The Nurikabe, is a youkai (Japanese monster) wall that blocks the way for travellers at night, and you can only get rid of it by knocking on it.

This will probably sound familiar to those who have played Okami or Mario64, as they used monsters inspired by it (Blockhead and Whomp respectively, if I recall correctly).

Love the AA. Colors are top notch as well. The design is wonderful, and I'm loving those teeth and arms.

I love your palette choices and the way you AA.
Simplistic yet effective, smooth but moderately detailed. Excellent job!

What can I say: some people have the "it" factor flowing out of them so easily. Excellent piece.

Awesome you joined PJ, nice to see you here man.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/8/2007 07:55
I just love the colour. Great look of texture and what I think most impressive, is how the centre has only on colour, but that does not affect anything. Impressive!

Thanks for that interesting bit of knowledge.

Great pixel, by the way, as with all the others!
