This is what I’ve been working on lately, some 32×32 weapon sprites :-)

Trying out doing the same sword in different definitions.
First one is 16×16, second 32×32 and the third 64×64.

Well it’s my art portfolio actually. But besides that, I am having it Alice in Wonderland themed! So what I have planned is to have each level be a scene or part from the story and the top floor will have the final battle between the Queen of Hearts and Alice the Bunneh. It’s pretty much going to be covered in bunnehs and small little things here and there that I add. I’m currently working on the tea party scene but I’m not going to draw anyone at the actual tea party, they’re all going to be walking towards the next floor!

My long term plan for this is that once I get the entire portfolio done I’m going to actually redraw it as a webtoon of sorts on the computer and have it be all cute and nice. I am thinking of turning it into a game possibly.

Ah okay, sounds interesting! I will be looking forward to the finished version because I really enjoy the “Wonderland” theme! Also depending on the execution, I feel like a game based on this would be pretty fun. I realize that this would likely be quite a ways away (if you even decide to do it), but do you have any ideas about how exactly you would envision the game being, because that is something I would be interested in!

Actually the shape of her face was bugging me too. I was going to work on that when I lost my tablet charger. Another thing with the face is that the shading was on another layer and I can’t remember what happened to it exactly. If I can find it I’ll just layer it under the current facial makeup layer so it’ll be nicer. Here’s my drawing process that I usually do:

1) Sketch
2) Colour blocking
3) Highlights/contouring
4) Makeup
5) Merge layers
6) Begin polishing
7) Skin
8) Details
9) …..

If it helps I follow Imagine FX Magazine for digital art so I try to aim for my end pieces looking similar to the ones that they publish. I adore that magazine due to many of their excellent tutorials and their tips. I highly recommend looking at it. Some of their editions I especially treasure for their articles on skin, etc.

I hadn’t heard of Imagine FX before, but I checked out some of the tutorials on their website and they look like they should be pretty helpful, so thanks for that! Hopefully you will find the charger, it would be nice to see more drawings in that style.

I would most definitely recommend the Wacom lines. I’ve found over and over that Wacom just provides the best tablets and they’re the most versatile for their cost. They have low range products to professional products so you can tailor the products to your budget.

Thanks for all the advice! I think I will probably end up getting the Intuos Pro. Although when I have the money (depending on how my experience with drawing tablets goes) I think I would like to get a desktop drawing monitor like the 24 inch Cintiq, but of course $2500 is a bit out of my price range currently. I do not know if I would even need it, but you deny how great it would be to have anyways!

Editing some of my old weapon 32×32 sprites… :)

Here’s the axe I’m working on atm:

It looks good! However I am trying to figure out what exactly it is, but I think something about the old version looks better. It may be that in the new version, the decoration on the blade stands outs more and does not fit in with the blade itself. The blade looks like it is just slapped on the side of a metal rod, but in the old version, they fit together and it looks overall more harmonious.

Tomorrow I will get to work on my game again after a week of chemistry tests, speeches, and astronomy; so I should have more things to share, such as new npc sprites and secret areas.

Thank you for the feedback. :)
Does this look better?

That’s wonderful to hear! I definitely look forward to seeing your game on Kongregate (or somewhere else) someday. Please keep us updated if you can once you begin!

In other news, I like the edits on your sprites. The darker outlines definitely give them more character and edge. I love the first sword/prongs/not sure what they are/dual blades, the blue blade you have, the sword with the purple hilt, and of course the ostrich.

Are your sprites inspired by any games/artists in particular? Or are they of your own creation completely? I’m just a bit curious that’s all!

Thanks for the kind words man!

When I first started spriting my major inspiration was the game Tibia, a 2d mmorpg.

Here are some sprites I made recently in that fashion:

The sprites previously posted in this thread are inspired a lot by Terraria style graphics, as in not very complex when it comes to shading, so it’s a lot easier to animate them.

When it comes to artists there have been a lot of people who have helped me through the years, as in giving me feedback and criticism. :)
But I don’t think there’s a specific artist that has been a huge inspiration for me. I’ve definitely admired a lot of 2D artists and have probably taken up a thing or two from watching other peoples sprites. :)

And yes they are my reskins for the terraria iron tools, and the demon eye monster. :)

Oh gosh, your sprites are so cute! I especially love your ostrich and the small creature to the right of it. Are you working on this with a specific theme in mind? This is great! I hope someday that you’ll have time to make a game since I absolutely love your work. Thanks for sharing with us!

Thanks. I’m not really working on a game, but I might be in the future when I got more free time. Good to have these sprites handy then.

I totally suck at drawing faces closeup, so i need some1 to draw the character portrait(96×96).
The portrait will be in the big square to left.

(Yes, there is a gun with microwave oven on it, in the image =DDD)

I would also prefer 2-3 another versions of the same portrait with his face scratched/damaged.

I would be very grateful if some1 could do this, and
i would add ur name and desired profile/homepage link in the game.

Edit: Oh the character is kinda like cowboy, and he needs to be drawn without the hat.

Should I continue? :PP

Well here’s a link to a video of it if you wanna know what it is!

It’s pretty much a 2d version of Minecraft but with more rpg elements.

Hello, hello, when I post here I normally do it in the prophets of pixels thread, this however doesn’t quite fit in there so I thought I might aswell make a thread for it.

It’s a terrarian character wearing mining shirt and mining pants.

I’d be shocked if there’s anyone on this forum who hasn’t heard of Terraria so I will refrain from explaining what it is.
