 Very realistic. Great job.

PinBall (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/28/2012 04:26

How did you do the hair? When I try to draw it, it looks so weird that I always give up on the drawing...

bobowitzbob (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 10/25/2011 11:59

How on earth did you manage to do this in MS Pain?

I never did love the style of pixle art  you did on the faces but it's still really good.

SacreDoom (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/23/2011 07:20

 The faces look misplaced.

HummingBird (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/25/2010 12:18

I just LOVE the hairs. They are so realistic. Fav!

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 1/19/2010 21:47

The male elf dudes appear to be missing the back of their craniums.

Evilagram (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 12/17/2009 06:31

Very nice for the faces from the front, but the ones on the side are constructed rather awkwardly.

JosephSeraph (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/20/2009 12:06

very nice, except for the second one (dark skin, white hair) because his hair is too contrasting.

Just... *_* you have such talent *__*

awesome. 158 colours?! You must be a demigod to keep track of allthese colours ...

imera (Level 1 Private) @ 5/26/2009 05:02

Love the whole intergalactic style :) the outfits are also really great, lovely shading

Hydronium (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 1/26/2009 18:29
I think AAing the hair would really improve this piece.

kotchomet (Level 1 Private) @ 11/8/2008 12:52

my god, you did this in Paint? seriously? how long have you been doing pixel art?

DraKenZ (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/13/2008 02:11
Nice! It shows all kinds of race!

balls01 (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/6/2008 03:32
i think there are some anatomy problems with the purply guys face round the nose area

Hdan (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/3/2008 08:51
It's wonderful, I love the style, the idea and the realisation of course^^
Good luck for your futures creations and for your site wich is very beautiful too ;)

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/20/2007 02:20
It badly needs AA and the proportions on the male faces looks a litte bit distorted. Except that, this one is pretty good. ;)

Koch (Level 6 Tsathoggua (The Horror in the Museum)) @ 11/28/2007 11:50
Space rules, the hair is awsome.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/30/2007 08:28
lmao they are ugly but nice pixel!

RockinArtistShotgunGirl (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/24/2007 21:43
I think the people all look ugly. but nice illustration

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 4/23/2007 00:49
This is kind of disappointing. The picture is great, but the hair on the far right gets cut off. And downloading the pictures shows that it really looks beautiful. Possibly my favorite part of the whole picture. Superb illustration, in any case.

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/5/2007 07:18
Ack! So beautiful!

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/24/2007 06:26
OH MY GOODNESS so much detail in somethign so big  i couldnt handle anything that big well done

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/23/2007 10:15
This looks so....  Photoshopped,  but i trust the fact its Done in paint,   Just amazing... [6/6 +Fav]

DanX3 (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 10/8/2006 13:21
 Amazing =]

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/7/2006 08:00
Impressively detailed. Amazing work.

BlackFang (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/5/2006 09:42
i prefer the small pic than the full ^^ the red haired girl is way better than the others.

lordcrazy22 (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 6/19/2006 22:43
wow amazing work. i'm not sure what is better the faces or the clothes. 5/5 from me.

Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 5/3/2006 13:02
Also a very lovely piece. Just one question why does it look like the 2nd character is looking at something else? I also love the different textures on the characters clothing its amazing!

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/17/2006 08:46
o.o five stars. I wish I could do 6 :'(. And by 6, I mean 600. Because this just rocks.

mutantenemy (Level 5 Serial Killer) @ 2/25/2006 19:05
"jaw drops down to basement"

manxana (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/19/2006 20:14

I don't like it >_>


LOL joking this is amazing o_O! the only thing I can see is a problem in the face of the third one :P anyway nice work

mrmean (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/19/2006 08:44
the nightelves reminds me of lineage...

DeathByChris (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/19/2006 06:32
80 hours huh, damn this would take me over 200 hours. i think the girl in red is the best out of the bunch.

Leath (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/18/2006 15:39
I bow before your patience! *bows*
Astonishing picture. Very beautiful ladies, nice colors, interesting idea! Deserves a 6 out of 5. =)

gigi (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 1/18/2006 12:57

5 all the way! this is amazing! great job


Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/18/2006 09:51
This is really amazing.

For some CC, I do feel like the perspective on the second elf from the left is a bit off. And some of the ears seem odd with the shading.

But the clouds and the planets are well done, especially given the lack of reference. Excellent work!

BruceJuice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 1/17/2006 14:31
I had to give it a 4 because of the two guy's faces. They looked a bit flat and it took away from the overall quality of the piece.

MadMage (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 1/17/2006 14:21
Really.... Hard to believe something like that can be made on good old paintbrush.... Perhaps I culd try something like that on a vector program such as corel or illustrator... Even harder to believe it took only that long to be finished and only 185 colors.... Trully amazing. No words to describe it. 5 stars, favorite,... If ever I make half of it I'd be satisfied!

Frario (Level 6 Made) @ 1/17/2006 14:15
OMFG, This is heaven, I love the sky, OMFG THAT ATMOSPHERE AND THE CHARACTERS 5 and fav :o :o :o

Citizen_Insane (Level 1 White Belt) @ 1/17/2006 10:53

gackt like the gackt from japan that's going to be in dirge of cerberus?

5 stars, btw..  and fav.. good job, seriously

Mr. Hyde (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/17/2006 09:47
Woah!  Five stars!  Truly a masterpiece.

lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/17/2006 09:14
WOW! So awesome! Such awesome detail and colours.... everything's awesome about it! Easily a fav and +5.

Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 1/17/2006 05:27
O my God!!! One of you the best pixel. I'm a fan of you!! 113651 points and favourite!! 

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/17/2006 02:44

Brian the Great (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/17/2006 01:54
Zomg! Respect for succeeding so well with such resolution.

My guess is that this will eventually be on the first page on the Hall of Fame.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/17/2006 00:07
Nice pixel work. I don't think the foreground and background go together but that does not take away from the obvious effortthat went to make this plus according to you description for the big piece.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/16/2006 23:55
Amazing... 5 stars and a favourite for sure.
