hey guys. i think this is my first post here? hopefully there'll be many more. been using the free version of construct 2 for a couple weeks?haven't dont much yet other than tutorials, but i love it so far.
primarily i am a pixel artist and the reason i came here in the first place is because i like to make graphics for games but can't program for sh*t <img src="smileys/smiley5.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
but i'm working on a big pixel art tutorial and i figured i'd post it to share with you guys so we can get off on the right foot
as of now i have the first few sections done. i wasn't originally going to post this but it's probably gonna be a LONG TIME before this thing is actually finished, so i'm going to release the sections in a blog format: they'll be updated whenever I create a new one. i'll update this topic whenever i make a new part, too.
because they're pretty long and have a lot of images i'm going to link to them, but i'll give a description.
just the introduction to the series: it outlines my goals and philosophies
Thinking in Color
mostly this article covers some of the very basics: color terms worth knowing. it's sort of introductory into the next section
Read Between the Pixels
contrast! this section goes into detail explaining how to get the most out of the contrast between your colors
Using and Choosing Colors
this is a big one?it's all about color choice and creating a color palette. this is the tutorial that is most often requested. so hopefully a lot of people will find it useful.
Form and Light
on the subject of creating sprites by thinking about their three-dimensional forms and how the light hits them
i'm also using the same site for my writing tutorials and if i create any free game resources i'll set up a section for them.
i would appreciate not only feedback on these articles, but also SUGGESTIONS and REQUESTS. i have some very speficic ideas about where I want to go next, but i'm gonna leave you with an important question:
<font size="5">what do you want to see in a pixel tutorial?</font> <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
