I read some tutorials about pixel art and got my mouse ready to do some painting in Gimp. After spending this day to draw some stuff, I must say that I kind of like doing this stuff. It takes ages to draw, and I have no clue about how to get the stuff look neater… but it’s bloody fun.
Here’s first arctic scientist (don’t know how much time this took… 30 minutes? Hour? Who knows, lost track of time)
After reading some more, and attempting doing bit more detailed stuff, I managed to get this done (in maybe about 90 minutes, including some web browsing in pixel art gallery):
The larger version is bit blurry, depends on your browser capabilities. Okay, scaled these in Gimp.
Next step me thinks is to try and see if I can somehow animate one of these poor bastards. I intend to first try drawing the animation as explained in this tutorial and see how much time that takes.
I believe this will be sufficient at least for the prototype.
Anyone else like to do pixel pushing? I enjoyed this.
