Practiced my shading, copied the actual sprite, but did my own color pallet. Another .gif, I'm loving these :) lol

Before you say something about me not making the colors blend, (Which they don't at all lol) this took me 15 minutes, and my goal was to make it pop :P

That's supposed to be a strawberry on top, but it's so small you can't see it :(

Your cupcake is really nice and funny! :)
Guess it's quite a good idea to start with tiny and simple pixel art.

Still one of my favorite pixel art tutorials is GAS 13's pixel art tutorial:
http://gas13.ru/v3/tutorials/

If you need inspiration, have a look at Pixeljoint:

You can find some more links regarding pixel art here:

Keep on pixel pushing! :)

Thanks man, I made it for my girlfriend :) I actually copied it from the internet (Like vikingpotato and other people suggested) but added my own shading and colors
Thanks for the tutorials! I'll be sure to check those out  :D
Best of luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor  :P

Hey guys, I decided to change my name, because I didn't like the old one, and I didn't want to be regretting it for the rest of my life o.o
So I changed it while my account was still young :P

Anyways, this sprite became a project. 40 frames, and it took FOREVER lol. So, basically, this was my project for today: (It could have been better, I know  :-\)

Very nice. The only thing I noticed is that when the ship flies in, it swoops in then drops suddenly when it begins abducting. Otherwise though, it looks pretty good!

Poor cow.  :'(
For as small as the cow is, I think it looks fine.

Yeah :/ I wanted to make the ship to swoop down, then go down a little and THEN abduct the cow, but I forgot to make the frame a little longer, and add another frame to make it smoother

Oh no, don't worry. The cow is just getting a ride from the aliens, and the aliens are dropping him off, but that's out of frame. They're actually really good friends :)

Oops. I thought Vigilence meant the cow looked poorly done. My bad. :P

Helloooo! :D I saw a pixel art contest and decided to take a stab at it, despite my inexperience and being a novice. I did this yesterday, and it only took me an hour  :o I'm going to make all the pixels further from the candle more saturated, and the shading on the wall needs some serious work, and I think I'm going to add a picture above the bed.

Besides that, could I get some constructive criticism? Anything to make this better! Too much brown? Does the flooring need work? Different colored blanket? Lose the pattern? Work on the window? I think the blanket needs a bit of work, to make it looked folded back.

What do you think? Thanks in advance for the help :)
