Danny! This is awesome! Great character, lots of great touches and Amsterdam Easter Eggs. But hands down the best touch is the fry hanging out of his mouth. So great. I’d like to see this guys simplified. Maybe ditch the baseball diamond shape, the ball and frame him with another bat maybe? Maybe just a feather pattern edging for his right shoulder? He looks like a pigeon which is great. But that fry! Great stuff!
Marcus! Very cool, very scary but in different way than Ryan’s entry. I think it’s great but, I’d ditch stars and the guns and stick with the dude. I really like his bandana and could see that pattern done on the visor fabric. Very cool stuff! Lets see it cleaned up!
Slavo! This is great way to do an alien themed hat. I really like the hand a lot and the markings is a great idea. I’m wondering if you could combine the markings and the hand more closely. Like maybe they’re tattooed on his hand or carved into his hand kind of like a Guillermo Del Toro character? But seriously that hand is awesome! Great start!
Scott! Love the simplicity of this but it should be a saw blade and not a gear, right? Also, the style doesn’t fit the story as well as it could. What about giving it an retro-trademark vibe? Or a burned into leather vibe? Great start!
Mr. Z! The gambling riverboat man is such a rich area to draw imagery from and I live the rat character you created, I think it has a lot of charm and elegance to it just like a rat in a suit would. I’m wondering if you could reposition him so he’s coming at us, or at least looking at us. I’d also like to see a playing card tucked into his hat band or some other storytelling element that would help kick this story off. Great start!
Jordan! Way to keep it simple. I feel like the entries in this competition have been too complex. I think you’re close but I’d like to see some other ship marking on this “A”. Maybe some blue or red striping, maybe a porthole or 2. Great start, now think more iconic, more story!
