Pixelart portrait inspired by princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from star wars (episode IV)
But as you see it was only loose inspiration – model was different.
320x256 size
32 colors

Handpixelled in Grafx2 with a mouse. No conversion, tools etc. I took about 20-30hours 
I used several refs. on different stages of work, but nothing particular. 
Maybe I will show more refined version later (background)

Picture was done for Amiga 500 computer.  
Took third place in dedicated (oldschool gfx) demoscene competition for that platform in Goteborg (Sweden) this year.

This reminds me of the graphics of certain late 90s videogames, like a 3D model with colorbanding or something. This is really gorgeous and so so impressive, it's obvious you've spent a lot of years and a lot of hard work to get this skilled!

WOW. I don't even know where to begin. When i first saw this piece, i thought it was seriously impressive and I hadn't even noticed it was made from pixels. The fact that it is made of pixels is absolutely mind blowing. This is so well thought out and executed in every aspect. Congratulations on the DD! You definitely deserve it.

Thank you!
Well - background lacks of details and AA, but it's mainly portrait so it doesn't hurt so much I think.
Thanks for kind words :)
