Three colors plus transparency. Just a little exercise to get into pixels again. 'twas fun!
Also, a fun excuse to play with non-traditional dithering, yo

What really makes this piece is the non-traditional dithering technique. It really adds that extra dimension to the shading that isn't immediately obvious in the usual dithering patterns. I also really enjoy the heart motif that flows through this. Great job!

I hadn't even noticed that there was dithering. I find this way much more interesting than the regular kind you see in most tutorials. I like that I can actually see the shapes for each shade, I think that's what I don't get when I tried to go for pixels back in the day.

I don't have much to say except that, like everyone else, I love this thing. The idea and the hearts all over it combined with the pinkish and purple hues just makes it an instant favourite. I also like how even though it's stylised, you can still see the real shapes of a skull in it, as if the bones had real texture.

Dude, that is an epic design! A lot of my favourite stuff is a good mix between beautiful and ugly, love / hate, good / evil.. and so on. Awesome!

Woah. I love the daylights out of it. The whole design is quite impeccable. It sure is a great way to get oneself back into pixels!
