[WIP][C+C] Portrait for a friend's birthday

on: June 09, 2015, 05:13:57 pm
Hi, good people of Pixelation.

I'm making a pixel portrait of a friend for her birthday. I'm not good with people, so it's just a direct overpaint:



Here are the original picture and photoshop cutout filter (btw am I wrong for using this as an additional reference?).

Everything is very much work-in-progress and will be refined (AA and stuff). Right now I'm mostly struggling with skin colors. Face seems too "flat" to me. I'm not much of realism fan, trying to find more stylized color scheme that will fit.

maybe pink skin doesn't fit the gothic theme.

Good work so far!

The face is a tad too bright for my taste

The horns in the picture look a bit boring to me.. I am sure you can make them more epic in the pixel version!

Thanks for the crits guys. Color tweaking and different horns didn't work out. Was mostly doing polishing work.

Today is her birthday, so I finally stopped working on it. She liked it, so I'm happy :)
