Indigestion can be dangerous when you belch fire.

So anyway, first fully-fledged pixel-art I've done in quite awhile. Entered the challenge because I thought it sounded neat, and I was going to spend my free time in between classes doodling anyway. As you can see, I didn't get too inventive with my subject matter.

The real challenge for me was working on a pretty large image with only 12 colors. Came out much better than I thought it would.

For all the dragon things I've done, I think this is the only one that could qualify as "goofy looking". And goofy looking dragons are like, a requirement in any PJers portfolio.

Edited some stuff to address issues brought up by commenters. Old one is here, for comparison.

I'm a little hesitant to get rid of the moon entirely, because it implies that there is in fact some sort of light source. I was kind of trying to cover my ass when I ended up making a background. Still, I like the background too much to get rid of it in its entirety...

Edit: I went ahead and changed some stuff. Look any better? I tried to make the moon smaller and put a halo around it, though it had to be green due to the palette restrictions.

oCo (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/29/2010 23:20

Kaiseto, I thought so after looking at the preview which doesn't have a background.

Personal opinion is that the moon is distracting and not readable. It can also be seen as a sort of orb floating near the creature.

Again, very nice picture nonetheless, I wish I could put out someting half as good as that.

@ Manjaman

I tried that (with the moon). It's impossible with my current color palette. It would be an ugly green or offcolor red.

 

@ oCo

Yep, that's a result of the fact that this was supposed to be a sprite, not a picture with a background. By the time I added on the BG, the lighting was already in place. I decided not to change it (too much, it got changed a little bit) because I feel it's more to the benefit of the character, at the cost of some realism.

skube (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2010 06:37

Wow that's really cool!


user
oCo (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/29/2010 03:06

Very nice character design, and sticking to 12 colours with all this ... good job!

Only thing I don't understand is the lightning: High contrast between the creature and the rest of the picture makes little sense to me except only hilighting the creature itself against the background. And the quarter circle (sun/moon ?) on the top left corner is a mistery to me.

Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/29/2010 03:00

This is really impressive, damn it 12 colors !

Your Bg would be more understandable if it was lighter though.

The moon (if it's a moon) is not fitting well into the sky, you should draw a halo to make it more readable.

The feet look unfinished compared to the heads. Really cool otherwise.
