For the weekly challenge.

I tried to imitate Jinn's style. I also used Jinn's palette (slightly modified)

 Merci :)

Totoro + style de Jinn = combo gagnant! En dehors des 2 ~ 3 remarques techniques déjà citées, c'est une très bonne imitation (et également un coup de coeur perso) ^^

 Whoa, thought Jinn did this. Fantastic job dude, it's flawless.

 Verry funny. But so much contrast...

 The tooth need some shading ( the upper part ) and I believe the shadow in his belly is too intense. Good job man =) lets fight for top 3.

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/28/2012 05:08

Thank you for the advice :)

But Jinn also AA into the background on some of his works (for example samus and buzz)

I'll try to improve the fur texture if I can.

looks totally like Jinns work from late 2010/ early 2011. Although your outline doesn't work like Jinn's does. While Jinn keeps a clean outline and fakes AA with dither you are AA'ing your outline into the background. Get Rid of your AA there, keep it "black" and it'll look even more like Jinn's work.

The background green between the belly and the body fur also doesn't really work. I think it'd look better if you get rid of it too.

Pretty nice, good luck with this sprite for the challenge

 It's not kawai anymore !

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/27/2012 18:22

It's like cheating if the one I am trying to imitate makes an edit :p

I also smoothed the outlines here and there. If you want to compare with before dithering+smoothed

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 3/27/2012 18:05

 ya i liekd it beter w/o the ditering. could you provide an edit, jinn?

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/27/2012 17:57

Thanks for the feedback!

I am not good at dithering, but I gave it a try. Not sure it really looks like fur though

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/27/2012 16:04

Great, pal! Also, I'm glad you chose me! ;)

Tho, what about some dithering in the belly to get a fur texture?

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/27/2012 15:05

 Thanks, It's true that the red was a bit agressive. I edited it.

Dastal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 3/27/2012 14:48

Not bad at all! Howewer, I think it be nicer if  you change the color of the leaf,, a blue blue/grey color for exemple, it can be fit way better with the character.


Sry for my bad english. 

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/27/2012 13:51

 Thank you :) This challenge was very interesting and fun to do. I chose Jinn because I think his style is -apart from great-  very unique and recognizable. But I might try to imitate other artists for this challenge if I find the time and the motivation :p

Christoballs (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/27/2012 12:39

This is a pretty good imitation! Some of the lines could be refined, but apart from that I was fooled!

Good job
