Pixel Part 1
Think you can pixel


all right, first I will show everything that you should have to make awesome Pixel Art. (These are Recommend By Most)

Art Programs:
GraphicsGale - http://www.humanbalance.net/gale/us/
Adobe Photoshop - http://www.adobe.com/
(GraphicsGale is for free unless you pay to have more features)

Things Not TO DO:
save it as a jpg.
Use Photoshop Effects etc.

Things i use:
pencil tool. That is basically it.

Ok, now your set.
First off try making a sprite. Just draw the outline first.
:example:

Second: Pick the Colors and fill it in. The tip for picking colors is to pick smooth colors don't do like use 5 of the Same Bright colors to make shading on it. Well pick your colors and fill in your sprite.
:example:

Then Make shading on him and ad some light. Ad whatever you want on your sprite.

Interesting. However it's not very deep. Nothing on hue-shifting, dithering, or anything else. It might help if you tried shading a more complex shape. Still, it's OK for beginners.

If it's a lightbulb, wouldn't it produce it's own light, seeing as it appears to be on (its yellow, if you wanted it to look like its off it should be greyish) ?

It's better, but still not great. You haven't really shown much besides an outline, and then a magically finished sprite, with some random tips on the way.
I think it would have been better to focus on one specific thing and make a whole tutorial on that instead of trying to cover everything about pixel art with two pictures and a couple paragraphs of text.
I'd say 5/10, it's still a massive improvement over the original.

2/10! for me, nothing in depth that would help anyone that is new to pixel art, I myself am a bit disappointed in this, as I think that you could of done a lot more work on getting info and so on.

I think you should look at more tutorials your self and that though this is a moral attack on your abilities, you could be an awesome pixel artist if you actually looked for in depth tutorials and worked more on yourself for the next month rather than others smile.gif

To be honest, pixel art is what I call hard fun...and a boredom breaker.
Its good fun and the basics are easy to learn.

This tutorial is ok, it has line art, which is a good starting point for making a sprite. But with colour and light you should read this first

Allot of minor things that will change your life for ever!!!!
