Well, here's a colored version for starters. This is going to take a while to get used to, I think.

The grey isn't doing much useful. Makes it look like you have weird, decaying flesh hanging off your face (Though, you might not think that a bad thing).

Also, I love the way you did the hair, there :).
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

I dont think so. I think it reads pretty well. Very well done, I like all the 3 versions of it ;P

The gray reads just fine and is invaluable for these sort of c64 pics. Wonderful work, Arachne. Perhaps the ridge of the nose on the right (ours) side is too rendered, actually.

This is very nice. I'd replace the dark brown on the left cheek area with the darkest grey so that this piece has a better transition from warm to cold and tally with the lighting, as the hair does. I'd also put some dark blue on the right side of that cheek area as shadow penumbra from the nose. I tried making an edit in Project One, but when I was importing, I couldn't retain all your colours, so I don't know how feasible those suggestions are :(

Looks really nice, I liked the colored version the most.
However I would suggest you to use the whole c64 screen and put the picture in the right corner. I think this way you will get a great picture. Just my opinion. Keep it up  :)

That is nice, I hope you follow mcol restrictions :D What's the background colour if so.

On the small portrait i think the eye on the right should be less outlined, and there also is not visible parting in your hair, looks a bit like a piece of cloth put on top of a shaved head.
