Mr. Bleu is your average business man.
Loves a good smoke now and then, and hates people who are walking slower then him, especially old people.

This is my very first pixel drawing EVER. So i would like to hear from people what to improve.

As for it is my very first, i think i did a good job.

PS: And yes his name is Bleu not Blue

i understand.

The suitcase is shaded like that because when i tried to do it with the light from the top left it got all ugly.

Ok, your 1st drawing, but if the light comes from the left upper corner, shading of the head is ok, but what about that baggage? And if the light comes from the left side, than is shading on his head bad. D'you understand? (sorry, if you don't understand, my english's very bad)

And yes i dont really like it either BUT it is my very first drawing ever, in pixel style.

So could you give me some advice?

Spoonee (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/28/2008 10:22
Very nice style, but that shading on his head is confused ...

DrunkBurger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2008 01:49
Hm as seeing that it is rejected i will make it transparent. No other option, i just started with pixel art and did not yet got into backgrounds.

Toch bedankt ;)

The whole point of pixel art is that you pay attention to every pixel; that every pixel is there for a reason. It's a very precise art form. A lot of that is lost when you save it as a JPEG.
And yeah, you probably should remove the background. Maybe you can make the background transparent instead.

DrunkBurger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2008 15:07
Hm, thought that it didnt matter for the background. And i needed to fill it, so if its REALLY a problem i'll just remove it. 

Yes the briefcase is a jpeg. Made it along time ago when i was bored and thought i could use it. Yes i was lazy to make another one even though its just a small thing to add.

Is it really true that if its a JPEG its instantly not pixelart? :S Really? I mean, there still pixels lol.

Still, i asked for critique.

So thanks! :D

The background is from Maple Story, isn't it? The submission rules state that you should only submit your own work. Also, the briefcase seems to be suffering from some JPEG artifacts, which doesn't make it pixel art.
The character is quite nice, though.

No problem :) Maybe You have right.

DrunkBurger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2008 06:36
hehe, yeah maybe.

Never thought of that though lol :P

But maybe you can relate the spy to every person with a business man with a sigaret xD.

Thanks for your comment!

I don't know why but when I look at him I start to think about Spy from Team Fortes2. I don't say it is bad, because I like it.
