Since I got into pixel art, I haven't really done anything else besides that. So, uhm... here's some older stuff.  :P

This was done about 4 years ago. Now that I look at it again, the shading makes me crinch and the proportions are all over the place.  :-\
It's supposed to be Trap-Jaw from Masters of the Universe.



And then for some completely bizarre reason, I decided to turn him female:



The female Trap-Jaw was well recieved at a MotU fan board, and by popular demand I did a female version of Beast Man:

I feel like I'm starting to be less scared of using pens and stuff now.  Trying to draw that dude in the mirror.

makin a CG game (this is a mock-up, but coding has started though)...


here are the steps i took for the ship:

1- first i quickly created a basic ship shape in 3D Canvas, took a screen shot of top-down view, and moved into photoshop
2- in photoshop, I quickly blobbed in some basic colouring
3- upped the contrast, gringified it, textured it a bit more
4- added more dynamic lighting making the wings appear to be folded and added shadow in various places. *done*
