For maximum effect, listen to this while observing :)

For the first time ever... Brick Spade in COLOUR!

"movie" stills



Inspiration
When the contest theme was announced my mind instantly went to old movies, and from old movies to film noir.
Even if you don't know much about the genre it is likely that the tropes are familiar to you....
The rainy city, random jazz music and narration, the femme fatale, the mobsters and crooked cops and of course...
the detective.

This skin is designed to be a pastiche of the typical noir sleuth.
Even his name is a reference, "Philip" as in Philip Marlowe from "The Big Sleep", and "Spade" as in Sam Spade from "The Maltese Falcon" (one of my favourite films).

uhhh and "Brick" because he's a minecraft character, duh.

I also tried to create a chiaroscuro effect with the shading since that’s another noir convention. Hopefully it turned out ok.

hope you enjoy. please dia + subscribe

same here. I used to watch a lot of film noir, hence the skin. But anything mystery related is cool imo

Dear lord I love the shading, give him a Good cop and Bad cop look at the same time! (If that makes any since :p)

glad you like it. I don't normally do asymmetrical shading so it was certainly a learning experience

Woah, pretty nice skin! I don't know who he is though, from what i've read in your description, like a guy from the 1930's. Anyways, I'm also gonna do a skin, so good luck!

yeah he's not a specific character, I just tried to make the most generic film noir detective... So he's kinda a bunch of characters combined.
