The feet SUCK, I know.
But this took forever...
Way too long.

the spine is a bit off centre, but the dithering is cool.  I especially love the skulls in the pants.

But despite the awesomeness, now I'm sad cause you said Chernobyl  :(

i love the hues and shading of the pants. I feel there's a lack of contrast on the shoes. Also the white gets lost in the lightest colour. 
Regardless of the anatomy/pose problems i like this a lot.

The face looks kind of cartoonish and throws off the effect of the rest of the picture, making it look kind of comical. I think reworking the eye and mouth (to more closely resemble the sketch.) will fix this though. (actually you could just remove the eye completely, that would look suitably freaky)

Its very solid pixelwise.

This is very competently pixelled, and I enjoy your color choices so much. But! Anatomy, man! You're doing a disservice to you by drawing tube arms on such otherwise nicely rendered stuff. I can do a photoshop edit (no pixelart edit on this, would take too long unless I just block out shapes), if you'd like either, talk.

Makes me think of Cthulhu (did I spell that correctly?) Granted I haven't read much (any) of the Cthulhu mythos, so no one dissect that comment too much. Anyway, perhaps you could add some contrast to his innards by adding some more darkness in there, especially along the "back wall" of his insides. I'm curious what it would look like if you almost blacked it out and just caught the detail with highlights (not curious enough to do an edit, though.) Its a dark, mysterious, grotesque piece; I love it!
