Rain Maker (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/23/2010 14:50

really cool aisan theme to it...nice!!!

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/17/2010 13:52

the only thing that is wrong with this is that it uses 15 colors instead of 16.  Gotta be a multiple of 4.  ^_^  kidding, amazing work.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/17/2010 01:04

Damn Fool...I challenge you to produce something that looks like garbage. You up to it?

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/16/2010 02:14

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/15/2010 12:26

 did you have the wip ? i just loved to look how you done such amazing stuff. did it was drawing or something?

Froli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/15/2010 04:37

Another epic piece fool. It's so good that you can edit the colors with so many possiblities, thats why some of the guys are trying their own versions lol. <goes to bed and rests>

Victor Rojo (Level 9 Orchid) @ 1/14/2010 15:09

this is the highscore. first place.

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/14/2010 07:49

 you are so fuc*ing good man. just a god.  

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/14/2010 06:04

This still blows me away.

YOYOGiGi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/14/2010 05:39

Great FOOL, me too i like when you find tons of details, and the fact that you 've done it in 15 colors is a great thing too even it's monochromatic....Anyway, good job :)


chaleeman (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/13/2010 14:51

Metal Slug like palette

JJoploo (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/13/2010 14:29

Oh my gosh! That's freaking awesome! Great detail!

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 1/13/2010 13:58

This art is awesome! Sometimes I doubt abut this like pixelart but howeva, I love to apreciate talent.

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/12/2010 18:37

 Quite nearly perfect, as per usual.

Necroleachate (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/12/2010 15:46

Insane!  15 colors... did I say insane yet?

Prinny (Level 1 Private) @ 1/12/2010 13:39

 Holy crap.

joel_suke (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2010 20:00


How do you get? The colors are perfectly matching with the message that the environment you want to pass.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/11/2010 18:14

Miny flaws on dome perspectives but WOW!!!

TMH (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/11/2010 18:05

fool... you are just awsome :D

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 1/11/2010 15:12

I think the colors are fantastic.  I wouldn't change a thing.

Do you start with line art?  Basic shapes?  Something else?

Scarodactyl (Level 8 Marshal) @ 1/11/2010 14:34

I want one!

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2010 12:05

god damn! when will i ever be this great

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2010 11:34

Simply wonderful.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/11/2010 11:29

This piece was meant to be sepia...do not think that fool wanted something colorful o.O

mrduke (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/11/2010 11:11

Very beautiful!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/11/2010 10:51

First I thought "Holy fuck this dude got patience", but then when knowing it will look like this you probably could go on forever.

I Absolutely love this!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/11/2010 10:43

Thank you for attention, jointers=)

Sharprm, DownBringer, I  do appreciate your concern, but also realize it is a matter of personal preferances and I'm ok with what it is as long as I understand my choices. Sorry it not pleased you as it pleased me but it was interesting to look at it through your eyes. Thank you, guys.=)

4tochkin (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/11/2010 10:05

Cutie ;) 

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 1/11/2010 09:21

Jeez, this is the way it should look: http://i47.tinypic.com/rhop06.png

This color scheme also makes the cloud color an intermediate shade of the white specularity and the next rock color. Fool, it's ok to use one more color in your images to smooth your specularities.

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/11/2010 09:02

 LOVE the concept. Looks fantastic... I can always feel the amusement of walking into something like this

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/11/2010 07:55

HOLY F***NESS... oh wait, that's not a word? Well it should be!

JediDude (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/11/2010 06:43

 You are too good.

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/11/2010 05:56

 wow! just wow!

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/11/2010 00:41

Perspective is great - for me she contribute very much for great look of the piece. Of course all details with shadows blow me again away, like tree, broken bridge, head of the creature ets.

Bravo man!

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2010 00:16

Stop making more stuff. The awesomeness is to much. 5/5

FangsOfDevouration (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2010 23:31

I envy you sooo much xD
This looks horribly great!
The colors are amazing ^^

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2010 23:08

i still think it could use more fun colors. here is one with a pinker sky as well does that help mathias?


Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/10/2010 19:10

AMAZING!!  I love the colors so much

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/10/2010 18:52

sharprm, your edit doesn't make any sense - you "fixed" the tree and left the rest of of the scene monochromatic. placing far too much focus on the tree since it's the only thing full-color, whereas Fool's original is unified in that the entire scene is monochromatic, my eyes are better able to explore the scene without undue distraction. . .IMO.

Fool, wow it's just great. The details are amazing. The dragon building concept is fun. It's construction is very interesting. Inspirational work.

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2010 18:21

great as usual :)

more fun color scheme edits: http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e199/sharprm/dragon2-1.png

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2010 18:03

Can you stop being so good, it's freakin' me out.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/10/2010 17:58

Thanks for edit=)

Though I wasn't really going just for the fun color theme here, there is a symbolic meaning in nearly monochromatic ruins and colored tree. Besides I rather tried to catch a mood.

leeor_net (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2010 17:17

You are easily the most talented pixel artist I know. Another job very well done! :D

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 1/10/2010 16:55

The only thing that I am not sure I like so much is your colors on this. Rather than being the way they are I thought you should have lively colors :P. Don't ask why, but I tried it out of  boredom. This is the result.
