My submission for the Gorillaz Contest.  I dithered this thing to pieces, I know.  Rest assured that I'm done pixeling clouds for awhile!  

The hands are also a little strange, but this is what you get for less than a week's work of pixel.  I intended this to be an animation, but I just didn't have enough time.  The cross was going to swing on the gun, his hair would move in the breeze, and ashes were gonna fall from the cigar.  In honor of the first track off the new album, I wanted to have a robot in front be shot clean through and then fall to reveal Murdoc standing there, but it proved too ambitious.  Still, I hope y'all enjoy it!

The reference photo comes from a Clint Eastwood as Josey Wales Poster that can be found at

I know, that's why I mentioned it in the description. I'm not very good at using dithering to my advantage yet.  With such a rush order submission I guess I didn't think about it, I just went with it.  I'm hoping these weeklys will give me more input like yours so that I can progress and develop my own style without becoming just oekaki (which I'm actually good at go figure ).  Thanks for the input.  It will definitely help me in future pieces.

The dithering hurts the piece's dimensionality.

Forgot this challenge could be about singular characters, and I briefly wondered if someone had gone for Murdoc is God!
