This was actually more of a challenge than it looked.  The only things I knew about this funky little dude were that 1.) he's weird and 2.) he rides around on a jellybean... sometimes... I think.  The jellybean was actually pretty simple to come up with but, for some reason, coming up with an interesting way to represent his head was pretty frustrating.  I decided to animate him at the last second so it's a little spacey with the frames.  8 frames, but they were compiled pretty quickly.  I didn't take advantage of the 16 color limit (I actually thought it was 8 when I started ).  I also designed it to look better with the background color in the detail pic because I thought I was running out of colors so I decided the lightest of the palette colors would fit best... and I think it just looks better that way.  Which is nice.  x)  I went back and put several different colors on the background just to test it out and, though they didn't look bad, it just looks better this way and I can keep my low color count.  I just Loooove to complicate things.  But, at last, here he is in all his jellybouncing glory.  Enjoy... and don't eat the green ones!  


The detail file sucked.  Lol!  So you get the preview as the actual submission.  Also, the thumb, due to the transparency, does have 8 colors.  Which is fine, I guess.  I hope it shows up okay for everybody.

Thanks!  I see what you're talking about.  I think I'm just using such a broad value system.  Real bright and saturated highlights to real dark shadows.  I gotta reign that in, I suppose... or maybe I'll let it go wild!  We'll have to see...
