What You’ll Be Creating Traditional painting by default is not very precise. The brushes are made for creating big patches of colors that may become details when observed from a distance. When you try to paint at a smaller scale using a tiny brush, it turns into a drawing. In digital painting the border between drawing and painting is quite blurred. In the end it boils down to one difference: if you’re trying to control the stroke, you’re drawing; if you want the stroke to be free and expressive, you’re painting. The problem occurs when you want to be expressive with your strokes and make them behave at the same time. It’s not possible in traditional painting, but in Photoshop we can do it quite easily, without overusing the Eraser Tool.

What You’ll Be Creating Advertising is everywhere, and it’s possible that it will need to crop up in your pixel art world. So today we’re going to find out how to turn a regular image into its isometric pixel art equivalent by making a billboard ad. Please refer to the pixel art character tutorial before doing this one. 1. Dimensions Let’s first do the billboard; this will be our canvas-within-a-canvas for most of the actual work. We’ll use the character to define the height of our billboard post. Step 1 Four times the character’s height seems tall enough, and anyway this would be easy to adjust later on.

What You’ll Be Creating When you design a character on a 2D sheet, everything is clear for you. Sure, you’re showing only one side, but you know exactly how the character would look in any other perspective. However, the 3D artist, whose job is to take your design and bring it to the third dimension, can’t read your mind. They can only see what you give to them—one side of a multi-dimensional design in your head. To reduce the risk of misunderstanding, when designing a character try to describe as many aspects of it as possible. One of the ways to do it is to create a model sheet . Its goal is to show more dimensions than only one drawing would. For example, the front view shows you the full height and width, but it tells you nothing about the depth. Also, the front and back may be totally different. This is the same object seen from the front (A) and the side (B) This tutorial will be a simulated process of performing the task of a conceptual artist. I’ll show you how to accomplish it step by step, explaining each step in detail—from the analysis of the commission through to the research of the topic, the design, and the full execution of the idea. You don’t need any digital drawing software for this, although it’s recommended. 1. Commission Analysis Let’s say you’re a freelance concept artist. A company producing video games contacts you, you come to agreement, and they tell you what exactly they want you to do: “It should be one of three playable …

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you’ll learn to make an isometric pixel art car. Have your character ready; it’s going for a ride. We’ll be creating a relatively generic sedan. It won’t be too flashy, which is ideal for recycling many times over on the same illustration (useful if you’re making a city scene!). But even though it’ll be generic, it wouldn’t hurt to see some reference images; maybe there are simple design elements from actual car models that you can incorporate into your car graphic. Make sure you have already gone through the isometric pixel art character tutorial ;
