Jellyfish by zipple Jellyfish by zipple
A long while ago, the great ~FoxyRepublic re-released her Coco base, and I told myself I would use it. About 90% done, I realized that things were just not working out, so I put off working on it for a couple months. Luckily, I was looking at ~SteamFish's seaspired (making up words, shut up?!) doll the other day and was like, "Oh yeah, maybe I should finish my jellyfish doll." So I spent the last day or so redoing most of it. o3o

... and that is the story of how this came to be. Also, there was a lot of fussing over background-proofing the thing and trying to figure out where all the stupid specks of extra almost-identical-but-not colors were, but this is another story that would probably cause you to question my sanity... (I know I did.) OTL

Base by ~FoxyRepublic (for the tl;dr)

Jellyfish by ~zipple A small doll with a lot of impact. The lighting is fantastic and the underwater theme is executed wonderfully. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

You make pixelart and dolling look so easy D=
The lines are smooth, the colours fit perfectly and the whole thing goes together so well.
It just looks so flawless and smooth, and the more I look at it, the better it gets.

Wow, this is amazingly done, I think it's wonderful. I love how you did the hair and incorporated the blue from her dress into the shadows on her legs. Love the design of the dress in and of itself, but the coloring is exquisite too.

Thank you. :) That technique with the colors is one of my favorite things about pixel art, so I try to incorporate it in everything I do. ^^
