I've been putting this off because pixel art is still intimidating to me, but I kind of like this and I had wanted to do a character portrait for awhile now. The colors aren't the kind that I normally use, but I chose the main ones at random to sketch with and decided to stick with them while adding a few in between. I brightened everything up at the end though. I imagine that she likes reading and probably has a giant backpack filled with books. Since she's an ox, it's no problem. I made up her name while submitting, but maybe I'll think of something better in the future...

Thanks, I did it just to try it out on the darkest part of the hair and then decided to continue it on most of the rest of it. I guess I was a bit inconsistant with the style of dithering, but I'm usually trying out a lot of things for the first time for each thing I make.

Like your way of dithering (with the stripes).

 I like it a lot! she's got a cute name too :3 the only thing is that the shades are a bit too dark, and the overall image is a little bit too darkish :3
