Fantastic art!
But the tone is all over the place. Senseless violence is fun when justified. Here we had two bad guys, being uncomfortable, killing innocents. No danger. No consequences. No meaning. And what's really important - no punishment. The thing with antiheroes is that we should see them suffer or they should have some likable traits. Instead we got Happy Tree Friends, Always Sunny or our own original Madness series, but without any interest in the characters, and the characters serve no overall purpose. The whole story felt like a joke that went on for so long that it forgot its punchline.

Plus when we've established that they're assholes, we can predict all the individual punchlines, soooo all the jokes fall flat now. That's bad.

A meets B. They fight. A wins. - that's a story, but it's a bad story. Gimme reasons, make me care, I'm not 15 anymore, I'm getting old here.

This was really good, but I kind of felt that the 2 warriors were a bit too sadistic honestly. That Goblin slave got murdered twice, and came across as heartless. Maybe that's what you were going for, and if so, it was conveyed well. Not quite my cup of tea, but still enjoyable though, none the less.

As a pixel artist myself, this is a wonderful peice and I’m glad to see it getting recognition! I honestly believe that limitations breed creativity, and being forced to work with so few pixels made your character designs SUPER memorable and let you accomplish a ton of cool action scenes. Great work!
