the trick is that im not a trained artist and working in low resolution with a limited number of brushes allows u to work in a very forgiving envrionment. of course as ive gotten better i spend a lot more time on it and the tools get a bit restrictive, but ive tried painting in photoshop and it just looks bad to me because i dont have as much knowledge of foundations, so the awe goes both ways.

i dont really think of it as pixel art tbh, im not interested in the pixel-by-pixel precision that real pixel artists have, i just dont have the patience. what i do is more of a jumped up KidPix, or Mario Paint

Hi man, thanks for the advice. I did this picture of Hagrid whilst trying to take on board what you said. I also tried to keep your advice regarding hair in mind as I drew it; but I think I fell trap to my urge to always take 7 lines when 1 will do.



I think the skin is much better than on my previous drawings, but still some ways to go. Hair, still not happy with though honestly.

this is definitely a marked improvement from the previous ones you showed, good job i dont really have anything constructive to add unfortunately b/c this is well out of my wheelhouse

i made this as an av for a chvrches-obsessed friend but i wanted to post it here because it turned out really well, especially the animation (it was a still image and I added the wink)



this is not my usual style, so any critiques????

that chart actually makes me feel kinda worse because basically when im really proud of something it's only because i don't yet recognize how bad it sucks lol.

i honestly don't tend to get art blocks because when i'm super depressed i tend to channel my negative feelings into my drawings because its my hobby more than my calling

Im the exact same way. I like to digest the information at my own pace and often find videos are rather...slow in dripfeeding me the information I want.

Also ironically considering I'm trying to learn to be a better artist, I'm not a visual learner haha.

my art education is i have a friend/mentor who every once in a while says "you should try this" and i try it and make a huge leap. posting itt helps too
