perhaps its because you havent shaded them yet, but his feet look really strange... with a head that big, wouldn't he fall over?
i love the face though, can't wait to see it finished

Here's my attempt. Not really content with it. It's having some readability issues, so it seems. Anyone have some suggestions?

By the way, are you allowed to re-enter an updated version of your work if you've already uploaded it in the Pixeljoint gallery?

This actually started extremely different (think rayman and SD), but wound up like this. Not sure if I'll submit or not, it feels very boring to me.

@Setzer
Its not a stereotypical style of Bigfoot that's for sure, quite interesting. My first thoughts were of a clown though, because of the whiteness of the face although now it looks like a skull mask to me. The right hand side version looks more consistent, with the lefts torso the left head looks outta place. Worth putting forward in any case!

Here is my WIP, its hard to read and I need to change my palette though. I'd like some critique to help me along.

I'm glad I finally have some time to do some spriting again.
Here's a quick wip what do you think?


@Cilein
Your palette could indeed use some contrast.

Wow kevink, I wanted to make something like yours, but I failed too many times, and started in other way.
Your piece is awesome, no doubt. One of my favorites so far.


Here is mine, I'll make the hands and the face, and I want to change the foot.

I thought a baboon-bigfoot hybrid would be pretty sweet.
 'A' is the basically done version, I just can't quite decide on the hands between the two...
any suggestions?

A imo. Is the only difference between the two the black 'round the outside eye? Can't see anything else :P

@ skamocore Dose it stray to far from the actual creature? Its also loosely based on the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph.

Maybe give that green a tinge of blue, and for his pecs maybe use one of your darker browns for one pixel dead center just above the arm. Great update in any case!

@Oreo - Honestly, I would say a big 'no' to that piece fitting any description of a bigfoot/yeti, but I think I'm going to have to begrudgingly go with an 'ok', as we've let some other pieces in with atypical amounts of limbs.

I think you should work on it a lot more, though. At the moment, you're really sitting at the bare minimum in terms of quality. Is there any reason you've made it so small?

edit:


Alright I've made you an edit - even though I still think you should be using much more of the canvas:

Thanks so much. Comparing this to mine I can see what (many) concepts I'm missing. I'll get started fixing it.

Also can you do something on the site to kinda help teach us newbies?
