And ..... Hi, Wayuki.  It was your presence at MIB that caused me to take things a step further.  I'm glad to see you here!

Glad I could inspire.  ;)

I use Adobe for pixel art as well, it works just fine. You can use the magic wand tool if you uncheck the "Anti-alias" box and set the tolerance to zero. You can also use layers, as long as you keep them at 100% opacity and don't use any layer effects.

Hiya KidChaos! Good to see you here. You've come to the right place to learn.  :)

Thank you! I think I learned a lot about how different colors work and mix together. I also felt using a palette like this was an interesting challenge rather than an inconvenient restraint. :y:

I did a few different versions of the face before starting the rest of the doll, and for one version I did actually dither in gray and yellow. I think it looks good from a little distance, but from close up I think it looks unpleasantly grainy. Especially with a cutesy character like this, I preferred the smoother look even if it meant a weirder skin tone.

Yeah, I did try it with both actually. I liked the fact that the blue was darker, but I thought the saturation of it was too overwhelming. It almost made her skin seem even more saturated, whereas the gray seemed to tone it down a bit. So then I decided to go with the gray.  ;)

Thanks for the comments, guys! I'm glad you like it.  :-*

She's not necessarily supposed to be an alien... I just tried to make her stylized and cute, "doll-like" if you will... and somehow make it work with those colors. I guess the combination of those do make her a bit freaky.  :lol:

It's not your program, it's how you use it.  :)

MSPaint totally sucks, but that doesn't stop you from making awesome art with it.  :lol:

What do you get when you combine the bright happy style of the dolling community with the blaring colors of the EGA palette? :D

It's my first attempt at heavily restricted colors. I used all palette colors except the greens. The result is well.... colorful?  :crazy:

Maybe if you stare at it long enough you'll start to see pastels.  :D

I agree with Willfaulds on drawing guidelines to see if all the parts match up. However, I don't think you should draw a 3/4 view of the head. I think he should be looking in the same direction he's walking ingame, otherwise it would look weird.

The side profile does look wimpy, so I'd beef him up. Push the shoulders and feet back for a more powerful stance. The pecs look like boobs, don't make them stick out like that! Also, make the head one pixel deeper, make his hair more squared off like the front view and include a sideburn. That will make his head much more manly.

My edit:

The skin did look very yellow to me so I edited that too, though it might be a little on the extreme side.

I don't think z-brush would work very well for a spaceship, though. It's more aimed at organic modeling. Personally I'd make this in a more conventional 3d program.

I voted "Other artists/movements", although I use references from nature just as much. I think it's best to study as much material as possible: life, photos, artwork in every medium.

I also think that it's best to visit more than one art community, so that you don't get too caught up in the bandwagons of just one forum. I sneak around just about everywhere, haha.  :D
