I think i'm calling this done.  I may tweak a few things if It needs it.  It was a pretty fun one to work on.  :)

Taki (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/19/2010 15:27

your shading is too great to be real ;__;

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/10/2010 18:43

I like the shading!  It reminds me a little bit of street fighter

FrostedMayhem (Level 4 Murderer) @ 8/27/2009 13:46

Soloque (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/13/2008 13:45
Great style and nice color use too!
Right leg's position doesn't feel very natural, but im not very good at anatomy though.
Great job :D

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/13/2008 01:12
here is the WIP thread:

kotchomet (Level 1 Private) @ 10/12/2008 16:41
i'd like to see the WIP for this.

Baz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/17/2008 17:58
Damn, this is awsome!!

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/11/2008 21:22
the adductors are never covered by the quads, especially with legs akimbo - that's an anatomical falsity and that's exactly my point about them.  And the fact that you can name them had nothing to do with whether you've made them the right shapes :).

If you think these are just exaggerating the existing shapes, i suggest studying legs intensely for a while.  There's nothing wrong with drawing them differently, but thinking that these are done accurately (or accurately exaggerated, if that makes sense) suggests flawed knowledge, and a mistake is different than a decision.

This is more hardcore than pixeljoint is made for, if you want to talk about legs more you could IM me or something.  It's hard to discuss with email-tag anyway :).

KwIjL (Level 5 Captain) @ 9/11/2008 10:54
Wow, can I do a request and you make me one of these :O

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/9/2008 11:13
I'll agree that the elbow area was for the most part invented for this piece, though the thigh area is very accurate (just exagerrated).  I can name every muscle thats defined in the thigh area of this image.  I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're getting at with the adductors, because these are mostly covered by the quads in a frontal vew such as this - leaving only slight hints on the inside of the quad (which I do have a little bit of on the frontmost leg)

maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying?

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/9/2008 06:23
Lovely palette and technique, sway, and overall handling :) :).

i suppose in such an exaggerated piece, it may be irrelevant to note anatomical strangeness, but the elbows and thighs are totally invented in a way that actually takes away from the charm of the exaggeration and replaces it with pure distortion.

thighs mostly - adductors group is important, as is making sure that the main structural muscles move from large outside near the butt and large inside near the knee - otherwise you end up with sausages :)

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 9/8/2008 14:59

An etalon in techniques.

finite (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/8/2008 05:50
The design and shading on this in incredible, it's so rich and strong. Makes me want to add it to my favourites twice. It's awesome to see new art from you again. :D

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/6/2008 00:29
Wow really cool character!

Dr.naCo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2008 21:48
I  love it :), 5+fav

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/5/2008 10:16
I love the fact that he looks just like Hitler,also I love the shirt!

taeha (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2008 07:59
Beautiful, amazing shading and unlike a few other people I like the style of the drawing itself, aside from the pixel rendering/coloring. Splendid work!

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2008 07:03
Has a real Street Fighter feel to it. Love the details and colour choice. Good job.

Pixel_Devil (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/5/2008 03:34
I like it!

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/4/2008 20:30

kingpyfiou (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/4/2008 18:53

Bacteriophage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 9/4/2008 17:31
I also noticed this. It kinda looks like a horse leg. And yeah, Hitler, etc. This rocks.

Ghostclown (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/4/2008 16:40
I love this. The colors are so sexy!

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/4/2008 16:09
Thanks so much guys for the kind comments.  I'll be making a slight update later tonight.  :)

Jal:  There's plenty of AA in there, mang :P

chanfan:  yes, hitler took up skateboarding after a freak nuclear accident which caused his muscular overgrowth.

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 9/4/2008 13:52
This looks awesome. I like that he's holding a skateboard.

Gizmonicgamer (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/4/2008 11:35
Excellent. I absolutely love the shading, palette and style.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/4/2008 09:28
I like it =) good work on the sweater, that beard of him really resembles hitler a bit, so does his face expression ^^, the chain is really nice aswell, the entire piece reminds me a bit of your orge ^^

Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/4/2008 08:45
Throughout this whole piece I have to say I love the chain the most.

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/4/2008 08:38
Is this hitler?
