>ITT: Post your pixel art
The last thread a couple days ago was a lot of fun. If you have any pixel art you've made either for a game or just for fun, post it here.
I'll bump with some of /v/'s autistic masterpieces from last thread.
>He doesn't create vector art
Original, do not steal.
i am not good at pixel arts but i am learning how to drawn
pic related is probably the best i have done so far.
If you wanted a garflando thread you should have just asked OP.
these are just edits, mostly recolors to the Iron Hand sprites I made for a Dwarf Fortress mod a while back.
let's play a game. add a line or two and we will make something horrible
I don't know why
But I did some shit
thanks man, i did. took like 3 hours iirc. heres a reskin i did of my d&d character
I made this, and a bunch of other things like it years ago.
They were originally for a quest of sorts on /tg/.
Do you normally add clitoris to eyeballs?
The only Pixelart I have on my computer. I used to really get into my Mario Kart DS avatars. This is just terrible in comparison.
We need more anons creating things and then other anons drawing fanart. It was fun seeing people's art especially when they were really good at it. And the ones that weren't so good ended up being really funny like pic related.
It's pure fucking insanity, not edge.
this makes me really, really uncomfortable
>someone out there someone thought this up >probably while masturbating
The really weird and unsettling thing is that the guy who made this abomination looks like just another everyday person
Maybe you've walked past someone, or talked to someone who draws art like this and not even known
Seems like an obvious combination but okay.
a different kind of grumbo
[spoilers] good night [/spoilers]
I FUCKING HATE WORKING ON LEAVES
also last one I'm willing to post
Something I did a while ago. I figure I should work on it more, but I'm too lazy.
No it looks amazing. I wish I could make colors work together the way you do, all my "art" if you can even call it that is mostly one or two colors. I try to make it more complex but it comes out looking like a hot mess.
I should note the original art isn't mine; it's by some xopachi guy, pic related. I only NESified it.
I don't even fucking know anymore, made this because I was bored earlier today.
I had no idea where to go with this but here ya go
I can take some more
Old screenshot of the abandoned version of the game I'm working on
I'm thinking some sort of rhythm based combat. Don't really have a plan yet.
This model probly needs to be redone.
fuck this is good
if I was competent and motivated enough to make a game I'd absolutely consider having you on
errrr, one of the 3-4 abandoned versions
going to be a long time before I finally get to put everything together for the next one
last one for real, 70% finished map
here's my player character from a yume nikki fangame I'm making
well not maps, i've been
very slowlydedicating all my talent to this one project except for music I just make remixes sometimes
i have unfinished mountains that i haven't touched in over a year?
Yezzir. From a failed project that I got hired on.
Also collaborated on these. It's been a long while since I've done anything though.
Sweet. I'm working on another project on another chan, and been doing some of their models. (I didn't texture this one, just modeled and animated).
How hard is it to get hired for this sort of thing? Portfolio? Word of mouth?
Do sprite edits count? I used a base...
I know, homestuck
Salametti and meatballs.
I appreciate it pal. I'm already pretty busy with my own project and other real life stuff but working on other games might be a thing for me some day.
>How hard is it to get hired for this sort of thing? Portfolio? Word of mouth?
I try wayofthepixel and pixeljoint. They have job offering sections that you can reply to.
Unfortunately, there's a lot of profit share jobs and scammers, so really it's all about luck.
I've considered skimming kickstarters and contacting projects to see if they need an extra artist. But I have a project to work on first.
My goal is to be able to quit my day job and work on art full time. Hopefully I can do that this year.
I've posted it in pixel art threads before.
trying to make 1 bird related thing a day until I reach 100 but I'm in over my head. I'll probably just have a weekly deadline instead.
And a garbage lowres sprite version.
I think I'm trying to get too much detail into way too limited space here.
I think I'd have fun coming up with ludicrous evolutionary lines for these misfits. Maybe another time.
I just use SAI. I used to do all my pixel art in MSPaint for the longest time though, really.
Pixel art threads usually start from someone bitching about indies and eventually turns into people posting the same metal slug and snk backgrounds.
This one's all about everyone just sharing their artwork. It's really nice actually.
practice and study. Mostly practice.
These are cool as fuck. Real trippy.
I guess this counts as some kind of golem, right?
Keep at it dude. I won't asspat you with Oh it looks cool, but it's not half bad, and if you've made it this far you've really got some potential. Keep at it dude.
Also I like his scarf.
Hm, well I'm not the best at giving advice but I can give it a try, I guess.
Learning to draw traditionally is definitely the first step. Learn your anatomy, learn perspective, learn how to create texture, learn how to shade.
UNDERSTANDING LIGHTING IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.
You need to have at least a basic understanding of all of that before you can create pixel art, let alone any medium of visual art.
Learn how to create dynamic and interesting palettes. Hue shifting can keep things from looking boring. I learned this from studying other images and simply experimenting. >>322590254 is a very good example of bad palettes vs good palettes.
Always study. Even in your day to day activities, pay attention to your surroundings, focus on the form of objects and people around you. Pay attention to how light bounces off of them, etc. Not only do you learn more while just living your life, it makes things more interesting. You see little details you wouldn't normally notice. I live in a big city so I have the priviledge of seeing a ton of different interesting things every day. I think that's helped me a lot to grow as an artist.
Above all, practice your ass off. All the time. Every day (i'm guilty of being lazy).
Should I put my monster I made in Kaiju combat? I heard it became a furry game and I don't want to support no furry game. He's in the pic.
Dunkin on your ass
Here's some motivation.
I'm the guy who made these
And pic related is something I made only a few years ago
The green kangaroo is a character made by some furry. This thing was also some fetish monster made by another furry.
Granted, both of them got altered a lot to fit the style, but they're both undeniably furry creations.
Because that one is obviously a football player isn't it?
There's also the sailor on the bottom right and the athletic speed walker in the yellow suit.
Jokes aside, what are the classes?
Great stuff otherwise. Would love to see more of your animated sprites.
I don't have too much animated stuff left.
Got a couple really old stuff I guess.
I wonder if anyone remembers what failed /v/ project this is from
Where can I post pixel art to get attention with an identity?
Tumblr would seem natural but the layout is terrible and once an image is uploaded you can't reliably delete it (reblogs still exist)
Deviantart has better layout in some ways but increases the chance you'll wind up in a cringe thread or otherwise looked down on.
4chan would be nice if not for archives (again, can't delete if you regret posting.), not as a permanent host but as a discussion place.
status effect logos
they're a bit shitty looking because photoshop but they're crisper individually
tumblr is probably your best bet.
There's also pixeljoint.
Made last year for a school project.
Resize at nearest neighbor.
Now I'm getting into sprite sheets I never finished/animated. Oh boy.
I think this is all I can muster for tonight.
This has been fun, thanks for humoring my silly pixel game, have a good night fellas
I think I'm gonna head to bed now. Nearly 5 over here.
Was fun dumping, /v/. Goodnight
also tiny bit of background
cba to put anything else up atm, I can't find the files
Drawing is just so relaxing and fun when you're in the mood for it.
also have some more since i'm quite proud how the demo's new look turned out...
All this stuff is pretty sick, you guys are cool. I tried getting into pixel art over a year ago but just kinda gave up. I heard that it's like drawing where you still need to know about proportions and shit to git gud and I didn't know anything. Dunno if it's true or not.
Once you do it for a job and the only thing your employers give a shit about is wether you can get it done in an hour or not, it becomes a lot less relaxing.
stay in school kids
>I heard that it's like drawing where you still need to know about proportions and shit to git gud and I didn't know anything. Dunno if it's true or not.
Yep. No matter the medium, pen, paint, charcoal, lite brite, pixels.
It's all the same, you gotta know your fundamentals.
That's pretty good though, anon.
thanks, i don't think i slept at all for the whole jam so this sprite ended up being really rough.
Ah, I see. Do you think that if I wanted to get back into it I should get better at drawing first and later move on to pixel art? Or could I practice the fundamentals with just pixel? I wouldn't even know where to start, really.
Also thanks, dude!
Turned a photo of my backyard from a decade ago into a gameboy camera scene. I kind of cheated using a filter, but it works.
Well no, I mostly use Binary pen in Paint Tool Sai, Mspaint is too primitive but it has its uses when I just began studying digital art in general, here's an example of what I used to do with Mspaint.
Some people sketch with pen/brush tool first to figure out all the basic shapes and then they go over it with the pencil/binary tool. With smaller pixels you can go one by one but with large pixels they're probably using some kind of paths or they're just using the pencil like a brush and removing the jaggies.
Even for MSPaint, that is fucking sweet. And thank you for the input, guys. I'll try and do something like that. Are there any guides some of you used or recommend to get someone into it? Should I start with MSPaint or Sai?
No offence or anything but it's a bit pompous of you to present your work as motivation for others. Your work is ok but not something to write home about, especially when pixel art is pretty much a breeze for anyone who's in any way good at drawing.
There's quite a lot of tutorials out there that it's quite overwhelming so I wouldn't know what to suggest since I personally haven't been doing anything pixel related in years. You can easily Google things or look at something like the PixelJoint forums.
MSPaint is barebones but it's fine since it has the pencil tool. It depends on what you like to use and if it supports things like transparency and easily manageable colours.
Honestly, I have to say Sai isn't too optimal for pixel art. I'd rather recommend Fire Alpaca (it's free) over it for that specific purpose.
I personally use Graphics Gale, but Aseprite is a more modern (and actively developed) choice.
Get a tablet first, mouse gets limited when it comes to translating stuff onto bigger canvases and its less time consuming.
google Breeding Season.
I'm more isometric man myself. Something about it just feel nostalgic.
Are you supposed to make pixel art with a mouse or a pad and pen hookup?
Mouse is going to hurt your hand after a while but it might feel more comfortable to do so if the canvas is small. You'll have more control with the pen so it's good for keeping things precise. Depends how you do your lines I guess.
Its more of a cape with a hat
>want to pixel art
>doing it properly instead of looking like a shitty $0.99 indie game requires an actual understanding of art
>obtaining an understanding of art actually takes effort
i want to die
everything i want to do takes effort
even killing myself would take effort though
>want to actually do more art for games and shit
>only time i ever actually practice is when my friend asks me to help him with a sprite
>even then i barely finish what i start half the time
Idk man. I just use my mouse in GIMP. I usually zoom 400 to 800 percent to make the lines and details though. Just draw one half and copy it across the middle. My ships are for ftl mods so looking at those ships helps.
