OTL DITHERING BY HAND? WHAT BLASPHEMY IS THIS??
This is ALLL Pixel art. I may have cheated a bit on the pants with opacities, but otherwise everything else was done by hand. The background was done by selecting areas and gradually increasing brightness (I actually redid this a few times because the first time it looked WAY TOO smooth and not like pixel art at all, LOL. I ended up makinf a photoshop action for it.)
Erm... What to say here...
Was experimenting with different shading techniques. Thought it would be cool to add "texture" to some of it, but was unsure how to do this while keeping true to it being "pixel art". I think I did okay.
All I used was the pencil tool and all selections had anti-alias unchecked, so any smoothness you see was TIME CONSUMING SWEAT AND TEARS.
I probably won't shade this way EVER AGAIN. Forget it. I'll just tool shit from now on. Seriously. Props to all you real pixel artists. That shit is way too time consuming for me.
This is my OC, Lori~
He is pretty cool. "Trickster thief" sums his character up rather nicely. He's a dragon anthro and lives on an arid planet.
