Understood! If the light source is directly to the right, then it is correct, am I rite?  :P

How do you go on about choosing the darker and lighter tones? I'm using photoshop and usually just color pick a tone close to the original color..

I'm still a newbie at pixel art, so take my critique with a grain of salt :)

I love the backgrounds, the simplified silhouettes are great! the clouds look more like fluffy mountains than clouds to my eyes :) Also the moon has a lot of detail compared to the other elements in the background, so to me it doesn't fit the style being so detailed :) It's very good looking tho!

about anims:
- What is the first guy doing? Crying? angry? tired? Maybe you could visualise it more with the eyes.
- I like the 2nd guy a lot.

hope this helps!

Caleb: This art is phenomenal! you inspire me to try my own hand at minimalistic animation :) Doom main char, April and Bebop are my favourites :D

only "crits" I can offer:
- turtles compilation could be smaller, then it would be easier to read imo.
- I don't like the flash in the sword animation, maybe you could replace it with a big swipe.

Charlieton: that animation is suuper cool.

Bulgin neck!  :y:

Yeah warmer tones I agree, but isn't that too much in your picture?

I didn't know that human heads are the same size :) I think a tleast the first guy's forehead is too small :)

I will return with an edit, thx!

Here's a quick edit with tones changed, I added some bulge in da neck and made the first guys head taller.

offtopic: Do you guys know how to disable the zoom smoothing in Google Chrome?

Pixel Art / [WIP] 3 faces

Hey all!

I made these 3 faces last night with a shooter game in mind. These are my very first "realistic" pixel images, I made them from scratch in the order of left to right.

- the one on the left is supposed to be your standard soldier/commando hero.

- guy in the middle is more bulky and I tried to get a sense of strength in him.

- last guy I wanted to be less muscular but still have strength, like a BEAR!

So, crits improvements etc are highly appreciated! I'm especially interested in how to get good skin tones/color. shading and anatomy advice is also welcome :)

First edit:
