From challenge winner Kaiseto comes this week's challenge. Create either a 1/2 body or a 3/4 body portrait of a character that could be used during a dialogue sequence in a game. Some examples of this are shown here (Clockwise from top left: Disgaea, Disgaea 2, Prince of Persia: The Fallen King, The World Ends With You). Remember, the bottom-right image is an example of what not to do.
The character can be anything as long as it is capable of speech. The pixel art should be the character only. Everything outside the character should be fully transparent.
You are to make a portrait that can be used with multiple dialogs; the expression must be suitable for all three of the dialogues listed below:
Canvas Size - Max 180 x 240.
Colors - Max 32.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
