Just sharing and caring i guess

on: July 26, 2016, 03:16:33 am
Hi folks,

I just finished a 2D game art portfolio, and I'm starting to move into pixel art. Thought I would share what my non-pixel art looks like, and wanted to know what tips you guys might have when transitioning to making pixel art. I think my style is a pretty good fit, and I haven't had too much trouble so far.

Your portfolio looks solid, albeit some works need a bit of work on the colors. I'm just a beginner in terms of pixel art as well, and I guess knowing color theory is a huge help. When you are doing art in a 16x16pc canvas, the colors will be your friends to help you convey shapes and shadows, for instance.
Knowing how to work with saturation and how to achieve contrast is one of my objectives right now.
