Quite awesome, but there's a fair amount of rough-looking edges.

So first thing on Pixeljoint, I'm still a newb but hey I like it. :3

use less dithering, and pay attention to the anatomy of that arm, at some pint feels like an elbow and a few bones are mssing there.

oh, and about mr.tsuyoshi, i'd take that tear away from the image... for my taste it looks better w/o it.

Hehe Ricki, exactly my thoughts, so I decided to be the first :P And thank you!

DaMehMan, keep it up, your piece has potential, just build upon it!

Mr. Tsuyoshi, loving yours!

As I'm a pervert, LadyHazy's piece is also interesting in my opinion ;)

Tomic's is just plain awesomness so I won't even try discussing it.

x-death, sorry mate, a bit too simple, feels unfinished (you posted it already for the competition I think?)

BuBu, nice start, work on it!

PixelKiwi and RobbiE, LOVING your cycs too.

A.B.Lazer, good idea, but needs more effort.

Shawn keep going, looking good.

Karzahnii and Keeper-of-Styx, keep on going, like where you're heading at.

MFlanga, yours might be one of my favs :3

Tunc, nice, but good elaborate it a bit.

Dr D, nice start, hopefully you'll add something to the background.

JthmNny, looking nice, but not sure what they'll say about char's that have lost their 2nd eye :o

Skamocore's one is teh awesomeness!

(sorry if I missed anyone)

And here, next wip (sorry editing quite slow, but I'll try to speed up today):

Heh, I'm pretty new at this too, but I'll try to say something.

Firstly read the comments on your picture, they already give the general idea of what's wrong: http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/40920.htm

That said, my first impression was some kind of blob jumping above a platform. I guess the biggest problem here is that it's not understandable what is what. If, for example, that's a waterline there, it should affect the monster's coloring/shading/shape atleast a bit, so that we can see that it's submerged in something. The picture just gives out a feeling that either your monster is floating in the air, or it's just posted on top of everything else.

Hope I helped. :)

yeah i knew that i need to shade he bacground water and find some way of fixing the character floating thing. i just don't know how!

if i knew what colors to use in everything then that might help but i've tried practically every set and tried all colors in almost every combination i could think of. and nothing is working! that is why i asked for advice... :(

i've made topics and everything trying to get advice on how to fix this and its making me angry the more things that fail. because i would like to see at least one of my peices actually work for once!

Current WIP:

(not ready yet, but can't edit it for some hours...)
(I think I might remove the shading from the hair)

x-death:
I would advise applying a bit more dithering atleast to the character, darger from bottom to the part where he breaks the surface. Also, more realistic waves to the water, maybe like a ripple from the point where the monster breaks the surface :)

Thanks JthmNy,

in a way I like your new piece much more than the old one. The first thing that comes to mind is the word cute :) Only critique I can say is that it feels a tad unfinished (and it probably isn't ready yet?). But overall nice shading dithering and I love your cute little cyclopes :3

Man Diferent monitors makes it look different, damnit.

I just work on it while im at work, and im no longer at work so I cant finish it, I'd add a tad bit more but i get to busy once im home, so its finished for now, maybe next contest I can put in a bit more work, but it was fun, also that zombie one was unfinished but its all I could do @ work (tech support ftw)

and I wasnt sure how to draw a female cyclops, so I gave her eyelash's, I coulda done hair but I was running out of time :P

and the shadow behind him could use work, but thats a pain in teh ass pallete, I shoulda gone with the one everyone else has been using, that dark grey woulda been really handy, but this showed me yellow/purple sky is wonderful :D

Yeah your sky's working out pretty fine there. I would've done the hair mate, as the thing that mostly distinguished male/female for me was the clothing :)

WIP (dunno it might be finished):

[Edited already lol]

Commens anyone before I submit it... Though I might come up with something myself :)

yeah try adding a background to it. and on the wrist band on left arm towards the bottom there is a pixel that sticks out. looks really pink.

also just a possibility but you might be able to do something with the hair and pants.

Which pixel exactly, I'm sooo tired right now that I can't think too straight, but I'll try to do something with the pic on the weekend if I have time. Though I like it against the back background, but you're probably right that I should do something.

Shading Shading Shading... and oh dithering. Your background just looks like a flat shaded surface. It doesn't look like there's a head. You have to give it more dimension and shape. CURVES DAMMIT!

looks great to me, i'd rather work on a non-checkboard dithering. and put an eye on the teeth's lines, they're not really following the perspective of the image.

Actually, the background /is/ a flat shaded thing - the thing i was drawing doesn't have a face, it's just a floating eye and mouth. I'll fix the teeth later though. Thanks!

edit: Eh, might as well submit it as it is. I have stuff to do today and can't be bothered to finish it properly.

Hmm okay I see. :< But the picture in my opinion doesn't give that impression. But the eyes and mouth, those are pretty neat :)

Also I'm loving the entries in this competition so far!

thats called dithering. its basically a small optical ilusion used to generate an extra color in situations where a fixed color palete doesnt allow you to add new tones.


PS: i forgot

i just got raped by exocet.
