its so ugly. Plzz name everything I can do better with a next one
Well, it's all about practice, right? it doesn't really matter what you draw as long as you keep drawing.
Remember that pixel art is just another form of drawing. If you haven't got a grasp of drawing things on paper then that would hinder you whether you use oil paints, a PC and tablet or simple crayons.
cartoons are fine to draw, you don't necessarily need to draw from life but it does help to get a grasp on how shapes and perspectives and angles work so you can apply those factors to your cartoons/doodles in order to make more interesting 'camera' angles or poses.
Keep pixelling, too. I find that drawing small sprites is both fun and helps one get a firm grasp on how shapes and blobs can form pictures. Don't forget that PJ has a Pixel art WIP forum which is very useful to show off half-finished works to get some insight on how to improve the piece and what pitfalls to watch out for.
Anywho, good luck and keep at it ! ^___^
Thank you so freaking much I have been starting to draw (on paper) some live things... but i'm bad at particuerly drawing thees things so I stick to cartoony stuff most often but i realy want to be ablee to!
Oh, come now. you're not that bad. I've seen much worse. The main thing is that you tried. Nobody gets good in a day, right? i'm still working on it and i've been pixelling for years =P
Try drawing from references at this point, it feels like copying but I assure you that what you end up doing is bettering your cognitive skills and understanding how things look. (Remember that if you do draw from reference, it's important you note your reference in the pictures description so that anybody looking at your picture can note what you should focus more attention to detail on.)
Try drawing from life, maybe a person or an object and really try to capture (most importantly) the lighting and the shape of the object you draw.
try not to limit yourself this early too. use as many colours as you feel necessary until you're comfortable with drawing. This might be bad advice, i'm not sure, but it's what i think would be a good start at this point.
it turned out to be a expiriment like everything i do but im just so dumb and bad. Not to be hypocritical but I hate pillow shading too.
I'm not entirely sure what this is.. is that pillow shading on the right blob thing..? *Shudders*
Bits and pieces of this are banded, particularly the lightning bolt.
The lighting looks a little erratic too! I'm guessing you're going for a frontal light source, but the lighting is just kinda everywhere.
You probably want some more contrast on the red thing, and the lightning bold should be more centered. I'm not as good as most of the other pixel artists on here, though, so you should probably wait until somebody more educated comes around!
