Saw the challenge when I logged in this after noon about 5pm, it is now 3am... yeah... so here is what I have. I didn't see that this had to be a Original Character so for fun I dug up some Fan Characters my wife and I have. So even if its not valid after all I still had fun making this.

Still a work in progress... I am REALLY bad at shading so its taking me forever and a day (Especially with the 32 color limit) Hints on shading would be appreciated.

At last! got an idea for a challenge! :D
here's my wip(me and my giant alien GF):

the "clothes" on her are marks,not clothes,lol.
and this is really ironic! beacause my real gf is really not tall and i'm really really tall lol.
this is going to be so (alien'ish'-)cute! :3

[EDIT] I lineart(ed) it,and now i'm colouring it! she's going to be gold,and the marks white,lol.
[EDIT] I need help! i'm not good with BG's :S

You can use this online color counter which is pretty convenient.  Just make sure the file you're using is a .gif, there is an option that lets you do that as well c:

It's 20 by the way. ('v')b

Wait, is this for the weekly challenge?

Doesnt seem to fit the theme though.


The halo thing around earth doesnt really seem all that spread out, maybe make less colors, and the darker color even darker.  Sorry if I'm not explaining clearly my brain is dead from 2 and a half ours of math.

@ Oren: this looks great! Don't worry about a bg and check your lines and anatomy. That thing growing out of her head doesn't look as good as the rest, and is a bit meaningless. Also her hips should curve back a little.
Not sure about outlines either.

This is going to be an interesting challenge.  I am looking forward to what will be produced.  I wont be participating; still need to finish my Black&White challenge...

I can empathize with you, TheRobinHood.  I've done an hour of math and have another hour to go.  Speaking of math, I suppose I should get back to work.

I have a question: is it supposed to be the perfect match between yourself and an extra terrestrial or just two extra terrestrials?

Thinking of making this my first go at the weekly challenges. :)

I have very little experience in pixeling but I noticed that the nose was a little hard to differentiate, perhaps this would make it clearer and more noticeable?



but then again, maybe it makes her too human-ish idk

Dhr. Bosch : nice pose, though  the thighs seem a bit long. Keep working on your hands and your face. You really should keep the grid as a floor (with  some aa here and there), it perfectly matches the atmosphere of your piece. I think the pink wall doesn't fit the rest of the pic.

Avatar would be an obvious thing to do as its quite new and quite specific that its a different planet. :)

Happy birthday! 'v'

Nice job, commented on it, and as I said, I really dont see the point of the green outline in some places, seeing as its the only thing its used for.

I have been working on my lovable little alien.  I could use some crits at this point in time if anyone has any to offer.  Thanks :)
