The grass works pretty well; if it were a few shades darker I'd say it was long moss as it comes off the sides;

with some vertical elements - like Adrian says above - it'll really look nice and grassy.

The tree - there's no trunk, but I bet you could make one for this and round off the top a bit; the colors are original.  Without some scale cues it's really bushy. 

neat stuff!

LoTekk that's nice - perhpas there could be a bit more contrast between the pants & shoes to help define those forms, but you've done a great job of capturing the important bits;  I can't remember:  is her hip supposed to be canted or was her pants/beltline slightly off level?  there's something that's supposed to be an oblique line around her waist, but it looks now like it may just be lack of pose...

Jakten - I think there's a lot of people who frequent both (tho I mostly lurk everywhere).

Nice Howard, really nice.  I like the recoil-effect on the weapon;  the orange thing below screams laser-targeting system to me ;)  Perhaps if you offset the barrel's recoil more - so it was bang / BANG - a few more frames between the two barrels firing / recoiling...

The fur is nice - I think that will stand out a lot better against your BG elements.  I think there should be some more hip rotation resulting in some up/down motion on the hips as he plants and pushes off w/ his feet - something to consider.  Perhaps some more specular highlighting  - it's a tad dark in your processing build linked above; hair at this scale is hard to duplicate though - and should be anistropic if shiny.....  hrm. 

What AA & rendering engine are you using for these?  Scanline?  I gotta say, the antennae thingies aren't my cup of tea, but they help convey the motion - I'm curious to see if they'll get lost with the cannon up on his shoulder or what.

WOW!  All this hate for the great ape! 

Size, animation, orientation - these are all very preliminary things and can be easily tweaked.  ROBOKONG as a player-character - I think it's pretty unique and could be fun to be this giant robo ape terrorizing a town full of smallish sprites (who have no hope of stopping, nay even slowing, giant robot simian terror!). 

I don't mind the concept, I'm sure it'll turn out fantastic as everything else here as you polish it up.

full of awesome as usual.  I'd love to see details on your workflow from max (ie, what anti-aliasing settings, bg color, alpha matte / processing if any, sprite-software steps, etc.,) to these apng's - extremely impressive.  I've been using 3dsmax since, well, since it was 3ds on dos ;) and this stuff just slays me with awesomesauce.  HUZZAH.

On the gorilla:  Perhaps more movement in the hips & back - it looks too solid / inflexible.
