Before I get in too deep...

on: October 05, 2006, 12:12:44 am


Easily the most ambitious thing i've ever tried to do pixel art wise.  To my surprise it was alot easier than hand drawing.  Thought I'd get some opinions before I get in too deep.

Edit: Fixing the feet as we speak.  They seem too thick for what i'm going for at the moment.

Edit 2:  Finished it afterall.  Thoughts?

i hope you aren't hiding his hands in his pocket in order to not draw them. the best way to learn to draw hands if to draw hands geddit :crazy:

overall it looks nice if a little bland. i know you are going for an anime style but if this is just going to be a static piece you could add depth without using the anime feeling. try find some manga artists with great depth + anime style and look at how they draw and then apply their techniques to this piece.
thanks Dogmeat!

Of course I am!
Lol but it wasn't entirely intentional. From the start I had planned on the pocketed hands.  I had that pose visualized from the start.  When I got to the hands I realized how convenient that was for me.  :D

I'd appreciate it if anyone knew of any hand tutorials they could post.

In regards to the eyes I was trying to put my own spin on it with kind of a cartoony eye (Like in my avatar), and I had orignaly gone with something like it in the incomplete version.  In the second I went for kind of lazier/sleepier version.  Couldn't hurt to look it up regardless.

Edit:



There we go.  Gave hands a shot.  Wasn't as bad as I thought.  The fingers are supposed to be curled up.

His thumb looks kind a broken.
Try looking at some hand refferances to get some ideas of how fingers bend.
Here's a good site for hands.
