I'm living in Norway at the moment, so I thought I'd have them as my team submission.  Norway didn't make it into the world cup this year - but they certainly tried.  If only they'd had this troll on their team they might have been more successful.

Here's a WIP quicktime of the creation of this.  I'm afraid I noticed after beginning that the recording hadn't started, so there is a little bit that got truncated.  At least I got all the colouring and shading.

One of the ideas I was playing with was that others would draw characters that fit on the podium, therefore making these feet look like the feet of a giant troll.  Hopefully that idea works.  :)

Hatch:  haha, yea, he probably is quite the bowlegged troll!

He he, clever and well done. I could be wrong, but it seems like he'd have to be awfully bowlegged for his legs to be at those angles?

damn, that was pretty much my idea too =/

Jeremy: I left the text behind as I liked how it looked - like graffiti on a wall - and I wasn't sure if we were allowed to remove it.  :)

 Clever :D

Why leave the text behind? O_o

Manupix: good point about the brightness of the red in the flag.  I've now toned it down.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/22/2010 03:12

Excellent! =)

The flag is a bit too bright, I think.

The reason his outline is so saturated and the reason the troll is blue, is because I was basing the character's colour on the blue from the Norwegian football team.  Have I misunderstood what was meant by "creature based on the colours of your favourite country's team" ?

Much nicer than your other stuff; appreciate the WIP video. But just remember, "Pixel a fantasy character or creature based on the uniform design and/or colors of your favorite country's team." Go on, paint his toenails :P

Also, maybe the outline is a bit too saturated?
