Okay I feel byond needs more Pixel Artist out there since there are only a few good ones out there. In this first part of the tutorial I'm going to show you all how to make a Base Character because every game should have it's own unique one.
(I'm going to make a 32x32 One)
First off I like to make my dimensions 32x32( By the way i don't like to use any fancy pixel system so i just use paint but you can use GIMP and all that other stuff if you want.)
Then to start off with the head I make a circle.
add a little curve or oval thing to the bottom.
Okay i don't know about all this human anatomy thingy so the bases may look uneven or whatever. I usually make the shoulders equal to its head.
Bring It down on the side of the arm.
Give him some hands you can make them big, small or what ever its up to you.
now draw a line down from the hand
then make feet
and now draw a line up
and you got some legs.
And there you go you got the first part done. now to do the back i usually just erase the line on the bottom of the head because i'm lazy :P.
but change the feet to face up now.
Now we add a East And West.
and here is what i like to do. i usually make the dimensions bigger for more room
Copy the two Directions and paste them next to each other.
Now take the head and erase a part of it
now give it shape
give it the body shape. pull the body forward and make him look kinda fat lol.
give him legs just like before and there you go you got 4 directions if you just flip it now to color.
Well this seems like a hard part for me since i can't pick skin tones but what ever i'll still try.
Use a color pallete or however you spell that its on the left corner.
Outline it with the darkest color you got in your pallete and throw away the black.(this is optional )
and now color in teh base with one of your lighter color.
Darken the color on the parts like under the neck and stuff.
There you go and now the eyes..(this can change if you are making a chibe like base or somthing)
I usually make them 2x2 eyes..
By the way i kinda changed the head a bit for the hair. And there you go its done.
Ps: I'm not the best pixel artist out there im just putting this out so people can actually learn to pixel art because most people are Really Really Lazy when learning this.
PSS: I'll teach you things like how to make it walk and stuff in teh next tutorial
PSSS: did i post this in the right place ??
