I will not work on this anymore.

Note I made the angel creature like more, since a human angel was boring.

I redid the back demons, the angel, made the scene less action to simplify things, tried to improve overall. Thanks for the following people (who I now secretly hate for making me do more work than I wanted to ):
Solid Idea, ilkke and RED.

I am starting a cause to promote Pixel Art and help Pixel Art be considered a true form of art in America, including having Pixel Art shows and the like and I was wondering if I may use this piece as an example of sorts. All righs will be given. I can undestand if you don't want me to.

This is uber beautiful! This is a testiment to just how beautiful and unique pixel art is. Now if only the art world cotton on to this style and start hanging pieces like this in galleries and earn the 'pixel painter' a justifiably hefty sum of cash 

One for me fav's.

I realy like this piece and I think that it shows off your technical skill, but I can't help but feel like something is missing, something that stops it from jumping from 'Great' to 'Epic'.

user
Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 3/20/2007 8:10:00 PM
Excellent work yet again. This time the piece feels put together much better. 

I will crit on a couple small things only because I know that you'll make the best of the crits in later works. This piece is definitely worthy of being left alone.

The first thing is the negative space in between the arm/sword/thigh of the angel guy. The main problem with this is his arm sword and thigh outline the very island itself. The result is a slight misunderstanding of what exactly is in that negative space. Looking further into it, I notice shapes and coloring not seen anywhere else in the image. Which could also have been the problem. Or at the very least contributed to it.

The other issue I have is the lack of a focal point. When I first look at the picture my eyes go directly to the giant beast's face. Shortly after they wander to the wing of the angel guy. Which isn't particularly a problem except that my eyes have nowhere to go after that. The way the eyes focus, they block out the remaining image once they get to the wings. And since all eyes are on the wings, they will want to follow them however, following the wings leads to the end of the image. So, what I'm saying is that one really has to work hard to admire all the great things in the picture. Perhaps using the islands in the background as sort of a line for the eyes to follow back to the center of the picture would've been useful. I'm pretty sure that's what I meant by the composition aspect of it last time. Maybe I should've been clearer. XD

Anyways, as I said, excellent piece. If it wasn't so good I wouldn't put forth so much effort into critiquing it.

6/6 btw

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) at 3/20/2007 1:14:00 PM
Thank you guys

The other wing is broken, the stump is that two yellow feathers thing on his back.

B.O.B: Duly noted  I am happy with his perspective (his legs are spread kinda wide) :D, though I see what you mean, his back leg places much higher in the shade. Yeah he is got some inhumane qualities and anatomy.

[B.O.B is now on my hate list ] I changed the foot angle to compliment the leg direction.

holy.... shh...... erm i mean.. awesome :D

one thing i will say is it looks like the angel only has one wing? maybe that is the case in which case i would add like a stump of some kind.. still amazing though.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) at 3/20/2007 11:57:00 AM
Noowww I can comment on it:

It's fantastico! I love the textures on the big monsters fingers, and especially the rocks in the foreground. Not to mention that the scene is terrific....and now it's time for me to be an a-hole:

   Ahem, despite it being top notch, I see a couple of issues which may, or may not need work. The angle through which the angel is in, is confusing me. The position of his legs seem to tell me that he is facing side view, but his back tells me otherwise. Also, does he only have one wing? Or is the other wing hidden, or wrapped up by rope? I know I'm especially picky about this, but the leg's anatomy is bugging me for some reason. It's really prolonged in the shin area. I'm guessing he's half man, half eagle/bird? There are others, but to be honest, it's just nit picking. I love it, and you should be satisfied enough to call done. Great effin' job, fav'd....
