General Discussion / Order of Techniques
« on: November 09, 2020, 09:36:42 am »
Good day,

I'm a beginner sprite artist that's working towards a standardized approach for the animation process.
With that in mind, I hope to reduce repetition and save time while having a well planned process.

To the experienced artists, are you drawing your light sources as you work on your frames during animation or is that it's own separate step ?

I'm trying to minimize the amount of work so that it's easier to animate, and then do other things afterwards like details and stylization, that fancy belt buckle that hasn't been added yet, the shading, lighting, values and what not..

Pixel Art / [WIP] Losing ambition here - platform interior
« on: May 24, 2020, 12:53:40 pm »
Hi guys,

This entire house feels like a confusion, a mess.

It's suppose to have the following rooms:

  • attic
  • Guest bedroom
  • Second bedroom
  • Main bedroom
  • It doesn't need a bathroom for the story, but I've got two here ugh.
  • Study
  • Lounge
  • Hallway beside second bedroom
  • Garage - haven't added that

Can I have some critic here ?

You ever watched Treasure Planet ?

Amateur here, perhaps the direction of the cape ? It feels a little like an illusion, is it facing inward or outwards..

Pixel Art / Hexagon Kitchen Tiles [Activity] [WIP]
« on: May 23, 2020, 07:24:17 pm »
Hi guys, so I'm working on a platformer game, and I just got back to the kitchen area, which is really grey scale.
So I thought well perhaps someone would be interested in coloring it in!

Here's the image file, you can use the fill tool!
This is for a zombie inspired game, there won't be zombies in this particular house though.

You could add aging(it's a family home, they've lived there for at least 14 years I suppose!)
You can make a timeline too, I plan on having a before the Apocalypse state(clean(possibly aged) and after.. (after being a few months) so dirty tiles ?


I really don't expect anyone to try, so please no hate. I can't post in the challenges section for some reason.

This is the floor tiles I've chosen to go with since it's relevant to the era the house was built in.. Since it's a kitchen the stones are very likely smooth not bumpy like an outdoor path might be.

For reference, here's the whole kitchen, the top section are wall tiles because of the era as well. For some reason people liked it ?



There's no furniture or windows and such yet, since it's the back layer. But if it matters there will be counters, a fridge, oven, windows, table and chairs, perhaps cat bowls and such.. if you aren't interested in filling in the hexagons, perhaps some suggestions on how I could furnish(not finish xD) it ?

Thanks for reading guys and ladies!

Hi guys,

So in Fallout Shelter you can see that the rooms are divided by black lines, but it's also 3D so that's a lil different.


I'm looking for something similar within a building.

I suppose I need to actually create the structure of the building..

In This war of mine they do a similar thing, black lines but it's also 3D..


I just made the tiles for the kitchen within the building, this is the background (background first) then I'll create furniture and such afterwards..



I mean there has to be doors between the rooms, so if I do add dividers than it'll be on a second layer. Considering it's 2d I doubt a person would see the door ? Perhaps I could also just go with the thick black lines and then add a kind of L shape from the viewers perspective on both sides of the black dividers to show that the door is at that location. Unless the dividers is textured or the same as the buildings art.. like brick or so.. I'll give that a go but lemme know if anyone's got input on a nice way to approach this.

Also thoughts on the kitchen tiles ? I haven't added much color, it kind of feels clean to me, since I'm working on a game that'll have blood involved I feel like the blood or mess will paint color to the rooms haha.

Pixel Art / Teleporting devices [WIP]
« on: October 20, 2018, 07:22:13 am »
Hi guys,

I'm working on teleporter machines, this is the first one, not animated.
The bars will move down causing the player to teleport then return back.

I feel like the color is dull, and that there's more that I can do with the steel. Any suggestions ?

Pixel Art / Re: [WIP] Few issues with my Mansion
« on: May 15, 2017, 11:20:42 am »
Im going to go ahead and move the second floor windows down a bit.

Thank you Ithink i know how i'll do the roofing, I already made a roof but those images provide me with a better idea.

The thing is when I used that image as reference I noticed that in those times the buildings were build with lengthy bricks how ever with less height of the ones we use today.

I need to think up an idea on how to break that repetitive pattern, in the two houses above the walls seem plastered, with tiles here and there.

I guess what I can do is look for similar sprite art that is using the same type of facebrick and see how they break this plain feel of it.

I'll do that and post an update once I've added a new roof and better walls.

This looks really great, Im just trying to understand why the roofs look good. I mean it looks like fabric. But it looks good.

Pixel Art / [WIP] Few issues with my Mansion
« on: May 14, 2017, 03:08:34 pm »
Hi fellow pixel artists,

so I'm trying to go for a victorian themed mansion sprite, the problem is I'm really not sure how to get that 3/4 perspective view.
My next step is to create a roof and I'm not sure how to do that.

I mean I want to create a 3/4 perspective roof but by the looks of it (for me) that's not possible anymore. Im looking at the sprite from the front too much instead of 3/4.

The other thing is the mansion looks a little too pale.. also the bricks seem very repetitive to me.



Here's where I took reference from
