Good stuff.  Let me know when you get a new site then.  Would have linked your current one to my recent one but it didn't due to the inactivity :(    Yours was always one of the nicest looking pixel sites.

Finally some new (and awesome) stuff from st0ven.  I think you must have single handedly got at least half of the pixel art population here.  Your stuff got me into pixel art.

Yay he's here!  *dances a jig*

Do something like this to it.  C'mon.  Do it.  *Waits*

Hey, man=) Nice to see you back.

Like the sprite, very dynamic - practically animated=), keep waiting for a move.=))

Oh, hey st0ven, been a while! Nice to see you get back in gear. I'm pretty fond of this sprite, good job on it!

hello friends! im so glad to chat with you all again. i definitely wasnt satisfied when i was placing the hand, spent several (more than 5, heheh) minutes trying various positionings on the hands and i hadnt gotten it right so i had sort of moved on from it for the time being. I definitely need to pop that back leg outline on there, looks silly being the only aspect of the sprite without it. The gun-arm itself is in fact that (good work hairyu), and i suspect because of the gun attachment design is not very hand-like in nature it doesnt seem to read that way in a static pose. i think flipping him facing left and then redrawing the orientation of the limbs properly would help clear that up. you people are all getting so good at this dark art of pixels, im so happy, and also inspired, by many of your works. ciao for now

I really love the "over"shadows, and the overall design works quite well. About the arm that ppl are having problem to read, it looks to me like it's simply a "megaman/barret/samus-literally-HANDGUN" thing, so no crits from me on that point. Heck, no crits on anything at all.

I love the pose, and it would be especially great to see something like in a game, but it seems his far arm isn't in a place that could make sense. It's obviously not behind the character, then the near arm would have to be ridiculously strong to hold that gun in place. I don't think it's running along the gun - that doesn’t fit the pose. Where I think it would look best is perhaps holding the bottom of the gun, especially the clip hanging out.

I admit I see what I think is an elbow, but consider what I mentioned above.

Welcome back dude. Ace sprite, hope to see more from you soon. =P

st... st.. who? omg. man, i've been missing you and your pixels.

As for crits. The only part I can't get is his left leg shading. You outlined everything except it.

I'd love to see this in animation. Design and colors are excellent. Instant fav!

excellent sprite, i especially like the strong outlines on this one. not really sure what his right hand is doing/ how its holding the weapon.

Is s/he wearing two differeng boots? and the complete breaking of the outline on the left boot bothers me as well, apart from that, great work, although I would've liked to see some torso details, as well.

Luca (Level 5 Trash) @ 8/24/2007 05:39

where have you been?:P like the palette, but i think the torso is a little to forward.

sorry for my english:P

Very impressive - great design and palette.
Glad to see you submitting again.
