This is based on a little pewter toy I've had since I was ten or so.

 It's awesome although I'm not too much of a fan of the axe to be honest. It's great though.

Really well done, the only thing I don't like is the Axe, it looks a bit half-assed in comparison to the awesome outfit. Kudos none the less :) ( A dai-katana with a red ribbon flowing out of the end would look awesome on this)

awesome !! i just think it would be more appropriate for him to be weilding a samurai sword


Dentralt (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/31/2008 13:29
That is .. .. Superb.
The shading is so nice, and the pallette is so limited but you use the colours really well.. Man, Wish I was that good..

Aweosme position.. i am loving it..

Just one this, the weapon's ANGLE is done wrong.


Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/13/2007 02:43
the pose is wonderfull, but since the colors are chosen so near by another, it looks very flat...

Nice ! I like the iconic clean design !

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/27/2006 06:27
I love the striking pose. Fantastic work.

xcaretbaby (Level 1 White Belt) @ 1/31/2006 09:26
it is a very good piece of art

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 11/19/2005 05:35
This is one of my favorite pieces of yours, Sedge.  You pulled it off with such artistic flair.  I'm loving that pose.

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 8/30/2005 08:14
Well thx Sensei. Ninja turtle feet were not the intention, but I see what you mean.

Sensei (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 8/30/2005 02:38
 This is my favourite pixel art in the hole wide world
The feet are little like teenage ninja turtles's

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 8/3/2005 08:42
Did some major updating to this piece.  Darkened everything and removed some of the dark lines.

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 7/5/2005 15:46
The raised lines on the hat don't really make any sense I suppose.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/5/2005 13:32
 I like it, the straight-ish outlines on the trousers are stylish in my opinion. The sideways glow is really good. But I don't know about the shading along the lines on his hat. Perhaps that's just me, I don't know...

Gamma (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/14/2005 11:11
The legs seem too short....

Feltpants (Level 1 White Belt) @ 4/4/2005 02:06
Nice one awsome pose, and nice axe as well big smile

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/29/2005 16:19
Thx, there's definitely some room for revisions, but I'm not touching the colors. wink

Belle (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/29/2005 09:42
I dunno, I quite like the colours on this one. It reminds me of that army of clay soldiers in an Emperor's tomb.

Spider*Monkey (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/28/2005 07:45
Very cool samurai!

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/10/2005 03:28
Donomight: Dithering is a style of shading, you may know it as 'cross-hatching' or 'checkboarding' or something.

Donomight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/7/2005 13:40
This one is awesome! The colors seem good to me. What do you mean by ditehring?

Dejital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/5/2005 19:40
I agree with iSTVAN. The colors are very bland and boring. This shouldn't be too hard to fix, either. If you look closely, the left arm is actually longer than the right, and this fist is a lot larger. Dithering on the orange armor doesn't work at all, gives it a rough texture rather than a smooth and glossy look. The left leg looks like it's missing (the thigh). Great and absolutely beatiful lineart. smile

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/4/2005 15:55
I'm only responding in the same way I would at pixelation. I dont think its ok to just say something either 'sucks' or 'is the best thing in the world.'
Like sedge said, its quite a large work, and because of that and the time it takes to shade and colour I think this work suffers. In my opinion it would have been better at half the size.

the_keller (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2005 08:09
Yer nuts iSTVAN. This pic is one of the best pixels I've seen! And I'm not just kissing ass either. The ax does look kinda jacked but all the other stuff seems nitpicky. angry

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/2/2005 22:51
It's been sitting on my computer forever and I just added the purple glow on the right side recently. I don't usually spend any time on anything larger than 100 pixels so I was just happy to get it to this stage by the time I was done. It definitely needs some polish, but I'm pleased with it so far.

Thanks for the comments/crits.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/2/2005 19:32
Not my favourite of your works, sedge. Colours are a bit boring, the dithering doesnt really suit and the axe thing looks like it could use a bit of shinyness. The perspective on the axe doesnt really give the impression of distance.
The squareness of the pants and shadow also annoy me.
The subject matter reminds me of Kasuyu Mochu's (sp?) work. Which is a good thing!

Some good things about it are the hands and I like how youve used blue and light orange to highlight him, however youve shaded using these colours from opposing directions making the big plain spaces inbetween look rather dull.
I also see a few too many jaggies for my liking!

Sorry for being harsh, but Ive seen better from you!

Shivers (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/1/2005 22:43
Great perspective on this one big smile

the_keller (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/1/2005 15:42
Damn cool sedge. That's a funky looking axe.
