#5197932 portfolio feedback

Posted by riuthamus on 13 December 2014 - 01:38 AM

Characters are solid, but yes, the enviroments are lacking a bit of... something. The feeling is not there and they lack depth. I felt like I was in CS 1.6.

#5197793 "Stun Down" Status Effect Icon

I will play with it today, but my question is why only 12x12... that is such a small icon it is not even funny.

Another tutorial will be coming out this week. We will be focusing on turning silhouettes into forms. If I have time I will add in the lighting tutorial as well.

Well, as with anything we need to start simple rather than jump to the most complex form. For you to understand a Cube you need to first understand a square. Volume+Shape is certainly a crucial element in art. We will go over the wrong method (what most people do) and the proper when creating 3d shapes shortly. This currently teaches the people the importance of silhouettes and shows them how easy drawing them can be if you look at things from a shape perspective.

#5194446 Tutorial Series

Posted by riuthamus on 24 November 2014 - 10:54 AM

I have finished the tutorial parts. I am working on the writeup. Sadly, real life has taken a toll on most of the art stuff. I am in the works of a move from the Cali to Hawaii. On top of that I was stuck with duty (extra work for military people, mandatory not punitive) all last week and was unable to work on anything art related. I am making it a personal goal to have this completed and posted by Friday. I do appreciate your interest and apologize for the delay.

#5194445 2D Sanbox graphics (like terraria)

Posted by riuthamus on 24 November 2014 - 10:51 AM

My first complaint is the backgrounds vs the foreground detail. Furthermore, the background has higher contrast and darker tones (not really normal for such things) so that might be something you want to fix.

#5191614 Vertically scrolling underwater game, what to use as background?

Posted by riuthamus on 06 November 2014 - 08:51 PM

Simple gradient background with parallaxed elements in the background. Best result is to make something not noisy and super simplistic.

Worked on getting all the topics we discussed in place. I will be aiming to have this video up and going by next weekend. We might need to change it from weekly to bi-weekly for the first few since I am in the process of moving.

A lot of those topics are great. I have noted them and will start working at what we should cover and when. We want to start with the most basic and work out way up. This way we have a solid foundation to work from. Thanks for the ideas guys!

You could go for an even more stylized look and make it paper. So it looks like the Pictures were drawn onto something.

So, given the new attachments... I really like the bottle's and overall art style. I am not a fan of the background for the cards but the actual art is wonderful.

#5185724 Tutorial Series

Posted by riuthamus on 08 October 2014 - 06:09 AM

Sounds like a plan. I will write up some introduction stuff and make the first video this weekend. Thanks for the comments guys.

#5185528 Tutorial Series

Posted by riuthamus on 07 October 2014 - 08:12 AM

Well, that is in part why I wanted to ask if people were interested. Figured we could start off with the basics of shape, move into lighting, and then finish up with some color theory. Once we got the basics in place we could work on "topics" people wanted.

  • Pixel Art
  • 2d art
  • Vector art
  • Concept art
  • 3d Art
  • Hand Painted Textures
  • Texturing of assets
  • Optimization of Assets

And any other topics people might have/want to cover.
