Self-Portrait

I have always wanted to make one of myself so I did. I decided to make it abnormal. Enjoy.

It would kinda look like it to me, but knowing his skills and looking closely, it really looks like pixelart.

I've never seen a camera take a picture and give only small pixels like that.

Pastel effect, saved as a low-bit BMP, recolored, with the background seperated. No arguments.

I actually shrinked the image and traced it. I didn't do the line art all on my own, I'll admit that. I did color it though and you can obviously see some AA in there. This took me a while so I did it until I was satisfied with it. I used no filters to do this, it was all in MSPaint.

I figured as much.

I have a problem with the colors. This needs higher contrast from the highlights down to the shadows.

Aside from the value, the colors themselves are getting to me a little bit. The color scale is not continuous; from dark to light it splits off into blue purple, red purple, and the lightest color which is more gray than the rest of it (above all else I don't like that gray) Having the pallet split is fine, but the colors are mixed among each other which makes for a strange transition from one block of color to the next. To illustrate what I mean, I took the image into photoshop and cranked the saturation. It shows how the colors do not smoothly switch around.

I tried my hand at making it with higher contrast and smoother transition...and also one with a bit of red light

Here is an edit of Clockwork's edit. I dithered some to make it look better. I guess it looks a bit better, also without the huge eye.
