I'm sorry if there was any confusion about exactly what you are supposed to do. I've gotten a request to have some part of this challenge be a collaboration, as much as that is a good idea, I believe it is already too late to change the current challenge as it is. Though, if this turns out to be a big success, maybe we can do something in honor of halloween, but make it a collab instead of "pixel your partner as a ghost" or something. I have some interesting ideas already stewing in my head on this.

I don't mind if you guys are showing off your pieces to eachother, sending them back and forth and what not, talking about them, thats actually the whole point of the challenge, to get a sensation of your partner by using your verbal skills and artistic talents to create a minds eye vision of them. I think that is a big part of the challenge, trying to capture the "essense" of your partner, damn me for choosing pep! He's got such a stylistic art approach, and he's such a character, but that's part of the challenge for me, along with trying to work on my anatomy skills, shading, coloring, etc..

OKAY. Here's what I've got so far:

17 colours, some of which directly taken from Xion Night's works.

The pirate is based on a number of Xion Night's larger characters as far as pose and shading details go. I also tried to make it slightly dark and twisted.

The 'conversation' bubble will be an animated treasure map, which will see the character run and hop his way to the treasure chest (x marks the spot!) at the lower left hand corner, impersonating XN's current avatar. Trying to incorporate as much of XN's style as possible, but staying original at the same time.

 Not too sure about the background yet. It's really simple so far as not to distract, but I think I'll need to do something with it before I can animate the map.

Finished!

15 colors, I believe.

Also, I assembled an animated gif showing my progress, as well as testing other color schemes midway through the work. The last frames in the animation are nitpicks and color tuning.

holy crapness... that's friggin great!

On with a pirate joke!
So a pirate goes into a bar with a steering wheel in his pants.
The bartender says, "You know you have a steering wheel in your pants?"
The pirate replies, "Yaaarr, 'tis drivin' me nuts!"

wow pep, that's incredible, you really nailed the challenge right on!

I'm working on yours, it's just slow this week because I started a new job, so my time is limited, but be assured that I should have something done by the weeks end.

I'm going to attempt a fully animated piece, so mine will take a while, especially since I haven't done animation work in a long time. Right now I'm working on a sort of 'splash screen' of when Pirate Zolthorg initiates his "super". (Very Capcom-esque.)

- EDIT -

No longer a splash screen, but an introduction. And instead of a fighter, I think I'll stick with a really nice platformer. Hoorah!

Progress (As of 9/29/05)
