything^^ Porco Rosso anyone? XD

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 6/10/2009 18:07

OMG THIS IS AWESOME!!! Na minha opiniao vc e um dos melhores pixel artist aki.

evaanno (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/10/2009 00:07

omg !  u win :D

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/9/2009 21:08

now that's better ;3

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 6/9/2009 17:58

Haha, I love this. Very clever. Some animation suggestions (if you would like to continue working on it): I feel like he needs to rock a little bit back and forth, and perhaps some slight up and down motion to imply that it's actually flying. Also, he needs to blink, doesn't he? :P

Excellent work though, the colors are great especially!

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/9/2009 12:14

Improved indeed!

Looks like straightening its back will be risky business for that poor piggy..

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/9/2009 12:02

Awesome. Keep it.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/9/2009 11:57

Waaaaaaaaaaay improved!

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/9/2009 11:49

Do you think it's better now or should I cut the whole animation?

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/9/2009 01:21


jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/8/2009 15:31

One other reason to delete the flame...

...no bacon smell XD

Winzenhimer (Level 1 Private) @ 6/8/2009 15:29

Very nice! I love the over all colors and lighting, although the animation of the flame feels "tacked on", like Dumbo said drop it and I think we have a winner!

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/8/2009 15:27

indeed, very original... and the overall craftiness is very nice.

the animation is unnecesary though.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/8/2009 14:41

A huge kudos for immediately steering this challenge to a whole new direction of creativity, style and overall originality.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/8/2009 14:31

Lose the animation and you have my vote thus far!!!

Folk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/8/2009 14:06

this blinking/lighting thing looks strange. but i really like this pixel! ^^

Tpoe (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 6/8/2009 13:30

I don't know why but it reminds me of earthworm jim.

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/8/2009 13:25

Awesome work!
Yet I have to agree with Nomade. The animation is really unneccesary, especially if the light isn't coming form the black rocket. (where is it coming from then?)
Anyhoo, really quick, very fine entry for this week's competition.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/8/2009 12:48

Cara, mto foda! Ganhou com certeza.
Mas se eu removeria o fogo, ou pelo menos editava, não ficou mto combinando com o resto da figura

Mas tirando isso, mto foda cara. (:

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/8/2009 12:41

nice work!  

Nomade (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/8/2009 12:26

Reminds me tomic's works..

Anyway, the animation is useless, it doesn't add anything to the pic, like said before.

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 6/8/2009 12:07

Muito bom ! Boa sorte, meu voto for sure!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 6/8/2009 11:56

 I saw the prev and was like: Oh, this looks as if it could be a challenge entry! But not that quick. Right?

And then it was one :p

Nice and fast! And original and creative!

jok (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 6/8/2009 11:47

 my vote, for sure :)

Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/8/2009 11:47


thought tomic when I first saw it for some reason.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/8/2009 11:45

You're making it harder for me to win! Gawd!

You pumped this one out really fast, but it's pretty awesome.

But I think you should leave the animation bit out, unless you plan to do more with it, it just seems like more of an afterthought right now, and isn't really contributing to anything. (Not creating any light, not making him move, etc.)
