Here's a WIP:

Rasputin opens the gate at the beginning of HellBoy.

Please tell me what you think, shall I continue working on this one or start a new concept?

Noburo, add the words "Magikarp wins!" and I would call that magic XD

Mrmo, as always, your's is simply fabulous, even as a WIP.

Meatermen, it seems you've really overdone the dithering and it gives an unwanted texture to the cloak especially.

...What is that even meant to be, MIERDINSKY? o.o Either way it looks okay.

I might try and enter this contest if I can get a good enough idea. Here's hoping.

This is my WIP so far (about 2 hours). I need a lot of help, so please share all the wisdom you have! I'm sort of embarrassed to even post this ...but I figured I'd give it a shot.

My plan is to have some mystical power forming in his hand. I also am dreadfully afraid of shading that hand . Anyways, I hugely appreciate any help with this piece.



I used this as a reference

Could someone please give me some feedback on this dithering? It's my first attempt at using it to such an extent. With so few colors in the palette, I really want to use this challenge to practice dithering.

These are my two test to choose which is the best.

I know, I should move the texture of the sorcerer, but I liked the effect of the explosion of magic.

Been a while since I've pixeled anything. No idea why this is what came to mind, but hopefully someone gets it.

Reference here.

Any comment/critique is gladly welcomed! Any idea what I can put in the background would be great, too. ;)

Aside from just a cool elaborate magic scene I was also thinking of doing a magical girl transformation gif with a disturbing twist.

The spell is WIP but the mage is basically finished. I might add some minor adjustments though. I hope I finish this one in time to start another!

a3um : yours is looking fantastic, even though it's still rough. I hope you finish it!

It's perfect, but you have to reduce the green light.

The earlobe looks a little swollen. And it seems like there's some jaggies, but that may be because it's a WIP. You're off to a great start! I'm looking forward to the animation, so you better do it

Yeah, I was trying to go for a big lobe like some buddha statues have, but I don't think I did it right. And yes, there's some jaggies, but no, it's not because it's a WIP. It's just because I suck :P
I'll try and fix them, but I've never been too good at it.
Thanks for the feedback and I'll definitely give the animation a shot, but whether or not I finish it in time is a whole other matter.

@Tarius: O ma gah! I don't wish you were a bird, because how would you be pixelling then?
You're being too modest. Your style works (and you have a style, that's still an improvement over me) and your pics always got more favs than mine do. Why would you want to spoil that?

@Reo: good job on the face. Fix the arms and hands and you're good to go
