Cannot even decribe how amazing this is.

Merez (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/7/2012 10:58

 I understand when you get on our feet, is to encourage us, I know, since this is so perfect, good colors

had0c (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/27/2012 23:23

ECPixel (Level 8 Marshal) @ 1/24/2012 08:07

Thats just amazing! 

Hylst (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 8/5/2011 09:27

 Like the extraterrestrial ! Well pixed one more time !

cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/16/2011 12:36

this was made with mspaint, but I now use grafx2. keyboard shortcuts and better palette-control save tons of time

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 10:48

whoaaa, how do you make such pixelwork ? do you use photoshop pr sumthing ? i can't make such cool colors with paint, can you teach me ? :D

NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 12/30/2010 13:50

that's pretty sweet!

Cabba (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/8/2010 02:45

 Very nice :) 

JWM (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/22/2010 12:03

Very detailed! I like this a lot. It gives me somewhat of an Earthworm Jim feel.

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/16/2010 22:57

Nice one, only the planet (?) in the back looks strange.

fuzzly98 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/9/2010 02:30

 nice one


dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 4/8/2010 18:46

The only thing I'm thinking here is where is all this growing from?  I'm a big gardener so I keep on looking for some

This really has everything though.  Great composition, awesome perspective, detail and color are outstanding.  I just love the whole feel of this.  It's a classic!!!

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/8/2010 14:41

Loved watching this at Pixelation. Turned out great.

junkboy (Level 2 Peon) @ 4/8/2010 08:15

 Gorgeous stuff, Cure.

Luisyluis (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/7/2010 12:55

I love the green!

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/7/2010 04:09

I'm in love with this.

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/7/2010 02:54

I remember the WIP thread. That was a great read.

Wonderful result. Loads of things to look at, yet it remains simple and elegant.

oCo (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/6/2010 23:30

Love this.

Inspiring on many levels, and the forum threads are very interesting to look at.

Ivy00 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/6/2010 22:02

Excellent!  I love him

cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/6/2010 17:52

This is an alien from a race of space pirates who seed ships, then allow the foliage to grow until it takes control of the ship like a parasite.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/6/2010 17:32

Thinking on it now, it probably would have made more sense for it to be on a planet, in a forest somewhere, more like you originally had. The vegetation growing around the interior of the space ship make it seem as if it had crashed some time ago, and the wilderness around it was creeping in.

The only story that really seems to work for me in this case is that the alien seems to have somehow managed to start it back up and fly away. Although the watering can may be respresentative of his love of the plants; perhaps he grew them there, or just cared for them as if they were his only friends. He looks like a plant monster/alien, anyway.

Anyways, just some brainstorming there, I know it's too late to change it. It looks lovely regardless.

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/6/2010 16:28

Oooh it's finally finished. Excellent work, never though it'd work out this great!

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/6/2010 15:12

It looks fantastic! I first saw it when you just had the little guy and where trying out different backgrounds, then lost track of it. The end result was well worth the wait.

griffsnuff (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/6/2010 12:36

Oh wow this is so beautiful ;U; I love the colors and how clean this looks.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/6/2010 12:36

 rotfl I cannot believe to see this piece finished! great work at the end :) congrats

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 4/6/2010 10:13

Awesome piece. Love the colors.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/6/2010 05:50

I was wondering when you were going to get this finished. Really good piece of work.

There is something about the way the space is used that feel as though there's something missing - but maybe it's just me.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/6/2010 03:35

Loved it even when there was a grass around :) Love the colors, composition, well, everything about it.

Hapiel_old (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/6/2010 02:58

Ah, finally you put this up :)

Great work :D

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 4/5/2010 20:35

 Woah I remember seeing this song long ago, and when he was in the forest :P It's awesome to see it now though. Looks amazing :D

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/5/2010 20:19

 This is so damn inspiring, it really is gorgeous. I saw this on pixelation, the WIP was nicely done.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/5/2010 19:41

Saw this in the pixelation. For some reason, I've always liked the ship/environment, more than the character itself. I'm not sure if it's because they clash a bit(not by much, just a little), but  it's just something I've noticed.

ellie-is (Level 8 Partner) @ 4/5/2010 19:25

 Awesome, I remember the WIP thread of this from ages ago :P
Great job.

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 4/5/2010 18:51

 This is fantastic!

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 4/5/2010 18:22

I love it :D 

a3um (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/5/2010 18:18

Awesome character!

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/5/2010 18:15
