[WIP] Evil Clown Doll

on: November 06, 2010, 02:03:02 am
Well, I've been working for about three hours on this latest pixel art. It's not finished; you can see the light green shapes I am using as guidelines for the doll's collar.

I wanted to post it so get some C&C and I simply am too tired to keep working one it. Remember, it's a creepy doll. It's not meant to look too much like a real person by any means.

I did a quick paintover to illustrate where I think you could improve.



First, let me say, there is no shame in mirroring one side of the face to ensure you have a perfectly even look. The eyes are a different shape, as is the forehead, the cheeks and the ears ( and yes I am taking into account the change due to expression ). The eyes are too far apart as well.

I don't want to hear the excuse "well it's a monster so it's supposed to look ugly". Once you make perfect face, uglyfying it is easy.

One of the subtle improvements in EvilEye's edit is the use of sharper angles.  For some reason, sharper angles are scarier than wider ones.
