This took a month, but it felt a lot longer. It's funny because the whole point of this was to practice hair without a reference, but instead I never want to pixel hair again. The face was referenced though, of course. Working out the palette was annoying though. Changed colors throughout the process.

In PS when saving for web use the png8 not the png24. Colors will vary and added.

It's nice when you post a image...and you use specific reference image to post and that info...

JJoploo (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/2/2014 21:02

jamon: Yeah, thats the one!

Darth Mandarb: yeah seriously..

Helix Energy: Woah, 63 for the 'saving to web' window? What version of Ps do you use? If you paste the image URL in the Image Specs Tool under the Features list on this website, it should say 16 colors. It's another good way to check the color count on images, for future ref :)

Helix Energy (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/2/2014 16:45

I think this looks gorgeous, but it's using more than 16 colours. Photoshop's saying it's using 63, althought it's also true to say that Photoshop is a bit weird I'm finding at the moment when saving for web - it seems to duplicate colours rather than strip them away...

It's why i don't post my stuff here anymore.

Uh-oh here we go again :)

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/2/2014 03:06

And this is your reference? right?

Well deserved weekly spotlight!

Damn.. epic 16 color usage!

Ęslet (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/31/2014 12:00

This hair is amazing.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/31/2014 11:29

It's a pity that you said you never want to pixel hair again, because it's damn gorgeous. The only thing I find weird is how you outlined the forehead, especially the upper-left (upper-right in the picture) part. Instead of defining a shape with covering hair, you just delineated it, which makes me see her hair as a wig. I hope I expressed myself clearly. Other than that, I'll say it again, it's damn gorgeous!

Stitchy (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/31/2014 10:07

Amazing work! The colors, the hair, the expert dithering... it's stunning!

andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 3/31/2014 09:46

Hairs are unbelieveable!
