What happens when Luigi plays dodgeball. It hurts.

So I've found this one method called "HD Index painting", and I decided to try it out (as well as optimize and clean up the final pic a bit to have it fit the challenge as much as possible). Too bad hands don't look very good here :/ I wasn't sure how to fix that so I left them like that, I don't think they're much of a problem anyway (for now). All I need to do is practice actual drawings to get the hang of it.

And yeah, I'm aware that there are (quite possibly) near-duplicate colors. Right now I can't remove them though, and even if I don't manage to do it before the deadline (which is unlikely unless I forget or something), I'm still within the 25 color limit AFAIK.

Any comments or concerns? Feedback is always welcome.

Fact: Luigi was originally going to be punched instead of being hit by a ball. However, drawing a fist had proved to be kind of leaning towards realistic (which I cannot do because I've already developed a cartoony style) and kind of complex, so therefore I had to scrap the punch idea and replace it with a simple ball.

Thanks, that helps.

Man, I should've known better    I thought HD Index painting was fine because I don't remember seeing anywhere it was cheating. Yet another "entry" that turns out to not be a valid entry that I have apparently wasted/spent time on...

Well... you made it using "HD Index painting" (in other words 'cheating')

However, for the hands you could try to use some reference [LINK]...

...and some more elbow grease (more pixel-by-pixel stuff and less computer-guided-lines)
