LOL!  :P
It's grammatically correct even, though a slightly weird way to put it. I'd personally say something along the lines of:

Dank u zeer... ik zal er een blik op werpen wanneer ik de kans krijg.

"Polycount" is a 3d game art community.  :lol:

Maybe you'll find it interesting:

I agree with goat. I'd tone down on the uniform blotchiness. Also, the sides of the panel are pretty blurry.

Your latest version <----> My quick edit

In the mean time you can see a small selection of my 3d stuff here:

No downloads though... but hey, who plays Quake 3 anymore, anyway?   :-[

I rarely join fads, but I finally caved to the current one. I haven't been around here long enough to remember any others, unless you count "style bandwagons" like the random dither style, and the "Only-Use-Teal-Gray-Bronze-Slate-Purple" trend.

I like your "doll" theory, Peppermint Pig, hehe.  :D

Tisha and Schu haven't voted yet apparantly.

Also Wayuki.

Actually, I both voted and replied to the thread earlier.  :-X

Helm took the words right out of my mouth. :y:

Better than whom?

Than the average person in the non-dolling pixel community.

Quake in your boots! I'm a DOLLERRRR!  :-X

There are different groups of people within the dolling community. Some of them are actually serious pixel artists. They use proper pixel techniques, they make their own bases to doll on, or they make "baseless dolls" (IE scratch-made pixel characters). Most of them are also competent artists in other areas. Occasionally they will use another doller's base to doll on, often as a gift to said doller. And there's nothing wrong with that, as long as it's very clear who made what. Really, it's not that different from coloring someone else's line-art.

Within the dolling community, "simple edits" are also very much frowned upon. A doll is only considered good if it's severely (and competently) edited from it's base.

Unfortunately there's also a group of dollers that ONLY uses other people's bases and pre-made props, because they can't draw them on their own. They fool themselves into believing that they are artists by leaching off the work of someone else. The fact that there are bases for everyone to use, has attracted a lot of annoying little kiddies and uncreative people. Some of the more serious dollers are turned off by this, so they move on to the "general" pixel art community.

Usually though, they also keep posting in the doll forums, and by doing so they expose the less serious dollers to better pixel techniques (who do actually pick up on it eventually). As a result, the average skill level in the dolling community has increased significantly over the years.

If I have to be honest, I think the average doller is better at shading hair and elaborate cloth folds. I guess that's because "pretty hair" and "pretty clothes" are big themes in the dolling world. Overall though, the skill level is a lot lower in the dolling community. Still, the bright colors and cute themes appeal to the little girl in me.

I hope to incorporate the best of both worlds in my work.  ;D

Pixel Art / Re: Eureka

I hope a woman artist on the boards does an edit, mainly because they know how to draw women better than I can if nothing else.

Somebody called?   ;D

When standing relaxed, most women shift their entire weight to one leg. In this case, that would be her right leg (our left). So, I think that leg should be moved so that it's straight below the body. Frychiko's leg pose looks good too, but not with this upper body. She seems to be leaning to the front too much.

If you have all of your weight on one leg, the hips tilt a LOT, and the shoulders should tilt the other way to match. And when you tilt the shoulders one way, you should tilt the head the other way, otherwise the neck looks detached somehow.

When I looked up the character, I was surprised to see that the blue patches on her shoulder are actually shoulder straps. So, they should be a lot less wide and have some sort of shadow underneath them. I also think you need to give a lot more shape to the dress to show her figure underneath. The sleeves should curve more at the bottom, too.

Lastly, I would try to bring more depth to the hair and eyes, since elaborate hair and overly shiny eyes are a big thing in anime. I take it that you were going for a stern expression rather than pouty, so I would make the mouth more subtle and change the eyebows to look angrier.

Anyway, an edit says more than words, so here's my attempt.

Yours ----> Helm's ----> Mine
