I thought the bad AA on Snake's entry was part of their charm. Though I'm certain I'm a minority in thinking that. :-\

My thoughts exactly.

I am torn.
Regardless, I don't think other people should be editing the AA on Snake's set.
There's a subtle difference between creating new expressions and altering the existing ones, even if it is to do something so small as changing the AA.

Edit:
Made some more:


Edit 2:
Made more again:

The Yus one is waiting for Helm to play around with hues on.
I particularly like how the ? one turned out. Somehow I think the simplicity, and difference of it just works.

Those are pretty awesome Faceless. But some things in your 2nd edit look funny to me. Like on the ? one, it's lacking inner AA on the mouth (I don't know if you call it that) and I highly dislike how his right eye gets cut off. For me it doesn't "just work". Also, on your Yus, it looks really off in the way everything is tilted. My last say is how the "wink" is. It looks more like he's grimacing or in pain not winking. Overall, the 1st set is better.

Owel. I had 5 minutes, so I attemted Larwick's. Would like to hear if the style is right.

Edit 1: Moustaches/Mustaches



Edit 2: Extremely Bad AA!



Just for fun:

mine are on the bottom.

I liked the mustache thingy, so i tried it out

more to come later perhaps!



@faceless - those are great, the emotions conveyed are very well done and detailed

@muffin - i disagree, the wink is fine. the yus isn't really off either, i think it's more squinty than that, though.

 Those are pretty sweet Alkaline! But your mustaches are much better than mine...

But about the yus smiley, I'm new to pixeling and would like to understand this.

The whole square tilts up to the right, yet it''s right eye goes down. And by looking at the Pixelation smile it looks off !yus!

I guess you just don't understand the ? one.
The whole idea is that it looks unfinished and is on a different angle to the others.
I think that goes hand in hand with ? to be honest, but I'll do a more detailed one later.
On the Yus one, I was aware of the face being on the wrong angle, but I thought it fit the character.
I'll redo it using the old one as a reference.

Edit:

Done. It's a bit more detailed than the others, but I guess it'll do.

Thank you Faceless for the explanation. I am in agreement with you, of how I just didn't get the ? emote. It makes a lot more snse to me now. I also now understand the yus and it really doesn't bother me anymore. Thanks for the clarification.
