Animation on the grass and dog are perfect! 

johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/26/2012 13:17

 The wind in the grass … <3

Kite (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/13/2010 16:26

 lol, the blood where the witch got owned. . .

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/19/2010 12:49

Beautiful work!

TKNy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/28/2010 02:56

Very nice!  I'm loving the animation on the grass, but shouldn't the skirt move too? (:

Papermoon (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/26/2010 12:17

she looks very pretty. =) thanks for sharing. i like how the wind breeze blows through the grass and everything looks so typical, especially the dog.

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/6/2010 13:07

wow i didnt even know you edited it once more, looks perfect now 

Rain Maker (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/23/2010 14:52

really cool being animated!

Syosa (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/20/2010 05:23

I'm always seeking new style and always modifying according to your comments.

I knew scrolling square shadow break a third dimension, but I want to try the strange 2-3dimension style. Because it may be able to illustrate fantasic and chaotic atmosphere...

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/17/2010 06:25

There's an animation change everytime I look :)

heyy13 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/16/2010 05:18

I must agree with Vertigo-Zero, the squares ruin the image! D:

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/16/2010 02:15

Very nice work, except there seems to be a strange yellow glow around the lettering?

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/15/2010 03:28

why did you add th scrolling squares in the shadow? Ruins the pic!

Victor Rojo (Level 10 King Ghidorah) @ 1/14/2010 15:20

perfect dog. wuof! love all

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/14/2010 13:56

Love the animation of the dog.

TioLuko (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/14/2010 04:15 are insanely wicked talentous O.O

You caged my eyes once again T.T


Congrats man...  no more words^^


See ya

Phones (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/11/2010 20:25

Love how you use a purple like that as shading. I always loved that effect. Tis a shame it's not used more often!

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/11/2010 16:39

This is neat, i love the wood on the house

Petrichor (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 1/11/2010 12:58

Shawn: Interestingly, they're silver in the book. They were made red for the movie because the moviemakers wanted to showcase the fancy colour technology.

This is adorable: I think the solid flats really work, actually, and the woodgrain is amazing. I agree that having the witch's legs completely gone is a little confusing at first, given Dorothy's adorable stumpfeet. Nice animation, as always.

rikfuzz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2010 03:56

I really love how you approach your palette. You have such great hue ramps with no blacks - it works so well with the high detail-contrast in your artworks.

Maru (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/10/2010 18:10

Wow! Really really cute! I love how you did the wood grain º__º

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/10/2010 16:27

Your style is something i really call unique, there is nobody that owns that kind of awesome style here! <3 Pro from Osaka /kneel. Love your country and love your pixels!

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 1/10/2010 09:59

i guess the shoes were red with the witches blood.

super cute stuff! i love the wood texture.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/10/2010 08:12


But I wouldn't notice/understand the squashing without the description, and the blood without the comment. Her expression doesn't reflect anything unusual happened.

TheManuz (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/10/2010 06:21

As Jeremy already said, the text AA doesn't work on dark theme.

Other than that, i like it! 

Animmaniac (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/9/2010 19:39

The only thing that bothers me is the flat purple that is not dark enough to stand as a deep shadow. The purple gives the impression that the shadow area is somewhat illuminated, making me expect at least some details. By darkening it a little I think you can diminish this impression though.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/9/2010 19:33

the wood texture is nice and all, but i can't really see her fitting the description of dorothy.


also what sharprm said. nice though 

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 1/9/2010 18:50

I dont' really like the non-sading of her legs : /, but other than that this is perfect. 

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/9/2010 18:33

maybe the witch legs should not be pulverised. Otherwise looks like dorothy chopped off her own feet.

Hydronium (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 1/9/2010 17:20

I agree a little texture in the purple shaded area would look nice, but this is great as it is. But where's Toto?

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/9/2010 17:15

 Very nice!

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/9/2010 17:06

 Beautiful as per normal :D

Agreed that the text's AA doesn't work on a darker background. *switches theme *

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 1/9/2010 16:47

This is amazing :) huge fan of you.. the only thing that bothers me is the writing on a black theme here @ PJ.. maybe it looks better on the normal one >_>

Syosa (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/9/2010 16:22

To enhance the texture of the wood and the girl, I thought I should drop a deep shadow color in relatively broad area. If I use some textile on this purple or decrease purple area, the contrast will break.

And i made red color also flat on purpose. Because I want to express her distress of first murder with this blood-like color. So I eliminated textile and shadow from red color area.

Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/9/2010 15:44

I looooove the texture of the wood. o 3o

My only critique is that all the pruple on the house flattens it out just a wee bit too much. But still, wonerful piece. Your textures and patterns rock. <3
