Pixel Art / RE4 Pixel Art (WIP)
« on: November 28, 2006, 11:16:26 pm »


This is really WIP, so please tell me how to improve. I really wanna get better. I'm unsure of how to go about adding highlights, and shading on the head is difficult. Feel free to edit my image.


Pixel Art / First Pixel Tree...C+C please!

I know it's small, but I have a tendency to draw things on a small scale. Makes it harder to find flaws that way. xD

Anyways, here:

From when I posted here before, I was urged to increase the contrast, so I did that here with the highlights on the leaves. They're a bright yellow.

So, C+C please!

Pixel Art / Help with tiles.
« on: November 27, 2006, 07:24:18 pm »
Alright, here's my problem. I'll create a tile like this one:

Looks fine as a single tile, right? (for the sake of this topic, let's say it looks fine. :P )

But when I line them up 2x2, it looks bad:

So, I guess I'm asking for help with making tiles transition into each other without being able to detect a lot of repetition.

Also, I need help with creating depth in tiles. Making the rocks look like they're kinda rising out of the ground...I really want to get better, so any and every peice of help is greatly appreciated. Feel free to edit my examples.

Pixel Art / The Executioner

I didn't contrast his shading and highlights enough, did I?

Pixel Art / Another pixel art-- definately better than the first!

I took most your guys' advice from the (First Pixel Art) topic I made, and kept them in mind as I pixelled THIS peice!

His name is Handy, he's one of my comic characters. He doesn't believe in drinking, smoking or sex. To most (if not all) of you, this guy seems like a total square. But that's just one of the traits that makes for wacky and creative humor in comics!

Ahem, that's aside the point.

I used dark colors for outlines, not black. Someone suggested to increase the contrast, and I did not do that because I wanted the shading to remain subtle, yet striking. That made no sense. n____n

HIS left hand (our right) is in a weird position. Other than that, I like how this particular peice turned out.

So, more criticism is appreciated!

Pixel Art / First Actual Pixel Art

Everyone's gotta start somewhere, first attempt.

I think I made his legs too short. :S

Just give me some good criticism, because I want to get better.

Pixel Art / Platformer Mockup
« on: May 14, 2006, 04:51:58 am »
First off: Hello people of pixelopolis! A friend referred me to this site for spriting ciriticism and help, I am! I like to sprite. :D

Anyways, I'm also learning to program, and people tell me that Platformer games are a great place to start with coding. So I made a mockup of what my game might look like. Tomorrow I'll make a sheet of sprites and tiles and then get back to learning code!

Without further ado, here it is.

I used crosshatch shading on the trees and clouds. The sun is supposed to portray a sort of "shiny glass ball" effect.

Your comments and criticism are appreciated!
