I believed you can't change it (same with most forums)
But a few forums can be by asking a Moderator

If its possible, I should have changed my user name also (Accidentaly used my real name T.T  :P )

Oh, well thanks :-/ lol I guess I'm going to have to make a new account... From now on I shall be known as Kurieta :)

Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to change your Stencyl account name? I don't really like my current one anymore :-\
I tried editing my profile, but it won't let me change that part... Is there something I'm missing or do I have to make a new account?

If you're wondering what my current one means, it's Japanese for 'wizard' lol.

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:
http://www.pixeljoint.com/

You can find some more links regarding pixel art here:
http://www.mazeon.com/links

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

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 :(

Okay, so I did a really simple tutorial on 'Scratching' and making a blob, so I made my first ever gif:

Good job. That is actually pretty good.

The only tip I can give you is to start with less pixels. Like maybe a 16 x 16 character sprite, and to work up from there. Why? Because:

1. It really makes you focus on how to get the most out of each pixel since you have pretty much no space to waste.
2. The simplicity makes it not too difficult to make.
Thanks! :D It was surprisingly easier than expected :)
And I'll do that, I normally don't like to start out small, but I never really get anywhere unless I do lol
I think I'm going to look up examples of 16x16 sprites, so I can also do what everyone else is saying and copy other people's artwork (for practice of course :P )

Thanks a ton for the feedback :)

The colors are a bit flat and the sprite lacks volume (it also looks flat like paper mario).

Yeahh I really need to work on my colors...  :-\ I noticed that right when I was done.. But thanks :)

Have patience and watch more tutorials and practice.
try to do easy tutorials first

Start with the basics so when you complete severals of them you'd be confident enough to move on.
also, starting with a specific art style will make things easier for you.
Just remember to have confidence and have patience in following tutorials.  ;D

Yeah, I kinda jumped into the deep end with this fakemon tutorial,  :-\ mainly because it's something I'm really interested in... So I guess I'll just start out easy like you said :)

A wise artist told me, start by copying art you like..


So I should start by copying pokemon that I like the look of? Or other fakemon? Lol or does it not matter?

Try these pixel tutorials out.

and character tutorials


http://www.drawinghowtodraw.com/

I definitely will!:D

Thanks for all the feedback guys, this is why I love the Stencyl community :D
Could somebody give me some criticism on my sprite? What you like, what you didn't like? Just so I can keep that in mind, and not develop a bad habit. :)

Hello, I'm pretty much a beginner in Stencyl, though I have been using it for a while. (never very seriously, unfortunately). I like coding, and spriting, but I'm not good at either T.T

I just spent quite a bit of time on this sprite, (Stayed up til two then woke up at 9 to finish, but I'm sure this is nothing new) and it. looks. horrible. I followed a fakemon tutorial, and did everything to the letter, and still my sprite looks like garbage. .-.

My questions: WHY?? Where did I go wrong? I think the outline (The hands, arms, feet and ears specifically) are my biggest mistake, but I couldn't get it right no matter how much I fiddled with it. Any tips? Something I'm missing? Why can't I be beautiful too?

Hey :D
I'm fifteen myself, and looking for someone to collaborate with. I have a small background in game development, and would love to work with a group. I have some experience in programming, design (2D and 3D) and I'm very familiar with Stencyl. I've tried a few times to make games, but I always had too much on my plate, and never really got anywhere... but it did teach me a lot. :)

I understand what you're saying, and I honestly don't have much to show right now.
I don't really have anything to offer to anyone, and I didn't think this through very well. I can't really take down the thread, but I think I'm just going to work by myself until I have something to give.

I appreciate the input.
