FAQs?

Do you do trades? Not anymore really!

CAN YOU DRAW ME SOMETHING??  No sorry! Time is money

commissions? check my journals  or the link on my profile.

How long have I been pixeling?
-Since late 2011.

How do you achive such soft looking shading on your pixels? Do you stick only to the pencil/fill tools, or do you utilize brushes?
Or do you just use enough colors to make it blend nicely?
-OPACITY there I spilled the beans countless times now.. opacity with the pencil tool. It just helps me finish pixels faster and keeps me in touch with my painterly-side lol.


I DONT USE THE DAMN BRUSH TOOL. JUST LEARN TO USE THE PENCIL TOOL'S OPACITY SETTINGS. ITS AMAZING...
smooths everything out. but leaves it pixelated. If you use the brush tool. im pretty sure its gonna look blurry

What program do you use?
-photoshop cs3, I suggest you learn photoshop cuz I love it/plus its free lol

What inspires you to make pixel art/ how did you get into pixel art?
-I had no idea what pixel art really was at first lol, I made short animations on youtube with MS PAINT, and learned how to use the PENCIL TOOL <---important for pixeling lol which I had no idea would ultimately lead to pixel art here on DA, and then I started to get a little better at drawing overall throughout the years etc etc lol. here I is!

I'm always confused, and I want to make my animations better, do you have some tips in animating??? like

I animate very similar to how this girl animates
Mirror12

however we have different drawing styles.

also different animations require different steps .

many complex movements require frame by frame drawings to look smooth.

none of my animations have less than 3 frames.

even blinking requires 3 frames . and thats AT LEAST 3 frames or more.

ANIMATING PIXELS IS THE SAME AS ANIMATING LIKE FOR CARTOONS

its frame by frame. working on making it transition smoothly so it looks nice.

i have a few questions about how you color!!

I've zoomed in on your pixels before and noticed that you use an INSANE amount of colors!

1) How do you know what colors to use? aside from basic color theory, that is.
2) Do you place each pixel individually? i'm beyond impressed if you do wowow
3) do you use layer filtering by any chance? (like setting the later to luminosity or lowering the opacity some)

sorry for all the questions! I just really really love your pixels (and am super curious lol) I'm not trying to copy your style or anything, so don't worry! Thanks for your time <33 o7o

copy and pasting something I answered previously because it has to do with most of your questions

How do you achive such soft looking shading on your pixels? Do you stick only to the pencil/fill tools, or do you utilize brushes?
Or do you just use enough colors to make it blend nicely?

-OPACITY there I spilled the beans countless times now.. opacity with the pencil tool. It just helps me finish pixels faster and keeps me in touch with my painterly-side lol.
 
I dont use filtering   sometimes if i messed up a color  ill change the color with adjustments.

use a little bit of brightening tool-dodge to bring out a shiny spot in a pixel.

thats about it.
lol

ok I want to ask something  and I don't know if someone asked you this before but actually I want to know how to export my work to a good quality gif , I know how to save my work in Photoshop of curse but I can't save it with out any dithering when I save it with dithering option it looks really ugly and messy but your work quality is very good although it's only 400x300 or less while mine 1000x1000 !!!! please tell me how to save gif files while maintaining the original quality >.<

My pixels are 150x150 Pixel document
or for icons 50x50 pixel size document

what size do you make yours?
1000x1000x pixels???
Reply
:iconmarlidona:
Marlidona Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes 1000 x 1000 is that the reason why when I save it the quality drops down so easily.  Do you mean If I worked on small document it won't loose any quality when I save it because its already small? 
Reply
:icongetanimated:
Getanimated Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2014  Student Filmographer
well pixel art in general is never usually made in anything bigger than 150x150 lol

most people who do anything bigger find it hard to color

1000x1000 is extremely huge hhaha

im not a big computer person so im not familiar with  quality

Uh.. I heard saving large images as jpegs or pngs is the best
so just save any LARGE PIXELS as a png with a transparent background

itll keep it the exact way it looks , but if its animated gifs 1000x1000 im not sure wat to say about that haha

Amazing how even after the compression to gif, you still have so much details.
When I play with opacity and switch from a png with like 1000 colors to gif with 256, I lose so much details...well, you can't really notice the loss without the original, but there is! MEH!

 Well, It won't be a problem since I'll work with 16 colors or at least limited palettes for a while... :dummy:
