legs are supercool but as most people mentioned the normal rustbug looks awsome as it is. This one could be really cool for like if it was a game to be as a graphic on the website or on nthe start screen. Good stuff tho.

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/31/2010 09:16

 Nah. The older one was better.

I love the style u used on this rustbug. It's so funky :D

Demon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/15/2007 15:40
Good old Rustbug! XD  Like always, stunning work buddy. :)

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/1/2007 02:06
Doesn't read "rust" just like the last one.

I like how you did the legs, so shinyyyy.

But barrel>orb, imho.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 2/13/2007 15:30
i like the new colors a ton, but i miss the old phallic weapon, the shiney little ball doesnt quite do it for me

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 / 7, because it's just so appealing

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 2/10/2007 02:04
Oi, the old rustbug got tuned up :D
pimp my rustbug, or whatever ;)

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/5/2007 23:16
I have to agree with the flatness, but in general there is something about this that just lacks the "rustbug" spirit, to me, anyways.

He just doesn't feel rusty.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 2/5/2007 16:20
I realy like the design, so clean and perfect, just wonderfull!  great pallete too!

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 2/5/2007 16:11
I love the high saturation, makes me feel like this! The only thing I don't like is the highlight near the left contour of the shell which I think makes it look a bit flat. It's good to see more stuff from you :)

Radek (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/4/2007 13:17
realy nice shiny colors ...i LOVE orange robots =) ... and very good anti-aliasing ;)

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/4/2007 08:37
Quite nice forms and colors. It seems to be an project you are working on quite hard and long.

Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/4/2007 06:53
I totally and absolutely adore it :>

Monkeyspork (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/4/2007 04:34
bucket of awesomeness

kwigbo (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/3/2007 22:53
I have to say the other colors looked more 'rusty'. I do like the new colors and design but i think the other colors fit better. But thats just me, I was never too good with color.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/3/2007 18:31

@alk: The shape just grew from the original sketch i guess, i'm pretty sure this isn't what it'll look like the next time i sprite it, so i shouldn't worry too much. :)
@mod: I've thought alot about the lack of barrel, and how it seems naked without.. but hopefully i'll be able to rustle something up that'll please everyone. Also, about the shinyness, i totally agree, halfway in the WIP i just went mad with it, and didn't bother changing it. The whole turtle thing is true aswel, i originally only had rustbug as a quick 'production' name, and planned on changing it, but it just stuck i guess.
@mikeful: Yeah, the relation to the Tachikoma is kinda annoying, but owels.
@khorin: Size is debateable atm, anywhere from a dog to a house. Most probably inbetween.

So yeah, just to sum up, the only real 'V3' part of it is the colours and the orb. The shape and stuff was just stylistic choice for this piece.
I write too much. THANKYOU FOR THE COMMENTS! x

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 2/3/2007 16:26
Its legs look like fingers to me for some reason. Anyway, I love the colors! So how big is it?

mikeful (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/3/2007 16:07
Looks bit like Tachikoma from Ghost in the Shell. Which is <3

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/3/2007 15:51
love these newer brighter colors. Its a bug and by lar so sweetness all aroung.


Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/3/2007 15:37

I don't like the lack of barrel. It looks almost as if the bug ot decapitated without a gun barrel. The orb might be more appealing with fewer reflections so it's more recognizable as something shiny; right now it looks too dirty and busy to generate a laser.

I love the legs here and how you embraced saturation in your palette, but looking at its design again it seems to be more of a rustturtle than rustbug now. Maybe it'll look better and more insectoid animated in the actual sprite, I don't know.

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/3/2007 14:36
to be honest, i find the shape too organic. but of course it is a rust BUG. i just find the shape a little.....odd, and not pleasing. the coloring is pretty good though.

Very snazzy indeed. Again, the palette is super, and I like your choice for a black outline on the orange. Fantastic.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/3/2007 10:16
very cool!  cant wait to see what your mind has vomited out for rustbug :D

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/3/2007 10:04

Thanks guys. Makes me feel nice. ^-^
Barrel's still gunna be there, but it won't be the default thing, the black orb shizz replaces it. I have lots of ideas..

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 2/3/2007 09:33
I love your work Larwick.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/3/2007 09:14
son of a bitch...  YOU SON OF A BITCH!  tease!!!  seriously, that is sweet.  the colors and composition are just perfect.  i absolutely love the new style. 

however, i will be disapointed if there is no barrel

but yes...  sexiness meter reads a 9.9/10

i love you :D
