Pixel Art / Lights and some other stuff
« on: May 16, 2011, 03:05:54 am »

So today, after being inspired by a beautiful piece of pixel art, I decided to sprite a few things. I made a treasure chest, then a brick wall tile that doesn't tile very well at all, and Lights.

Some help would be great!


General Discussion / Best Pixel Art
« on: October 07, 2010, 11:34:52 pm »
I have a philosophy-like class, and we're currently doing a unit on art. There's a big project on the nature of art and quality and my group was thinking of doing ours on pixel art. Many people will probably have negative preconceptions, so I'm looking for something that will really wow everyone. Does anyone have any suggestions?

General Discussion / At what size does pixel art become meaningful?
« on: September 20, 2010, 02:51:56 am »
I recently posted a sprite on another forum, and was told that by an extremely talented spriter for whom I have a great deal or respect, that "pixelart of this resolution isn't really detailed enough to quibble over". My sprite isn't even like 8 by 3 or something like that, it's 18x44, but that's not even the point. 1 pixel, isolated, I think is not detailed enough to warrant too much excitement, so therefore there must by a line. At what size are sprites meaningful?

Pixel Art / Average Guy

I'm not sure whether I should go for a multicoloured outline. This seems to work fairly well with all the parts except the arms. D: I still don't know how to do hands and feet.

Edit: Updated with hand-hiding technology.

Edit2: Oops maybe I should have worked on this more myself before posting it. Better arms.


"So Moribund created man in his own image, in the image of Moribund he created him; male and female he created them."

I also tried a sharper outline, as I noticed the old one didn't work well when I wanted to do dark colours. Is this new outline too obnoxiously dark? Maybe a bit too saturated as well.


Pixel Art / CSW Style Character
« on: June 25, 2010, 09:47:00 pm »

Ugghh I can not even begin to approach doing hands. This is my mostly complete character in Card Saga Wars/Tales Of style.

C&C greatly appreciated in both spriting technique and character design. I think he might need a fourth colour I dunno. Maybe a tie?

Thank you!

Pixel Art / Small stuff

So uh, as this is my first post I better have a long detailed history of myself. Basically I've been on and off into Pixel Art for awhile, and I've poked around this site but I have always been to intimidated to join. I sprite for the game Cortex Command almost exclusively, so I started whining that we should have some sort of sprite help thread there. The mods were all like "Well why don't YOU do it". Backed up into a corner, I had to accept. It's helped me improve tremendously, but I think that if I am going to fill the role well enough I need to be better. I've swallowed my fear (it is now giving me indigestion) and decided to post here.

edit: I can't get the image tags to work.
