I have taken it upon myself to draw a wicked awesome minifig to represent us. While Fryslayer's concept is nice, I think both of <i>our</i> legs are the same size, and our shadows aren't done with dodge and/or burn.

This minifig I am drawing is the embodiment of power, superiority, intelligence, and other good things. Please note that this minifig will not show humility, though it is necessary to be a good Non-Dimmy. So far I have the legs, body, and head, but I need:

6. A cool place to put the arms. No self-respecting Non-Dimmy will have his arms hanging limply at his side, so neither will our mascot.

7. A torso decal or emblem. Blank is not good.

8. That same emblem for a cape. Because no self-respecting Non-Dimmy will leave the house without his cape!

9. A face. People need faces. Blank is not an option.

10. A hat and/or hairpiece. This includes helmets. This is for the head.

11. He might want to hold something. Maybe. Blank is an option.

Colours are also nice, for the pants and torso. Yellow is not an option. His head and hands will be yellow, with NO EXCEPTION.

6. have one hand clenched in a fist and held above his head, the other should be holding something by his side.

7. A dragon or a superhero-ish "ND"

8. the cape should be green, because everyone knows green is awesome.

9. Glasses, because he is wise, and a scar on his cheek because you don't want to mess with this guy.

10. Robin Hood style to match the cape or a beret

11. a revolver or a butcher's knife.

6: the generic "i'm holding something gloriously in my right hand over my head and my other arm continues in a fluid motion to accentuate said hand" look can never be overrated.

7: as i suggested before, cap'n redbeard's torso is great. it's a torn up red shirt with torn-off badass sleeves, and a knife strapped across the chest. that just SCREAMS awesome.

8: i'd wanna say a red cape to match with the aforementioned shirt, but another option would be black or something. basically, whatever matches. you're most likely going to be doing a front or 3/4 view, so a cape decal is not important.

9: something incredibly awesome as well. scars, sunglasses, eyepatches, and that really cool head with the strand of red hair over the eye are all options.

10: awesome helmet? yes.

11: a two-handed weapon in one hand is always a nice touch. the more obnoxious and over the top, the better. i'd go with a rocket launcher in the right hand and a serrated knife in the off-hand, but i'd reverse that hand order if you have him holding something aloft, gloriously. you can't hold large items aloft without looking stupid.

Do you have a picture of that? I tried looking, but I don't know what you mean.

I have a question. As Non-Dimmies, do we stand more for ostracizing and looking down upon the subordinates with a condescending eye of superiority or for unnecessarily horrific amounts of violence, or an even equilibrium of both? If the either of the 2 latter, I propose that the minifig holds a brutally mutilated head, with the spine still attached, as if he just tore it out of some bastard Sub-Zero style.

I know it was one of those guys, not sure exactly though. I'm pretty sure it was the blue one.

I thought about trying to draw something, but I'm certain it would end in failure of some kind. Anyway, on topic: If one were to be holding a spine, I would think

would be the best part to get the idea across. Perhaps a skull on the ground nearby along with a few tiny teeth. And the offhand would have to be a spoon or screwdriver or something, because it would hurt more.

Too late, I'm already done. Any suggestions for a helmet/hair?

EDIT: Oh yeah.

check the hero stat card for an awesome helmet. but the shirt is so plain!

also, no offense, but the pose is rather... boring. maybe it's the front view or lack of action, but he's just kindof sitting there... like something made of plastic.

i'd suggest a 3/4 perspective, with one foot standing on top of something like a rock. rocks kick ass.

That looks good, but it needs more pizazz. I think IV Horesman's idea about having his foot on something would be good, maybe a big red button that says "DO NOT PUSH".

Or how about take the skull out of under his arms and place it under his feet?

Carnevil, that makes an awesome spine! I agree with IV's idea to place a rock under his feet.
