Giant Bomb Crew in faux 16-bit

I just got the sudden urge to try some pixel art of the GB crew and this is what I came up with.

I think I'm happiest with the way brad and vinnie came out. Jeff was prolly the hardest to make somewhat recognizable while patrick maybe the easiest due to his fro. Ryan, was a bitch to make and I'm still not happy with, but the more I tinker, the worse it seems to get -_-;; I'm missing a few key folks but thems the breaks. Like with anything that has to do with making something, I could prolly tinker with this thing forever but touching it up here and there over the past few days whenever I felt the urge, I think it's gotten to a point where I can put it aside and consider it done =D Though, now that I have them sprites, maybe next time I feel like doing something stupid like this again, I'll use em and make some kind of like, pixel art fake cards or something =P

Here is the sort of the process I went through in putting this horrific pixelated mess together. Btw, don't click on anything that looks like a link. That's just me not being able to manhandle the damn blog picture entries to work the way I want them to =\

Started with Jeff and Ryan because why the hell not?
They're both looking pretty damn rough
For Patrick, immediately thought of that crazy ass video he's in. For the most part,
his rough was closest to the final.

next comes Vinnie. I'm missing feet on all these because all my references were from like, the waist up =\

Added Mr Shoemaker, who is also very close to final on first pass. Along the way, kept messing w/Jeff's face because something about it just didn't seem right.

Threw in the Logo + more minor tweaks

More details to the bg green screen.

Added some more background elements and began adjusting heights some after getting feedback.

Added the wall on the left, and further edits and minor details.

By the will of Claude the great!
