Yesterday I started with Pixel Art.

on: June 25, 2017, 06:41:28 pm
Good evening everybody!

First of all, my name is Rolscht.  Yesterday I started with Pixel Art.
I like Game of Thrones and so I decided to "pixel" these characters.
I still have no feeling for colours and shades. I Hope you can give me tips.

I apologise for my English, I am no native speaker or writer :)


Thanks for your feedbacks!

This honestly looks like you found/made a couple of pixelart bases and just went with that.
Many of these characters have different proportions and sizes that make them incompatible with that sort of method.
For example, khal drogo is a MOUNTAIN of a man and Joffrey is a tiny lil 13 year old. These bases put them at the same size when, in actuality, Drogo should be TOWERING over most of the cast here.

Go back over things and try to play around with everyone's proportions more, take free reign to exaggerate! Make drogo a big hulkman, make Jon Snow more of a willowy prettyboy, play around with people's features to make them more recognizably them!
PSA: use imgur

Thank you Mystery Meat for your tips!

Yes, you are right with the different proportions and sizes. I like the style and like to keep him.
Here is my new version of Khal Drogo. The old one should represent a normal size person.
