[Novice Pixel Art]

on: November 13, 2009, 02:01:39 am
Hello,Pupils.

Im a novice to pixel art and I would like to ask some tips on how to make a better tree don't worry about the grass and so :P

I just can't get the tree right and I have read most of the tutorials and so.

Here's the link to the trees I have build.

Sorry to disappoint you but your tree is NPA (non-pixelart)

They are displayed in the Dream Maker on BYOND (I hate byond, sidenote)
Might want to upload  the original file (not .dmi but .png)

I advice you not to join the BYOND trend...filled with NPA or stolen sprites
I've been victim too hence I might take off alot of my sprites from PJ for example as it's a source for Narutards.

I advice you not to steal or base your tree on these, btw.

That was probably made in vector.
Not pixel art.

Most of the people here are only good with pixel art; and what you've posted throughout this thread is not pixel art.
It's hard to help you with subjects that we are not proficient with.

I recommend listening to Elk's advice and following this link:  http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=8291.0
Read what people say on that topic; it will probably help you.

The reason is I don't get how to make that tree .

Thats why I have message him and so.

I can't find a easier tutorial.

So would it be best to look from a tree picture and try to draw it in pixels ?


Edit:
Other thing

Would it be better to draw a tree on photoshop and so then try to do it in pixel :D?

That would possibly be waste of time or simply: a colorreduct-turnout.

If you don't know how to draw, then follow these steps (props to a random person that posted this somewhere sometime)

Thanks,But I still can't understand that circle.

Is it just stating you that you must study+practice then you're a diffrent skill and so.

If it's about that Its the same thing im doing :P

Here's a tree I have draw.

By trying to look from this one.

Its still not shaded tough,will do it tomorow.

Tree that I have look on :

It's a sort of joke of a graph, but at the same time very true. Basically the chart says for anyone actually interested in art, there is no 'finish line'. An artist will constantly start over and learn new things to further their understanding of art. Basically, an artist is always learning -- practice practice practice is the best way.
