Post by polly » Sun Dec 14, 2014 5:53 am

hello there! :D
well im new here and a friend showed me this website and i guess it is very awesome and it looks so cute! <3
so after lurking around a bit i decided to post my intro thread :mrgreen:
ok! so my name is polly and i am thirteen years old!
i am not a great pixeller, i am just a beginner who likes to fangirl after seeing other people's pixel work :roll:
i dont have any great programs to pixel in but i do have ms paint and gimp :hey:
to be honest, i have tried pixelling before but i NEVER liked my work so i hope to find some nice tutorials or some inspiration~ o u o

Hey! Some of these should help: http://www.google.com/#q=pixel+tutorials+for+beginners

Also, the site I showed you(Kawaiihannah) may have some links to other sites and those may have tutorials! And this is a goof place too! http://chama.eclectic-blue.com/ I really love her bases!

Hey polly welcome!
Just like Turtlesensei said it can be a little slow around here, but as you can see everyone is super helpful and pretty nice too C:
Dont worry about not liking your work at first, hardly anyone is awesome at something at first, it takes lots of practice! Dont be afraid to post something even if your sure its awful (because its probebly not!) and if you would like we can all give you some pointers and some cc.
If you are having a hard time finding bases you should take a look at the base area here -->viewforum.php?f=5 and also the exclusive base area here -->viewforum.php?f=22

Welcome to Glam! Don't worry about not having fancy programs- all I use are ms paint and gimp too. Feel free to post a thread in the rehearsals forum if you need help. The people here are always happy to share tips!

*dances around* Yay! Welcome!

We were all beginners once, so don't be afraid to show off your dolls. Or anything pixel-arty or made any other way, or just drawings. Just see how quick you improve your style if you keep making dolls.

Looking forward to seeing them :)

Well, I'll take a look and try to give you some ideas and tips. Some things are just ideas, and you should definitely try to find your own style.

But other things are just ways to make things look better. I'll show you.

Welcome to Glam! The more you pixel, the more you'll get better... (Stalking your favorite artists also helps too.) :D
