3/3 waist up commissions for :iconelissya-chan: 
Character:
Mikan
Tools: PaintToolSai, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Bamboo CTL-470
*BG inspired by Rosuuri Rapunzel Nozomi*

2nd time I've tried this kinda lighting ; v ; spent so many times getting frustrated and redoing at the beginning OTL but then after getting through that part eveything else just started coming naturally
I really liked how this came out even though I'll be honest I kinda halfassed the bg ^^; Thankyou Elissya-chan for allowing me to explore and experiment with her commissions to help further improve myself as an artist!

GOOD LORD SHIYU //DYING FOR ETERNITY
I never got to see any of your coloring process because ya know... Picarto... B U T
Your lighting and colors just get better every drawing ;;w;; THIS IS JUST SO GOOD AAAA //GODLY LIGHTING SHINES ON SHIYU ART
The texture of the fabric is literally life goals -- and this comes from someone whose art depends on fabric LOL
And I notice you're really good at the small stuff??? The frills, flowers, and all the thingies in her hair are my favorite parts <33

The composition, color, shades, details on the dress -- I can't --
No more words can really even begin to describe how amazingly talented you are --
Because I've already used most of em...!! My eyes are all over the place with this drawing!
From looking at the character, just the leaves and branches. Just trying to figure out what/how you were doing it -- Can't do!

How long does pixeling take?

Nice choice of having the sun in the background so you didn't have to fill the space.
Reply
:iconshiyumichan:
ShiyumiChan Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2016  Student General Artist
hahah yeah sometimes have a place for the eyes to rest is good especially when there's a lot going on already

completing pixel art can really depend on how much details you're willing to put into it
If you're planning to do no animation or only animations in the eyes then you can easily get that done within like 30mins, no distractions/breaks , this is if you plan to only do simple cell shading. If you plan to add more details like sparkles and shiny stuff, w.e your style is then that can take slightly longer maybe 30-50mins

If you plan to animate more than just the eyes then imagine that each time you animate one more thing(hair, arms,body,head,legs etc) you're essentially creating more work for yourself and thus increasing the amount of time you work on it. 
You have to do a lot of checking (especially if you're inexperienced with animating) to make sure the animation frames are flowing the way you want it to and smoothly. If something looks odd/weird/incorrect then you needa go back and fix it and recheck the animations again. 
After that you can begin to colour it. If you're lazy you can probably just do a flat base colour for all the frames and call it a day. 
most people will do a cell shading like : porforever.deviantart.com/gall…
This type of shading makes it's easier/ faster to deal with and you can really focus on animating the object/item
If you wanna put more details then you gotta remember you also have to do it for all the frames you've created and recheck multiple times to make the shading all line up and transitions smoothly to the next frame. You can't just randomly shade it and hope for the best cause that'll make the whole pixel animation come out weird, despite you having a solid animation with just the lineart

TL;DR 
the more details you wanna put the longer the the completion will take, the more frames you create, the longer it'll take
the more frames and details you create, the even longer it'll take ^^/
mistakes here and there? more time it'll take cause you needa fix them.

Good to have rest for the hands too.

It might also depend on how big the canvas is. Generally I see pixel images being much smaller but maybe I haven't seen what a gargantuan pixel image looks like yet.
