Hmm, interesting Kaki, I don't really like having a 3rd shade of green on top of the hood though, I think that helps making it look more metallic. Yours looks a bit more like a helmet rather than a hood compared to my latest edit.

I'm not going to use it, but I like what you did with the face and pulling the hood back a bit to show his hair more.
Probably the biggest problem aside from the hood, is the lighting on the nose and lips, I'm not trying to make them stick out of the hood, which is why I went more subtle on my lighting on the nose and the lips.

Here's my latest update... very little changed, I'm in the middle of trying to build a body for this guy...


*shrug*
I'm happy with how the face & hair looks, and fairly content with the hood in it's current state...
The body is going to take me a while :(

Thanks for the positive comments... who woulda thought I could do something like this?  :P

Edit: I think maybe I should work more on my dithering "skill", not sure...

A great improvement from the first. I'm just concerned with the palette, really. The bold red isn't exactly a realistic hair colour, and the green I think could be a bit more earthy, unless you're going for that.

I completely disagree on the hair, and here's why:

Bit darker, but then everything about that character is dark, aside from the hat. heh
(that is a screen shot of my old character I had in Ultima Online)

Neon hair colors ftw.
The greens on the hood I'm satisfied with, I can always change the colors to fit my mood if I want.

Looks a bit dodgy there.

Yours, works well, sort of a retro look.

Again, not a huge change, mostly just removed the majority of the dithering.

Edit: Oh, also removed a color.

quick edit:
Tried to clean up the lines and to use the colours a bit more efficiently (I've used same amount of colours):

I think I'm gonna stick with the most recent edit I did... at least until I decide that it no longer looks good to me.
Just recolored it for the hell of it:


You guys seem to like making your own edits of this... :) So I'd like to encourage everyone to make their own edit if they want or do as I did above and recolor it however you feel.

I'm still working on the body for him... so far its pretty crappy :P
