This is pretty interesting.

Spartan, remember to keep it in a 64x64 canvas. Also, neat idea, being a spartan n' all. I would keep the style of the image though, make your skin very pale.

indeed. it wouldn't be fair for those users who didn't have something ready before the competition, in terms of time. we're all suposed to have one week to finish and submit our entries.

not exactly. Gas just want to see how ugly we are , but no, of you post your own picture, that would help(specially on more realistic self portraits)

OK, if we must do a WIP, here is mine. And I've vowed a looong time ago to never put a photo of myself online (for your protection, not mine, LOL). So trust me when I say it's a good likeness (the head, not the body. I'm actually skinnier!).

Here's my WIP of me as a mini demon incubus called "mincubus". I didn't use a photo here (I mean I am pretty easy to pixel this small. I have a beard, shaved head, and big ears). Anyone should be able to tell this isn't a trace any way.



He will eventually be set in a petri dish, with a needle in his chest.

i'll clarify some points before anyone gets in trouble.

first, the challenge is not meant to (or not necesary) make a " http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/2302/Pixelation_Portraits.htm - pixelation fantasy portrait ", its mean to make a representation of you diguised as the fantasy character of you choice. be creative with the pose, you don't need to be directly facing the 'camera'.

WIPS ARE A MUST, means that you MUST put a link to your WIP(Gif animation of your sucesive progress is a good idea). the more detailed the better, but remember, is a MUST. no WIP = fail.

the idea of posting a photo reference is optional, but its main goal is to compare how much you achieve to portrait yourself as a fantasy character. since we or anyone else knows you in person, its the only way to prevent that you just draw a random guy and add him elf ears :P

Posting a photo reference doesn't mean that you don't need to post a WIP. WIPS are a must. Photo references are optional.

Sure it's a mess, the only question is if it's a good mess.

Readability issues around the mouth (it looks like I have a massive underbite rather than goatee) and I still haven't really done anything with the body.

I'm very desapointed cause I have no idea for the challenge, and if I have one, I won't be able to finish it in time...so you'll probably see my participation, AFTER the challenge. good luck to everyone.
Aw I forgot to critique...
Tocky : you should put more colors, and more details with those colors
Opacus : you've really improved your skills last times ! You have really you own style now. The BG bring a great ambiance in the piece
Metaru : I agree with Krysis, the lines are really cool. The idea and the expression of the face are great.

Finished the critique, sorry for my english, and for my critique ><

You really look like that o0 Hah just kidding :P
But seriously it's not a very 'specific' face if you catch my drift. Just really a square with hair and 2 circles in it :P

that's because you have to look beyond a square and two circles. its a caricature after all :P, probably how http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/22817.htm - I often http://www.pixeljoint.com/files/icons/autoretrato_by_metaru.gif - tend http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/25657.htm - to draw http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/23034.htm - myself .

What does people (mods) think about this:

Small file: 64x64 (face, avatarable)
Detail file: Greater than 64x64 (expand on preview, eg. full body, bust, etc.)

The submission will still have a canvas size of 64x64, so meet the rules, but it will also have another larger canvas as something extra.

you should continue as long as you really like it. all you have to do is fix the chin and make it more... more like your chin, actually.

At pregnant cow:
It's really to early to like it or not, but you should continue it anyway in my opinion, whether or not we like it initially (you may improve it based on crits I guess). Art is all about realizing a vision, and if you're working towards something that YOU want to make then I think you should do it :P
