yes, amazing work!

VaxKun (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/2/2017 16:17

Love it 

Hadi (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/17/2014 00:13

I like it but his left arm looks unnatural and rather twisted like it is broken.

DragonMarx (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 8/27/2012 15:37

 I really love the white hornish things protruding from the back to look like wings :)

Dyl (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/25/2012 16:52

 sweet work

had0c (Level 3 Stalker) @ 5/23/2011 21:24

 think it would look even better if you had more then 30 colours and removed the black outlining and replaced it with a more natural blending

ramazing (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 5/28/2009 02:35

the body is cool, but the face looks strange...

BeboTheBum (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2009 22:34

It's alright, the muscles look like a shitload of pebbles and the shading isnt very exellent. Compared to other work its not as good but, it is good =]

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/16/2008 12:49
Very good. Reminds me of the Magi Nation illustrations.

Heart Puppetere (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/16/2008 19:33

Lately all the pixel art is great.

Fel (Level 4 Ensign) @ 12/15/2007 11:25

Awesome colors, lineart, everything. Great work.

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/23/2007 02:21
Nicely done it's so smooth and depthy and for just one color at each place you did the AA it looks very smooth.

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/10/2007 01:24
jeez louise thats awesome i cant believe i just discovered it and i love that style its cool

bunbun (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 5/25/2006 20:57
Kay, I was just saying it look like a foruk. lolz

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/25/2006 06:53
@bunbun yeah it was magination i think. The friend of naso simply did a fanart and naso made a pixel lineart out of it. I modified it a bit, but yeah. It is magination <3

bunbun (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 5/24/2006 21:22
The character is ver y ... MagiNationy. ;P I wouldn't doubt if this was inspired by it.

Dio Weaver (Level 1 White Belt) @ 4/11/2006 09:20

The bow kicks ass

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 12/17/2005 02:44
You're the best :D

7LegionArmy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/8/2005 13:48
Yah really good design.

TheChaindog (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/19/2005 04:42
Looks really good, I like the design.

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/23/2005 08:27
AA is the easiest part usually but the character itself is too messy. I couldn't figure out where that stick is stanging, it semed like it was in the creatures leg but as I stared the picture some time more, I noticed that there was actually a glumpy hand. Right now the body parts seem to be on the same level and that makes it messy and hard to understand at first glimpse.

Zoomrix (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/11/2005 23:03
Sweet AA'ing skill bud! Good job.

n3rmin (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/7/2005 08:08
Haha, I also know the guy who made the original artwork :D Cool, really great work

 @Jaeden - Thank you for the comment, its always an honor to receive feedback from someone of your skills, yes its somehow a forest minotaur, he have moose woods, with bufallo horns. hes not realated to taurens tho

@Xero - Thank your for the comment, the string is a crystal string, very thin and very solid, almost unbreakable. :P

Xero (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/6/2005 20:53
whoah, this is REALLY well done, i especially love how you did the bow.. the only thing I don't like is that the string on the bow is only a 2 pixel thick line and I think it looks as if it would snap, but very well done, i love it.

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/5/2005 08:52

Too cool, wonderful piece, even tones, great lineart,  good light sources, (upper left and upper rear yes?)

looks like a Taur... .what ever those horde things in warcraft are... I blame my husband -_-

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/5/2005 06:18
 @The B.O.B - thank your for the comment, and those white things behind, i dont honestly know what they are, it was a friend of naso that made the drawing, naso made the lineart and i colored it, so i dont actuually know what the white things are, i interpreted it as tribal bones used maybe to carry a flag during war or something like that,But i think at first they were supposed to be wingless wings.

@Tamzqueen Thank you, those pixel muscles could rip a man apart :P

tamzqueen (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/5/2005 02:23
God look at his pixel muscles! lol great shading and colour choice. Very damn nice

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 7/5/2005 00:18
I loves it. The design of the elk-thing is kewl. One pregunta though, home slice. What the B-jizzle is the white stuff behind him. It could be something obvious, but I just can't figure it out. So please, help a beaner out.

Saiklor (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/4/2005 22:20
 yay for big pixel art! yay!!

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/3/2005 22:58
@ Darkauron - Actually its not very hard to pixel that way, you simply need a good knowledge of colors, antialiasing and lighsources, after that its simply go on with the flow. You use your sense of coherance to chek if things are good or not, and you work with colors a lot, and hues to give nice effects. then you antialias your shades to make them smooth, and you get with a wonderful image that you can be proud of.. well thats my way of doing things.

Thanks for your comments :D

DarkAuron (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/3/2005 22:51
 Wow. All that blends in wonderfully, very very good! I wish I could do pixel art that large, but alas I work in the tiny sprite field. Nothing big at all. Bleh. Isometric art might be my key to getting larger but I can't really figure out what to do in iso..

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/3/2005 21:21
 @Sedgemonkey - Well thank you, im very proud of me, at the end of my second day of work (3 hours the first, 5 hours non-stop the second) well at the end of my 5 hours.. i was soo brain burned, working like a robot

@ Garage inc. - your sure to see more of me around here, ill post as much as i can :D

@ Naso - haha thank you.. hall of fame dont make me laugh :D

@ Lawrance - Purple shades is my master and i love using dramatic hue switch in shading, thanks for the comment

@ Fr0st - Well thank you for this very expressive feeling sharing with us :P hehe

@ Wolverine - thank you

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 7/3/2005 16:06
 Just plain lovely

fr0st (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 7/3/2005 14:03

Thats All I need to describe my feelings on this piece...

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/3/2005 12:16
 I'm very fond of the shading technique on this, the way you AA the different shades. He looks like a pretty cool character too. Nice piece, this.

..::Naso::.. (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/3/2005 11:39
 Oh and i forgot to add, i think this one should be in the hall of fame =D

..::Naso::.. (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/3/2005 11:38
