OK, so I started this thing long long ago on the old pixelation forums, back when pixelation was on swoo.net, hell I even remember bo the sucker getting involved. Basically we're practicing our pixeling skills by making simple vegetables and giving them humanoid features, oh and of course making them disgruntled! For those of you who don't know what "disgruntled" means: "to make ill-humored or discontented ". Basically mad, grumpy, etc.. Happy vegetables and fruits may be a different project.

NOTE: ANYONE CAN DO THIS!!!

The biggest problem we had with the first try of this was the fact that people didn't feel their skills up to snuff, that doesn't matter! Take a shot at something, post a WiP and get help on it. Some items will be challenging, like a shiny eggplant or maybe something as simple as a apple.

The requirements:
Must be Fruit or Vegetable
Must have a face with a disgruntled expression
Must be Bi-pedal ( 2 legs ) or a quadraped ( walks on all 4 )
Must be in Color
Must provide its name IE: The angry carrot, The enraged tomato, The disgruntled Fig, etc..
Must have fun!

Take all the time you want, ask for help, eat a donut, watch full house, I don't care, I miss stuff like this that was on the old pixelation, and on that note I submit the first entry.. The famous Mr. Disgruntled Broccoli!

Depressed is completely different from disgruntled.

"Discontented" is a word synonymous with Depressed, isn't it? Anyways, I'll change it with pissed-off potato, I guess.

I could be wrong, because I'm no English major, but disgruntled is supposed to mean like, unsatisfied and unhappy, and depressed is obviously like, sad, I suppose.

But I could be wrong.

enough, let's not argue about what disgruntled means, basically, as long as they aren't smiling you should be ok.

Carnivore Carrot (or Bunny Slayer :P)


12colors
No legs, but 3 items (bunny skull mask, axe like weapon, and battle horn)
It eats bunnies :0

[EDIT] And of course, no bunnies were harmed while pixelling it

The Siamese Cherries:
Left cherry took a path of smoking, sex and building with LEGOs, while the right one became a vegetarian, a member of the peace core and refuses to drink coke with lime...yet even through all that there still stuck together.

wow sorry about the lack of putting the new ones in the main thread, i didn't even notice this thread had changed! Anyway, lookin good, we have a nice group of angry vegetables, maybe we should animate them or put them into a scene together or something.
