Turned a very old sketch into a pixel last year, and fixed up some of the colours and stuff the other day. Thanks to Fool for suggestions!

Cool! But the "rided rat" doesn't look like Slinter from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? He is owned!

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 3/19/2009 15:44

Thank you, guys :)

MFlanaga (Level 4 Ensign) @ 3/19/2009 14:45

Awesome :) 6/6 I love it well done.

Majestic Fox (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/18/2008 07:45
Ok, cool.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 7/17/2008 17:35
Majestic Fox: No, this is my own concept (was for my ratty game way back, but I gave that up since making a game of humanoid rats is confused with skaven and I'd rather make something original), but I have done warhammer skaven once before in my gallery.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Majestic Fox (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/17/2008 16:02
Is this Warhammer 40k?

MrNadel (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 5/23/2008 12:17
awwwsome . one of the best

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/18/2008 18:32
Hehe, welcome to the rider's  club =D

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/17/2008 14:24
This is awesome!!
and blueleds I guess its like humans and monkey's,The rider is a more advanced kind of rat.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 5/17/2008 12:37
Thanks very much for the comments :)

homosapien: I just saw your tremendous tribesman for the first time and you have a better knowledge-base and pixel skills then me (so envy from me) . Thanks for the nice words :) A collab sounds like fun too, I've got two outstanding ones I'm looking forward to (Fool being one of them). I definitely have a very long and dirty list of people I admire and who's work I disect and study (and the two people you mention are both on there).

blueleds: This was originally a rat riding a boar for the boar challenge last year, but I exchanged the boar with something I thought maybe more in his realm.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/17/2008 10:01
I think this may tie for my favorite pixel art ever.

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/17/2008 09:27
Great, I love the colors.

Gil (Level 6 Major) @ 5/17/2008 05:50
I love this though!

grim666 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/17/2008 03:19
Nice as always.  Rats that don't like less evolved rats,  that sounds like use humans, Death to rats by rats:)-

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/17/2008 00:44

How come the rat is riding another rat, isnt that demeaning to the other rat to be on all fours when the rider suggests they are a clearly race of biped-like creatures (what with the staff and book in his hands).  Maybe it's some kind of punishment, like the shaman cursed him to be his servant/riding beast.  Or maybe its like how Goofy was a dog and had Pluto as a pet, who was also a dog, so it's a world of both human-like rats and non-human animal rats.  I demand some kind of backstory to accompany this image to quell my wandering mind.

homosapien (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/17/2008 00:34
Oh no, I questioned if this true or not but I honestly think you're in my top five favorite pixel artist. And you know what? (don't nobody this- You and I) you're number 3.

Its out, there. By the way miscugh and Fool put you in third. So take it up with them or something

oh and promise me you'll collaborate with me in the near future.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 5/16/2008 06:46
Added the aa, darth :) Yes, oneday we must!

Thanks guys :)

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/16/2008 06:37
Saw the preview and said ... "That's Buloght!!" and then fainted!

Good to see more of your work!

Only 2 problems (and they're minor)
1) the shadow on the bottom feels very stark ... this is just minor, but it pulls my eye to it
2) the outer edge of the book isn't AA'd like the rest of the image

Other than that, another great piece ... one day you will work with me on a project!!!!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/16/2008 06:29
Classic buloght. Welcome back! :D
Your skaven army swells in numbers...

nihilyst (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/16/2008 05:55
I like the greenish tone of it. And I'm fond of your fur-textures. They're really great!

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/16/2008 05:53
palette suits the theme very well.
