The green butterfly by mariiiis-dolls The green butterfly by mariiiis-dolls
Why 'green' in the title? Because the original main color was green. Started in 2008 (only the top part of the dress was finished), and completed in March/April 2013. I actually don't really like the shading of the bow in the hair, but I decided to leave it as it is. Especially because I wanted to go with only 12 colors (yes, I'm one of the dollers who still likes to work with just a few colors ;) It's a challenge! )

Base: [link]
Colors: 12

EDIT: Thank you for the DD and the comments! It was a suprise - I didn't expect it!

I really like the colors, I love pastel/sherbet/ice cream colors. Working with 12 colors, wow, great job!

Congratulations - your shading never ceases to amaze and mesmerize me. The bow is perhaps my favourite component.

Even though this is an old doll, there is something so enchanting about the way you pixel! There is such a magical quality, and a sense of innocence that I love. The fact that you only used 12 colors is amazing, I could never work like that (tool shader that I am) and I loved the yellowish hues that you put into the folds of her dress. It really adds a wonderful sense of warmth, almost like she was lit up by the sun. Also, the addition of the butterflies, and the hearts is so sweet. Lovely, lovely work. :heart: I'm glad to see that you finished her, I missed seeing your work lately. :meow:

Gorgeous! I love how sparkly the fabric looks and the palette is so soft and dreamy! :heart:

Also, I'm glad you explained the title because I spent a solid minute trying to figure out where the green butterfly was... Would have been looking a lot longer without that helpful information! ;)

it's lovely!! i think the palette and folds are great and the shading on the bow looks good to me, too. it looks like a different and shiny fabric, like the one you'd use for mermaid tails :)

You always do such amazing work. And it's amazing to someone like me, who totally fails at pixel shading, to see the gorgeous work that you can create with so few colors.
