[WIP] [CC wanted] Mage sprite

on: March 11, 2011, 04:41:59 am
Hey there!

This is my first foray into pixel art for quite a long time, and my first ever really 'serious' sprite. As usual constructive criticism, advice, et cetera would be very much appreciated.

Here we go:



Oh and could you tell me what the best image host for pixel art is?

So I have to ask, what is it supposed to be ? All I can see is something humanoid-shaped being surrounded by something green, and bits of red on top.
I don't think there's any best vs worst image hosts for pixel art, I use imageshack (or even deviantart) to host all my pictures. As long as they don't .jpg it you should be fine. :)

Whats it supposed to be?

I guess it is a bit small. I've stopped work on it for now, it was really too small to do anything with.

So. What it is supposed to be is a mage/wizard/whatever-you-call-it casting a spell. However I guess it's too small to recognize.

Now... what shall I try next?  :-\

Try pixelling some RPG objects. Like you'd see in in your inventory, in some RPG game.

Hopefully this looks Sliiiggghhttllyy better. I am pretty new to pixel art as well though.



I tried to make the face more apparent and the magic spell was making too much confusion so I slimmed it down to a purple orb.

The black outline is missing in some places, which makes it look awkward, but definitely better than your first attempt.

Shading is... okay I guess in x2, but you can't tell in regular size.

People will probably give you less long ones though.
