Pixel Art / Beholder fo' fun
« on: July 22, 2009, 11:54:22 pm »
It's my first pixel art in a while and I haven't been on this forum in forever.

I love the emoticons. :D :mean: ::) :-X So great.

Anyway here's my beholder. I don't want to spend more time on it (it was just for fun) but I would still appreciate criticism because I might learn from it!

I think it looks too flat. I think I need to either work bigger or not try to cram in so much detail.

(Each eye has a different colour, even though you can't really see it. Yep, it's pointless.)

Pixel Art / Platform Action-RPG graphics - seeking help (wip)
« on: July 03, 2007, 11:22:30 pm »

I'm working on making an action RPG game and I really want the graphics to be as great as I can make them. So far I've made some grass tiles, and one of the main characters.

As you can see I have started working on a run animation for this character. That is one thing I am particularly unsure about and would really like help with. Should I add more frames? Is it bad how much her leg kicks forward (and how can I fix it)?
I have a semi-animated version of the sprite here for anyone that has a gif program handy to look at it: (unfortunately all I have for animation is Game Maker and the very clumsy UnFREEz).
(The image only animates once.)

All sorts of comments are appreciated but what I'm really looking for is edits and criticism to help me improve the graphics and the graphical style of the game. Things I'm especially concerned about are the run animation and making the girl's head and face look right. I plan to post all the graphics I do for the game here, until I'm satisfied that I know what I'm doing. :P Thanks for looking!

Pixel Art / WIP ninja-type guy... please help

Edit 1:

Original text:

I was hoping to make a nice, neat, cool-looking fantasy character, then animate him. It's... not working out so well.

This is my biggest and "best" version of him so far:

I know there is something very wrong with it, but I just can't figure out what it is. The pose seems bad somehow, but I can't figure how to improve it. I'm not sure I like how skinny he is, but again, don't know what to do. I'm kinda lost.
I do like some things about this picture, but it hasn't yet reached what I was trying to accomplish.

What I'd like is advice on how to improve him. Advice on any aspect of the picture is very welcome, but pose and colouring are my 2 big ones. Edits would be very appreciated!

My previous efforts at rendering the same character:
