    Art assistance

    Post by Guest on Wed Sep 25, 2013 6:08 pm

    Hey all, I thought it would be a good idea if there was a thread about helping each other with art and stuff?????
    Like giving a few pointers about other people's art and perhaps share the strategies and ways you do you art. Would you all be up for that?

    Yeah I'm far from a Rockwell or Rembrandt but I would be happy to give any advice I can. Do like want people to write tutorials or like do a Q&A type thing?

    Dead thread revival. Apologies if it's not allowed.

    If anyone's still looking to do this, I would be interested in helping as well!

    If anyone needs photoshop tips/assistance, I'd be happy to help.

    If it is any other type of art, believe me when I say you do NOT want my help. xDDD

    *revives thread again*

    Hey guys! I'm currently working on some pixel art that'll be used on HabitRPG and I'd like to get some feedback on it! This is a background that can be purchased and goes behind your avatar. It's called crystal cave. :3 I'm just wondering if the background is too busy, like maybe it should have a few less crystals, and if I should put some more crystals in the foreground.

    It looks nice, I might give better opinion if I knew how will look avatar that you will put on this.

    Oh yeah, sure. Here's about how it would look with my avatar on it.

    It looks awesome! :333 Like I said on twitter, I love the framing with the crystals in the foreground. Seeing it with your avatar, I can kinda see where some of the background crystals might make it look busy, like where the values are close to the pixels on the sprite and they kind of blend together, but I do like the background on its own. Maybe making a few of the crystals darker or having them stand out less would highlight the foreground more? Other than that, I think it works great!

    I'm thinking what I'll do is make the back of the cave a bit darker, so it looks like it's further in the background. I have the background crystals set to a lower opacity so that'll darken them too.

    There we go! I added some small crystals in the foreground because it looked like it needed it. :3

    One thing, light blue crystals upper left corner, If I didn't knew it was crystal I would take it as sky. Maybe made it red or different color? Else I would work a little at shape of it.

    Anyway... OF MY GOD! it's soooo cute \(*<*)/

    Thank you, stitch! Someone told me I should make the crystals brighter but I'm not sure if that's necessary because 1) it's in a cave and 2) I don't want to upstage the avatar. So yeah. I've also submitted it for approval so the mods can either accept it or tell me to change it.

    It looks great, now it really feels like crystals glowing. I can't wait to see more of you pixel works.

    Hi there~ I'm not well versed in making signatures and avatars, so may I ask what your guys' general process is, if you make them? =] [most I can use is GIMP, so I cant really make anything too exciting x'D]

    I wish i could see ladytwi's up there x'D It sounds really nice haha

    I'm not much of an expert myself, but I usually throw stuff together in GIMP or Photoshop and put a bunch of crappy blending effects on top of it.  (I don't have much of a process, in other words. ;3 )  I'm also kind of addicted to using these pixel brushes for graphical-type things. ^^;;

    Twi's art is awesome, and also on deviantART~! http://holseties.deviantart.com/
