Should have probably said that!

It's going to be Guy Pearce from the Time Machine 2002 film. He'll be inspecting a brain.

I'll give this one a go if I end up having time to finish. (You might not be able to tell at this stage but it's Mr Shrek & Donkey)

Very nice Tony. I look forward to seeing the progress!


Currently 17 colours, and I've yet to do the skin. Will have to play around.

Down to 14 colours - think I'm done with it.

Thanks Quake, yours is looking good too! What's the item he's holding? That could maybe me made a bit clearer.

Made a bit of progress on on mine, think I'll need to make a bit more of an effort to make it recognisably Shrek-like.

Maybe lighten the green as to be more like shrek in the films?

It's meant to be a piece of someone specifically an arm, but I don't have much space to work with, nor any colours to play with. I'll have a play around to make it more recognisable though. Thanks :)
