Pixel Art / Reading Goatman
« on: September 26, 2015, 05:40:02 pm »
Looking for some helpful tips for my reading goat-dude.

Had problems specifically with the fur and shading.
Any and all help would be appreciated on the entire thing.

Pixel Art / [WIP] Progression of the Squid
« on: April 28, 2012, 07:38:51 am »

I did this in about 3 hours (trying very hard) although I would like to make the body / eye more interesting.
I feel like my shading needs improvements but after several attempts I just keep ending up back in the same spot.

I'm kind of proud of the tentacles because I think they look pretty cool :D  but would definitely like any and all criticism.

General Discussion / Help me find this image!
« on: April 08, 2012, 06:13:30 am »
From browsing this forum, I found an amazing work of art:   A happy robot stomping through the streets - while trying to catch an airplane.  Very nice colors and pixel work.
I used to have it as my desktop background, but since then, have upgraded from a crashed computer and now I can't find the image anywhere :(

Help me find it! Full image please?  I just want to sport it on my desktop!

Pixel Art / [WIP] Knife Icon
« on: December 02, 2011, 06:20:52 am »
It's been a while since I've been on the forums, and even longer since I've practiced pixels.

I'm making a knife icon for a video game. Here was my first attempt.

Then I tried to eliminate the black border in order to get more realism in the look.
Added a bit of shading and AA ?   I'm not sure if I did the anti-aliasing correctly, though.

I would like some help on how to make the knife look more real and professional? for lack of a better word.
Thanks :)

**EDIT** by the way, what happened to the forum? It looks generic..

Pixel Art / [WIP] Smokestacks
« on: October 21, 2010, 06:18:47 am »
Alright, so I've been working on a small project for a while.
I took a picture of some smokestacks a while back and now
I'm just trying my best to pixelate it.

I'm really not good at this, so after a couple of hours, here's my results...  :-[

I tried taking it a step further, but I'm afraid this only shows my true lack of skill.

I would appreciate some tips or constructive criticism. Thanks

Pixel Art / [WIP] Second Attempt
« on: August 08, 2010, 08:11:44 am »
Keeping with the vegetable theme, here's another try, but with Asparagus.

I had a hard time shading / coloring the stalk, but found this to be acceptable.

Constructive feedback is appreciated.
In case you're wondering, here is my reference photo.


Pixel Art / [WIP] My First Attempt at Pixelation
« on: August 05, 2010, 07:52:53 am »
Hello everyone,

I just joined yesterday. I have always been fascinated and inspired by the
SNES games I would play as a child, (mainly Secret of Mana) and finally found
a nice website and community to join to practice and hopefully improve my skills.

Enough intro.

Here's my very first attempt at this beautiful style of art.

I would like some info on what I did wrong, and different ways of making this look more professional.
Thanks in advance
