Sony MSX restrictions, because I felt like it. 2 colours per 8x1 pixels, out of a palette with 15 visible colours. KILL ALL HUMANS!!!

The second and third robots are my personal favorites.  Always nice to see these character montages from you, interesting designs.

5 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the replies all. Darth: I see what you mean about the last one, the design of that one is not mine tho, but that of a friend and he has a cylindrical head. If i would have made it darker on the sides it would look more hexa- or octagonal unless i would dither a lot, which would not make it much better either. dogmeat: Each to their own. Any specific reason you find it uninteresting. Don't like robot's, restrictions or the straight-on-ness.?

they definately just got better and better, and maximum points for the megazord-ish preview :P

i liked the working order better, the palette arrangement doesn't show any clear progression of style.\

favorites are still the yellow skull face and the blue triangular head

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 3/15/2008 07:52
Very good stuff!  I can't pick a favorite!

The very last one's head feels a bit flat ... but I don't want to say it 'cause he'll kill me!!

Good job!

Oh, I just love the very last one. :D
Wonderful work, the colours are superb.

I love how every single robot has all that character of its own. Very fresh and delicious style (reminds me a bit of the DoDonPachi ships). If you wouldn't have said anything about restrictions in the description, I wouldn't even have noticed that there were any: I think that's good, as it shows that you managed to trick/tweak everything around the restrictions nicely. Though it could also be that the restrictions did have impact on the style which would imply that it would be hard to draw anything else with these restrictions... hm, maybe this could be an interesting challenge to draw some organic characters under the same restrictions. Anyway, I should stop babbleing and instead continue to marvel at this wonderful collection of robots some more.
