That's cool. I was just wonderinging because Havegum posted a download link for graphicsgale. I've only used it once since I dowloaded it onto my computer. It's pretty cool for doing pixel art on and you can animate on it (I believe) and you can take the images and use them in games.

wait, pen tool is the line tool? your thinking brush tool, anyway, it is better, but sometimes its nice to have varying line thickness in there, makes it look better, to do it freehand with thin lineart you need a steady hand and to be very precise, i used to use the pen tool all the time, but that takes too long, plus now i can get just about the same freehand, now onto color, see if youve improved there, its all about practice and self improvement

I have a wacom Bamboo, is there anyway to turn the sensitivity of the tablet down?

I've picked a pallet, but im not sure if its anygood, Im useless at choosing colours.
Would it be a bad idea to take the pallet off an already exsisting peice of anime?

heres my fail pallet.

what are you doing, cel shading or painty shading? for cel shading id say sure pick out the colors from the anime, personally i never make a pallet, i make up the shades and highlights as i go along, if they dont work i go over em and make em brighter or darker, or changer the color slightly, only time i use a pallet is for cel shading or flat color work

Well, i found this, and it looks like a really nice set of colours, and the skin works very well with my work. I would like to try both Cel and the painty style, mainly for practice, as anime can work well in both.
I'd proberly do cel first, as it may be a little bit eisier.

Thanks alot for your help Ash :D
I really apreciate it.

have some help then, although cel shading is easier you need to know a bit about anatomy for it, also those colors look a bit dull, you may want to change em up a bit

Thanks for that, i can see that being pretty useful :),
I think the skin colour looks pretty nice,

It its taking me ages, as the original picture is larger than my monitor, so it takes forever to clean up the lines. sorry if im a bt slow.

Pretty good pixel art you have here, I'm impressed on the pixel-buildings you make. As for you new pic, it's looking very decent. Keep it up!

The one at the end of eyebrow; Must be traced really really badly :/
the one hanging over eyebrow; I to it made his head look more, full.

Looking at it now, i would have to agree with all of that, at the time, i thought it looked great and i thought it was a good colour, now going back on it.. Looks dead and dull

as your said.

I will change them once ive got time, but with stuff that's going on atm, that may be quite hard.
But i'll see what i can do.. It'll just have to sit there for now, like most of the other wip's :/

Thanks for your Crits guys, they really help :)

I think this is a very interesting piece and I'm liking it a lot better that anime guy that you used the line tool for. I also really like that pixel cow up there, the songs pretty good but you've got lots of improving to do.

At the moment im focusing on music, as ive been talking to the dnb artist Muzzy, and he's inspired me to make music again, so thats what im doing. you should go check him out, if your interesting in dnb.

Thank you,
The bottem was the original, but i thought it looked a little odd around the "charlie" so i decided to see what it would look like without some of the other layers, then i liked the other versions, so i got stuck on a design.
