Pixel Art / Re: Have you seen the Yellow Sign?

I dunno what your eye shape is like, but I really doubt it is like that.  There is way too much of a straight line on the eye lids.  And if you look at your image and imagine what the eye balls would look like if you had no eye lids, those things would be friggen huge!

Here is a quick edit:

  or opened a bit: 

Maybe not your eyes, but a little more realistic looking yeah?  The eyes you gave yourself make you look like an alien or an anime character.

yeah it definitely reminds me of some of the experiments we did with our Munsell books in color theory class.  Hmm I'll definitely have to try doing one of these.  I'm still really crap at picking colors and making them work.  Your result here is very nice.  Good work.  The eyes are really bringing it down though.  They look like how people draw eyes before they learn to draw eyes.  Too bright as someone else pointed out.  And don't really look spherical, unnatural eyelid shape.  Also too big.  Just my opinion, they could use some love.  The rest of the face is pretty realistic and it makes those eyes really stand out as odd.

Seriously this is very fun to look through.  His corpse paint really looks all nasty and sweaty.  Dig the cartoonyness.  And the texuring or whatever it would be called.  The green in the skin tones is nice because it compliments the reddish colors in the skin.  Setting complimentary colors against each other in flesh helps round out the form.  Now you just need to finish him and give him two sidekicks.  Quit this artsy fartsy whining.  This behavior is not very tr00. 

google "black metal apricots" and watch the video if you haven't seen it already.  +5 Inspiration.

In an alternate dimension, the Germans made helicopter U-boats for teh win.

Was going to try animating the propellers and making it bob up and down but couldn't figure out animation in photoshop and its time for bed.

Proportions look ok, if you intended her to be a taller person.  Her ribcage seems to be missing though.  Legs could stand to be in a more dynamic pose, right now shes looking like a carboard cutout leaned against a wall rather than a person.  The lack of shading/volume of course lends to this but I suspect the legs are adding to it as well.  Hard to tell.  Not much to say about it at this point.  No need to post the progress pics.

hmm I never noticed any problems with the mods.  But I guess I may have already been pretty faded away from pixelation by whatever time that people are talking about.  And I'm not out to fight the system like a lot of artsy people seem to be.  Remember, this is an art form.  Art attracts crazy personalities.   ;)  And it flat out just doesn't matter what you do you can't please everyone.  I can't really make any suggestions on how things should be run, because with every idea I can see how it would piss some people off.  Like for me personally, I got bored with pixelation when people seemed to just stop caring.  You had a lot of people coming in who weren't very good at pixeling and/or didn't take it seriously, the boards seemed swamped with little doodads that looked like the person spent maybe 5 minutes on it.  I got tired of looking at lower quality work to put it bluntly.  Not that I think there should be a skill level requirement or anything.  Anything that bears the Pixelation name should be all about helping people become better pixelers, no matter what their skill level is.  The first incarnation of Pixelation was where I learned to pixel, I sucked, and I still suck, but I try and when I post something its not just for asspats.  But there were so many posters that would blow off critique with "yeah ok ill do that on my next piece"  or "thats just my style"  or whatever.  If you don't want to try new things and learn from others you shouldn't post in Pixelation IMHO.  Its not show and tell for asspats.  There were also lots of early WIPs and sketches and things.  No one wants to see that.  Put in the effort to get the thing somewhat finished.  You'll get nowhere fast being timid wanting someone to hold your hand all the way through.  Dive in, sweat, bleed, then post for critique.  Then do it all again.  As big as Pixelation became, it was just ridiculous to have these things being posted.  I think when a forum gets as big as Pixelation was, you have to start enforcing some sort of quality level.  Not based on skill, but effort.  Which is friggen hard to measure.  So there will always be disputes.  I'm actually amazed at how organized and high quality is.  I'm sure the mods over there have gotten into quarrels with people by policing those boards however they do.  They actually enforce skill level now for the main board though, which makes sense for them, but I think is out of place with Pixelation.  But whenever a community reaches a certain size, someone has to keep order somehow, and they cant be too elastic.  Of course many people would think my point of view is "fricken fascist maaan".  Thats just the way it goes.   :)

Background looks nice, if a bit monotone.  I think you went overboard with the sparkles.  Try less and/or not so bright.  The characters don't match the perspective of the background or even each other, and they completely ignore the lighting, so they look tacked-on.  Make your own characters or draw your own version of these characters.  Even just two silhouettes would work.
