Here's my Skullomania sprite for Pixel Dailies, I fell off the wagon for a few days there but I'm tryin' to get back into the swing of working on these every day. Skullomania is from the Streetfighter EX series and is mostly known for being a whacky ex-car salesman who headbutts the shit out of anything that gets in his way. You could say he's just a guy who is a hero for fun but his power levels are nowhere near those of the mighty Saitama. I've always been a big fan of his character design, the subtle weirdness of the curve below his ribcage and the asymmetrical mask go a long way towards breaking up the monotony of a generic skeleton pattern. It's a shame he hasn't been in more SF games outside of that short-lived set of EX games but it could be a licensing issue or something, I really didn't care to look into it that deeply. The pose I've used here is borrowed from a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure figure of the character Star Platinum, though in all honesty I don't think I've quite done it justice - those figures are fucking rad, they have like a million points of articulation and Araki has a much better grasp on lighting and anatomy than I do, but hey, I tried and I'm not totally unhappy with the result considering I randomly lost 6 hours of the day I had planned on using to polish the piece. I may revisit it in the future to try and capture more kinetic energy in the pose and possibly adjust some of my color choices but I don't think I'll be coming back to it any time particularly soon as I am probably just going to bite off more than I should chew with the next daily anyway ;)
