Practicing Dithering...

on: September 20, 2007, 11:52:57 pm


This isn't really a serious piece.  I just decided, "Hey.  Let's see how much I can shape that shoulder using just two colors."

So uh...  Yeah...  There isn't much.  Just a bunch of dithering

Switched up the dark shade. Hue shift, looks a little better defined.

Well, that seemed a bit...  Easy of a change (though, given the nature of the Zaku, I think I would rather hue shift the other direction and lower the luminosity a notch)...

I'm wondering, though.  Is there anything else wrong with how I dithered it?  I would like to know what is acceptable and what isn't acceptable when it comes to this sort of thing.

Saitus! You're doing it wrong.
Your Cyan is far too light.

It's also really hard to get a non-rusty metal texture with dithering.

I don't mind the rustiness, since it's a Zaku and not a shiny Transformer or Gundam.  Plus, it's not meant to be serious.  I just wanted something really round to practice dithering on.

Here's my current edit:



Yeah.  I attempted to due a brownish hue shift instead of a blue one.

Huh? You know, you can use custom colors in Paint. Just gotta double click on a pallete entry and choose "define custom color".
