I suddenly had a burst of inspiration to see if i could 'redesign' the Rustbug sprite, and so had a go. Turned out with this. I think i prefer it to the original because it's so much more... CHUNKY. I also brightened it up to make it more cartoony.

If i get some good feedback i might go about changing the style of the Rustbug game to this. It would probably give me some drive to continue making the game.

Thoughts please, thanks in advance.

~ Cannon cleaned up.
~ 22 July 08 - Finally updated to the most recent version. It pretty much just has more curved feet.

I remember this bot from when I started stuff on PJ nearly a year ago now!

Used the walking one as a temporary profile pic ^^

Standing still rustbug, I think the texture is just perfect.

yes, jolly good work, champagne all round! they are both good, i don't really mind... except for these rockin' colours!

this looks much smoother than the other rustbug.

I enjoy your work. This rustbug sprite rules.

I lurv it. I lurv the old one, too, but this one is so much cleaner, more crisp.

I've become quite fond of Rustbug, so you had better keep the sprites coming!

Thankyou everyone very much!

@Rodahue: Hehe, nice idea, but i doubt i'll be able enough to go to all the bother. I think i'm gunna just stick with this one, and see how things go.
@alkaline: Ah yes, i seem to have ignored that for some reason. Thanks for pointing it out, i'll go and fix it tomorow.

So yeah, i think i will use this model. ^___^

if you but this together with the other one it looks like its rustbugs dad

agreed with everyone....I like this one much better aswell, has a much more chunky solid feel to it. Like the brighter colours also.

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/17/2006 13:28
I like this one way mo' betta.  It enlarges the key recognizable features of rustbug and makes them much more.....recognizable, which is great.  And the new colors are excellent.

Rodahue (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/17/2006 12:57
The new colors are great. What if, along the way, you got an upgraded version of Rustbug, which is the slimmed version? Like a faster, sleeker model...

I ditto kaltsu on this, chop, chop!

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 8/17/2006 12:01
yeah, i like this one better for sure!

Monkeyspork (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/17/2006 11:14
It looks nice, i liked the old one aswell. Nice to see your still going with the rust bug idea, that can go a long way ^_^

kaltsu (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/17/2006 11:08
More cartoony = more better. Yeah I prefer this one also. Difference ain't enormous but if it inspires you to continue with the game, you should definitely GO FOR IT.

halfDemon (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/17/2006 10:54
I actually like this one more. Much more cartoony, more fitting for the game if you ask me.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/17/2006 10:50
You're thinking it's looks better as it's more believeable? The size would make it more stable, and I really like it. You kept the same style and it rocks. Like a Kit-Kat, the chunky version is ten times better.
