Pixel ID by Messymaru Pixel ID by Messymaru
that's my char, in mecha. i figured the best way to represent me is in a form i truly enjoy drawing (and thinking about). having loved the idea of robotics and super cool robots (i sound like a kid i know >.>;), decided to make my DA ID as a mech (it was originally supposed to be a megaman-ish character but meh)

Well after working on this for a couple of days (yes days XD), i finally finished it and i'm happy ^^

actual pixel sprite: 2 days (with breaks and sleep)
pixel frame: 30 minutes
bg: less than the time it took to make the frame
portrait: LONG! i did a rough sketch with a ballpen in some restaurant then scanned it but i ended up retracing the whole thing in photoshop again >.> then added details shading etc.. rawr >.>

just a few notes:
special thanks to :iconz3r0t0lerance: for first giving me the idea of actually doing this :P

i havnt done pixel art in such a long time and this was a rather refreshing piece ^^ im so used to doing isometric pixel art and this particular piece didnt really follow that strict pixel art style so it wasnt so hard (well, it was but.. not as hard as doing something in isometric >.< )

pixelized robot was first sketched, then scanned, then i followed derek yu's pixel tutorial and ta-da ^^

oh, and yeah i simply followed the guidelines given by :iconscrotumnose: in his journal ^^

<3 to all the other people making pixel ids out there

[edit] noticed how so many people have :+fav:ed this so i'd just like to say, thank you very much :)

wait a moment... you've done ALL THIS? O__O without editing anything? I'm really envious XD

Favourite game: Z.O.E. // FF Tactics // FFXI // Vagrant Story // Front Mission // Armored Core

you haven't play at xenogears and xenosaga, that's bad! XD
If you like gears, mechas, you have to!

Scintillating.

Yours is by far the most eye-catching when it comes to any form of mecha. The very core of the ID resembles that of the Tallgeese III, my favorite Gundam of all suits...

although looking back, adding too much detail is a no-no for pixel sprites... eep i hope they (referring to the people who started this :P) dont ask for animation frames for the sprite XD

thanks for visiting ^^
