Blog #3 - Godot Illustration... and Death

So... this month sucks.
 
Following on from my previous blog, this has been a bad month. My best friend, one of the most important people in my life died 3 weeks ago. It's been tough, and I don't expect it to get any easier in the coming weeks but I'm trying. He went peacefully and had a good funeral. I won't go in to details. It's been hard signing on to Steam and Xbox Live and seeing his profile. We had just completed Left 4 Dead 2, going to wait a little bit to buy Left 4 Dead 1 and play through that as well as the Chaos Rising expansion for Dawn of War 2. He waited to buy it until I could afford it. It's silly that we put it off... but then again we can't have lived expecting this to happen. He also had an unopened copy of Red Alert 3 that we bought together so we could play co-op, but never did.
 
To keep myself occupied I've continued my theme of opening up Photoshop and messing around. This time I did an illustration of my favourite Phoenix Wright character Godot (well... it's hard to chose) . I think I did much better this time, considering illustration isn't my thing at all. I put a lot more detail in to it and thought about the background and colours more. I'd like to hear some responses, and suggestions for who I should do next (I'm thinking of doing these all summer on and off).

Why do I feel like that should be some type of 1984-esque propaganda poster :P?

Waiting for Godot was a horrible book.

@Video_Game_King:  because Godot's coffee is what 1984 is really all about.

George Orwell was a huge fan of point and click adventure games.

That looks awesome. Sorry to hear about your friend

My favorite character was Edgeworth. I still haven't finished Trials and Tibulations though, and I have the Edgeworth spinoff lying around for when I do finish it. 
 
That Godot is really nice. If you have the time, could you do one of Miles? maybe have him give a wry smile towards the audience? Fingerpointing is also welcome :)

If you make posters of it I'll buy one from you.

@RockmanBionics:  I'd love to do one of Edgeworth. I'll try and send you a PM when I get round to doing it.
The third game is my favourite just because you get to play as several characters and across different time periods. Would recommend that you finish it. Having completed the Miles Edgeworth spin-off game however, I can't say I recommend it. Nothing wrong with Edgeworth, he can easily carry a game on his own but the tone and gameplay are really not what I want from an Ace Attorney game.
Apollo Justice however is an incredible addition to the series but set after Phoenix's career.

@NikoAlexander57: Thanks. Well, it is designed like a poster. I'd love to make posters for a living.
