Outstanding. Despite being as messy as it is, this has to be one of my top favorites on the site.

Magic i love that thing to the max.

Oh, sorry, didn't reply for so long. Yes, it's much better, could have some more AA here and there, but I thing it is good as it is. Hope you are working on a new piece like this

Love the crazy colors.  He looks like a pissed off Big Bird lol.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 2/4/2012 14:38

Nice monster design!! But I agree with the others that it feels a bit rough/unfinished in some spots..

Cool color experiment though :)

Terrify (Level 3 Chief) @ 2/2/2012 14:57

 Love it fav'd

UntamedPixel (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/2/2012 06:03

Really cool. I'd love to see the full scene.

Thanks everyone for the comments I appreciate them a lot!

I did an edit since I did submit this with a lot of mistakes, hopefully that fixes most of them.  Please leave criticism it's really helpful thanks!

@Super17:Thanks almost hahaha. Well, I'm working on learning to polish my pieces.  Let me know what you think with the edit thanks!

 great colors. would love to see you finish it/resolve some of the details a bit. composition does feel a bit off because of the crop

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 1/31/2012 16:20

You definitely would be one of my favorite artists on pixeljoint if you would polish some places more

Gavralcraw (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/31/2012 16:05

Great job!

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/31/2012 15:09

 looks kind of unfinish in someplaces! :(... but still love the colors! :D

Liza_Shush (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/31/2012 13:44

 How large was it, I wonder... 0_0

Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/31/2012 13:36

I love the design and the palette, but it definitely needs more cleaning up imo.

Sylon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/31/2012 12:06

Wow, this is awesome.  Love the stones, love the colors, love the cartoony water.  Well done!!

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/31/2012 10:54

its good but looks unfinished to me

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/31/2012 10:46

This looks like it has so much potential. But I think it's far from finished. Great work though.

4sko (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/31/2012 09:30

 it's fantastic!

Anoniguy (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/31/2012 07:26


The way his feathers go back from the snout and down the neck reminds me of Big Bird. It makes him seem like such a friendly monster!

Eldboll (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/31/2012 06:33

Awesome dude!

This is amazing. Wonderful, vibrant.

I'm stunned. Faved.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/30/2012 22:47

Not really polished, but very nice!

Only bit I dislike is the texture on the fish, everything else I love!

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/30/2012 19:52

 This is amazing. Your colors are always wonderful.

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 1/30/2012 19:32
