What kind of requirements are there for the WIP? I tend to reversion my pixels rather sporadically.

This is pretty interesting.

Spartan, remember to keep it in a 64x64 canvas. Also, neat idea, being a spartan n' all. I would keep the style of the image though, make your skin very pale.

not exactly. Gas just want to see how ugly we are , but no, of you post your own picture, that would help(specially on more realistic self portraits)

The pic so far:

Please keep in mind that I have hand-placed every single pixel on a blank canvas.

OK, if we must do a WIP, here is mine. And I've vowed a looong time ago to never put a photo of myself online (for your protection, not mine, LOL). So trust me when I say it's a good likeness (the head, not the body. I'm actually skinnier!).

Well, I was going to participate but I doubt my idea will enter in this challenge, I was thinking in doing a portrait of me in a tingle body Xd, the title was going to say.. "I want to be a fairy boy.." then the description was going to say " ...but not like this :(" dunno  really

Here's my WIP of me as a mini demon incubus called "mincubus". I didn't use a photo here (I mean I am pretty easy to pixel this small. I have a beard, shaved head, and big ears). Anyone should be able to tell this isn't a trace any way.

i'll clarify some points before anyone gets in trouble.

first, the challenge is not meant to (or not necesary) make a "pixelation fantasy portrait", its mean to make a representation of you diguised as the fantasy character of you choice. be creative with the pose, you don't need to be directly facing the 'camera'.

WIPS ARE A MUST, means that you MUST put a link to your WIP(Gif animation of your sucesive progress is a good idea). the more detailed the better, but remember, is a MUST. no WIP = fail.

the idea of posting a photo reference is optional, but its main goal is to compare how much you achieve to portrait yourself as a fantasy character. since we or anyone else knows you in person, its the only way to prevent that you just draw a random guy and add him elf ears :P

Posting a photo reference doesn't mean that you don't need to post a WIP. WIPS are a must. Photo references are optional.
