Self-Portrait.  Made by placing one pixel at a time with love and care given to each and every one before it was placed.

Edit: taking in feedback, added luminosity and smoothed some gradations.

truly beautiful.

Nah, that's just my face.

Noice pixellin', odd grainy style, though. Seems to detract from the image's femininity.

 Kinda like the "girl with a pearl earring" but not as interesting to look at. How about a big spider on her shoulder? :)

I like it. It's really neat :D!

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/19/2009 16:16
Thanks so much- for kind words and for constructive words that helped me improve it!

Very nice work!!! +1 :)

Is a good self portrait but you can reduce the contrast a little bit.

ahm, and you look's nice... or beauty ^_^

Yay...... You're in!   Again I'll say excellent work.

Alright, this newest version is clean enough for my tastes (although I think the hair is a bit noisy, I think focusing more on strands and direction would make it look better)

-great work, very realistic

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/18/2009 15:30
Ooh, nice edit!  The luminosity from the up-left is a really nice change.  Although, the expression changed slightly toward being a little pissed rather than pensive.

Great edit. Thank you for doing that.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/18/2009 13:24
MetaruDogmeat (damn your avatar thievery): It's legit.  The only reason I haven't pushed it in yet is the borderline sketchiness, getting mod feedback and whatnot.  We've had stuff like this let in then afterwards rejected that was about as controlled as this.  Hazy area.
On another note: an edit

There Is No Cure already saw my reference and verified that it was not a "bad trace."  And, yes, your comment is just plain mean.  Not constructive, not helpful, just mean, I'm glad you can recognize that in yourself.

This is really nice.  Great work!  I hear ya on the  I had the same problem.  I say let it in and maybe change the rules for self portraits.  This is the internet, PM or not, it could end up anywhere.

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/17/2009 14:51
Resubmitted as no longer work in progress with more standardized methods of pixelation (you're breaking my spirit here, people).  Why does this process have to be so bureaucratic? I feel like I'm back in the office.

@ Delfos: Changed preview image.  Confused by your first sentence, but that's okay.

@tomic: ja, ich weiB, zu viel farben.  This last one has 64 colors.  Also, this is my first personal dedicated pixel submission.  I have two others, but one was done years ago and the other was a challenge one.

Delfos (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/17/2009 07:41
Well... If this is a self-portrait, what's the difference? You're already in the page...

Anyway, looks really cool to me. And this is clearly not oekaki (why does everyone says oekaki and not just "doodle"... it's the same thing..). BUT, being a WIP, this shouldn't be in the gallery.
upload it when it's finished! Will be far much succesful.

And change the preview image, it's really ugly xD

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/17/2009 00:26
hmm, shows that you've deffo got some skills in drawing. still, for my understanding of pixel-art it's more a pixelated portrait than a pixeled one (eher 'pixelig' als 'gepixelt', 136 farben sind auch echt 'nen bisschen viel).. thus i dunno if it qualifies for the gallery. reminds me on the oekaki-issue.

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/16/2009 09:28
Thank you.  It's in progress, but I do like that style of pixelation, tried it with the lemons on wood pixel piece, to partial success.

Quake (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/16/2009 09:25
Looks cool :] rather uhm.. "oil pastel" :P

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/16/2009 09:05
Do you need a link my own photograph? Can I send it to you via a PM?  I don't really want my personal photos linked here.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/16/2009 08:57
reference please
