Day 1: the land by tatasz Day 1: the land by tatasz
So, long time ago, I used to do pixel art. It is a useful skill, and I want to work on it a bit more. For this reason, I will do a pixel art thing for 30 days in a row - not necessarely cool stuff, but at least something.
The pic above is the current state of affairs:
- I don't know how to dither (or I am too lazy to do it properly)
- I don't know how to draw (again, possibly I am just lazy because "too much work" was the reason I stopped drawing in first place

Don't be disappointed if the next pieces are even crappier, since I will focus on more technical aspects of the whole thing at first

Hopefully, bezo97 will join me in this quest.
Other folks who are willing to experiment are more than welcome to join the fun.

If you don't know where to start, here a couple of tutorials for you (there are much more on DA :dummy:):

This is actually pretty damn good, I think. There's a great layering of hues that perfectly create the impression of dawn (or twilight?), and of distant depth. I personally really like it :D

My gosh, why are you saying this is crappy, it's gorgeous! :star:
I think it's an excellent piece, and I look forward to any more pixel-pieces or -practices you have coming up! Good luck with the 30 day challenge!

I have to say, for a pixel-art piece, this one may be small and humble but it's most certainly as beautiful as a painting. :nod:
The colour palette is simple, yet all the shades of yellow, green, brown and white create a complete and peaceful harmony. :D
Exquisite work, fellow deviant! :clap: This deviation is totally :+fav:'d! :thumbsup::D

Really good composition. Was it supposed to be early morning? Really good choice of colours too and mood/ambience.
