It's great to see these touched-up versions by one of my old heroes, and this is a true classic. Ripped by many for their scrolly/pic/muzak demo. Look forward to the MT demo and more graphics from Ste'86.

not really wanting to get into this palette thing again but does it really fcking matter what colours i display a gif in to you Oswald? AND you are viewing it on a super bright lcd display no doubt whereas i am drawing it on a crt display.

and as for the facial feature dimensions, feel free to check them anytime

palette is out of this earth. dark brown is too light, so where it meets with black it looks ugly, also 0e looks like 03.. blergh... you must have had a terrible crt.

Massive improvement, although the Karate Kid's nose looks a little on the large side.

Very nice, steve, shadowing and highlighting is much improved in the new one, also love the new texture on Daniel-san's Kimono...

Is this the titlescreen for the 2010 remake game of Karate Kid? ;-D

I like the old signature better, other than that it's a great improvement ;)

like rainbow swirls, 60's psychedelia and surreal colour schemes? nah, i think i'll pass on that thanks :)

If that is your definition of creativity - i have no further questions ;) But i can still appreciate reproductions of 80ties film posters in 2010, don't get me wrong.

oh and i did want to work a bit of red into the lips but alas colour constraints meant i would have had to lose either brown or light grey from the area to do so, and that wasnt a realistic option.

Huge improvement! I kinda miss the lipstick on the kid though. Now you´ve shown your skills, stun us with some creativity please :)

Karate Kid II

Quite nice ;-)
Did he have indeed such a nose I wonder?

Excellent. But I think we'd all like to see some new art from you STE'86 :)
User Comment
Submitted by STE'86 on 22 September 2010
it's supposed to. :)
the smoother flatter shading on Daniel is there because his skin is young and smooth whereas Miyagi's skin is far more leathery in texture.

Just to remark on something.. I think the shadowing/dithering looks a bit different on Mr Miyagi (or whatever he is called) and the "kid", in a slightly inconsistent way.
