I know your art is way past the crit stage yet one thing is really bothering me about your massive and beautiful ISO piece… the scale.  The people are too large and the vehicles are too small.  Those people would never be able to fit inside those cars.  Another example of scale issues that F1 care wouldn’t fit into that truck.  I mean I love it but the small things eat away at me.

I do agree with the scale thing, it's doesnt bother me to much tho, afterall there are penguins with hammers in the pic. The thing with these big iso pieces I'd never do one for my own pleasure they are all comissions and I am normally working to some totally unreasonable deadline.

For example this job is from a 14 page Honda magazine, thats 14 pages of big pixel artwork, I think I had about 2 weeks to do it it, funnily enough 99% thru the job Honda decided to scrap the idea and re-design their whole magazine, they still paid me tho.

It doesnt help that I hate drawing cars, and trying to do the nice curvy new civic in pixel was a total nightmare, I think it took me all day to get it right, the ones in this pic are scaled down from the one that took me all day.

Nice stuff (I've seen sexier from you though Gunstar, sorry, tinygiant :P). I don't like plastic iso (eboy, habbo), so I'm not too fond of the iso piece, though I can see the skills in there, good job. Great to have you back, we were talking about you on IRC yesterday or monday...

Very nice. I'm also a fan of your style, I love the little trolls you have on your website.

The iso piece came out really well. I can't tell you how nice it is to see some iso that not only has no black outlines, but also has good colour choices.

One thing that's bugging me about the panda(Is that what the 2nd one is?) is the arms. They look like they're coming from the head, rather than the body. The flipped arm on our left could also use the shadows and midtones switched.

Other than that, I love this stuff.

Welcome back, Gunstar. Back with style, as always.

Even more motivation for me to try to get not rusty again...
