Pixel Shrimp Volume 3

on: May 09, 2008, 08:02:21 am
I finally managed to pixelate something that actually looks like pixelart :)
Maybe a few of you still remember my first and second try.

I have improved a little since then. I spent almost 20 hours or so -_-. I'm quite happy it turned out that well :) :) :)

This is really cool!

The way you have done with the x2 pixels down at the face is an awesome idea
However, you see the right claw but not the right legs and maby some antennas too would be nice..
It looks a little like an "alienshrip" at the moment, but maby thats what you want...

one more thing, the a.a on the 2 backlegs is a bit wierd and the last one is to long, you should take away some of it and make it
sharper cos' the body at that point is not x2 pixels...

This is a great progress after what I saw at your first try!

Good luck and keep on with your style!

Great improvement from before!!! Yes, what's mostly wrong (that I can see anyway  :-\ ) is  the AA on the back legs and the front claw (mostly its left) doesn't work well with teh x2 pixel technique you used on its mouth (which was a good idea btw). Also, it's tail is looking a bit "bubbly" at the moment, and it doesn't really look like it has an exoskeleton back there.

First of all, thanks for your critics! The 2x effect of the antenna was not intended at first, but then I decided to keep it how it is because I also like that "effect".

used the crab at http://leslierich.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/files/2007/08/beach-08182007-crab.jpg
as reference for my shrimp's left scissors.

I will add more aa to it's body,pixel some antenna, repixel his legs and add another 3 legs on the other side when I got time.
The greatest problem I have is the shrimp's tail. I couldn't add shadows to it because i dont know how it looks right (I have no reference).
That was also my problem with the first one.
help would be much appreciated. :).

Ok this is what I got so far. I think the body looks better like this:


But I can't figure out where the second row of legs should be.

I start understanding how the shadows behave on an object and I'm really in love with pixelart right now. :)

That's looking pretty good. You've come quite a long way. The shrimp's head looks quite nice, but the body could use some of the contrast that the head has. The white dithered areas are too harsh in my opinion, and they could do with a buffer shade between them.

This is vuckin sweet. The only thing I see is a slight awkwardness in the limbs, do you have references? I'd love to see this get all surreal, mangled twisted long legs or some stuff, I dont know. Your pistons are firing, more please. You're talented, nurture it.
