So, apparently my nes palette was all messed up. So here is the robots, but with the actual nes palette.

Pixel Art / Pixel Joint challenge entry [C+C]
« on: July 07, 2016, 03:02:56 am »
Hi everyone,

So, I am doing the Pixel Joint challenge of the week, and I wanted some critique on my entry in-progress. The challenge is to create an original character and at least 2 alternate palettes or costumes for it. Here is what I have created:

So, a couple of things. First I want to eventually not make the variations just color, so for example, make the green robot made of plant material, but still follow the base. Second, I am using the nes palette so, yeah. Also, I don't want to use the same color twice for the different variations, but I will if I feel it looks better. All help is appreciated!

From what I can tell about the arm is that the way she is holding the spear would put the spear right in front of her face, which doesn't make any sense. To fix this, make the arm that is holding the spear extended, so it looks more natural, and it makes her look more like a warrior.

Soooo, the cave seems really out of place and weird. It doesn't read much like a cave so I would suggest maybe trying something else to expand the painting. It looks great, but to just give some different ideas. The sunset could be improved, and to show you a different way of doing it, here is something that I did a while back:

I made the sunset in a more exaggerated way, but you could still do something similiar-ish. The way you have it now, the sun seems to be a separate floating object from the sky, so it looks like it's in front of the sky, when it should look like it's behind the sky. To do this, make the sun directly affect the sky, so they meld together more. Also the clouds right in front of the sun make the sun look a bit weird to me. But, other than that, it looks really good!

I had a lot of fun with this edit. But first, I will tell you what I did. So because this was a traditional lazer, or magic fight, I found a reference. I saw how they did things and what looked good, then I did my own thing. I tried to go with a fire vs water, but it turned out more just like two different types of beams. I think it helps just to be looser, more like when you are drawing. Anyway here it is, hopefully you can learn from it!

General Discussion / Re: Aphantasia - not having the "mind's eye"

I think its kind of weird, but for me it seems like I can imagine feelings better than I can imagine visual stuff. For example, I can imagine that I am falling, and I can feel like I'm falling, or I can imagine that I'm floating and it will feel like I actually am floating certain times. So, I wonder if different people are better with imagining different senses.

The blind drawing exercise I described seems to fit the general bill, actually (visualize+hold+draw). The blind part seems to be key -- I am gradually coming to think that at a base level I draw much better if I can't literally see anything at all while I have the pen down! Which is bizarre, but might be about visual feedback disrupting my own "visualization" + coordination process.
That actually makes a lot of sense, because when I'm laying in bed and its very dark where I can't really see anything, I have a very vivid imagination and a lot of times, I will think of characters, and their animations and stuff that I want to draw. It's also really cool because if I'm imagining something while I'm falling asleep I might have a lucid dream about what I'm imagining. Also one thing that I've done before is listen to music and close my eyes and imagine what I think the music would be in a visual form. I think I'm gonna try what you said about drawing with your eyes closed and see what the result is. I feel like it would be a good exercise for visualizing things while drawing.
