Cliché items! :)



I'll be doing a bunch of small items for a game, so this makes for a good practice!

That's a really nice start, but you are relying on the same colors/brightness-register for all images so far. Maybe mix it up a bit?

Hey everyone! This is my first post; I'm not very active on Pixel Joint but I really want to become more active eventually. Anyway, this is my entry so far, coming in at 8 colors (so far)



I was actually going to ask how I could decrease my colors, but I think I'm doin' fine so far, haha :)

I know theres alot of pros here, so any of you got some improvements for me? I really need to learn how to properly convey depth with pixels. Tired of these shabby 2-d sprites :p

So I actually have time this week so I'm thinking of doing a whole number of these then probably combine my fave pieces into one entry. Anyway starting with the Potion Set:



Small and large Health and Magic Potions done thus far. Need 2 types of Elixer (red) and 2 kinds of Revival (Gold) but these will have different jars/viles.

Other sets will be weapons, accessories, key items etc...
As yah's can probably tell I'm fairly rusty. =/



@Levaunt - Those are looking really neat, however note you do need a background colour.

I just got a new camera so I was thinking of a detective type game.  I think I could do hand cuffs, knife and grenade but that leaves me with 3 more.  What blunt object does a detective use?

Small update. Still working out if I should go a second kind of revival or just make a remedy item so I don't need to bother with anti-venom and other stat removing items.



I'll probably just make a second healing set for ailments. I still have a whole colour available for the rest of the sets.

Inventory of gruesome bits (complete with obligatory dangling nerves &blood vessels, of course!). A fang, an eyeball, and a tongue, so far. Using Dawnbringer's 16-color palette. ^_^

Hi guys.
I'm new at pixel art and I decided to try to complete this challenge. Tell me what you think and maybe give some advice on how I must draw things.

Update:

I think I'm getting the hang of this palette. :D

@Pookaball: Maybe give the items more interesting positions, so that they aren't all perfectly horizontal or vertical & directly facing the viewer? Maybe throw a few 45º angles in there, for instance, just to make the presentation a bit more interesting. :)

Been looking for an excuse to use the 16c palette again...might actually enter a challenge this year!? :D


@Kravvon: That's the "Iso-ology" palette; perfectly fine to use...just not the same as "DB's 16". Still, nice work so far :)

Oh wow, my bad... I appear to have mislabeled the palette image file on my harddrive. Thanks for the correction!

Maybe I'll try another with the *real* "DB's 16", then, if I finish this one in time. :)

This challenge is interesting. Are we allowed to have 2 items of the same kind? By that I mean, can I fill in 2 slots with gold and silver coins?

This is my WIP by the way

- An unusual letter from "Martha" to "Henry" containing some rather suggestive language. In the pinhold, a pressed and dried yellow flower with almost no smell.

- A flask of weaksmelling liquor. The front is embossed with a poppy and, within it, the word "Virag." It is a little less than half empty.

- A potato. It is blackened and withered with age. It appears that it tried to spout once, but failed.

- A bar of lemon soap, still in its wrapper. It stinks quite strongly.

- A pair of broken spectacles. They'll need to be mended, again.

- A page, bearing a few illegible scribbles. It is slightly damp with saltwater. With it a pencil, blunted, snotty and halfway chewed through.

- A tattered and wornout handkerchief. The redness of it has been dulled with snot.

- Three coins: a sixpence and two pennies. They make a dull clinking as you walk.

-----

Didn't know we were able to draw the full backgrounds - was thinking this thing was most of the way done :(. Luckily, I have two colors left to play with!

The literary-inclined will know what these items are from. Purists will notice that one is invented and two are from different works (where the remaining five are from the same), but I thought it was more interesting than having too many different notes, letters, and newspapers.

Scrolls are better than badly made, lumpy bags, right? :D
Also, I think the bread loaf is too dithered. Welp, with, like, 3 colours left, that should be fixable!



... I'm actually thoroughly enjoying this, even though I'll most likely lose (considering my competition). :) It's been so long since I last pixeled something. It feels nice.

Here's my progress so far. Setting is some hotel murder mystery or something.

Red Liquid~ Red liquid sloshing around an unlabeled bottle. Blood? Wine? You don't want to taste it to find out.
Parking Ticket~ A slip of paper you got when you paid for your parking. It says: 'Saturday, 8th August, 2004. Thank you for using U-Park-It!'

Okay so I have the potion set finished and am working on the ailment fix item set (for lack of a term to proclaim it):





Antidote for poison, Aloe Vera for burn, Chilli for frozen and Coffee Beans for sleep.
I still need one for paralyses (which I have no idea what to do), one for darkness/blind (I'm thinking something along the lines of torch or match. Probably the match since it's a once use kind of thing.), one for silence  (Again still thinking of ideas) and an all ailment remedy.

Also, I  had to add an additional brown as my last olour since I couldn't tweak anything to work as a darker colour for the coffee beans.

@DawnBringer - One small thing, the update makes the TNT difficult to read. Although this coming from a nOOb but that's just my perspective. ^_^

I think I've updated my inventory. Still bad, but I tried drawing everything in a different way.
The small thing at bottom left is a badly drawn book.
Well, I guess everything is too tiny.

nope :) I was thinking of adding a knife, cause it's cliché, and cause it's useful for cutting stuff... but I'm not sure anymore :)

Anyways, added contrasty backdrop for more contrast.



*edit* added a bottle of suspicious cliché liquid!

Would have thought more Day of the Tentacle / Sam and Max and Larry Laffer / Space Quest ludicrous equipment inventory lists would have made it... or am I in the wrong genre?

so, i'm trying something for an investigation-game... the top four items are for photography (camera, lens, flash and film), the lower four will be common items like a notebook or a city map. I'm a fan of lomography, so i decided to do this diana camera design, though you wouldn't use such a camera for professional observation...

Alright... this seemed funnier before I pixelled - now it is just a bit weird. Brains (to give to zombies) and a gimp suit... I know its not good fashion sense but full body leather protection stops zombie bites - who cares how you look after the zombie apocalypse? Need to rethink this...

Any critic is welcome!

I'm also trying to think of some form of health potion but in the style of this world, Suggestions?

Also, I really like how kravvon's is coming along, Nice pixeling!

Mrmo Tarius, Fantastic as usual!

and just a big round of applause for everyone else!

+ a stomach. So only one more to go:

Going to attempt a brain to complete the set, but I dunno if I can pull off a satisfactory squiggly look at this scale...

@Frogger5: Hehe, means I must be doing something right. Nice shading on the diamond there, BTW.

@gogglecrab: Thanks mate. :) Re: your piece, I think it might benefit from a bit higher contrast, specifically a darker background to make the items stand out a bit more. Also, watch out for banding on the outlines. ;)

@Dawnbringer & Mrmo Tarius: Yum!
