Imaginary game based on the novel "The City Above" by Kir Bulychev. I'd love to see the game made one day and the story translated into English. My very first pixel art, both on the internet and at Pixel Joint.

Thank you very much for your input d9nis!

I appreciate it a lot. I am a complete newbie when it comes to pixel art (and art in general). I was going to ask about more detailed explanation, but I have looked through your pixels and I get what you mean by examples. 

Browsing your gallery and profile also yielded one interesting finding: you're French. Alors, pour la prochaine fois tu peux bien ecrire en Francais. Je ne le parle pas tres bien et j'ecrie meme pire, mais je profite de chaque occasion pour s'entrainer.

In your very first pieces colors are not well assorted in my opinion.

One thing you may want to do for futur pixelart is to give yourself some bases colors. Like 4 or 5 and stick to it by gradually add new colors ONLY made upon gradient between them and white or black, depending of what you want to do. By processing your image this way you garantee some colors coherences.

Anyway, keep it up along your pixelart journey!

My english sux big time, so let me know if it's not clear ;)

Speccy forever! 

So maybe then you will do remake specially for Spectrum? It would be great I think.

no probs mate, its nice to see someone foreign liking our stuff

I suggest you also try Mike Gelprin, particularly his novel "Every civilized man" (orig.: Майк Гелприн, "Каждый цивилизованный человек"). He's pretty great.

большое спасибо!

Side note: I'm not Russian and I have not read Bulychev in the original, only in translations. But he's one of my favourite authors anyways.

Thanks! Means a lot coming from someone with your experience.

Concerning loading screens - indeed, that's what I was going for. I'm from Speccy clan (my first computer was 48+), so it just came up instinctively.

Pretty good for first pixelart!

Looks like retro game loading screen and I love it!
