An Octoroc from the Legend of Zelda series, redrawn in the Commodore 64 palette with wide pixels. I did not follow any real C64 restrictions. The good people at Pixelation helped quite a bit. 

The character is not my own creation. I used this as a reference.

welcome to pixeljoint.

i'm a sucker for an art style like this. i would have never guessed this was your first peice here on pixeljoint. its really good. at this point my only wish is to see a full scene in this kind of style. (hopes for a game mockup)

either way i can't wait to see more like this.

 It originally had a black background, but I changed it to transparent and I tried to to AA it to the default grey background. Here's the version with the black background.

I think a black background is almost warrented for this since it's AA'd towards it.

Also Great work, i would like to see more as well.

Thanks so much iLKke and Jabber! I'm honored that such respectable artists as yourselves have given positive feedback. I will try making it into a whole scene, but I work slowly, so I might never finish it haha.

Nice. Would love to see a whole scene like this.

 Cool. I like how it looks kind of 3D; great depth, and a very impressive use of C64 colors, as well.
