 This is really great, you're good at composition, which is something I think a lot of pixel artists don't think about. Overall palette  is nice too.

 Nice, i liked the colors

o hey this is really cool ^^!

 Great picture! Really good work on the colours and lighting. And 320x200x16 is the format favoured by the true gentlemen of course ;)

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 5/15/2013 10:03

The dark side colors are maybe a bit red and saturated for shadows; still, a great image! And it always warms my heart when bitmap restrictions are honored :) 

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/15/2013 02:59

Jamon, this is great! Wonderful colors!

The cropping does make the sides look a bit unfinished though, why not extend the rocks beyond the border as well?
And what is with the partial highlight on the left knee? Could be a shadow from the arm, but it does not look very natural.

But those are just silly nitpicks. I love the sun rays, the colors (again), the wings with their beautiful horizontal lines and the tiny rocks in the front with their shadows.

 @philippejugnet  initialy picture was much whider ( there was more of hils left and right ) but i croped it ;)

Thank you all for comments ;)

Nevercreature (Level 9 Vice President) @ 5/14/2013 21:43

16 colors!! Absolutely great

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/14/2013 17:05

 mind blowing ² I felt so inspired to do something like this, but instead I decided to mess up with it a bit :) I think the picture looks cropped ( more then intentionally ) and I think you could had abused more perspective-wise ( ? ). so here is an edit to show my ideas ( its kinda messed though )

 you never fail to impress me :)

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/14/2013 11:17

 Mind blowing. I really like how did the sky at the back.

next time you should send it as remote entry for some demoscene party

A2J2TIWARI (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/11/2013 22:19

 Wow this is great! The character looks so vibrant and dynamic!

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/11/2013 13:15

 Nicely done! I especially like the colors. Always good to see stuff from you. 

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/11/2013 04:53

Gotta love those dithering patterns.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/11/2013 02:40

Oh! tnx.. Tomic.. just skiped 8/ rays on right... fixed now... About rays on left... i know that they need to be more transparent - but color combination in that part is limited only on 3-4 colors ;) 

It's easy to add more colors =) ... but fun is in 16 ;)

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/11/2013 02:20

sweetness! great to see something new, has been very silent the last two years :)

looove the wings + head and background. only nitpick are the rays of light: the 2 right ones and the one on the left could be a bit more translucent (like the 3 other ones on the left), also why do they disappear behind the rocks on the right? :)

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/10/2013 19:16

This is brilliant. Some very nice colours and shading.

Welcome back.

helio (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/10/2013 17:03

 This is awesome!!

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/10/2013 15:48

 Aw man, 16 colors! This is awsome!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/10/2013 15:46

Christoballs (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/10/2013 15:07
