2D & 3D / Official Anatomy Thread
« on: June 23, 2008, 01:25:14 pm »
Hello and welcome to the official anatomy thread.  Many pieces posted in the pixel-art board seem to get repeated critique about flawed anatomy.  This thread is here to post your studies and progress in learning anatomy.

Learning anatomy can and should take years; you will become a better artist because of it.  After many anatomical failures with pixel-art I have taken to pencil sketching.  I recommend you do the same, as it is the most efficient and accurate way of practising.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Helm for his nagging to get me to begin this process :P, as well as his invaluable time helping me out.  Thanks Bro!

Now I would like to share with you the progress I have made in about a week.  Not only to get some more feedback, but also to inspire people.  I am by no means a good artist but I think there is definite progress in my work.  Study and practise are the keys.

Of course all of these arenít still there yet, but I am getting closer, and I can see where Iím going wrong.

I have gathered quite a lot of resources, mainly from Helm, Ptoing and Google images.

I think it is probably best to begin with the human skeleton: URL removed ("dead" link) -Crow

Followed by a few technical diagrams: URL removed ("dead" link) -Crow

And finally photo reference:  URL removed ("dead" link) -Crow

Hopefully this thread will help people improve their anatomy sketching, and will share with us their progress.

I thought it'd be cool to see what kinda music everyone listens to.  Although i highly suspect most are into the metal (me included)

Top 5 Bands (at this point in time) :
- 3 Inches of Blood
- Machine Head
- Devildriver
- Nile
- As Blood Runs Black

3 Best Live Acts:
- Trivium
- Bullet For My Valentine
- Enter Shikari

Most Played Song:
Down, Blink-182

What are you musical tastes and what are good live bands you've seen?

thought i'd post a pic in its very earliest stages and get some critique on the very basics (anatomy/depth/composition/colors?) before i do anything else and then have to redo things over.

palette inspired heavily by adarias.

all feedback appreciated.

Pixel Art / Forest Minesweeper Mockup
« on: January 07, 2008, 05:06:20 pm »
I wanted to re-invent the old windows minesweeper game with a theme of sorts...

i also wanted to give it little bit of kenneth-fejer style/feel...

this has probably taken about 3 hours so far... and i plan to make a few more screens (eg.. gameover, start screen and maybe another level with a different theme :) )

EDIT: oh yeah its supposed to be for mobile phones...

Resources / Pixelation : Top Threads
« on: September 04, 2007, 08:11:51 pm »
I've been browsing this forum for a long time now and here are a collection of threads that I feel many people can benefit from, divided into different topics for easy use.  Of course these are selected by my personal choice, but I tried to list the ones that show lots of explanation and knowledge combined with tasty pixelled goodness.  Enjoy:

Sprites / Animation
Walk animation, tweening, "ease"
"WayForward Contest #2: Sprite modelling"
Walk animation, tweening, "ease"
Mage Knight - general animation, effects
Partisan Tactics Battles - isometric animation - I have Learned a lot from this thread! Good luck Adarias and Fil

"WayForward Contest #3: Background artist (tiling)"
"Video Tutorial about platform tiles" - last post holds working link

Pixel Technique

"Choosing colors and pallettes"
"Generic 16 color palette" (Arne's palette)

C64 palette

Anatomy This is not a specific anatomy forum, and I didnt see the point in listing a hundred Helm paint-over threads.
Various pointers
Female anatomy - good ol' helm again
Indigo's anatomy tutorial - Not brilliant anatomy but a good read

Other Just a few threads that I particularly like.
Low-poly models with pixel art textures
Post-your-favourite thread
Gunfire animation - this piece has always just been on my mind

Software Any thread about software, will ultimately end with "Cosmigo's Promotion"...
"MS Paint Poll"
"About Pro Motion"
Discussion about different software

Contra 4
"Is pixelling as art dead in games?"
"Some queries about short deadline game creation"

Interesting Reads Far more of these than I expected.  Just generally interesting discussions from the past that might serve as a 5 minute coffee break read.
"What got you into Pixel Art?"
"Hobby art vs Production art"
"Palette/Size/Tile Restictions on Contemporary Pixel Art"
"Actual impact of Video Games"
"i think im stuck at my current pixel skill level"
"Pixel school"
"Where do you want to be in 5 years - artistically and professionally?"
"Pixelartist salary?"
"Pixel talk" - terminology

Obviously these are just a handful of the wonderful threads that make up pixelation.  The search bar is your friend.

Ps. If you find any topics you think are worthy of this thread, please PM me or a Mod.
