Pixel dolls (+ base body)

I’ve been pixeling again. :) I’ve noticed I do it in cycles, sometimes I can go months and years with absolutely no inspiration (or time…) and then I suddenly tilt and produce a whole bunch of stuff in just a few days/weeks. Kinda irritating, because it is my favourite medium after traditional drawings and I would love to be more active. Too bad pixeling is so time consuming. And that it requires a computer, it’s not like I can casually do it on the couch while watching TV.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been doing lately:

Karin Persson - pixel doll sketchy frame
Just a sketchy portrait-type thing. BUT. I’ve made a base body of it! It’s right here if you want to use it! :D

Karin Persson - raven pixel doll
Wind and ravens (Looks better on DeviantArt) and a little self portrait. Bases by Angy Chan and Duckie.

I was trying to make a new layout for my site, but it never came out right… Here’s the header doll anyway, a cyan witch. Base by Hollay.

Another failed layout attempt. But I haven’t completely given up hope on this one yet.
I think I might have an idea…

    These are gorgeous. I tried to do this a long time ago so I understand it’s not the easiest or quickest art form (I don’t have the patience!) but the results can be fantastic. My favorite is the one on the bottom.

    Hur lång tid tar det att göra en sådan där bild? Ser ut att vara så sjukt tidskrävande.

      Tack :)
      Den med den lila klänningen tog bara ett par timmar, 4-5 kanske allt som allt, iom att den är liten och rätt enkel. Den med månen och snöflingorna tog mer än dubbelt så länge eftersom den dels är större, dels mer komplicerad i sin komposition.
      Sen orkar i alla fall inte jag göra allt i en sittning heller. Jag gör kanske outlinen en dag, färglägger/skuggar håret nästa dag, gör kläderna dag 3 osv.

    I love pixel art! haven’t seen any lately though.. yours looks really good!
    Maybe if you had a lap top you could pixel art in front of a TV :)

    Your pixel art is so pretty, especially how you do the hair! It looks like that takes so much patience. My favorite is the 2nd to last one :)
