MoonQuest Art!

Yeh that’s much better. I notice you are getting much more comfortable with your lines, that’s great


#83


I call it the “House-leg hammer”


#84

Awesome, and here’s a tough challenge: make it a sprite for the game. I guess it would be about sixteen pixels long…


#85

Ok I will give it a try.


the first is the original size. I think the hardest part was trying to keep the foot shape.
Well @ben what do you think?


#86

It’s a good start! Main crits: shapes not defined enough, handle too thick. Here’s some other hammer-like weapons, please revise. ( I love getting free work… :wink: )


#87

Based on the other samples you provided (thanks), I was constricting myself too much. It seems I had more pixels to work with than I thought.


#88

I hope this shows up good, I’m trying out new program on my phone…
It came out a little fuzzy but it is 3 pixels taller than my first and has a thinner handle with a better shape


#89

Yeah, better! Just got to remove the aliasing. I had a few attempts with diff shapes.


#90

From left to right, numbers 5 & 6!
I’m trying to keep the detail in the toes, I can remove the aliasing from the handle

Honestly it hurt to remove the detail :sweat:… I Keep finding 1 or 2 pixels that don’t look right, I’ve revised this 4 or 5 times now lol. Still trying to keep those toes.


#91

Yeah it’s the difficulty with this res. Detail is hard to do when you have lots of different coloured pixels all in a small space, especially lots of isolated single pixels. The aliasing happens in the toes when you have parallel diagonal lines, etc. Tbh it’s not a huge issue, but a good opportunity to get better at the styel


#92

Alternately I could opt for a boot instead of a foot.
I’m having fun trying to do your style


Hmmm this is actually funnier to me, what do you think?
You know what, I think I’m happier with the boot… plus it reads better.


#93

haha yeah that’s a good one, i’ll put it on the list, the sprite is pretty decent

still need a ‘house leg’ maybe we have one of big mechanical ones for that


#94

Any of the first 3, they all would make a great mechanical leg. Well I didnt intend for the boot to be its own thing, but now that it is we should name it.

Dos boot
Waffle stopper
Kick stick
Punter
Drop kicker


#95

Kick Stick gets my vote
Although “Dos Boot” makes me chuckle, not sure if you intended to turn it into a pun or if you just typo’d “Das Boot”, but I like the implication of breaking the 4th wall interpreting “booting from MS DOS” as an attack.


#96

Any other sprites you need help with? You guys have my creative side piqued, I’ve never tried pixel art but it looks like a fun challenge. What programs are you using for it?


#97

Try Piskel: http://www.piskelapp.com/
Its a quick and free way to make pixel art and you can import and export sprites and everything. :crazy:


#98

Also, while I wasn’t paying attention I drew this creepy version of Moonman:


#99

Totally intentional. :laughing:


#100

I use Aseprite and Gimp for Moonman. Let’s spin this out into a new pixel art thread and we can do some low res pixel art. Start with simple shapes like hearts, faces, etc, all about 8x8.
