I don't get how you pixel-artists do it...
I usually animate at a full resolution and then I overlay a grid and fill in the pixels, but isn't always easy, because some parts just become messy and too hard to read.

Do you just draw everything pixel by pixel as you go along? But what about consistency of volume and getting the flow of movement right first?

Good job btw!

TriXeL responds:

For this piece, I did it pixel by pixel. No high-res presketch or anything.
I tend to think about the base as simple shapes and then add the details on top. (like the secondary movements)

When I work straight into low resolutions, I think more about how the piece looks at that scale instead of how it looks compared to the reference sketch.

The link down bellow is a piece I made that I animated first in High Res, and then cleaned up and pixelated.

There's a ton of ways to do pixel animation.
Hope this helps a bit!


cute! I like how her boxing gloves are pink :)

You should check out my art piece - cosmic icestream - we're currently side by side on the popular audio charts - I think you'll like it :)


That is very nice sprite work. Oh who am I kidding, that is amazing!

I was about to give this 4 stars, but then I noticed the shadow and the shorts, the small details on anything is what makes it interesting!

Good luck on your boxing! I'm looking forward to it! :D

Have a great day, and thank you for reading my review
