Pixel Art / Re: Simple rock
« on: June 12, 2017, 03:47:38 am »
If I could hopefully add insight.

In my personal opinion and as a critique there is absolutely nothing wrong with working small. :y: especially with a rock.

Though sometimes you do need to push yourself to bigger proportions and challenge yourself! So I advise after this to go to bigger sizes and out of your comfort zone.

@Iharoon your rock reminded me of Pokemon rocks in the Diamond,Pearl and Platinum series and in fact many of the rocks has the same width and height.


Look specifically at these rocks on the sprite sheet, although alot of the rocks personally in my taste are a bit dull. Shown below are rocks made by about the same pixel width and height like yours Iharoons.

I think your rock is just fine being that size however, your rock looks more like a pebble than a rock. So with my edit below I showed and added more cracks or texture to the rock to make it more like a rock and less like a pebble.

In my example I have based my palate based off your base color which uses a de-saturated red. In addition the shading is based going up the color spectrum and overall maintaining warm colors with high contrast in order to make it pop.

With sprites this small you need major hue shifts sometimes in order to make it stand out and also not make it dull. Which unfortunately your rock is and it doesn't look very lively.

However, your rock is not all that bad! its a very good attempt if its your first :) I can also see you understand light source so kudos to you!

I hoped this helped!  ::)

I went to do a black and white head study-

then halfway I had trouble so I blocked half of the face sketch then I literally just painted half of a face and was like-

"Yeah it'll be alright." :y:

This isn't the original size but yeah ^^; hopefully it shows improvement.
I wanna study a whole bunch this summer, so next should be a weak point which is arms.

Tried to make shading more interesting. As well as some things,as well,as an alternative.

Any advice? The 2nd alternative is just a darker version and if no changes should be made I'll most likely use this since it looks more interesting than the egg I posted earlier.

I made some edits to the lineart as well.

You are correct  :)
But for future reference also- the dark red you mentioned. While that is correct, the darker red in order to make it you move down the color wheel shown here to a more purple (although not a whole bunch, it honestly depends on what color scheme you want..) so I understood where you were going with the purple ^^

@odedrt19 also good job with your circle also, I love the back light especially  :)

Oh, I just saw your edit! it looks so much better  :y:

Hey! First of all I give you props for taking this path and giving this a shot.  :y:

Second, the hue change rule is usually the go to when you want to shade something. I know its very important for me because I use it for my art pieces
and pixel art pieces. I'd highly recommend studying all about color fundamentals that way you can understand more about how color works!

Now with your circle you went with the right approach with colors going for a purple for shadows and then orange for highlights. However, in terms of applying it the purple is way too light for a shadow and the highlight at the very end looks noisy and out of place for a piece so small. I wouldn't recommend dithering for a piece this small.
The shadings a bit off, but I can tell still what lighting it was going for.

Here I did a quick edit of the circle to show you

A simple circle,but notice how the light source is set up and the colors I used.

I know this is months late but-
I'm super proud looking back onto this and re-working and I'm amazed at the progress i've made too- well art in general and this egg.

I've been super busy, but I wanted to post some progress and hopefully a critique as well.  :lol:

I tried my best to shade it and made it look like a nice ol fried egg.

Lol im so sorry for being gone so long but heres an update-

@Runensucher Thanks a whole bunch, I still need to do the egg white, but i've been off and on this pixel egg for weeks with school and all.
I went by with what you said to lose up my outline, took a look at pixel art references and studies and then everything seemed to click.

how does it look so far?
egg-mazing right?

Felt too dull in shadow and incorrect shading again so edited to look more suitable, thoughts?

If I may ask, what was your purpose of making these sprites?
