I know I've been quiet for a LONG time. It's because I've been "studying", going through all kinds of Pixel Sites seeing the way people use a 'Light Source', and the way they shade. Trying to improve as a Pixel Artist.
-In my current WIP, it includes a few icons for a game called "Dragonball Adventure by Son Danny". Used a Light Source. This is more or so the "style", i feel most comfortable in as a Pixel Artist.
-Another Dragonball Z Project called "Dragonball Z Beyond by Cyberlord34". Used a Light Source. To me it felt like something new, even though I used the same type of Light Source from my work on DBA.
Also if your wondering why the Budokai thing has 2 different shades it's because I wanted to know which side looked better, the right or the left.
-Also, I was attempting to create a bunch of icons for One Piece((Only managed to get the Base and Luffy)), and I approached it with a much simpler type of shade. IMO.
The Budokai more or so how it would look like.
