Well, it began as a cluster study from Pixelation, and anatomy practice in the same shot

And now I went back to it and finished it with my new Cintiq

Doing pixel art now with pen in hand, and not anymore in a laptop mouse pad. It goes so much faster now, and more intuitive. ; )

I agree, I like that pose but as Cure mentioned, some of the highlights are a bit odd.. I do like your usage of green there though.

Great (brace Adarias) clusters.. I enjoyed that thread over there :p

All I can think of when looking at this is...

"...what'cha thinkin' 'bout?"

xD That said, this is awesome. The colors are fantastic and the shading gives it an artsy while realistic look. Love it. :D

Thanks for te crit, this was done mostly from memory anyways. Also went for stylistic features instead of purely anatomical ones.

color and shading is nice, anatomical not that great though.

Eyeholes are significantly to small, teeth also too small, jawbone at the connection looks painfully wrong.

Also some smaller inconsistencies, with the form of other bones and proportions (e.g. cheekbone).

Dunno what's really going on with the hands, but either the middle hand bones of the right hand are wrong, or the right hand is just overall to big.

So really nice work, but detail and proportion wise there is space to the top.

Fantastic clusters, so much detail

Gawd, this is beautiful in a creepy way (really well pixeled). The one thing that looks a bit funny though is the forehead of the skelly, the rest is great!

I've always preferred using a mouse for pixel art because I prefer the small scale control. What do you think of doing it on a tablet, do you think it is any better or easier?

I think the teeth are a little small, the frontal incissors in particular could be taller. The highlights on the cranium aren't making a ton of sense for me either. Other than that it looks pretty tight.

woah.. It's so clean. Great stuff Vagrant.
