Seriously, they're worse than chryssalids, they're FLOATING chryssalids :/ 

*edit* Guess it does require some in-game lore to understand why exactly this is scary... I'll try to explain:

  • The aquanaut who's just been impaled through the face will become a shambling, mindless zombie next turn, and when killed will spawn another tentaculat;
  • The guy who's shooting the torpedo is most probably going to miss, and even if he doesn't, it's not going to do much :D
  • The third one's pretty much panicking by now. Lose her turn, gets zombified.

 I like how you've used those yellows in contrast with the blues C:


Also I nearly forgot to add, that machine in the background reminds me of one from Thunderbirds :P

monotov (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/25/2012 10:39

nice use of the blue palete


reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/23/2012 14:50

good. nice landscape and perspective

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/22/2012 14:12

I definetely am in love with this. You kicked my procastination right in it's butt too! Cheers! 

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/19/2012 23:56

 the characters feel like they were pasted onto the background rather than integrated in it. perhaps because of the palette. I don't like the colors in general very much but everything else is good. you always do cool things with patterns and tiles. 

AtskaHeart (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/19/2012 18:09

 Awesome colors and pixels :)

WorldWithoutWords (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/16/2012 20:20

Love the colours.

mixlplix (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/16/2012 19:20

Wouldn't change a thing. Nice action poses..

wishuponapixel (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/15/2012 15:00

Love the bubbles in this, especially the ones coming out of the torpedo gun.

Muziak (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 10/14/2012 14:41

woahh excuse the language but to put it simply this is fucking cool. just everything about this is winning. you have my vote!

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/14/2012 04:49

Maybe it's frightening from the perspective of the monster

Uhh just read the description.

Btw the monster looks extremely cool. About the sub, maybe the front could use a redesign. I really don't remember how the subs in TFTD looked like though.

johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/14/2012 04:12

I like the rendering of the oxygen & "bubbles", nice palette ! Good work !

Killsick (Level 1 Private) @ 10/14/2012 02:25

 Very very nicely done! 

MrBeast (Level 3 Dryad) @ 10/13/2012 20:04

 With only one of those tentacel monsters and 3 armed soldiers it somehow doesn't really seems frightening.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/13/2012 18:50

agree with dawnbringer on this one. the more i come back and look at this, i think the bigger original was more fun to look at. with the larger version you really feel the size of the ocean. go big!

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 10/13/2012 18:48

Love this piece. It is AAed very well, especially those bubbles, looks very smooth :)

Dont (Level 6 Garbage) @ 10/13/2012 18:06

 I dont know 'bout that torpedo, things just jet that air when they are thrown from outside, but IDK, this might be a new technology or something. XD faved

Silva (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/13/2012 17:46

 Loved this piece, I have no complaints.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/13/2012 17:29

Hm-hm...I did like the tall, emptier version better...the craft and smaller canvas makes it feel a bit cramped & cluttered. 

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 10/13/2012 16:48

yay, a new mr mo piece.  It's fantastic.  And strays a bit from your usual style, but is still totally you.  You're awesome

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 10/13/2012 16:46

 You don't like the way it's drawn or the fact that it's there? :D

It's supposed to be a flying sub, the aliens' allpurpose transport. You know, X-COM lore and all.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/13/2012 16:19

Didnt liked the giant machine you added to the behind, dude.

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/13/2012 15:42

Nice one. love the colours and style of this piece. Faved

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/13/2012 15:20

impressive. fun to watch on the forums as well.
