Player 2 characters are often a wackier sibbling of the main hero. I'm talking about characters like Luigi, Knuckles, Diddy kong.

My own favorite character is Spaz, it was so obvious to me that he was much more fun than Jazz Jackrabbit and as I was the older sibling at home I always could make sure that I got to pick him first.

This week 's challenge is to draw a player 2 character. But if your favorite game doesn't have one, you're welcome to design a player 2 character that would be suitable for that game! Please do let us know which game it is based on, of course.

Canvas Size - Max 64x64.
Colours - Max 16 .
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I submitted this to the gallery in 2012 Bob.
 
Now finally, 9 years later, it stars in the game I made: Drop Boy
 
I hope you all go play it, and do let me know what your high scores are!
