Marvel Graphghan Square #4 – The Incredible Hulk
This minimalist Hulk pattern I've made up is a little more cute than incredible. He doesn't look quite as fearsome as I was going for, but it's hard to work with only 20x20 pixels! I tried to stick as close as I possibly could to the traditional feel of the Hulk. Angry face. Black hair. … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #4 – The Incredible Hulk
