If I could replace all Marathon sprites with art like that, I'd never look at the originals again.

Hey, these are neat! You've got your own artistic style going, which reminds me a bit of some of the other more cartoony takes we've seen here over the years.

Technical Difficulties made me laugh [MLaugh].

The composition of Security Officer 2 is excellent.

The Enforcer is interesting, because it changes how I think of Enforcers. I'd always seen them as 'merely' having many different-sized eyes. Your illustration highlights the difference between one main eye and other secondary eyes, making him more like a cyclops.

I don't like how the rocket launcher looks slightly dented where the two segments meet - I think the exaggerated curves are best left to the characters and other organic elements.

These are awesome! Would love to see a "family photo" type group shot of all the different character types.

Hmmm...what would an entire scenario done in a "cartoony, kid-friendly" type style look like? That would be a trip.

Adorable! It's like if Marathon had a spin-off series for kids.

Love the last 3 you just posted! (20 days ago, whatever..)
The enforcer really makes me think of the alien from ALIEN. I liked that movie...
Frog blast the vent core!

Wow, these are all really nice! I love your style, and the cartoon with the F'lickta made me grin. Good work!

[MUp] If you can write as well, you should be doing a Marathon webcomic.

I apparently missed this thread when it was new, but yeah, these are good and fun and I'd love to see a Marathon comic made in this style.
