Wanted to do more but was getting stuck on designs. Maybe I'll try some jungle/forest/cave/etc influenced critters in the future.

Anyway, thanks go out to the forums here and at pixelation for design ideas and crits.

Love this one! Nice backlight and really awesome shading. There's some really sick characters (the first one for instance)...

Spinachos (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/2/2016 08:48

Wow, these guys are cool : ) 

Splurge (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/8/2015 05:07

Jeremy H (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/5/2012 12:56

brilliant set !

Lordz (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/21/2012 12:42

 They look like guys from Innsmouth!   

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/9/2012 01:23

Very Lovecraftian nice job :)

codewarrior (Level 1 Seaman) @ 12/15/2011 06:09

 and once again: totally dig your sense for colors.

david lunch (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/28/2011 00:51

I love the colors. Great stuff.

Hylst (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 8/5/2011 09:28

 WOOOWWWHH !!  Pro looking Sprites / monsters !   Really excellent !

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/5/2010 16:26

 Great palette work, great designs, and super smooth pixelling. I really like the sense of texture.

jaumeAV (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/16/2010 12:27

The technique here is outstanding! this is so well coloured...

my hat off!

Biggs (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/4/2010 20:46

Saw these on Pixelation a few months ago. These are fantastic, inspirational, even. Great to see them all finished.

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 11/3/2010 11:19

These are all very nice. Love the somewhat loose but still tight style. You got a lot better the last few years :)

Also they work nicer without the boxes around them. 

FraGMarE (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 11/2/2010 08:43

 I like the cthulhu looking guy on the first row, second from the left because he looks like he's closing a deal on a used car lol  :p

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 11/2/2010 07:51

I saw this over at Pixelation and is very amazing! The Eel is still lacking without the tail I feel but still Epic all round!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/2/2010 04:02

Very nice.

I get the impression the colors here are considerably darker and more muted than your usual.

Lexou Duck (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/2/2010 00:43

2nd guy on 2nd Row rules.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/1/2010 15:02

 Slimy. I love them.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/1/2010 14:35

@Photocopier: good catch! glad you noticed

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 11/1/2010 14:19

First and second are me favs here. They are all wonderful though mate!

Faved again!

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/1/2010 14:11

Nagol The Destroyer in his third piece? Nice!

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/1/2010 14:08

 Disgustingly beautiful!!! very slimy, love it :)

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/1/2010 12:12

Amazing /b/ro.

kevink (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/1/2010 11:25

1 word. hot.

SwapBrain (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/1/2010 09:36

I don't know if I said it in as many words as before, but: well done - your effort shows here and it obviously paid off!

EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 11/1/2010 08:51

Wow, I didn't think you would continue this perfect work!

I can see a great game with them!

I just  think the third isn't "of their group".

Cilein (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/1/2010 08:13

(1,1), (2,1),(2,3),(2,4),(3,1),(3,2) are my favourites, which is half of them haha, awesome collection and imagination cure, really fantastic art!

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/1/2010 06:45

@Zweckform: Not anytime soon. I was thinking I could use them as sprites in a mini-rpg a friend and I wanted to make, so If that ever materialized then they'd have an underwater-y background.

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 11/1/2010 03:05

Very slimey!!! These are very well made. The third character seems a little out of place amongst the rest, but that may be just due to seeing more armour and less slime.

Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/1/2010 03:00

wow... nuff said!

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/1/2010 02:48

 Shit fuck hell! These are some of the most  orginial creations I've seen in this entire place. Just amazing!

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 11/1/2010 02:04

i've seen this in wip on pixelation,it's amazing *-* 

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/1/2010 00:42

Like it. They got a certain air around them, do plan to give them some environment under the sea ?

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/31/2010 22:08

So I did! Fixed, thanks

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/31/2010 22:05

All the designs are very well-done. I especially like the colors and shading style you used. Good work!

Buddy90 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/31/2010 22:02

Beautiful. Absolutely amazing. Also, I think you left that white cross on monster 2 in the second row on his arm.
