thankseh for the comments!  Saboteur, you wont find any arguments from me, i agree on all the points youve mentioned. I think one of the issues is that while i was pixelling him, he completely transformed form what i had originally intended and i think i sort of ran away with individual features instaed of considering them as a whole. also i look at the color work and im wholeheartedly disappointed in its quality, still feels like i can do much much better.

having said that, i still consider this as a warm up piece as its been a few months since ive been able to dedicate time to 'pixel' something for fun. ive got more progress that ive made, but im giong to wait again to post until im completely satisfied methinks?

Not bad! Not bad! Stoven, you're easily one of the best I've ever seen!

Not really THAAAAT impressed, to be honest. I mean, still a hell of a lot better than I can do, but not quite as awesome as you can achieve. Couple 'o crits:

The cape doesn't seem to be getting blown back to the same degree as the robe and his lower genie-like self.

His bottom half fades indefinitely. I'd almost like to see it more clearly shown as connected to him. First glance I thought it was some... spell... thing he was casting, or something.

WHERE. is your lightsource? Not doubting that you have one, just... legitimately asking. I mean, the top and bottom of his robe are highlighted, and the fingers on his one hand are practically glowing (whereas his palm is almost black) and his whispy lower portion is brightest in the center, as opposed to an edge.

One last thing. The brightness of the lower half and the sleeve bring attention to them, rather than to the face or some other distinguishing feature. It's almost hard to look at the face, which was very well done, btw.

Don't take this as it sucking, because it very much doesn't. Just... I don't see it as the awesome that you've produced before.

This is totally amazing! It has such a classic SNES feel to it, for some reason... And the colors used set each other off perfectly, 5+.

So cool! I love to particular shade of purple you used for his skin. It makes him look like hes almost glowing...

this is really cool, you should add some smoke whispyness coming off him for alittle extra detail.

Wow, that's freakin' awesome. Fav'd.

I take it judging GGZ's Spriting Contest has really got you in the mood to sprite, huh?

WOW! I love how all of the colors seem to go with each other so well. Also i like how it looks like he is moving back. The shading is absolutely amasing, very very realistic. You did an awsome job!
