Now, It's Cartoon Review Alex!

#1 Posted by papercut (3800 posts) -

Because Cartoon Review Patrick was received so well and because people thought I should, here's the Alex 5 star scale I made up.

Once again, here they are individually.

Alex-1

Alex-2

Alex-3

Alex-4

Alex-5

And once again what do you guys think?

#2 Posted by WMWA (1219 posts) -

why are you so good at this? This is amazing. I bet the crew will start using these once you have a set for all of them.

#3 Posted by SmilingPig (1370 posts) -

Once again, great work.

#4 Posted by Sweep (9701 posts) -

I like them, though 3 stars Alex's mouth looks slightly strange. Maybe the line is too thick?

#5 Posted by WMWA (1219 posts) -

Yeah, number 3 needs a bit of retooling. I imagine the neutral ones are the hardest to get right

#6 Posted by pyromagnestir (4384 posts) -

5 star Alex get's 10 stars. No, wait, 20. 100! All the stars!

The rest are cool too

#7 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11972 posts) -

I think these are very good.

#8 Posted by Tylea002 (2382 posts) -

Amazing.

It would be a crime for them to remove them from reviews, seeing as you're now picking up the slack of making awesome new cartoons. Full approval here.

#9 Posted by jjnen (680 posts) -

Simply amazing. I wish GB continues to use their cartoon pictures with the review score even though there have been talks about getting rid off them.

#10 Posted by Milkman (17902 posts) -

Once again, awesome.

#13 Posted by Alex (3091 posts) -

I am quite fond of the things you have done here.

Awesome, I love the zombie 1 star.

#15 Posted by JeanLuc (3795 posts) -

@papercut: I was hoping for this pose to end up being used.

Oh well, still awesome job duder.

#16 Posted by papercut (3800 posts) -

@Alex: All in a days work fair citizen

#17 Posted by Megasoum (382 posts) -

They are amazing!

Really sucks that they are activly working on getting rid of the cartoon review portraits on the new site.

#18 Posted by Animasta (14820 posts) -

I feel like 4 star alex wants to sell me cocaine or something

#19 Posted by Damian (1521 posts) -

Excellent! I hear that party-favour 'honk' every time I look at #5.

#20 Posted by Levius (1311 posts) -

So, this is a thing.

Great work, though for some reason I can't not see a moustache on two stars.

#21 Posted by Euphorio (89 posts) -

I feel like 1 star Alex should be more sad...1 star games are far more depressing than just bein a zombie...it should really be like a zombie with one eye...or tears

#22 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Quite amazing, but the 5-star is a thing of beauty.

@Rappelsiini: who has said this? is this like the Brad's leaving thing? am i getting trolled? in my own town?

#24 Posted by Nottle (1931 posts) -
This should be 3 star Alex. Just enough excitment and meh in it to be 3 stars.
#25 Posted by katanalauncher (224 posts) -

You only need the four star one.

#26 Posted by NegativeCero (3090 posts) -

@Nottle: God, that picture really should have been included. God job nonetheless. I'm hoping for you to show Dave some love the next time around.

100% serious, unless I've been trolled as well. I think Jeff said it somewhere, I'm not sure and can't bother to find source to support my claim.

I've heard Jeff say this a few times. The last time was on Dave's radio show. They're looking at discontinuing them with the site redesign. Maybe they'll change their mind though. You never know. The community seems to like them.

Yeah Jeff (and probably other) said it multiple time that they want to take them out so I'm sure it won't be in the redesign. It's a shame if you ask me, added a bit of personality in the reviews.

These are great, but I think one of those should look like Nicolas Cage...I don't know if it should be 5 star Alex/Cage of 1 star Alex/Cage

I like that idea too but Brads already throwing up the horns in his 5 star. They'd have to battle for it.
These are super awesome.
#32 Posted by Tennmuerti (8352 posts) -

Your Alex is really fucking creepy.

So spot on i guess!

#33 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3687 posts) -

So awesome.

#34 Posted by iAmJohn (6151 posts) -

You are way too good at this, dude. Seriously, if the team can see these and the ones you made for Patrick and still want to do away with them entirely, they're monsters. MONSTERS, I TELL YOU.

#35 Posted by Begilerath (178 posts) -

May I suggest this image for the 1-star Alex

#36 Posted by Crixaliz (808 posts) -

These and the Patrick ones are amazing!

You are quite talented at this

#37 Posted by supamon (1339 posts) -

I'm glad this is a thing.

#38 Posted by Phatmac (5919 posts) -

Great job! It's about time that Alex got some cartoon love too!

#39 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3687 posts) -

@papercut: did a little mock up awesome job.

sadzombie.com is a different website.

Four start Alex scares me.

#42 Posted by Brendan (8756 posts) -

5 star Alex is my favourite!

Thats too much like the Brad five star cartoon.

#44 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

Love 'em just like the Patrick ones

#45 Posted by Gabriel (4129 posts) -

The one star should be him getting run over by a truck.

#46 Posted by DemBones (73 posts) -

Nicely done. You should make them for Luchadeer and Cool Baby.

Well considering that they're planning on removing the cartoon characters in the site redesign...

@wmaustin55: @Sweep: 3 star Alex looks like John Drake.
