I said it 132400 times and I'll say it again: It's all in the practice and self teaching. Get some tutorials and get some patience and will and I"m sure you will start improving in no time.

Best way to improve is to start. Your contributions are welcome here, no matter what skills you have. Head over to www.spriteart.com and check out the tutorials, because they will point you in the right direction from the very outset. That's my advice. The rest is practice, patience, and fun!

And yes, recreation of the egg into a creature is a little boring.... FINALLY got my computer back, now I'll have a go at pixelling a creature from one of these eggs...

Well deal with it. o_0

 

I honestly don't know why you made it so big even if it is a trademark that your work is big or whatever....bizarre. Could've easily made it egg-size... ?

 

Okay now that my initial thought of holy crap it's ginormous has passed, I think the colours are a bit garish but I like the dithering style and the top of the egg's shape. It's a bit overwhelming looking at it so huge though y'know.

pshaw... yeah. Why would you make an egg the size of Kirsty Alley and expect someone to comment on the shading technique. I mean, c'mon. When you make it that big you kinda "out" the quality factor, and emphasize quantity.

Way back up (ok, not really) to the egg of monastic proportions... something that big has millions more room for texture and stuff. There's oodles of pixels in something that size... use them!

And to make it look more transparent-y, bail on the black outline. Make it... not black... iunno. Something lighter.

And does your egg have a name, so-lou?

I didn't expect or desire for people to comment on the shading, this thread isn't WIP it's finished pieces for colab. and I don't see why my particular piece is now getting critiqued just because it's a bit larger than the other works. Honestly, all other digital artists other than pixellers work MUCH bigger, so why do you all live in these tiny boxes? It can't be THAT shocking to see a piece of this size because compared to ANY OTHER FORM OF ART OUT THERE, it's still TINY.

whatever, I've removed it, the thread can continue without the disgusting taint of my attempt at originality.

Saiklor - Why did you remove it? Just because a couple of people commented on its sheer sizedoesn't mean it's not appreciated. Personally, I think it was cool. You've definitely your own style and you shouldn't have to change it for other people. Put it back up so others have a chance to do something with it. If there is any more bs surrounding it from other people, there will be reprocussions I am sure.

I don't want to have to do it but, if this continues on, I will lock this thread and you guys can forget about the eggs altogether.

Dude, it was fine I liked it. I loved the shading, and didn't mind the size at all. Some one could have made a huge bird/monster for that one.

Geez, talk about uptight. Re-post your egg and stop complaining about people's reaction to the size. If people are all making "regular" sized artworks and then someone walks in with this mother canvas piece, of COURSE people will say 'whoa that's big' before they even think about the colours, style etc. So calm down and get over it. Not a big deal. And it seems you didn't even read all the praise you got about the dithering style etc. What do you think Napoleon? "GOSH!!!"

 

Back on topic, I am pixelling some cross-breed creatures at the moment and more eggs as well.  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with next.

 

And yes Saboteur, my egg's name is in my post right under the egg.

So-Lou: I will not repost my egg. (and check your PM's)

And I think that insulting me is pretty off-topic, don't do it again, and if you must, PM me, that's what it's there for.

And since I won't be reposting the creature someone else should do the plasma egg, it's got a really great palatte and loads of room for interpretation. T'would be a pity if it weren't made into a critter just because of this......fiasco.

Here's a creature for So-Lous 5 min. egg.

 

5 min. egg, 10 min creature. I like it. The shading could use some work but I don't really feel like going back to change it.

hahaha... Saiklor, your such a goddamn drama queen. We didn't even say anything mean and you just ran off into the corner and cried. I mean, c'mon. seriously.. you're too sensitive. We didn't even GIVE any CC... we just commented something like this:

"wow your egg is big"

"FINE! You wont have to look at my HORRIBLE egg anymore!" *takes egg away and pouts*

@ Garage: Nifty looking creature.

Ookay, so I tried something a little different this time..



XD I dunno WHAT inspired me to do that. I was thinking.. dinosaur.. then I was thinking, head with huge teeth.. then I was thinking snowman... XD So it all just kind of molded together with that inspiration in mind.

And from the snowman and dinosaur concept, I got the idea for this egg!



heh.. it's an ice egg with.. what's that inside? *gasp* *ooh* *aaah* XD :P

Saiklor: 'I didn't expect or desire for people to comment on the shading, this thread isn't WIP it's finished pieces for colab. and I don't see why my particular piece is now getting critiqued just because it's a bit larger than the other works.'

I just thought I would say what I liked about it after my comment of 'it's huge' because you seemed to offended that that was the first comment. So I tried to redeem myself by commenting about the other things other than its size. But there's no pleasing you.

Saiklor: 'Honestly, all other digital artists other than pixellers work MUCH bigger, so why do you all live in these tiny boxes? It can't be THAT shocking to see a piece of this size because compared to ANY OTHER FORM OF ART OUT THERE, it's still TINY.'

Pixel art is an artform that works primarily on small canvas's because essentially they are tiny dots put into place 'one at a time' and usually used for mobile phone games (small canvas), web graphic animations (small), icons (small) etc. Of course, comparing your egg to ALLLL the artforms out there, it will look small. But that's like comparing an abstract portrait to a real-life portrait - OMG ONES ALL FUNNY LOOKING AND THE OTHER LOOKS REAL. That's because they're from different forms of art. ;)

Saiklor: 'whatever, I've removed it, the thread can continue without the disgusting taint of my attempt at originality.'

And the oscar for the most dramatic performance goes to....  Listen, one, nobody even dissed your egg in the first place. Secondly, there ARE other huge pieces of pixel art out there. Splatpixels work for example. And you know what someone says to him? "Whoa that's huge" and he says "yes" and they say "huge and SEXY" - because they are. If you can't accept people's first reaction (which isn't even negative in the first place) then you might find taking actual criticism, even harder. ^_^

Now to try and make you understand the drastic action of your taking down your egg completely, here are some nice things said about your egg that you may have missed when getting pissed off for no reason:

So-lou said: 'I like the dithering style and the top of the egg's shape.'

Pixelblink said: 'Personally, I think it was cool. You've definitely your own style'

TakeOut said: 'Dude, it was fine I liked it. I loved the shading'

Lastly, Saiklor, I don't think my 'insult' of saying you behaved in an uptight manner by taking down your egg was in any way harsh, cruel or pointless. You really just need to laugh this off and acknowledge that you got offended for absolutely NO reason. I even tried to make my post sound upbeat with a Napoleon Dynamite quote. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE!

Aleiav worded my exact reaction to this. So please, Saiklor - I'm not trying to be vindictive or patronising in any way, and am simply trying to get you to lighten up. We all liked your egg!! So bring it back into this thread post haste. And someone will creature-ise it. ;)

Now back on topic (so sedge won't get the flying monkies onto us) Garage Inc. that is a fantastic little creature !! I may just have to cross-breed him with something! AND that ice egg is MIIINE!

ABSOLUTELY ZERO COMMENTS WHATSOEVER REGARDING SAIKLOR'S EGG AND/OR ANY COMMENTS SURROUNDING THIS DRAMA. ZERO. ZILCH. NADA. BUPKISS. NEVERMORE. THE END.

Sorry for the caps but, I think people disregarded my last statement about locking this thread up altogether. Do not reply to this note either.

POST MORE EGGS AND HATCHES PLEASE!

LESS TALK >> MORE PIXELS

Dammit, I've been putting all my time into my totem scrambling to finish it before the deadline, so I've had to put off working on my cross-breeded creature.

 

I wanna see some new eggs, come on people!
