I like yellow, and I am a juggler. Ill move to Berlin this January because I have a voluntary job as a circus teacher at a youth circus.
The rest of my life I have lived in the Netherlands.
I play ukulele, I work for a company that promotes fruit in workspaces and I enjoy making pixel art ;).

Thanks for the great replies guys!  ::)

What do you think of these two copies I made? I will try to make some more poses myself as well.
All drawn with a mouse  :blind:

Hi Lorath,
Thanks for the help!

It is supposed to be a male orc, and yes it is a pretty defensive pose right now.
I dislike the chest you made right now, but looking into more chest pictures I see that I probably have to change some things ;). Originally I had a reference that had those inward diagonals on the top very very strongly and I thought it looked cool, but I can't find that picture any more, and most men hardly seem to have it.

As for the thing on his back: It is supposed to be an axe, but I know it reads very bad. Also it does not really serve a purpose so I think I will remove it completely. But doesn't he need at least one other weapon or something else to keep is coolness factor?

Yeah, the hands are pretty bad.. In your fingers you flipped the hands upside down, I am not sure if I like that, but at least the shape of the sword is much more obvious in your version! Also I will play a bit with the height of the sword.

So, things I had in mind for this:
I noticed I was limiting myself too much on the color count thingy, often trying too hard to keep the colors low which did not make things nicer, so here I wanted to be very genrerous on the amount of colors!
Also, I wanted to take advantage of this piece being pixel art, and therefore use strong horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines and try out the excessive highlight thing like I see in some pieces (mrmo_tarius on pixeljoint for example)

So far it is going quite well I think, but let me know what you see!

When I started with the clown, I had never thought it would evolve into this. It won't get much larger I guess ;)

I am usually not so fond of a sinister theme, but I could always try out alternate palettes and see if I change my mind :). Both clowns would fit in it, but would the giraffe?

The bright colors are already standing out right? I mean, the whole piece is kinda 'in-your-face' because of the colors...
I still do not know what I have to do with the wagon...

I ditched the animation for now, I could not get it how I wanted. Perhaps I will try later again

Do you like giraffes?

So far this world contains 1 tent and 1 clown, thats it :).

Thanks for the comments about the clown! I do not understand where the stray pixels are coming from, they do not show in my image editor (GraphicsGale)

Of course, I should do the eyes the other way around... Big when the mouth is small, small when the eyes are big. I will turn that around and see if I can throw his head back, you are right that it should be maniacal!
