Ok, so, I saw the head m00! made, and I wanted to test my skills at doing something similar.
It became a challenge to use  the most colors posible and still create a manual piece of pixel art.

I dragged bobby of bunnystick in on it, and she beat me with project completion... Which is a good thing because it gave me the nudge I needed to finish this pest of a peoject.
well... no.. I guess I didn't use as many colors as I could have lol so I failed my own challenge.

she took... wayyyy tooo longggg...

Zoom in, yes shes dithered.

This piece has 59 colors total including transparency.
This piece was made completely in Microsoft Paint.
This piece was giffed using Paint Shop Pro 7.

I love everything about this piece, especially the shading on her eyes and jewellery. Love the consistency of colour scheme too, almost jade-like blue/greens :) keep it up

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/14/2009 08:10

That hair, oh my god. I want to see the rest of the body :(

Soala (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2009 02:55
My god.....FAV !

RA/pdx (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/29/2008 04:04
realy good one!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/24/2008 19:56
B-e-a-utiful.=) Hair behind unseen body do feels a little weird, but i wouldn't say it is a bad weirdness in this piece. Maybe her ear a little too close to the front, humans got ear and jaw lines meet in one point  but, i guess, nymph anatomy may vary.=)

Heartsdesire (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/10/2008 16:00
As always wonderful work Jaeden you really do inspire us and your talent is such a gift keep it up and the time it took was worth the effort shes beautiful.

you are so awesome.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/7/2008 16:49
This is great...the lines on the body are so smooth. No crits.

taquito (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/7/2008 13:15
me gusta mucho este trabajo!!
eres exelente!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/7/2008 09:48
now this is what i meant with "expecting something from you considering your skills".

As beatiful and inspiring as usual.

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/7/2008 07:48

BEAUTIFUL work Jaeden. The hair is amazing!

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/6/2008 08:41
Such lovely hair

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/5/2008 15:15
MrMister - I didnt know that O.O Thanks!
old_flick - What did I miss? lol, yea, waterwhore. I would have called her that but I figured it was innapropriate. I didnt realize PJ kept the original file name in its extension... WOOPS! lol
Taikon - Ill consider revisiting this area as well. Thanks for the gentle C+C
*edit* Does anyone know why the text went verticle?

old_flick (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/5/2008 14:29
Ha!  Hadn't noticed that file name.  Between this, and Fool's  piece, we're starting a trend. 

MrMister (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/5/2008 13:00
isnt oceanid the proper name for a 'water nymph'

Taikon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 4/5/2008 07:41

Amazing work! The hair is great, but I also think the hair on top should be worked on, also maybe some AA.

But damn, you must've hated doing it, considering the file name haha!

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/5/2008 07:30
MrMister - Whats an ocien id?
Shiru - Completely intentional :-)
Badassbill  - Its been 10 months I think since I last uploaded here, The damn thing better be better!
Setzer - I didnt use white - I used neon green! MWA HAHAHA  And her boobs shouldnt be that high but since shes not a 'human' I figured I could cheat the system :-p
old_flick - I may do a revision on the top, I started with the left side and worked my way up and around.. Bad idea. Every section looks diferent now I agree on the flowwy concept.
Darth Mandarb - yes their scales! Ty much!
Everyone else - TY ALL FOR THE COMMENTS :-D

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/5/2008 06:29
this is really impressive work!  I particularly like the details around the ear and the "scales" (forgive if that's not what they are!)

Great pixel!

old_flick (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/5/2008 04:02
I'm not sure what the whole 'Use as many colors as I can' thing is about, but she is beautiful.  I'd  like to see a bit more looseness with the hair on top.  Maybe a few more stray hairs. 

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/5/2008 01:49
youre my favorite artist ever

Nora (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/5/2008 01:20
I love the eyes, again.

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/5/2008 00:48
a couple things that immediately bothered me with this was the AA on the left side of her cheek->hair and I felt you should've thrown another color or two inbetween your white and other tones, or just not used pure white at all. One of the problems with using an asston of colors is not knowing where to use them all, I guess I have a lot of nitpicks but that doesnt mean I think this is bad =P

I like how her body cuts off but you continued the hair down, that was a nice touch, although something bothers me about her chest.

Gluk (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/5/2008 00:23
6\6 :D

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 4/5/2008 00:18
it's very nice. I like it alot. fav'd

Hdan (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/5/2008 00:18
I like it, very good creation Jaeden ! 5/5

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/5/2008 00:14
Is a lot smoother and has much better form than your other pieces.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/4/2008 23:59
Very impressive, but I think it looks slightly strange with hairs which visible beyond the missing body. It looks like top of body was cut out from other body, together with hairs.

MrMister (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/4/2008 23:36

bunnystick (Level 2 Peon) @ 4/4/2008 23:15
i shall declare it till the day i die that yours is waaaay better then mine
