Weekly challenge entry for the Etch A Sketch. Used the limitations of every pixel had to be connected similar to a constant line of the Etch A Sketch. The Etch A Sketch I owned as a kid could also only actually draw up, down, left and right - so doing a diagonal meant double thick corners. I incorporated that limitation in here as well so every pixel should have at least one pixel directly above, below or to the side (so no dithering). It does create a few jaggies so I tried to resolve this with outer AA. I don't think it looks that great when zoomed, but for its origional size I am pleased with it.

Subject matter is Chihiro from ef: A Tale of Memories - a fantastic romance/slice of life anime that is very emotional. A beautiful story I recommend everyone watch.

Thanks, and yeah - now that you point out the legs, they are awfully thin aren't they. I'm just going to say it is anime and leave it at that. XD
(Yeah, I stuffed up there in all honesty)
The extra restrictions were great fun, but yes - rather challenging. ^_^

Looks great, only nitpick is that the legs look kinda thin.  Love the restrictions you used though, that much have been extra challenging!

@raulfpl - thanks.

@Sapei - Chihiro and Sakura do look kind of similar as silhouette now that you mention it. Also, cardcaptor sakura is one of the few magi-girl animes I actually enjoy.

Make me think about sakura card captor ^^

I like it :)

It looks great when zoomed too, if you have in mind the limitation you added. It just looks a little different then usual but still beautiful.
