Dreamful Tripod

Happy Pixel Day, folks! I took another stab at pixel art, and I'd be pretty confident in saying that this one is a better representation of what people think of when they hear "pixel art" than what I made last year. This character's silhouette actually comes from some chipped paint along a wall at home, and I filled in the details as I worked on this piece. Hope you enjoy!


I like it a LOT, also it kinda reminds me to hyper light drifter, anyway, very well done!

Thanks, glad you liked it!

Very nice! I have some issues with the shading of the rock with all those lines, but at the same time it's kinda interesting to look at, mixed feelings. I'll say that's a creative move. It's both traditional and non-traditional pixel art, and that's an interesting combination. I like it. This would make a fun game to play with that guy as a character.

LDAF responds:

Thanks for the review! That blend of traditional vs. non-traditional pixel art was what I was going for, and I think it hit a lot closer to that goal than my submission from last year. I'm definitely going to fine-tune that style as time goes on, at least every Pixel Day.

I like it! Nice sytle and concept!

LDAF responds:

Thank you!

This is AWESOME!

Thank you, glad you like it!

Not bad for a pixel day submission!

I suggest to add shadows and where the light source is pointing. Add shard of pointy grass on the edge of the rock where the character stands (maybe add highlight and shadows on the character). I hope this helps.

Happy Pixel Day to you too!

LDAF responds:

Thanks! The original intent was to leave the location of the light source ambiguous, but in hindsight, making it a little more concrete probably would've heightened the drama of the piece. Thanks again for your thoughts!
