I'm sure you will recognize this creature... It's Amaya's Balrog !


I choosed him because of his name, I remember a monster nammed like that in "The Lord of the Ring".


He's actually the most fantastic creature in the world, some people said that in fact he's just a giant toaster, but i's obviously a big mistake.




Oh, by the way, HUZZAH ! 

(and sorry for my bad english...)

This is awesome! I love the animation where he shoots the ball! The little sparks and effects you add to it really finish it, I wish I could do that!

shame on me for not commenting on this - I love cavestory, and balrog is a precious lil soap, and you did an awesome job in covering his essence.

Not my personal choice but I had a feeling that it would end up in the winning trio. Still, the animation is great :D 

Suzukiai (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 7/2/2010 11:49

Thanks everyone !


I didn't ripped the original sprite if it's what you mean, I just opened my internet browser and searched a picture of Balrog and then zoomed, then I opened my program and beginned to drawn... 


Also, I understand you don't like this piece, but you said that I only have done some 'minor chande and called it finished'... I actually took a big time making the animation etc, it's not very kind of your to said that I have done some bad in no more than ten minutes. 


But look, I did a new version, just for you.

Cute!  It's got my vote. 

Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) @ 6/30/2010 17:02

The preview pic is great, but the detail pic...It just looks like you took the original sprite of him, put him on the base, threw in a soccerball with a few minor changes, and called it finished. :/

Oh, and, according to Pixel himself, Balrog is a bar of soap. o 3o


EDIT: Hmm...Well, after actually watching it closer, there's a lot bigger changes to it. well, my only complaint is that the sprite of Balrog isn't really changed from the original. :/

His name doesn't come from LotR, it comes from Street Fighter.

 Dude... there were a lot of great entries, but I had to vote for Balrog XDDD


Maru (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/28/2010 05:57

 Very cute! I love this animation (^^)

Suzukiai (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 6/27/2010 10:20

Aw, for the background I'm late, but maybe I'll edit it after the contest...

[Well, maybe.] 

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/27/2010 07:56

Superb animation

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 6/27/2010 05:07

Great and cute anim! <3

You might edit the background to make it work better with your colors, though.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 6/26/2010 21:59

Suzukiai (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 6/26/2010 08:07

My first idea was to make him a clown nose, but it was'nt really... huh.  


I'm going to edit that now ! 

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/26/2010 08:05
