Got to looking at my Nagol The Destroyer piece and decided he needed some friends.  This is also a spiritual successor to my Terrifying Monsters piece.

Influenced by 80's/early 90's action figures and cartoons.

PATBUTCHER (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/19/2009 17:30

this is raz, extremeley good pallete work

Rose (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2009 19:42

I might just have to do these in fuse beads, too, like I did your Terrifying Monsters!  If anyone is interested in checking out my plastic versions of the Monsters, check out   Logan, your stuff is amazingly sick and wonderful!

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/16/2009 19:51

 Cool, my favorite is the 2nd red guy in the third row. He looks like he has a tomato for a head.

bricl (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/15/2009 18:14

yeah lol last night i figured it out, pretty simple eh? thanks for the heads up.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 3/15/2009 13:15

not if you vectorize them and preserve the pixel work instead of redrawing thme in a vector-ish fashion.

TomF (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/15/2009 03:38

Whilst not quite as interesting as the terrifying monsters, these are still very awesome. I really want to reach into the screen and pull one out.

bricl (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/14/2009 21:34

but that wouldn't be pixal art anymore..

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 3/14/2009 00:13

you'll have better results if you just vector them.

bricl (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/13/2009 02:33

if i could i would print this and put it on my wall.

does anyone know of a program that can blow up pixel images bigger without distorting it?

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/11/2009 20:48

These rock. it would be fun to print and mount them on foam-core at about 6 inches and prop up around the office for decor.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/11/2009 19:56

 Looks good man =)

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/11/2009 14:00

They all are awesome, but my favorite is still nagol (but they all are kick ass awesome).

Anyway I thin there is a lack of ridiculous animal heads like hippo, elephant, snake etc., like the Battle Beasts.

And I think Battle Beasts are much cooler than the actual toys

Reo (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 3/11/2009 07:35

I loved my 80's/early 90's toys :D

This is rad!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 3/11/2009 00:54

feels like one of those is about to pop up from your happy meal in any second.

PS: that indiana jones-esque text up there sack uss.-

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/10/2009 19:40

Unfortunately, it must have been past my time, I don't recall battle beasts, however I would still likely collect these, if they were toys, they are just far too cool.

It's true that they all might look a bit similar in style, but honestly, I like them like that. You can tell they're part of a set, they compliment each other in the set. Anyways, they just look really good.

I like how you modeled most of them after some kind of creature, or role. (I see a bull, eagle, ninja, and a samurai)

I suppose I'll say my favorites.. They are 3, 10, 11, 13, 14, and 15 (2 and 4 are also pretty cool) Heck, I love just all of them.

Christoballs (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/10/2009 18:31

The first one and seventh one are my favourites :)
Goo work!

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/10/2009 16:07

This is mad rad. I love your art man, always have.

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/10/2009 10:18

Cheers.  Was trying to remember what they reminded me of.  Battle Beasts yup.  Which I originally started collecting cos of their link to the Transformers but mine all got stolen.   Anyways yeah these be definitely the sorta thing I could imagine collecting and trading with friends at school. 

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/10/2009 08:45

Lollige:  I see what you're saying.  Going with the 80's/early 90's toy thing though (google Battle Beasts), they really aren't supposed to be completely different.  Similar style of armor/general body shape with a good deal of individual differences.

Arachne:  I limited myself to 7 colors (black constant) on each individual alien, which might account for what you've described.

Panda: Tomato Barbarian is probably my favorite too.

df0: Heh, I see you already mentioned battle beasts while I was writing my response.

df0 (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/10/2009 08:44

Man, I loved the terrifying monsters, and these are great too. No. 3 and 10 are favs. The silhouettes might be similar, but each one is still unique with suitable details. It reminds me more of Battle Beasts (which i loved as a kid) more than he-man.

Antiboton (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/10/2009 08:32

They are all great! I will fav this. Good work.

rehugun (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/10/2009 07:45

Nice job cure.

Panda (Level 3 Stalker) @ 3/10/2009 07:17

The colors totally give the 80~90's toy feel, so they are fine the way they are.

My favourite is the 10th one, the one that looks like a tomato with a scar.

Now go make them into toys and the collector in me will make me buy them all :B

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/10/2009 06:46

The colours aren't that different from eachother, wich might make the characters look more smimilar than they are, mix up the colours a little. They look great overall tho'!

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/10/2009 06:41

seconding dumbo here. bubblehead, four eyes, three eyes, two eyes, one eye, horns, tentacles.. enough variantion for me. faved.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/10/2009 06:20

I don't get what the others are complaining about. These are wonderful indeed!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 3/10/2009 05:04

Wow! These remind me of the old He-man figures! Great job!

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/10/2009 03:52

If these had been actual toys it's likely I would have owned them as a kid and got the whole set.  I really like the designs and the color schemes remind me greatly of toys from the late 80's and early 90's

Arachne (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/10/2009 03:31

Wonderful designs, but I think the color choices leave something to be desired. Since there is no variation in the color of different parts of their bodies or different parts of armor, they're not far enough away from being the same character repeated with hue change as the only difference. The use of color in your terrifying monsters varied a lot more and made them look much more interesting together.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine will have to be number 7, the purple-green one, although I also like numbers 1, 5, 12 and 14. :)

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 3/10/2009 02:55

be shure that I like them :) All have something interesting ... my favourite is on the second row first from left :) Also see that we have a woman hahaha

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/10/2009 02:51

jeez lollige dont be a hater

if this lalala higher rating lalala maybe next time lalala

are you really looking to nitpick that hard?

how much better can this get?

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/10/2009 02:34


Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/10/2009 01:56

Hmm, the terrifying monsters were that good because they were all different. These feel all the same (even though they are not.)

That makes me feel the whole group is not any better than one loose. Maybe if you picked the 5 best and different ones, I would have given a higher rating, but chances are that just one of them is the best.

However, you have again used that style of yours I really like very well, and produced something awesome!
