Faith from Mirror's Edge. Uses more colors than my usual work, but I'm happy with the product.

I gathered as much but it seems kind of alarming that theChannel wrote "looks like hair  D:" as if that was a horrible thing considering that that's the normal state of a female human.

generally good picture, but that`s no Faith.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/1/2011 13:16

The issue isn't that there's hair there, it's that it's supposed to be shading and is reading as armpit hair.

Geti (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 3/31/2011 18:15

What's so wrong with armpit hair, guys? Faith not conforming to your idea of what a woman should be?

I think it's unlikely you won't place this week :]

I love this game. I don't think you've quite caught her likeness though.

Also, in order to remove her armpit hair, get rid of the dithering and make the shadow follow the contour of her arm.

TypeVision (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/26/2011 15:01

Amazing, shadows looks great!

SatTheArtist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/26/2011 14:37

Amazing job ^^

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 13:54

Awesome, thanks for all the help.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 13:30

Looks nicer. I did a slight edit by using some of your existing colours on her fingers,by putting them on the bag. Also got rid of the brownish red that was too similar to the brown:


17 Colours.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 13:13

One more time, then, I guess. I adjusted the palette again and added one more color for the shadow of the hand, so hopefully this time it'll stick out more.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 12:47

I agree with cure. Either more dramatic or go back to the 17 colour version.

Will be voting for this regardless.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/26/2011 12:45

eh, the shift isn't really enough to notice, I'd personally make it more dramatic or just save the extra colors and revert to the previous version.

also, cannot unsee the armpit hair :P

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 11:10

Took your advice, the difference in mine is less dramatic, though. I messed with the palette a bit to get it down to 18 colors.

TheChannel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/26/2011 11:01

 Dont darken her arm pit so much,  looks like hair  D:

Good job though

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/26/2011 10:44

definitely better.

nice edit, stickman. i think it makes a big difference for the piece.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 10:31

I absolutely adore this game. I would have made the difference of her hand and the reflection a bit more obvious.

A very dirty edit!!! But it's an idea although it bumps your colour count to 22:


Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/26/2011 10:20

I think I fixed all the issues you mentioned here. Better?

PoisonousJoy (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/26/2011 10:19

I don't get that reflection.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/26/2011 09:47

face doesn't quite fit her head (eyes seem far-spaced, mouth could probably drop down a pixel, what's chin and what's the underside of the jaw is a little hazy). the glare could be rounder (speaking about that straight bottom line), since it reads more like the sun behind her than a glare on the glass, being that it doesn't interfere with her reflection as in the reference.
