Going Crazy

on: April 22, 2007, 04:47:02 pm
 :'( Im new to pixel art, I discovered it when I figuired out how to put clothes on pixel dolls, then fell in love with it but I dont like using other peoples work to make things, I wanted to make something on my own and Ive tried to do so countless times...and I suck!

Here is an example of my horrible work  >:( What should I do!  :'( 









I aim at making cute things like this:

You need to credit the doll bases you used and the images you took from other sites... I think you might be better off trying a dolling forum.

the last three things weren't hers, she said that in the post. But I don't think she made the girl in the fourth pic.
I'll give some critique on your works when I get home

Only the kleenex box is from cutemushroom and the last one is probably from a Korean pixel art site as far as I can tell. Mb Sayclub or Tokiya. And  the girl is on Angy Chan's Sugar Base

Sorry the doll was made with angy chans base but the clothes on her I made.

Everything below the tissue box is from cute mushrooms except for the last picture I dont remember where I got that from so I didnt put anything, but it obviously isnt mine  :P if you look at my actual work

The head:
Fist of all, the shading looks bad. It is shaded like this:

Now, look closely to the girl in the last pic you made, there are no round circles but it follows the structure of the head a little.
You are trying to get a cute anime head, right?
If so:
-get rid of the nose
-make the eyes MUCH bigger
-open the mouth.
If not:
Go search for some photos or search for head anatomy on google and look at how a human head is built.
I would start with working out these things and after that you can move on in the progress of improving your pieces

The egg(?):
This looks like it has no effort put into it at all. You should working harder on this.

The iso building:
Itís very basic, but itís good to start that way.
You have a problem with your lines that makes it look unrealistic.
Lines should be:

Yours:

(click on them to zoom)
I recommend you to this:
http://rhysd.syntesis.org/tutorial/
And you should also check some other peoples works and learn from that. Watch the color of their lines closely.

The room:
This looks like a collection of non pixel art to me. The shadings arenít drawn by hand so you should change that.
You also got the same problem with the lines as the iso building.

Well, I hope I helped a little
Good luck with improving :)

whats with the hardcore AA on the tv? it looks overdone, and I am guessing you didn't do it, if you did, tone it down. The hair looks a little flat, but the shading is ok, it could use more highlights. I am not really a fan of dolling, but whatever floats yer' boat I suppose.
