Please tell me what you think, shall I continue working on this one or start a new concept?

Noburo, add the words "Magikarp wins!" and I would call that magic XD

Mrmo, as always, your's is simply fabulous, even as a WIP.

Meatermen, it seems you've really overdone the dithering and it gives an unwanted texture to the cloak especially.

...What is that even meant to be, MIERDINSKY? o.o Either way it looks okay.

I might try and enter this contest if I can get a good enough idea. Here's hoping.

This is my WIP so far (about 2 hours). I need a lot of help, so please share all the wisdom you have! I'm sort of embarrassed to even post this ...but I figured I'd give it a shot.

My plan is to have some mystical power forming in his hand. I also am dreadfully afraid of shading that hand . Anyways, I hugely appreciate any help with this piece.

Could someone please give me some feedback on this dithering? It's my first attempt at using it to such an extent. With so few colors in the palette, I really want to use this challenge to practice dithering.




Posted By: Myfault
Date Posted: 22 August 2011 at 8:52pm
These are my two test to choose which is the best.

I know, I should move the texture of the sorcerer, but I liked the effect of the explosion of magic.

For some reason I love that sketch Mierdinsky made, in its scribble/oekaki form :)

Been a while since I've pixeled anything. No idea why this is what came to mind, but hopefully someone gets it.

Any comment/critique is gladly welcomed! Any idea what I can put in the background would be great, too. ;)

Aside from just a cool elaborate magic scene I was also thinking of doing a magical girl transformation gif with a disturbing twist.

here's mine

The spell is WIP but the mage is basically finished. I might add some minor adjustments though. I hope I finish this one in time to start another!

a3um : yours is looking fantastic, even though it's still rough. I hope you finish it!

It's perfect, but you have to reduce the green light.

Amazing wips so far.

Here's an update of my work:

Here's what I've got so far:


If it's not clear, it's a guy trying to bend a spoon with his mind. I'm hoping to animate it in time for the challenge, but first anything I need to fix?




Posted By: Mr Special
Date Posted: 24 August 2011 at 2:40pm
The earlobe looks a little swollen. And it seems like there's some jaggies, but that may be because it's a WIP. You're off to a great start! I'm looking forward to the animation, so you better do it


Posted By: Lathien
Date Posted: 24 August 2011 at 2:55pm
Yeah, I was trying to go for a big lobe like some buddha statues have, but I don't think I did it right. And yes, there's some jaggies, but no, it's not because it's a WIP. It's just because I suck :P
I'll try and fix them, but I've never been too good at it.
Thanks for the feedback and I'll definitely give the animation a shot, but whether or not I finish it in time is a whole other matter.

Dude. Finish this. Now.
The concept is amazing, and you only really need to clean it up.

stealthnachos, that's some sweet stuff. Reminds me of artwork in Tool albums. You definitely need to finish it!

Here's my ever so slow progress update for the night:

-do that 'composition' thing you're always talking about.

*I also wish I were a bird.

Omg Reo, that's seriously amazing, plus it looks like a crazed tf2 engie mage :D :D


Posted By: neofotistou
Date Posted: 26 August 2011 at 12:14pm
@Tarius: O ma gah! I don't wish you were a bird, because how would you be pixelling then?
You're being too modest. Your style works (and you have a style, that's still an improvement over me) and your pics always got more favs than mine do. Why would you want to spoil that?

@Reo: good job on the face. Fix the arms and hands and you're good to go

@whomever, made some small running legs this week.
Its no longer in the gallery and was a most confusing entry...where's the magic in that? Why has it disappeared? Where did it run to?

This is just too much in the oekaki side of pixels for the PJ gallery.
I see you submitted but I just don't think enough Mods will allow it in (PJ member voting isn't that good too).
Next time you start a weekly challenge entry before placing the first pixel cut the canvas by 50% 25%, then begin.

The main thing in defining Pixelart is pixel placement precision and your entry is very uncontrolled.
---------
Speaking of Oekaki...I love this Oekaki to pixels WIP
