Pixel Artist?
« on: October 25, 2011, 11:06:46 pm »
I'm not exactly sure what you guys are looking for, but I thought I'd post my stuff anyways.
I make my own bases, some were referenced and the one on the right with the grey background is years old.

Thank you. c:
And I think it's a fun thing to do when you're bored or don't feel like actually drawing, lol.

I just use MS Paint, but I'd probably recommend using GIMP or another program with layers to make it a little easier.

Yes, I use the smallest brush I can and zoom in as much as possible too.
Here's a close up of one to show where I put the pixels and whatever.

You should check out the tutorials on deviantart and youtube too, just type in "pixel tutorial" or something similar and you should get plenty. o:

Or if you find a pixel you like, you can put it on paint and then zoom in to see how they did it and where they put the individual pixels.

Well for pixels, the pencil is better I think, it will leave a clear pixel without overflowing onto adjacent pixels as opposed to the brush.

Also, nice work soopah :)
No one can go back and change a bad beginning; but anyone can start now and create a successful ending.
If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it. If it cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?

Currently playing Pokemon XY/ORAS/Shuffle and Clash of Clans and testing out PokemonRevolutionOnline and Dragonmon Hunter....
Also, forum notification emails are not getting in my inbox... again...

Your work looks really good!

Do you only pixel characters or can you make stuff like environment (brushes, trees, pavement) and buildings (outsides, insides)?

Jerry is right. Pencil is harder but better. But whatever you use it looks so cool.
You have a big talent. You are a pixel artist for fun or you are hired to another games?
I LOVE CHARIZARD AND UMBREON!

Wow, very good examples. I like your style on the smaller scale ones, but how about some terrain sprites. Like trees, bushes, rocks, etc. Your very talented.
