Portfolios / Zachary James, inexpensive artist looking for work!
« on: April 05, 2010, 06:24:30 am »
Hey, my name is Zachary James. I've been doing pixel art for almost two years and would love to gain more experience in freelance. I'm extremely cheap, reliable and offer decent quality work. Most of my experience comes for top-down games and tiles, however I'm willing to work at anything. My style consists of mostly simplistic work, though I'm capable of being flexible with the look of my pixels.

Example of my Work:

Plenty more where that came from! Check out my Pixel Joint gallery:


As I said, I'm very inexpensive. I prefer being paid per sprite/artwork and am willing to hear how much you think I'm worth and how much you'd be willing to pay. I only use Western Union as a payment method.

Pixel Art / [WIP] Rock Giant Thing...
« on: March 29, 2010, 05:29:37 am »
There is so much I dislike about it, but I don't want to give up on this piece.   :-[

I'm just wondering if anyone has any constructive criticism they'd like to give me on how to improve it. As you can see, the bottom-half of the giant is not yet completed, mostly because I have no clue how to work out the structure on the legs nor feet. The grass and tree will come after the monster is finished. I also need some help with a better more vibrant palette choice and especially the right hand (The current hand is only a place holder, I do realize it's extremely ugly) of his which I can't seem to get to look right. Thanks in advance.  :crazy:

Pixel Art / (WIP) Man on a Steep Hill
« on: December 17, 2009, 12:39:23 am »
Need some advice on this piece that is more or less finished, but a new set of eyes could improve it. Basically, it's a man on a steep hill with a branch in his hand which relates to the name "King of the Hill".

What I need help with is the background, reducing colours (If possible) and any other nitpicks that you may have with this pixel. Any help is appreciated very much.

Pixel Art / WIP - Isometric Game Tileset - In need of some help
« on: June 13, 2009, 09:51:21 pm »
Hello guys.. Anyways, I've been working on isometric tiles for a future game, but I keep getting into tons of problems. The language I want to use for it is Game Maker, however, I'm totally unsure how pixeling tiles for isometric games work.
I'm going to use a 32x16 grid to do these as well. Basically, I'm unsure on how the debth works. You have a tile that is higher then the rest, what do you do? Add some pixels to the bottom?
I have been looking at tons of examples, I'm just not sure what to do. I'll show you what I have now.

As you can see, my tiles don't fit on the game maker grid. But before, when I put them down into game maker, they did. I'm totally lost . Could anyone just teach me how these work?. Thanks.. I'll also keep on updating as I learn. I posted this on the pixeljoint forums as well - I really need help.  :(

Pixel Art / A game I'm working on... Need help, please.
« on: March 17, 2009, 07:22:20 pm »
Hey, I'm working on this 2d platform game, and I'm stuck with my character at the momment. I've done some animations, but stopped incase he doesn't look pleasing. Before I continue further, I'd like to know how I would go about animating him with those short stubby legs, and the perspective that he is in..? I wanna keep the shape and concept, but what could I do to make him look better? Also, I need help with a few other things, which I'll post afterwards. Thanks guys -
(Sorry about the background, I don't know how to make it trans as I'm using MSpaint.. Some of the colours were taken off of a mario piece done by an artist on PJ, I believe it was this one -

Will post more soon. :)

Hey, just gotta say that I love almost every single artwork here. Your all so talented.
I need help with a few sprites I'm working on for a game. There of a cow:

I need some tips and help on nice colours (Colour reference was taken on a art piece in PJ, not sure what it was called but it's also of a cow saying "Hey kid, I'm not a cow", walk cycle and how to make the cow look "better". Please help me, I will take any advice.
