In many ways this is some of the best pixel art I've seen here. Nice going

This has stayed with me, you see. Because DE here shows great cluster control before clusters were a glint in the eye of my goat.

This was quite tricky, and I did not want to take away from the greeble too much.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Here's a more conservative entry ( at least compared to Arnes) + a bonus unfinished Magneto from a few weeks ago :-X

This was the most difficult cluster thing I've had to do in a long time.

hah looking at the other edits and Arne reference sheet I realize that the guy is holding a purple gun. I couldn't understand what that was at close zoom.

You made him more Gangsta by holding it sideways ;)

The outlines makes him so much clearer, but isn't that cheating?
He has way better contrast and cleaner shading too.

Does this thing count?

I've always liked the way Samsho does clusters but maybe this is too big...?

I love Toki/Juju Densetsu, but the artwork could be improved.



Just pick one, unless you wanna do all three variants.
Extra challenge in case you are changing colours: Keep the hex values to 00, 11, 22, 33.. FF, because the game runs in RGB444.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
