[W.I.P] Mushroom Man

on: March 26, 2007, 12:44:14 am
Decided to start working on a possible avatar. At first it was just going to be a generic mushroom but I decided to give it a little twist and make him look a bit evil. I'm trying to use a grungry dither style but I'm very bad at dithering and this is where I need some help. Edits and crits are more than welcome. Oh and before anyone says anything, the outline will be recolored eventually.

Looks a little bit.. Phallic... Unless you were going for that. (for some reason?)

Either way, good job so far..

Haha well I wasn't exactly aiming for it to be phallic, but most mushrooms seem phallic as is.

The first thing that came to mind when I opened this thread was "Penis?" :huh:. So yeah, it might be a little too phallic... :lol:

I wouldn't use that as an avatar because it looks too much like a... penis.
Make the cap wider, that should fix it.
Does scaling an image blur it?

That makes me want to use it more  ^-^. I'll have to go back and widen the cap though if it bothers you guys.

If you had given it shoulders (or oversized breasts) I would have thought the similarity was entirely on purpose, but I think that even if you don't care if it looks like the end of a penis it doesn't resemble a mushroom which would imply a change of sorts is needed.

The face down section of it looks rather flat, and I think it could stand with a bit more curve.
You also have an extra bit of light coming from the left that isn't hitting the shroomhead but is hitting the "body" section.

Perhaps this is less phallic?

Well then maybe you could tell or show me what I'm doing wrong instead of just saying worse.
