Title: I still do pixel art, but not as much
Post by: Sinkin on December 03, 2017, 09:59:11 am
It's been a while! And I still do pixel art, but not as much as I used to.

So as a warm up I did this quick little mock up. I want to keep my focus on Zelda related stuff so I can make art in this style and maybe have enough art to turn it into a project some day. Who knows?

A new and updated artwork is coming!

Feedback is always nice  :)

the tree seems to be in another perspective, maybe change the shading/shadows a little?

Nice! The wall structure remind me of the ruins found in the Great Plateau in BotW.
I agree with Yue, the tree looks kinda off compared to the rest, out of place.
And aren't those flowers from this image? https://i.pinimg.com/736x/13/11/78/1311781da76a73bd1422f625fd842822--pix-art-game-ui.jpg

Aaaah, nice pointers. The shading is really off actually. It’s nice to have some fresh eyes on this tho, but the tree needs to be remade completely.

Yep, they are. Got a permission from the artist a long time ago to use it for my old fan game when I had some serious issues to sprite smaller things haha, but I chucked them in as placeholders just to see the whole scene. They will definitely be remade to fit the overall style a bit more  :)

Aaah ok. For the tree why not try and mimic the leafs from the image? I think those leafs are made with a method similar to the last one in this image:

(I accidentally put the wrong link before lol)

(spriting trees can be a pain, I've tried many times with different methods and failed lol)

Edit: that bug thing looks awesome! Reminds me of a Tektite. (Why did you remove the image of the wall with the tree?)

Thanks for the tip, but I want to try my own hand at the tree design, I think the new one is a big improvement from the old design.

I removed it because the more I looked at it, the more I saw things that bothered me that I need to fix, so I replaced it with a Tektite I made instead  :P

Well, I can't wait for the updated tree! (Though what I liked about the image the most was the ruins, those were fantastic)
