This is pixelation of my old hi res picture.
I've tryed to improve my dithering tech and correct pallette judgment but still sucks on it - that much I know.=)I'll keep trying on next pics.
Filax_666, you're giving me way to much credits.
English is not my native language, I probably should learn a dozen bad words to make good discussion.
Thank you, I'll defenetly try as long as it fits my needs.=)
calacver , im probably bad on exlanation or you just answering to your own thoughts.=)
I'll try again. i undestand that reducing size does not convert hires into pixel - that's clear even for me=), and again - redused image basically served me just as lineart sinse new one was drawn with photoshop pencil and choosen colors on new layer. But anyway - i already know i came to the wrong place. "Pixelart" if it's all about what i think it is actually is not what im seeking for. i want to make small clear-detailed images, i don't want to count pixels alsough i would understand that idea as a challenge.
kaltsu , im happy but mostly with the drawing process, result is just a lifeless statement the way i see it.
And I'm suck - thats a fact.=)) I admit i'm pretty old guy ,( there is one boy who call me grandpa:)) and spend all my ambitions on other things then becoming an artist. And for a pixel art...well, no offense to anyone, it just sounds too dumb to try impress anyone with the technics rather then a picture in general. So i'm not.:)
well it's good that you didn't call it pixelart, but here's the problem - this is PIXELjoint, so all works are required to be pixelart. And while this may be a really pretty picture, if it's just a trace, I'm not impressed (anymore). Sorry =(
Guys, relax. =) What ever this is - its just a picture. If content is incomprehensible all is left to discuss a quality of primering canvas.:)) I didn't call it a pixelart and I told you im suck on whattver I do. =)
Here is an original.
not my cup of tea, sorry..
i don't think that this is pixelart by definition and it doesn't look like you spent much time in that overpixeling (some areas are still looking dirty like fresh from the converter and the dithering is just in the background/surroundings)
Is that a baby I spot in the steam in between Adam and Eve?
Mordalles, That's quite alright. Alsough this one was drawn over on new layer using old one just to stay in shape, I'm not sure if what I do is actually a pixel art at all - still floating on definition. Even if it's not - it still ok with me, im no artist - just having my fun.I take a pensil, choose a color i feel is right and go on. Dont know much about pallettes yet about a lot of other stuff i should know to deside who a hell am I.=)
Zee , thats what I am - still learning.
zAk , those pics are kind of old, well - relatively old. I start pixeling last november...Well, I'll submit later.
Azrael , I'm not ready to make tutorials yet, most of the time i have know clue what a hell am i doing. Struggling between what i want and what came out.
mike2590 , if you talking about concept - it is much-much older (from ancient hindu manuscript). Probably as relict as swastika, star, cross etc. =) Every concept alredy exist even if someone just get it.
Guys, thaks you ALL for comments.=) It makes me feel uncomfortable - I never heard so many good words toward myself (most common - fool, I wonder why ...:))
Adarias, I've got same filing, but choosing between simbolizm and general art req get me in a hard place. Whole idea is to set both simbols in oposition - shapes, colors, meaning of simbols - everything. I didin't succeed on mixing green and red - looks terrible, and ruin sinus curve which is simbolically important for me. Well, I suggest it is ok as long as fire and water simply readable.
Afflict, I dramatically reduced original pic size and draw over it to change stuff along the way focusing mainly on general idea.The original image is very old - I've just learn Photoshop by then.
While I'm certain the palette could be trimmed, I don't care...
