I still have a very simple sketch 3 colors to show outer lines and small inner details. 

Its a scuba diving pirate because Neg likes to swim.  He has a eye patch on his goggles. (how ghetto is he!) His hook is a tad small yet I've already fixed that on my comp version. I need to fix his rump and his far arm, it is oddly shaped....

Pigggggggy:  That is a beauty piece... a great composition and wonderful work on the textures.  I actually like your more saturated version in the animation the best.

istvan:  Another kickass character design. If you are planning on going full out with animation a simple arm wave animation pointing to various spots on the map might give it some extra zing.

Monsoon2D:  That's a gigantor hairdo!  The work around the glasses and neck are just perfect. 

Zach:  Great start... the micro man makes a nice sidekick.

Godslayer:  Your pixel work looks good, but you might be running into the same issue as me where we need to spend more time on composition before going full steam ahead with pixelling.  I'm pretty sure I'm gonna start over on mine.  :-\

Zolthorg:  Awww, you're as cute as a bug's ear.

Here's a less sucky version for lief. Might come back and fix it up a bit or redo it altogether if I have time.

Sedge: Huge improvement! It's nice to see you tightening up your pixels, but the sketchy look is still quite effective especially in the clouds.
And thanks for the suggestion. I intend to have my pirate's good eye wobble around as the mini version of himself makes his way to the treasure.

Here's my updatee:


I still need to finish the shading on the jungle and sand, and I haven't begun to comtemplate the difficulties in animating this guy!

Cooool, iST.
Heh, you've really captured my style...Though I'm having trouble with capturing yours.

I like it as my own, but...
How do you go about pixelling stuff?
Eh, I Guess I should've Pm'd this.

VERY cool Xion Night! But I agree, it doesnt seem to neccessarily relate to my work in many ways, other than stylistically speaking. I think youve reflected my style sufficiantly, especially in the use of dithering other shading techniques such as a series of vertical lines. I wrote a post at PJ regarding my lineart a while back http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=440&PN=1 Might be helpful. My only suggestion would be to include references to specific works- but I'm not sure how easy that would be!

I don't see why you can't post it here, its coming along great!
