okay, as i was working on Stout, I finally realized what was wrong with my green guy i started a waaAAAaay long time ago.  I'm sure i'll get over this loin-cloth phase of mine that i'm going through....oh well.  I think it's finished.  Could be a bit more saturated maybe.

turns out that the original design was way off-balanced and weighted the picture heavily on one side.  It wasn't pleasing to the eye.  Once i flipped it horrizontally, it was easy to tell.  With the new posture, it creates a nice 's' curve that centralizes the weight and balance - as opposed to my old one with was just a straight line. Examples of what i mean below.

Also wanted to mention i was trying to match the 'street fighter 3' style

A treat for the eyes. C: He's so gruff and stumpy. <3 Keep at it!

How cool! Someone from Palace mentioned they knew someone on here named Indigo but I had yet to see any of your work. This is very cool :] I really like the hair and the expression. And I envy the feet. Darn you people who can make toes look right!

And there's nothing wrong with a healthy loincloth phase...

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/11/2006 14:38
This is absolutey great. It almost makes me jealous of your work Just two minor things: His pigtail doesn't seem exactly symmetrical (it tips a bit to the left (viewed from the front)), and the shading from the draping on the loincloth is a bit to dark (or, to put it this way: the contrast feels a bit stronger here then on the green bodypart, which has less darkening)

Irate Corpse (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/11/2006 11:04
That's awesome. The colour, the form, the look on his face... awesome. I also really like his toes!

mikl3 (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/11/2006 10:15

Good stuff, colors are great

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/11/2006 04:36

how you divided the muscles of the deltoids and pecs reminds me of adam tierney's stuff.


chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/11/2006 02:29
I think it rocks! I love the simple shading style! and I love the pose! He looks very powerful!
