I really do enjoy this peice. The transition of the dithering is very smooth.

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/25/2007 12:44
I really love this. You have a very clean style and the fact it's all in three colours is  breathtaking.
Great job and I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

His hair is so cool! I envy him and his brain hair!

jangheejoon (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/21/2007 00:57
This is an excellent piece of work.  I think the dithering job's absolutely outstanding.  Great job, man.

*Christopher: If you compare the WIP with the reference you will see that this was not traced.

Comparing the amount of work I had put on this piece I think this is one of the fastest works I have ever done.

And thanks everybody for the comments.

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/19/2007 14:50
I really like this, the shading is beautifullll.
Did you trace or do it from scratch with only the reference.

maxxim (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/19/2007 11:59
wow very nice

Jonathan (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/19/2007 11:27

Deff great

His hair is really good man...

Maxamor (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/19/2007 09:19
This is really great. Like was already stated, the contrast between the hair and the face's shading is really great.

BruceJuice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/19/2007 07:01
That shading is excelent. It really gives it that appreance of depth. Good job.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 3/19/2007 05:49
Really good work for 3 colours... Especially the curly hair and the folds on the cloth.

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/19/2007 03:26
Is it red or brown? Oh well, you gor my wote anyway...

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/19/2007 01:15
that looks great. I like how the face is dithered and the hair isn't. It just makes it better doing that. :)

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/19/2007 00:43
