after initial obvious ll/cl:

cl to get 2 out of the 7 red pixels in r23
cl to finish both red 3 clues in c17-18
make sure to get the ll dots at r34c7 and r35c7
cl on the red 12 clue in c8
cl to focus on where the black 4 in c7 can go (2 pixels can be placed in c7r38-29)
cl on the red 2 clue in r29 to make c7 red
cl to finish her mouth
el on the 2 clue in r45 to completely place it in c29-30
el the 5 clue in r28 to dot c8 (you can dot more but it is not necessary)

no guessing

excellent solve

thanks for your pointy entry, Kristen
#4: Kristen Vognild (kristen) on Mar 12, 2013
That's a long solve description. Lately I've been simplifying my images until they're LLS, but I decided to keep this one a bit harder (or pointier?).
#5: Jota (jota) on Mar 12, 2013
I loved solving this! Thanks!
I personally loved the dress too.
Thanks Kristen!
#6: Kristen Vognild (kristen) on Mar 12, 2013
You're welcome, Jota :)
#7: bugaboo (bugaboo) on Mar 12, 2013
keep them difficult kristen
the more difficult the better as long as they are logically solvable
#8: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Mar 12, 2013
Even as an 8 yr old,I thought the pointier the better,lol.:)
#9: Tom O'Connell (sensei69) on Mar 12, 2013
lol Al
#10: Jota (jota) on Mar 17, 2013
I wish the question mark would disappear!
#11: Tom O'Connell (sensei69) on Mar 17, 2013
how much would you pay, Jota?
#12: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Mar 17, 2013
Congrats Kristen.:)
#13: Kristen Vognild (Kristen) on Mar 17, 2013
Thanks :)
#14: Jota (jota) on Mar 17, 2013
Even tough the question mark didn't disappear I had to rely on me solving it w/o guessing and the Bug saying so.
Congrats Kristen!
#15: Tom O'Connell (sensei69) on Mar 18, 2013
ditto Jota

Yiii!! Beautiful image. Couldn't get it (without Bugaboo's hints) and couldn't set it down. Definitely fun, but my morning's gone.
#17: Kristen Vognild (Kristen) on Apr 2, 2013
Sorry! And you're welcome. ;)
#18: Kristen Vognild (Kristen) on Aug 27, 2013
Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? I mean--could you rule on this puzzle, so it loses the red question mark?
#19: Joe (infrapinklizzard) on Aug 27, 2013
Wow, only 13 raters and at least 8 say guessing - I would assume that 5+ must say much guessing. Well, my shiny new gun says otherwise.
#20: Web Paint-By-Number Robot (webpbn) on Aug 27, 2013
Found to be solvable with moderate lookahead by infrapinklizzard.
