Update:

http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=769&PN=1&TPN=1 - SquirrelSquid's Tile-Art Tutorial

I encourage anybody with a tutorial not listed to send it this way

Pixelblink: What I meant was that you should clarify your post here.
From what you told me, 'I encourage anybody with a tutorial not listed to add it to this thread' would be a clearer way to say it.

..
Placeholder post (GIMP pixeling tutorial, no URL yet.)

Edit: So, what, you assume everyone thinks in the same euphemisms? 'Send' implies PM; you don't 'send' posts to the board.

seems quite simple to me. Why post a placeholder? Seems pointless until you actually have something to show... as I replied in my note to you

I made 4 different articles on how to do a basic animation in grafics gale but no one had ever given me feedback on if it makes sense ( I tried to make it for the "I know nothing about grafics" kind of person)

Would be great if someone old member from Pixelation.cjb.net could post here the list of resources.

I am pretty sure either Bisque or Morganne has it, because I recall one of them reposted it, after pixelation broke down into 3 separete forums (?).
Other old members like Wolverine, Helm, or Indigo (from the few I can remember) might have it as well :D

Id be very grateful if this list could appear once again, meanwhile Ill try to check if I didnt save it myself :p

I believe references from life or photos should be your main help. The only tutorials you should need are the general pixelling ones.

I've never tried to pixel a background/sky before so using a reference photo isn't something I would find easy, That's why I need a pixel tutorial...

But that's like asking for a tutorial on a specific yoghurt pot. It's far easier just to study the yoghurt pot and use your general pixelling skills to get it done. You can always use a WIP thread if you're stuck.

"Using hypertext, a link is a selectable connection from one word, picture, or information object to another. In a multimedia environment such as the World Wide Web, such objects can include sound and motion video sequences. The most common form of link is the highlighted word or picture that can be selected by the user (with a mouse or in some other fashion), resulting in the immediate delivery and view of another file. Also called hypertext link and hyperlink."

the best part about graphics gale is if you right click on a color (while in pencil or paint bucket) you switch to that color... thus no eyedropper

But it really isn't isometric grass as much as it is how games employ isometric tiles. You could look closely at his tiles and others in the gallery and study tiles from isometric games.

Mini-tut for antialiasing; much more approachable imo than my old, advanced + technical tutorial; This one is just about rendering AA in a basically sound way.

(Based on a post I made http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/19052.htm - here )

In brief, antialiasing is a way of approximating sub-pixel shapes; the most common (and best looking) of these shapes is a triangle which spans from one 'stair step''s outer corner to the next 'stair step''s outer corner.
This means that at one corner, the opacity is 0%, at the other corner the opacity is 100%.
See this illustration:



Anti-aliasing in pixel art approximates that opacity gradient with the available colors (see the version just to the right of the top left corner.)

Curving modifies what opacities are appropriate (see the top-right corner of the magnified pic; it's corrected for curving); but mostly, triangular AA looks best and you hardly ever need something that is very different from triangular AA. Just antialias triangularly along vertical, horizontal, and diagonal (45 degrees) steps, for a start.

lol I like 4 more than 5.. stupid computers!
its hard to see the difference between 3 and 4.. I think you could delete step 3..

yes, although arguably the computer's rendering is more circular.


its hard to see the difference between 3 and 4.. I think you could delete step 3..

Maybe it needs some text:
1. Un-antialiased
2. Diagonal AA
3. Vertical and Horizontal AA
4. Diagonal inner AA

Since I've emailed robotriot about updating AAC to calculate antialiasing colors correctly, and not yet received a reply, I will quote my mail here to help people be aware of this issue:

----
Hello. As far as I know, your program AAC calculates antialiasing
colors wrongly.
http://mymentalray.com/wiki/index.php/Gamma - http://mymentalray.com/wiki/index.php/Gamma

if you read points #1 and #2 of 'Gamma 101' on the above page then you
will understand why.
Accounting for gamma is fairly simple:
rather than using the formula

(a + b) / 2 to calculate the antialiasing

instead:

divide by 255 so each input color is in the range 0..1
exponentiate by 1/2.2 (ie. .454545454545)
calculate the intermediate value (ie. (a+b) / 2)
exponentiate by 2.2
multiply by 255

For example, interpolating between black #000000 and white #FFFFFF,
the correct result (that is, the color that is at the midpoint of
those two colors, according to a human eye),
is #bababa
rather a large difference from the uncorrected interpolation  that
your program produces
#7f7f7f

I know AAC is an old hack (putting it in 'trash' directory makes that
clear), however since it's still linked (from Pixel Joint) and I
expect people still use it, could you take the time to update it to be
correct? Personally I spent a long time being confused about color
behaviour on computers until I learnt about gamma from this article:
http://www.4p8.com/eric.brasseur/gamma.html - http://www.4p8.com/eric.brasseur/gamma.html

and I hope that updating AAC could help save some people from that
kind of confusion.
---

(email ends)

Note: Getting the best results depends on having a well calibrated monitor -- see http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ for LCD gamma calibration.
However, regardless of whether viewers have well adjusted monitors, accounting for gamma when calculating intermediate colors will significantly improve the quality of color choices and the resultant picture.
Antialiasing becomes a lot more sensible and easy to do, too :)

I did a quick web search and stumble in this http://www.douban.com/group/topic/3122211/ - site , which list a lot of links similar to the original Samson list.
Though, some are repeated, there are others that can be quite helpful, specially for art in general.
My personal favorite is the "30 second pose drawing".

This is from 2007 and the original Samson List dates back from around 2004-2005, so I apologize in advance for all the broken links. If I have time, I will try to remove the broken links and add new stuff too.
Feel free to add to it as well.

Have fun.


EDIT: Updated several of the top links. :)
