Your eyes are not deceiving. I've somehow managed to improve a bit as a spriter, simplistic artstyle aside.
So anyway, being a guy who feels like moving on to producing originally sprited content, I chose everyone's favorite dumbass metalhead as a graphics practice. Early reports state that, few cut corners there and there aside, I've somehow managed to nail the Mike Judge artstyle, all with my prowess of tracing and vectors. Not like that would be a guarantee that I would churn out even better looking custom characters, but if I would, then my 2014 is certainly shaping to be interesting.
Get him here, and uh... Happy Double Holidays, I'd guess.... heh-heh.
