    New to pixel art !

    I've never done pixel art before, but one of the threads here inspired me to try it. Here is my result :

    Opinions ? Critiques ? Help ? I would like to continue this because I found it very fun .

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's fun!

    What program are you using? I use Adobe Photoshop. If we "share" a program, I can hint you in on my process. (:

    I REALLY like how you did the mane! Making it look like "hair" is actually more difficult than some people may think.

    Thanks ! I used Adobe Photoshop also. I used to do manipulations, so I am really good at doing realistic hair . Making it look 'cartooney' (Is that a words ? Lol ) was difficult . I am working on my second one right now (: What I'm having trouble on right now is basic shading .. I'm not very good at it .

    Very charming work! You can see mine, that Creampuff did for me, at the bottom of my signature on this page. I am over the moon tickled with it!

    I've never had any real eye for manipulating photos, haha. Most I do is make basic edits to bring out the color and such.

    There are oodles of tutorials on deviantART for tags and shading them. I always zoom in as much as possible (1600%) for my line art (which I use the pencil tool for). Then I zoom out to about 600% for my shading (after I have the base colored). I always shade grayscale... as you can see below.

    From there you basically re-color the base (the medium gray), and tinker with the shading and highlight layers' opacity and layer setting (multiply, overlay, etc.) to make it look more natural. I put one of the color-overs next to the grayscale so you can see. :)

    Most of the "tags" are kept at 150x150 pixels in size. Others go up to 600x600 pixels.

    How are you doing your line art? It looks really bunched up. Below are a couple of pixel tutorials that helped me.

    I have to admit that I'm not as crazy about the new two as I was the first one. But, then again, there's always time to practice! Let me know how the tutorials go for you. :)
