It's been a long time...

on: February 02, 2011, 04:12:28 pm
It's been a long time since I've been here, mostly I've been a lurker.  I was in the mood yesterday and pixelled this.  Right now I only have access to upload a prescaled version.

First of all, can you tell what it's supposed to be?  Second, any suggestions on improving it as far as rough draft type of things, not necessarily AA or dithering, yet.

Clearly, it's an adolescent ninja, wearing Spalding socks, a short samurai sidewarm in a red sheath, a paper grocer back over his head, standing in a forest while playing his grandfather's magical flute in an attempt to summon Master Yanni.

Not to divert the conversation, but it was supposed to be a Komuso monk.. they wear baskets on their heads.  Does he look too short, or does the basket make him appear 'adolescent'?

It's his stature that gave me the impression. The yellow blob on his head and shoulder is very nondescript. No chance of being interpreted as a basket unless you're already aware of what you're looking at and knowledgeable enough to know about the basket thing.
