Pixel World!-The virtual PDN-Live,Learn, Draw!-


Recommended Posts

topezia your pixel people are looking really good, my only suggestion is, pixel art is usually small, because its built one pixel at a time and it takes a while (depending on wat your making). it looks like you draw your people big then resize them, remember that pixel art uses the pencil tool only. Im enjoying your art :P. keep up the good work :P

pixel world is going to have a few updates coming and we need your help to make them possible!:

topezia has pointed out that every pixel town needs a name, any suggestions for names for our town?

our pixel community is growing, every day we have more and more pixel characters, but where should they all go? i could simply add them to the town. or maybe someone has a creative suggestions?

*pixel world is always growing, feel free to pm me suggestions, or to post them in this thread!!

Thanks

kevin

:shock: What? ( nearly choking :oops: choke choke...she was having her breakfast with mini croissant and cappuccino while reading that.... ) Do u suggest I am cheating? - I mean I did my first tries like that cause I did not know how to pixelate and I told you that! But I am learning now! - I did it pixel by pixel using the pencil tool! (and colored the dress with the line tool) (used a zoom of 600 cause as told u I got the sight of a mole :) ) so that's why it looks bigger and i had to resize it ! If you zoom on it u can see it is pixelated! (I mean in the quick look I gave to manuals on how to do pixel art things they do not mention a fixed zoom ratio to use, I did try the maximum zoom too, but I was not able to see any details when I brought it back to the actual size!) I will try though with my next pixel stuff to use a larger zoom!

Ciao ciao (a semi-offended and half-choked Topezia) :wink:

im sorry topezia, i wasnt suggesting you of cheating, wat i ment was when i look at the lines on your pixel people they look a little jagged, it looks almost like you use the pencil tool and just drag, thats still pixel art, but if you just use the pencil tool and build your line pixel by pixel the line will look much crisper, zooming in all the way helps to make this easier

And here is my tribute to Paint.net creator, Rick Brewster: An equestrian statue (lol) if you see it closely he's holding the rein and instead of a saber the pencil/brush of the paint.net logo (well add a pinch of fantasy and you'll actually see it!) I think this should go straight into the major square of Paintnetsville, Paintdotsville or whatever...(lol)

@Di Gennaro: No I did not drag lines, what you see jagged is probably due to the fact that after finishing the pixelling I always resized (made them bigger) my images cause I thought they were loosing details, anyway I did not resize this, hope you like it! (made entirely using pencil tool pixel by pixel with a zoom of 800, then just added a dash of light using semi transparent gradient)

looking good everyone

@topezia, looking very good, im going to add it right now. im proud of your for not resizing :lol: lol. I noticed your said your zoom in to 800%, this is really all preference, but when im drawing i zoom in 3200%. This doesnt really matter, wat feels right, is right. so if you like 800 stick with it, but dont be afraid to try 3200, or even 400.

Ps: i agree with putting it in the middle :P ull see an update in about 5 mins :P

*Note, @topezia, i left the 'town square' kinda bland, i thought maybe ud like to edit the surroundings.

Thanks, I copied and pasted the square and added a garden with some flowers and a gate I hope it fits o.k.(I also would have liked to add some spikes or sort of brass balls to the top of each gate bar but actually they looked awful - I still have to improve my "pixie" skills :D - ) Ciao!

salu: That's not pixel art.

oo okie i'll fix it :)

edit:

is it now?

sort of. In order for it to be real pixel art, kinda go look at the first page guys. The pixel people dont have any curved lines. There kinda sharp, and go by a specific pattern.

EDIT: It also has a somewhat 3D effect to it.

I've made a building, but I don't know exactly if it's not too big. Which size is requested?

theres no specific size requirement right now, im going to work on coming up with one. if it fits on the grid its okay. just post wat you have, worst case scenario ill just resize it.

edit:update:
