Thank you! You're exactly right on my method, and I'll be interested to try yours. It seems to work pretty well, and i'll be really interested to see how it works with any of my further projects. I appreciate the input a lot, thanks!

Pixel Art / [WIP] [Nudity?] Marionette

Soo I got inspired and I wanted to keep going with the idea. So here's the reference picture I drew and I'm working with

Reference Pic

I used a wooden model to get the body style down, and tried to keep proportions in mind with it, although I'm aware that her head is a little bigger than is proportionate. That was deliberate. She's meant to be a marionette puppet, not a human, just so you know.  :P I don't want there to be any confusion as to what she's supposed to be. She's also supposed to be made from wood and of course have the puppet-y hair. This is another new endeavor for me, and it hasn't turned out quite as nice as I'd hoped, but I think it looks pretty good for starting out. I made two versions, one with distinct hair strand lines, the other without. Also, in the one with the blobbing on the hair, I changed the chin a little bit, and the mouth. Comments and honest critiques are much appreciated, and indeed welcomed.

No lines:

Please be honest and even harsh..I want to get this right! :)

I'm sorry for the misuse of the word. I was mostly just saying I haven't tried to make anything like a portrait before, I've only done the sprite in my other post so this was entirely new to me. I took the advice of all and looked at a couple drawing and anatomy books. I haven't edited her yet, but I've got some new ideas. This is definitely a learning experience that has been invaluable for what I've been working on since. Thanks all for your input, further would be helpful of course.

Wow it's been a while since I posted...
Eyecraft's suggestions were vital. I suppose I should've mentioned, however, that he isn't meant to be wearing pants...or at least you can't see them. He's wearing a tunic. I *tried* to shade it this time around to make that show through, but I'm not sure if i succeeded  :-\
I also tried to add more depth to the picture by adding some more blue between the arms and such. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions!

Thanks for the advice on contrasting--my boyfriend agreed that it looked kind of washed out. I didn't add any more colors, but I did up the contrast to see if it made any difference,so we'll see what needs more changing!
Also, I already have art books that I'm working on...I can draw a lot better on paper than with pixels. It's just a different feeling for me. Anyways, here's the edit.

New update:

You're right--there is a danger with looking at edits to change a picture. The reason, however, that this was so helpful is that I honestly had no picture to go off of aside from a hand drawn drawing and it was my first time doing anything in this style. In the future I'll be able to apply what I learned to other drawings. I suppose the reason I found it so helpful is that my other character was tiny, so the level of detail I used there was much different. It's often a work in progress for me--I'll probably always start out with a pretty boring beginning, but I'll be able to move to my current end more easily. My boyfriend actually asked me the same questions you did, Helm. And it is hard to know, but I think this was a lesson in techniques that were completely new to me that I will be able to apply in the future. Thank you, again.

Can I just say you saved my life? That edit was AMAZING and there was a lot for me to learn. I was able to extrapolate a lot of information and put it to good use in my copy. Any more advice is more than welcome. And you were right about the boobs--definitely needing more freeing. I cannot thank you enough for the edit and the help...that was amazing. Thank you!

Okay so I realize my last one essentially looked awful, so I edited it a bunch. I did try to use my old thread as guidance for this. I'm much better on pencil and paper than I am with pixel art, so transferring the idea from paper to pixels was much harder than I'd considered it would be. So..
I worked a lot on shading and changing the hair shape..although I'm not totally satisfied with the shading of the shirt.
Any further critique would be much appreciated!

I noticed the melding and I'm trying to fix it but I'm having a hard time doing so without making something look bulky or
I changed up the colors a bit, to see if I could get better contrast. This little bugger is hard to get right! I guess it's just all about learning new techniques, of which I have many to learn.

Oh my bad, I was assuming most people would know that it was from torchlight or a game of some kind  :-[ I didn't mean to imply that I drew the original. I just posted it from that game because that was the kind of look I was going for. Sorry!
