Pixel Art / Warcraft 2/Starcraft style sprites [CC please]
« on: July 11, 2012, 05:14:35 am »
Here are some sprites i've been working on and I could use some critique here.  I intend to use these to create a mockup for an isometric RTS that I'm creating. Thanks for stopping by!
Any other advice you could give me for the project is welcome as well.

General Discussion / Pixel Art Market?

I was wondering if there is any future in being a pixel artist.  My concern is that with technology progressing so fast, even phone games will be moving to vector or 3dcafe art. I love pixel art, I just want to hear from some of you in the industry if a living can be made or how you supplement your income.

Pixel Art / [WIP][C+C] Isometric RTS Tiles v4
« on: August 18, 2011, 09:30:34 pm »
Latest UPDATE: made rocks a bit more angular, less shiny and added grid per request.



I'm coming back here after a long hiatus.  I'm creating a 2D RTS in isometric perspective.  I've created this starter tileset that is to be the template as I add details, tiles are for water, grass, land and plateaus/cliffs.
Let me know what you think, if there are any errors or something I overlooked, then I'll start adding details and shading and the like.  
(I'm also looking for a programmer/and or good engine to make this in since the last one didn't pan out.)



Pixel Art / Alien walking animation (grey)
« on: April 09, 2008, 03:47:02 am »
Hey guys,

This is my old stomping ground but haven't been on in about a year  :(.  I could lose so many hours just staring at art on here.  Anyway, my latest foray has been into the animation world. I'm not very strong at animation as a matter of fact this is like my 2nd or third walking character ever. 

I need some help with this guy, I know I'm missing some key frames but not sure what they should be  ???. I tried to make his whole body get into the walk but as I said, I'm new at this. Crits and help appreciated.  I have to have this guy done by Saturday so hopefully I'll get some input before then. Thanks a lot everyone!  ;D


I know quite a few of you dabble in 3d art modelling as well as pixel art.  For those that do, which forums do you frequent or recommend and why?

Any other tips for someone wanting to learn 3d modelling.  I have 3Ds Max 5 just so you know, so a 3ds Max specific forum is most likely what I'm  looking for.
Here's to hoping this post doesn't get neglected completely. Thanks for your input!

Pixel Art / Some Isometric characters and tiles
« on: January 14, 2007, 04:10:14 am »
Crits please, I'd like to make these better. I struggle with the iso perspective still. And color choice.

There are 2 seperate characters here and the grass tiles of course.

Pixel Art / [WIP]Main character for a Tactic RPG, need crits! UPDATE*
« on: December 15, 2006, 10:20:04 pm »
Hello all,

I'm working on an SRPG Turn-based Tactics style game.  I've never attempted this style before but I'd really like to learn it.  Here is my first try at a plain character template.  I'm not sure I have much of a style, they wanted something of a cross between fft and disgaea , crits are welcome!

I just realized updates should go at top as well.

Here I fixed the perspective on the lineart. Mine is on the left, the right was used as a reference.

another update

Here is the latest color version, update coming soon.

latest version, I was told he looked too much like a boy, so i made him more serious and changed his hairstyle, I also fixed the legs which were bugging me.

and another after studying it some more.

mainly tried to fix the angle on his pauldron, maybe i can get some crits from another artist now.

all the programmers come to this forum looking for pixel artists, but what are some of the places
pixel artists solicit programmers.  Is this a fairly regular ocurrence?

thanks, just curious

General Discussion / I Have returned! and boy do I miss pixelling
« on: November 23, 2006, 07:17:39 pm »
I'm back! :D Those who remember me, probably remember my RTS project last time I saw them.
Well, my computer crashed and needless to say I haven't been able to do much with it for the past
months until i could afford a new one. I love it btw.  So...voila! I'm back on the forums and ready to pixel once again.
I lost a ton of artwork that i haven't yet recovered  :'( , these images are just about all I have, since also seems to have
disappeared. ???

I'm having some fun with these new smilies, which are the best ones I've seen yet. Someone on here must have drawn them ;)

The project is reloaded and I never got to update those trees because we've changed the perspective, it will now be done in isometric. crits on terrain and the tree please, I included a shot from starcraft to demonstrate the perspective i'm shooting for, our colors are more saturated. Thanks.
