Pixel Golems

Share

Hey guys, I was wondering if tracing over EBF art would make drawing pixel art faster… but nope, not really. If you set a swf file to low quality and scale it down, you’ve essentially got aliased pixel art, but it’s very messy and requires so much clean up, that I basically ended up redrawing everything. These golems are the biggest pixel creatures I’ve drawn so far, and they took way longer than all the others for sure. I really wonder if pixel artists get much faster with practice, cause what you see below took a little more than a day to do. Animating pixel art of this quality must take a painful amount of time, especially since you often can’t motion tween it like with other 2D art. I can see why most games doing pixel art stick to Terraria levels of detail and animation quality.


Anyway, I’m sure I’ll eventually make a game using all the pixel art I’ve been doing, but the foes definitely won’t have more than 2 animation frames.


Anyone tried doing pixel art? How long does it take for you?

I mean, I think you could use motion tweening with pixel art. Undertale does that (or at least that's how I think it works) - it has the separate parts that move without the motion being confined to the pixels. It's just a different look. I guess what I do for pixel art is I start off at a low resolution or a big brush size, make the basic forms, then bump up the resolution or bump down the brush size to add details. I think that's because I started making pixel art by using piq.codeus.net, and that has brush size buttons.

I love these golem designs! I can tell you worked a long time on them. Really nice work!

EPICo

WOW IS SO COOL,I KILE IT !!!!

Right now I've done better wotk with pixelart than digital illustration (although I only started digital illustration a couple months ago)
But yeah, you're supposed to work in a small scale otherwise it becames very time consuming. I once a video comparing different sprites' size from "small" to "large" and I think your golems would fit well in the "large" category, so it still is a manageable scale... unless you're doing it all yourself (well, it's what I thinking now)
