Leet Man


OK, this is the first time I submit some kind of artwork here and the first time I created a quick illustration for an original character.

This is a character I'd Like to call Leet Man. He's a digital superhero (similar to Freakazoid) inspired by the internet culture. He's been one of many characters that I've been developing for either an original animation or game of some kind. However, I'm not very skilled in artwork nor actionscripting at the moment.

His design is obviously based on Captain Commando(MvsC2 design) Tron (outfit) and even Tankmen (the face). The references are intended as parody/homages and nothing more.

This is a simple character design and the 1st time I do this so please go easy on me.
Let me know what you think.

I can tell that this is an older picture. It doesn't look near as good as a lot of your other stuff. Then again, all of your other stuff is sprite work... I just don't think the colors are that good. He seems that he's in too small of an area. I think the box should be widened out.

I do see some originality here. There just doesn't seem to be good shading. I guess the art portal isn't really a place for sprite work. You're still a great animator! I just don't think this was interesting.

you should totally make an animation, comic, or something using this character.

I'm still working on developing this concept as well as other characters.

Nice drawing but...

I can't really tell which way he's facing so I'll give you a 7/10.

Simply not good.

I am very sorry but i have to tell you that this piece has not even 1% artistic value.
First of all, this character has no whatever is called originality. As you said it yourself it's supposed to be a mixture of Tron,cpn command and the Tankmen. So instead of creating something real yourself you just pick random (!) characters and put them together which brings me directly to point 2: The effort made in this drawing.
I am counting 4 colours, maybe a glow effect and a gradient. What were you thinking ?
Even if this is to be seen as a - as you refer to it - simple character design it's really really bad. What were you focussing on while creating this masterpiece ? Maybe the "unique" proportions? The complex pattern on his suit? The shading (LMAO) which consists in your opinion of a shitty gradient? And these were just a few aspects. But long story short, I think i put more effort into this review than you did into your "character design". Try harder next time.

HadoukenDude responds:

hey, in my defense, I was never good at drawing,but AT LEAST I tried...

No need to sound like you have a broom stick shoved up your ass.

nice but

i heard of two left feet but two right hands?

HadoukenDude responds:

Consider it a prototype design of the character. It does have it's flaws and I'm aware of the "two right hands" goof up. I'm still new at this so give me a break, alright?
