All of the gifts were spectacular! I enjoyed "opening" all of them. XD

I will definitely participate next year!

Taka - I agree with you about the music. I really enjoyed the movie but felt that the awesomeness was incomplete because of the so-so music. They spent soooo much money on that movie but obviously, not a lot of it went to the music department.

With the dark forest, the perspective is just awesome. I'm kind of confused about the relationship between the clouds and the forest. A dead forest wouldn't be completely black so how 'bout letting some of the light purple go through the forest just a little bit? That way, there's more connection between the forest and everything else.

If you honestly like the forest with the landscape, find some way to connect the different elements.

The graphic designer me died as well, Ben. It's a smiley for goodness sakes! How is that unique?

Done...for now...maybe.  :lol:

I have to thank all of you who gave suggestions and posted edits. I really appreciate it! I've learned a lot about color usage with this piece.

Wow, Eyecraft, what a wonderful edit! Man oh man, I wish I had seen this before I submitted. Seeing your edit opened up possibilities. Thankfully, the deadline is in pacific time so I'll take this opportunity to make changes. Thanks so much!

Update! Thanks Tourist & CrazyMLC for the suggestions.

Here's my take:

I loved the fullness of the girls hair in Crazy's edit but took Tourist's advice about incorporating the flourishes from the right side. I also love the addition of the hips. I edited the background a little but I may revert to the original. I do like the flourishes coming from the hand.

Thanks for the comments JJ Naas & llolige.

TheOne - Excellent edits! She looks a lot slimmer. I like the addition of a darker purple along with the original palette. Thanks so much!

I'm not quite sure what to do with the background. I think I should add some dithering but it may make the background too busy. It couldn't hurt to try. I've still get plenty of time.

No crits? Oh well! I'll keep posting updates regardless:

Decided to try a new palette and add simple shading. Not quite sure if I like what I did with the background, though.

Hello everyone!

Boy, it's been awhile since I posted a pixels for critique (there weren't much to begin with). I recently picked up pixel art again because it's just so cool and I want to do it for sure - for fun!  :D

What better way than to take part in a challenge - the 8 Color Music challenge to be exact. The theme of this piece is belly dance music. I love it and belly dancing itself. When I'm not walking, I'm belly dancing.  :P

So, here's a rough draft. The lines in the background need to be cleaned up:

Reference for the pose: Shadow Dance by Matt Abraxas

I'd really like tips on color. That's one of the elements I struggle with in pixel art. However, any insight is very much appreciated!
