Pixel Art / Hydra favicon
« on: February 26, 2014, 12:44:24 pm »
Hello! I am trying to make a cool favicon based on the which is a green monster with several heads.
It looks pretty boring and flat right now, and I am wondering if you have any suggestions on how to improve it?

Since it is a favicon, it is 16px * 16 px.

Pixel Art / Logo to pixelart
« on: September 13, 2013, 08:46:46 am »
Hello! I have made a logo for my website using Inkscape (vector art), and then a friend used Photoshop to draw a grey outline between the letters
in the text. Now this isn't pixel art, yet. I want to pixelate this. I am bad at making shapes and forms, so I have used Inkscape for that. It makes it
easy to copy and paste and resize objects.

I know this isn't pixelart yet, but I am looking for advice on what to do to make it look more old school. For example, I want to round the corners
on the grey background lines, and I was thinking I could maybe make some texture on it too, to make it glass-like, perhaps? Ideas?

General Discussion / Animation
« on: July 30, 2010, 09:16:03 pm »

I have been pixelling a bit with an ancient version of Photoshop (6.0) and Grafx2... but they don't support animation,
so I am wondering if there is something similar and easy to use that I can download. Perhaps this belongs to another
section, but I couldn't find any that fits better.

I want to make games, so eventually I will have to learn how to animate my characters.

Pixel Art / Mossy stone head

Hello. I've been trying to pixel without much success. This is my third attempt...

I always get stuck at this point, and I'm not sure what I can do to make it look good.

It's based upon the stone statue of Salasar Slytherin from the first Harry Potter movie:

I am trying to learn how to pixel because I love pixelated art, and it reminds me of the games I used
to play when I was a kid. I've been lurking around here for a while, but I haven't been making a lot of stuff
on my own (it always ends up looking horrible, and I give up). However, I recently made a logo for my webpage
using Inkscape (it's not pixel art), and now I have decided to pixel on top of it. I like its shape very much, but
the bad anti-aliasing is terrible, and it isn't very focused. Here's what I have:

I'm wondering if any of you have some good references/examples to draw inspiration from, and whether you have
some tips for this sort of task. Is it a bad idea to pixel on top of an image?

Thanks in advance!

General Discussion / Palette
« on: March 11, 2010, 06:37:38 pm »
Hello. I just started pixelling, and I'm wondering if there's some place where I can use palettes from?
I'm not sure if it's a good idea to just use someone else's palette without their permission... What is the
common etiquette here? Everything I make looks ugly, since I'm a beginner, but also because I have
problems finding the right colors. With a bit of help with that, I think I can find more motivation.

Pixel Art / [WIP] Avatar, hand!

Hello again!

I need an avatar, so I started drawing a hand... eventually it's supposed to come out of the ground,
looking veiny and evil and all that.

Hello everyone!

I have been reading this forum for a while, and I am amazed at all the great things
people have done here. I'm mainly a programmer, but I thought I would give this a try.

Here's how far I've come. My problem is that I don't know where to go from here,
even though I realize that it looks absolutely horrible. Tips are very welcome!
