Here's the latest.  probably the last i'll put up before the contest closes:

obviously its still very much unfinished and most of the head is still just shape.  any dire words of wisdom?  btw, thanks for the help.

I liked the first iteration most.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I don't want to add any gore here such as torn skin or blood or anything.  Maybe later on i'll add some but i sort of like the idea that he is non threatening and kind of sad/pathetic. I think any gore/horror elements would subtract from that.  Also, he's not supposed to be realistic.  However, I've debated how much I want to add slightly more realistic details like cheekbones.  I'll try another shot and see how they look.  Right now he's sort of an undead ET, which I kind of like aesthetically, but I'll try integrating a bit more bony-ness.  I'll work on fading the jacket and reds out a bit but my pallete is running thin.  I'll try to make some cuts and replace them with another color to imply detail.  Oh, and I'm not sure if there'll be a background, but there will at least be a more appropriate color.  I'll post more tonight.

here's a quick edit.  I played with adding some bone structure.  I like bony so far but need to work on the left (ours) cheekbone/jawbone intersection.  What I want is withered.  Not realistically so, but everything on his face withered.  thus the head is shrunken and paltry as if the bone itself were withered like an old pumpkin.  And yes the ear sucks, I don't think ear cartilage really dessicates much so maybe I'll just give him s little hole there or something...

Just back, using the new challenge as a warm up to get re-motivated.

This is only part of the final.  So far I think the face is too flat ish.  And hes supposed to be dressed corny like that.  Unless of course thats how you dress in which case...yeah.

There's another with more stuff on the face.  any CC?

Also, If you really want it to stink of the amazon or similar rainforest,  give it large buttress roots, like in the photo.  In your pic it just sort of looks like the trunk widens at the base.  google buttress roots for lower angle ref pics.  If this is for a game I would keep the one you have and just make some more.  But more greenish gray and less brown would be better.

The extra one is a brighter one I selected for higher contrast.  I just didn't use it in these particular sprites.  But I should have.  and fun will be had.

Hey guys,
  I'm going to Florida for two weeks to do some herping (reptile hunting with a camera) so I shan't even think about this until I return.  I'll try and work out some of teh stuff then.  Krut, I have one more skin tone that I dind't use here but I'll try and work on something with more contrast.  Evil, the sword hand in the one you don't like so much sopposed to be his thumb curling up over the sword.  I meant to change but forgot/didn't  I'll address it.

true nuff.  I can respect wanting to build it yourself.  A quick word from someone whos gone down that path is to not try and build a home gym unless you have a really devoted group of people you can rely on for years.  I've built two and they are expensive, bulky, and time consuming.  Its fun for a while, but it gets really boring setting hard and fun problems.  And the inevitablilty of running out of room on your wall to do what you want is unavoidable.  If you have a big group of people who are willing to hang out and take turns both setting and solving makes it a far more palatable project.  But you will bulk up finger and arm strength fast if you really devote youself to it.  If you go this route, put as many t-nuts as you can and as much shit as you can on the wall so it takes longer to exhaust your options.  But if you live close enough to the greenbelt to bike there, exhaust that option first!  And if you're ever in upstate ny, scream at me and we can go check out the gunks or something.  Good job on the roof!  I dig working on something out of your league and eventually gettin' er!  Its been years since i've ticked a 12.
Cure- I have no opinion, just bullshit.

As much as I would like to take the libertarian Ayn Rand stance, I have to disagree with you MrMister.  I would agree with you if you were talking genetics.  I have zero interest in "being proud" of my ancestry.  It may occasionally interest me, But I was just born into it, etc.  But your culture is fairly inescapable.  Even a devout counterculturalist is simply defining himself by his born culture.  I don't believe you can ever divorce yourself from the framework of the culture you were raised in.  I don't mean massive generalities either, such as American, New Yorker, White, or things of that nature(even though they are huge factors).  I mean the the subtleties in the way you were raised.  Daniel Quinn defined culture quite succinctly by saying Culture is the way a group of people make a living and the behaviors that stem from that.  This will eventually boil into a nature vs nurture arguement.  Also, I'm not sure if you're seriously posing this question/statement as a legit thought, or if you're being condescending simply to exercise some internet-only sense of superiority. I hope its not the latter and you will extrapolate on your thoughts.
Adam-  you should get your ass out to the lake, dude, dwsing is great!  I can't tell if you lead or followed that roof cause there was a skipped bolt going to the anchors which were already clipped.  If you are learning to lead, or thinking about it, definitely get out over some water with no rope.  It'll really build some confidence and help you learn your limits in terms of fear and, well, ballsyness.  plus its great to whip out into the water on a hot texas day.  The closest to that I've got is in the dacks (small road trip) or Summersville in WV (medium road trip).  One thing I was wondering, I saw your finger board, how come you didn't just buy a hangboard from metolius?  You'll have much more diversity of holds and grips to practice on.
Also, has anyone seen this?  is it a joke?
