Hehe okay good luck with all of this. The 'clean lineart' pixel lines are only useful for iso work and extremely low-colour spriting. Anywhere you have a few shades more, you can aa any sort of curve into cleanness but I see the point.

Don't forget large lineart; the so-called 'perfect lines' suck megaballs for large curves.

Please kids, sit up straight while the headmaster and inspector are in the room!

Good points Helm, goat.

I feel for the small art they are doing / will be doing it will be beneficial.  It also leads easily into the anti-aliasing lessons.
MIIIIISTER EVAN!! PAY ATTENTION OR GET OUT! *throws handful of pixels at evan*
very good negative.  nearly top marks,  poor choice for crossover point though. :)

Lets lead easily into the next lesson.... which is...

a practical session!  draw up a small lineart, about 64 x 64 pixels on the topic of Alien Invasion (use your imagination). post it, and we'll do some C&C, then a quick introductory lesson on tone, then we'll color our pics.  I'll participate as well, so you can practice your C&C skills on me.  (I'll C&C you on your C&C).  If you wish to get involved, please jump right in and submit a lineart.

get to it!

You can call me NG for short  ;D (Honestly I don't like being called Negative  ::) )
Here is my Invasion!!
I call it Floating Icecream. Pretty original, eh?

QUICKLY!! pull up a chair!
j/k. you have some fairly solid skills already.
have you reviewed the current lessons?

your first tasks....

1.  Explain briefly what happens to our color perception at night, or in low light conditions and why.
2.  Get a piece of lineart made on the topic of Alien Invasion at around 64 x 64 pixels.

NG:  Nice lineart.  Might be too detailed for such a small piece for now, but should be OK.  I'm not sure how the UfO is working....  whats the triangular piece in middle (not the beam)?

Something like this  ;D But with 4 triangles.
And most of the details will go away once I color.

The top of course. That's the style of design I did on the top of the UFO, but modified a bit.
