A "tiny" problem?
Jul. 18th, 2007 @ 12:08 am
I usually show my pixel art at the some chatrooms to see if they have any errors and some people are complaining saying my art is too tiny...
As far as I know, nobody has told me it's too small, which confuses me...
Does anybody else see them overly tiny? Should I make them bigger?
Frankly I don't even see how they would look better big, isn't pixel art about minimalism?
Someone even told me that they were being nice and that I really suck....
But... I won a couple fanart art contests.... :(
Sigh.. I dunno...
Some of the pixel pun art is a little bit tough to understand, and that's usually because it's too small. It doesn't have to be super small to be pixel art, I mean, sprites for 8-bit video games aren't small.
Also, maybe people around you are being nice and not pointing out flaws in your art, but that happens. That doesn't mean you have to listen to people who just tell you you suck without actually saying how or why. If someone tells you you suck and then tells you how or why they think you do, take that information, think about it, and make the decision whether you want to act on it or not.
You have a good talent/skill with the pixel art. It's surprising to see how well it ends up turning out. And there's never anywhere to go but up when you keep practicing every day like you do.
Actually, my pixel puns are bigger or about the same size as 8-bit sprites, which reminds the person who ragged me about the most couldn't tell the difference between pixel art and the people who make sprite comics....
The thing is that I always see them perfectly because I made them!
You're a great pixel artist. I don't really care if it's small because that's what pixel art really is.

I think they're cool! some are a bit smaller than they could be, but it's never bothered me THAT much! and seriously, you don't suck by any means! In FACT, I'd say you're pretty damn good at it!

Thanks! Well, he/she seem to think pixel artists where no different from sprite comics... :/
I've sometimes thought that it would be nice if they were a little bigger, but they are cute when they're so tiny!
Well, I guess some of them would have looked better if I made them bigger, like the sword one... But hey, I'm still learning!
I think it's fine. Pixel art is supposed to be either big or small, I often see it as small.
Thanks! From someone who has done great pixel art it means a lot to me!
I like them the way they are and some day you can post a whole page full of them.
Well, I am close to 100, maybe I can so something then?
I kinda always thought the whole point was to have them tiny, icon-sized.
They are mostly nice to me, except for the few who complain about my pixel art... She/he wasn't that hostile, she/he just seemed to hate my art and thought I was being stupid and stubborn for not making them bigger...

I like them. Yes they are small, but to me that gives them the feeling of icons or something you can really use. Small isn't a bad thing!
