[C+C + HELP] Need advice

on: October 17, 2017, 11:38:26 am
Hey guys I'm relatively new to pixel art, I've messed with it a bit in the past but have never really had the motivation or time to work on it. Currently I have a lot of spare time and I am willing to put in the effort to learn. The pixel art style that I would like to pursue is landscapes basically an example of some of my best work is below, it might appear pretty bad but it actually took me quite a while.




What I'm trying to say is are there any resources specifically for landscape related stuff? One of the first guides I saw told me to use 16x16 and grey-scale, so that is what I have been using.

Any tips or advice on my work/guides would be much appreciated thanks!

That depends entirely on what you mean for landscapes, 16x16 is by no means really required and greyscale is often mainly used to see if the contrast in your piece works (in yours it doesn't the shade on the buildings, if they are buildings, to the lower left of the lightest ones reads very badly) after which you can then apply colour.
