My very first Pixeljoint submission... and for Pixelween 2006! This one is pitting Gremlin(s) from the Stephen Spielberg movie against Crites from the cult classic movie Critters. Always wanted to see this match up played out, but have no doubt in my mind who will win it - Crites of course! Nothing can stop this swarm of walking (and rolling) piranhas.
This was kind of a quick'n'dirty project for me, as it only took me about 6 hr total to do, so there is a lot wrong with it... therefore comments/critique is welcome.

Just about as good as one could hope for, bravo.

masterreid (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/30/2006 21:15

Bravo! Very well done. You did a very nice job on the entire piece, but i especially loved how you added depth to the pixel, very hard to accomplish and you did it in perfect purportions


Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/28/2006 00:40
very well done and welcome here! A very lovely composition, like in some fantasy battle scene - and that moonlight is very moody.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/27/2006 19:32
Dig it a lot! Especially the preview pic. I have both Gremlins movies on DVD.

PKT (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/27/2006 03:16

Both classic movies from my childhood! hell yeah

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 10/25/2006 13:01
Pixelween is really successfull since it brought such a great pixel artists here :) Great scene.

Either there's another lighting source or gremlin should be partly darkened.

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/25/2006 12:52
Wonderful work. Favorited.

Plunk (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/25/2006 11:55
ha ha ha bellissimo!

DarkfalzX (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/25/2006 11:17
Thanks milkyjon: )
Crites were my favorite characters since childhood, and my brother and I have developed a lot of our own character ideas based on them... one of which is a KS - kroitus seriousus - a blatant crite ripoff, but with a much more complicated backstory and nature: )
I had an idea for a Gremlins VS Critters puzzle-platformer game a while back, but never got past drawing a couple of sprites.
I initially wanted to add more gremlins into the piece, but was afraid it will make it even busier than it already is... however I might still do that. That, and a giant crite ball rolling over gremlins in the background: )

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 10/25/2006 11:15
That is beautiful . I hate you. Cannot wait to see more from you.

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/25/2006 11:07
Ha ha this is absolutely awsome, I said over in Imagicians pixelween entry that Critters and Gremlins would be a cool fight.  My fav idea and entry so far. I love the way that the Critters are wearing Gizmos head as a hat. I would have liked to see some of the characters fropm Gremlins 2 in there too tho , like the gameshow host gremlin, electrick gremlin, spider gremlin and drag queen gremlin. And mebs the Crite with  the bald patch (Gosh its sary how I can remember all these old films so well).  Now all its gonna take to top this idea is for  someone to do a piece with the two most scary villans of my childhood, headless witch Princess Mombie and the wheelers from Return to OZ VS the Child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, now THAT ould be a fight. Anyways enough remenissing......well done on this piece, brilliant idea, even better execution. fav

Atooi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 10/25/2006 11:04
Wow, nicely done DarkfalzX! This is awesome all around.

I really like the Gremlin's ear going out of scene - great dynamic touch. The background creates a wonderful atmosphere. Great use of color too.

A very enjoyable piece.

DarkfalzX (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/25/2006 10:30
Sorry - it's one of those windmills they sometimes have on farms:

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/25/2006 10:24
... or is it an oil well near the barn? Forgive me if those are props from the Critters movie, it's quite a while ago I watched it...

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/25/2006 10:21
Oh f*ck... my chances to get a somewhat high rank just dropped one place Very well done, can't believe you did this in 6h (wow). The moody lighting/choice of colors and the arrangement is really good. I also like the details (Mogwai/Gizmo, the barn and the roadsign and the Gremlin in the back being attacked by two critters jumping on him (?) )

Kobun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/25/2006 10:14
I love the glowing eyes of the crites jumping the gremlin in the background.  Post more of your work please.

CsaR (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/25/2006 10:06
Wow this is really great. I love the color choice. 5/5

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/25/2006 09:58
Jeez the competition is getting incredibly good so far...My favorite parts of this piece are the clouds in the background, and the Gizmo scalp on top of the main critter(kudos for choosing critters. I though I was the only one who remembered that movie!) Great job!!
