A little project for anybody interested.

on: September 29, 2006, 10:14:47 pm
I am not exactly a brilliant pixel artist, especially compared to the general population of this forum. Anywyas, For fun, if anybody is bored. Ive been wanting to pixelate my avatar for a long time. I tried it a few times in the past, it was shit. I am not very experianced with dithering, or texturing things with pixels. I think it might be fun for some of you. Plus I would really like it. Don't bother with the text, I never wanted that in there in the begining. No need for an animation on the eye either. Id love to see what could come from it, and I tend to think things look better pixeled. Its more pure.


Only if you want to :P

The color count(which appears excessive) and the dancing of the dithering pixels on the skin near the eyes leads me to beleive that this is not pure pixel art. Perhaps you missed what makes pixel art pixel art?

EDIT: OH! I'm so sorry! I guess I misinterpreted what Ari meant.  :o

He/She doesnt claim its pixeled. She wants it to be made to pixel art. But this is something for the off topic thread, not the pixel art forum.

Yes, but don't repost this. Try you hand at pixel art and get better, not make other people do it.

I'm not making other people do it. I'm just puting it out there for anybody who wants to do it, I would asume there is some people on this forum that would enjoy this little project. I also mentioned that I did try it myself a long time ago but gave up becasue I am not skilled enough to make it good enough to a point where its better then just useing this current one.

Also, Godslayer is right. That image is not pixel art. It's a photoshoped image, which I think would be 100% better pixelated. Just like most images. If nobody feels like doing it thats fine. It's more for the fun of seeing it pixelated.

Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should, just saying, become a better pixel artist, and try your hand at it again.

*moved*

this belongs in the general discussion, seeing that it has no pixel art currently.
