Pixel Art Challenge: Finding Unusual Beauty


icon
Beauty is about more than being skinny, having perfect skin and hair, ripped muscles or big breasts, more than being new, shiny and perfectly formed. Portray a person or object from every day life that does not conform to classic standards of beauty, but in a beautiful way.
  • 32 colours max
  • Transparency & animation optional
  • NO canvas restriction
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

sure you do...  everyone has the skill, they just need to take the time and effort to use it.

Heh, tough task, I'd say, when everythig around you is ugly and terrifying - people, places, things and only one ... well, are selfportraits allowed?

I have an idea...*snicker*...

Cool idea... this is a lot more cerebral than the usual challenges, more akin to fine art than pixel. ;) Will make a nice change. If there's one thing I've learned it's that you can get way too bogged down in techniques and technicalities, and forget about the art. I do it all the time. :)
