Pixel Art / Robotic Hula Dancer
« on: October 17, 2016, 12:22:44 am »

I've had the same avatar for years. The anti-aliasing on that thought bubble rode out the forum's entire loss and resurgence of theme color.

Anyway, I'm still enamored with the little guy, so I don't want him gone. His little skirt gave me the inspiration to make him dance!

Behold, iteration 1:

Not the prettiest.

Iteration 2:

Beautiful, isn't it? I very quickly remembered how important it was to make a few key frames.

Iteration 3:

The magic of a few good key frames makes all the difference. A nicer looking orange also helped. Progress, right?

Iteration 4:

Oops! I wanted to get fancy without putting in the extra work. Didn't work. He's ice skating! At this point, I tried to salvage it with an iteration 5. It only made the animation even worse, I got frustrated and let this piece rest for a few months.

Iteration 7 (the current one): Iteration 6 is too similar to really deserve a mention

What I'm currently working on:
  • General cleaning of the frames; trying to make sure things don't shrink or expand too much.
  • Not happy with every frame of his skirt.
  • I'll be messing with his body and head color some more.
  • I want his plume to be stiffer than his skirt.
Overall I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I want a second opinion before I start refining in earnest.

Pixel Art / Need some help with a tile set.
« on: June 02, 2013, 05:05:01 am »
It's supposed to be a kind of industrial super structure that has been all but abandoned on a mars-like planet. Like a derelict mining site or factory.

This is what I have do far. Obviously it's a wip, but I've been working and reworking it for like a month. I can't seem to get it right, and I'm at a loss. Where do I go from here?  :'( I feel like it needs more tiles or variety, but I don't know what to add or if I shouldn't worry about more depth or something.

Here's a mockup with an earlier iteration of my industrial tiles just so you know what I've got so far. Any comments on this is welcome too.

and here are the reference images I was given:

Pixel Art / Franko

Pixelation, meet Franko.



I'm relatively satisfied with the running animation. I'm sure there's a lot of room for improvement. The punch animation, however, still feels very wrong; and after tweaking the motion into the wee hours of the night, I'll present it to you guys.

Pixel Art / The Stare.
« on: July 05, 2012, 07:27:22 pm »
This is just for practice since I don't generally draw many faces. I'm trying to get that mistrusting, not quite a scowl, stare with this. I'm not sure if I accomplished that.

It's obviously still pretty WIPy, and I'm not sure if I want to render the hair or not. If not, I'll just make it the same color as the background.

Also, rim lighting! Does it look better this way?

Pixel Art Feature Chest / GR#053 - Lingerie? Really? - Anatomy, Pose
« on: June 09, 2011, 06:11:59 am »

It's obviously not finished, and I'll be dressing her in due time. I wanted to get the anatomy down before venturing into clothes land, so anything that I've screwed up yet? I'm not sure if I'm sold on my palette just seems off. I'm terrible with skin tones, so any critique would be much appreciated.

Pixel Art / Halp!
« on: January 09, 2011, 01:44:33 am »

So I have the time of my life trying to make faces this size. I just can't seem to get it quite right...she's supposed to have a little smile and a slightly seductive gaze. She's also supposed to look human. If anything else seems out of place please lemme know.

Pixel Art / See through.

Just practicing textures. Was it effective? I've never really tried to draw transparency, so any c&c would be very appreciated.

Pixel Art / A very sad robot.
« on: March 29, 2010, 01:11:30 am »

Very sad avatar to clarify. Broken hearted even. He's sad because he still looks like crap. Got any ideas on how to help him?  :'(

Pixel Art / I still hate girls.
« on: December 17, 2009, 07:55:46 pm »
...Ok, maybe not, but I hate trying to draw them.


It's less creative than what a brain-dead monkey could come up with, but it was more an exercise than real artistic project. I've never really pixeled anything from start to finish this size, so I thought it would be fun to try. The bigger I get, the more I notice how much more I really need to work on my fundamentals, and it might start bugging me enough to actually do some real studies. </3

Yeah, so now that I look at it on site, it looks more like a supermodel photo shoot where the director wanted to create an "average girl" vibe. I really should try drawing a less perfect body sometime.

Second try:

Pixel Art / [WIP] Lil' portrait.
« on: November 07, 2009, 10:33:23 pm »
I almost never get anywhere with making a pixel portrait, but today I finally gritted my teeth and stuck with it. Surprisingly, it didn't turn out too bad.

And here's the ref. Is the likeness there? I don't want to start really refining it until I know she looks right, and I figured some impartial eyes would help with spotting the inconsistencies.
