Fish Fry Samurai by Snigom Fish Fry Samurai by Snigom
Penciled, inked, scaned and re-drawn in ';Pixels' Then the rest is all Photoshop.

I finally had to do something fun. I liked everyone else's video game persona ID that I had to do one of myself. Inspired by Samurai Showdown...except...I have a fish....what do YOU have! :giggle:

You know...my portrait picture just screams THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!

5 is OK and there is not really a 6 but a Samurai Spirits Tenkaichi Kenkakuden it like a super Samurai Showdown with all the characters from all the games. I really want a copy too =)

I suddenly thought of a possible beat 'em up video game title: "boondogie brawler oriental"

...hmm, not quite, is it? Yah wel.. But this fighter game concept demands a title!

That's a little silly, to steer clear of something just because it's popular! What if you just happen to like it? It's like conforming to non-conforming :P

Anyway. I really like your pixel ID! It's very original :shakefish: You're very handsome!! And the background fishes look awesome :rofl:

I wish I had a good explanantion for that behavior. I suppose one could say that by capitulating to everything everyone else does, is assume the roles of a 'sheep' within a herd.

True. But you don't have to do ALL the popular things. Just the ones you want to :w00t:

Anyway, I left some compliments too! Did you read them?

EXACTLY!!!! That was my inspiration. The little whipping the sarge with little fish until he gets knocked off the pier by a BIG huge fish! YES! That was my grand source :D

Oh..the weird look on my face and the over sized muscularity made me think of the spartans :)

I admit that I had a bit of trouble with the fingers on the hand because the light is hitting them and it looks weird. I just let it go :) I did it in a hurry :D

THanks, I actually just wsh I could have worked for the video game industry!
