Pixel Art / [CC] Aerials
« on: January 31, 2018, 07:04:53 am »
Hello everyone. I'm currently working on a rooftop scene and struggling with aerials, I just don't get how to draw them properly, could you please advise me something here?  :'( So far I have 3 different shapes and I'm not happy with any of those  :n:

I will really appreciate any critique, help, anything. Thank you!

Decided to make the cat half-larger

Changed colors a bit, changed the neck shadows and tried to add more details to it (but failed imho  :( )
Flattened the headphones band, got rid of banding in some places. Still don't get how to make the t-shirt look more natural but for now I think that's ok with me  ::)

Super17, Wow, I'm afraid I'm not on that level yet but thanks for your time, she's super cool!

A few suggestions, mostly regarding the colours:

I added hue-shifting to everything, which adds more life. Shading with a darker version of the same hue tends to give a boring, washed out look. Changing the hue also adds a little more contrast, which I think is good for this piece.
I changed the shape of the headphones to look a bit more like they're resting against her head. I probably didn't rotate them enough, they still look like they're not quite touching the far part of her ear. This is almost a front-view, so we shouldn't be seeing much of the sides of the headphones like this.
I moved her chin forward, it was very far back.

With the hair, hue-shifting gave it some contrast, and I simplified things a bit. Don't be afraid to leave some parts entirely in shadow, or to not have highlights. You should only have highlights where a lot of light would hit the hair, that's why they're called high-lights. Using them sparingly also makes it easier to give the head and hair some volume/3Dness.

Edit: Also, moved the highlights in her eyes to the right side, to match the lighting everywhere else in the image.

Well, that's what I have now, tried to rotate the headphones even more.

P.S. Look, she's smiling - now she likes how she looks ;D (or probably it's just her favorite track playing  :crazy: )

Oh my, eishiya, your works always make me cry  :'( That's so cool, thank you! I have never thought about hue-shifting for shading/lighting (probably I just should have read some theory about colors long ago :lol: ). I'll make all the changes a bit later, just wanted to thank you for your valuable advice right away :)

IIRawsomeII, yeah, you are absolutely right, I need to think more about the t-shirt :o

So, I realized that her neck was too long. And also decided to put on headphones  :)

Oh god, I love this character  ;D
I would add his famous grumpy look, and make his forehead a bit higher to look more alike him :)
I made some quick changes to depict what I mean here:

Or maybe I would add even more details like this:

Yes, Hunited is right, it's easier to use the same program. I'm using Aseprite as well, I know it can be a bit time consuming to clean up all the things, but unfortunately I don't know any program that does rotation pixel perfectly :(
