This is my insane attempt to mimick fool's style.  There is still a lot that I would change... but I won't be able to work on it anymore before the competition ends.

Oh and thanks to everyone who critiqued the WIP I tried to fix as much as possible without completely recking it

Very cool attempt at the imitation:) The only thing is that the harsh black stick figures could do with a little softening.

Metaru - I plan on working on it some more, just not at this moment.  Need to let it breathe for a bit before I come back to it.  I might possibly redo it completely in my own style.  Either way this is definitely not the final version.

considering the amount of time fool usually takes on each pice(we're talking about weeks, at least), you did well. the background specially captured fool's vibe, as i said on the piece.


this totally calls for more work, despiet the challenge. go ahead, i doubt someone would care if you keep working on this.

Thank you for all the comments everyone!

Honestly, I think I just bit off more than I could chew.  Once I went back and attempted to fix the background (take out most of the dithering, attempt to fix the colors etc.) the forground elements really suffered. And then I ran out of time... :P.  Basically the more I messed with it the worse it got... and now I'm sick of looking at it so I probably won't be fixing anything any time soon.  However, the critiques are appreciated.

Basically one cannot come close to truely imitating Fool's style... and they sure as hell can't do it in a week. Atleast I can't... :D

I agree the style similarity is there. I like the mushrooms the most (8D

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 4/5/2009 23:25

very recognizeable :D as mentioned, the techique is lacking, but, I rly have to agree with Jal! Kudos!

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/5/2009 23:20

great effort!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/5/2009 22:03

You deserve kudos for your entry. You got the essense pretty well. The technique is lacking but really who could match the original.

The good AND the bad is that you have not made a fool of yourself

SHANN0N (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/5/2009 20:44

I could definitely tell that it was fool you were trying to imitate, even from the preview, but the lack of detail and shading on parts, especially the lack of highlights goves it away just as quickly. Its still pretty good though

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/5/2009 20:26

 It is a bit foolesque but it lacks detail, like you could've added texture to the musrooms and more colour in general etc. Good job, much better than my attempt at fool last year haha

AA this please =) 

Scarodactyl (Level 8 Ruby) @ 4/5/2009 19:35

I recognised the Fool in it immediately.  You did manage to capture several elements of his style; good job.  Also, I lurve the bg and general image, though I think you could have improved the meshing a bit by making the little guys faerieish (pointy ears or smth).

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/5/2009 19:24

It's not prefect, but I recognized the style.

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 4/5/2009 18:55

Agreed the green shirt guy is totally foolith

ScubaSteve234 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/5/2009 18:45

I thought it might have been fools when the picture came up .

Nice work.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/5/2009 18:25

Green shirt guy looks totally Foolish.

(pun intended)


Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 4/5/2009 17:56

Some parts are really sharp and dithered...

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/5/2009 15:48

A lofty goal trying to fill Fool's shoes. XD

But it's not bad. ^_^
