Hey there, i`m new here, so i thought i just chain my need of an Avatar with my duty to post some pixelart. I'm not new to pixelart but, i rarely make them, because i had no time etc. etc. but now i want to really get into it and just going to learn by making them and use the critique and compliments i may earn. (I*m sorry for my bad english but it's not my mothertongue and so it could be, that i may muddle up a bit.)

But now to my pixelart, the person it shows is me in a "Scott Pilgrim" kind of style, which is a big inspiration for me - and it's way easier as to learn how to draw or pixel realistic faces. The background, wasn't a gradient fill but an experiment, i pixelated it and was lowering the color saturation bit by bit in a rhythm of 3 pixels, 2 pixels, 3 pixels, 2 pixels, and so on i always lowered the saturation by ten starting at 240 ending at 10. Didn't quite came out as expected but it's okay especially because i don't really like if the avatar doesn't fill out all of the little space he has.

critique and hints welcomed. Bye!

Hello and welcome to PJ

The portrait itself is a good start, simple clusters and easy to read forms. However, we cannot add this to the gallery in its current form as it doesn't really hold the quality we are looking for. There are just too many colours and unnecessary gradients.


You can easily reduce the colour count.
