Thanks, guys! (it's the first time I make a gun that looks like one - yay)
Yeah, I got carried away with the glitches and should've kept them more subtle. I added them in a rush, blinded by enthusiasm. Glitchmaking is fun.
I've got two more characters like this and I feel like I must glitcherize them too... But I'll use caution if I do )
My favorite use of glitch effects are when it's combined with screen shake or some kind of artillery going off in the background.
I'm not a fan of grotesque profiles, but he's got a beautiful gun. lolz
I love the glitches, actually. Amazing how you did them with just 4 colors.
Personally, I think the glitch effect is a bit too distracting. However, the face and the gun are outstandingly well pixelled.
