khorin (Level 1 Private) at 1/27/2007 4:20:00 PM
Thanks for providing the WIP!

I must say you did a great job with the composition as well bringing attention to depth by going the atmospheric route. Truly beautiful indeed.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/21/2007 3:01:00 AM
Thanks ens and dra_chan :D

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) at 1/21/2007 2:22:00 AM
your good, but you knew that.  i love the effects you use to add so much depth

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) at 1/7/2007 12:35:00 PM
Best mamuts ever!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/4/2007 12:39:00 PM
big brother: Yes, you are right, it also bends a little at places, I just went with misshaped as opposed to perfect handle, it is also supposed to angle forward slightly, i hope it doesn't look too bad :D The leader eye color is also in the mammoth eyes. I did use a few colors too many, haha, i was aiming for 32.

2dgamers: Haha, I should work on my games more

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/4/2007 11:47:00 AM

Didn't notice it at first, but the spear closest to us seems to vary in thickness. I feel ashamed to even bring up this niggle. :)

Are the leader's eyes a unique color?

2dgamers (Level 1 Jukyu) at 1/4/2007 8:32:00 AM
buloght, now I understand why you can't make a game... you're too busy making these wonderful masterpieces!!! If game design cramps your style in any way, I'd say forget the games and keep making these wonderful images. Great job, as always.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/4/2007 8:11:00 AM
Thanks for kind comments :)

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/4/2007 7:11:00 AM

Fantastic! Really clean and crisp and it sets a great mood.

Have a 'fav' on me!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) at 1/3/2007 2:07:00 PM
Sheer visual wonderment.

trandon (Level 1 Rookie) at 1/3/2007 4:39:00 AM
this pice is awsome

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) at 1/2/2007 11:37:00 PM
Oh this is lovely. I like your style a lot, and this piece has its own mood. Rock on!

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) at 1/2/2007 5:53:00 AM
Lovely work on this buloght. In my opinion this one creates the best sense of depth of all of your scenes. I really dig the mix of grey/blue, the snow in the foreground and the blue outlines on the mammoths in the background. The simplified trees are also very effective. Great stuff mate.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/2/2007 3:26:00 AM
Sorry for double post.

Mrmo tarius: thanks!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/2/2007 3:25:00 AM
big brother: Thank you. And for all your advice over the last year.
darth: thanks darth :)
ZoSo: Thanks
horcy: Thanks!
ElectroNico: Thanks!
jalonso: Thanks haha, I don't usually start with highlights, but I got stuck with the fur trying to fo from shadow, I needed to know where the final fur/snow highlights/light would be.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 1/2/2007 12:21:00 AM
Great pixel, duh. That WIP was a true visual delight.
I found it most interesting that you too begin shading with highlights.

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 1/2/2007 12:13:00 AM
Greaaaaaaat Work !!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 9 Executioner) at 1/1/2007 6:08:00 PM
Amazing. And the WIP picture can teach many a thing :)

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) at 1/1/2007 2:29:00 PM
awesome piece. amazing 5/fav

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/1/2007 1:20:00 PM

(removes hat)

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) at 1/1/2007 1:00:00 PM
I love all your work, one of my favorite pixel artists on this site :o..

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) at 1/1/2007 12:49:00 PM
I get home from a weekend at the beach and I see the snow ... What a way to ring in the new year ;)

Outstanding work my friend!  You keep improving with each piece.

And the WIP was great to see!  Keep on keeping on man!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/1/2007 12:11:00 PM
Cure: I'd say Fool and Snake is taking over the monthly competitions. Haha, I know you've got something up yer sleeve for this month

Fool: I am jealous of every aspect of your work. You and snake are fast becoming my favourite pixellers.

RED, nihilyst, Mirre, equinoxx, krysis: Thank you

cure (Level 10 Capo) at 1/1/2007 11:32:00 AM
Buloght, you have once again foiled my plans for a monthly trophy.  I think you, Snake, and Mirre are conspiring.

Equinoxx (Level 3 Stalker) at 1/1/2007 11:16:00 AM
this is awesome the lighting is ace and I really love how natural it all looks

Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) at 1/1/2007 8:51:00 AM
This piece is just great! I really like how you've captured the feeling of a storm with it snowing like that, the dark sky, heavy shading, and the other scouts sort of blurry. I can practically hear the wind, hehe. I really like the snowflakes too. What an awesome piece!

Krysis (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 1/1/2007 7:49:00 AM
You rule, sir. I love this! Awesome job!

nihilyst (Level 2 Flatfoot) at 1/1/2007 7:48:00 AM
As always ... a mindblasting piece of art. 5

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) at 1/1/2007 7:44:00 AM
Great as usual - your sence of perspective makes me jealouse.=)) Style just awesom  - the whole scene has that magic myazaky feel.=)

REO THE FOX (Level 8 Shodan) at 1/1/2007 7:18:00 AM
Knew this was yours,amazing as ever!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 1/1/2007 6:38:00 AM
Thanks guys :D.

Omegavolt: thanks, I also love to see WIP from people.
