Here is the Patrick 5 star scale, or at least the one I made up.

Here they are individually if you want to do something with them. You know, like those not quite animated Bombcast clips we used to watch.

Patrick-1

Patrick-2

Patrick-3

Patrick-4

Patrick-5

So...What do you think?

EDIT:

fixed 3 star

Awesome job.
5-star Patrick looks like he's about to travel through time and/or into a space ship.

Brad's gonna be pissed about that last one. Only Brad can be that awesome.

Good stuff. Some comments:

3 start Patrick is a tad on the negative side, just a tiny bit more neutral would be more apropriate imo, that frown maybe?

Hairless Patrick is freaking me OUT.

#6 Posted by IAmNotBatman (645 posts) -

You know that they're planning on getting rid of the cartoon review pictures altogether right?

#7 Posted by Animasta (14692 posts) -

I love it, except for 3 which should be more neutral

I agree with this. If not the frown, maybe make the eyebrows / \ instead of \ /. If you know what I mean?

Other than that, really awesome. I love 5-Star and 4-Star Patrick, especially. Great job!

Wow, these look great.

#11 Posted by DBagalot (159 posts) -

#12 Posted by wumbo3000 (971 posts) -

The 5 star one is spot on.

He probably knows, but I think it's a terrible idea, at least.

lol Krusty the Clown

#15 Posted by iAmJohn (6120 posts) -

Those are great!

#16 Posted by papercut (3500 posts) -

Fixed

#17 Posted by bushpusherr (787 posts) -

@The_Nubster: I agree here, I think tilting the eyebrows upward would make him look a bit more optimistic lol. Other than that, they look amazing, I really hope they use these!!

#18 Posted by Jeust (10654 posts) -

In the five star Patrick you should show all the fingers in each hand.

Appart from that it is awesome!

#19 Posted by fox01313 (5073 posts) -

Looks great.

#20 Posted by NegativeCero (3003 posts) -

These are really good. I like how the cartoons make it clear that he is very skinny.

#21 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I am going to be so, so sad when they get rid of review score art :(

These are pretty awesome, they should use them.

#22 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

Nice work, duder.

#23 Posted by papercut (3500 posts) -

Gonna be totally honest. Didn't know they were getting rid of the art. When did this happen?

#24 Posted by Sarkahn (48 posts) -

Very cool, five-star Patrick is amaaazing! Nicely done.

They mentioned it in one of the Whiskey Media Radio shows. The reason being that the art doesn't necessarily reflect the content of the review. The example they gave is Jeff's 3 star art, which screams "Meh". Whereas 3 stars is usually meant to represent a decent game. Something along those lines.

This is fantastic.

#26 Posted by Irvandus (2879 posts) -

Someone make this official.

Well poop :P

#28 Posted by Zelnox (389 posts) -

This is cool, but I think 5-stars Patrick should be Rayman-Patrick from the Game of the Year stuff.

#29 Posted by Undeadpool (4943 posts) -

LOVE it! These are close to the quality of the official ones! (And I'm not saying that to be reductive, I'm saying that cause the originals are damn near impossible to top).

#30 Posted by Commisar123 (1793 posts) -

Nice

#31 Posted by JeanLuc (3585 posts) -

Genius. Well done sir.

#32 Posted by mpgeist (609 posts) -

Really? Why would they ever do such a thing?

They look great! Nice work =)

@papercut: nicely done!

#40 Posted by JackSukeru (5913 posts) -

I think the reasons for getting rid of the review pictures seem resonable.

I still want the review pictures.

I think instead they should just make the 3 star pictures more positive. Maybe change the current 3 star ones to be the 2 star ones, and do the 3 star ones over.

Good pictures dude. But yeah. I'd suggest making the 3 star ones even more positive. Maybe give him a slight smile.

Great job! Too bad the GB guys seem hell bent on phasing out all of the review pictures at some point.

#43 Edited by PenguinDust (12522 posts) -

I think we have GBs new scale. For example, "I give it three out of five Patricks"

#44 Posted by Vitor (2821 posts) -

Love it. Hope these get used.

Now you just have to make some for Alex...

If this is the case then fuckin redo the art, don't get rid of it, it's just one step towards gamespot which is the last thing I would want

#46 Posted by Levius (1140 posts) -

Nice job, I really like the four stars picture.

#47 Posted by obcdexter (602 posts) -

I think they should start to rate games in Michael Jackson songs already. Like, "this game is Thriller!" or "this game is Earth Song!" - much easier to distinguish than stars and comic expressions, if you ask me.

Seriously, though: These are great an on par with the stuff they're using right now. Also, it's news to me they want to get rid of these images in the future. I mean, it just seems such a non-issue and overall irrelevant to me I find it hard to think of any kind of reason for that. Who the hell would be bothered by those little comics? Keep them, they are an eye-candy if nothing else and fittingly crazy in a cute way.

#48 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Aw snap! All these are great, but I dig one-star Patrick the most.

#49 Posted by Heimdal (58 posts) -

Even if they are getting rid of the art, I feel like you should know I, Internet person, think these are awesome!

#50 Posted by MikeFightNight (1110 posts) -

Awesome job dude! Are they really getting rid of the cartoon review pics? That's a shame, they add a lot of character to the site and have always felt like a staple for me. On a side note, i think it would be hilarious to see an over the top anime style take on the current ones. Like that one episode of Futurama where they try out a few different animation styles.
