My first pixel artwork ...kinda

on: April 10, 2017, 02:23:13 pm
Hi im starting to draw pixel art and i wanted someone to give me a little advice.
I would appreciate it if anyone helps me.
this is a knight that i was working on that i did not finish because of my constant fear of doing pixel art wrong.
I would love it if you guys can help me with tutorials that you have found.
Thank you for any support  :)  heres the link

To post an image directly in the post, put the link to the image between [ img ][ /img ] Tag  (without the blank spaces). You can add those by clicking the little mona lisa in the interface (just under the B button). This way we can see the image immediately, and zoom on it as needed. Right now I have to open another site and can't zoom easily. So I can't say much!

Very smooth, though I worry on other backgrounds that white aliasing might stick out pretty bad.
For now, focus on the form and anatomical stuff.
What's this guy's purpose? Is he a robot? A ghost? just a regular knightly type?
And what's the personality you want to convey with them, stalwart? distrustworthy? noble?

Consider these and work them into everything from pose to outfit to overall proportions!

And personally I'd say hold off on aliasing stuff for now to focus on design stuff, if you want to do it anyway though ideally you want to do that with the same colors as the color you're aliasing. So, lighter blues with the darker blue, lighter greys with the darker greys, etc etc.

Is good. Aliasing can be hard to grasp but apart from the white you did good on it.
