Pixel Art / [WIP] Old mouse character
« on: January 09, 2017, 11:01:38 pm »
Here's a quick doodle I did just for some practice:

I started off with just drawing random lines on a page, which ended up looking a little bit like a mouse's head and went from there. If it's not clear, it's supposed to be an old mouse in a ragged cloak wearing a scarf, with both of his hands on top of a cane. The hands were one of the trickiest bits.

I'd like to improve the shading whilst not increasing the colour count (I'm using the EDG32 palette, or some of it at least). I think there's definitely scope for making the subject more obvious, but I'm not sure how to proceed. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm the creator of a pixel art app called Pixaki. I'm working on a new version, and I have some questions about how things in the app should behave, so I thought "those Pixelation people seem nice, and clearly know a lot about pixel art, maybe I should ask them"  :)

A big new change I'm making is the option to have indexed colour mode documents. The app supports layers, and at the moment it's possible to adjust the opacity of a layer, and then merge it down, which obviously has the potential to produce a whole load more colours. So I thought that maybe in indexed colour mode there should be no semi-transparency in the layers or the selected colours, but in RGBA mode people can do what they like. Does that make sense? Would it be annoying to not be able to adjust a layer's opacity when working with indexed colours, or is that what you'd expect?

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks for your time,
