2D & 3D / [ Traditional ][ WIP ] Yggdrasil
« on: February 28, 2019, 08:07:37 am »
Decided to take a break from pixel art and get back into traditional drawing a bit, as well as study a bit.

Here's my take on Yggdrasil from Norse mythology.
Pencils used:
  - 2B

  • There isn't really a specific light source as I was mostly focused on bringing out the details on the bark with shading. With that said I will try to implement a specific light source and overlay shading and highlights.
  • The original image was higher res than the post so had to reduce the resolution, hope not a lot of details was lost. ( Here is the original )

Pixel Art / [Feedback] [CC] [WIP] Experimenting with new style for Tiles
« on: December 21, 2018, 09:48:50 pm »
As said in the title, experimenting with a different style. ( Not claiming that I'm inventing/creating a style, just experimenting, new meaning new for me )

Here is the tileset:

Here is the mock-up:

  • Does it tile well?
  • Are Stone/Sandstone ( Other as well ) tiles too noisy, especially stone tiles with moss?

Aside from these all feedback and cc are very welcome!
Thank you!

Pixel Art / Critique for an Old Column
« on: November 03, 2018, 04:42:16 pm »
Hello, I decided to do yesterday's theme for Pixel Dailies for twitter, the theme was "column". Here is my entry and some points I would like to check, aside from that any feedback is welcome, thanks.

Image used for Twitter:

Image used during the initial to final phase of the drawing:

Point for critique:
  • Was dithering overdone or underdone, and was it done in a correct way?

  • I ended up using layers with dropped down opacity for shadows beneath the plants.
  • Background Sky was done last so least effort went in it as I was already few hours in it and it was late so I was exhausted.

Pixel Art / [CC] [WIP] Forest Tile Set
« on: July 04, 2018, 11:02:19 am »
Hello, I'm Joan.
I am new to the Pixelation forums, so hello there, it's nice to meet everyone. Introductions aside, I have been working on a Tile Set with Forest theme. I am using Dawnbringer's 32 color palette:

Tile Set:

Birch Tree is still WIP, still figuring out how I want to make the treetop look.
I have made 3 variations of patterns for details below the surface of the tiles but still, don't know what to do with that region.

Also, here is a mock-up, it's still WIP, and I haven't considered level-design a lot when I was making it.

My questions:
  • Should I make grass tiles have all 8 directions or leave it with top 3?
  • What could I do to improve the water tiles, I will animate them at a later date, as well as am I missing some?

Aside from that, any other criticism is welcome.
Thanks in advance!  :)
