download graphicsGale free version and I was wondering if you have the ability to run games off of it or import certain images into a program like Gamemaker or anything like that.

Why am I even doing this!
I'm supposed to do more important stuff, like collab entries, anotomy practice and the likes!

Or perhaps get some sleep ...

Either way, I'm sure the time spent on this wasn't a total waste ...

I like that little animation. Doesn't seem choppy to me, though that could be my computer/my browser.

Do you have any tips on how to do pixel art? You're pretty good at it, and I want to make some. I've got Graphicsgale, but I still have no idea what I'm doing.

Probably that then

Do you have any tips on how to do pixel art? You're pretty good at it, and I want to make some. I've got Graphicsgale, but I still have no idea what I'm doing.

Okay, I'll give it a try

When I do stuff, I have pretty much set how I want it to look like.
I usually create a drawing in my sketchbook on how I want the finished piece to look like real quick.
Then start working. I usually set the canvas depending on what I wanna work on. If I make it too big, I usually get overwhelmed by all the pixels. around 500X500 for buildings 100X100 for "big" objects, and 50X50 for smaller stuff, or short animations ...

Then I start working the outlines. First, I get the rough shape of it real quick, and then I'll just clean it up till I'm happy with it's look.

Next I decide what colors I want it to have, and make a color ramp for it. Usually one ramp per color. Just select one color and make around two colors both ways (lighter and darker). the differences between the colors should not be too low, cause that would make the color look bland and boring. I usually pick a color from the palette as starting point and change it till I like it before i start working on the ramp.

I usually color on a layer below the lineart, and then color the lineart on a layer above it.

That should be about it I think ...

If you're doing isometric pixel art, remember to know the rules (before eventually breaking them)

hey gumby, thats pretty nice. you should include spheres and probably something a little more complicated like another complex shape and then add that to the Art Portal as a simple tutorial.

I'd 5 it... and probably fave it too....

That is an artists depiction of a sea serpent the artist has probably never even seen a real sea serpent. Although they have called it a sea dragon sea serpents in real life are not dragons.
