This is fantastic! That's Coming from someone who has drawn dozens of personified bombs. This could make a great t-shirt. Welcome to the forums.

I love it. It's really awesome.

(also, I edited your thread title because thread titles in all caps are annoying, but no biggie).

@jollygraygiant: Thanks, doodling on Miiverse is a great distraction while consuming Giantbomb content. Your gladiator drawing is really rad too.

That's pretty great.

But he's not what I think of as hip. He's not wearing sunglasses, skateboarding, or vaping.

@hippie_genocide: I wanted to give it a little goofy touch to the design. Something I figured would be silly and fun :)

@jollygraygiant: It was a joke from a recent Bombcast. Someone wrote in asking why the logo had a gap in its teeth. It doesn't. Yours doesn't either so I'm confused by your response. The teeth stop but I wouldn't call that a gap, per se. Teeth gotta end somewhere. That's a cardinal rule of nature - teeth gotta end somewhere.

Wasn't the gap in the teeth regarding the artwork for the Bombcast?

It looks like a girl bomb to me, and I think of the GB logo more as a dude. Nice first post though, welcome :D

@mrmathias: yeah with a bit of a touch up, a motto and a store page this would be a pretty cool t-shirt.

Let's hope the duders see this ;)

Looks like the kind of character that you'd see at the start of an educational film. Love it.

@dedbeet: Or something like that video in Jurassic Park where the cartoon DNA explains how they make the dinosaurs.

Love how it looks slightly drunk, feels fitting for Giant Bomb somehow.

Great work!
