It was drawn as a concept of a boss for the game we're working on. For a few reasons gameplay concept took slightly different direction, so i'll keep it here.=)

Update: All right, i've fixed some spoted issues (not all of it =), The B.O.B., Doppleganger, [Maestro] - thanks guys for a help, i appreciate it.=)

No comment.

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) at 7/21/2009 8:51:00 AM

The depth in this piece is simply amazing. It looks 3D!

I think that's due to a combination of smooth animation and fantastic art.

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) at 6/26/2009 2:33:00 PM


JosephSeraph (Level 1 Rookie) at 6/20/2009 3:57:00 PM

happy bacchus (Level 1 Thug) at 4/7/2008 5:06:00 AM

Awesome! Feels like it'll just pop out of the screen at any second!

LegacyCrono (Level 1 Rookie) at 2/8/2008 8:25:00 AM

Whoa, that's awesome!! For some reason, it reminds me that old SHMUP game, Parodius...

Great work, and fav'ed!

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/24/2008 11:14:00 AM
It is perfect.
I would love to play that game you're working on, if it has pixel art like this in it.

Rare Cabbage (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/3/2008 7:34:00 AM
Absolutely amazing. Funny, too, The expression is rather odd though.
The animation is amazing. You made the shell move perfectly.
Amazing work.

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 1/1/2008 11:01:00 PM
Fcking incredible 5/5 favorite, the works. lol.

Unbelievably beutiful and amazing peace of work! You must be really a genius!

DevonR (Level 1 Intern) at 11/3/2007 6:33:00 PM
The shell movement is quite interesting. It is amazing how you are able to rotate and turn objects in 2D, and make them look like a moving 3D object. I find this very difficult, but you excel at it!!!

Luna (Level 1 Depressed) at 10/31/2007 9:03:00 AM

Beautiful colors, animates smoothly, and a fantastic fantasy character design.  Very nice!

ATinyDot (Level 1 Depressed) at 6/12/2007 9:03:00 AM
oh my  that is just marvellous! Howver i must say at first it made me chuckle  it reminds me of Jabba the Hut from Star Wars

vorofikin (Level 1 Depressed) at 4/10/2007 4:14:00 AM
Well, I like all your works, but this one is best imo. This 3d effect is just great.

gokuhssj3 (Level 1 Rookie) at 4/7/2007 1:39:00 PM
oh ..... my ......... freaking ...... GOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JESUS !!!!!!!!! THIS IS AW_ SOME "FAJI!"KK!"$"!$$!$!

Darien (Level 2 Dealer) at 3/25/2007 11:15:00 PM
Wow, I can't believe I missed this. This is really awesome, design wise and of course the animation is just insane... man keep it up, you've got such a unique style in the pixelling community, it's really refreshing. As Larwick said, the shell seems a little thin, like it's not with the right perspective, but meh

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 3/16/2007 12:13:00 AM
Marvelous! I like the detail reflection in the eye moving, nice touch!

MirandaRose (Level 1 Rookie) at 3/10/2007 5:12:00 PM
Absolutely amazing.

PlasticOrchard (Level 1 Rookie) at 2/15/2007 10:01:00 PM
reminds me of jabba the hut. I like it!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) at 2/11/2007 5:23:00 PM
I havent commented on this yet??!

Absolutely pro, of course. The shell seems a tad thin however, for some reason. Maybe you could look into that when you next animate something similar. But seriously, this is excellent.

Imp (Level 1 Rookie) at 2/11/2007 8:43:00 AM
I just can't believe this is done in pure pixel. You must be some sort of pixel genius!

seakingelebit (Level 1 Depressed) at 2/2/2007 9:04:00 AM
if he were walking backword he wqould be cleaning up his slime trail, that would be a really cool detail.

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) at 1/3/2007 8:23:00 PM
Ohh what I wouldn't do to climb inside your head and suck out your brains. So much knowelage and imagination. Just...just...well ... AWE inspiring. I havent seen anything this good since the days of Metal slug. Where do you find the time to cope with such a task. I start off enthusiastic when I start a mammoth game, but by the end im nearly  always glad to see the back of it (this animation surely must have drove you Well all I can say is that your work is an insperation to me, I truly love pixel animation and yours is some of the finest that ive ever seen. Keep up the good work fool.

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) at 1/2/2007 11:34:00 PM
I love the fact that you didnt make any "shortcuts" with this animation, but bravely used all three dimensions even it must have added loads of work.  This is absolutely stunning piece.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) at 1/2/2007 6:48:00 AM
I never understoond where some people get time and energy to create something so professionaly done, detailed and animated.
Must be either black magic or some special techniques I want able to learn during my 15years of pixeling.
(Im deeply depressed now and will go find some dark room to think of suicide) ;)

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 1/2/2007 3:56:00 AM
We know now why your nickname is "Fool" ;) Seriously this is an AWESOME work !!!

Sweet Pepperoni, awesome work.. :o.

Sir Pimpalot (Level 1 Thug) at 12/31/2006 2:24:00 AM
Whoa...the color, detail, animation, and everything else is
...not much I can say, really. ;)

Thanks you all for the comments.=)

FlyGuy: ... winnig, loosing  - couldn't care less, all that fun which is fiiling up the gap between these two illusions just makes my day.=))

mikeful (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 12/30/2006 10:13:00 AM
On scale 1 to 5 this would be about 100. Great job with colors and animation.

FlyGuy (Level 10 Capo) at 12/30/2006 9:58:00 AM
wow're going to win top 10 with every piece this month...damn you

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 12/30/2006 3:11:00 AM
So amazing

Badassbill (Level 10 Maniac) at 12/29/2006 2:57:00 PM
 I just wish i could give it more than 8/8. Best large scale animation I have ever seen.

PedroAGontijo (Level 1 White Belt) at 12/29/2006 2:44:00 PM
This is perfect. It looks real, and it's pixelled. Only the right eyebrow animation is a bit funny. but still wow.
I guess this sucks for a boss. I would never want to kill it and lose sight of it! I suggest you make it invincible

Zetabot (Level 3 Private Eye) at 12/29/2006 11:46:00 AM

Nothing to say that hasn't been said. Fantastic, and favorite'd.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) at 12/29/2006 9:33:00 AM
Thanks, guys.=)

Scotteh, yeah, it will be short and long distance attacks, loosing perhaps, optionally victory dance and some misc moves animations.

NMEwithin (Level 1 Depressed) at 12/29/2006 9:29:00 AM
Great concept for a Boss and the artwork is truly amazing....great work dude, I really like this.

Scotteh (Level 1 Jukyu) at 12/29/2006 7:16:00 AM
And also, if this is the idle stance and its a boss for a game..... Are you making an attack animation?

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) at 12/29/2006 5:18:00 AM
Oh my god, THREE DEE! That is amazing.
I do think Maestro is a bit nitpicky. I only spotted those things after you pointed it out, and this was supposed to be a game design, not something to scrutinize for several minutes!
Still, it's constructive so I won't complain. Awesome piece all in all.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 9 Executioner) at 12/29/2006 5:17:00 AM
it looks... terrifying?! I would definitely want a boss such as this one to fight! :D

Well, on the other hand, if you look closely to the 234th pixel from the left, and the 132nd pixel from the top, you'll see that... uh...

just kidding. it's amazing :)

Scotteh (Level 1 Jukyu) at 12/29/2006 4:34:00 AM

stop making so much awsome stuff! 6/6 and fav'd also

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) at 12/29/2006 3:31:00 AM

damn kool, one of the best animation i've seen so far, there are even perspective-changes, wow

i must say that i havent been a fan after your controversial adam&eve piece, but your last works just changed my mind completely.. i'd give a 10 out of seven 7

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) at 12/28/2006 6:02:00 PM
Thank you all guys for the kind words.=)

Spiv, you might be right. At least my daughter tell me same thing every time she catches me talking to my car.=))

[Maestro] (Level 1 Thug) at 12/28/2006 4:18:00 PM
I know I'm being a little nit-picky here (as this piece is pretty snazzy in itself) but, if you look at the edges of the the shell, you can see a portion of ridge move inconsistently with the rest of the shell. (almost like a reversed rippled effect). Considering the shell itself is supposed to be rigid and hard, the entire bit should move in unison. However, that is probably due to the error of pushing and drawing it in animation.

Another visible error that I was surprised nobody caught (but of course, let's all drown this sprite with compliments rather than actually try to help with the errors), is towards the underside of the forward arm, you are able to see the flashing of light coloured texture pixels that shouldn't be there. The transition of colour from light to dark remains constant  as the body moves into the shell (btw, this error appears on the fourth frame, if you are interesting in fixing it). Good job otherwise.
