[WIP] "Blobby" (first post :D)

on: February 04, 2007, 10:16:18 pm
I've been pixelling for a while now but i'm still not as good as i'd like (but hopefully i'm getting there). Anyway heres a little cartoon creature i did to practice light sources and shading. Done in MS paint, took about an hour and a half, idea first thought up in a german lesson (not strictly relevent lol)

Crits?

An hour and a half for this is pretty bad, but considering the quality of the piece, it's probably not important at your skill level.


Pretty horrible edit of the piece, but it shows some important things.. You have way too many colors in here, especially ones that are almost identical. I did a bit of AA'ing, increased contrast, dithered around a bit..

He didn't have far too many colors, they just needed a bit more contrast ^^

Quick 15 minute edit:


Here's what I did;

-I AA'ed just about everything except the background, I think it's fine.
-Added a buffer tone between the darkest and the second darkest.
-I lowered the saturation.  You had almost every color set to 100.
-The left foot was pilow shaded, so I fixed that.

I think that's nice for an hour and half, I would take more than that to make something on that level. But I'm just a noob, anyway... =\
It looks good, only thing I was gonna say is that it didn't look so roundy, but now with the edits it is nice.

Sorry, I meant that too many of his colors were pretty much useless. Minced my words up or however you say it.

I had added AA, and moved light source. Spikes are now replaced by 'hair'. :P
