So, I went back and looked through the archives, and apparently I've gone almost two years without updating my Avatar skin. I really have been slacking off  :rolleyes:

I am so jealous of your face work. Every time you skin him it gets better. I don't like the black costume, though. Maybe add some highlights so it stand out more.  :P
Can't wait to see the finished piece.

Looks great! You should definately do more mainstream stuff. If only for the facework! Great stuff cant wait to see more.

I use Paint Shop Pro X2, love it's vector tools. Makes creating logos relatively easy.

Every time you skin him it gets better.

eh, that's a matter of opinion, methinks. Personally, I prefer the one I did waaay back during the FC days over the next couple.

For those who don't already know, the skin base I'm working on for this skin will be serving a dual purpose for me. On top of being a shiney base for my Tomato skin, I'm designing the whole thing in such a way that I'll be able to severely cut back on the work I have to do with every skin. Previously, I would restart every skin essentially from scratch, thus the slow outpouring of releases from me. This base, however, is layered so that I can quickly change it to the colors I want without all the tediousness of re-highlighting every. single. time.

In short, Me more skins make.

Oh, and check out them thumbs!

Holy crap! I had the same idea for my avatar. I was going to redesign him as a blue lantern. Maybe this should become as new trend?
