Pixel Art Feature Chest / GR#016 - iso objects - Form, Shading, Lightsource
« on: February 13, 2010, 04:28:01 pm »
So taking the advice given to me I've decided to go back to the basics and work on shapes, perspectives, shading and light sources.

Mountain Scene: Tried to add a light source(from the right) with rock/mountains and a few clouds.

Iso shapes with light source: I'm very interested in Isometric Pixel Art so I worked on some basic shapes some with different bases. I also added some light sources to the shapes. I left the center line on the circle as just a guide for myself so I could picture the depth.

Sword in the stone: So I wanted to try to do a sword with a light source and came up with this piece. I tried to make a realistic light source on the sword and stone thinking of a top right source with some shading.

Block Head: With this piece I decided on doing a basic square with some facial features. Light source yet around from top right, with a shot at blending the shading.

Log: We going through some tutorials and this one caught my eye so I decided to give it a shot. Log done from this tutorial pds tuts+

C&C very welcome. I'm trying to get a grasp on PA a long with the basics of light sources and shading. I appreciate tips given to me, but I am no expert in this art form, however I would love to learn the tricks of the trade to better my pieces.


Pixel Art / [WIP]Wee People
« on: February 07, 2010, 04:18:40 am »
So since my last share of the Retro Room I've been working on a few different art projects, my latest is a collection of Wee People. The idea came from playing some of the older Leisure Suit Larry games (as far as design), and from a few people I met when I was a child.


Passion Update ---V2--->

First two would be Lil' Bobby, and White Mike. A little story behind the two would be Lil' Bobby was a kid I went to school with who always wore purple, and White Mike was a little boy who grew up in a predominately black neighborhood and one of my best childhood friends.

As far as looks as you can see isn't purely based on the people but rather personality along with the theme of the set. C&C Welcome so I can improve, but I'm mostly just sharing one of my projects. Also any tips on doing the lower half would be greatly appreciated since I'm not too good with legs, and feet positioning, and perspective.

Edit: Added the third character Passion, C&C would be nice on how to make her a bit more feminine looking. Thanks in advance.

2nd Edit: So I worked on Passion more since there where a lot more changes needing to be made than the other two. Worked a bit more on lighting, however there is still more of the design needing reworking. Thank you to all who have offered advice, and tips on making the characters look better.

2nd Edit Pt. 2: Ok I really wasn't happy with the second update of Passion, it just didn't turn out how I wanted it to so I decided to rework it a bit. I went more towards the original shape with a bit less cheeks then the first, but not as narrow as the second. Also did a bit more work on blending the colors on the face and less dramatic shading. Hope this one looks a bit better, really trying to apply some of the advice given but still keeping it my own work.

Pixel Art / Retro Room
« on: January 14, 2010, 08:50:15 pm »
Hello everyone I'm Ron, I've really been into pixel art as far as 2D for a long time, however I currently started working with isometric pixel art. Here is my first shot at Isometric pixel art and I would like for you advanced artist to give me some critiques as well as advice, and tips. Please remember this is my first shot at it so don't be too harsh  ;D.

This is all my own work done in photoshop, however I did use resources to see how other people had done their own objects no C&P whatsoever :) so I want to thank everyone ahead of time for the inspiration for some of the items in the pic. It took me about 16 hours to finish everything and set up the room ( the design went through several edits).

Somethings I should work on and like to improve:
color matching
furniture design
Room layout

I think I did a pretty good job but also know I can improve a lot.


Still learning and trying to apply some of the techniques and advice I've been given so here is another shot at the room with a few changes, and a hardwood floor. I know it's not perfect, and I'm still really new at this but I'm trying  :)
