Commissioned by [ninjaedit]Waylon[/ninjaedit] Smithers as a secret anti-green activist weapon for Mr. Burns, it was modelled after the plant's MVP of the year, Homer Simpson - position gained largely due to utilizing pecking bird toys that kept pushing buttons on panels, allowing Mr. Burns to downsize personnel.

Due to an accident, a programming error in the Simpsonator caused it to malfunction and escape, burning parts of Springfield down before it was disabled permanently.

Tried to make it look more like a Simpsons character than the original in the WIP thread - drop it out of the challenge if it's still not enough.


edit: Increased size of cranium/forehead, various small fixes here and there

Yes, this is a totally original character, never hear about it. Mcclane removed from competition and this stills?

Thanks everyone!

Hatch: Thanks for the advice and edit - it certainly looks better with that, edited.

Manupix: I might run out of time, but I'll see if I can figure something out for that.

Wolverine: Oops... fixed!

it's cool.  Nice work.  By the way it's Waylon Smithers.

Agree with Hatch; also, the 'ears' (?) consistently appear to me as the two noses of a two-faced profile, because of the (otherwise fantastic) light.

Reminds me this:

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 12/19/2009 16:43

 I think giving him more cranium/forehead would make this look a ton better and make him look moe like a simpsons character.

EDIT: quick sloppy edit to illustrate:

Amazing! Like Dex said, that 2nd lighting's great.
