Barret looks really good for an 8 bit sprite, Good to see you experimenting with dither shading on that brick wall, THe window (i suppose it is a window right?) looks a bit on the flast side, maybe you could apply dithering on the white stipe there.
Overall they start lookingpretty neat so far!

try to guess who it is.Click to view attachment
I kinda sped through the window. Anyway, how 'bout a challenge for me?
Dec 18 2012, 10:19 AM
Alright then! Sprite me a tree, Don't make it too small, make it at least 110 pixels high and 60 pixels wide.
Dec 18 2012, 10:38 AM
It may not be good, but I'll try.
(P.S. try to stick to known characters. I'm better at that.)

All your sprites are super cute! >u< like really adorable.
Also, just imo, but shouldn't "challenges" be all about new things? Ya know, getting out of your comfort zone to improve and all that?

When I said that, I was expecting character requests.

If you want to improve as an artist, you gotta try somethign different from time to time. overspecializing on one thing tends to stunt one's growth. Even if you think the result will be bad, still give it a go, we'll see what you did wrong and what you did right afeter you're finished.
After all, your arent turning down my challenge aren't you?
Dec 19 2012, 10:05 AM
No, I'm not. I just need practice on character sprites, then I will move on.
Btw, I just finished the tree. I told you it would be bad.Click to view attachment

The outlines are nice and crisp, and while still looking "flat" for the few shading you have done on it you did a good job at giving it certain volume already. Sure, it isn realistic tree, but it gives the idea acrossof what it is and that is agood thing to start with.
Try applying the dithering techincque in thethershold bewteen the highlight and the shadow of the tree as well as using amiddle tone and use it to antialias the shade and give it texture, You can also try outlining the tree in a really dark shade of it's colors rather than black, usually looks better that way.
For a cartoony tree the shape is fine, but if you'd like to attempt a more realistic looking tree (and i definitvley reccomend you do) Do some obevservation studies on photos of trees, for art of any kind, observation is gonn ahelp you like you wouldnt believe.
Ok so, you want to practice a character? ALright, do any character youd like, only bigger now, 20 wide and 40 high is good.

Thanks. I guess I;ll try to do ......Aerith Gainsborough!

Could you possibly not add them as attachments, instead use an image hosting site to host your images and then post them using the IMG tags. I don't normally d/l images instead I prefer to view them online

I finished a test of the sprite.
i will be using image shack when possible due to restrictions at school.

excellent choice and excellent execution! Your style is great, I'm a sucker for oldschool sprites. Do you do just characters, or environments too? If you can do environments you can make a wicked game.
CAN YOU DO CAIT SITH? CAN YOU CAN YOU CAN YOU?!
Dec 20 2012, 02:18 PM
I guess I'll try. to answer your question, look at the top. those are about the best I can do with tiles.
here is Cait Sith!http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/9004/caitsith.jpg

How is your computer even functioning well enough to not tear your hair out?
On topic, the caitsith and aeris aren't bad. It seems you're losing some graphical quality somewhere in the process though. Are you saving as a .jpg or .jpeg? If so, it's not a good format for sprites, I would use .png as it's not lossy and much clearer then the former.

I really don't pay attention to the file types. Sorry.
btw, I finished the sprite. Here it is.Click to view attachment
