Sucking on a lolly
Her bird was blue
His name is Stue
And he made her jolly.

gah.... so good.... this is crazy awesome!! The character and design would be stunning even if you had drawn it! And the fact you have pixelled it, let alone the perfection you have done that with, just makes it brain-meltingly epic.....

Arr! :nod:Jeg liker den animerte personlighet i dette fremdeles liv, har hun en veldig trendy mote. Er det en måte å ha en større sprite og fortsatt holde klarhet i hennes detaljer:-? Jeg beklager for norsk min, er det ikke mitt første språk.:pirate:

Hehe takk! Men jeg er ikke helt sikker på hva du mener her :? hvis du vil ha et større versjon: lagre bildet til pc'en din, da kan du åpne det i photoshop eller en andre slags grafikk program. 'Zoom in' på bildet, tast 'print screen', da lim det inn i en ny fil- så skal du få et større versjon, sammen med pixelisation :) håper det hjelper!

Forresten er jeg engelsk og derfor ikke så flink å skrive flytende norsk..særlig grammatikken min ^^; Men det er morsomt å prøve :D

Send one more time the finished test, there aren't ashes in the wind nowadays. And it's terrible possible that they forgive someone's awesome work ;)

I'm very tired of this test... I don't get the sprite clean & clear like yours.

Only pencil tool in ps? Do you resize in anytime of the process? I'm obviously lost

:)

I would send it again but I don't really see it going anywhere- I have had alot of email correspondence with the HR manager there and it really does seem like the job isn't available right now :/

As to the picture..I started out with a sketch, got all the proportions/details I wanted then resized, and worked over in a different layer using only pencil tool (sometimes the fill tool in larger areas, but no anti-aliasing at all, that ruins the crisp pixel look). I think it's best to work on a larger scale first just to get the correct shapes and flow, working from scratch with the pencil tool would probably destroy that feeling. Hope that makes sense or helps somehow :)
