Just pixel a scene where the character is like "oh my god!", or just a scene that the title could be "oh my god!", but replaced with "Egads!"; but the word itself may or may not be on the final art

Hi there!
This is my first post in this forum so please forgive my bad english.
I'm going to take part to the weekly challenge but I've never drawn a non-isometric pixel scene before, so If you could give me some tips I'll be grateful. This is the "egads!" sketch: cthulhu awakening... I couldn't find a better "egads" situation! : S

My idea was to have a drive-up window and the woman's "bazooombas" made you say "EGADS!".. don't know how it's going.
I am having trouble with
-facial features
-shading skin
-her arms
 
all c&c will be helpful.  Thanks guys.

If these areas give you trouble consider (while you can) redrawing it all like half size of what it is now.

This palette calls for bold moves. Use colors together you would naturally never do and leave the neutralizers for the blends. This palette is one of the funest to play with.

yay but it's not easy to make that bold move... but i just don't wanna quit on that one.
i just gotta abandon that "usual" shading appeal... guess that's why this is giving me such a hard time...
not that easy for something like a first timer...

damn... gotta get brave on this one ;-)

the right ones are CGA, right? i found those on the left in the search engine here but... damn... i got a problem "feeling" those color combinations in an image even though they really fit... guess that's what you meant with going bold... damnit - learning is a bitch :D

Using neutralizers is the key to palettes like these. All those are EGA colors. Notice that what makes two colors work is the netralizer between them. Neutralizers are a key ingredient in ALL pixelart. A neutralizer is commonly a 'grey' but often many other colors can be too.
2nd row 6th position for example has green as a neutralizer. Who woulda thunk it o.O

Well, hello, this is my WIP so far and looking at it right now i feel that the outlines here do not look as good as in my editor...
Ok, if it's hard to read what's happening, they're monsters. Something like micro giant fighting monsters that someone's gonna see through a magnifying glass and shout "Egads!"... maybe. Or on tv, i don't know yet... any comments? Am i going in the right direction here? Thx!

Setz knows better, we can't allow that in the gallery and when the first parental report comes in will be removed from here too. Anyhoo, its totally funny and I downloaded a copy to my HD ;)

@DeathodaDay, a neutralizer in pixelart refers to a single color whose sole purpose in the art is to make other colors blend so that you don't have to add a bunch of colors. Greys are normally chosen but it can be just about any other color too.

Row 2 position 1- uses green as a netralizer between the ywllow and the orange
Row 3 Position 2 - uses blue as a netralizer.

Read the interview with adarias in the gallery for more nerditude.

This is my WIP. Please tell me if you like it or not XD. It took my a while, because I accidentally saved it as a jpg, and had to start again :(

Major problem - My WIP is going reasonably well - still a lot of work to do but I have 17 colours- I thought I had only used the 16 of the challenge - its probably a rogue pixel or two from my prep sketch, but I cannot find it - any ideas?
 
Also - any cc

@Igthorn. Maybe it's transparacy (if it's in it). that counts as a color too

Try editing the grass, it looks too plain much like the valcano background. And some of Watson's hat is gone. Also how did you count how many colors you had?

It looks like it's the color rgb:  0,170,173 which is in the magnifying glass, sky and a few other places.  It doesn't look like it's part of the ega pallette.
It should be a 0, 170, 170

Hi there! 

 

Did you see the movie Hellboy II?  There's a forest monster in there that kind of takes over the city by covering everything in plants and stuff - it's about the size of a 6 storey building... The cool thing is that you can still make out the original shapes of the cars and bikes and stuff under the plants!

It might really bring the Edags into your pic!

I suddenly realized that i haven't even thought about the background... any suggestions where the monsters should be fighting? I had the idea of putting them over a breakfast table, but there's no explanation why should anyone have a magnifying glass at breakfast, right? Anyway, thx!

Quick update as promised.



Hopefully I'll be able to get it finished. Sorry about the lazy background but I couldn't think of anything to put in there. Any ideas there would be super helpful :) I'll finish off the arm, probably put a spiky bubble around the letters... possibly other things XD

Please please C&C!

@ generatedanomaly
 
hi! I really like the expression you captured.  I think the way the background is on the right hand side is actually cool, you should transfer it to the left side also.  His lips are very, very thin.. maybe bulk them up a bit.  Very nice work!

Hi there Feniks 
Looks like Igthorn is taking over Gummy Glenn!  (Just kidding!) 
 
I absolutely LOVE the idea - Egads the Pope and all!  You could, maybe, add that gorgeous regal red in the background, bringing in something of the papal office's gilded decor maybe?  Or that famous scene in Angels and Demons where they show the Pope's bedroom - huge headboard - just to give him a little context - again - really great concept!
 
PS:  I KNOW what you mean - technology!

@Generatedanomaly:   Absolutely Egads! 

I can't wait to see the final product!  I think the background suits the style of the text you used so maybe adding axtra will detract from the impact of the current message - unless you want to maybe add a suggestion of what he is seeing to contextualise the egads-ness - anyway, I love it, great pic -

So here is my WIP. I'm not very good with the limited colors, but its all fun
I know there's lots to do still, any c & c would be much appreciated.
Things left to do:
 - Fix shading
 - Redo water
 - Maybe add black shading

Thanks

Umm... It is a very nice image but I am bothered by the dark duck's buldge by his beak (I know its his wing but it looks a bit big). Also I don't know whats wrong with them but the feet look all wrong... other then the grass being added I think it looks good.
 
Also I have just finished my submision but I want last critiques before I submit it.
 
 
C&C please, I really want to hear what you guys have to say.
 
Edit: Just submited it to newgrounds!

I see you added some new buildings, nice!
- About the monsters, i specially like the sun bathing devil on the rooftops.
- Don't know for sure if that monster falling from the window is a mummy or a skeleton, but you could still use one of them here.
- And just as a last suggestion, i think it would be nicer if the reaper faced that scared guy.
Nice work

Quick update, added eyes and tentacles. The white diagonal lines resemble it's coming towards really fast. Should i place the worg Egads in the picture, cause if you're about to get eaten words aren't necessary :)

Ok... This is the complete work... but... I really don't like it... Could someone please tell me why? :(
I wish I had an outstanding idea like Setzer XD

Hi there Mis-BUG, the palette is very hard to deal with.
I'm not into the compo, but maybe a little less dithering would have saved a little bit the noisy feeling.
just IMHO, and btw nice work anyway.

I think that if Cthulhu wasn't as dithered as everything else is, he'd be more readable. That area around the tentacles and shoulder is hard to read especially. Nice work!

This is Igthorn posting as Igthorn from Igthorn's computer. Please CC my WIP ASAP IYHO(that sounds so wrong)

I have removed as much black as I can from the image using it only where I think its crucial but would love some feed back regarding the rest.

Many thanks

Thanx for the vote of confidence @celri !

Been throwing your idea around but seems a bit complicated. So thought I would imply a chair rather than change it all. I also eliminated all the black I think was unnecessary. the green backround was also not working for me... not very popey if you get what i mean...   
 so this is how far i am... any cc is appreciated.
 
lets just  say i feel humbeled by the other entries...

I really like the "popish" chair already!  Keep at it!  You might want to look at the function of the text in your work - it's indicating the obvious "unpious" obsesion with Dan Brownian "mythology"... but maybe you could emphasize the text in a way that makes it prominent to the un-Dan-Browned version of society... again, your idea has a LOT of potential!!!!!

Perhaps give some volume to the face - like extending the shadow from the tiara down into the face and then shade the fingers as well

Thanks Peach and Jeremy for your replies (and of course for your tips)...
I tried to make a noisy one using dithering because I wanted to make it feel like a real old fashion EGA game back from the '80... Perhaps I've gone too far XD
Anyway I think I don't like it because of the sketch and colours arrangement too, but now I've no time to do it again :S ...
I think I'm going to submit it anyway and keep your tips for next work... Thanks again ;)

Oh man... 12 hours to go and i'm not even close to finishing my piece . Now there's no reason to post the WIP anymore hehe.
Then again, i'm gonna go for the challenge anyway!

Hello there, i submitted my piece to the challenge a couple of hours ago and it's pending approval now. I just want to know if there's a chance of it being rejected, because of the countdown... There are still 11 minutes left. I'm just asking because i really don't know how it works. (and i'm scared)
