I figure I'd post this as my first work on pixeljoint. (not my first work ever, mind you. just my first work posted here)
151 colors or so done over a period of days and days. the rounded up time of work i did on this, subtracting all the nonsense like food, sleep and frustratedly storing it away in the hopes i would forget all about it... is a little over 37 hours.
i personally challenged myself to make a pixel piece using as many colors as i could using Microsoft Paint all the way. she is the result. (i have a step by step of my progress if you might have difficulty accepting that this is a pixeled piece through and through)
future pixels i might post here won't be nearly as intense as her.. but i hope it's a nice "hello"
