Pixelation Secret Santa gift for Ryumaru.

The criteria to work from:

Ryumaru said:

"So I was a little iffy about putting myself up to a secret santa this year, but after seeing so many anti- pokemons I HAD to go against the crowd so count me in!
I LOVE pokemon : D
Charizard, Scizor, Lugia, Suicune, Typholosion, Crobat ahh I could list so many but im sure thats enough for now :p
Other than that I like .... Art materials. Old holland and rembrandt paints, winsor and newton monarch brushes etc.
If your feeling adventurous some favorite old timey artists include Rembrandt, Vermeer, Caravaggio, Giovanni Boldini, Antonio Mancini."

Reference used is Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring on the left, and the image to the right was the sketch I based my pixel piece on.

This was a fun project to do, so thanks Pixelation and thanks Ryumaru for the bizarre clash of subject matter to work off of!


July 24, 2010: Was going through my old artwork directory and came across this so I went back and changed the earring as intended finally.

Ohhhh, man! That's really, really cool!

It would of been nice to have got her innocent expression across to the creature (at the moment, it looks as though it just ate it's own mother!), but the overall idea is wonderful.

neat idea!^^

i dont like the dithering on the clothes... also the shading looks very pillowish and not very organic... i quite like your sketch, its well done, but i think the pixel convertions isnt rly lucky... why didnt u use that second light source, like on the cheek,  in ur pixel...shading, especialy on  the coat looks much better in the sketch aswell...

maybe too late but anyway....    quick EDIT

great idea + piece but would be better with skamocore's idea.

This was definitely one of my favourite SSs; such a wacky juxtaposition.

I know it's too late now, but it would've been cool to see her wearing a pokeball earring.
