Worse. The cool colour contrast was doing the picture good.

Alright, I'll accept this, although I have to say, I did like the string of tiny broken hearts. Now that this is accepted, you're allowed to fiddle with it further if you so desire, but I'm content with where it's at if you are! Good job.

I appreciate the effort, and it's better than before, but I'm afraid I'm gonna have to say no and relinquish your spot, it's just not up to standard. Thanks for participating though!

Let me know if your pupil's crave anymore alterations.

Dood, this is already so much cooler. PERSONALLY, I liked it when you had the rainbow-y zipper, I thought it looked hella cool, but I like it as it is now too, already a big improvement.

I think what he meant is that the contrast was better when your background wasn't the same colour as the face. Good progress so far, but you've got a lot to add/clean up! Keep going :D

Okay, new progress list!

Sorry that I kinda claimed a piece then disappearing for a little while. I'm still creating the piece and will have something to show y'all in the next couple of days. I guess looking at the deadline you lot probably didn't give it a second thought, just thought I'd let ya know.

using the emoticon i picked in the hope that experience with it gives me better ideas for it.

I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

I think it's well done, colours are nice, although generally, I was hoping for more innovative ideas concerning the faces. I'mma accept it, but perhaps think about revamping and adding more of a personal flair to it. Also, Lintire says he's gonna put dicks on it if you don't make it more interesting. His exact words were"make your entries a fucking interesting interpretation or there will be a big floppy dick drawn on them when submitted into the collab".

I cannot speak for the validity or integrity of these statements, as the flash is in his hands, and although I disagree, he can pretty much do whatever he wants. So as a PSA: MAKE YOUR PIECES CREATIVE/VISUALLY INTERESTING, ELSE RUN THE RISK OF HAVING A FLOPPY PENIS DRAWN ON TOP OF IT. Again, I don't know how I feel about that either, so I apologise.

Nope, sry. This is my entry, take it or leave it.

Also, Lintire says he's gonna put dicks on it if you don't make it more interesting.

I'm okay with that.

That looks great but I made my drawing how it is. I did think about how to draw this and a monochrome and rough (pixel like) drawing style was how I wanted it.

Just so you know-
Monochrome: being or made in the tones of a single color

Also I agree with Lucky- the cyan and red are kind of retina-scarring and have no real relationship to each other. Why did you choose them?

I disagree with lucky and jess, I think the colors look good; maybe tone of em done a bit, but still keep em bright. I also much prefer the pixelated look to lucky's shoddy trace.

'Tis a strange, but interesting idea - is the guy's body sad that it's overweight? Anyway, I think you should get rid of the butt-chin line, the nose/shirt folds between his pecs, and revise the crotch line, it kind of looks like the guy wet himself. Also, the shirt looks more pissed off than sad, which is the emoticon you chose. You have made the crotch of a trim and muscular man and you need to change the shape to fit a large, rotund man. Revise! Anyways, if you spend more time on this and keep working on it, it'll make it in.

Excellent! It turned out much better in the long run, I like it heaps. Totes approved.

It's nice of you two to offer input, but apparently he likes it like this, so it's no biggie. Thanks for the feedback though, it gets stressful to be the only source of it or whatever. Woooo...

Hey now, don't gotta be a dick about it. Lucky was just tryin' to help out and offer input, I think it looks cool.

So anyways, the only open spot left is 27. Any takers???

You're slowly going in the right direction, although I think you missed the point of my suggestions. By 'butt chin', I meant the butt chin of the sad face, which is also the guy's stomach. The vertical line doesn't make much sense. Also, 'fraid to say it, but Cloudy has a point. I think overall, the composition is kind of weak. But, that doesn't mean you can't participate. I think you should continue to work on this, but you'll probably have to work it from the ground up I think. I'm curious - what program are you using and what's your strategy to create linework? Maybe if I know what you're doing, I can give you tips on what not to do. I know paint.net has a basic line tool that you could try using that's much smoother than your technique already. And finally, where are his arms? Is he a double amputee, or are they supposed to be folded behind his back? I ask, because I used to do that a lot for the latter reason, and I recommend not doing that. I did, and it always just ended up looking lazy.

Yeah, look maybe the execution is bad and I'm working on it. But I think the concept is interesting. Great, scary crotch, got it. So bear with me here, worse case I don't make the collab and you can step up to the plate. But if i'm going down it's tooth and nail. I can make this work. There's plenty of time.

Spags, using GIMP, the lines look smooth until it gets Jpeg'd. I got a few ideas and I'm going to take your advice, now that I understand what you meant.
