What You’ll Be Creating If you’ve ever wanted to try out game development and character design, then this tutorial is for you! Today we’ll be creating a sprite sheet for a fancy bird-like creature for video and mobile games, using various tools and functions of Affinity Designer. We’ll go through the full process, from outlining the sketch to coloring and creating a set of poses that can be used for animation. Let’s get started! 1. Draw the Basic Parts of the Character Step 1 I usually start making up a character by sketching and trying to find the proper image, an interesting form, and an unusual appearance. Try combining some fictional details of animals or objects that you meet in real life, searching for original and extraordinary solutions. You can get inspired by browsing through the game characters
What You’ll Be Creating From Space Invaders to Super Mario, pixel art is well known within the game industry of yore. It’s quite likely that you grew up seeing a great deal of the art form through gaming consoles or PCs without a great deal of investigation into the process of creating it. If, however, you were anything like me as a child, simply guiding Link through Hyrule was not enough: you wanted to create the artwork he swung his sword in, too. As pixel art in game design, illustration, and other media has made quite a comeback in recent years (likely due to nostalgia and an appreciation of a beautiful, if sometimes tedious, style of artwork), it’s a great time to ask the question: “What’s the deal with pixel art?” What Qualifies as Pixel Art? Video game style pixel sprites. Considering that everything you are viewing on your monitor, tablet, or phone is comprised of many, many pixels, the often asked question is “how is this not pixel art?” It’s art, it’s made of pixels, so surely all digital art is pixel art. While technically correct, when talking about “pixel art”, we’re focused on a specific style of artwork most often employed within the gaming industry. Pixel art is a raster-based digital work that is created on a pixel-by-pixel level.

What You’ll Be Creating We’re continuing the work on our isometric pixel art world, and on this occasion we’ll add an industrial workplace to our library. It may be good to make it look dull, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty as well. We’ll be using some brick texture yet again, some metallic elements, huge chimneys and some smoke plumes. Let’s get to work. Check previous tutorials in this series if you haven’t; most lessons cover Photoshop tips and tricks and pixel-art specifics that I may not necessarily cover in the later tutorials. All this isometric, geometric, pixel-perfect work can get difficult or tedious; if you find doing the work unappealing, feel free to shop for great ready-made

What You’ll Be Creating Fallout 4 is here! We’ve decided to celebrate it by giving you a chance to draw your own Vault Boy. Step by step, you’ll learn how to build a complex silhouette out of ovals and curves. Maybe you’ll even learn how to draw your own Fallout character in this style? Let’s see! 1. Draw the Body Before we start, choose one of two ways of drawing (if you draw digitally, just skip this): Draw all the lines very subtly, and then finish them strongly when the drawing is done. Draw the lines as you want, then use the method from the last section of my tutorial How to Draw a Baby Fox . Step 1 Draw a circle. It doesn’t need to be perfect or very clean. Step 2 Take a measure from the radius of the circle and draw a line three times as long. Step 3 Draw a line at the bottom. The part on the right should be longer than the radius. Step 4 Let’s build the guide lines for the legs. First, draw a curve between the middle of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 5 Now draw a curve between the bottom of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 6 Find the half point of the middle radius-line. Draw a curve coming though it. Step 7 Use the same point to draw another curve. Step 8 “Close” the shape with the two last curves. Step 9 Draw the head circle, slightly smaller than the chest circle and more on the right. Step 10 Imagine the head circle is a …
