Apologies for the necro but this seemed like the most relevant thread.
I missed out on SS this time so here's something for Alcopop.


[fullres]

Based off of this, other 2 are in the works but I figured I'd submit this as a humble New Years gift.

Still some issues to be cleaned up but I hope you enjoy :y:

I really like this! I remember seeing the original on pixeljoint a while ago. You've captured the expression in the face as well as the overall feel of the picture really well. Any chance of seeing it in an interesting pose?

Is there a community specific to this kind of "lowpoly combined with pixel art" style or am I in the right place? I'm really looking into getting better at it.

Thanks!

Awesome work pistachio!

Polycount might be a better bet because this forum is very inactive, but if you do interesting stuff people will come to help you, as this is the place with the most concentrated amount of pixel artists who also do 3d, maybe. But I don't really think pixel art needs to be held to as high a standard as 2d pieces when its used as a texture, so I wouldn't put too much excess worry on that. Can't really say for sure about Polycount because I don't go there, but take a look.

Polycount has a low-poly section where you'll often find models with pixel art textures.

There is a guy there who goes by tennis who does pixel art textures exclusively so he might have some creations that suit you.

And tennis is our very own Kenneth Fejer, though he's not too active here these days.

So i've been playing around with Substance Designer and i'm really loving it.  Here's a brick material I made with it. 100% procedural




and here's the graph for it:

Thanks for the replies and advice! I've heard of that Kenneth Fejer guy; I just bookmarked kennethfejer.com only a few days ago! Small world. He is amazing and so good at what he does. If polycount is where he hangs out then I'll definitely go there in the hope that I can learn something from him. Thanks again!

Numero dos



[fullres]

Proportions are off, some parts better, some parts worse. Weapon is heavily WIP. I'll be releasing the 3rd then going back and polishing all of em. Tips on how to make these more consistent still appreciated.

Atnas/gennoveus:
Thanks man!
Joining polycount is something I've been considering for a long long time now, maybe since before the 8th gen. I know a few other guys hang about there too, ptoing is one.
I actually have some amateur 3d exp under my belt (not counting 3ds Max which I messed with in 2009), maybe 2 years of serious improvement, and my skills still ain't jack compared to a guy like pior's :lol:
For me low poly is where it's at though, it doesn't get much love and it's a good crossover to the higher spec stuff I've been doing.
If there's enough traction for that at polycount I'll look into joining.

Indigo:
Cool. Maybe less gloss on the edges of the bricks where it's worn or chipped, something about the overall shininess there gives it a plastic/lego vibe at grazing angles.

On texturing software, I've heard good things about quixel suite as well, albeit it has a pretty different workflow. Have you or your coworkers tried it out?
BTW, very late thanks for implementing the icons, more thanks for the changes to them. Subtle but it really adds that extra 10% to the extra 10%.

I now have an art video collection on youtube for those interested. It's mostly me making 2 frame character art for my current game.

I think you got the king and golem titles mixed up.

Thanks, should be fixed now.
