Darth Mandarab, it is not really a crock, just some animal with made up anatomy. Here, I've chage a title to avoid confusions=)

Scribblette (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/23/2009 06:33

You make me cry. I want a step by step guide to being anywhere near that good. *sob*

minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 6/23/2009 06:30

user (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/23/2009 06:26

 Outstanding work 

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 6/23/2009 06:15

Fool strikes again!

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/23/2009 06:10

Excellent work Fool!  I am not certain I like it better than your ISO castle (but it's a close thing).

I'm no expert on Crocodillian anatomy but the back arm (in shadow) feels a bit out of proportion to me .. but I stress it's just a 'bit' :)  Magnificent use of only 18 colors.

Jompe71 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2009 06:09

Ugh! Watch my pacemaker (going wild with stuff like this)...

Streety (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/23/2009 05:48

Crazy good as usual. Your work is very inspiring.

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2009 05:33

Hooooly shit...18 colours.

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/23/2009 05:00

what all the others said, including holy shit and OMFG!!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 6/23/2009 05:00

No comment, though I could do nitpicking on volumes of some things like the tower at the front (plasticity) or sharpness on some other objects

but I guess you couldn't be assed with fixing so many details haha

really 18 colors?

Nice work and great amphibial anatomy

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/23/2009 04:43

 hooooolllleeeyyyyyy shit.

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 6/23/2009 04:41

fantasy in my eyes :)

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 6/23/2009 04:35

Also you finished it extremely fast.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 6/23/2009 04:34

Amazing how you can change your mind and repixel a huge almost-ready-looking part of a picture. There should be some kind of trick :)

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/23/2009 04:22

Where the hell do you get these ideas from? :O


LokiF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2009 02:43

Definitely a favorite... I dunno what to say other than that this is epic.


The preview does this no justice. :[

Master-pt (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/23/2009 02:41

I adore Fool's themes and compositions on his work =D

Damian (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/23/2009 02:35

WTF!!! This is so much better than your ISO castle. No words to eplain how cool this darn thing is. 
This is why I love pixel art.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/23/2009 02:32

You did that in two hours? Jeebus!

Pretty much flawless to my eyes, but the back-most layer, the faded cliff/mountains on the upper right looks out of perspective to me. Also the colours don't quite convince me, not blue enough maybe?

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/23/2009 02:30

 well goooooodddamn.


Nice work!
