I haven't been dead -- only knocking death's door! :P
As of late I haven't had a whole lot of inspiration/motivation to work on my bigger projects... so I've been working on these little pictures for members of Equiverse
A pixel "tag" is just a tiny pixel "portrait" that members use to decorate their profiles, use as icons, or even as a mean of creating an image link to a character reference. It's something that, until now, I haven't tried and after learning some shading techniques, I've decided to give it a try.
Below is my first tag, one of my fantasy horses (for my comic), Skylar
. I also played with the font... you can see that that turned out, er, "well." This one took me about 3 hours.
This one was for an Equiverse member of her virtual horse, City Hunter.
It took me about 2 hours.
This one I finished today. I started sketching it late last night while on a Skype call with a friend (who was supposed to be keeping me awake to finish it, but was doing a poor job, haha). It took around 4 hours.
It's Bamber! :) Reference was my own photo of him.
My next goal is to work even smaller
, on a canvas of around 50x50 pixels or so (making digital icons). I may eventually sell these (but for no more than $5/ea -- $2 for the icons). What do you guys think??
