Ramona Flowers

on: January 12, 2011, 03:35:31 am
For the weekly challenge, I'm making a portrait of Romana Flowers from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I've never tried to use a random pallet like this to make a skin tone, so I'm pretty new to trying to mixing weird colors.



Colors I can use :

reference for jacket : http://miascugh.ptoing.net/pixels/mawio2.gif I found it on the colored line art thread.

I'm afraid the likeness just isn't there.

I loved the idea so i made you an edit.

The likeness is probably more accurate considering the fact that I pixeled this with her face plastered next to it. Good luck!



Edit: Also want to add that although color restrictions might lead one to believe that dithering is necessary ...it is often not so. The above was dithered in particular places for fun more than requirement, so keep that in mind. Try to really use your colors as they are first and if you need to touch something up, or perhaps add texture, you can try a dithered approach.

Eyes too high?

What's with this one-liner fad on the forums these days?

OT:
Her eyes are not at the 100 percent perfect proportion; however, I'm representing a human face, not making one for real. I don't see it as a detraction at this point. No doubt it could be done better? This was made to help someone else with rendering faces with this palette moreso than it was for it's own respect.

For the lulz

Definitely better. With regard to your reference, her head is tilted towards the viewer; however, this was not translated to the picture you made.
Good luck.

Hmmm, I'm not quite sure how to make her tilt toward the viewer, I'm going to have to mess around with that.  I think her eyes looked pretty weird I may have fixed it by moving the right one up a pixel. Also her face was a little smooshed so I gave it more length. I'm not so sure how well the blue works as a highlight, I was just playing around with that.

Finished? I can't find anything that I could do better. I can't make any drastic changes because the due date is tomorrow, but if you point out anything that looks off and it doesn't require me to redraw the whole thing that would be great! thanks!



sorry about the double post
