I took one of a whole bunch of different fossil sketches I had done a little whole ago for a spin in Grafx2. Took way longer than anticipated but in return it turned out a lot more detailed than I had imagined in advance :D Hope y'all like it.

Thank you! I never played this game so I had to look it up. Seems that this boss is a nautilus. I'm no expert on the matter but I believe ammonites, nautiluses, etc are basically variations of the same kind of thing. To put it in highly scientific terms: a squid in a shell :D While many of these have been extinct for quite some time, nautiluses still exist. Oh, and I believe in reality they aren't as menacing and huge as the one in the game ;D

Thanks! Actually no. I did a few sheets full of sketches of all sorts of creatures and fossils. Ammonites, trilobites, prehistoric fish - both reality-based as well as more on the fantasy side. Though I guess I can see why you'd make that comparison.

Thanks a lot!

Thank you! I think they're actually fascinating creatures.. maybe a little weird, but in a funny way. They're kinda like squids in shells :D

Dillerkind (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/5/2021 03:28

Aww thank you! That's very good of you.

Dillerkind (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/5/2021 03:26

Thank you! Much appreciated.

Dillerkind (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/5/2021 03:25

That's a lot of praise. And it's even crowned with holy poop. I mean, what more could I hope for?  Thanks a lot!

Dillerkind (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/5/2021 03:23

Glad to hear. Thank you!

So, the first boss of Xenon 2 Megablast got a little lifting ?

It looks really fine like this.

Awesome. Inspired by burgonet helmets?

Instantly recognisable style, solid work as always.

Your dithering is just godlike. The shadows are just breathtaking. The way you do the textures, I have no word to express how good that is. Holy poop

Love this one
