I'm impressed you could do this awesome piece in an hour.  It has so much character and polish to it.  And it is one of those pieces that stick with you

Great work!

Is a fusion of a gorilla and a manta-ray so I'm guessing the tail belongs to the manta not the gorilla part

Thats pretty epic,the way you've done the eyes,thats how i should have done em in my latest piece,you've done em brilliantly.

Rodrigo (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/13/2008 07:16

no matter how many times i look at this, i'm always questioning myself, IS THIS REAL?!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/31/2007 07:14
That fur is amazing

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/16/2006 12:08
that's one scary looking creature, very cool

tuaarita (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 11/19/2006 08:43
that's hot.

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 11/14/2006 12:59
sheer awxomeness, cool glowing eyes, drool and fur especially.

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/14/2006 07:44
You could argue that there is no need for a tail on a gorilla, but it works. This is a really fine piece of pixel art. One of my favourites to date. Great use of colours. Great job Helm

heh heh I like this one :)
Seen it on pixelation a few days ago :)

lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 11/13/2006 10:37
That thing looks freakin' awesome... fav'd for sure!

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/13/2006 09:47
that looks..... REAL!

MarioH2O (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/13/2006 09:18
I love this.  Has a cool, freakish look to it.  The tail is excellent...

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/13/2006 05:24  about the white.

About knuckles, I didn't really consider total faithfulness an issue, but thanks for the detailed critique.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/13/2006 05:03
Sorry for the double-post (there's no edit post feature), but let me further define my crit about the knuckles a little bit more. I understand that the meta-carpus bones are NO abnormality. And this piece is no different, other than the fact that in most animals, especially primates, they don't tend to show as much as they do in this piece, especially in the right hand. They stand out a little too much, is what I'm trying to say. Maybe by combining the meta carpal highlights together, like the normal layer of fat and muscle that ussually cover it, this issue may be resolved, in my eyes at least...

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/13/2006 03:59
   "made in about an hour. The usual"....pshh, talent hog. I thought this one and panda's were the best in the challenge at the moment. lovely use of colors. I never did like the way you shaded his knuckles for some reason, though. Especially on his( or it's) right hand, the knuckles, or the bones that connect them, seem to strangely go up to it's wrist.
   My favorite part is the eyes. I do love that glow that their giving, but from the first time I saw this piece, I always wondered: what the hell are those silver things, above it's eyes? Is it some type of Cyber-Gorilla? Forgive me, if I'm questioning the obvious, but I just have know clue what it is. Either way, it's probably my favorite detail in the piece, other than the eyes. Lovely texturing and awesome color choice. Great job...
