Chopplo!

Post by BlueGasMask »

This is a chopplo. He is cute. He is 5 meters tall. He likes to eat trees. He is the 3rd dumbest creature in the universe. He can carry you around in his mouth. I made him when I was bored in maths.

Why is a chopplo the 3rd dumbest creature in the universe? if you make yourself out to be a friend, you must be an enemy, therefore, you must be a tree. If you make yourself out to be an enemy, you must be a friend, and he will help transport you.

Haha, nice. I voted 'Yes'. Is this for a mod, by the way? (Just thought because it's done in sprite style.)

Maybe, I'm starting to think about getting everyone together tomake a fan-made 7-9. I don't think that it'd actually happen though, it'd take years to do. But I am open to it being used as part of a mod. Infact, I'm going to go reproduce the sideview, but that was hard to draw on paper alone. Meh. :yorp

Rofl! That is exactly the sort of genius character design that would make a game truly worthy of the TUIT title! Well done. Get bored in maths more.

So I assume you need to shoot him or something in order for him to transport you, and if you walk up to him you'll be eaten?

Vote: Definiteley yes (since there's not a Definitely yes :p)

I don't know how well a community fan-game would work (it's hard enough keeping the community mod alive at K:M, though it is admittedly a smaller group) but it could be worth a shot if you're able to keep it organised.

Well imko It's not enough keenish. Maybe you should work more on the teeth part, as well as on the shadows. And those eyes are... strange to say the least.

Interesting rendering, Allstories. Yet now it looks too... overly-realistic... oldschool-cartoony (Mad Magaziney?) somehow, which doesn't suit. Mostly the mouth, though--the rest looks pretty damn good.

It needs white eyes or something with that kind of detail, I think. It looks reeeeally unKeenish with those beady eyes now.

To me it looks like Pokemon. It doesn't feel Keenish to me at all.
Aaaah, not the bees!

To me it doesn't look like Pokémon at all. And I have played those games quite a bit. :confused

I do think it's a weird creature that could use some better shading and definitely some different (googly!) eyes. Allstories is overdoing it a bit with the shading, but the teeth in his version looks better too. :)

If anything, Chopplo reminds me of Mr. Strong.
