I got interested in pixel art some time ago and I thought I'd register here :) Random piece. I just love drawing monsters.

Gosh, sorry for the late reply.

Your color choice is definitely less... cartoony than mine. Looks really nice :)
I assume you're going to edit it further? (you've probably already done that since it's 15th today)
Great to hear you're having fun ;)

general structure, colors et al are great, but the actual pixelwork remains unrefined. would love to see the noise and banding removed, clusters optimized, etc. cool creature though

Yes, I thought in Zabimaru, at first hehe, Otherwise good work, continue!

Well, after a bit I kinda stopped editing for teaching and just went because I found it interesting and fun.

As evident, I messed with the colors some. The bone-color shift might have been unncessary(yours would probably function just as well, I just decided to mess with it. Also, I added 1 color) but the color change on the fur(? Feathers more likely I suppose) is more needed. I only touched the shading on the bones so far, but mostly my point is just to take your work and refine it, smoothing curves and transitions and defining the edges more smoothly.

Overall, mine here is just a different version, and this is a really fun piece to work on. Nice job again.

Nice palette.

Raironu (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/8/2011 10:05

 Sure, go ahead. I'm curious what you'll change.

I actually like the curved bones. If anything, the shapes of the skull could be a little exaggerated to match. Very stylish.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 7/7/2011 10:16

I think just a little more work and this would be outstanding.

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 7/6/2011 15:13

That's cool then. It still looks a little warped to me, but chalk that up to personal vision.

Hey, would you mind if I made an edit? Not to claim as mine or anything, just as practice(and maybe to show you some areas to improve, I know *I* learn better visually than through text).

Raironu (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/5/2011 13:56

Thank you for your feedback. I'll try to work on AA next time. As for the bones, I left them that way intentionally - they fit into the overall image of the creature, at least for me :)

Freakin' cool skeleton. Love it, fav it.

Mirre (Level 8 Jellyfish) @ 7/5/2011 08:46

This is really nice! I like the skull alot.

Sai (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/5/2011 07:01

Personally, I think that brightest orange shade is a bit too bright even after being dithered.

huhu ^,^

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/5/2011 05:37

Yeah that was the first thing that jumped to my mind as well. Though it was fanart.

snoop755 (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/5/2011 03:16

its realy looks like zabimaro!

great job!

pixer (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/5/2011 03:07

great ! it makes me think about Zabimaru of Bleach manga:

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 7/5/2011 00:21

This is a really awesome monster. Its hard to find people who can draw something that actually looks scary. I was always scared of shit with lots of feathers as a kid. Like big bird haha. The feathers are great, I just wish you would AA this guy... & the colors are fantastic.

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 7/4/2011 18:02

Very nice, I like it a lot. A couple notes to work on with are that the tibia/fibula look way too curved, like they're rubber instead of bone, and the two true reds could use some more contrast.

Something I, in general, really like is the colors. The bone colors are perfect(I just might borrow them for a piece myself!) and the contrast of them and the high-saturation reds make it really pop. You also seem to, as a whole, have a good grasp on the general pixel techniques, though it could use much more anti-aliasing to smooth out a few edges.

All in all, I'd love to see more of your work :)
