"A woman with thick, shining dark hair, long eyelashes and heavily hooded eyes… was sitting in the chained chair as though it were a throne."
Bellatrix Lestrange, the Dark Lord's most loyal servant.
A great piece, as others already commented. Superb AA, and nice consistent lighting. Though my first nitpick is is about lighting: i miss some interaction between the mask and the hood where they meet at the top. I'm not really sure if the hood is over the mask or the other way.
The other is a small thing, but I cannot unsee the banding on the top left where the hood meets the mask.
Fantastic work anyway.
First of, thank you to everyone who commented. It's always nice to hear those things.
Mandrill, thank you so much! And I can't believe I hadn't noticed that. I'll get it fixed when I can.
Oh wow, I really dig your style! Quite atypical for pixel art. However, something fresh and new is always cool in my book. .
One tiny nitpick though. Slighty to the right there is a single bright grey pixel on the top of her head. Looks a bit our of place.
I love everything about this. The aa is especialy nice as it smooths things out without making them blurry. Really A+ work.
