30~ Minutes

I was almost too ashamed to post this. I know I could've done better. Props to everybody who gets the reference!

Aw man! I saw the topic title and I was so sure about what I was going to do. I should have known that I'm not the only fan around. Shucks. Meh, I'll do it anyway. :D Never hurts to have more Starmen.

I suddenly realized once I finished my sketch that I wasn't sure if this was acceptable. Starman is the name of a enemy in a game but I don't know if that makes this tribute an "integral part of the challenge." I'm thinking not. Ergo, this sketch shouldn't be voted on and I'll add a proper one after this edit, just in case. PS/40 mins.

45 minute, PS CS3, wacom

I need to lay off the textures that make no sense in the context of the piece but for whatever reason I like it. Must need sleep.

Star Man, the wrestler. I BELIEVE there is a character like this on the NES game. (

58 minutes.

MUCH better than the last one, though I realize I'm not great at the whole metallic shading thing. Or color shading in general.

It is a while since I posted anything here. Thought I would make a try again. This is my take of the Starman: A superhero travelling the cosmos in search of his destiny. Painter 55 minutes. **Edit: worked 10 minutes more on it. So 65 minutes total. I like the composition of this image but there are lots of details that could be improved.

PS/57 mins

damagecontrol, I love the top down perspective.
