I feel a bit itchy looking at them crawl, which I think is a good sign Grin

You managed to sell me on the school movement of the fish, really cool given that it's just two pixels per fish! Bubbles too. Nice use of sub-pixel movement with chunky pixel sprites. I think the wavy seaweeds feel a bit like flipping sprites though, maybe because it's the only thing not using sub-pixel movement. OTOH you could claim it's an artistic choice Wink

The fish are actually the only objects with sub pixel movement. I thought they are the main attraction so they get to move smooth as a highlight. I too am not so happy with the seaweed. I'd like it to move more elegantly but I'm not sure how to do it. I'll have to look into making it have sub-pixel movement too maybe. Thank you for the feedback.

Edit:
Improved the animation of the seaweed (without using sub-pixel movement). It looks nicer now. Also changed the spawning of the seaweed so it doesn't overlap. New version uploaded.

Hello folks!

Please take a look at some pixel art stuff from upcoming life simulator games Roots of Pacha.







What do you think?

I wouldn't want to give criticism, because you just posted a full game.
I don't think what I think matters because you would not have time to change anything.

It looks like you didn't actually make pixel art.
There's so signs of time outside of sketching with pixels.

Speaking as someone who's done traditional pixel art for almost 15 years: these sorts of things don't really matter, honestly. Twisting and stretching the boundaries of "pixel art" is absolutely fine and ultimately the old rules and restrictions are better thought of as tools for disciplining oneself into thinking about what purpose each color and portion of your piece serves, rather than strict guidelines for determining whether something is pixel art or not.

I wouldn't have made a lot of the choices that Vigilotsky made for their art, and it doesn't really appeal to my tastes, but it's still fine to call it pixel art. At the very least, it's close enough to pixel art for it to not matter imo.

Hey pixel artists and game devs. It's been a while since I posted here, but here is the cover art for an album I worked on. Here's the Bandcamp link, below:

I'm talking about that good'ol illusionary of colored dots to bring out a world behind.

@Vilgotsky
there is nice hand painty texture work to the dirt on the ground, and the work to make grass look like grass - even the backshadows to the roof, trees, and organic chunky bits on the trees.. the fur nicely shaped over the man. You've got a thing - but it looks flat! Like a paper (doll?). And I think this could be defeated wiiith... ZELDA PERSPECTIVE. But you're doing outside work, so here are other points.

 I think you could excel your look with dithering, and color play. By color play, I mean breaking the rules and making shadows of different colors to pull out colors more* (lack of better word, rim lighting or color correction) - aswell as more attention to what colors go together to make your shapes - the places where you think you're seeing something, but it's really a trick of colors is a master play. A place where this is the most fun would be around character faces.. to escape the drawing look - smudges of color where you conceive shadows can do as much as bring out a full rosey cheeked face. *classical~* *color theory~* *ooo* just pixel art.

The last thing I think you could really really have fun with, is the color black!
Since you know the full screen - you can focus the players eyes by nulling out un-needed details of things,
aswell as create a more cohesive look by putting unorganized clunks of black where your darkest colors are.
The chunky'ness from this can really strongly do what games do.. which is look cool.

@omnilith
Harsh up-front looking comments with helpful kind thoughts behind the intentions. That's what pixel art is to me due to pixeljoint forums and the old critiques 'ere round 2005.
"it doesn't really appeal to my tastes" fix dat

Don't know if it counts as pixel-art, but i released a tool on itch.io, that let's you convert normal images into pixel art, with various filter options Smiley



you can already check it out here if you want: https://the-l0bster.itch.io/pixiroller Smiley

I'm making a fire simulation (again).
This time with even bigger pixels, and log physics.
