Can someone tl;dr who Ned Kelly is for everyone that's not Australian and doesn't want to read a 17306 word wikipedia article that according to wikipedia's standards is very likely to be incorrect anyways?

I sometimes forget that American-type people have never heard of him :o

There is a simple English version of the article, which is still fairly long.

tl;dr: He's a very naughty boy.

A good place to start looking for inspiration is by searching for "Sidney Nolan Ned Kelly"

I foresee this NOT being a very popular challenge. Just because it's a relatively obscure character outside of Australia.

I agree, this challenge is sure not for everyone. I`ve never heard of this man. In addition, you have to make a pixel based on someone`s life; that`s challenging.. but weird Oo
Also, claiming one person as a symbol of a whole country, isn`t it ridiculous?

What are you talking about, Ned Kelly is visually badass. Check out his mug and armor:

Whether you want to practice portraits or metal texture, or even design skills if you choose to redesign the character of the man, there's tons of good stuff there.


Edit: Also, if you don't know who Ned Kelly is, you haven't been watching enough Discovery Channel/Nat Geo!

With all i know about this crazy avenger (!) i imagine him like a australian buddy of Guy Fawks. Why isn't he so popular?

I'll tell you one thing, I didn't know of him before all this but after catching a glimpse of that armour, hehe, I sure as hell do now. Things like this are right up my ally!

Anyhow, after an eager read up on him I quickly sketched this out

Still far from done but it's a start. Thinking of turning it into a game mockup. That's allowed right?

yeah, I've never heard of the guy, but just looking at these glimpses of him I'm already interested.

Rolled my eyes initially, but upon reading about him I feel more people ought to know about Ned Kelly outside the land of milk, honey and murderous wildlife.

Suppose I should get to brainstorming.

I remember a episode of Simpson, where Homer used a very similar armor...
He really look dangerous.

WIP

My original idea was to have stuff hanging out the hole, but the thing hanging out in the version on the right obscures the hole too much, so I made a version with a package. I'm not sure which version I like more.

I like the idea a lot! I also like the thing sticking out of the slit- but I think you would be able to pull it off better, without making it look so cluttered, if you scale the whole thing up a bit. It's too small imo.

Nice update, Drazile. The dents are a nice addition.

Update:


Thinking about lowering the gun to a relaxed position. Metal is still pretty confusing.
