feel my gun by chuuuuuuuu feel my gun by chuuuuuuuu
Okay, so :iconiridescentstardust: asked many pixelists to pixel a doll using a specific base made by :iconmariiiis-dolls: and this is what I came up with.
By the way, thanks for allowing me to join in this wonderful event, and thank you mariiii for your wonderful base. :33

Process:
Took me a few days to actually decided what I wanted to do, so I decided to finish coloring in one of the bases. Even when I finished, I still had no clue. Continued to browse dA like a madwoman. Then I was inspired by technology and Wii/XBox/PS2 gijinkas so I took my own spin and just scratched out the consolation game idea.

Threw out the first base I colored, and took another one. Altered the legs and arms around. Edited her right hand a bit. Did some lines for her outfit, got stuck so I totally reworked the face. Made her eyes more smaller and more Asian-looking, gave her plumper lips, redid her eyebrows and added a pixel to make her nose just slighter bigger. Went back to lines, finished it, started coloring. Got fed up with some lines I made, redid it. Must've done the bodice like five times. Redid an arm accessory. I kind of procrastinated on her weapon since it was difficult and weapons are not my specialty. Perspective-wise, not the best, but I tried. Finally got around to finishing it... I also like destroyed her feet. Shrunk them so small compared to the original base, so of course proportion is off at the feet, but I wanted it like that.

Blahblahblahblahblahhhh~ After I finally got the whole outfit colored in and finished, I played around with the colors (contemplating black and white, and then blue, red and lime green for whatever's blue ^). Took me forever to choose, and then just decided blue since it was my first choice. Used a different skin palette since I wanted a more pinkish skin tone.

And then done. Whew~
I think my lighting source got lost along the way though...

---SUMMARY
I edited the crap out of the base, done a pixel that is semi-close to mecha, went through a lot of greats and bads and worse, and just had a heck of time pixeling. I put a lot of effort into this doll, so I hope you all enjoy it. :33

Techniques:
Quite honestly, I don't pay attention to techniques I use or plan what I will use and when. I pixel freely and nothing really goes through my mind, but anyway...

-Avoided dithering like I thought it would kill me. Since it was technology-inspired, I wanted to make the lines smooth and look like metal/glass or some-sort.
-Used straight lines to give it that sort of look, light reflection, shines, etc.
-I redid a lot of things I didn't like. Looked up references to help me get most angles/shading right.
-For base edits, specifically the face, I just removed the original facials, recolored the face, and then added my own facials to make it easier rather than going over what was already there.
-I had trouble doing the legs, so I actually started drawing her shoes than redrawing the base legs. It helps a lot also, even for coloring. Less surface area to color for the skin.
-Once I finished the doll, I did a shit-load of touch-ups. I shaded areas on the base around the outfit to make it more realistic than just clothes slapped onto the doll.
-TRIED REAL HARD to avoid clutter. I wanted to add wings, ears, and a tail, but I thought that they were going to kill it, so I just let it be.
SELF-CONTROL is key. :>

EDIT:. Sorry for all the crazy updates, for some reason dA isn't uploading the updated version of this doll correctly. xP

EDITEDIT:. OMG!! THANK YOU FOR THE SECOND DD! I'm so happy, and thank you for the all the faves, comments and watches <3 You're all amazing >///<

So this is where the Roliana item came from! xD

This is amazing, and I'm currently using the choker and the shoulder piece on my Roli avatar right now. xD

Makes me think of KOS-MOS from Xenosaga, not because of any specific details, but rather the whole. was that part of the request or just coincidence?

Either way she looks good.
