Pixel Art Challenge: Small Bigfoot

Edit2: Shrunk the feet a bit.

Edit 1: Changed the legs and "implied perspective".

50 x 46 pixels, 16 colors (Iso-ology palette) + transp.

Well, I hade an idea about a nosy Bigfoot finding a camera or investigating a snowmobile...dunno how well it worked out. Testing the Iso-ology palette on something non iso. If the whacky perspective & pose is to much of a stretch for a "full body sprite" I'll remove it, no sweat. Wish there was more room to improve the lame least he's cute! :D

Looks like his finger has a hole/indention in the tip.

Im glad you placed!

This was one of my favorites for this comp.

I really don't understand why 2nd place wasn't yours. It's really very interesting. 

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 10/17/2010 01:59

man, that palette works really well- I think this will be one of my votes!

Becaus of the size and colouring this for some reason makes me think of those sheets of RPG items people frequently post. "Accusational Bigfoot" would be a sweet itme for an RPG lol.

 Update looks great, good job!

Neocrone (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/15/2010 15:24

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/14/2010 23:16

Great colours, Like all your pieces.

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 10/14/2010 23:07

 Took me a while to realize it was pointing xD

Dweller (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/14/2010 20:45

That finger!!!

2-D (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/14/2010 18:09

It has my vote :]

SpazzerEXE (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/14/2010 17:07

Wow, the feet look a lot better now! They were it's only weakness before imo and even then it was still pretty awesome. Great work. :D

meagz (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/14/2010 16:57

 loving it :)

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/14/2010 14:56

 is that a gun hes pointing with? if so i would make the inside of the barrel completely black...

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/14/2010 11:56

@skam: Yeah, your edit is more realistic. I wanted quite big feet (duh! ;) )... but perhaps I could shrink them another pixel or two for perspective improvement.

[Edit: Done!]

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/14/2010 11:04

Hm, I like the new take on this, but I think the legs are a bit too big now. They make the perspective seem a bit unclear - Edit.

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 10/14/2010 09:46

LOL @ have him poke us.  I recongized the pallet immediately.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/14/2010 06:39

@all: Yeah, I knew it was a very daring and odd "configuration"... I was hoping to be able to come back and perhaps improve things if I had time. And yes meagz; it did occure to me too that we could just as well look down on him - maybe we could sit scared in a tree and have him poke us? I'll give it a try.

 He looks like he's sitting even after reading the description. Have you experimented with kneeling?

Love the colors. :D

meagz (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/14/2010 01:46

seconding reo. why dont you ditch the feet and legs and make him as though he's viewed from a top down kinda angle? like he's reaching up to a very tall camera?

that is an awesome palette, by the way.

Feet&Legs are pretty sucky, rest is pretty great!

The expression on his face is brilliant (:
