Giraffes are Fucking Badass

Author Comments

An old signature I made in MS Paint for a competition back in the days. I managed to win even though I were compeeting against people using photoshop n stuff:P The theme of the competition were "animals" (in case you didnt figure that out already) so I thought I'd go with an alternative animal and give it a badass fucking angry face! And so I did...

Anyway, it took a shitload of time to do just like my other work, so I'd appriciate a review or comment or something:) And don't forget to vote!

Giraffes are kickass


Hellstick responds:

Indeed they are! Not as badass as lobsters though. Lobsters ar fucking awesome!


Amazing

That is some awesome art man. I wish I could pixel as great as you can. can't wait to see what else you have in store. Keep pixelating man, keep pixelating.


Hellstick responds:

Hey, thanks alot:) I have alot more stuff laying around that i want to put up but i've heard that each user only have room for 20 drawings so i gotta priorize the best ones:P


PERFECTION

Hand AA'ing pixel art, what fun :D

You pulled it off perfectly - and what Metaru said is completely untrue. I can see the individual pixels of the AA and see that they are not smooth photoshop-drawn gradients, but limited pallette pixels.

I'm also a pixel artist, and I understand how to do hand AA pixel art too :>
Keep up the awesome pixelling! *thumbsup*


Hellstick responds:

My dithering sucks though and im really bad at limiting my palletesXD
I've never been a TRUE pixelartist, but i still use some of the techniques - for example AA'ing. Im glad you're approving of this though! Thanks alot:)


Great job

I think you're an inspiration for MS Paint users everywhere, including me. And I would call this pixel-art above any other category the art portal supports. I really like the expression on the giraffe's face. Great work!

Firstly: Im really glad you agree with me. It's nice with some support when some random guy accuses you for something you didnt do...
Secondly: Yeah, giraffes is pretty badass:P
Thanks alot for the many reviews:D


what the heck

this shit is not even pixel art. making it on MSPaint doesnt not make it pixel Art, just in case.


Hellstick responds:

Jesus christ...
First of all: I know it isnt propper pixelart. It's pretty easy to notice the difference between this, and real pixelart.

Secondly: I was in doubbt what category to put it in, because i knew it isnt pixelart, and as souch i asked on the forums and showed them an example of what i make to make sure i could avoid senseless shit like this.

Thirdly: On the forums they told me this: "Yeah. That's ok. You can still see the pixels and you drew it almost pixel by pixel. What they don't want in pixel art is a lot of anti-aliasing and hi-res images where it's almost impossible to see the pixels. There aren't rules on how big the pixels have to be, but if you use a lot of solid colors pixel by pixel, to shade and draw, that's considered pixel art. Whereas, a hi-res image with tons of soft photoshop brushes is not."

Forthly: Do you go around comenting on each and every drawing posted in the wrong section? Jesus christ, there's WAY more obvious misplaced drawings and yet you had the urge to comment on this? You werent even right in asumption meaning that your useless review is good for nothing then dragging the score down.

Fifth: I do respect if you think the drawing suck, but thats really not the case now is it? The reason why you rated 1 and why you called it shit is because it's "posted in the wrong section". You probably dont even think it's all that ugly. You're simply hating it because of the category, and that doesnt make sense. How stupid is that:S

Sixth: "Making it on MSPaint doesnt not make it pixelart" ... WIth that sentence you tecnicly approved of the drawing...

I think i pretty much covered what i wanted to say... Next time you have urge to be a prick go be it somewhere else and do it proberly.
The troll have been fed...
