General Discussion / Re: The Official Pixelation Off-Topic Thread

What'd everyone get for Christmas? Two highlights for me: iMac G5 and Adobe Illustrator.

Lucky you...I've been asking for a new computer since last year and my iBook is now five years old :(

This must have been the worst Christmas highlight is a Slipknot t-shirt...and enough money to buy a Wacom Graphire4 Classic XL. Now I just got to travel 200km to reach the nearest shop in Portugal that sells it, cause my parents don't let my buy it on the internet (mostly because the price will increase a lot with shipping and stuff...).

Hopefully you guys had a better x-mas :-\

Well, I intended to do some more, and I might do some more later (although x-mas will have passed already), but, due to personal reasons, which, in fact, don't directly involve me, I was only able to do one...and a crappy one :-[

Anyway, here goes, to HELM:

And I tried a version with evil dude sneaking out...but I failed greatly:

Merry X-mas to everybody here on Pixelopolis!

I liked the one with the green aura a lot more, probably cause theres more contrast.

On the new one, maybe you should change the hair's colour, I dont realy like blue-brown combination (but, hey, thats just me), and add some more details to the clothing. Also it might look better with the mouth reduced one pixel :)

MUCH better ;D

Ref pic with be good for comparing. Right now I only find weird the huge highlights...with such a dark background I would assume the lights were weaker.
Great definition of shapes, with only 3 colours! If you could improve dithering it would surely become better ;) Great job so far!

Thanks for all the feedback guys, it was defenitly good for me to have all these critiques.

I hope I was able to improve something...I just 'undefined' some stuff you pointed (I followed blick's edit alot on this), added another, maybe useless, highlight tone, tried to fix the lips and anti-aliased some of the hair's borders...
Also, I tried to put some lame stuff on the background (dither on the upper corners). Should I keep that?...

Camus: I know waht you mean about the eyes, I've noticed that a long time ago. I just can't fix them...

GS: Brightened her theet ;D

Blick: Thanks! Your edit sure helped me improving the piece, although I preferred not to give the eyes as very strong highlight, as did...I know what you mean about the lips, it was realy hard to make them 'curve it in a little on the sides'...

Helm: Yes, it's been realy hard to pixel this in way to keep the likeness...and it became even harder due to the angle in which she's tilting (does this word exist?) the head to...

Next step I'll be taking is to TRY to make some highlights on the hair...If anyone knows anything that can help on making that I'd be grateful ;) Any critiques on what I've done until now are also welcome!

Oh well, this is, like Skipper's topic "Beauty", kind of personal. This is a gift for a very special friend of mine (I do not, in this moment, wish more than friendship with her), Katarina, whose birthday is on the 22nd (or 23rd, I'm not sure) of December. I've been dedicating most of my time and effort to it, in this past week, because I want it to be as perfect as my technique and knowledge allow me to.

Now, let me explain some points of the picture. It's a portrait of her made from this referenc pic.
The reason for the yellowish tones is the fact that she is a wonderfully happy person, and I wanted to pass that feeling by giving her a sunny, bright look. I hope I was able to show that...

My major problem now is the hair. I was hoping someone could help me with this, because I realy don't know how to do it...
