My first attempt at lots of AA.

So much more I want to fix!

But I might not get more time to work on this so I'm submitting early.

 I wish I was a dragon that could fire-breath boobies...  
Great style, looks fantastic.

 Her shoulder to boob tattoo is awesome!  Great Job!

 @FlyGuy: By "lots of AA" I mean more than I would typically use, which is basically none or sometimes 3-4 pixels. There are still tons of areas that could really use it.

@smk/Mille: I think the breasts are also too inset, ---->    <-------, and should be more spread out, <----- ----->. The nipples are blah. Overall they definitely need a redraft. I'll keep your tips in mind.

@Mille: Agreed the composition isnt too mindblowing. I'd like to play with some variations in the future. Drawing big is fun, but yes a week deadline for a side project is fairly constricting. 

@Batzy: Thanks!

Thanks for advice and comments everyone!

This has he potential to be a genuinely good piece but the good bits and details are a bit lost in an overall boring picture -with not so much going on in the background and the hair looking unfinished for example. This is a bit sad because the tattoos and face look great if you zoom in there (that baby and vagina skull are amazing). Maybe for a weekly challenge, with few time on your hands, a smaller but tighter piece would have been better... this lacks visual tension.

The anatomy doesn't bother me at all, I can see you were not aiming for neoclassic realism. Her right boob, the tatooed one however works better than the other one, simply because of the more contrasted shadow beneath it, which gives it some weight and depth. The left one looks flatter, kinda manly.

 BOOBIES! finally.... and yup yup fav/voted!

 Really the thing that bothers me the most are the breats, they don't look very natural, can't put my finger quite on it, but perhaps they're a tad too flat and should be a bit lower. Showing that WIP was very helpful and interesting!

im not really seeing much AA here. very interesting piece. it has a lot of potential

PixelPiledriver (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/30/2012 06:15

Yeah, I used a progressive process instead of steps.

I'm not too worried about making major changes after there's already alot of pixels on the canvas, but I agree straight ahead drawing hurts clear direction quite a bit and can leave the piece in a strange state when time is up.

There's about a hundred more things I'd like to fix.

Next time I'll do a line art or greyscale first. 

Good advice!

 Really love most of the tattoos and the design in general, but you should've really fixed the anatomy before pixeling so far!
