A bit manly yeah but I'm a manly man who would make a horrible woman, so there you go.

edit: updated the face to be a bit less mannish with crits from Arachne.

ToSta (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 10/5/2013 14:51

When I see at the picture, I can feel some realxe and warm feelin growing in me. Thank you for that!

johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/26/2012 05:09

 Wow ! Superb :)

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/2/2009 22:44

 Isn't it odd how every pixel artist's female self is so anatomically robust? I swear there is some kind of pattern going on here. Nice glowing mushrooms, however. And the color choice is compelling.

Victor Rojo (Level 9 Guaguas de Pan) @ 9/28/2009 06:01

congratulations, great piece!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/28/2009 03:08

Now I wonder why I didn't vote for this... maybe the off-topic shrooms? maybe the bg? maybe I don't really like how the shroom colors contrast with the browns? Or just that I loved Skurwy's too much...

Deserved win anyway! :D

Semmu (Level 1 Private) @ 9/25/2009 14:22

very nice glow effect.

voted because the mushrooms xD

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/22/2009 14:27

It's cool if you find it disturbing, man. I do. :P

But yeah, like Manjaman said, the kind of ambiguity in the degree of womanness is kind of intentional (kind of). I mean I didn't aim for making her ugly on purpose or something, but I wasn't going for an over-sexualized womany woman or anything, yeah? Just how I'd envision myself were I a woman. Imperfect, sure, maybe even a little butch, but yeah, the ladies come in all shapes and sizes, you know?

And thanks for all the praise and stuff guys :) I dunno about near perfect, Manjaman, but thanks alot (don't look too deeply into the mushroom thing, I just needed an explanation for the green lightsource :P )


Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 9/22/2009 10:06

It's quite obvious that orenshtiv feels ill at ease with sex. So Oren, just ignore the pieces you're judging offensive, or build a criticism, here you're not consructive at all (this is not an attack, just an advise).

Xion, you've done an awesome work, because you've really understood the wealth of this challenge, we can never know if it is a virile girl, a man with prothesises (or even the result of some strange surgical operations >.<).

And on a technical point of view this is almost perfect (the geometrical patterns could have been spread in other areas of the pic).

Is there something to see in these two mushrooms Owo ? Maybe a clue to understand the sex of your character ^.^ )

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/22/2009 09:53

the problem is - the head,it just not girly(or womenly,whatever) and it doesn't work like this..just....weird...srry...

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 9/22/2009 09:36

What problems do you "exactly" have with this piece orenshtiv? What`s so disturbing about this pic? Sorry but you`ve posted on this twice but haven`t really commented on any aspects.

(ppl like it, idk why)

Here`s my reasons for liking it.

The artwork and rendering are very well done. The body dimensions, proportions and the pose are nicely structured. Do you not feel that the creases on the clothing are nicely done?  Do you not think that the lighting and glow coming from the mushrooms fall on the her body convincingly? Do you not feel that her feet drawn in those angles are portrayed well? Do you not like the challenge of the 22 colour pallete?

I hope this does get first place. I´m voting this because I like the different challenges pushed on this artwork and not because I "fancy" her.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/22/2009 07:31

What are you talking about Orenshitv?, sure the facial features aren't  extremly feminine, but her body is gorgeus :D and the pixel work is Amazing!

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/22/2009 07:20

hate to say it,but this is gonna be on the 1st place -.-'
(srry,but this is really disturbing,but ppl like it,idk why)

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/22/2009 02:40

The feet don't seem long enough. Great rendering though :)

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/21/2009 12:20

I love the glow from the mushrooms!

versuti (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/20/2009 14:03

Lov'd the green ilumination in the woman! Nice lineart too. :D

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/20/2009 11:22

This deserves more love...

also I'm seconding The B.O.B

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/20/2009 00:17

nice shading but she's...

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/19/2009 23:30

shit xion, nice pixeling. i thinks the brown background could be different to make it stand out better though.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/18/2009 08:13

Truely fantastic work.. Badassbill has the right idea  ;p

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/17/2009 15:07

Very nicely done, and I enjoy watching the glowing mushrooms!

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 9/17/2009 13:12

I'd hit it.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 9/17/2009 11:44

Her feet beautifully drawn.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 9/17/2009 10:06

She looks like she could kick ass six ways to sunday.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/17/2009 00:51

Hawt, I think you could've empahsised your/her femininity a bit more though; the facial features in particular seem a little bit too strong.

The background is great.

heyy13 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/17/2009 00:33

That is just amazing. Too much love from this corner.

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 9/16/2009 22:22

damn, Very very well done. love the highlighting on the seam of the pants and your impressivly perky boobs. (this coming from a chick mind you)

Jocher (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/16/2009 22:13

 think you win :)

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 9/16/2009 22:09

Big fan of the glowy mushrooms

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 9/16/2009 20:36

I think her back should have more of an arch to it to really sell the pose. lovely work though.

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/16/2009 19:59


AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/16/2009 19:51

contest over.

just wonderful!

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/16/2009 19:47

+ Votez.

Masterfully done! :D

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 9/16/2009 19:28

Damn good rendering man. You've become gnarly with the dithering. So far this one looks like it's stolen my vote...submit more eye-candy, por favor, and keep us ex-punaji's happy...or else...
