Her face is creepy. A crossdresser kind of creepy.
She could use nipples
Thanks you for the comments everyone. I really appreciate all the feedback you have given to me :)
I don't want to edit stuff once I have submitted it, especially with weekly challenges. But I ran out of time so badly with this, and it kinda bothers me how unfinished parts of it look, so I'm bending my own rules just a bit and updating some final cleanup.
I can see that there is lots of work behind this pixel art. I like it.
I agree with some of the improvement suggestions (especially the lower-left part of the image that could be a little more polished), but the overal image is fine.
especially that fish :)
I think that the critiques are bit too focus on the style of each one and no one's seeing your style of work. I mean, the "face and nose thing" is just a matter of style and I think that your really good with the style that you handle. I can only critique the "bulk" in her belly because of how the light is in there, but in the big matter, I think that this is a GREAT piece, in colour, ways of drawing, style, dithering, etc.
Keep up the good work!
yo this is outstanding both technically and stylistically but would you mind erasing the eel's face, reducing his neck and giving him a party hat? I just think it'll make the piece more misterious, y'know?
I think you should have experienced a little more with her head and fingers.
try removing the yellow reflex on her tail.
The light part on her belly area.
All her facial content to leave it unexpressive and misterious.
Reduce her neck.
Less volume and contrast on her hair.
I think its worth trying it out just to see what you can achieve. Its just a cool piece but it doesnt say anything. Doesnt touch. Its cartoon-ish and at the same time mature.
Removing her facial contest would say more about the piece then leaving a happy cartoon face.
It would change your piece, but would at least be touchy in some aspect ( misterious and charming ).
I like the overall look of it, but it looks really unfinished in some parts, especially down in the lower-left corner. Nice dithering technique, though.
Huh? But I kinda like how her eyes mouth and nose turned out...
Remove her eyes mouth and nose and this will have a better feel.
