A tad overdithered, I might say.

Hmmm... I see. Now I have a LCD monitor and it does look a bit strange...
I'm kind of used to, tho...

But I miss my old CRT, I hate to see diferent colors depending of where I'm looking...
I really don't know for sure how my art look for the other people, thanks for sharing!

Because dither looks very different on CRT than it does on LCD or TFT. It blends much more, 50% dither becomes new colours. So I imagine on a CRT this looks much smoother :)

I actually planned for some time now to get a 2nd monitor (CRT) just to check oldschool pixelart on more or less :D


user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/8/2010 16:20

Sure. May I ask how do you know?

This is quite nice for EGA. Question: Did you make this on a CRT monitor?

Its very hard :). Check out my work http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/27125.htm where I make exactly the same mistake in trying to go for realistic colors ;)

user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/11/2008 08:06

Well, thanks for all the tips.
I'll pratice some more with this pallete!

Anyway, it's really hard to do great pieces in the first time...
But I'll search for more references and inspirantion!

Thanks again.

From my own experience I know it is indeed very difficult, and I do not believe I could do it better than you did now. However here are my tips and examples:

Don't always go for the realistic colors. If your panda becomes black with magenta instead of black and white, it might look good as well.
http://bog.old-cans.com/img/ss/commander-keen-5/commander-keen-5-ss1.gif
Check that image. Keen has a white skin there, but it totally doesn't matter. Of course the creator of this image could have tried to make a skin tone with the orange or so, but this just fits better.

Another example of that: Arg the example I had in mind is not hosted any more. Ok another one:

http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/8865.htm#
If you take a look at that building, you immediately understand its gray, even tough in the drawing there is much more blue and yellow!

Oh take a look at this, this is a good one! http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/18507.htm#
This animal would never have this color in real, still we don't immediately notice something weird is going on with that picture. Also its not really dithered like yours, its just a lot of small color pieces..

http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/34449.htm#
Ever seen a dog with a green nose?

And offcourse, it is possible to do realistic drawings with the ega palette:
http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/26441.htm#
Its just very very very hard.

So what I am trying to say is: If you go for the ega palette, also go for the ega feeling. That will improve your drawing a lot because when you go for the ega feeling, you don't need this intensive dithering!

And can you show me an exemple? I tryed many ways to do this...


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 9/10/2008 23:39
I like the composition a lot, but its a bit overdithered. There are most likely better ways to use the ega standard palette on this...

Não gostei muito do chipanzé/macaco/gorila e do globo . De resto ficou muito bom, principalmente o tigre e o panda. Não esqueci de aparecer lá na PP assim que der. o/

JinnDEvil: Yes, I know. At the moment I'm pixeling for the c64 and I have a bit of the same problem. :)

bom, se você tivesse usado um estilo mais desenhado, menos realístico, seria mais fácil, mas eu entendo oque você quer dizer. :D

user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/6/2008 17:30

As I said in Portuguese below...
It's very difficult to make the correctly tones and midtones whit this palette without abuse of dithering...

And it's my first experience btw,
if I'll make another pixel with this palette, i'll do better, I think ^^


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/6/2008 17:19
I think you utilise dithering a little bit to much but otherwise this is good. :)

user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/6/2008 17:04

Acontece que é realmente difícil trabalhar sem dithering com cores tão específicas,
As cores são muito puras, e não funcionam bem sozinhas...

De qualquer forma, valeu!


user
LandShark (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/6/2008 17:02
na minha opiniao, tem dithering demais D:

eu acho que seria mais atrativo se fosse mais limpo.

muinto bom, de qualquer geito

I tryed to make a kind of sandwich. And somehow Taco is a sandwich too.

So... yeah! XD


user
Pokapopcorn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/6/2008 16:43
xD

I can see very clearly that the panda has a cup of pepsi in his paw, but what's he eating? A Taco?
