Even though it's a competition...

I learned to dither better from http://pixels.eclectic-blue.com/resourc ... 0tutorial/ :D

I'm gonna thin up her face cause it seems a bit too plump...
So. How horrible did I do on dithering? when you dither how many colors do you use?
Update:
So I realized the incisions on the bottom were uneven. Fixed that, tossed on the bows which was a GREAT idea! Also I realized the top part couldn't be the stretched pleating thing if there was nothing to hold it in the center... if that makes sense? Now I'm not crazy about the mint color, any suggestions to go with the blue?

So I changed the hair because it looked so silly shaded. Also i loovveeee my hat ^_^
I also changed the color of the suit, pink and brown or mint and blue?


Okay Can you guys chose the 2 piece or one piece?

Also any final CC?

Looks nice! :D I really like the design! When I dither, I don't really pay attention to the colors.. I just use as many as I need to make it look smooth. :)

As for the suit, where this challenge is clothing minimal, I think you should really go WILD with the details here. Lots and lots of jewelry, some patterns, maybe a beach bag hanging in the crook of her arm?
I'd definitely add a bow or some sort of heart/star/stud just above those slits on the legs. They look a little stark now, and something cutesy there would make it visually interesting to look at. :)

She's looking fab so far! I love the swimsuit design! I'm sure it will look super cute when it's finished.:D
Like Hollay, I don't really worry very much about my color count. As long as it looks right, it's good enough for me! XD Your dithering looks fine so far, although we'll truly see how well it works once you've got the rest of the swimsuit finished.

You could also add a bit of antialiasing to the swimsuit where it meets the skin of her thighs to make it look less jagged.

actually, I think the mint colour is great!
the only thing I can ugget i maybe put some tiny ruffles at the top part of her swimsuit, at her boobs, the mint-coloured part...
just an idea though ^^
I already really like her ^^

Oh she looks so great so far~!
I really like the colors you chose for the suit actually, but I do have just one suggestion.
Where the mint part is, it seems as though you were right for a ruffled/ruched look and it looks great though slightly flat.
If you extended the mint part out a slight bit at the edges it would seem more like it was off her chest a bit more (and add to the poofed effect). Unless that isn't anything like you were going for, just a thought xD
