looking good!

 I love the use of black, very neat style.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/22/2010 23:25

Beautiful as usual, but it seems a little less refined than your normal stuff. Might be the heavier use of black or something

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/22/2010 19:09

awesome. frikin awesome

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/21/2010 19:25

i made a topic for more monsters in the WIP forum, i'll be posting new ones in there until i get enough for a mass-entry.

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/21/2010 17:54

please submit the second soon!! your  work is very inspireational. if im ever feeling uninspired i jut have to head over to my favs and look at one of your pieces

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/21/2010 03:35

Really love the style here...       

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/20/2010 13:38

already made a second :P

working on a third now (non-slimy though, just the same style), may save them up for a mass entry though.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 8/20/2010 13:20


Pliz do more.

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 8/19/2010 16:29

Correction cure.  Your's is much better, but mine is the sexiest.     lol

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/19/2010 16:23

well yes, obviously mine is the sexiest.

may have a point on the lack of sliminess, I might go back in and add more speculars or somethin'.

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 8/19/2010 16:20

Awesome one, great job. Not very slimy though.

Heh, thanks for the nice words but yours is stronger and way sexier (:

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/19/2010 16:06

 your monsters are always good! XDDD... i enjoy them a looot :DDD

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/19/2010 15:46

I hope that's not so, frostpumpkin's entry was much more original! And no less well-pixelled, only less detailed.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/19/2010 14:54

ok, the Pumpkin has the 2nd place.... You won. 

jazcks (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/19/2010 14:15

omg, we've a winner

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/19/2010 13:55

The black shade gives is a nice depth, and it's certainly detailed!

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 8/19/2010 13:26

How the hell do you know where to put those pixels?  Very nice!

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 8/19/2010 13:12

Looks super. Love the shadows.

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 8/19/2010 12:44

supreme use of colours and great character design... and it looks like a toad with tentacles so I have to love that no matter why...

ev149 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/19/2010 12:38

Nice job!  Doesn't seem slimy at first glance, though.  It's only when I zoom in that I notice it. 

blackmoondev (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/19/2010 11:48

 cool one!

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/19/2010 11:43

 Definitely saw Frankie in this piece, but I knew it was made by Cure. Looks great. 

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/19/2010 11:37

@Niss: updated, hopefully fixed that jagged back.

@Jal: Frankie came to mind while making this. lotsa black, and the somewhat muted palette with bright purples probably adds to it.

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/19/2010 11:16

Nice work 

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/19/2010 11:14

@Niss: Yeah, I noticed that problem too, just couldn't think of a fix. good ideas, i'll try 'em out.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/19/2010 10:59

Snap! Third time I'm fooled...swore it was gonna be by Frankie o.O

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/19/2010 10:12

That looks great cure!

Colors and the idea are very cool, my only nitpick might be the jagged look of the back outline on the back - mind, the pixel placing itself is sound there, it only looks jagged because of the large black shading block(the black outline on the front part works fine because of the birght shades next to it). Secondary lightsource or other shading would easily fix that. Just a small nitpick tho.

Adorable slimey bugger!

Dark Phobia (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/19/2010 10:00

 REALLY nice! wonderful colors...
