 i love those colors!

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/9/2012 13:39

That is some original pixel style ! (Note: make sure to try to steal it later on :] )

Nate K (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/7/2012 14:39

Thanks for the feedback Super17.  I think I'll go back and fix it up after the contest( I assume I'm not supposed to edit a contest piece while judging is going on).

I really like the tree itself and the lightning, but it also seems unfinished to me. And the backgrounds seems kind of random. As Manupix said, it looked better at an earlier stage.

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/5/2012 14:04

Nice one! Strange that it doesn't look that polished but it really fits the scene!

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 1/5/2012 12:42

If this were just a tad more refined, it could be an awesome album cover

codewarrior (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/3/2012 15:28

simply fav'ed ;]

Thanks for the comments everyone!  I think there are a few areas I missed cleaning up.  I'm glad some of you like the rough style I usually like my pixel stuff chunky.(Also how I like my peanut butter )  But I think there are definitely areas I need to learn to refine.

I really love your colors and the dynamic-ness of it.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/2/2012 01:25

Actually it's not that rough, if you look closely, it's just too busy. Everything sticks out of everywhere but on the whole the piece is very deep and enchanting to watch. Good job and voted...

Merez (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/1/2012 15:08

Esta árvore me parece muito colorida e alegre, para estar morta. Mas enfim, o pixel-art está épico.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/1/2012 08:41

I agree the 'roughness' rather suits the foreground, but the bg is too busy/noisy and competes with the main subject matter. That's what needs polishing. Lovely palette.

Edit: the early bg versions in the wip are what I'd love to see!

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/1/2012 07:49

Awesome. I like that aliased "rough" style. Great colors, too!

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/1/2012 05:40

I liked the rough style and colors.

piiichan (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/1/2012 01:08

Hard to read what the piece is about without zooming in, but the palette is amazing!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 1/1/2012 00:45

I like this a lot and particularly the rough feel to it like Slym said.

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 12/31/2011 18:28

 I disagree, I think the rougher feel to it makes it more interesting of a style. It's a bold approach to pixel art. I like it a lot :D

Thug (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/31/2011 18:06

It looks pretty sick ,I like it very much :)

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 12/31/2011 17:38

(27 colors actually)

Great stuff. More awesome coloring from you.

And . .  "defunct" is putting it rather lightly don't you think?

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 12/31/2011 17:31

If you learned to polish things a bit more...your art could become awesome. 

Sublyme (Level 4 Murderer) @ 12/31/2011 16:50

this is amazing

Graindolium (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/31/2011 10:02

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 12/31/2011 09:43

 Nice palette! 

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 12/31/2011 09:15

This could do with some cleaning up.
