Lynxie's Pixel Art

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Lynx on Sun Oct 07, 2007 12:31 am

I'm not a very good artist, but something I enjoy doing is making pixel dollies on MSPaint. (I don't have PaintShop or anything, so I have to use plain old MSP...but I like it better anyway. :) ) Tell me what you think. Also, although I have a couple Halloween cards I'm working on, I'll take character pic requests if you like. That'd be fun. Anyway...


One of my favoritest favorites. This is a hobbit girl, a character I created 5 years ago and still refine and use today. I didn't realize until after I finished her and was all happy with her and everything that her hair is ree-DIC-ulously long. And it's in a braid - physics taken into account, her hair is almost down to her ankles! I hate doing braids, too, so I could have saved myself some grief and just made it shorter. But, such is life. :lol: Base - Sabraelle's Garden.

This was my first experiment with leather pants. I went through this serious leather phase when I decided I did a good job and then...never used the technique again. I keep meaning to try again, but I haven't had the oppurtunity. I couldn't decide whether I liked the pants in black or white better either, so what the hey! I used both. (Ignore the terrible hair - I still can't do hair very well.) Base - If Looks Could Kill

A couple years ago, I decided to make my mother a birthday card on the computer instead of on paper because...well, I just didn't feel like it, and anyway, it was a good excuse to try making the clown. The pattern gave me so much trouble until I realized there was a much easier (i.e. lazier) way of doing it. This was my first real tackle with patterns and I still don't use them especially often just because they're a pain in the arse and I need to develop my technique, or lack thereof. Base - Gee, I don't really know...

More to come. :)

Wow, these are pretty good! Thanks for sharing them. Amber (JeSuisINSANE here on the boards) is another good MSPaint artist... but I don't think she has any art here. If you see her around, be sure to ask her to show you them.

I would certainly take requests if I got any. I think on another forum I had actually taken one or two but left the forum after a while.

Turns out I can stay online longer than expected, so...


This was for a contest that I entered (and lost). The contest involved making a Berry Fairy. This is actually contest entry version 2.0 because I orginally entered two fairies (Boysenberry and Girlsenberry) but could only enter one. So, I removed the boy fairy and changed the backdrop. I like it better this way. (P.S., I have to mention this - those wings are mine. Based on something else, but mine nonetheless. :D )
Image

I was so spazzed over this skirt when I did it, I thought it was great. I still like the doll (it's based on Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday) but I think now the skirt looks a bit...odd. More braids. As much as I hate DOING braids, I really enjoy how they looks both in real life and if I do them properly. A rare but pleasant occurance.
Image

Excuse me please if I shamelessly pat myself on the back for ths one. I'm very proud of it. I drew, patterned, and shaded the wings myself, without a base. The hair's a bit iffy, but I think it works. The best part, the part I'm most fond of, are the wing joints. They gave me all kinds of hell, but the result is worth it, I think. (A note on the lack of clothing - she wasn't gonna be nekkid, but I couldn't get clothes to fall properly on the position, or a decent design.) Base - Doodle Dollies (no link at the moment)
Image

The first two dolls are on Sabraelle's Garden bases. I use hers a lot...

Double post, bwahaha. ::attempts to get a response::

This girl was conceived as a fairy, but I liked her so much, I decided to forgo wings in case she looked too busy. The outfit was based on one I'd found in a dollmaker by the way, so it's not totally mine. Some, but not all, like the color scheme. About the base...it's another from Sabraelle's Garden, but this one's special. I don't like using it, but I felt obliged because I named it. I won a Name-theBase contest for this particular one and she used her mad skillz to make me a custom dollie as a reward. :D The base is called 'Zoete'. If someone speaks Dutch and is mad at me, I'm sorry.

Image

This started as a drawing I just redrew on MSPaint. It was a pain in the butt getting the spiky designs on the dress which is why they're not in great shape. Personally, I like the pencil drawing better, but I was...pleasantly surprised, shall we say, with how this little mess turned out. Base - Sabraelle's Garden
Image

This was a veeeeery early doll, one of my firsts, which explains the absolutely terrible hair that I'll get around to fixing...someday. What I liked about it was the fact that I used only colors and shades I pulled from the background (a piece of a stretched out picture of trees) for the skin, hair, wings (which I didn't draw myself, I used someone's base wings)and clothing (or what there is of clothing). This is definitely not of great quality, but it has a special place in my heart anyway. :) Base - God, I don't remember, this was like, 2003, 2004.
