Shiba Inu and stuff

on: October 02, 2007, 05:56:02 am
So, uhm new pixels in a long while.



Inspired by ukiyo-e and sumi-e.
It uses 8 colors (7 for the dog and 1 for the bg).
Feel free to drop your thoughts if you have any.

wow...
this is remarkably smooth(with the exception of the outermost hind leg, i think you could smooth that out a little)
and it reads very well...
color selection is great...but the chest...stomach...part, to the right of its fore-legs(our right) looks odd to me...great job ^^
oh wait
one more thing
his outermost fore-leg has a bit of odd aaing...im not sure if thats the knee or what..but it looks off.

Thanks for the comments.

I fixed the leg that needed the AA, but the chest/legs part will stay the way it is as it was intended to be like that.
Also fixed some AA here and there.





...and today's pixels:

I think the top right (our right) hand side of the Ittanomen is a bit too straight and clean when compared with the rest of the outline. Perhaps the AA could be drawn out from the lower corner there, as it seems to end a bit short to me.

Really lovely work, i especially like how you drew the scarf monster thing.

Are these gunna be used for anything?

scarf does not feel like it is a curving plane, but that it varies in thickness.  otherwise though still ace stuff

The tail is the only part of my edit worth grain a' salt.
Pretty much an illustrated idea for Adarias' critique.

These are two awesome pixels, man.
The dog:

I like this, it really has a color woodblock print feel to it, especially from color choice and line use.  I just kind of circled where I though you could maybe smooth out a bit--the front leg, I guess is debatable, whether you are trying to show muscle there or not--but the back leg feels much to straight and harsh...the lines kind of lose their flow there.  I also want to say good job getting a fur texture without over doing it.  :y:

The scarf:

Your subtle use of vertical lines makes this piece really fucking cool--I'm not sure if you did so on purpose or subconsciously, but it gives it a rhythm for the curvy lines to contrast...a feature that a lot of Japanese color woodblock prints actually have (though it's more a background-foreground thing, but still).  So, the blue lines are there to show that, not to shun it :P.  The red circles are where it looks blurry, almost AAed for the sake of AAing, not so much the top circle, but the bottom one for sure.  The greenish circle is where I think you could make look a little more curved....I donno, just feels way too straight, or AAed wrong at the moment.
As far as colors go on this one; I almost think the shade color is too light..but I guess this lightness gives it its ethereal, elegant feel.

I really like these--I especially love the scarf...I saved it like 10 times :P.  Great work man. Can't wait to see more from you!  :y:
