Sam's having fun with avatars

#1 Unread post by Samskeyti » Sun Apr 17, 2011 2:50 pm

First, I really admire the pixel art avatars and little cute creatures by Lupis, Darkmoon&co.!! Before reading those threads, I wouldn't know what pixel art is, but now, I'm having so much fun making avatars! :-)

So sharing them here for whoever likes to use them :-) Sometimes I can't be bothered and just finish them quite quickly :-p

First ones before I discovered that there's a pencil tool in Photoshop:

Non pixel avatars:

And then I did find the pencil tool! (And I was camping rares at the time, hence the inspiration :-))

Wow! I had been wondering where you had gotten that epic avatar you were using. Your work is pretty damn amazing not gunna lie. Seems you have as much of a talent for it as Lupis and Moon do! I look forward to seeing what you make! Maybe a gray worgen druid in kitty form..(the orange eyed one!) :3 I just wanna see hehe

Woah, awesome cool! Very well done! More pixel-like than the avatars Moon and I made - which is a good thing. ^.^ I love that style.
The lines are remarkable. Very accurate.

Thank you *hugs* I think the pixels come from the fact that I don't pay too much attention to blending. I think they're great fun to do when you want to be creative but don't want to spent hours and hours on one thing before finishing it. Saying that, I have never managed to complete a digital painting.

Thanks for writing the guide!!

Wow, these are awesome! I love the Silverwing Covenant hippogryph the most, but they're all pretty epic. :D

Ok, on the planner (the ones in my head):

Nightelf cat
Penguin
Netherdrake
Birdie druid
and recolors. Which will be a bit of a pain.

Yes I keep seeing you with his avatar, it makes me smile. It's one I started, but got frustrated because he was so complex and just saved it but didn't find it finished. I love him too, poor mishaped blind dragon <3

I might actually go back to him. I miss him already. x3

I'm tempted to request a sig from someone to make like...a sig with my red dragonflight OC and Atramedes, kinda cuddling or her trying to free him.
