[WIP] Binoculars

on: January 22, 2011, 02:36:30 am
It's been a loooong time since I've done any pixel art. I'm trying to ease myself back into it by just drawing some small objects.
Here's some binoculars:



Crit? Thanks!

I... I'm amazed! Those are the best ever! The only thing I would try to change would be the middle shaft-what'cha-ma-call-it in the middle, it needs to be a bit more obvious.
Pixel Art, what (mostly) all of us are here for.

overall nice form.  there appear to be some minor banding issues especially around the lens, just smooth that out and they should look pretty nice :]
he hobbles and hobbles.

Fixed some banding, made the connecter piece stand out more, slightly increaded size of lenses.

mine:     yours:


Yours look worse in terms of color, the best I could suggest to goose is it needs more contrast in the OUTMOST outline and some AA like so: as you can see I dropped the AA cause transparency and AA don't mix.

No, actually it doesn't. The original is missing a lot of contrast and has very inconsistent shapes, both of which are fixed in the edit.

the lenses look like they sink in the middle, rather than smoothly bulging out.  The culprit is the darker pixel in the center.
