Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 8/8/2010 12:05

ok . . . two elves . . . and Collin Farrel, smoking a cigarette?

Is her hair attacking them?

Jaker Pot (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/1/2010 18:45

I liked it, but her ear looks odd when you stare at it...

It's awesome the same way  =)

Olek173 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/23/2010 05:03

 You're kidding me! Sixth place? For that! I'd rather see that in a art mueseam then some lines on a piece of paper! This is awesome!

Spikrodd (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/25/2010 10:49

Wow, this is a amazing pixel. I love the hair, and the eyes.

That's really magnificent! Great work.

DraKenZ (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/13/2008 02:16
You are really the artist!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/23/2008 10:44
There's always room for improvment, but you've really reached the edge to perfection :D

xanax (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/16/2008 10:02
ooooooooooooo veryvery good:D

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/12/2008 19:50
It's freaking amazinG!!!!!!

countach (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/12/2008 12:48
Wow this is impossible. I can't be watching it for real... Totally amazing!

Fenne (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/9/2008 05:42

I love the hair..
No, I love the whole picture!
Really amazing!

pixelli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/6/2008 18:22

I agree about the ears, andd, make the lips longer and thinner, dont go by stereotypes, the end of the mouth should reach the pupil... the lips here hardly make the iris :)


other than that wow. :)

mar4000 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/28/2007 14:51
The ear seems to be detatched
But the whole thing looks amazing

volcom (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/26/2007 16:48
love it, i think this is way better than any other pixel?

Koch (Level 6 Made) @ 11/28/2007 11:48
Great water falls in the back.

FridayFrancis (Level 1 Seaman) @ 11/7/2007 15:05
I just had to say that this made a wonderful layout. I'll have to use one of your bases when I have time. And I can't imagine spending that long on something. (The longest I've gone is 10 hours; of course, that was without eating or anything, so... XD)

I've always loved your art, because you prove that Microsoft Paint is a perfectly usable program. (I get annoyed when people say otherwise.)

YungYankee (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/7/2007 11:22

very well done.

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/7/2007 00:05
Too artificial. Background looks nice, but faces look very wrong - especially mouth.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/28/2007 20:16
The cigarette doesn't look like its been held. It looks weird. But wow. 6/5

Stan20 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/15/2007 14:49
Lot of detals, amazing hair, fantasy, fantastic XD

supermansucks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/15/2007 15:59
looks like a mage an elf and a human

ZeroFive1 (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/3/2007 16:10
So? It's still pixel art, and it still rocks. I don't know why you're being so picky on the rocks and ranting about something that you could say in one sentence.

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/14/2007 08:52
This picture could be so much better if it was anti aliased but i don't find any AA at all. Nice composition and shading though.

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/14/2007 07:27
I wouldn't be that harsh with that pic. It may look really cheezy, but I really like it. Straight, clean pixelart.

farvardin (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/30/2007 00:14
It's very nicely done and incredibly detailled, but it's a pity the guy on the right, with cigarette and fedora, really looks out of place. Otherwise, congratulation for this huge work.

RockinArtistShotgunGirl (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/24/2007 22:12

1) the people are pretty ugly, but they are realistic, gotta give ya props fer that!

2) nice animating, but there's not alot.

all in all, i like it.

<((___(CRAYOLA)___(()  <(KEEP IT REELS, YO!)

kakikukeko (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/1/2007 04:36
I'm not too fond of the style, but I must admit that it is really an amazing job, and that  except for the eyes of the guy on the right, being a bit too close, I have no negative crits for this amazing piece.. very good job
(the ears could be better though.. )

tenkabuto (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/20/2007 10:57
Amazing work. O.O

Scotteh (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/15/2006 08:04

breton obviously doesnt appreciate pixel art

Equinoxx (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/3/2006 11:22

fourzerotwo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/20/2006 15:56
Simply an amazing piece of work!

Xirkur (Level 1 Private) @ 9/17/2006 16:33

Omg... that is amazing... I'm literally speechless.  I wish I had some advice but I have no room ro speak... so this one is a faviorite.

toptotty (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/17/2006 13:48
What an amazing picture.  i love it 100 out of 10!  toptotty

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/2/2006 10:37
Something about the perspective of the farthest right guy and his hat makes his face appear a bit flat.  Nice use of the curve tool in MS Paint, haha.  Dithering is smooth as.

Llama (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 9/2/2006 10:31

Elychan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/1/2006 17:36

I don't have words ..... wonderful O_O ...

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/1/2006 13:30
Tomster, this isn't oekaki. Oekaki doesn't incorporate dither techniques and often uses rhuedementary shading techniques. You avatar is more oekaki than this piece. You should think before you speak, or post, rather.

tomster 785 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/1/2006 04:05
so this is oakeui or however you spell it

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/31/2006 23:26

maybe a more 3D model may help?

Maybe these may help?



raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/31/2006 21:59
massive! my favorite parts here - hair,because it requires a lot of work, and decorations.

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/31/2006 21:15

1) the rocky background was semi rushed, but I was afraid if i detailed dithered it it would be too sharp against the forground. I may edit this after your comments.

2) The ear, (on kiera specifically) pissed me off to no extent. I think i drew it completely wrong. I gave up after a while. I like tyes ear, but not kieras, If anyone has better advice then "I dont like it" I would appreciate it ^_^ Its easier to improve when someone can actually provide a useful critique with a method or reference for improvement XD

3) I didnt animated anything but the waterfall because if I animated the grass, people would bitch that the hair on the characters wasnt animated, and it escalates from there. The way I saw it, is water can run, without wind blowing. I liked the look, and found it calming and that it helped to even out the image, This will not change.

4) I may add more lighting to the edges of their cheekbones after the comments, Thank you -- Space2 --  for your critique.

5) Thank you all for the advice, I will apply it toward my next projects.

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/31/2006 18:43
that is true - the mountains do require some work - but the face (including the ear) is really nice. Here that ear is mainly bugging me. Also there areno creepy guys who could easily be females without the face hair (sorry for language) :p... zAk

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/31/2006 13:21
i dissagree, i believe that this piece is better than " travelling the lands" in both technical skill and visual interest. also as far as i can tell this one doesnt have copy and pasted mountains :P

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/31/2006 10:48
Though everyone will hate me - i dont think this is the best piece ever - your travelling the lands is so much better! Im not going to write any more because i cant comment on pieces i dont like when their authors skills are a light year better than mine!! If id rate pieces id give this one 5/5 - but no favs.. i dont like huge pieces... zAk

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/31/2006 10:39

Excellent and impressive work. My only qualm with it is the girl's ear. for some reason it looks flat and 2 dimensional in contrast with everything else. Ears seem to be difficult for you in many aspects, especially elf ears. Is it the lack of a 3D model for elf ears?

Anway, this piece is very well done and impressive. I'm always impressed by you skin shading and dithering.

Craddik (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 8/31/2006 10:20
this is probably the best piece i have ever seen 5/5

E-Magination (Level 3 Sniper) @ 8/31/2006 09:35
6*. Best pixel piece ever.

Da_Masta (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/31/2006 04:58
 This one's so awesomeley awesome! It's big, it's cororful and it's really realistic.Well, it's sorta fantsy, so not really, but it looks realistic.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/31/2006 02:57

Jaeden you are so godly at pixeling hairs :(

Bob_Jones (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/30/2006 13:51
The characters are amazing, good job; my only crit is that the rocks in the background look sloppy and quickly drawn
