You are not alone my friend, I don't even know how to use the proper colors I need online help for that like Adobe colors... I would take a entire day to that and I doubt it would be the same haha... Sad...

Don’t feel down! I’ve been doing pixel art for a few years now, and I’ve put a lot of time studying into my work. Right now I’m working on speed specifically that’s why it’s so fast usually takes me a lot longer but I sacrifieced quality for time. Colors are very difficult for me still but it gets easier. Usually the only thing I do that really helps with color is remembering to color shift. Cool for shadows and warm for highlights. Adding those will really help your artwork pop.

Thank you! Textured have been very hard for me to grasp, a lot of it is realizing that it’s all the persons interpretation it might look exactly like leaves or grass or clouds upclose but if you put enough of those small details it pulls everything together. For me I don’t like ridiculously noisy texture so I go for more rounded shapes.

I know that comparison is cliché and overused AF but that literally looks like 2D Dark Souls.

It's DS fan art, so that makes sense.

What program do you use?

I'm a sucker for sunsets but don't usually use such saturated colors, so I wanted to do that lol. I like the results pretty okay! Original piece took 3.5 hrs, took about an hr to edit the colors, add different clouds and add some texturing to the background mtns.

Beautiful colors! 💕

Gorgeous 😇

Good composition. You've got a low colour style and works well. Is the sky dithering auto generated? When the rest of the image is very flowing and or chaotic it follows the sky dithering should also have that quality.

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

Nah not autogenerated! I do it w some line brushes to save time tho! Hard to find a quick organic dithering pattern tbh! still working on it!

With pixel art I find that rushing anything is a bad idea. Take your time and complete your masterpiece in 4 hours instead of 2.5.

My Mt. Ranier took me 80ish hours.

Really great, realistic clouds are quite difficult to convey well in pixel art and these look superb.
