What pixel-art should be
I really like how the missle really jumps out of the page. The text is really well-made, as is the background, and I was going to ask how you made it, but you've cleared it up for one of the guys below me. I would like to know how you made the text, though. Great job!
First of all - thanks alot for the many reviews:) They're all really appriciated!
As for your question: The text is actually a font i downloaded on dafont.com
I thought it fit pretty nicely into the theme of the sig and as souch that was the font i decided to use:)
About the missile poping out of the sig: Yup, that was actually the main idea whith this sig so im really pleased to hear that you think i succeeded:D
paint ya say? if it is paint then you are one GREAT artist! I can agree T-free with all the shadows and all that! that must have taken a LONG time to make. (am I right?)
going to my favvs!
MAKE MORE! 10/10 5/5
Thanks alot! And yes, this did take an awefully long time to make. Especially the missile because of the perspective not to mention all the AAing that had to be done:P
Don't worry though! I'll submit some more art once I get it converted into gifXD
The bomb/rocket looks really great, I like the reflex and shadow effects on it.
I just can't believe that the background is made with paint, you used the spray can, of course, but how did you manage to add those cylinders? In Paint you can't work with different transparency levels, so you had to add those in another way, but how? :O
Well... If the link I posted doesnt help clairfy your question here's how i did. It's a rather long read but it'll be helpfull:P
First of all i used the paint bucket inside the boarder to get the darkest green that can be seen to the left. Then i graduately spraypainted a new, lighter colour with a verry big spray paint (the spray paint size can be adjusted by pressing ctrl and + or - on the num pad). I did this a couple of times untill i had a base gradiant of dots. I then made the bombs in various sizes and placed them on top of the gradient.
Now this is where it becomes tricky:
To make it look like i used transperancy i had to make another gradient simmilar to the one i just made, but in darker colours. I did this by first making a box of dark green paint with the exact same green as the base green i started with, except i set the luminance 20 lower (colours->edit colours->define colurs->luminance). Then i picked the original base colour as my Secondary colour (done by left clicking with the "pick colour" tool), and selected the move object tool. Then i marked the gradient and moved it down on top of the dark green colour. Because the base green colour was selected as my secondary colour that will not be a part of the object you move.
I then redid this with all of the colours in the gradient, untill i had an exact copy of the first gradient, except every colour had lower luminance. Then i painted the bombs white and picked white as my secondary colour, and moved the light gradient exactly on top of the dark gradient.
And voila, it looked like i used transperancy:)
You can try it out if you want (and if you understand what the hell i just saidXD) but i guarantee you this was made in paint:)
Considering it was done in paint, this is fantastic. Just looking at it, I can see it must have taken a crazy amount of work to do. Just another example of the talent already on the art portal!
It DID take a crazy amount of work to do, so you're right in that asumption:)
You can see the progress in the link i posted if you just delete the space.
Thanks alot for the comment:)
This is amazing, and the fact it was made it paint makes it more amazing!
The fact that it was made in paint alos mean that it took a shitload of time to make compared to people who uses photoshop or something:P
Glad you like it!
