Complete ass shit, by this logic every oldschool video game isn't pixel art because if you saw all of the stage assets in full on screen it wouldn't be pixel art because now the pixels are "too small"

Note: If there's no anti aliasing, it's pixel art. It can't be any clearer, alias means pixelated.
Not washed out enough.
false opinion, pixel art commonly uses anti aliasing, but as hand placed pixels, not with an automatic algorithm.
I always thought you'd have to use a darker color of the same hue to antialias, but you proven me wrong in my assumption, great job.

What is you most favorite work of pixel art?

I enjoy them as well. Sometimes, his understanding of anatomy shows through the scribbles. I like the ones that blink after a while, though I wish he would try more movement than just blinking, it would be such a trip to see what he does.
How do I actually draw? In other tutorials there are usually activities you go through; I'm reading the Pixel Logic book and it's just telling me about outlines, and AA, but not what to do
I'm an indie dev with only 5k followers - so take my advice with a grain of salt

Go to spriters resource
Find some game sprites you like
Try to recreate them
Make a sprite in that style
Rinse and repeat

It helps if you are a gamedev or something - as making sprites for no purpose is sorta useless - making sprites for a game pushes you to draw things you wouldn't normally - like trees and buildings, or run cycles

The advent of digital "art" and software-based projects has given the chance of every mediocre artist out there to output "masterpieces" thanks to countless hours beautifying the canvas with the aid of software tools and attractive colors
A true artist is a fucking beast at linework and can sell work based on linework alone, THAT takes true skill and even more if it's done traditionally. You don't need anything more than a white canvas and black ink to output incredible stuff, but you decide to stay in your safe lane over-painting turds and encourage the community to follow suit as well

why are you mad
different poster but
>you simply lack taste
I used to watch a lot of anime when I was in hs and looking back it’s all the same garbage. So many derivatives of derivatives, I wonder how I didn’t stop watching sooner. Most anime became easy to guess the whole plot of a season w/in 5 minutes, and every “art style” barely looked different than the last, not to mention every character designed followed a trope down to a t, it was hard to not know each character’s personality just by looking at them for a frame. Not saying modern western art is any better, but trying to convince others one pile of trash is better than another just b/c “at least it’s not from this side of the world” is just plain retarded and doesn’t count as a real argument.
honestly I’m so tired of this “east vs west” debate b/c it just boils down to “The EU and USA vs Japan” and really fails to capture anything outside of that, and every single japtard on here can’t comprehend even the simplest of concepts such as how the japanese don’t have some magic gene or trick to learn how to draw manga and all that they’re actually doing is drawing 8+ hours a day because the japanese believes in doing anything as close to perfection as possible.
This but "No U" unironically.
You literally just called it "line art", it's you're admitting it's an artform in itself and does not need anything else to be "fished". Line art is inherently art, even by your own words
>The advent of digital "art" and software-based projects has given the chance of every mediocre artist out there to output "masterpieces" thanks to countless hours beautifying the canvas with the aid of software tools and attractive colors
does using a ruler make your art any less valid? You still have to understand art to produce it, and using attractive colors is how, get this, you attract an audience. I don't think the game Hades would've blown up so much if it didn't have the vibrant color scheme that it uses.
Part of being an artist is knowing your audience. I like linework art, but most of the art I look at is on instagram and it's really hard to really post something like your picrel when Instagram downgrades the quality a lot, something that affects linework way more than rendered art.
also who cares, part of doing art is for your own or the entertainment of others. Sure linework is definitely a lot harder than rendered art, but that doesn't make it enjoyable to most audiences.

Go to deviantart.com see artists claim they own the concept of a "closed species" and get pissed when you tell no without trademark.

They're high level gacha avatars.
How old is this post? This sounds exactly like an NFT.

People actually pay for this shit? Fuck it, gonna start drawing chibis.
Pretty sure you can't trademark a character concept, which is what they're trying to do. You can protect a name, you can protect a character design, but you can't protect a concept. I can write a series of books about a kid who goes to a wizard boarding school and fights a noseless snake man, but I can't call the kid Harry Potter or the school Hogwarts.
Now people would call this out and call it a ripoff, but it's not illegal.
These kids can't protect a "species", they are just trying to rip off other kids who don't know better. And these "species" are almost always derivative in the first place. And usually there is no trademark or copyright files. Like this terms of use makes mention of it. Because you can't copyright or trademark a "closed species" which means they have no leagal protection or right and you can just tell th to fuck off.
The problem is the communities who do this all believe this is a legit thing and will attack you if you do this. So it's like a mob justice type of thing.

>There's only 1 type of autism
Many people join the military to though up so getting yelled at is expected but you also know that as long as you follow the orders you won't get punished or otherwise and the fact that you don't need to make decisions takes a huge weight of your mind, you don't need to worry about your role in society, what you'll do tomorrow or even how to dress, it's all decided for you, just follow the orders. Also being forced to do physical training is only torture the first 10 minutes, once your body starts releasing the sports chems the axiety goes away.

Of course not all autists will be a fit for the military life like >>6074747 but there's also many normies who never adapt to the military lifestyle and regret joining.

Ive seen this same thread posted so many times over the last couple of years and not a single one of you has brought this up. Fucking retards, the lot of you.
But you see, if we can present him as some kind of inhuman demon, then we don't have to face the evil inherent in all humanity. Hitler wasn't like us, we could never do such terrible things. After all, our penises are normal.
If you see a person's genitals, and they aren't warped by the evils he's committed like some porn parody of the Picture of Dorian Gray, then you know he's an all right guy deep down.

As the title says, I have followed many artists across different platforms over 5+ years that are so invested in their OCs. I'm specifically talking about artists that research a bunch of stuff, give their OCs characterizations, and make a character sheet. Despite all of this rarely have I come across a project of theirs, even an unfinished one, where they actually use these OCs to make a story whether it be in the form of a comic or video game or even a cover for a self-published novel.

Basically is there any artist out there that invested a great deal of time into crafting an OC (Not part of a fandom) that actually uses it for more than drawing random illustrations? Closest I've seen is people making illustrations for their DnD characters. Webtoon is filled with mostly romance stuff and the artists I have in mind were definitely not planning a YA type of world.

Picrel is probably the best example I can think of, I've seen this dude's art constantly for years and I'm surprised he doesn't have a webcomic or something. He even has animated shots for his character.

>They're wiki browsers that don't understand that context makes ideas interesting. We've seen people shoot energy out their hands 100000 times already but who the character is and what they do can make it engaging.
This. Lore dumps without narrative or characterization are just fucking boring. You're basically making a history textbook for a person who doesn't even exist; hell, less than that, because historical figures have interesting arcs and are well-characterized.
I only make ocs to play as in dungeons and dragons
It is
How is it shitty? The only bad thing is that he invested in style before gameplay and story.
I have a few OCs that I write and publish stories for but life’s been keeping me busy with other things so I haven’t had as much time to write and draw as I would like.

How the fuck do I achieve this skill level?

It's okay when first starting, but really should find someone else once you figure out the construction phase. He teach you how to draw something in 3 or 4 angles, but you won't know what it looks like in other angels. He leaves the shapely construction lines in and doesn't teach you anything about form, or how the body looks without those shapes. Also his females are great, but his males are horrid.
He's a good lad, even if tutorials are limited to beginner stuff
someone post that clip where he accidentally shows his blacked.com ref
he don't trace, but he was using blacked porn as inspo, that in it's self is funny
The tutorials where he draws with a mechanical pencil are actually helpful. Say what you want about coombait art, he understands form and how to convey it in lines.
