Echidna Pyramid No. 2 by ~skylights1 - Mindblowingly awesome are the first two words that come to mind about this piece of PixelArt....Click on it, have a look and then go and download the videos he made showing part of this being created! Done on msPaint folks, using the pencil tool! ( Featured by ShoneGold )

JESUS...!!! When I saw the preview I thought it'd be small! DAMN, was I wrong.

You've got to be insanely focused to make this! I'd give up on a project like this in, like, two minutes! :noes:

This is just... wow... There are no words for this. This has GOT to be the "Greatest Sprite"! :clap:

Man, the thumbnail doesn't do any justice for this piece. It didn't look at all impressive, but when I viewed the full size I nearly swore out loud because it's beyond amazing. The detail is incredible, and on such a huge piece... It's incredible. Well deserved DD.

It's pretty good. It's especially big. Of course alot of copy and pasting though, can't blame you :P
I really think this piece suffers from the colours though. they're quite boring imo. And the statues are quite messy. I'd love to see it a bit cleaner.
