I've been ignoring/tweaking this for far too long. Calling this finished.
Thanks go out to forum members both here and at pixelation for helping push this piece in the right direction
edit: update on 7/5/10. original version found here
Cannot even decribe how amazing this is.
I understand when you get on our feet, is to encourage us, I know, since this is so perfect, good colors
hes toes are pillow shaded -1... no really amazing!
Thats just amazing!
Like the extraterrestrial ! Well pixed one more time !
this was made with mspaint, but I now use grafx2. keyboard shortcuts and better palette-control save tons of time
whoaaa, how do you make such pixelwork ? do you use photoshop pr sumthing ? i can't make such cool colors with paint, can you teach me ? :D
that's pretty sweet!
Very nice :)
Very detailed! I like this a lot. It gives me somewhat of an Earthworm Jim feel.
Nice one, only the planet (?) in the back looks strange.
The only thing I'm thinking here is where is all this growing from? I'm a big gardener so I keep on looking for some dirt...lol
This really has everything though. Great composition, awesome perspective, detail and color are outstanding. I just love the whole feel of this. It's a classic!!!
Loved watching this at Pixelation. Turned out great.
Gorgeous stuff, Cure.
I love the green!
I'm in love with this.
I remember the WIP thread. That was a great read.
Wonderful result. Loads of things to look at, yet it remains simple and elegant.
Inspiring on many levels, and the forum threads are very interesting to look at.
Excellent! I love him
This is an alien from a race of space pirates who seed ships, then allow the foliage to grow until it takes control of the ship like a parasite.
Thinking on it now, it probably would have made more sense for it to be on a planet, in a forest somewhere, more like you originally had. The vegetation growing around the interior of the space ship make it seem as if it had crashed some time ago, and the wilderness around it was creeping in.
The only story that really seems to work for me in this case is that the alien seems to have somehow managed to start it back up and fly away. Although the watering can may be respresentative of his love of the plants; perhaps he grew them there, or just cared for them as if they were his only friends. He looks like a plant monster/alien, anyway.
Anyways, just some brainstorming there, I know it's too late to change it. It looks lovely regardless.
Oooh it's finally finished. Excellent work, never though it'd work out this great!
It looks fantastic! I first saw it when you just had the little guy and where trying out different backgrounds, then lost track of it. The end result was well worth the wait.
Oh wow this is so beautiful ;U; I love the colors and how clean this looks.
rotfl I cannot believe to see this piece finished! great work at the end :) congrats
Awesome piece. Love the colors.
I was wondering when you were going to get this finished. Really good piece of work.
There is something about the way the space is used that feel as though there's something missing - but maybe it's just me.
Loved it even when there was a grass around :) Love the colors, composition, well, everything about it.
Ah, finally you put this up :)
Great work :D
Woah I remember seeing this song long ago, and when he was in the forest :P It's awesome to see it now though. Looks amazing :D
This is so damn inspiring, it really is gorgeous. I saw this on pixelation, the WIP was nicely done.
Saw this in the pixelation. For some reason, I've always liked the ship/environment, more than the character itself. I'm not sure if it's because they clash a bit(not by much, just a little), but it's just something I've noticed.
Awesome, I remember the WIP thread of this from ages ago :P
This is fantastic!
I love it :D
amaazing, should get 1st place :P
