pattern dither

HERE’S THE PILE OF PIXEL-Y GIFTS I DID IN MY ART STREAM TODAY.


I’m having so much heckin fun with this style my goodness. I figured out what sorts of custom dithering patterns I made for this technique were my faves, and the challenge of a limited color palette for the sake of keeping layers concise was really fun to work within. :,0


The mAIN point of this stream was to whip up some gifts of characters I’ve wanted to draw for an age but kept putting off til now :,> So here’s everybody I drew up some stuff for~

@diabebus‘s Buck

@5targuitar‘s Z

@arrt-jim-lad‘s Rolling Flash

@artisticdoodler‘s Vito & Barrett

and @cecameron‘s Tacker

I hope you all like these! ;v; Love all you folk’s work immensely, and I can’t wait to see what you all do next.

Also if you’d like transparent versions of em at all feel free to msg me! :>

ok i think this is useful information about making gifs: -  ABOUT DITHER

it’s this one in the setting when you are about to save the gif (photoshop CS6), in case you don’t know:

WITH DITHER (PATTERN)

DIFFUSION

and NO DITHER

See the difference?

i always use the PATTERN one because it is almost always the cleanest one (less grains). when i was starting, i have asked people how to get those dotted pattern effect and nobody answered me and i just figured it out on my own.
