Cinnamon Twist -- My half of an art trade with Cinnamon Twist. So this is their OC, my design.
A bit of an experiment. Originally, I wanted to make her look like a big cinnamon roll, but as I worked on it, I just couldn't make that work. Partway through, I opted to emphasize the various swirls and called it a day.
I had a lot of fun working with just 2 colors. I tend to want to use TOO MANY colors for my arts (See Rue as an example of this), but with 2, there's no problem. Messing with those dithers was a lot of fun, and IMO it's this piece's strong point.
In terms of the pixelling technique, I'm inclined to call it a success, but the composition lacks clarity and focus.
