Starting Pixil Art With No Artistic Background

on: February 13, 2007, 06:33:47 pm
I suck at art. Plain and simple, it just isnt my thing. I admire you guys so much that i figured i would give it a shot.
I've read one or two things about pixil art and so far im not doing great at it. I can't seem to find a way to think 3D.
Well, here is something I'm working on. Please give tips.

Have you seen the thread with useful links?

Anyway, I think the idea is neat but I think your lines need cleaning up a bit and please, do save in gif not jpg. Good luck!

Ehhh people still use that program so don't worry about that. Hmmm I don't use this program personally (Photoshop, I use) but I would download the trial version of Graphics Gale. I've noticed a lot of people using/mentiong it here. If you still want to stick with MS Paint, though, I suggest you save in PNG but I think browsers do something with PNG. I'm not quite sure on that...
