Welcome back pixelation! You can't have expected me not to join in with this...

I decided i'd get my hair out of my face for this one. I haven't made a proper portrait of myself in ages, since the yearbook collab, as i was taken back with how hard it was. This seemed to pour out of me with less hassle than a cuppa pouring down my throat. I think the likeness is pretty good, and i'm quite proud of that. [Self-crit: more hair needed on top of the head..]

Credits to Ptoing for the palette and original piece that started it all (i believe).

I might animate it later. Keep an eye out!
EDIT: Animated.

Pah, side-partings are so last year. A middle-parting is what you want mate! Never goes out of fashion, heh.
Seriously though, this is great. I like the reflection light on the cheeks, and the rustbug palette makes the transition look wowy.

I really like the rustbug pallete added in the FX. Smart!

Your hair looks better when it's all in your face. ;)

Good work tho.

I think this is one of my faves. The hair is especially done well.

Blink! Darn you, Blink!!
Fantastic work, very smooth, a fine addition.

I'm really pleased with the way this turned out.  Not just because I finally get to see the sexy devil that you are, but because I like your use of the colors.  It came out very nice.

I'd animate mine, but Pixen + Animation + Intel Macs = crash.
