Advice on how to achieve this

on: November 13, 2014, 01:37:08 pm
I was looking to see if anyone had any ideas on how to start bigger pixel characters, like in http://vimeo.com/35259959

I want to achieve something like this  https://31.media.tumblr.com/29fcf80ee6cf73c1d85d106888a8fd55/tumblr_n3o792EaZM1rb1rgoo6_500.png

If there are any rules, tips, tutorials to follow, I would really appreciate it. I am trying to get some bigger characters for a game idea I am working on in my spare time.

Cheers!

What decroded said, pixel art comes after, you could get most solid draftsmen of that style to whip up something like that in pixel art without much effort.

You might wanna have a tablet here, set your brush to some sort of circular shape, but with no AA. That's what I can think of.
