Sometimes my pixel art is okay, sometimes it sucks really hard.
Why ;-;
You must perform more sacrifices.

Unless I'm wrong about what Graphic Design entails, the only conclusion I can draw is that four other people didn't get a proper mention in the Minish Cap's credits. That's kinda bullshit.
Similar thread going on at Polycount today. Pretty interesting, I'd never even thought about it before.

Pixelation seems to be going down a lot recently. Don't tell me it's being targeted again or something D:

My little sister randomly found and shared this on Facebook. I don't know who it's by, but I thought y'all would enjoy it and might know who to credit. Hidden behind link, as it's massively zoomed in.

I forget if I shared it in this thread, so I'll include this in here too.

Anyway, main reason for posting is that I finally finished reading the Animator's Survival Kit and am happily moving on to Drawing On the Right Side of the Brain - and feeling the progress. I would've liked more focus on computer graphics, though - I still don't know where everyone learns what colours to use per limb and so forth when planning out animations.

I think that has been posted before :)
However, you might want to link to it rather that putting it in image tags, as it's pretty huge.

I still don't know where everyone learns what colours to use per limb and so forth when planning out animations.

Do you mean when they plan the animation out before hand? I think they just choose any old colour that is different than the other so they can differentiate the left from right. I'd say its up to you which colours to use so long as it helps you to tell things apart. I know when I plan out an animation its usually just black scribbles so.

The rough version of the animation should be a shorthand version of the animation that *you* can understand, it's basically writing notes to yourself. You still should observe proper technique in rough form but you are the only person who needs to be able to decypher it for the finished animation. I'm like Jakten in that I just use black scribbles, personally I feel like assigning colors to separate limbs is often a waste of time unless you're doing something very complicated - like a guy flipping and spinning through midair.
I mild from suffer dislexia.

Just thought I'd say hi.  Used to be Wolverine some time ago (and still am on Pixel Joint since they can't change names easily apparently) and it looks like I still have a wolverine named account here too which I didn't realise so if the mods want to delete that please do.

Just signed up to comment now and then on some topics.  I'm not really much into pixel art these days as anything other than just the fact I like making games that look 8/16 bit so I don't think I'll have much to contribute but it's nice to see some people on here I used to follow back in the day.

I remember you. Always enjoyed your works.

My pixel interest has wained dramatically as well. Need to do something about that.
