this looked so bad in color

bunwithabow  asked:

What is your process when it comes to making pixel art? How do you choose colors for certain pieces? Have you ever experienced a really bad art block and how did you get through it? I love your pixels so much and they inspire me with my art and projects for games for school! Thanks for all that you do. 🤓

Hey- Thanks so much, and thanks for the questions! Let me answer in parts!

First, The process by which I usually pixel is:

1. Think of a concept, and write out/sketch possible objects related to that concept

2. Start pixelling from the object I feel most excited about

3. Look through my collection of existing pixel art to see if there are some shapes I could recycle, and find a few objects/photos to reference if I think I need help (for example, when I drew my banana, I went out and bought a banana.

4. Draw the line art version. I don’t usually freehand, but I do sometimes use curve line or shape tools, and then zoom in close and work on it one pixel at a time.

5. Fill in the object with the basic blocks of color

6. Play with resizing the object, getting the silhouette just right, making multiple versions and comparing before deciding.

7. Recolor the inside lines, add lighting, shadows, dithering, details..

8. I often make multiple versions again at this point and compare before choosing which colors to make the final version.

9. If at some point I feel the proportions, perspective, or lighting feels wrong, or something feels off in general, I look at my reference objects/images for help.

That’s my basic process!

“I don’t know,” Annersby mused, “I feel like with all the plastic surgery to hide your identity that coloring your hair blue is just like adding a neon sign to everyone.”

“Or don’t you think that if I was the bad guy I’d be looking for the most normal person. Who would want to attract attention with some bright neon hair after going into hiding? I’ll be right in front of their nose and they’ll have no idea,” you explained.

Annersby sighed, “Well the deed is done anyway.”

😳 - Age you get mistaken for?, ✏️ - Want any tattoos?, ✂️ - Got any Piercings?, ✌ - Want any piercings?, 🔥 - Something spicy you like?, 😷 - Something you hate eating?

😳 - Age you get mistaken for? 

Uhhh like last week ppl still thought I was like 17, so now it’d probably be similar? Or 18? xD I say I look like a 15 year old but it’s probably not that bad.

✏️ - Want any tattoos? 

Technically yes, but I don’t think I’ll have the courage xD if anything, it’d be either a quote or a super tiny minimalistic thing, or something really nice and colorful.

✂️ - Got any Piercings? 


- Want any piercings? 

I’m actually quite content without! I don’t really wear jewelry anyway so I don’t even need earrings…

🔥 - Something spicy you like? 

Hmmm I like wok noodles with hot curry sauce!

😷 - Something you hate eating?

There are a few things I can’t stand but I usually don’t have to eat them (like spinach or mushrooms) but what I do have to eat sometimes is eggplant and I simply CANNOT with its texture!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
