Been a while since my last upload.
Anyways, here's the 5th Darwinist in the group, the Japanese Kappa!
I was listening to this while coloring and shading the sprites: [link]
Based off of this excellent ilustration: [link]
When I first saw that picture, my first thought were, "Wow, those beasties look pretty bad***, don't they?" My second thought was "Woah, look at that top one bite that German in half!" Then I decided that these beasties would be a great addition to my Gaming Clanker pixel series! Once again, I had to pixelate fur (or are those scales?), and once again I had to do multiple attempts (four, to be exact!) before getting it right. I think it was worth it.
Also, I definitely think my pixel art skills are improving!
