Love the MSX!

Phexion (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/16/2013 13:56

 I like the sharp detail in this piece and how it works by being symmetrical. Nice colours.

Sinsky (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 2/26/2011 02:23

Yep. This one is my personal classic. Just EPIC

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/1/2010 21:22

Very good!! 

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/17/2009 15:06


Really nice piece of work. And the way the lines are traced... quite a particular style here.

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 9/16/2009 11:20

hey thanks a lot! :) 

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 9/16/2009 10:33

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 9/13/2009 09:36

tormi1000 (Level 5 Sniper) @ 8/4/2009 20:02

Love the style! 

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 8/4/2009 18:28

Oh I see. I was unaware of the ange things. In that case, very nice indeed.  

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 8/4/2009 18:05

well, if the piece were made in keeping with the original MSX restrictions (please, check it out on wiki, hotliking here is not working properly), my answer would sound like this: what about flash vectors on an 80s machine? but since the limitations have been omitted, i can only say i totally respect your opinion. to each its own and i am pretty fine by this.

the paradox is, while making this piece i was aiming at making something you cant usually see being made with use of pixels, so i have restricted myself to mainly 45 and ~60 degree lines. :)


slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 8/4/2009 16:33

hmm.. I don't know if I like the style that much. It looks too much like flash vector graphics. In my opinion, pixel art is better when it uses styles no other art form can capture. 

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/4/2009 10:00

AWESOME technique. I'm really impressed. Only background IMHO needs small upgrade. Nevertheless it's stunning!

JosephSeraph (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/3/2009 06:32

Oh my! This is so smooth, and practically without antialiasing!

monotov (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/3/2009 05:54

Very well made!


Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/2/2009 19:20

I always really dig looking at geometric shapes when they're used for shading like this. My favorite parts have to be his beard, eyes, and that neat little detail on the green background.

Fantastic. :)

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/2/2009 10:17

Thats pretty cool,Man!

It's a pretty snazzy style there!

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 8/2/2009 09:50

Thanks for the warm reception, everyone!

It's hair.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 8/2/2009 08:39

Wow! Grrrreat work!

Only thing maybe, the hood, or hair... I can't decide which it is, and your wip on Pixellation didn't help.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/2/2009 08:03

Neat style :)

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 8/2/2009 07:01

Very nice. Love the style.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 8/2/2009 06:24

This is beautiful.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/2/2009 04:06

i really hate this style....but it still nice...

Celri (Level 4 Ensign) @ 8/2/2009 01:45

A lovey piece!  AMazing :)

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/2/2009 01:27

I wish the forms in the green background would suggest a bit more of a scene like a jungle or something behind him. Other than that I'm in total love with it :) Great colour- and stylistic choices all over the place.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/2/2009 00:41
