Dan Fessler’s HD Index Painting Technique let’s you paint pixel art in Photoshop in a non-destructive manner, and lets you use pretty much every tool in a perfectly pixel-gradient fashion!
The article gives you everything you need to try it out for yourself.It’s easy to set up and use, and the results are so fucking cool.
pixel artists everywhere dying just so they can roll in their graves
FYI: just like the footnote says at the end of the article: it doesnt make you a better pixel artist, it makes you a more efficient one. dont expect to use this to create the next Street Figther III. the decisions that you as an aspiring pixel/sprite artist make at pixel level still apply and cannot be replicated by an automatic layer setup. You can use this to draw huge ass detailed backrgounds fairly easy and fast while keeping the “retro look” everyone loves and adores, and thats all. its nothing particulary new in the industry, though (KOF XII’s artists drew over 3D models to make those huge HD sprites, for example.).
there’s an interesting point though after reading this article, as Chasm is being sold as “authentic pixel art” (?). I know part of the selling point is on the looks, but why make it sound as if the artwork is handmade when on the other side you’re stating it was not?
It sure has been a while since i used Tumblr. Whoa.
Anyway, i’m going to hop on this craze and bring back everyone’s favorite. now with the original team along with the newly introduced Team Fotress Classic Team in the last comic.
You can check the previous Genderbent Fortress along the Team Fortress 2 Mercs & Robots I did a while ago.
(Makani, if you’re reading this, you did a fantastic job with the redesings. I’m p sure everyone already loves them)
They told me I could be anything I wanted to be.
I choose to be a robot.
The artwork i did at the Global Game Jam 2014. The name of the game, as you imagined, is “EMPATIA!”: a beat em up-sort of game about simply not giving a fuck about others. we ran out of time, but it was fun nonetheless <2
Character desings were done by Stephanie Torres.
Fun fact: one of these characters is trans.
An Art Trade.
Inspired on the beatiful works of Japanese PA Syosa and his (literally) edible palettes <2
Here’s my submission for Pixel Zine!!
It was really fun to do! Also you guys should check out some of the other submissions as well, they’re p awesome!
I asked a couple of friends to tell me their favorite RPG class, and three of their favorite colors(wich is was going to use as a limited palette for their respective characters).
Quite a nice party we got right here. working with such tones was hard as fuck though.
metal gear rising is out on pc today, go play it or whatever
holy fucking SHIT.
I just had to start 2014 with a Pyro. I JUST HAD TO OH GOD.
(cries painfully in a corner but enjoys the pleasure anyways)
And here’s a Super Rad Secret Santa gift I did for Reo at Pixelation.
Needless to say, he’s the coolest brobot a man could ask for.
(Should I make more of those?)
