Another not very creative picture... the girl is copied from a photograph by Gérald Petit I found in a magazine, and the background is based on a couple of postcards...
320x256, 16 colours
Hearts, Stars and Horseshoes, Clovers and bl...
Only Hearts and Stars.... OK
Wonderful effect you have done with the skin. I like to think the stars and hearts signify the magic and beauty of people contrasted with the dark and decaying world we are born into.
Thank you for sharing this piece, exocet.
face taxures are so good..........
5/5 for the 16 colors pallete. I'm a not a big fan of copying ladies faces anymore ;) but this one is impresive.
Wow! I love the almost grainy appearance of it. The texture of her skin looks very real... in general she's an excellent piece of realism, the marks under her eyes are great.
cool! apocaliptic! o noh... wait... thats what a citty is like!
Wow, I love it! Background reminds me of that 2mile sniping roost from CoD4 though.
Thanks all for the positive comments, much appreciated!
mrduke: Yes, I work as a video game artist, initially doing pixel art but 3D stuff now. ThereIsNoCure: I agree about the use of reference, that's why I don't regard those pictures too highly because of the little creativity they involve. But I do think it's useful to improve one's techniques and you always learn something, as you need to study the reference very closely. They're more a technique showcase ultimately.
I love the little imperfections in her face and the texture of the cloth on her head is really beautiful. I'm amazed at how so few colors can go so far..
nice, but its just missing... something... cant put my finger on it...
