Good work on the animals, but yeah, the stage kills te mood. Its too simple and that sub in the background is too a mystery. There aint any lines goin into it and it just might be  a wall. Id work on the stage, but I quess its late to start doing anything now...

 Woah, I didn't know you were theromanempire on DA! Pretty awesome. 

And I love the shading. 

Cilein (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 11/11/2010 12:21

love the characters, great life breathed into the croc and bear especially

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/17/2010 11:42

really cool and fun!

TKNy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/28/2010 04:51

an Octopus playing the drums is a clever idea ,)  <--( wink with my only eye!)

lytron (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/12/2010 08:25

Really like the colo(u)rs, the idea... the crocodile's mimic.

molloyy (Level 2 Dealer) @ 10/28/2009 15:46

your octopi always impress me.

i know that you would rather have constructively critical comments than complimentary ones, however, so i will say that the one thing that gets me, and i only noticed this after looking into it more closely, is the angle of the stage.  i feel that the angle from the bottom should be more obtuse.  otherwise the stage would have to be a lot larger than the piece suggests, assuming that the band is center stage.

i love the lighting effects, the expressions of the animals, and especially the animals themselves.

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/17/2009 09:22

That Gator is rocking that banjo! :D

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/31/2009 02:20

nice.. but the background is annoying,idk why,but he's annoying..><

Semmu (Level 1 Private) @ 8/31/2009 01:29

nice style and funny description :D

Fuzion Creative (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2009 21:44

Very nice style.  Really like the color choices, the alligator in particular.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/30/2009 13:18

Well at least some one did a decent octopus on the drums.
I had the same idea but you executed it better me thinks.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/26/2009 21:13

I agree as well. Honestly, they are more or less pasted on. I'd already created the characters before learning the exact size specifications, and thus had to "cram" a bit more than intended. They now rest in their current spots because I didn't want the spot lights to overlap and recolor stuff, though in retrospect it probably wouldn't have been much work.

Basically it was about the characters so I let myself get lazy with the background. It was even uglier before.

AngelOTG (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/26/2009 19:36

/agrees with Tadashi

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/26/2009 13:18

Like everyone else says, the colours are very nice :) The pixels on the animals are wonderful, but picture itself is lacking in composition. They all seem so far apart, and the stage doesn't seem to project any sort of perspective, making them look "pasted on", and making the edge of the stage at the bottom right and the speaker look a bit ugly in comparison to your lovely characters.


Great job, though! That bear with the fiddle is probably the best thing I've seen all week. :D

Folk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/26/2009 07:16

aww it's soooo cute! i can't decide which of them is the most!

Yogurt (Level 6 Centaur) @ 8/24/2009 17:45

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/24/2009 07:45

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/24/2009 01:22

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 8/23/2009 20:04

Beautiful characters, and of course: Colors :)

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/23/2009 19:53



nice work /vote

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/23/2009 19:25

yeah, i've got four hours. I can think of something for the stage I guess.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/23/2009 19:24

Only in Alabama.

This is delicious Cure style - very neat and tidy :3 I love the animals' textures.

My only real complaint is that I can't figure out what that middle horizontal line is - A step? Part of a wall?  Part of curtain?

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/23/2009 19:04

 Love it! This is getting one of my votes! :)

Kylo (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/23/2009 19:04

 great work

Scarodactyl (Level 8 Ruby) @ 8/23/2009 18:01

Fun stuff!  Great expressiveness and characterization. 

Gerardo Alba (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/23/2009 17:51

I like the colours you used for this.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/23/2009 17:48

Knew it was yours before clicking. I like the character of the characters.  (?)

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/23/2009 17:25

the stage is lazy :c

the characters themselves look really great though! very nice

but bluegrass? i'm sorry we can't be friends anymore...


onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/23/2009 17:09

nice! this is win! ^^... i like how you combined the character of the animals with their instrument, almost fable-like :D..

bg is a little empty, but... yeah... ^^
