Thanks, I did the IMG tags.  It's been a while since I posted and I forgot the formatting.

Looks like you forgot the image? ???

Whoops!  I fixed it, sorry about that.  Thanks for letting me know!

I don't have much critique, but it looks great.  Nice character design! 

The only thing I can see is that the smoke from the exhaust looks off.  I see implied speed lines on the tires, if the motorcycle is in motion, the exhaust wouldn't be going straight up.  If it's setting still there wouldn't be implied speed lines.  It's a minor gripe, and probably not that relevant overall.  It would probably be hard to imply exhaust any way other than vertical being that close to the edge of the piece.

Just a little Powerpuff Girl pixel art I thew together this morning. I made Blossom first and used her as a template for Bubbles and Buttercup. I tried to give them their own personality and style with minimal changes to the template. 10 colors counting the background color.

That's it!  Thanks a ton.   :)

I remember a pixel art program a member here was creating about 6 months ago. It looked very promising, but I can't remember what it was called or who the person making it was. Does anyone remember this or have any info on it?

I remember it had a very impressive rotation tool.

Seems like 90% of the images in these threads have long since vanished :(

Perhaps this list is due for a refresh?

Try using to see cached pages, most of the images are stored there.

I wanted to add that these threads have really helped me grasp a lot of concepts, especially clusters:

Some of this stuff I was starting to do anyway, seeing it presented and discussed in these threads really helped get some more of the theory of why certain things look good.  If you wan't to delve a bit deeper these are a great start.  If anyone knows any similar threads I would be very interested in reading them.

I thought I would update you on my progress.  This is still very much a WIP.  I have been very busy IRL and had no time to work on this.  I had been working on it on my tablet using isopix pro (great program btw) and lost my tablet.  Anyway, I found it.  This is what I have done so far.  I feel that something just isn't right about the lighting but it's getting there.


I think that looks really good.  I am surprised that changing the outline color had that much effect.

So I have been working on this.  I am finding it hard to add the shading without just copying what you did knite.  Haha your "quick" edit is quite nice!  I did decide to redo his mouth.  I have been thinking about how a person (or a mean dog etc) would look and how facial muscles would look in a snarl.  I am trying to work it to show some "gums" above the teeth.  Making him in a snarling pose is more dynamic and puts a lot of emotion into the image.  I also decided to add some little nubby arms in.

It's sort of funny because I didn't realize how much you should understand anatomy and things like facial expressions for pixel art.  I guess that was me being naive, obviously its a form of art so most art rules would apply.

Edit: I still haven't got the shading and such, but I fixed the teeth and facial structure.  I am still not satisfied with it, but I have to go to work soon, so this is my stopping point for now:
