Pac-Man and Pac-Man by JamesmanTheRegenold Pac-Man and Pac-Man by JamesmanTheRegenold
A random sketch from my sketchbook that evolved into a nice little doodle. :3

Pac-Man, good god what can I say about him that I haven't said before? xP

Well, I'm sure a lot of people still prefer the Older, Boot-Wearin', Fingerless Pac-Man over the Newer, Fingered, and Sneaker-Wearin' Pac-Man with Blue Eyes (which thankfully are still shaped like Pac-Man himself).

For me though . . . . I can honestly say I'm starting to lean more to the New Pac-Man's design, even though I love the old design to death. I think it's mainly because, unlike Sonic, the New Pac-Man still looks very faithful to the old one, despite the few changes.

Not much else to say but, enjoy. :)

The new Pac Man design doesn't have fingers :/ that's only the show pac man. You guys get new design mix with show design.

actually that's the funny thing, the new show aside Namco's been pretty inconsistent with the new Pac-Man design. Some of the games he appeared in has him with the usual gloves, while other games give him fingers.

I like both styles, the Original for the nostalgia of playing Pac-Man World 2 and the new style for me watching the new animated series Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Personally, I like both designs.  The classic design of Pac-Man will always be memorable and nostalgic and my favorite.  The new design has it's own take on Pac-Man but it still resembles to the old, classic design.  :)

that's really more or less how I see it too. I mean sure the new Pac-Man is a bit odd to look at initially, but really he wasn't really changed that drastically compared to other characters like Sonic. I mean I know several will argue he's treated more like a kid here but, honestly it's not like the Classic Pac-Man couldn't be treated like that either (provided they don't use those American-Made characters like Ms. Pac-Man).

I like the new design, but the old Pac-Man World has a very, very big place in my heart.
It's also nice to see that someone gives Pac-Man some love.

sorry but I get real antsy when people refer to the Classic Pac-Man design as the "Pac-Man World" Design. xD;;

:iconultimatehammerbro:
UltimateHammerBro Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014
I understand. It's just that Pac-Man World is really important to me.
However, I associate this design with that game. Did it appear somewhere else before it? I'm not counting the art in the arcade machine or the Hanna-Barbera cartoon/Pac-Land, since it had its differences.

JamesmanTheRegenold Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
well for nostalgia's sake I can completely understand that.

and personally I do count artwork from previous games because, when you get right down to it, arcade machines back then weren't powerful enough to convey such a full-image (the Japanese version of Pac-Land was damn close though). So the design's been there since forever, but you are right that it wasn't until Pac-Man World where his whole image was replicated in it's entirety for a playable Pac-Man.

I just fucking hate it when people think that "Pizza Pac-Man" is the one true original Pac-Man, cuz that's not entirely true. There's a huge difference between in-game graphics and concepts made during the development of said game.

I understand. I didn't explain myself well enough: I count artwork too, but IMO the artwork in the arcade was very different from this design (the face was too small in relation to the body).
The only design I really hate is that weird picture of a round, amorphous Pac-Man with no arms and red eyes which supposedly represented the Pizza Pac-Man and appeared in some editions of the machine.

idk that I think is being a bit too nitpicky. I mean the idea behind the design was there, it's just that it'd end up looking more refined as years passed.

and yeah that version of Pac-Man is kinda fugly xD

Well I really don't like it because it doesn't feel like a Pac-Man animated series or Pac-Man game if counting the video game that's based off it. But you are not the only one who actually likes it. There are a lot of fan art and some fan clubs about that cartoon.

In SSB for 3DS/Wii U, Classic Pac-Man is present. Maybe the Modern Pac might show up as an Alt Costume.

given all the alt costumes announced so far, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they did that (and honestly I wouldn't mind that at all cuz I do actually like the new look).

Pac-man's design change is about 15% more of a change than Kirby's or 10%  Sonic's design change(taller, new shoes, grown out quills, and Green eyes.)the only major difference with Sonic's being he's not that adorable design wise anymore.

This is one nerd's opinion, but I think you're being a little unfair to Next-Gen Sonic. While yes, he's taller and slender compared to his 90s counterpart AND he's Rule 34 fodder, but think of this: He has the personality of all variations of him from the cartoons from that era. Like AoStH Sonic, he's dealing with the security of the world, like SatAM Sonic, he's brash yet compassionate and gets his job done and like Underground Sonic...Well...Let's just say that the first two cover him...Anyway, he's got a Jones for speed, likes chili dogs and lacks the ability to swim. How is none of THAT being true to the original?

I think you kinda misunderstood my point. I was only referring to his physical appearance, that it was a bit of a far-cry from the original. Personality wise, yes he is very much akin to the Classic Sonic.

I never said anything about his actual character, just his appearance. and that's all I'll really say ~
