This is my first completed pixel piece; a portrait of one of my fancy rats, Pepper. I got a lot of help on this from Cure, who bullied me into pixeling in the first place.

"Pepper-Lady" is one of my many nicknames for her along with: "Fancy-Face", "Sweetie-Rat", "Pepper-Face", and "skank".

Nice to join you all!


Edit: Made some shadows a little darker.

Edit 2: More saturated/darker skin tone.

It takes some years to pixel like this, kudos.

 Keep it up. I'm really impressed, I wish my first was nearly as good as this.

Sooba (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/1/2011 22:56

 Thanks a bunch. I kept the BG shading light for fear of jaggies and having to add more colours, but maybe I'd be able to use an already made darker color for AA if I gave it more contrast like in your edit. It certainly gives it more depth!

This is awesome for a first piece, great work!  I'd suggest maybe messing around a little with those two blue-green background colours.  You can definitely add a bit of contrast between the two.  Right now I feel like their values are a little too similar to some of the shading on the rat and her outfit, so it almost looks like she is melting into the background.  Here's an example of what I mean:

I'm kind of braindead right now though, so my example is poor.  perhaps somebody else will help out.

turned out great, especially for your first go. so you'd better keep pixellin', or else!
