Has it been two years?

on: March 23, 2006, 09:34:42 pm
Here's a little piece to get myself back in the pixel groove, as it's been so freaking long since I pixelled anything.

I'm much faster than I used to be, interestingly... this little guy only took me an hour and a half, which puts my productivity at roughly 2 or 3 times what it used to be.

Hey nemesis, you're getting way better. You should put a little more hue change into the orb.
And I am finally seeing that you were the one worth eating.

An hour and a half O_o To me this looks like something one could do in about 15 minutes if the idea is already there.

Looks nice tho.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I've always been a horribly slow pixeller; so I never did much because it would take so long. That's why I decided to work on that. :p

Out of curiosity, do you have any productivity/speedpixelling-related tips?

Or ought I just practice by giving myself a set time, forcing myself to make something in that time, and stopping once it's up?

I believe practice, knowing your tools and knowing what you want to do.

Learning the keyboard shortcuts in the app you use is the only tips I can give. I like the way the shortcuts are setup in Pro Motion. I especially like that you can use the pipette tool by holding down ctrl.
