ANIME PLASTIC SURGERY GO!!





D:!!!



What have I done? She looks like an anorexic wtf scary thing now (she looks better in 2x though)

Just, stuff I did: I fucked up her hand (I'm using a computer mouse which just fails me, and I did the edit in paint, which killed me D:)

I emphasized the whites in her eye (it'd be good for her general expression if you could see both of her eyebrows, though, anyway, the eyes felt too shadowed by the hair)

I widened the mouth quite a bit (gives expression and personality)

and I anime:ed the nose (and gave it one (!) nostril and i apparently also gave her a cold since she's now red around the nose D;)

I also heightened her head for no reason at all, I should have made it smaller :(

Changed the angle of her neck so that she'd look more natural in her pose

and stuff.

One thing to think about when pixelling, work rough. You've put a lot of finish in the picture (which I have effectiely destroyed), anti-aliasing and so. stuff like that is nice to put in early in the picture (the oooh, I'm making it nice looking, yay-feeling), but it's even better to save that for the last touch and in the beginning just be sure that all the shapes are the way you want them.

So what I'm saying is that if there are any revamps you want to make with this image, go all on out and don't be afraid to destroy something beautiful you've already created in favor to replace it with something either nicer, or something that will make the picture, as a whole, work better.

And that's like, it :D cheers and goodo rucky, habu funny.

(oh, and of course, I, aside from destroying her nose, put it in the middle of her face (or at least, more then before) since even though anime noses are generally offset from the middle line of the face, trying to structure the face usually helps the balance and so on)

I actually think the latest version is fine, and no need to super-prettify or anthing.

D:!!!

Neck:
I think the more natural placement of the head/neck takes away from the piece as a whole.
Leaning back with her head tilted towards the pill makes her seem like she's almost evaluating it.
Yours seems a little too eager.

Nose:
Definitely cuter, and I think the placement is better, but there is no real reason to be changing the shape/style of it.

Head shape:
Much better.

hahaha PILL!! D:!!  that made me laugh. What do you normally use for pixelling? I have a tablet but i hate using it for pixel stuff, i always use a mouse o_o.

The nose you gave her is adorable LOL I want to pinch it. I like the one she has now though too haha xD it's meant to look bulbous and silly hehe. The mouth definitely needs to be widened though and I shall be doing that :). You're also deffinitely right about the working in rough thing..i just have a tendancy to go in and automatically a/a things as i am working rather than after im done. I don't even think about it x_x;

will edit w/ an update in a bit

EDIT://

moved the nose and widened her mouth some



--

haha i've also started making an edit for a diff type of pill

I like the longer hair but I wish I could see more of her other eye. Her eyes also look a bit like she's looking over the pill not at it.

I love the colors you're using. Can't wait to see the finished piece.  ;D
