BlueCheer :D (i need some help)

on: August 19, 2007, 05:44:46 am
Hello Iím new to pixelation and well pixel art (kinda) and ive learnt how to do everything my self pixel wise and I really need help because today I noticed that I suck.
Ive done a few weird little drawings that didnít really take that long. to give you an example of my style, a very bad style and id like to learn another ďStyleĒ or just some help on this stuff so I could get a picture of anything I could do too improve. Because really I hate how I make stuff and I donít know how to change it.



I know there retarded drawings and i need to improve that also but this just how i do it not my best stuff and such.

hey blue, before you develope you own style it may be better to get to grips with the basics first, that is to find a tutorial go through it and end up with something at the end Clicky for linkage

if you'd like to go for it youself, do put some effort into it and spend some time on you piece, go get a reference of something you'd like to pixel and knock yourself out, google image search is always goof for references lol

wat you've got so far doesn't really resemble anything, it might be better to tell us what they are then maybe we can crit them, they're heavily pillow shaded which is a no go (pillow shading is making you the light source, so the edges get darker), if you want to pixel people and gore (the far left picture) you need to address some anatomical issues within the image

so overall, get a reference and have a go pixelling it, start small and work on a background that compliments the image, not grey.

a new way to colour them?

you could go download the trial verison of pro motion (http://www.cosmigo.com/promotion) and use the build in function where u can select a colour that's already in the image and experiment by changing it whilst it auto updates the image, its quick and easy n really helpful

if that doesn't answer your question i dont understand what ur wanting here, could you be more specific?
