Old School Nightmares for little Jimmy. My entry for the Panorama Challenge.

it's my first piece for a competition here (decided to get into this kinda late in the week), but i think i can call it done for now! Just plain old school fun with familiar faces

Wish I have had more time to experiment with colors and reflections more; Earthworm Jim was planned, too. But hey, we have Megaman, Noid and even a macho-Kirby! ;p

ps: Yes, I've wasted a whole color -only- for the 3-red lights.

Whoa! Got #2 with this one! Thanx guys!

it would appear that the temptation was too great--you could not avoid the noid

@@. Very Nice. E aí cara. Meu inglês is sux, por isso deixo o recado em português. Muito feliz que esse trabalho seja de um conterrâneo. ^^

Aparece na PP as vezes. Sentimos falta dos seus trabalhos. Afinal, é obra prima. T+ ver.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/20/2007 08:52
Holy crap...I can't believe someone else remembers the Noid.  Great piece!

wushukid (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/16/2007 10:08
Wow, i so love this one :D

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/16/2007 06:48
Gotta love the lil' lemmings.

Krakatoa (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/16/2007 02:23
Love the kirby thing.

leeor_net (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/14/2007 19:36
Awesome! Awesome! Love it! ^_^

Roy_m (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/14/2007 07:22
very good !

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/14/2007 06:02
"Maybe it's the Noid, who shoud have avoided me."
Awesome work, nice touch getting those characters in there. Looks great.

Zee (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/14/2007 05:09
Wow. I... just hell yeah man. Hell yeah. I cannot say a single bad thing about this, but I'm not great at spotting the less obvious C&C kinda stuff. Just freaking epic though.

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/14/2007 04:23
this wins insane amounts of awesome for Yo! Noid.

Incredibly underated awesome game.

I also really like the beam effect you've got going from mega man, too.

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 8/13/2007 18:01
Is that the Noid!? YES.

The Lemmings are very cool too.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/13/2007 15:27
Superb! Blanka holding the SNES is a wonderful touch

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 8/13/2007 09:45
6 extra points for the use of megaman and the appearance of a Mega Drive.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/13/2007 08:32
Tru Tru. I didn't quite think that one through.

I've always wanted to see little nemo break out of his 8 bittedness. Aside from that silly animate movie of his. So maybe it was wishful thinking.

Starchild (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/13/2007 08:16

thanx! doppleganger: little nemo = best idea ever! it would fit like a charm since i'm a Nemo fan myself, but i guess the little kid would have to be from this decade, so he could have his nex-gen games, hehe.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/13/2007 07:34
Suhweeeeeet! I really truly like this buuuuut...little Jimmy should've been replaced with little Nemo. It would be oh so fitting. Fantastic work!

waarde4 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/13/2007 07:30
avoid the noid! cool!

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/13/2007 06:27
Ofcourse I like it, its very comical and you got some good cartoon skills. Its just that it doesn't feel complete as a panorama :) Awsome anyways though.

Starchild (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/13/2007 05:15

thanks for all the comments!

/inkspot: like other contestants, I've tried to stay very true to the 'panorama' feeling, but since this is a cartoony piece, decided to keep things flat, 2-d  and fun. Hope you like it :)

/1up: no, man :)


inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/13/2007 03:36
Seamless ends doesn't make it quite panorama yet.

1sT (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/13/2007 03:11
really good, but isn't 17 colors ?

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/13/2007 01:05
Good picture, nice idea and execution!

Rynen10K (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/13/2007 00:27

Bonus points for use of Yo!Noid.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/13/2007 00:25
