Pixel Art / [WIP] Chubby Wizard
« on: December 22, 2009, 03:12:45 am »
For my second character I've been working on this little wizard.
He's still in need of shading and highlighting. I'm just posting him to encourage myself to keep practicing and building up on my sprites :)

I'm going to try foreshortening the staff in a frame to give him the appearance of casting a spell with that as well. I guess I'll see how that works out. :)

C&C welcome.

At rest:


edit: typo fix

Pixel Art / [WIP] Square Jawed Character
« on: December 16, 2009, 08:50:24 pm »
Hi all :) My first post. Whee.

My previous forays into pixel art were just some prototype/placeholder stuff for an iphone game, which were then handed off to an artist to actually make real art from using the dimensions. But I wanted to be able to actually put the characters I see in my head on the screen, so it's time to learn the skills myself.

Here's my first character attempt. I didn't use any reference art, just did the outline pixel by pixel in black until I had roughly what I wanted and then started filling and adding highlights/shadow.

I think I need to kill the highlight on (his) left leg, and do something about the speckling I made to break up (his) right arm. Maybe some gradient to shadow. And I either need to find a better blue for those pants or dither them so they don't pop as much.

Opinions welcome :
