missed the deadline for the weekly contest by an hour, kinda bummed out about that, but ohz wells, I put some more time into the next morning. Procrastination / deciding to spend the last hour of contest time making a mindnight snack = missed deadline and undynamic pose.

I still had a lot of fun making this dude though, probably the biggest scale pixel I've done so far.

crits on the hair would be sweet, that was where I had the most trouble.

I might do more poses for this guy down the road.

Very nice character! I love the big zipper and the bracelets!

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/20/2009 16:33

lol, wrong challenge Sticky Tape. This was for the multi-purpose portrait challenge the week before.

...News on this character. I've made a bunch of different hairstyles and interchangable facial hair etc for some sort of 'customization' thing.

I'm wondering if anyone thinks I should just update this one with an animation to show the different styles or make that a separate submission all together?

That's a really neat style, his anatomy looks cool.

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/20/2009 04:10

Really like it!  Though, this would not have been accepted for the challenge in the first place, as there are non-tall pixel areas and transparency.  Glad you didn't rush the finish to make the submission just to have it rejected cus this turned out nice.

I totally and completely disagree with almost every comment in here. I think the face is perfect as-is! Combined with the pose and SD-ness of the body, it makes him look like a zomb3h. :D

Great job! I would have voted for it. <3

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/14/2009 16:35

Thanks for the crits, but I'm sticking with the face. Keep in mind that this is a neutral pose and he's not showing any emotion. I wanted him to look like a souless golem worker drone, (the perfectly expendable kind), hence the name, and I didn't want to overload the character with details.

Nothing is set in stone, but I think I'm happy with the design for now.

This is very cool. I would have voted for this. And I like the 'bland' face too, but I think that it has too little shading. The shadows on his body are much darker and bigger than those in his head.

And I think this he should have ears.

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/14/2009 02:51

Totally agree with some below. I understand the comic relief in the face, but still, it just doesn't fit the awesome body.

heyy13 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/14/2009 01:59

I'll just reiterate alot of what has allready been said. The face really gets me. The rest is so detailed/awsome and the head just looks bland by comparison.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/14/2009 00:47

nie character xD 

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/14/2009 00:11

 Not likeing the face.

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/13/2009 21:39

Great character design! The huge zipper on his shorts is the best. I personally like the simple face, and I love the shade of green you chose for the shorts, it works very nicely. One thing I don't like is the dark shade surrounding the eyes, it looks a bit strange, but I can't really explain why.

Good job, anyways. Too bad about the lateness :(

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/13/2009 21:01

thanks! I almost went with a halfsize version of him, becuase i thought at first I wouldn't be comfortable with a pixel this size, but I ended up liking it a lot. I might post the half size in a bit, needs some polishing.

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/13/2009 19:04

wow nice character D: ima loving it!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/13/2009 18:42

A great job. I would have voted for it.

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/13/2009 17:54

the face could have been cool if it has eyebrows nose or more veins in the face

but i still like it nice work

inbntly (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/13/2009 17:52

The Zipper is my favorite! I kind of like how the face is different too, looking forward to seeing more.

JoshFTW (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/13/2009 16:50

In my opinion it's a shame the face is so bland, as the rest of the body has some nice intricate features and the face with it's eyes and bareness doesnt fit in at all. The hair looks good though!
