Portrait of a Mountain Lady

Just one more portrait before I jump back into pixel art! This is a nameless woman that we haven't decided on exactly what she's gonna do yet, but we're gonna need a bunch of random NPCs to help you on your way through this dungeon, so I kind of freestyled a bit :)

Here we go:

  1. I love these portraits, they're beautiful. :)

    If you need some other music as inspiration while designing the town, Sukiyaki is particularly lovely. :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C35DrtPlUbc

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the music suggestion as well, older-style Japanese music is among my favorites actually <3 :D

  2. I just wanna point out some small things that catches my eyes when I look at this portrait. First thing is the long neck which is IMO a bit too long. Second I think you might have to fix her right eye (the one on the left when you look at the picture). The way her eye is looking all over to the side seems a little bit odd to me, I think she should be looking just a little bit more forward. I hope my feedback isn't sounding too harsh.

    BTW I really liked the video. :3

    1. Thank you! You're not too harsh, I wanna make the best portraits that I possibly can, and constructive criticism is a great way to help out with that :D
