been doing so many life studies and drawings lately I forgot to submit this :F

thanks to out to everyone who gave me crits! you can check the pixelation thread here: other notable critiques go out to BAB, Shawn, Tyvon, Jar, and Rehugun. Also, many many many thanks to st0ven! =)

anyways, I'm fairly satisfied with this for now. crits are fine, but I've got lots to do in the coming weeks so I'm not sure I'll change it :/

I was inspired by iLKke's 'Clockwork Whistler' style on this one, so I hope you like!~

 Great job.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/17/2009 14:05

haha! but then the name wouldn't be as catchy ;) thanks!

Aha, monthly number 5, good job. Technically though, if this scene is on the moon it's not "moonlit", like when the moon reflects light at earth. Maybe it's earth-lit, if the earth is reflective like the moon. With all of our water I'd think it would be.

 Nice to see this finally uploaded! :D

Nice colours, as per usual, It's nice to see a pastellier explosion.


Wet Paint (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/7/2009 19:13

 It could use some work in areas like the legs and craters, but its above average.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/7/2009 17:25

It's spectacular!

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/5/2009 03:16

looks like kid book where they cut everything out of colored paper. nice look but not my cup of tea. i like the little alien. isn't the moon sand like (not like carefully laid garden path)

CeeY (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2009 11:19

I liked it when you had the nebula clouds in the background, but I guess this is how you wanted it. Nice job.

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/3/2009 04:02

Very nice red lasers and explosions.

The flash light isn't so pleasant, the perpective is off and the astronauts quite clumsy... Could have been worked more.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/3/2009 01:10

I reallly don't like the leg popping out on the left of the image. It doesn't match the rest in design or style.

That said, the rest of the piece is very good. Especially the tripod on the right.

MarthisMarth (Level 1 Intern) @ 10/2/2009 19:25

Composition bores me, but I do like the beams very much.

NinSpriterx (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/2/2009 13:31

I remember this like... a year ago.

crazy70 (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/2/2009 13:15

Looks amazing! faved

Mozaik (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2009 09:22

Great great great. Moons inferno. Houston, we have a problem....


WiZkiD (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2009 05:35

Great composition! 

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/2/2009 02:59

Very nice pixeling in places. Love the beams!

The composition is a bit meh, tho.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/1/2009 22:32

While I like the colors and textures, the overall composition seems a little off: my eye keeps jumping to the bottom of the piece and staying there.

Melting Phoenix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/1/2009 21:14

Epic job, man! 

DeProgrammer (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/1/2009 20:07

Heh. That's pretty epic. Looks great.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/1/2009 20:02

"War of the Worlds 2 - Tom Cruise bites the dust" :) Cool stuff...and since it's "final" perhaps I shouldn't mention that I can't help thinking that a slightly different tint to the moonsurface might help separating it from the machines...if one would like that!?

Destiny (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/1/2009 19:58

I feel there is quite a bit more that could have been done to this, but it looks great as is. Good job Dex

Tuna Unleashed (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/1/2009 19:50

its definitely my favourite piece you've submitted but it still feels lacking. a more dynamic angle would've done wonders and the space dude seems too noodly and cartoony

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 10/1/2009 18:55

 I'm noticing improvement with each piece you submit, keep it up. 

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/1/2009 18:42

Cool piece, def reminds me of that piece from iLKke. There are a couple things I could crit, but it definitely looks finished, and you're prolly done with it. Sorry I wasn't at pixelation while you were ^^ The gray palette rocks.

Tyvon (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/1/2009 18:42

[insert comment here]

rehugun (Level 5 Sniper) @ 10/1/2009 18:41

Looks awesome man great job, you may leget the things I said but consider it for next time bud.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/1/2009 18:38

Glad you finally submitted this. It came a long way since it's first version on the forums.

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/1/2009 18:25



Cool pixel, Dex. I like the rocks.

darkspines35 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/1/2009 18:24
