psst! keep that secret! :p

no no, i did'nt think about metroids during the time i drew this oô... but it has something of them oô... not on purpose. i thought more of a special type of jellyfish called the portuguese galera ( don't know the correct english term oo )
TheKiller7's avatar
Yeah, I see the jellyfish stuff on this, after all, Metroids are just cute jellyfishes, nothing more. It does not mean it's "unoriginal" or something, everything looks like something, except maybe, some of the craziest entries around here.

when you design things for games ans so on, its better to relie on existing stuff, than dooing extremly creazy stuff, the eye of the fewer needs something he knows to fully understand it. there are genres where you can go crazy with the design, especially in the horror genre, where it is better t oplay with unknown things. but even those are loosely based on existign stuff, thats how the human mind works ^^.

and no, i'm not offended,i just had a similar discussion lately where i indeed where attackt, so sorry if i seemed angry :)

Don't at all, at any moment I even though that dude, you've been attacked on your work page?, because the guy must be an asshole, Deviant is mostly a place of feedback and (not very often) constructive criticism, definetely not a place for trolls.
