Pixel Art / That Other Human Body (fairly large image)
« on: July 29, 2006, 11:53:05 am »

For the most part, based on myself. Didn't actually use a photo or anything, but I basically glanced at different areas and looked in the mirror a few times to sort of understand how to draw a larger/"less active" body, since I'm so used to seeing fit and muscular bodies in art. Basically what I'd like from you guys is advice on highlights and shadows. Obviously the light source is coming from the (our) top right, so base it off that. I'm trying to make it a goal to use the entire MS Paint pallete, effectively, in this piece. This is probably the first time I've tried something this large, and the first time I've tried anything with a really strange pallete. It's definitely going to be a bit difficult.

Oh yeah, edit for feet, plz? Haha.

This time around, I've started the shading, specifically on the left side (his right side). The light source is above and somewhat on the left, I think (hope). I'm not so sure if the flap things (can't remember the name of them, they're on the shoulders) should be the same color as the rest of the coat, I'll have to check a reference later.

It would be much easier if you had him throw away his coat as an intro, it would make the rest of teh animations easier to do(but if you want the extra challenge, keep it)..
You know, I'm not sure why I never thought of doing this, but it makes me go :D thinking of how easier things would be.

EDIT: Totally unrelated, but I just noticed that I have two accounts...
Guess I signed up before and forgot about this one. :/

EDIT2: If you check my latest animation, you'll see I got rid of the foot movement and tweaked the speed slightly. Looks better, I think.

Alright, I'm back and with a completely new animation. I got pretty annoyed with what I was trying to do and ditched the pose completely and decided to make him come off as calm, with his hands still in his pockets. So here's my latest:

I could definitely use some good critique on this before finalizing. First off, I'd like to say that I'll probably take out the thing he's doing with his feet, getting up on his toes. Looks kind of silly on a second inspection, like he's a kid or something. If you guys agree, that'd be nice to know.

Anyways, thanks for all the previous comments on what I was trying to do before. If nothing else, I got a lot of great tips and practice out of those first few messups.
