Actually my Christmas was pretty good, but I'd still like some C+C on this...



12 colours, including the green which I would've made transparent but I always seem to forget to do now days...
Was limiting myself to 10, but I liked the contrast the blue eyes made...

The character was originally designed as part of a cast of gamblers in a Casino comic I was planning on drawing, but decided against.
Anyway, I quite liked the sketch, so I decided to convert it to Pixels; so here he is...
Midway through, I begun to picture him in a Casino game for the Nintendo DS. I don't plan on attempting such a game, but I made the portrait as though I were. Hence the empty space down the bottom. I figured there'd be a table covering that part, and his lower arms and hands would be animated on a seperate layer.
So now that that bit of backstory is out of the way, crit the hell out of him!

Lineart if anyone wants to have a go at colouring it...

I already posted this in the Lineart thread...

I quite like it. Better than I could do except his nose looks weird and he appears to have a Glasgow smile...

I love the color scheme.  The only thing I think looks wierd, is the little piece of shading on his left shoulder, right next to his neck.  There is the darkest brown, and a shade lighter, I think there needs to be less of the lighter shade right there, it just looks wierd.  Anywho, nice work.
