Really cool character! He looks like something Tim Burton would dream up.

Oh hey! This looks cool! Glad you decided to join the challenge.

psumo - what is Vivi from FF9? Without knowing what that is, all I can say is that's a pretty harsh comment ... can you post an image or link?

I've got also the idea of a light rip off, but then again how original are we all? I think it looks okay and there are certainly some thing that may look like Vivi but it has it's own style and is allmost a completely different character with a big vivi hat...

I must I like the concept so far and maybe we should give him a break!

I think everyone should make out for them selfs how they think about this so I post a picture of Vivi...

Vivi from FF9 is himself a direct rip off of Orko from He-Man.

@puddlefish Lol, very true

Psumo, i think there are dozens of characters with a big pointy hat, so calling it a rip off is a bit strong, dont you think?

What the f**k!!!!

@psumo: I never saw that FF9(?)Thingy till now....
I was a bit inspired by Tim Burton. By the way, I dont
like that Fantasything so much, but i would give it a try
to see whats coming out.


But when I get such comment/crit without respecting the brainstorming of an artist, I will quit this challenge...

And by the way,... I do not really see any ripping off that char psumo showed here.
Today, ya cant hardly do something new. But I never saw this little creture from FF9(?) befor.

And befor ya(psumo) do such comments... wait till the pic is finished. I hate people, who think they have the right to be harsh
without even nowing all the other works of an artist or whats coming out in the end.:thumbsdow

So, thanks for all the other comments and cya

Tommy Lee:annoyed:

I think Viva (I also am not familiar) is more of a rip off Orco than yours off of Viva, IMO

Its the face and stature that give the dude originality, as for the clothes, they are time stylized I'd say

who knows.. I like your style to it and I wouldn't want to see you ditch it at all, the face is great and the other dude didn't even have one, so....

keep it up

edit:
I wouldn't doubt if there wasn't an intentional familiarity with these characters, to me he is yoda-ish (the cane and walk)

and the clothes while similar in cut have totally different bindings and quality, so diff, time, diff style I say

OK ... that's a completly absurd comparison. You might as well say Tommy Lee's character is a rip of Yoda because he's short, has wrinkly skin and pointed ears.

Oh wait ... if someone models a dino in the 3D challenge they're obviously ripping off Jurrasic Park. I got twisted trees in my pic so I'm obviously ripping off everyone else in this challenge who has made a twisted tree. Give me one huge break!

Keep going with it Tommy Lee ... someone here has been smokin' enchanted shrubberies.
