Thanks Groggeneral and Zizka for the compliments.


Death to the false god! Pixels for the pixel god! He just exists in his own little universe, mainly inspired by painting rust and patina on miniatures which I find a lot of fun. But you did make me want to give him a 40k iron halo inspired design instead of the current green one (now updated).

Cool! But damn every warhammer veteran should know that the halo of a saint must be in a goldish-colour! :P The current green colour lacks any glow and it takes a few seconds to understand what it really is at all.

Other than that, I love how much character the sprite has. The little tongue, the whole posture and the once-awesome cape! Cool character! :)

As for the rust: Especially good for on the boot. Like the effect there.

I like it. Not a big fan of that green circle/halo thing though. But the rest is wicked cool.

Thanks for the compliments and critiques everyone!

@TheInternetsGirlfriend, The head is more of an accessory but it's easier to focus on it at 2x.

@Redshrike, nice find on the lyrics! I didn't actually know there was a word for saints carrying their heads around and when I looked it up there's actually a debate about where the halo should go. I guess I fall in the "where the head used to be" camp.

@Bark Snarly. The orb is a version of a halo that's typically found on artwork of religious figures. I like your suggestion for the sword shortening and I added another notch on the underside of the blade.

Woo good colours!

Colours are pretty neat although the weird orb where his head is supposed to be is a bit distracting, I thought it was a strange helmet that you forgot to shade in when I first saw it. Also the shading on the sword is a bit messy. Even if it's a pretty wrecked sword I feel like you should clean it up a bit (maybe make the end snapped off to add emphasis to how worn it is along with a few notches and slashes across it)

Though there are millions of Cephalophores

that wander through this world,

You've got something extra going on

I think you probably know.

Love your use of dithering on the chainmail. Wonderful!

MasterSky (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/5/2014 17:09

wow i love the chainmail so much!

thats some cool shit. I really like the posture and colours are perfect. Only thing I would say is its hard to notice the head under his arm but maybe that is the point? Awesome peice
