 I love those 3-d models that have pixel like texturing so I tried to emulate that in a pure pixel way.

pros: great colors, grnerally fluid anim, funny char, butt chin,

cons: light scource moves as head turns, the nose and chin don't noticeably protrude while in platform view mking the piece more flat.

score 4/5

Oh I LOVE it. :D

There's only one thing I could image that would make it look even better - if the head turns around the light source normally stays at its place so the reflections move. At the moment they're pretty much stuck to the fronthead. 

But on the other hand that would take away a lot from its simplicity ... anyway, well done!

Nice attempt.

Is it just me or is his chin detaching when the face rotates toward the edge?

Awesome colors and animation, nice style too

So cool!

You set frametimes at 0: most browsers will display that as 0.1" which is a bit slow. I'd recommend 0.05" (and in any case no faster than 0.03").

You could easily make a stereo 3D version!

The color choice is superb, I adore this.

Nice job on getting the round point throught but the speeding up and slowing down looks extremely weird.  Love his expression :D
