Pixel Art / [WIP] OH SHI-!
« on: January 17, 2011, 05:54:00 pm »
I'm working on something for this week's challenge on pixeljoint:
A year ago we did hands, now it's time to draw feet. As per the hands challenge, the foot/feet need to be the main focus of the piece. Also, only human feet and no socks/shoes/other footwear - just a bare foot (or feet). Have fun and don't forget creativity.

Canvas Size - Max 170 x 170.
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - No.
I think the feet is okay, but I'm not sure about the poop.
I'm not really used to work on this kind of things (I've pretty much only done RPG stuff so far), so I'd like some critics/advices please! :p


Pixel Art / [WIP] RPG Stuff
« on: December 05, 2010, 07:20:25 pm »
I'm trying to make some things for a RPG mockup, and I'd like to have some critics on this. For now it's just grass, a tree and a character:

Two versions just for the grass colors, I'm not really sure which ones I should use.

Here's an older version for the tree (I was told this one was better, but I'm not really sure):

I'm pretty satisfied with what I got with the grass tile (I could eventually add some grass tiles, too), but I'm really not so sure about the tree... I read a lot of stuff on trees (st0ven's topic helped a lot, thanks!) and I understand how it works, but still I'm not satisfied with this tree... Any advice/edit would be really appreciated, as I don't really want to work on other tiles before this tree looks good enough!

Pixel Art / [WIP] RPG Pirate sprite

Hi there, first time posting here after being advised to come here if I needed help.
I'm a beginner with pixels and have a lot of trouble doing some stuff. Right now I'm having trouble coloring a pirate for a RPG.

Just so you know, I did only the colouring, the template was kindly shared by green raven (
So, first of all, I made the front view and here's what I have so far : (Ah, looks like the shadow below the guy didn't make it with the animated gif)

(Yeah, he's a kind pirate)
So my problem with it, I guess, is coming from the hair. I tried for hours to have nice shadows and highlights, but I'm not entirely satisfied. Also, I'm not really sure there's enough contrast with the cloths.

Here's the non animated version + the start of the side view (I'd need help on the hair here too, I'm just lost here :p) :

So... Here. If you have ANY advice I would gladly try my best to improve this little guy. Thanks!

EDIT1 : Deleted a few colors

EDIT2 : I upped the contrast of the belt (well, I tried to at least :p), changed the shirt so that it doesn't give the feeling I mirrored it (not sure if I'm satisfied with it though) and tried to clear the hair next to the eye patch.
