Perhaps you can draw yourself in a less boring position?  We have enough white male characters who are just standing there.

Although most of them have better haircuts.

Nice! I love the style.

I'd recommend drawing larger than that though and shrinking it down - that just removes the pixellation on the hard lines and smoothes them out a little. Just make sure to keep them fairly jagged and uneven in places, that's what makes this for me :)

Thanks. Seeming Your comment came up after I did another drawing I've used not_Scyess' advice first, here is a different pose:

Dude, these are odd enough to be worthwhile.

More poses, though! I'm dying still to have someone reading a book or newspaper.

And some reactions (shocked, laughing, ****ed, bug-eyed green-skinned with cheeks full of vomit) are in order, most of our characters exhibit a limited range of emotion.

 Thanks for the ideas ArtemisStrong

I'll go with the one in bold first, seeming it looks like a challenge, and I like challenges:

 

Ok, maybe it didn't work out very well, but at least I had the initiative to try......

Even if I can do this sort of stuff, I still can't seem to shrink it to the size it has to be for me to submit it to Brad. I tried what Injokester said and it did the same thing, it just goes pixal on me. And when I save it as a GIF it loses some of the colour data and therefore it goes all line like. Any help?

What program are you using? If it's paint that'll be the problem, it isn't capable of resizing or saving as gif without totally destroying your work...

I'd recommend using photoshop, even if you don't want to buy it you can download the trial version from adobe's site. You can probably dig up a keygen if you don't mind pirating. I included everything DexX taught me about getting images ready for SC in my paint tutorial.

The other way you might consider is to download Irfanview, which is about 3MB and free. The best way there is to resize your image first and save it as a .png file, then do the edge outline manually in paint, open up in Irfanview again and save as a gif. There's an option when saving to choose the transparent colour, just make sure everything outside the character is the same colour and choose that (fill it with bright pink or something you didn't use anywhere on the character).

Actually, scratch that last bit, I updated my paint topic with proper instructions on how to format characters for SC using Irfanview, check the last post here.

I used your first character as the example :)

Not a criticism, just an observation:  barfing guy should probably have his mouth close, lips pursed, no teeth showing.  As a guy who reads alot of not_Scyess'  comics, I know alot about trying to hold in a puke (kidding, kidding). 

Also, a larger version just showing him from the waist up might be cool (more impact, like he's about to chuck on the reader).

Thanks for the tips on the barfing techniques. I felt most of the drawing was a bit messed up. But I have no idea where teeth come into the drawing. I never had teeth showing.

Well, the lips look like teeth. You should make the lips a simple straight line to avoid confusion.

Or, well, not exactly a straight line. but you get my drift.

 

And if you don't get my drift, I mean like this:

See, the mouth is indicated by a simple curved line. Do that with your puke mouth, and it will be fine. I wouldn't change anything else, though. It's perfectly weird enough as is.

I have absolutely no idea what happened with the finished version because there were green dots around it (either it actually happened or I'm going insane again):

 

 

Oh that's fantastic! Now it won't even show! somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

there you go beeko. I like this alot! just center the image a bit more so that his left hand and the skull are a little bit more to the left!

Maybe i'll give this a try. Too bad I don't have a drawing tablet :( and even if i did I have no guarantees that it would work with linux...
