Bronte by K3nel1OS Bronte by K3nel1OS
Edit: my first Daily Deviation ; A ; I am so honored, thank you all so much! <3 This is so amazing ; v ; <333 You're all lovely !

Whew...

For :iconkoukinshinusagi: and his roommate, both of whom reminded me of the song (Bronte by Gotye).

Seriously. All of you. Go listen to it.

Inspired in part by the Big Head Challenge put out by :iconmistress-jaeden: years ago~but I didn't use very many colors...only 23 (which is more than I usually do as a pixel artist, but still less than many people).

<deep breath> I used a lot of references, so watch out...

[link] by ai-em-maes for the actual shape of the doll
[link] for general pixel-y reference
Bronte by Gotye video for the background

Baseless. MS Paint. Trackpad

I am ded

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-23
Bronte by ~K3nel1OS is a wonderfully executed doll with a limited palette. The facial feature are so unique, giving it that realistic feeling and loads of personality. The detail is stunning, and there's an almost sad emotion behind those eyes. ( Featured by IridescentStardust )

I do have a mouse as well, and some of the other art I have was done with a mouse. ^^ But this was made while I was on a laptop without my mouse. (:

Thank you!

Excellent! I love the shadows and the realistic look of this. :) 23 colors? I imagine that most of it is the gray tones, yes?

K3nel1OS Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Thank you so much. <3

Yes, most of the colors are in her skin alone, mostly due to the background being rather simplistic (i.e., atmospheric and lacking detail). Only 6 of the 23 colors are in the background itself. Allow 1 for the white outline, and the grey tones make up 16 of the entire picture.

It's kind of hard, but I just add shadows as I go along (usually I make a pretty contrasting palette, then make 'transition' tones to make it smoother~) so it isn't so hard. xD

Hm yeah~

It's kind of hard, but it isn't so hard. xD Okay then! I should try it sometime when I get a computer to work on (I use my Kindle, so I can't do this stuff).

Well, I didn't think I really needed to. If people don't know the song and would like to listen to it, I'm sure that they're perfectly capable of typing "bronte gotye" into a Youtube search bar. ;)

I thought it should be included because I like to look at a picture while while listening to the song that inspired it. It really is quite the effect. But you are right.
