You're not quite done yet Oren. There's loads to be done and you still have loads of time left.

For example, up the contrast, lose the dither and give it a thick black outline (which will make it more cartoony). Anyways.. this pic is still a wip. Not finished..
Without me, it's just aweso

A cool idea, if anyone had the gumption to try it, would be an animation of someone/thing growing a mustache and then shaving it off, looping.

I, however, am going to try some thing new for me.
Something cute~

Behold, the horrid monstrosity that will haunt my dreams for days to come!

In other words, what little talent I had a few months ago seems to have dissipitated, an I'm looking for a little advice/help.

PS. That IS supposed to, eventually be a girl. But my idea is to screw her up a little.

Looking good! One of my favorites so far. I think that defining the bridge of the nose, particularly at the bottom, as well as playing with the colors some more would really improve this piece. I mean there isnt even much of a restriction and you have two red on red tones? idk if im feeling it much. But still an otherwise excellent piece so far. I kind of messed with the colors a bit so forgive me,lol. Not all of them are that nice but w.e. it might give you an idea or somethingXD It reminds me a bit of warhol's stuff hence the color wallXD

Thanks SHANN0N! Have not messed with the nose yet and these colors are still temporary, but I think I'm just about done with the AA:



EDIT: Actually, I may add another AA shade for the black/yellow transition. sigh.

I'm not doing a more complicated bg because I'm afraid it would ruin the readability of the piece. Do you think that's good enough ?

1. Remove dithering.
2. Hue shifting.
3. Give him a background.

X. Experiment!

Dithering *from experience* gives an unneeded rough texture. With dithering, the beard + 'stache look more like octopus tentacles.

Yes that is a robot character.
Yes it has no forearms or hands yet.

Now with basic colours!



And yet still no moustache...hmmmm.

Colours are likely to change, be fixed up, and be injected with AA before submission. Also a background will likely to be implemented :)

Oh, and of course, a moustache!
