Very great work.

I have just a critique about the characters presence.
They are too transparent to me. Too much melted with the background.

I think the colours might be a little too insipid (just for the characters). You might use a highter contrast between the back and the characters.

About the monsters, the one who is on the right seems to be not so evil than the other. Maybe he is impressed by the player ;-) It would make sense to accord the two red !

Anyway you come another time with a great composition!
Congrats and keep the good stuff up!
What do you think?

I agree with Ahuri about the transparency of the characters.
I think the monsters are too "unsatured", but the atmosphere composition it's too great.

The flying rocks textures is TOO awesome! The right one is too real!

In my opinion, I may remove the biggest rock fragments, but it still awesome with it too.

The clouds are cool too, and fits exactly with the overall composition, I loved the cupid too, looks very stylish...

About the expressions of the characters, the left one looks to be planning something...

I think you could have added some more monsters...
But the work is awesome, nice techniques...

Started to hum the theme music when I saw this. Haven't played the game in at least fifteen years. Awesome impact in this one.

Love all your work! It was some time ago I saw these and was hoping you had something on Diablo game. But now, seeing all these I dont think you will make a Diablo 3 tribute. All these are cult classics.

Anyhow, if you take requests. Diablo is mine. Thanks for the wallpapers!

The textures you have created with those rocks are remarkable! Do you have any tips on painting rocks like what you have here?

I have played the game before. I love the visual effects... the breathtaking view of the sky, and the little Pit in the corner who is about to gore an eye-thingie.

So sweet. Kid Icarus is one of my favorite games of all time. I get so frustrated when I mention it in a conversation and no one has heard of it/remembers it. Yet, they all remember that friggin' plumber.

Ahh I remember Kid Icarus... sort of lol! I just saw him as a character from the old cartoon, Captain Nintendo or something, and I just happened to saw him in there. Anyways, it was a cool game I also heard about and that pic so way reminds me of the good ol classic comic books and video games I used to read and play. Very good job on this! :)

Comme l'a dit aragorn je trouve que tes morceaux d'art sont vraiment magnifique. Mon favori c'est le Lemmings, tres, tres bien fait. Je voulais juste te propose l'idee de creer une image realiste basee sur le jeu pokemon. J'avais auparavant essayer d'imaginer a quoi cela ressemblerai mais puisque je n'y suis pas arriver je m;etais dis que peut etre tu pourrait. Bonne chance et a bientot!

for once it's a bit hard to recognize icarus. perhaps you should place him not too far to the edge of the artwork. everything else is fine, man. :)

Orioto je pense que jamais je ne cesserai de baver devant ton travail :) Je n'ai malheureusement jamais joué à Kid Icarus, mais bon sang t'as de l'or dans les mains! (tout comme un certain personnage de Wind Waker ;))

Je suis un peu déçu car ce n'est pas un jeu auquel j'ai joué, mais ça reste du grand art! J'attends donc avec une impatience que tu ne peux même pas imaginer ta prochaine peinture *_*

Ah, petite remarque, c'est pas un peu trop noir dans les 2 recoins du pilier du 1er plan?

This feels like it came from a book. Using the same kind of classic style Pit is something not many of the gamers these days have seen. You can't say it's plain, because if you have actually seen the games, this is what there is in them. It's basiclly nothing. Great work in making it alive!

That explains a lot then! I could have just go ahead and pointed out that in actual games like this, the background was blank. It was nothing but one color or some lines and maybe a repeated detail. But you get the point! after all, your the one who made it alive! the inspiration you mention, just like you said, it's not in the game but in the mind of the one making it.
