Commander Keen by JacobPease Commander Keen by JacobPease
This is Commander Keen, the title character of a series of games back in the early 90's. It was the first EGA sidescroller on the computer. You can read more about it at wikipedia: [link]

I remember playing this as a kid and it became one of my favorites because of the whole idea of a kid flying through space and stuff.

I want to put him in a background but I'm not sure where I want him to be. I thought maybe an alien like city, but then I thought it would be closer to the them of the game if I put him out on some barren gray planet.

Wherever I put him it must be in an environment with blue ambient light at night, because that's how he's colored. Otherwise I would have to change the colors around completely.

Comments? =D

This style works great for Keen! I love it. Wish the rights weren't all tied up so they could make some DS / PSP / iPhone Keen games. If they did, I would love to see him looking like this.

id Software still owns the rights to Commander Keen. It's possible they can make a reboot as soon as they're done with Rage.
