Indeed   There seem to be plenty of nice-lookin' entries this time round!

I just realized that my entry had 10 colours + transparency, not including transparency, so I had to eliminate a colour .  I'll have to do more mucking around with that...
Still a ways to go:

I know it doesn't even come close to some of these other entries, but...
 
 
Who'll see the crappy joke first?
 
I'd be pretty surprised if someone figures out what the weapon is (not the match).

You're right, I didn't realize how horribly I made the arms, I'll fix that now.
 
EDIT: Hmm, not just the arms, but everything actually. You can't clearly define which leg is in front, and the leg that's bending doesn't even bend at the knee... wow, I'm ashamed.

Just wondering, would a McDonald's milkshake be an acceptable entry?
 
Here's my WIP Dogmeat, and in the future, just call me Doom.
 
I will put transparency later. There's currently 8 colors, after I put the giant McDonald's "M" there will be 9, and after trans, 10
 
 
Edit: It's a soyshake now

The competition is called "Food Warrior"

not "vegetable warrior" And if that doesn't work, I'll make it a bucket of chicken wings.

wow this is a really nice piece, hopefully you'll get it finished in time
 
on another note I'm withdrawing my piece, since a lack of colour counts as a colour (transparency) ah well. I'm not changing ti again, i already had to kill off about 3 or 4 colours, i really cant kill of anymore.
 
kinda working on a new piece however, so possibly have something done....

Don't withdraw it man. You can submit another one without withdrawing, that way incase you don't finish in time, you have a backup.

Seriously guys and gals, you are all being very creative this week.

-ViC-, I like your warrior but think the strawberry is too small giving an incorrect anatomy to him. Not much bigger tho. It may also be that its too low.

vis thats a really ice piece, it looks great, however I'm always for a more dynamic piece, to easily achieve this add a greater bend in him knee and put him foot on that leg on its toes. i would also look at angling the other foot a bit, direct on just looks weird. but its very nice as i said, even if the abs are the size of dinner plates.

Bruce, its a nice piece and i like the idea, but remember it has to be a fighter or a fighting stance etc, that looks too romantic and as such may be rejected.

as for those who may be interested in my new piece Ive restated it and it should be good, Ive got a nice concept for it =D

Hmmm, didn't think about that. I'm sure i can craft them into something though and still have the cherry twins connected at the stem

Ah, I see you beat me to peppers, but I guess there's a substiantial difference between a jalapeño and a pimento, as in:

Pimento Jim!
I think I'm a color over, I'll fix that later...

He's really bowlegged and his chest looks massive, being too tall and having extremely wide shoulders. Take a look at some shoulder bones and the neck area to see how the body works there.  His arms are also as long or longer than his legs. Anatomically he should have a smaller head too, but since he's got a fruithead that doesn't matter much.
 
Also his legs are essentially pillowshaded, as are a lot of places all around. Shade like spheres, cylinders, etc. from a lightsource you're sure of and that's consistently represented.
