Pixel Art / [WIP] Badass Sprite
« on: December 18, 2009, 03:48:50 pm »
This is a character for a mario-style platform game, the kung-fu guy was just used as proportion ref.

Crit away, he's still looking pretty rough around the edges  :crazy:

General Discussion / pixelled sprites vs pre-rendered CGI sprites
« on: March 22, 2009, 02:28:06 pm »
Hey guys, I'm writing an essay about why the blending of 2d and 3d sometimes works and sometimes doesnt, and I've got onto the subject of pixel art.

What i'm basically arguing is that 2D pixelled sprites are better than pre-rendered CGI sprites because the artist is essentially working in the base medium.

i.e if your working with pixels then it makes sense to be able to control each individual one, as opposed to letting the renderer decide for you.

Can anyone think of some good examples to back this up, I'm basically looking for a 2D pixelled sprite and a pre-rendered CGI sprite of similar sizes

to show the difference in clarity between the 2 mediums.

Any suggestions or ideas are muchly appreciated  :D

Pixel Art / [WIP] Laughing Cavalier Sprite

Hello all. I'm hoping to get this fella finished for the pixeljoint comp, but with deadlines looming that could be a problem.

But hell I'll give it my best shot. Here's the original painting by Frans Hals, if you don't recognise it;
and here's my rough WIP, which will have a simple 2 frame laughing animation.

I don't have a clue how I'm gonna do the various patterns and colours on his clothing, any suggestions would be very welcome

Hey guys, this is just an idea I came up with ages ago for a 2d beat em up/platformer. He's basically your generic old master type.

Hello all,

I've just got in to pixelling, and these are my bestest pieces so far...

(He's supposed to be a blue giant built into a fortress)

(I'm probably gonna do his body as well, I nabbed the palette from the gameboy de-make mock-up thingy)


any critique would be just dandy. I really wanna try and improve these 2 fellas  ;)
