take a look at the creation of this tegaki if you haven't already. how he does his thingie is kinda unique and more time consuming but maybe you could try it, just draw your ocs like normal and then try converting it into pixel art. also I think you should go back to outlining some parts of your characters. you could try to use some darker colors for the outline instead of just black. take a look some sprites from gba games like pokemon emerald or fire emblem

anon who drew >>659356 here
i agree, it's really not, but tegaki isn't made for pixel art and I just like counting squares for no reason + i wanted to make it bigger.
ideally you'd have the pixels be formed at the right size as you draw instead of needing to count, and you could probably upscale it from there. I'm just autistic lol

the whole idea is to lower your resolution on purpose as if it could fit in a retro game, where usually seeing the pixels is a prominent part of the work. it's far from being the same as just drawing on a smaller canvas

I was going more for blasphemous game's cutscene art style or stuff like the VA11-hallA character art or hell even those shady hentai sprite gifs
i mean it doesn't alway have to strictly game sprites right?

a lot of what works with pixel art is actually the color palette and typically high contrast, because back when it was needed that was the best way to convey what exactly you were looking at. if you're going for something like va11 hall-a, draw even smaller until it starts feeling limiting, and work within. your resolution is too high

The images get all blurry because they're being compressed while also being a very small resolution. Tegaki isn't really made for small-scale stuff, even if you can zoom-in super close while drawing.

There's a way around this though. While drawing in Tegaki, take a screenshot. Then, crop the screenshot in a simple editor (MS Paint even) so the image just contains the art. You won't be able to go back and edit the original with this method, but at least what you post won't be blurred.

Also, that other anon is wrong, your spritework really isn't that bad. Improvement comes with practice.

Honestly wasn't expecting that, kudos. Very mathematical.

What did you prove? That by contrast to "actual" spritework, the beginner's attempt is "scum"? No, I disagree, it's not scum. I said that the spritework isn't "that bad" because it isn't that bad. Is it great? No, it's a beginner's first steps. Is it horrible? Absolutely not.

The artist probably picked those colors because they would be fine shading options in a higher resolution piece.

The biggest problem these have is the fact that you're shading them like you would a lowkey piece of art, and the colors aren't boding well together. If your pixel art doesn't look recognizable at 100% resolution, it needs improvement.
A good exercise when you're starting out with pixel art is to work at a low resolution ie. 64 x 64 with a limited palette (16 colors or less) so you can learn how to make good use of the small space. I learned and still practice by making fake pokemon sprites for gen 3 games because it goes by the 64 x 64 16 colors model.

If anyone here except for you defined Oekaki as "pixel art", then this thread wouldn't even exist. Of course, understanding something as basic as that isn't your strong suit, now is it?
>you're just confusing pixel art with sprites these have a specific resolutions
All pixel art has limited resolution, retard. You are supposed to be working pixel by pixel. Even the most elaborately detailed landscapes in this medium are usually no more than 350px wide. What you're doing is giving us clean linework of one single subject, you stupid fucking spic.

This is pixel art. This is somebody who actually knows what pixel art is and understands that it's done on a PIXEL level, and not done by abusing the MS Paint spray brush or making a flat-colored cat with the Line tool. Notice the resolution. Notice the attention to detail in small things like the lamp, the window blinds, the mug.
All of this is pixel art that has detail put into it.

It's a pixel art thread, you fucking retard. You post pixel art in this one specific thread. You have the rest of the board to post normal drawings.

So you're mad because I'm posting legitimate, unbiased examples of pixel art to demonstrate how pixel art works? You're not even making a point, you're just getting mad at insignificant shit like an autistic child.

You're churning out letters that look like placeholder sprites in an abandoned Gamemaker project. Again, I don't care about high-tier stuff, but you're not even putting effort into these things. You're just churning these out because you think that following some imaginary rules instead of actually making a point makes you superior. It's fucking sad.

In a less angry way I get why anon is mad. It's really annoying seeing people think that binary brush = pixel art no matter the resolution. Even when their art has jaggies, flat colors, or when the art is like 600+ px.
Pixel art is super beautiful when done right, but nowadays its thrown to the wayside as being low effort and ugly. I see anons on /v/ shit on games for being "undertale pixelshit" and get mad that they dont use "real graphics" but if you look at a game like Kirby Super Star or Digimon World Dawn/Dusk you can really see the love in all of the sprites. Just really don't like the "we've evolved past pixel art" sentiment and all the people who think it should be more "inclusive". It's a learning curve but its my favorite form of art. Will draw some later for the thread.

The wikipedia page for pixel art says that the images are edited on a pixel level. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_art
The reason resolution is brought up so often is because you'd have to be absolutely insane to make pixel art bigger than a few hundred px.
>you just think that sprites of nes or gb are pixel art
No? I just think pixel art should look like it was created on a pixel level and not use mspaint spray tool to shade.
>>
>>661637
It's not even about the resolution in your pieces here:
>>661554
>>661416
>>660820
These were not edited at a pixel level besides maybe the cat, but even then you can see areas where the lineart is jagged or incomplete.
That bird drawing you posted has all of the halmarks of good pixel art: Lineart is smooth and not jagged, clear love and care was put into the shading, etc. Also the resolution was increased by 300%, so the pic's true resolution is at about 350x420 which is normal for pizel art. I know this because I zoomed in at the pixel level and saw that all "pixels" were actually 12 of them in one color.

>But it's not pixel art. It wasn't edited at a pixel level. It was with a binary brush.<
It was not making by a brush, the eye is the only one that I use the spray tool, but is still just a flat color, the spray tool don't provide a automatic grandient or smooth, just a flat color, even programs specialized for making pixel art have one, is a simple tool, like the curve tool or line tool that I used for making the line art, like this one>>659414 or this one>>659773
both made in ms paint
>>
>>661649
You don't use the spray tool for pixel art. That's not how it works. It's not about flat colors. it's about every pixel being placed like you're playing minecraft.
It's not about the program. Idk why you keep bringing up programs. The examples you posted both have more detail than what you've made too.

>>661649
the whole point of pixel art, when working at pixel level, is that any placement of a single pixel can change the shape entirely. that's your point of reference. that's why you have to put time and care into it, because, if you don't, it looks like shit. using an aliased brush and drawing like you normally would doesn't make it pixel art just because you cel shaded. if you can't learn the difference no matter how many times it had to be repeated to you, then draw in a different thread, and stop dumping garbage in a thread where it doesn't belong.

i think the easiest way to tell whether something's oekaki or pixel art is whether there was intent and deliberation put behind individual pixels, otherwise it's just a low-res painting. it's about technique more so than the medium which is why you can have high-res pixel art and it'll still noticeably look different than oekaki done within the same constraints

yeah but for the finer details you're not going to freehand anything, that requires you to go on a pixel by pixel basis, even the tools you use follow this guideline because it's nothing but a shortcut to doing it manually. it's dumb watching you defend these ESLs who have the rest of the board to post their antitheses to the thread topic.

I was trying to explain it in a way he could understand with visual references, because he's ESL and sometimes it's hard to explain things to people when they don't speak the same language.

It's just that as a pixel artist it's annoying that so many people want to stretch the definition out to the point where it boils down to just using "mspaint" tools. Unless it's called out, the thread will just be low res oekaki paintings and pixel art will be few and far between.
Unfortunately people get weirdly defensive when you call this out, like unnaturally defensive.
