Fallen is Babylon

An attempt to deal with AA, dithering(s), neutralizers and limited palette.
THIS. TOOK. ME. FOREVER, but I'm really happy with the result.

Subject is Eleanor Lamb, one of the main protagonist of Bioshock 2 and (in my opinion) of of the most underrated girl in a video game. References can be found on the Bioshock wiki: bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Eleanor_Lamb

Title is a reference to the first of many graffitis you found across Rapture.

 very good

- like colors, dithering, composition (face is weakest point  - eyes too dark) bottom little flat i compare to rest

great stuff (palette!)

 I love the Pallette's you use, they are such amazing color schemes.

  Congratulations on your first top pixel art awards (Doubt it'll be your last!), keep up the hard work! :)

Great atmosphere! love this piece!

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/27/2011 19:56

First, thanks for your comments everybody, nothing motivates me more :)

And @Manupix and others who notice the (somewhat heavy) dithering: I swear I've tried a lot with only clusters, but whenever I tried the result was never as satisfying to me as with dithering... 
I've made some edits but not sure if it's really good. Any crit is welcomed :) Here's the old and new piece on a lil gif: www.marocchino.fr/img/works/fallen_2versions.gif

Again, thanks a lot guys :)

 I agree that the face should not be dithered. Otherwise great work with just 12 colors.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 11/27/2011 16:26

 Too much dithering on the face. But other than that nice pixeling :)

James McCarter (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/27/2011 09:05

 The lighting is superb!  I love how it falls away from her face.  Nicely done.

Kravvon Nar'roth (Level 4 Ensign) @ 11/26/2011 10:48

 The lighting is AWESOME!

I'm with lucas on the face dithering though, I think it's a bit overdone. But besides that (minor) quibble, this is pure win.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/26/2011 10:44

 Nice, but I think you might have overdone the dithering, especially on her face. Just doesn't give off the smooth feeling that skin should have. Remove the face dithering and it'll be perfect, I believe.

Woop_Woop (Level 1 Private) @ 11/26/2011 05:33

This is amazing! I love it soooooooooooo much. I think you got the colours perfect and the lighting is really atmospheric. I can't even DRAW that good, never mind make a pixel art like that. *favourite*

Flazex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/24/2011 12:22

Oh my God. I love this soo much. You're really good!

sandrowski (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/24/2011 07:07

Biagy (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/24/2011 06:08

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 11/23/2011 22:22

inspiring :) thanks for the great piece.  Faved

SatTheArtist (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/23/2011 18:03

 This is great. I can't wait to see what you become as you progress here, already loving your work!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/23/2011 17:29

Just the dither in the face bothers me.

I came here to say this. It's good everywhere else but the face has no reason to have any, define it as precisely as you can with nice pixel clusters instead! It's the focus of the piece and has to stay crisp and clear. I think there are some better moments in the wip anim.

Paulo Peres (Level 6 SWAT) @ 11/23/2011 17:06

Interesting! I liked so much the atmosphere.

Just the dither in the face bothers me.

Gavralcraw (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/23/2011 14:46

This is lovely. Well done.

TGK (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/23/2011 13:35

 Love it!

Gecimen (Level 10 Maniac) @ 11/23/2011 12:37

Your best piece by far. Grats!

bem (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/23/2011 10:22

Beautiful :) Very good lights

Sai (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/23/2011 10:13

Great depth and I actually like the dithering in this.

codewarrior (Level 1 Seaman) @ 11/23/2011 09:34
