I will also be sure to make changes when needed. Any suggestions?
There is a customation icons category but what if it's not an icon?
I don't think the categorization system knows about 'fuzzy' pixel art that uses pixel art and other tools that don't belong to this medium. You can probably just put mixed media pixel art into the pixel art folder and nobody would probably care anyways..
Except for snobby purists...
Cave Story..? >.<
This has helped so much
That tends to make my projects on the larger side. Well, at least the newer stuff.
I can't imagine one to use it for starting drawing as it only shows mistakes but doesn't show correct ways to pixel.
Also when reading this artcle i was absolutely bewildered with diagram. I was always taught that examples must illustrate clearly what you are saying.
I'm really sorry if my comment hurts you, but i think that clumsy tutorals even from brilliant artist are harmful for beginners. That's the reason i stop myself from making a tutorials.
My diagram was made with an intent to say that it's the amount intent put into each pixel via drawing them individually. I also used a variety of styles to show that what makes something pixel art has almost nothing to do with how visible the pixels are. If people paid attention to the label on the X axis, I think the diagram did a good enough job of that.
It would be possible to add a section on correct ways to pixel, but I trust that people will be smart and know they need to work suitably small and draw with mentioned tools on the very top.
You may ask some groups to add link to tutorial for better decription what pixel art is (ex in section "why you disapproved my brilliant piece"), they should also want to improve art quality here in general.
Also, if you want to ask me what tutorial i want you to write, i'd asked you about your palette choice, AA and dithering. That's your strength, definitely. First, you manage to use both of them in one icon, and second, you know (or feel) where they should be used and where not.
Also, it's not that I'm trying to get groups to use this guide as a guideline, but those two groups literally needed something easy to show what is pixel art and what isn't. I admin pixels-unlimited so this becomes a convenient copy-paster. The-pixel-artists once posted a journal about how they need to start main sure only pixel art gets in, but I remarked that it's funny that even their features folder has a couple of things that isn't purist pixel art.
All other pixel art groups, I'm not terribly concerned for now. Maybe submit them to pixel groups but I won't bother with their business.
I really don't pay attention to anything around me <_<
And your pixels are amazing, by the way! ^^
Thank you for this
Because you should actually micro-manage all of the pixels!
I'll use this as a guideline for our group - I hope you won't mind that c:
