I thought it would be cool to have a topic to post your current pixel work, Ill start it off this is an animation im working on.  only the color is blocked in so far with a bit of shading and alot of the lines are still sketchy but im just trying to get the form of the animation right. Any crits.  It would be great to see what you guys are working on so post away.

Is he dancing or walking? If he's walking you might want to make his legs bo back a bit more, but if he's dancing it looks great. Like this bigass dude who's reluctant to get jiggy wit' it so he just does that. :D

I'm working on a mockup:

This is the gameplan:


It'll prob'ly never get made, due to me not having the patience to do graphics for an entire game, much less one of this scale. Still a cool idea, I thought.

I don't consider myself a pixel artist, but a generalist. I can do a little pixel art, but it's never been my focus, and I prefer to work with people who are focused as artists and have them do the art in my games rather than create the graphics myself. But here's what I've done.

- http://pics.livejournal.com/rinku/pic/000b93re.png (a recent sprite I created for the 2007 Miss Pixel contest)

- http://rinku.castleparadox.com/Septa/ohrmonthly/FIFTH.gif (one of my older games, back when I did all the pixel art myself instead of getting my real pixel artist friends to do it)

actually he was supposed to be walking but sort of a lumpy heavy walk, like his back is really heavy and his feet just slap down, ill try and fix that thanks for the crit Xion.  Your mock up looks awesome i would love to play a game like that. I especially love the enemy graphics.

real art looks like the mona lisa or a halo poster and is about being old or having your wife die and sometimes the level goes in reverse

I don't do a lot but everything that I've done recently is on my gge page below. At the moment it's a placeholder tileset and a jumping miner guy. I'm spreading myself over graphics, gameplay and tools all in my spare time at the moment so progress is pretty slow.

Might as well post this here too. Still a WIP and I haven't worked on it for a while.

I posted this in other forums, but the only game related pixel art I made was for the old grayscale Palm Pilot. The game was abandoned by its original author before my graphics were put in, unfortunately.



But damn, I want to do more stuff, since this is years and years old... but I simply have no time!  Cry

I've decided to start making an effort to get good at animating my characters. That's probably where I fall down hardest. So I created a little skeleton guy for a template of a semi-remake (i.e. kinda like it but completely not) of the NES Kung Fu game, funnily enough titled, Kung Fu. So here's a guy punching and kicking and also doing a groovy walk:




It's the first time I've used more than 4 frames for a walking animation, I'm so proud of myself. Although I think it needs one more  Wink

And for reference, here's the original animation attempt:


Clunky aye?

You'll find you get a much more natural walk if you make the left arm move in the opposite direction to the left leg. [edit] I mean the right arm and leg. Well, I mean both. The arms should move in step with the opposite leg.

That tunnelly game looks pretty sweet, Adamatomic.

Cheers Anthony, rewired it (and that's the fun of animating in 5 colours, it takes about 5 minutes to change it):



So it doesn't turn into a art improvement thread:
Some awesome mockups here, and if you don't make a game with those sprites Xion it will make me sad... I could watch that stabby-stab-stab animation for ages...
And Evil-Ville, that pic is immense already. It didn't load for me the first time so I didn't understand what people were looking at  Embarrassed

"You'll find you get a much more natural walk if you make the left arm move in the opposite direction to the left leg."

I noticed that about the animation too. In the Ohrrpgce community it happened all the time, and it always annoyed me.

It's fun to walk like that in real life, though. Makes you feel like a door.

C'mon guys! More sprites please!



Possibly subliminally inspired by Mr. Balding. This guy is also bald, but he is only a mere henchman. One of those middle-aged parents going through a mid-life crisis and deciding to learn karate only to find themselves recruited into a evil dojo master's Tower of Death despite only knowing one grab and punch move.

I hate it when that happens...

That's a good sprite. If you want to make him look tougher, you can make the punches snappier (more windup, faster frames, etc.). Or you can probably make him look like an old guy throwing fists by making his form a little thuggish (sloppier, swingier punches). Or you can keep him how he is and make him say funny old guy stuff.

OK, I uploaded the animations I've done for my player sprite as GIFs.






Cor, I just noticed that his legs are the wrong way around in that pushing animation.  Huh?
