A psychedelic self-portrait, all nine colors FTW. I feel like there's still work to be done on this, but it's Sunday and I've got other stuff to do. Here's my reference picture

Thanks to Manupix and Skamocore for some help with this!

I personally think this is one of your best works. You made the pallete work for this one..I love the hair

Think it looks somewhat off and not as cute as the photo reference but it's not bad and I like the use of the colors and strangely the lines around the hair in the background though not sure why.

 Sweet! Sweet! I do like the hair, and the vibrant background! The shading on the face could look more like the picture, but I'm not complaining!

Got my vote as well!

 Awesome. You get my vote.

 Yeah, I don't know what the deal is. Probably a ditzy mistake I can't figure out. . .

To make matters worse, all of your colours are significantly darker D:

  Yeah. . . I really dig his font but maybe you're right, plus I'm afraid it'll just irritate people. There's a few hours left, I'll change it. So disregard the PM I sent you!

(never meant for so many *problems* to surround this piece. . .)

Reason for me making a comment earlier about the font: it's kind of a grey area and using someone else's font in your own work is generally frowned upon. Anyway, why not use the font from the preview? I've never thought that Onek's font was very practical, it comes across as more of a proof-of-concept font.

BTW, just want to say, I very much like the sparks around your hair.

What an epic preview, the colors of the hair are a beautiful mix!
