:new:EDIT: I added slides with more informations about face and body shading. With tips how to make a palette for the body!:new:

As I promised I made for you a tutorial where I show you how to make a pixel portrait.

It's flash version and I think it's better than normal stretching tutorial.

I hope you like it! :)


If you have a questions just ask me, I'll always respond.



:pointr: If you will follow my tutorial please, :+fav: it and give a link to my tutorial in your work description to show it to other people! :pointl:

The final work:

I have been trying to create a pixelated portrait, but didn't get the look I wanted. 
Your tutorial both look cool and is good explaining things so I'm going to give this a try. :)

One question, though! Does Photoshop CS3 work with this as well? Or do I need a newer version?

Holy crap. That is some hardcore pixel art. I'm not a huge fan of pixel art, but I'm gonna fave this tutorial on the basis that the technique, theory and explanation were solid.

That's not pixel art. That's just a really tiny photo. ;D
I kid. This is pretty amazing! It's like you just sized down a picture only without the blurriness and detail loss.

Oh, no! You caught me! I'm so ashamed! :ashamed:
But seriously it isn't that easy to make a portrait looking like this! I spend a couple of days on it... It's so time-consuming and absorbs a lot of my energy...:(
Anyway, thank you! :hug:
