"but it seems like I've run out of goals or fun in doing this." Thats the problem. It sounds like you've starved yourself from actually learning and you've more or less just doodled up to this point -at least I'm just trying to relate, maybe that's not actually the case.

Not doing art is totally fine if you're not looking to pursue it as career, casual art is O.K. but the mindset that you have right now makes it sound like you want more, maybe? Like you said you don't have any goals, well you got to make some. Look at the bigger picture and ask if art is something you want to take seriously, not just pixelart but art as a whole. If that is the case there is so much more to learn, there's so many more goals and ways to move forward that aren't even related to a single medium (something other than pixelart bc it's lame :^) ). Maybe you can see where I'm going with this.

If pixelart or art isn't something you're looking at as a longterm solution to giving life some sort of fullfillment then don't feel bad about not stepping up to the plate to actually do art from time to time. Not doing art for a week, or a month is FINE! There's so many more outlets and things to do, they don't even need to be creative. Otherwsie, start learning and thinking about what you don't know.

Idk if your depression is linked directly to this, and maybe most of this stuff might be useless to you. I also struggle a lot with depression (inb4 it's just teen angst), most of it isn't linked to art but it ends up directly affecting it so I guess I just wish I had someone to tell me this when I eventually run myself into the ground (again) with my depression in the future.

Hope this gives you something to think about in the very least. People who do creative things who feel stagnant or depressed more than what's deemed "normal" does seem to be a pretty big stereotype so it wouldn't be surprising that a lot of people on this site can relate.

Hope we get a NPA gallery, that would be neat. Hopefully it would attract more people, just wonder if it's too late for that because of the reputation pj has garnered over the years.

Pixelart was a horrible idea.



 
skittle @ 8/12/2017 07:45 commented on Big Bird

Yea I can imagine that being what it is. Still tho, I thought my colours were pretty okay for some of my pieces, turns out this whole time they  were ass ;(



 
skittle @ 8/11/2017 21:04 commented on Big Bird

this one http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test  

Everything is a bit yellow but apparently it's more accurate than my previous screen. Idk Im very confused



 
skittle @ 8/11/2017 16:11 commented on Big Bird

Does anyone know that site where you can test to see if the colours on your screen are proper?

edit nvm got it

Mhmmm, hopefully I'm getting you here, sort of something along the lines of a stiffness about the piece emerging because of where perfectionism for the medium is trying to be achieved? I honestly think it's just the unfinished nature of this particular piece that is maybe what's catching your eye.
Either way, I'm happy that you think this is bringing something new to the table for you : )

Thanks tony! Been awhile since I've seen you post anything on here : )

@Taki
Yea, I do tend to spend a lot of time tweaking colours, so that's nice to hear!

@gecimen 
That's true. Idk tho, in general I do tend to like the feel of x2 for pixelart.

@andy

Aha, thanks so much man, good luck with your game :D

@beepboop pakid & Dino
Thanks guys, I appreciate it a lot!



user
skittle @ 8/3/2017 10:28 commented on bullshit shrine thing

Just changed it to x1. I figured it looks nicer at x2 and would leave a better impression since some people might not zoom in.

@pixer
Glad you think so :)

Yea, that's sort of something that I've learnt now over the past year or so. I Usually get much better results if I just scrap a thing that's not going over too well and restart entirely, even if I've put a fair amount of work into it. I think it's important to not be "in love" with the first thing you make, however I'm sure that's very subjective. I have tried to go back and polish it but I just wasn't feeling it, looking back on it there's a lot of underlying issues besides polish that could use some work -at the time I think I got what was needed out from the piece, I think. Thanks a lot jinn <3

@amorph
Thanks! Wish you had more wesnoth stuff in your gallery, your animations are gold!

@sqd
Yea I feel you. That's the big reason why I'm transitioning to digital painting, much easier to get away with a less polished looking piece.

@chrilley
Yea agreed, that's for sure the biggest spot that could use some work.

@quake
Yea I get what you're saying, to a certian degree I think you may be right -still no denying the obvious areas that are a bit of an eye sore. Thanks man.
