Ah, my first critique!

Okay, here it goes.

I think this image not only manages to capture the spirit of the original game, but it transcends it. It's like you've been given a crayon drawing on a paper towel and made the Mona Lisa out of it.

Another critique of the image mentioned how the characters sort of fade into the background, but I disagree. Thanks to the movement of Pit and the enemy, my eyes instantly shot to them, fascinated by all that is happening in the upper-right-hand side of the image. It helps that the enemy is dark and red, and really sticks out amongst the light blues and whites floating around the piece.

The only technical bit of critique I can put on the image is the Earth's horizon behind the foreground. The way that the clouds are hovering above the ground almost seems a little lop-sided. It's such a large detail that it's hard to ignore, and it just doesn't look totally right to me.

Anyway, aside from that, I think you've done an outstanding job and should be proud of your fine work on this! Add Kid Icarus to the list of games that you have made super-awesome, and completely you!

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...

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 <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";-)" title=";-) (Wink)" /> 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!

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.
