A new and original, so I guess it has to be a new make up

Not silly at all and looking great already.
Perhaps the best way to show evolution for this guy is to focus mostly on the teeth. baby teeth > adult teeth > mutant teeth or something like that??? The teeth seem like the same on all 3 now and that's the focus feature...just a thought.

On the final evo he may develop little secondary teeth-faces over his shoulders or something.

I think the event says to create three different forms of one boss, not three different bosses.

The first little guy was just my rough idea.  The second one is the real 1st stage.  The stuff to the side is other ideas for mouth and eyes.

I plan to make each stage increasingly badass.  From cute to a worthy 3rd stage boss.

Hello good peoples of pixel joint! This is a WIP, any thoughts? The legs are bugging me for some reason, I can't seem to get them right.
Haven't put much thought into second and third stages yet.

I think the legs look off because her left leg tapers, but her right does not.  Maybe try to make the calf muscle a little more apparent?  I still think it looks good though.  Nice work.

As for other stages,  I think you should make her gradually more demonic.

I am testing out 8bitbeards awesome style and am having tons of fun with it. My boss is a bully that gets older as you do, going from a 7 year old playground bully to a 17 year old classic scumbag to the chunky mean boss who fired you.

Updated WIP for 1st stage

I think the one on the right has some character and is looking a lot less Super Meat Boy.

Is it mandatory to give only 3 sprites or can we draw some transitions too?

To me its more overall look than cleanings that matters, also details need to be concentrated on certain points of interest so you lead the eye. Just my opinion thought

I don,t really like your wood texture (If it's what you really want). You could work more on it.

Alright, here's the second form done. Linked instead of image because there are butts, not sure if that's something that we should be sensitive about (so don't click if you have a butt allergy)
Any thoughts?
Still haven't put much planning into third form.

I'm wondering, can have something like the names above each character or is it strictly the sprites? Also c+c please. Mainly on the third form I am not too pleased with him.

Some things you have to improve:

there is no texture at all.
the creature has 2 legs ( ok ) but this tail is sustaining it? there isn't much strength in it.

Should I make the mini guy my stage 1 or continue working on another?  I'm a little concerned that the next iteration may too different from the others.  Any thoughts/advice (I'm going to keep working on it anyway)?
