Hey, people!

I am a long-time fan of pixel art, and got into it by making a graphics set for Dwarf Fortress, actually. But I decided to learn me some real (larger-scale) pixel art because the stuff you guys make here is so awesome!

So as my first submission, I put together an avatar for myself.

And also had my first shot at an 8-color sprite.

Just saw this (avatar) on some comment of yours and came to see the art. Its terrific! I had not seen it before.

Welcome! (i say that but am quite new myself though haha)

The llama's expression is priceless, you did a great job. The palette is very nice too!

Yeah, I was going to comment on that but then I took another look and thought- it kinda works this way!

You might try just shifting the pixels in the shaded areas one step darker- I think that would work.

I saw some sprites around here that did stuff like this, so I had to try it. Hopefully next time it doesn't take me quite as long. This was a pretty slow process.

He's also a little flat, I think. I lost a lot of form when I tried to fancy up the texture. So that's something to work on.


mikemayday (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/9/2012 14:21

BTW, I absolutely LURVE the texture on this guy.

Haha, yay! Hey, Mike!

I was wondering if any of the Bay12 gang was already here.

I am somewhat surprised that the Llama doesn't have iron hands...

Welcome to The Joint, bro!
