InkBreath (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/19/2009 04:12

First piece ive seen where the preview is better than the piece. Why is it like that though? lol. Such an amazing preview. is this in the hall of fame?

subspark (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/31/2009 06:36

Seen the 80's classic Labirynth Fool? Those characters MUST have been inspired from it.

If not, check out that movie out because its right up your alley!

Kidcat3000 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/8/2009 09:24

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/6/2009 06:41

Very cool characters and the usual fool-quality. Love it.

asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/16/2009 10:23
illumination (wise) -> cut (pirate) -> evolution (primitive) -> monitor look (crazy doctor)... wow :O

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/23/2008 15:58
The scientist exploding into the wise man is genius.  As is the rip into the pirate. 

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/23/2008 12:20

Probably the best preview ever, and update! GJ!

LandShark (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/21/2008 10:01
the preview animation is fucking insane

minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/21/2008 01:53
if you'd enter, you'd win for sure man. But maybe it's better to give other people a chance, you're the best and you know it no need to prove it anymore ;)

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 12/20/2008 23:34
Very nice characters, top work as always=) And nice creative preview!

nick_carney94 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/20/2008 22:08
The new preview is cooler than the piece itself.  Good job.

metaldev (Level 4 Murderer) @ 12/20/2008 18:57

arbuzen (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 12/20/2008 17:24
На превью часами смотреть можно))

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/20/2008 16:10
There is a question who disturb me. Your "name" Fool. Does it refer to the character of Robin Hoob in the Royal Assassin's books or it's just a coincidence ?
But one time more, I love what you do =).

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 12/20/2008 07:29
Ohmagad, epic preview !
I like the pirate the most, and I'm glad you didn't posted them separately for the challenge...it would have stolen all the 3 places xD

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/20/2008 06:53
What Jinn and Skamo said, that is amazing!

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 12/20/2008 06:48
{ Awesome new preview! ^^

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 12/20/2008 01:32
Wow, the new preview is insane. =D

I find the frame between the pirate and the caveman hilarious.

cassiechihuahua (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/20/2008 01:19

I could tell it was you when I saw the scientist!

The animation is a nice touch, and I couldn't stop watching it.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/19/2008 23:43
Guys, thank you very much for the inputs, highly appreciated.=)

Jompe71, I am a fool and enjoy it too.=)

Dogmeat, kidnaping a fool sounds like trouble the biggest part of which - to get rid of him.=)

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/19/2008 21:40
Well, this blows every other portrait out of the water.

006 (Level 2 Corporal) @ 12/19/2008 19:04
Each character has 16 colours expect for the scientist, which is the best. Awesome work Fool, faved!

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/19/2008 16:17
Scientist is my fav, exellent work overall!

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 12/19/2008 11:03

/applaud Love the pallet on the old man, (how the nose is redder than the rest of the face) but the mad scientist gives me the most entertainment

Fantastic as always lol.

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/19/2008 10:49

banane4joy (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/19/2008 09:26
Hello, you Fool, I love you!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/19/2008 06:12
Always so extremely wonderful work. GJ!

fragon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/19/2008 05:32

skooba-dude (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 12/19/2008 04:22
OMG, I am grateful you didn't enter. You would have one 1st,2nd and 3rd.

shmupstick (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 12/19/2008 02:05
This is sick. No one is this good.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 12/18/2008 18:33
I KNEW something like this was going to happen. I kept telling myself "Somebody like Fool is going to enter this at the last moment and just kill the competition".

Awesome pieces, of course. Favorites are a toss-up between the pirate and the wise man.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 12/18/2008 18:30
Old man is my favourite. :) Then orangutan!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 12/18/2008 16:16
This is amazing, in a fools style but it also contains some very nice pixel effects!

I really like those highlights you did on the pirate! They give his face so much more shape!
The hues on the wise man are all excellent in place, perfectly neutralizing each other but still making it a lot more interesting!
The cave mans half open mouth and his eyes just give an perfect expression, and the detail on the hair works good as well!
This mad scientist is really mad, everything on him is just perfect!

And I just noticed the tiny skulls on the pirates bandana, those tiny details really finish your work!

If I can only say how awesome I find this by posting a long comment, I will post a long comment.
Or maybe even a longer one.



Wedmak (Level 1 Seaman) @ 12/18/2008 14:41
Brilliant work!

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/18/2008 11:46
I know it's not very logical, but he didn't enter. So don't worry :P.

I'm especially digging the wise old man, since that's exactly how I pictured him in my head when I was reading the challenge.

He can't enter without editing the colours by the way, if he would want to.
There's 58 colours in total, but every single portrait MUST have exactly 16 colours.
So only if he'd up the colours to 64 would this be enterable.

TheFox (Level 1 Seaman) @ 12/18/2008 11:44
Good thing he didn't enter, he would have beasted 1-3 ;)

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/18/2008 11:27
Ha, ganondorf ^^
Cute :D

Dusky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/18/2008 11:25
Dude, how could you not submit?! Beautiful caricatures.

Oren_shtiv (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/18/2008 09:19
wow!,very good!..you are a true artist Fool!.

Jompe71 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/18/2008 08:53

I'm not a pixel artist myself, just scooping this forum to see if I can find one for a mobile game. I haven't really been looking at to much art here but one thing is for sure...

The true master is found, it's the best I've ever seen!

If you don't work with this professionally, you truely are a Fool.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/18/2008 08:40
Fuck ! I can't ever participate in this chalenge whereas you make a such beautiful participation ^^. Grrmbl I will try but i'm sure to loose =(.
