It's a paint over job I started 2-3 years ago. There's still some areas I don't really like but all in all I'm rather happy with the style, composition and pixel love ( aka dithering ). As usual the dithering contains quite a few gizmos : hearts, stars, space invaders, robot from Berzek, ghost from pacman, ...
Comments and critique are highly appreciated.

I started with a pic I found on the net. Unfortunately I lost the original in the course of various re-install in the last 2-3 years. There was some scaling and a bit of color/contrast correction/posterize then it's all about having a window at 100% ( to see the result ) and one at 1600% ( to work on ) in fullscreen in PhotoShop to do all the dithering, correction of weird highlights/shadows/shapes/...
Paint over jobs may sound cheap and quick but doing a good one is not trivial. But it saves a bit of time by skipping the sketching part.
FWIW the face itself is in 7 colors, there's 3 shades of red + ~5 grey/white pink for the AA ( pbly too much )

The rock faces are okay, but to the left of the tree the rocks look really lame. They look blobby and rushed to me.
I wonder if you noticed the rocks on the left form two faces. Anyway its right, the ones on the right are better and the nest is not integrated very well. This will be improved, as soon as i have a solution and the time for this.
Thanks to all for your kind words.
