[size=1][color=royalblue]*points* You made sprite comics! =D

So yeah. The first thing I muttered when I came into this thread and saw the picture was, "Holy ****". Zomg, that's a huge collaboration of characters! I have a hard time doing those things. ;_;

Well...it seems you have quite a stock of pictures. Miko, Kyro, and just generally the animals, reminded me of characters in Animal Crossing. XD (Hey, I love that game...)

What all this really makes me think of is an old video game that uses highly-advanced 8-bit technology. You would get the manual, and as you look through it and see these awesome characters, you get really excited. Then you start the game, see them in their 8-bit glory, and cry a little bit on the inside. You want pretty pictures.

Magus the Hoatzin...[strike]Naruto in bird form?[/strike] >_>

I like the smooth coloring and the simple shading. You don't over-do any of it so that it looks out of place with the styling. Overall good job, but, as you pointed out, some characters need to be re-drawn or tweaked a little bit.[/color][/size]

[size=1]You have so many ([i]many[/i]) characters listed up and still they are all original. That's cool. I especially like Kuro the Kangaroo. :3

Like Katana said, the smooth colours and simple shading is nice and you don't overdo anything. Sometimes they could use some work on proportion or realistic positions. For example Bixler, who really lacks a neck, or the Macabee who's (his) left foot is in an odd position. But they all look cool and original.

Oh, and I love the little descriptions of their character next to the links. ;3[/size]

[font=Century Gothic][color=Blue][quote name='Katana][/color][/font][size=1][color=royalblue]Magus the Hoatzin...[strike]Naruto in bird form?[/strike] >_>[/color][/size][font=Century Gothic'][color=Blue][/quote]Agh, you're not the first one to see that. No one would prolly believe me if I said that the design was purely coincidental and based on an inside joke that involved godmodding.

Thank you both for the nice comments. How about some Sonic fanstuff?:

It's merely to give an idea of other stages.[/color][/font][font=Century Gothic][color=Blue]

[size=1]Oh my, I love these. o.o

Klept the Hybrid looks so clean and cool. The sponge effect kind of thing you used to make him look watery worked well.

The poodle is totally groovy. An excellent awful colour of pink. Nice details with the thing in his hair - of which I currently can't get the English name in my head - and the open jacket. Oh, and I really want that sword. The only thing about the picture that I don't really get is why the big pink blob, in which his mouth and nose are, doesn't go down again to the left side, instead of keep going up.

The Panda looks like the Kingpin a lot. And now that I write this I see you put that in his description. <<; His grumpiness is really well done and looks cool. The only thing I don't really like in this picture is the odd placement of his left foot ([i]his[/i]!). The colouring and shading are wonderful.

They all are great and probably better than the ones you've shown before. The colouring and shading on all is great and they're still original. XD[/size]

[font=Century Gothic][color=Blue]Now for some prettier pictures!

From old to new again:

[url="http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/8373/nanaekfinishedqp0.png"]Nanaek and Butterfly[/url]: Okay, so we know that I suck at making backgrounds. Nanaek had an interesting charm though, and that's why I have some pride in it.
[url="http://img127.imageshack.us/img127/3854/rossofinishedru9.png"]Rosso[/url]: Just a simple polar bear on the beach. Most of these characters aren't very complicated and were made simply for the heck of it.
[url="http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/2640/stuntshowtimegy9.png"]Stunt in Action![/url]: Here we go. This was an experiment, using the sketch lines themselves instead of tracing over them with a boring brush. Since Stunt has such an easy character design, he was the first victim and made it out without a scratch.
[url="http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/8100/calafotofa3.png"]Calafoto[/url]: A turtle that has eyes only for you, babeh. This picture [i]really[/i] needs a cleanup, but I'm too lazy.
[url="http://img506.imageshack.us/img506/7960/teenypotentialfa5.png"]Teeny Potential[/url]: Another grungy picture. I could've done a better job drawing the Trueberry parts, but ah well.


... I've [i]still[/i] got more.[/color][/font]
