Meant to be a challenge entry at first, but run out of colors, room on a canvas, and, eventually, time . Luckily first two  comparably easy to fix, though no longer fit  requirements.=) I wish I could be able fix  time as well, but its okay, i'll take care of it later. Some flaws are most likely, but I can't see it right now - stare at it too much.=)

Update: Fixed  a plane separation issues (or so I hope=), cleaned loose pixels, adjusted palette, reaarange canvas a bit, add frame to cut pic from bg.  Hope it look ok now.=)

Majestic! There's no other words for it.

LTPATS (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/9/2014 19:54

Of all the great little details my favorite part of this piece has to be the exposed backside. Without the robot's back and gears being exposed, the rest of the characters would just look like they're stylized humans or masked. It definitely ties the whole piece together and tells a story.

I also love how the butt still manages to be somewhat subtle even though it is in the center of the piece. I always love me some robot booty !

WOW greatest thing to hit my eyes since god =]

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 5/10/2009 23:54

I still find it incredible how you have the eye for details and patience to do that.

Jokerz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/3/2009 19:57

Reminds me of spirited away, really great work there.

InkBreath (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/19/2009 04:19

This is so cool. Reminds me of Samurai Jack.

natano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/19/2008 11:34
that's cool man!

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/5/2008 07:34
Wow! Just wow! I can't stop looking at this picture, so much in it, and oodles of atmosphere and character. One of my favourites of your mate :)

Leath (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/1/2008 21:57
Fool is the reason why I am only 99% straight o_O
Freaking amazing artworks...

Baz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/1/2008 14:46
Mmhhh... not bad... maybe you should just... nahh, just kidding, this is AWSOME !!!

[kirillko] (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/28/2008 12:50
perfect! =)

zlajonja (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/27/2008 16:33
Fool, I must be bluntly honest with you. The thing that brought me here into the world of Pixel Joint was seeing one your pixels. And I just got hooked into this community.

This is one of the best pixels I've ever seen and as it is a still picture it's kinda moving. :) It really feels alive. :)

You've made my day merrier, thanx. :)

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 9/27/2008 06:10
Its awesome how this pieces sends you in the wrong direction. I first looked at the title, wich made me expect something like the movie. When I clicked I didnt understand the link with the title, but then I noticed all those small robot detials. AWESOME!

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/1/2008 03:54
Great use of colours and I love the sense of depth to this picture too.
Really great piece of work. Fav.

stonewall (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/25/2008 20:13
That looks wonderful :D

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 8/13/2008 03:00
Damn, what should I say? Another perfect pixelartwork by fool with gorgeous colors, perfect technique and incredible detail. Don't you want to work on Nintendo DS Games some day? :O

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/10/2008 19:14
I love it. The amount of detail put into every part of the image is amazing.

Why are there two human babies, and the rest of the people are robots.

danbenevides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/10/2008 16:44
The technique is awesome, the concept is beautiful...

seakingelebit (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/9/2008 12:22

Listen I know pure praise comments are discouraged, but Fool, somtimes I cant beleive its pixel'd, ITS AMAZING,

Keep it up, the world needs more amazing artists, who knows, one day, people will remember you as the first person to have pixel art in a museum collection, you will have your own Pixel art, that matches on par or better than the mona lisa, keep it up

homosapien (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/8/2008 20:41
Man, I love your art.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/8/2008 13:02
I have even seen a movie about Spirited Away.=) I do have a full collection of Miyazaki's.

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/8/2008 10:51
Have you ever watched the animated movie Spirited Away?  You would love it, just like I love this picture

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/7/2008 20:14
cool.  And are the robot animals companions the robots created for themselves? like the alligator thing on the right or the robo-crab (?) thing on the bucket? 

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/7/2008 18:11
Robots serves people, do shoping and look after the kids, just work etc.

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/7/2008 12:32
I like the center robot's cast butt cheeks.  Also, everyone seems to be robotic, what about the children?

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/6/2008 17:56
I can't say I understand what this world you created is about, but it's amazing to look at. 

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/6/2008 17:49
it looks great, but not as great as your other pixels. still awesome though.

MrNadel (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 8/6/2008 13:39
You are so god damn tallented, man!
keep it up, keep making amazing pixels like this, you are the best.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/6/2008 13:31
Thanks for the comments, guys,I really appreciate it.=)
Just letting you know, that i reworking the piece, i was like "eww" when i see it in 2 days, i found a lot of issues I hope i'll  fix to make it better (or worse=). I'll get all given crits in account as well, thanks.=)

DeathByChris (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/6/2008 13:05

stop being so good. sheesh

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/6/2008 12:25
its about time I comment on one of your pieces.  Very awesome stuff indeed - as usual.  But I strongly urge you to spend a bit more time cleaning up your images.  I feel the *only* thing holding you back at this point is your rough edges and unclean lines.  Sure, you do AA, but there is vast amounts you can improve in that area.  I will admit that it's probably the least fun part of a creative piece, however when it comes to a pixel piece that's what it's all about.

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/6/2008 10:12
What sells it for me are the details ... so much "life" to this image.  So many stories all come together.  The little hooks hanging from the line under the awning, the child reaching up (on the right side), the dream-catcher hanging across the street, the robo-dog-thing in the bottom corner ... there's so much attention paid.  That's what makes this win for me.

Having said that ... the guy across the way (between the main character and the lady with the baby on her back) ... his hat feels unfinished to me.  Kind of caught my attention.  Everything else seems to have some texture, but his hat doesn't.  Just caught my eye! 

Great creativity.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/5/2008 07:18
As usual, you make an awesome and fantastic pixel art. Very good job !
I really love this o_o...

Pixel_Devil (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/5/2008 03:55
I love your works! Thank you!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/5/2008 03:51
Incredible use of color. FAV!

l3m0n5 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/4/2008 20:15
I love a lot about this piece. The colors and so calm and yet well contrasted and the lighting just seems sooooooo realistic. Well done Fool, well done.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/4/2008 18:38
Ah.. uh... gah! WHY!?

I really wish this had been in the challenge. It would have been a definite vote for me. As usual it's full of vibrant characters and scenery, but I think my favorite element is the amount of action going on in the foreground and background. There's a lot to see.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 8/4/2008 16:03
Lovely sense of depth.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/4/2008 13:51
To bad that you missed weekly.... This so great idea! Great work!

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/4/2008 11:54
This just screams a sweet game level. Some japanese market town where everyone wears masks...ah i'm in love with this piece.

PixelSpy (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/4/2008 09:48
It doesn't look quite as polished as some of your other stuff but it is still an amazing piece of work. I really like the Japanese Kabuki thing you have been playing around with lately. It's good stuff

Ricki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 8/4/2008 09:40
Awesome work, fool. You impress me as always. ..

mozzy (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/4/2008 09:28
Haha makes me thing of Mulan where the 3 men dressed up as concubines to fool the evil guy.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/4/2008 08:53
Love the contrast here. Wonderfool as always!!!
