Wave hello to all my friends **Updated 7/24/06*

Current:


Imaginary friends are people, too.

A smaller piece, but that seems to be the norm, lately. I wanted to try some of the stuff I hopefully picked up from the wonderful critique on my last post.

Suckass monitor again, which seems to give everything a warm/brown tint. I'll correct that at home.

EDIT:
1BG, though no where near as sexy, inspired by Pawige's horsie pic.
2Expanded, sky altered.

I like this. It has a lot of character. I like his facial expression! There is one thing that sort of bugs me a tiny bit, it's the tie it seems to be attached to his chest. Nice work as usual! ;)
That's the way the cookie crumbles. - Do the bug bob.     - Woot!

Looks nice.

A suggestion: The character looks as though he is there, and there happens to be a background. I think maybe if you have the sky's colour affect his lighting, it would help them fit together more. Does that make sense? Like maybe a mild hue shift to the dark red for the shadows and to the lighter peach color for the highlights.

Just a thought, though. Like, I could be completely wrong, considering I'm pretty inexperienced with pixeling.

Bewtiful, glad I was able to provide some inspiration. The arms and hands don't quite match up size or shape-wise (perhaps this was intentional?), and the edges of the green hills are pretty jagged looking against the red sky.

Thanks, all. Updated with some tweaks, primarily to the left arm.

Ryumaru: Fair enough. I should try to unify or something, and go for the effect stephen mentioned, but I'm feeling lazy. It's been a bit of a bitch picking colours for this one, as the wrong choices have been messing with the smoothness, so... but anyway, something to work on :P.

Matriax: Fixed (?) the left hand, but didn't add a flower (already 16 colours, none of which seemed suited,and I didn't wanna push the palette any higher).

Dan: Moved the tie up a bit. Hard to placesince he has no neck or clothing... ;D

Stephen: Yes, definitely a good call. Read my response to Ryu, though, and you'll see my current problem. I'm probably gonna work on it.

SplatPixel: Fixed?

Pawige: Not intentional, just lazy. ;D Hopefully fixed. Hills maybe less jagged now?

Don't think the palette's got any problems as it is. I like this very very much, I think you did good work. Nice outlines-to-lightness, nice volumes (pixelling spheres properly can get kinda messy) and finally, the feeling I get from the piece is a good one, so extra double points for making me feel something in the first place, and for it being good! Rocking.
