Created in DeluxePaint (on the Commodore Amiga) in the late nineties, Star Wars was one of the movie adaptations I made for Apex's second Utopia Slide Show.



This piece was awarded a Daily Deviation (2010-02-13) on deviantART: "WOW! I'm not a star wars fan but this is something to be appreciated! 320x200, 126 colors. This deviant is new to us, Please give him a warm welcome! (Suggested by ~Aerieyena and Featured by `Mistress-Jaeden)"

Thank you very much, for your help and support; I´m waiting your tutorial about Index Color, because I have no experience with this software, but Promotion have Index Color also. Thank again for your good character, you´re very friendly

Hi Victor. I build up my pixel art from scratch without any handy tools. You can do it in any basic paint programm - like the standard "Paint" programm that comes with Windows - so no fancy stuff is needed! The reason I use DeluxePaint is mainly because of the "indexed color model" (as mentioned some comments below), that's it!

I'm thinking of making a "How I pixel" tutorial to show people my technique. Basicly it works in the same way I do my line and color art: it's all about starting with a rough pixel line-out and adding more and more details / colors and refining it along the way (dither and AA). This means that I sometimes re-do parts of my pixel art as a color may change or more colors come in play. I'ts also depending on the effect I want to achieve if I dither or add a additional color.

You will see that I have many styles when it comes to pixel art - my iso pixel art or my pixel maps have a different look than my "Sweet Sugar" and "Star Wars" piece as you will see!.

To the Admin. sorry, why I can not write more than 4 lines? I know this is not the right place, but below is the example, and sometimes I can read * truncated message *. thanks


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/14/2011 15:25

I am writing to ask how you made the pixel art of Star Wars or the girl. Honestly for me it is very controversial because I can not say if it's real or not pixel art. I do not want to offend or attack you, I just want to know if this technique is accepted. In this case, maybe

....Promotion, I need some other program? thank you very much and hope you understand my intention to learn, not to destroy

If you mean by pure pixel art the bare minimalistic pixel art (meaning a limited amount of colors), than you're right Victor.

Love your gallery!

Definitly Ilija. Definitly. Thanks for the welcome!

I agree, but it were brutal and rough times!


user

Nicely put! Thanks Metaru!

I agree Mathias, there are all kinds of pixel art. This was made some years ago when the majority of pixel art was done in 16 colors. The VGA period opened up the color palette as it was possible then to use a max of 256 colors on a 320x200 screen! I just couldn't resist...

Although DeluxePaint was a bitmap paint tool I mainly used it for the "indexed color model" feature, making it easy to change a particulair color in the picture by changing that color in the fixed palette. To re-phrase: I create pixel art from scratch as well.

I must say that dithering / AA is something that comes naturally to me - it's mainly knowing the "color wheel", so you know which color to pick and by just doing it by trail-and-error!

For me this piece is a great pixel art, but not Pure Pixel Art. Welcome to PJ ^^

Where's Yoda? Or is it the one under Palpy's hood? Excellent pixel work, although I beleive 126 colors is way too generous.


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/9/2011 14:51

Good rundown, Metaru. I suppose the bottom-line is, to each his own. Theo's work is not invalid, he's obviously a master pixel pusher.

WTF, get out of this site, you are too good D:

Oasis (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/9/2011 14:27

Yeah the proportions on Han Solo are a little questionable but he did have strange hair haha. As well as Ben Kenobi. But this is rediculously rediculous none the least


user
Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/9/2011 14:02

Han Solo looks a little derp - rest is awesome :-D

as amazing as this is, you kind of made han solo look like a caveman

pixelart itself its a digital paint if you consider strictly its nature, disregard of the detail put into the pieces. if we were to categorize each work based on the amount of definition put into each work, we'll end splitting ourselves into an endless amount of imposible guidelines to determine categories that would be ultimately unfair for everyone. unless we're talking about purely functional sprites wich would then be considered icons rather than works of art. but even in that case, the masive amounts of  variables can easily make that statement crumble.

in any case, we can always agree that what defines the line between pixel art and the rest of the digital art spectrum is as thin as a pixel itself. a pixel each one determines how wide it is. it would and has been incredibly hard to reach a consensus since each person who works on this medium has a different approach to it, with its own twist and definitions. and it better work that way, because as long as people keeps working inside and outsides its boundaries i'll keep itself dinamic and growing.

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/8/2011 21:35

Very cool. I'd like to see a time lapse of you doing one of these realistic high detail ones. To see how you do dither/AA, etc. I'm not familiar with pixel art programs and their tools. I use Photoshop, so I do it all from scratch in the most minimal way. PS simply has no provisions for PA.

I almost don't regard this type of pixel art as pixel art. How do you look at a minimal sprite and look at this and categorize them the same? This stuff is in it's own class I guess. It's nearly hybrid PA and digi-paint.

Wow. Just... wow. Most pieces of this sort of calibre aroudn here end up being, at the very least, controversial due to suspiscion of indexpainting, but this is pure pixel art, without a doubt. The only thing I could possibly say is that Harrison Ford's face seems a little too wide. That doesn't detract at all from this stunning work.


user
Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 1/8/2011 18:06

This is just stunning. Most pixelartists have to take some lessons of you.
