Finished some concept art for a personal project I’m working on! This character’s name is “Mad” (short for Madison), and I wish I had her outfit IRL.
It’s been a while since I’ve done anything other than incredibly self-indulgent fanart—it feels good to generate some original content again!
More information to come! :D
Doing some character design for a new personal project! :D #art #doodle #OC
Q: Hi! How did you get the pixel effect? I looked up videos on Youtube, but their pixel art looked different? thx!
So I’m not 100% sure what you mean by “the pixel effect”—are you asking which app I was using to do the pixel art (it was pixaki)? Or are you asking about the shading technique I used?
Not sure which youtube tutorials you’re referencing, but the technique I used is fairly standard—nothing fancy going on over here! It’s called “dithering” and you can read more about it here!
I don’t actually have very much experience with doing pixel art (this was my first try in YEARS), so I’m afraid most of the advice I can give you is going to be something along the lines of “ummm, mess with it until you like what you see??” haha. Your best bet is to look up other tutorials on the interwebs, and adapting those techniques to your work.
I hope that was helpful! Feel free to shoot me another question if I misunderstood your question!
All done! It’s about time I changed my avatar—I think I’ve had the same one for 2+ yrs… #pixaki #pixelart #art #portfolio
Trying out some #pixelart for an updated avatar—how’s it look so far? #art #doodle
