Ah yes, I remember a contest going around with people doing this. You don't, however, seem to mention it so maybe it isn't related to it. I think this is really cool because you're using a character who isn't as well known as many other characters. I've seen versions of Street Fighter and Final Fantasy with stuff like this, but not Monkey Island. Granted, I've never played the games. I really like his wavy shadow.
I guess it's supposed to represent how he's on the ocean. This seems to be quite loyal to the feel of the original sprite. It's not HD, just in higher resolution. Or is that what HD means in this sense? Whatever the reasons, this is a good picture.
I have to ask.
Are you excited as I am for the new Monkey Island game? Well, it's not new, it's a remake, but you get the point. Otherwise, great HD style.
I'm pretty stoked but I can't order it cuz I have to much other stuff to do :(
