This. Took. Forever.

Seriously, this is the closest I've ever cut it with a challenge entry. *phew*. Finally over with. It was so tough for me to fit it all into 32 colors :p Most of the hero's palette and the HUD had to be taken from the background and boss sprite.

Anyway. Suppose it would be some sort of Castlevania clone game. That's the vibe I'm getting from it. If anyone is interested the version without the HUD elements can be seen here.

This is really nice work - would look just right in an early 90s Capcom game...

AtskaHeart (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/24/2013 09:13

 Awesome mockup!

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 11/3/2011 02:00

I guess you already know that I really like this and the thing I am still wondering of are your amazing moons. This is definitely an all-times favourite from myself.

Psychotron-3000 (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/21/2010 00:32

I love the energy and the background! So ominous and well handled!

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/28/2010 21:57

nice thing in the right 

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 9/18/2009 17:58

I don't think that's it.  Despite you being the artist and the context of the situation, I think the phantom of the opera guy is simply suggesting a good book to read, and happens to be using the The Force to give mr. eviscerated by a satyr puppeteer guy the book.


Way to go on stomping the competition.

Vectomon (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/26/2009 10:37

I fell in love with the clouds <3

I usually dislike colorfull clothings, but this is awesome.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/25/2009 18:11

Probably summoning a spell from the book. I don't know. Use your imagination :p

Maybe he's electrifying himself to spare the pain of being eaten?

MrSmiley (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/25/2009 16:30

 What is the character doing? I know he's attacking, but can you kinda go into detail? The dragon is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/24/2009 17:54

Not a big deal. It's just not helpful when I get an "I don't like the character because I don't like him."

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/24/2009 17:29

oh,im sorry,but the rest of the picture is awesome! ^ ^'

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/24/2009 17:07

And I'm not a fan of getting useless critique that doesn't help me in the least :p

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/24/2009 03:11

I don't like the chrctr :/

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/23/2009 10:03

this is incredible. awesome concept for a boss

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 8/22/2009 14:43

great piece. It's a little lacking a good hud but I totally love how's pixelled.

Absolutely deserves a medal ;)

TunderPhoenix (Level 2 Corporal) @ 8/21/2009 13:01

Ok I think this is the only final boss that looks like a boss. Good idea and great spriting.

Brod (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/21/2009 10:17

Reminds me of Mateus from FFXII

But I like it, it looks cool.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/20/2009 21:16

Man...I can really tell you enjoyed doing this one:) The boss is brilliant! My only crit is the few harsh dark outlines on the pillar in the background.

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/19/2009 17:24

/vote awesome job, believable sprites for a game!

x-death (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/19/2009 03:23

well you got some bad ass demon, then you look at the other guy and he looks like a fancy scarecrow that is pissed off. and i just think it should look more evil then it does so perhaps it won't looks like a fancy scarecrow.

but like i said, it doesn't matter a great deal this is still a great peice never the less.

Fenne (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/19/2009 03:04

This is awesome man. You've got my vote.

Yogurt (Level 6 Centaur) @ 8/18/2009 22:26

Not to sure I like the main character, makes me think phantom of the opera, and zorro at the same time, but with magic haha, but I dunno something bugs me about him.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/18/2009 22:03

Well, yeah. But... why should he look more evil? I'm not following :p

x-death (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/18/2009 20:51

no i don't mean the boss, i mean that small guy with the electricity book thing. i assume that was your main character right?

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/18/2009 20:20

Wait, evil looking for the MAIN character? You mean the boss?

x-death (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/18/2009 19:26

i love the peice simly can't complain about it. i would have liked to have seen something more evil looking for the main character but ahhj well still great never the less.

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/18/2009 16:46

This is top draw. I love the colourful character, however, the highlight of this piece must be the background sky and moon!

hyperbear (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/18/2009 12:51

I'm gonna go ahead and call this one as the winner.

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/18/2009 12:17

This. Looks. Awesome.

Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/18/2009 09:44

I think it looks like it could be a real game. : /


This looks awesome! I am in love. :D

jiipm (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/18/2009 05:39

It's great, but this has the same problem as everyone else in the challenge(except two or three works) that it does not look like a real game =/

Joshr_691 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/17/2009 23:18

Looks Excellent

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/17/2009 10:47

Definitely top notch work. The background is gorgeous.

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/17/2009 08:31

OMFG this is awesome.. winner for sure!!!

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/16/2009 19:07

I think it's really clear cut and a great design, boss and the mockup. great work!

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 8/16/2009 18:41

I actually love the boss and the scylla-like base, actually i love everything but the character ^_^

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/16/2009 17:50

looks great, the background is probably your most impressive work I've seen, imo

I agree that the boss looks weird but then again what boss doesn't ;P

(ps do you happen to have MSN/AIM?)

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/16/2009 15:46

Looks great. easy to read too.

blackmoondev (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/16/2009 15:45

 This is sooo great. 

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/16/2009 15:41

Y'know, I was going to do arms. Then I got lazy...

I wasn't really sure how to handle them. Like, if I should have them coming up out of the ground, or something. It probably would've been a bit too cluttered to just have them sticking out as normal arms would be...

To be honest, I wasn't really sure what I was doing with the boss at all :p That's why it kinda degenerates into a bunch of blobby faces at the bottom.

Hydronium (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 8/16/2009 15:31

This is amazing! It's just a little unclear what's going on with the person inside of the boss, but other than that, great wrok!

After seeing all these amazing entries, I'm a little nervous to submit my own.

Hysteria (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/16/2009 15:31

Incredible : D!

This already won the challenge, but I think that it would be better if the boss had arms, mainly the right one. Just my opinion :).

Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/16/2009 15:20

You, sir, win an internetz.

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/16/2009 15:01


jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/16/2009 14:48

Wowwie mowwie! This is drawn excellently!

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/16/2009 14:48

wow, that's really impressive

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/16/2009 14:42

These submissions get better and better! Will it ever stop?!!!

Prototailz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/16/2009 14:35

Looks great, but it doesn't really have that final boss/epic battle feeling.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/16/2009 14:32

This = Awesome

This = Win
