Lol! I love the intense stare in his eyes. He really believes in his gun. Lovely story telling. Congrats on the plug

The intense facial expression does it for me. Really cool.

Good job.

Nice character.
At first I thought it was Earthworm Jim revisited.

Congrats on the front page.

Very nice character and concept. I guess I'm the only one who thinks the water pistol looks a bit too clean, and sterile when compared to his suit, and everything else. Good stuff, though.

The ray gun feels too shiny and new compared to the rest of the scene. Everything has a dirty feel and a muted color palette except for the gun which is the most vibrant in color and totally clean. It just sticks out too much I think. Everything else is great.

Hi, George, my friend.
Thanks for your compliment.
Thank you every one for the amazing feedback.

About the gun, I must say that the contrast was intetional to make it looks out of place. I thought this would give some humor for the scene. I am enjoing to read different opinion about that gun, and I think very interesting how some people like it and some other no so much about the exact same thing.

Thanks for the constructive critics

Thumbs up The Legend

Hey Legend!

I witnessed the entire creation process of this project that was almost shelved. I have to admit that the key color you chose was better than that what I had suggested. For a brief moment thought you were delaying the completion of this illustration hehehehe But you went up to the end and surprised me this weekend. Top nouch again!

Congratulations my friend

Awesome character man !!! Like farhquad said, it do reminds me a lot of Earthworm Jim probably like a nemesis kind of character.

Brave but too silly thinking that he can threaten with a water pistol any danger he could find.
LoL... well who knows, maybe his watergun is full of "toxic sewer water".
About the gun being too clean, maybe a small scratch here and there would have helped. But on second thought, I think you were right to leave it like that, as it kind of "adds" to the "joke/not to be taken too seriously" feeling that results from combining the Fishman grim face& attitude with the silly toy water gun.

Again, congrats on such a great work!!
