You need to spend more time with construction and perfecting your pixel clusters. The amount of revision you do for a sprite means there wasn't any forethought put into it. Perhaps in next editions the amount of pixel tech will be useful for someone watching, but for now that was pretty tortuous for me to see you try to fit that arm in, this arm in that leg in until something stuck. It's not a very good artistic practise to improvise what appears to be game art is what I am saying.

i see what you mean. the main problem with me is that i usually don't plan what i'm going to do actually, as most of the time i jump into the canvas and start developing the concept as i draw it(to be honest i remember only one or two times where i actually made some sketches and planned carefully what i was going to do). still is not suposed to be finished, and i have yet to color it. and during that process, most of what was sketched is going to be removed or changed.

That whole process is not one that should be encouraged is my point.

you mean, i shouldn't display it In public, or at least make it clear that others shouldn't take it as a good way to develop your work?(in terms of putting a warning in the video itself)

There is nothing wrong with playing it by ear. Nor is there any harm planning out beforehand. They are different means to the same end. Sometimes digging in and figuring things out as you go leads to happy accidents.

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but all "good" artists plan things out, just more or less formally. Experience with planning things out a bazillion times eventually gets in your head, it might seem people skip some "basic steps" but don't they just do it unconciously?

So if it's a tutorial video, then that sounds like a really bad idea to me. Edit: Checked the video, and the description says clearly that it's not a tutorial, just a video on how you do what you do.

Metaru: as long as it's not a tutorial video then I am not saying you shouldn't show it... it's an indirect way of telling you that you should perhaps invest in planning your artwork in the future.

oh, I did took the time to warn that it wasnt a tutorial in any way. (considering the massive amount of self proclaimed tutorials out there). as for the lack planning, well thats true, yet in some pieces i had to use a small planning of what i am suposed to do(considering that i can hardly sketch using a mouse) to give myself a rought idea of what i'm going to do. its like i always follow a completely random path until something random pops up.

Not sure which I prefer more, that pixelin' or those pan flippin' skiznillz.

That was a crazy video. I thought it was several different things as it grew and morphed until it was finished. It would be far more useful to folks if you'd record yourself giving the result a decent shading and coloring.

Doesn't stream for me like other peoples' videos, but it's small. Sprite to left was from the game we're adapting, and what I'm pulling very loose designs from. Was a bit fickle but I think it was from being camera shy.

This Techsmith codec is amazing!

edit: oh yeah, a preview image added. watched the video and got back any good pixel placements I had lost.
