For this weeks Fantasy Football challenge:

I haven't got the slightest clue about football, but I know how fanatic the british are about it so I chose England. Well, that and also the fact that Finland failed to qualify this year. Used the red and white scheme of the away kit.

Took only an hour or two in Photoshop CS3.

Thanks for everyone on the feedback.

I was feeling really stupid with all the talk about banding and I had no clue what the hell it even meant.

I read the very enlightening article by Helm on banding:
Now I have an understanding of a sorts about it though parts of it still elude my grasp. I'll just have to read it again and again. At least now I see the problems in this piece and can hopefully avoid them in the future.

Banding is pretty heavy in the character's right thigh, his left forearm, and his right hand / claw with the three prongs. 

I love the way his left toes curl across the edge of the platform, and he's got great posture and anatomy.  Top notch work in such a small space!  Definitely one of my favorites.

I play defense, I would hate to go up against this guy...he could score as many goals as he wanted.

 Very creative :D I thought Resident Evil too!

If they had this guy on the England team I'd watch football more! (Though maybe then it might be more of a gladiator bloodsport than a sport...)


I like the muscle definition even at this teeny size.

Hyvin pelaa yhteen tossa ahhmossa käytetty tyyli ja ton valmiiks annetun jalustan tyyli. Asentokin pelittää oikein mainiosti. Kyllä tässä on ihan äänestämisen arvonen työ :)

Nättiä jälkee kaikenkaikkiaan.

Yeah, the preview was a stupid and unnecessary idea, which I realized soon after submitting. Removed it completely.

What?! You have to use your feet? That's so lame.


SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2010 02:10

I don't know much about football either but I bet he have to wear shoes to start kicking around with those feet.


Nice 5/5 love the stance.

What's with the preview? =/ Aside from being completely unnecessary, it also puts it over the 10k limit and won't show on the front page. Also, you might want to try cutting back on the banding.
