@0xdb This sandwich guy gives me the chills. Why are your humas always like this? :(

So here is my result of today. I need to post more often. It's not good for me to stew in my own juice all time. ^^

Pixel Art / Re: Trouble with big tree trunk (baobab)

Ow, this thread surprised me. I've never heard about baobobs before.
You made great progress. The new color choice, the lower right, is way better and it looks more natural now.
What bothers me is the thickness of the trunk. It does not scream "TREE!" to me, even if baobobs look like that. So this is an artistic choice. You can make it to look more like a tree to everyone who doesn't know baobobs or you can leave it as it is to be more correct.

Oh, and try to loosen up your outline a little. It's really cartoonish currently.

EDIT: Ahaha, Baobobs are called "Affenbrotbaum" in german what's corresponding to "monkey bread tree". And of course I've known them before, they just look different as home plant.

There is this crack going from the wood into the metal. It's just a detail, but you may fix it in no time. It would not crack like that. Let the crack go right under the metal edge.

My first try with textures. I was looking forward this exercise and it didn't disappoint me. It is fun (but hard). =)


@beast Nice to see you posting. Don't stop.

You have to work on the shading. There is no actual lightsource and thereby a lot of pillow shading is represented.

She's a Faunus which means she has a trait from an animal. So yes, she does have cat ears.

Your reaction is just natural, since I was a little provoking with my appointment. But yeah, like Mystery said: This fact wasn't visible in your first post. :)

As to the head: If this is the style you want to go for, okay.
But her actual headshape does make her look chubby, what in fact, she is not. It doesn't hurt to play around with your sprite to learn something new.

There is nothing to talk about here. What did you expect to hear?

Edit:



I reduced the color count to four and then worked on making it match the source material. Your overall shape was pretty good, but some of the proportions/feature placements were inhibiting its cuteness.

Your biggest problem comes from using lots of similar colors. Try working with a smaller ramp and varying your hues more to avoid a blurry look!

I'm not sure about this edit, since it is a total different style. I found the first version pretty to the point when it comes to form and cuteness. But there is definetly room to improve the colours.
@Blues: Your last post is a good way to follow. You tried something out, and in my opinion that's the only way to learn colours. Stop thinking to much about it, just remember to not only to change the brightness. Shades go more to blue and purple, lighter colours more to yellow. I'm not a professional, and I'm confused about colours every time as well. That's why I encourage you to play around with colours to look what happens.
Here is a tutorial that may help: http://finalbossblues.com/using-and-choosing-colors/

I'm sorry to say so but... she don't have cat ears, right? It's a ribbon.
Maybe it's worth a try to give her a smaller head like in dotodrymo's edit.
