Pixel Art / Sprites (running, jumping)
« on: May 19, 2009, 07:28:20 am »
Hello guys,
I am creating a game.

Ok lets move on to the art part. This game needs a character, and the character needed to run. So I put together all my knowledge, and even though I never made a run animation before I am quite pleased with it.
Jump animation has just been worked on as well.
For the techies between you guys: How should I make the jump animation so that it is easy to work with in game programming? The full jump sequel with the going up and down, or is it often more useful to just have a start of the jump animation, then an image of the character going up and a loose image of the character going down?

Anyway, here is the stuff. Arne's 16 color palette.
View it at 4x, as that is what its made for.

All help, tips, edits, links to tutorials, or just motivating posts are/is welcome!

General Discussion / Why do you love pixel art?
« on: April 25, 2009, 07:14:22 pm »
A topic with the same name was opened on pixeljoint lately, but I suppose the answers here can be far more interesting, because I believe there are quite a lot of people around here that really LOVE pixel art, and have their special reasons to that.
I am willing to share mine, and I hope to hear them from others too! Please tell about why you love pixel art!

Why I got into it

I was born, quite a few years ago as a creative person. People around me realized, but I did not myself.
I was also born as a logic person. In more than just one way.

So, one day, I do not remember how anymore, I introduced myself to isometric pixel art. I believed it was simple, as it followed logical rules, and required no creativity or much skill. Of course I was wrong, but that does not matter. Thing is, I was able to create nice things by using the line tool right.

A year later, a more important thing happened. I found a community. And any community that would have adopted me could have formed me in any way they would have wanted, but it happens to be this pixel community. At the right time.
So that is the reason I kept going on and on.

Why I love it
But you asked me, why do I love pixel art?

I could have fallen in love with many different hobbies, and I might will someday, but I will keep liking this for ever on. And thats just for one thing: Control!
If I draw by pencil, I can never ever remove a line properly after I drew it. Same goes for traditional painting. If I would paint digitally, I would not get the time to do every little pixel of my image right, and I would always be able to spot infinite correctable things I dislike on my image. On a 32x32 pixel canvas, there are no infinite possibilities! Never!

Why I like it

    * Great community
    * Retro
    * Game fans
    * Programmers
    * Logic
    * Impressive
    * Gallery
    * MSpaint doable
    * Iconic
    * Skills being learnt valuable for everything
    * Palettes
    * Animations
    * Isometric stylized stuff

I have much more to say, but I simply don't want to write more/want to waste your reading time more ;)

Pixel Art / Girl sprite
« on: March 19, 2009, 09:20:37 am »
I have realized that I actually want to be able to draw females properly too.. Which are for me way harder than males, probably because I have almost no experience with them.

Any great anatomy resources you guys use, and can you unleash all your critique on this piece?

Pixel Art / Dance animations
« on: February 17, 2009, 11:57:31 am »
For the pixel joint challenge (which I started myself -_-) I want to make a few dance animations.
All featuring the same character probably (me), but doing a different dance.
I really have almost no animation experience, and I am also not an anatomy expert, so its really time for me to learn it :)

I am limited to 8 frames exactly 1/10 of a second long.

At the moment I have one little dance move, which consists of 4 frames being mirrored to get 8 frames. I do have a few non mirrored dance moves in mind too.

Please tell me what you think, as well as on animation, color, anything :)

General Discussion / Portfolio websites
« on: February 07, 2009, 01:29:24 pm »
I noticed that a lot of people here have a nice portfolio website.
I have started on things a few times myself as well, but I never get to finish 'm, and they are never how I want it.

How did you guys make your potfolio websites

Did you first do a lot of sketches, color tests? Anything you can show?  ::)
From scratch written CSS files and html, or did you have a base?  :mean:
How do you keep it updated? Do you have PHP scripts that allows you to add pages without having to manually edit everything, or uploading everything on FTP?  ???
Or wasn't it even build by you, and did you only put in your content?  :blind:

Please tell about it, and show your links to your portfolio websites :)

At the moment I am experimenting with a CMS (drupol) and an (slightly modified) premade template.

Pixel Art / PJ Portrait [WIP]
« on: January 12, 2009, 12:17:17 pm »
Arnes palette, dogmeats idea, my face.

I use a small mirror next to me, but my aim is at the moment not to make it look like me as much as possible now, its hard enough without that too. Anyway, here is my wip!

Any tips?  ;D

Pixel Art / [WIP] A Scary Situation
« on: October 01, 2008, 08:42:10 am »
I am creating a mockup for a dA challenge. The contest gives me a max of 20 colors, max 250x250 px and it has to be as spooky as possible.

Its far from finished, and all your idea's/critiques/edits/whatever can still be changed in the image :).
Please tell me what you think of it :)

Pixel Art / Grand Cafe 'The Bollard'
« on: September 10, 2008, 09:46:37 pm »
This is Grand Cafe the Bollard.
Its for the project, the sidewalks were part of the template.

I would like to hear all your critics, compliments, comments and other thoughts and see your edits.

I believe I am going in the right direction, what do you think? Tell me :)

Thanks for reading and watching


Current version!

Pixel Art / Frog
« on: March 21, 2008, 09:56:01 am »
Hello all,

Its been a while ago, but I made some pa again.

This is for a collaboration at DA. I feel a bit like its finished, but thats more because I can't see how to make it better right now, but I do see its not perfect.

I have been moving and changing the right leg forever, its way better than when I started but its still not so good, any tips/edits on that would be very useful!
Also the rest of the frog needs your opinion!
