Some kind of berry man.

on: January 21, 2007, 04:22:36 am
I didn't set out for him to be a berry, but he turned out that way.  And while it's rather disturbing, I think he looks delicious.



10 colors.  One of my first attempts at a pixel art bigger than a standard game sprite.  c&c?

EDIT: Shaded the area behind his ear that I forgot about.  Also, here are my lines if anyone else would like to color them:

I love the head, the clean curves and the floating hair/leafs are...well delicious  :D .The body doesnt have the same appeal...it looks like a copout to me, like an attempt at "correct anatomy" or something, while it IS well done it just doesnt fit...I wish you removed/Remade it and gave the head some special shiny treatment....=O

Thanks for the kind words.

I wasn't really trying for realistic anatomy, just the same sort of stylized angles and curves as the face.  The main reason I stopped where I did is because that's where my sketch stopped, and I realized I shouldn't do a full body at that size before I've practiced a bit more.  Plus I really like his bicep just hanging there, reminiscent of a juicy drip.  :)

I don't mean to rationalize a poor design choice.  What don't you like about the body?  Where should I have stopped, the base of the neck?  Otherwise, is there anything I could have done to improve the body?
