I started to give the hair a major overhaul. I just fear I have to cover most of the S-Mart tag if I'm gonna make the hair more Army of Darkness like. Other thing I think I have to do is sharpening out the face contours a bit more again

figured you guys would be interested in this dev's site, some really awesome stuff there, so many canceled projects that had such high potential and passion  :(
this amiga game in particular will hopefully pique your interest  ;D
Damn, this is some incredibly amazing pixelart. Also interesting that he used some of the tricks I use so many years ago, like pixeling over 3d models an pictures. Very inspirational! Also I've never seen such beatiful animated water ever before

I made a quick edit based on the assumption the windows won't be transparent.

I edited the frame a bit to reduce the pillowshading and to make it fit the lightsource more.
Also increased the shine on the window to make it look more like glass, though it's far away from perfect^^'
As for the colours. The similiar saturation of the greys and greens makes the moss on the walls a bit hard to see. I'd experiment a bit with some colour shifting

Something I started a few hours ago.
Not sure if I should go for full colors or monochrome, but at the moment it's easier for me to just focus on the contrasts

I'll continue it tommorow as I'm much too sleepy now^^

EDIT: Some more progress. A friend lamented the lack of boomsticks. It also looks like I'm going to use few more colors now

2D & 3D / Re: Wings3D Help!

I'm using Wings3D myself and as the OP mentioned there are hardly any 3D tools that let you see results this quick just after starting.
Those tutorials were quite helpful for me back then.
In terms of tutorials regarding the actual modelling process, I suppose most basic modeling tutorials should work to get a hang of how to utilize your shapes and finding a workflow that works for you.
I hardly need 3Dmodels myself, so my skills with it are pretty basic. Usually I use it to create some basic 3D models when I try to make something with a prerendered look.
Also, one major feature that seems to be missing in Wings in the ability to add textures to models
Actually Wings supports UV mapping, but you can't use textures smaller than 128x128 and they're always filtered.

As for Blender: I tried it several years ago, when everything was right click based. It confused the hell out of me,
but it suppose I should give it another try, as Wings lacks some functions that would make modelling a lot easier

Here's the original lineart
Originally the pic wasn't even meant for pixelart, but I needed a more or less fresh pic for a tutorial I made for this years SAGE.
I still want to colour the original, though bg painting gives me a hard time^^'

@Surt: Indeed, pretty awesome tilesets :3 Those grey bg patterns are really cool

Hi, I'm DerZocker from Germany.
I've been lurking around for several years, created an account few months ago and finally thought why not start posting?^^
Anyway, I'm spriting for quite a few years. (started editing RM2k graphics around 2001) Usually I hang around the HG101, Multimediaxis and Sonic-United boards and my main interests are drawing, spriting, anime and cartoons of the 80's and 90's (especially those done by TMS) as well as collecting old games.
I'm also involved in the creation of Sonic Time Twisted, where I help out with tiles, cutscenes and other varous other graphics.
Here's my dA page
besides my pixelstuff there are also drawings, GunPla and other random stuff I made.
Dunno what else to tell, so well... Hiho, guys!^^
