That's an awesome movie, and also, an awesome pixel art pic ;D

Amazing!  I love the style, idea, colors, background, shading, the dirt is great, and the skull is awesome!!!

It's very beautiful and eerie, but i do agree that the bottom rocks need a bit more detail.

IsoWayne (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/10/2009 17:06

I love it and so true. It reminds me of the motif from macbeth "fair is foul, and foul is fair"

 Beautiful pixelart. Faved.

Wow this looks really nice! But I didnt see the skull at first because its a long picture.

But yeah... very nice!

kittybobo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/18/2007 13:15

.....but im not going to use it


kittybobo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/18/2007 13:14
its really awsome cuz u might just think its a rose first

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 9/1/2007 07:46
mmmmh...I think the rose is so much satured,  and the dirt is too simple, but the skull is very very cool !

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/15/2007 16:41
mind explaining why its noobish?

D-Puff (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 6/15/2007 15:43
it is noobish, but VERY good (i didn't expect the skull, cause it was so long).

ur dum lololol!!! /noob

Looks great.  I didn't notice the hand before, it's a good detail.

someform, i just feel this is personally.

Beautiful job on the dithering as always. The effect of the rocks  getting larger is amazingly well done. Overall a magnificint piece. My only critique is just a personal preference. It is that the space around the skull is completeley blank and vacant besides for a root or two. I would've liked to see some faded rocks in there.

I like the shading on the rose. Good job on this work, love the skull.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/1/2007 05:05

I saw this project form the beginning, and every update rock'd!
And so does the Final version!
Great work!

johnny_c (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/1/2007 04:55
da lack of dithr on the rocks relly make the skull stand outs coo!

Liman (Level 3 Chief) @ 6/1/2007 03:31
The idea is pretty cool and the skull is great. I would have liked some more detail on the larger rocks towards the bottom of the piece. 5/6

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/1/2007 01:57
nice idea ....  

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 6/1/2007 01:53

This turned out really good.

The skull and hand are great, and I really like the simple yet effective ground. The head of the rose seems a bit flat though - especially in contrast to the 3d feel of the ground.

llyd (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/1/2007 01:45
5/5 and fav. I've fallowed the making of this art, and you get the best of it!!!

Mil (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/1/2007 01:45
It's a very good idea and a great work.
Maybe it would have been better with some grey rocks between the roots?
Anyway, I really love your entry :)

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/1/2007 01:33
I love the thorns and the skull

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/1/2007 00:39

That's a great peice Ens. The skull and hands are great. I'm wondering if the vine would be more effective if it got darker as it made it's way down to the skull...

Nice pixel!
