General Discussion / Pixel Art Shortfilms
« on: June 20, 2012, 12:07:31 pm »
Hi there,

i'm looking for some inspiration for a short film project i am planning (as my final exam at university). Since I was drawn to pixel art personaly my whole life AND my current shortfilm project, which is done in 3D, is a pain in the ass, I consider doing something with pixels next time.

My question: I'm looking for references. Films done in pixelart (like for instance Paul Robertson does) or pixel art games which have nice movie sequences in them or whatsoever. Plus I am looking forward to a possible discussion about this somehow unusual combination of pixel art and movies.

Thank you. :)

Pixel Art / Character Template (RPG)
« on: June 14, 2008, 07:36:27 pm »
Hi there,

although I have been pixeling for quiete a long time now, this is my first serious attempt at a person in the typical rpg-perspective. I have noticed that in most rpgs the characters (and especially horizontally walking ones) look like they were visualized in a side-view perspective. Have you ever noticed how many RPG-Maker sprites are used in fanmade platform games? :D So I tried to figure out, how to get the authentic look of a character seen from an 45 angle. And here it is:





And here is my problem. :yell: I want this one not to look like a platform guy, but I have some trouble with the feet. I hope you have some advice for me.  ;D

Pixel Art / Odem Forest - The Chronicles
« on: March 19, 2008, 03:12:33 pm »
Hi there,

my name is Thomas, I'm from germany and this is my first post on pixelation.

I want to present a project to you which I'm working on as a pixel artist. It goes by the name of "Odem Forest" and is supposed to be a jump'n'run rpg, released chapter by chapter, in order to prevent us (my friend the programmer :P and me) from cancelling the project due to motivation problems - hopefully a good plan  ;D Therefore the subtitle "The Chronicles".

Well, here are some examples to show you what I have done so far.


The characters so far: Jonas' grandfather, Jonas' grandmother, Jonas' mother, Jonas himself, the hero of our game, some enemies including: bow and arrow goblin, normal goblin, knife throwing goblin, the first midboss, and some friends of Jonas': Lyn and three guys who don't have names yet. And don't mind that sign standing around between the goblins  :crazy:

This is a mockup showing the forest, the first episode mainly takes place in. You can also see some parts of the interface.


This screen shows the beach in front of Jonas' house, where he is living with his mum and his grandparents.


I hope my english is understandable. Any advice on improving is much appreciated. If you want to, you may think about names for the three guys on the right side.  ;D
