For some reason I'm willing to learn Pixel Art these days. That's something that have been attracting me for a long time, but I decided to dive into it only recently. I'm fascinated by the understanding pixel artists have over the colors, contrasts and shadows of their artwork. Changing only a few pixels in such a piece can have impressive consequences on its overall feeling. I will have a curious look at this mastery and hopefully learn useful things while investigating it.
To make me practice, I decided to take as reference Golden Sun, a gameboy advanced game from 2001. The graphics in this game are awesome, I really enjoy them. I started playing it again from time to time, and I picked 10 game objects I will try to do as practice. My goal is to see what color palette were used and understand how it was done by trying to draw the objects step by step (little disclaimer just in case: keep in mind that I'm a beginner and these drawing steps are not meant to be tutorials, in fact it may be wrong sometimes).
Pixels from the golden sun (7/10):
o Wooden box.
o Lab marmite.
o Autumn tree.
o Winter tree.
- Sol rune stone.
- Hollow stump.
- Xian lantern.
I will update this entry later on.
As for traditionnal drawing, I must say I don't progress a lot these times. I still have a A4 octopus-type drawing and another A4 clocks golem drawing. I will want to finish them in the upcoming weeks.
Cheers fellow deviants.
