I decided to go for a more grey palette. I had quite a few problems with the pixel clusters, I'm out of practice. :/

I'd say about or over 20 colours, at a guess!

About 5-10 kilos, I think. I hadn't hit puberty at the time, either!

You lost a lot of weight since then huh?

You've grown very much since that first portrait on page one of your gallery.  Keep up the learning, this is very well done!

 Very good !

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 4/18/2011 12:33

Thank you very much, all of you! :)
I'm afraid I didn't create WIPs, I only have 3 versions of the finished piece... I wanted to finish it in one go.


Mathias, thank you for that link, it's very helpful!

Jeremy, I wanted to leave the shirt plain as to not attract too much attention to it (and there weren't any strong highlights on the reference anyway)

Hi Chris I knew it was you immediatly

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/15/2011 06:06

Very nice!

And it only has 17 colors, btw.

Love the use of reddish to bring out the fore most parts.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/13/2011 21:27

Very nice :D

I feel that there should be a specular highlight or two for shoulders/collarbones

 A WIP would be nice

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/13/2011 12:29

You have improved so much over time o.O

cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/13/2011 12:21

there are some 2x2 clusters that could probably be adjusted so they don't read like giant block pixels. great piece overall, very well-rendered.

TypeVision (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/13/2011 12:04

Oh, sorry. Nice art =D

Merez (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/13/2011 11:45

Good Christo. That's how you do.


Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/13/2011 11:35

Christoballs is quite talented, and a well-respected member of this community. This isn't a color reduction, nor will he ever submit one. 

Since that's cleared up, this is an awesome piece. Your ability to capture all the details and make them read really well in such a confined canvas is quite amazing. Respect goes to you, sir.

Color  Reduction? Or not.
