Pixel a Capcom background by Kiwi-RGB Pixel a Capcom background by Kiwi-RGB
This is a companion piece to SPEED SPRITING WITH PHOTOSHOP, so check out that one for a better look at some of the main tricks mentioned here.

The goal with all these tutorials, as always, is to get more people able to make better-looking pixel art, faster.

If you decide to try it out, be sure to start off easy with a Gameboy palette. See if you can follow along to that galaxy example.

And for those wondering, final image is here

Pixel a Capcom background by *Kiwi-RGB Ive never seen so much useful information in one tutorial. It shows one of the many methods one can use to create a detailed image in pixel. I was initially going to give the DD to the image this is all based from, but this can be so much more appreciated by our community as a whole. ( Featured by Mistress-Jaeden )

Congratulations on this DD. You certainly deserve it. I'm glad something from the TC image got selected. :)

Also, "the art has to look good before the pixeling to look good after the pixeling"

I'm going to need some help wrapping my brain around that'un! This is full of a ton of information. And it's pretty cool seeing how it was built, too. Thanks so much for making it! Perhaps someday... :)

easy translation: if it's a bad drawing before you start, pixeling it isn't going to magically make it good, so make sure you spend your time/energy on something worthwhile.

and what's with the reply to yourself, those don't show up in my messages :faint:

Yeah, I realized what it meant not 5 seconds after I hit "send." :dummy: I'm not sure what state of mind I was in when I didn't get that. Sure would be embarrassing if I were really that stupid! Oh, and I replied to myself to avoid spamming you, and because I knew you would see it eventually. :)
