I'm quite new to the ic-board but haven't seen any pixel art.
I mostly draw normal stuff but am currently working on a game with a friend and I wanted to try out pixel art.
The pic is the room I am currently working on in the game and any critique is welcome.
Post your pixel art, if you have any below, would be awesome to see what level others are on.
There really aren't a whole lot of pixel-artists on ic. I'm not entirely sure why, it may just be a bit of a "specialized" medium. But I'm glad to see people posting their pixel art any time either way.
What are you going for with your image and is there anything in particular you feel could be improved on, but don't know how, etc?
I like pixel art. Currently trying to get into spriting but man, animation is tough.
You REALLY should work on fundamentals (perspective/composition/color theory) before delving into a specialization like pixel art, especially one with so many limitations
Go to pixelation/pixeljoint once you've become decent enough to get meaningful critiques (you can look at all the 0 to 2 replies threads for an idea of when you're still not good at fundamentals to post)
I really like this one.
I think it could use some more contrast to make the shades clearer. I noticed it's also very jaggy looking when zoomed out, but I feel like this is something that just kind of happens with smaller sprites with a lot of detail (although it is possible to smooth them out).
Is the cape meant to be tattered?
