General Discussion / Re: Read the Rules, then introduce yourself here.

Hi there! I'm Gonzalo.

I'm a programmer, but have been learning gamedev for a few years, which led me to pixel art (and animation).
I did some pixel art for games over at HomeTeam GameDev, and then decided to join Pixel Joint and Pixelation to get more specific feedback and hopefully improve my skills  :)

Pixel Art / Line Art Practice

Hi there!

I'm learning pixel art and I'm currently practicing line art.
One of the mini exercise projects I'm working on is drawing a horse, so I found this cartoon as a reference:

So, here's 4 passes inspired on the big horsey on the right (not trying to make an exact translation to pixels), before I got kind of blocked and didn't know how to improve on it (without adding color):

So, any feedback is welcome! I'm also wondering about:
  • Is the process right? Do you guys work in passes at all, or differently?
  • Is the face readable at all?
  • Should I not do line art in such a small canvas?
  • I had a hard time working with the hair, any tips on that?

Any comments are much appreciated, thanks!  ;D
