You're alot softer than Panda.

Ironically more gifts are missing this time though.

Either way, thanks for taking care of this Sven :)

I always use #9E9E9E (158,158,158), a neutral grey.

Panda:  A pact with the devil! I knew it!  :hehe:  Thank you for the response!  The basics of most of what you said are sitting in my brain somewhere--it's just a matter of making them common knowledge and habit I suppose. The biggest thing you've pointed out for me, though, is patience.  I notice you say that it can take you days.  How long did it take you for your bird avatar?  This sort of brings up another question, too: Do you AA as you go or devote a "step" in your process for doing it, or what?  For me it usually sits as a middle to end process, being the last thing for me to satisfied (or dissatisfied) with.

Oh, I meant it more like a "keep going at it and eventually you'll be able to do it".
But sure, some stuff can take me days. It is all relative as it depends on its purpose.
For personal stuff, I take all the time in the world and slack every now and then. For work I fully focus on whatever I'm working on (unless I have a bad pixelling day, that's it :P).

The falcon took me 3 days to finish, I started the sketch one night, the next day I was almost done with it, and on the third day I just went over some stuff, fixed some things and added the last touches. Overall it took me around 7 hours-ish.

And yup, I AA as I go.

Panda: How did you develop your antialiasing technique?  It's hard for me to eyeball which things to aa and how much aa to apply.  You've got this down to a science it seems.

A pact with the devil  >:D

In all seriousness, I haven't done anything worth mentioning.
I've been pixelling on and off for around 6 years now, and eventually it just clicked.

As for what to AA and how much to apply, that is up to you I think. Depends on what you want to achieve.
Personally I don't like seeing blocky jaggies, but I don't like blurry stuff either, so I always try to find a middle point that works for both.
It all comes down to a mild OCD behaviour, your point of view on pixel art and taste, I suppose.

One tip though, keep checking a preview window or zooming in and out a lot to check if the AA you applied works. If it looks blurry or non-AA'd you've either AA'd wrong (too much or too little), or have the wrong values in your palette.

Oh and be patient, usually stuff doesn't come down in a day, so don't get discouraged if it doesn't work straight away.
Keep working at it, just do your thing, be merry.

I don't think you are understanding your current position.
If you keep behaving the way you are doing right now, you will start getting strikes or get directly banned.

The Pixel Art forum is strictly for pixel art critique, all unnecessary off-topic (specially those sassy comments of yours) should be avoided or done through PMs.

So stop derailing the thread and keep focusing on the pixel art.
Or else action will be taken.

And for your information, it isn't a booger but a Green ChuChu.

That 'straight-out-of-an-online-translator' bit of Spanish is bullshit, so keep trying.

But enough, please try to keep this thread focused on the actual pixel art related bits.

Actually there was.
But since I merged both threads, it was removed to avoid confusion.

Fuck you, have fun in Nazi Germany, you hyper-sensitive mod faggots.

Useless one liners, like the one you previously posted, are deleted to prevent threads getting derailed and keep them mainly for critique.
I dont give a crap what you call us, but for now you'll be getting a strike.
If you don't like it here, the door is open for you to leave.

Now let's keep this on topic.
