My second piece of work. I made this following a tutorial on how to make a cube and then make building out of it.

I didn't quite understand how this small and detail file works so I'm just uploading a cropped file of this piece on the small section. Hope I'm doing it right. D:

I tryed to make de chopper, haha, but I need more practice. I'll keep your sugestions in mind. Thanks.

 I kind of like the door off center. An epic project to do now would be to add all sorts of interesting things happening in the windows, hellicopter landing on the roof...people jumping out, fires, watter, a shark who knows? It would make a great scene for all sort's of pixelated experiments.

The first few posts here are totally the toughest. I had submitted a piece a mod decided wasn't "art" I was unaware that people could tell the artist what is or is not art. So hang tough. The C&C will only make you better...and your skin tougher.

 simple but nice

Your door needs to be moved to the right, it is off center, vary the window reflections, and add some texture details, but not too many, like in the tutorial.

A little bit too plain. I think you should have added more detail and color before submitting.

Akirax3 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/22/2012 14:17

Thanks, I'll keep the contrast in mind. The last tutorial I followed made it very clear that contrast is reeeally important.

 You probably lost some detail in compression and that's why there are so many colors now. It shouldn't be too hard to fix. Don't worry about it. I think you could use a little bit more contrast between colors. For example, the grey on the door is hard to see.

Oh, and quit arguing! Pixel Joint shouldn't be a place for flame wars.

I am so sorry, this last argument was to epic for me. I surrender.

OMG What a noob reply. Just fix that and resubmit... and stop crying.

Akirax3 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/21/2012 10:09

Yeah, I'm reeeally that desperate for attention. I even came to a pixel art forum where there are a bunch of talented guys and resized a picture of a building just to get some attention. You really think I would waste time like that? Wouldn't I resize a more sofisticated image to pass through a good pixel artist?  It took me way to many effort (for i'm a beginner) to place pixel by pixel (like, pixelating, or *click, click, click*, you know?) for someone just come here and say it is not pixel art. If this is going to be rejected it's because I messed something up when I saving the picture when finished. But as new as I am on that craft, I assure you, it is pixel art.

This is Not Pixel art! I checked the gray colors on the walls and ceiling and there are many colors such like in a reduced picture or a picture saved with bad compression of colors.

Look at this:

Apologies accepted ¬¬

Akirax3 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/20/2012 12:18

Oh, and by the way, the tutorial I used to make this building was from here. So appologies accepted. :)

Akirax3 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/20/2012 12:12

What are you talking about? I created this building from scratch.

Antiboton (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/20/2012 11:40

This is NOT pixel art. Never resize pictures.
