I liked Jose's first concept drawings, maybe you should hang onto them and make the 3rd game "Pico in 2010" but with a better name. Just assume Nene failed her suicide attempt miserably and Darnell just shrugs when reminded he was supposed to only have five years to live. Eh? Ehhhhh?

All the styles were great, but I have to agree. Jose's style is best suited for Pico. While the anime style was nice, Pico looks like a Lemming. I can just picture him saying "Oh no!" in a high, squeaky voice and then blowing up in a puff of sparkles.

I have to say, all of em look great. My favorite would have to be Zeebarfs though. It just looks more innocent and funnier. But, I know that probobly wont go through because pretty much everyone wants Jose's. Those are great to, but my only problem with them is the hair. I think with Jose's, the har should be changed a tad bit. Its a little like its pulling at his scalp or something. His face looks elongated. I dunno. All of em are good, im just saying my peice.

That could be Pico during his "coked-up" years. :)

When I think of an anime pico, my mind immediately went to Outlaw Star's Jim Hawking. Not that Cardcaptor you made (shudder).
Seriously. Id think an anime Pico, done right, would rock. You could go one of two ways.
For a young boy, make him as tough as possible. Like Mononoke's Ashitaka, or Gundam's Heero. Make the eyes a bit smaller, the irises/pupils a lot smaller. Young but grizzled.
Or, you could just go off the deep end and make him as kawaii as possible, until like Compdude said, he wouldnt have the guts to wield a shotgun. Then, make him wield a shotgun! For that Baby Bonnie Hood Charm.

As for that last thread's discussion, That sucks dog balls about how you cant host no more. I dont blame ya. You're having trouble hosting hourself it seems. At least do you know of any NG Network worhty low cost servers?

A college setting would take one beyond that!

Pico 2 actually picks up with the ending from Pico 1. In fact, it is only supposed to be a few days after Pico saves the school - so I have to remove the "6 Months Later" from the ending of Pico 1. The game starts in the school, but soon expands into the entire city (complete with subway system). There are several storylines that develop throughout, each with their own baddies - it is all tied together, though. I won't give away any more than that. :)

Yeah... Nene drives me nuts, because I don't want her to just be another Kenny (the character who dies and always comes back) - but that's basically what she is. Well maybe she never quite dies - she is always saved somehow. There ya go. I actually had some funny ideas along those lines... But I'll save them.

I might do a third Pico game with the current "animation set"... It would cut down production time and we could focus on making the story even more epic (I want to take Pico around the globe in Pico3). Pico 4 could possibly see the older Pico, though. I'm getting ahead of myself. :)

That hair could work pretty well for anime Pico... Maybe Pico could just jump from style to style, who knows. I'm happy with the current one, though... Feels more "fresh". :)

As for hosting... I always recommend phenominet.com - they seem to get the job done for a good price.

I liked Jose's works. Pico looked great in the Hobbes style rendition in my opinion.
Jose's older looking picos also had a certain appeal.

Oh yeah one more thing. I like it better when you keep the Pico games interactive. Darnell's pyro was pretty cool, and I liked the whole "god" philosophy, but hmmm, it would have been fun to control him.
So in future games, make the games as interactive as possible, thats whats so cool about them! =)

Jose is the master of flash. Those Dreamcast pictures of Pico look good. Pico has also grown up a little since his first adventure, so he should look a little older.

I think alienatures Idea rules! That would be great to use jose Ortizs 1st pic though for his teens only that pic of him flippin the birdy and holding his crotch just kind of looks gay. That would be tight also if you could spray paint like in Jet Grind Radio.
keep up the good work :)

JOSE ORTIZ' FINAL SHORTER/YOUNGER PICO IS FUCKING AWESOME. HE LOOKS RAD, SOMEONE WROTE IN THIS FORUM SAYING JOSE IS OVER RATED, BULLSHIT, THE ARTWORK IS 1ST RATE KICK ASS!

DEFINATELY USE THE YOUNGER ORTIZ PICO, AND IF PICO 3 EVER COMES AROUND IN THE FUTURE, YOU COULD USE THE OLDER ORTIZ PICO, AS HE IS GROWING UP, THAT'D BE COOL.

Ya know Tom, you could use the 2nd to last PICO concept art for some kickass fighting game where you could be like PICO, DARNELL, NENE, one of the ghetto bots, one of the uber kids etc.
BUT ITS PROBABLY NOT GONNA HAPPEN (but i can dream, can't i).

Also the CLAVIN n HOBBES style KICKS ASS!!!!!!!

I agree with someguy. A Pico fighting game with the JGR style would kick some major ass. Tom dude, please consider when your done with Pico 2.
