If I had access to an actual computer where I could pixel, I would say yes. D:

Step Four: Lineart.

Take your sketch and clean it up. You don't necessarily have to do all the things that will end up on it. For example I did my garden, then moved the stump and added a fountain. And added animals at the last minute.

Linearts should be neat though.

Now that we are on the actual pixeling part, if you need help figuring out how to make something work or anything like that. Post it here and I'll help you figure it out.

LOL

Here's Marly:
1. Hey I need help D:
2. Nevermind did it anyway ' 3'
3. Skipped ahead SUCKERS! >D

:B

Well since two people have finished the lineart I guess it's time for the next step! Shading! 8D

Some things are very difficult or imposing to shade. v.v The hardest thing to shade for me was the vines/bricks. D: It wasn't that it was complicated I was just really worried I'd mess up and leave blank spots. Don't be afraid to pull your lineart apart to make it easier to tackle!
Like so:
Image

You'll also maybe find that something you made won't work out. v.v Sadly this can happen. Don't be afraid to change things just cause you finished the lineart already. Don't sacrifice what could be a good piece cause your scared of the lineart. 8D It's your friend!!

For example, in the corner of the screen I orginally had nothing planned. :| Then I was like, oh, a big dragonfly would look cool. :| It in fact did not. :| A duck worked though LOL

If you haven't been doing it already I STRONGLY recommend you start saving somewhere all the steps you do. For the garden scene I just kept saving over my png each time I felt I accomplished something and then uploaded it to photobucket where it would create a new file (since the names were the same, so it didn't take up a ton of room in my files). My folder for my garden has 81 files in it 8D

Again, if you need any help tackling anything lemme know.

:| And don't post you need help and then figure it out. D: I feel useless. XD

Also y'all totally suck for doing this so fast. =_=

Your arc is the wrong color. Is it night or day? If day:

If night:

It needs to be more yellow if it's night, more gray and light either way :D

Actually, I was going to try all warm colors on the top half and all cool colors for the bottom half.

newest WIP. Just wanted to get a quick light source question out of the way. ...Too late for the arc XD But I think that's right....

I think I'm going to try for a sunrise/sunset/sun doing something in the background on top to keep with the warm colors theme up there. I just realized, I'm not sure how I'll do the light source for the items directly in front of the sun.

Shixie: Well if they are directly in front of the sun. They'd be black. Or almost black. You'd get some light around the edges and that's about it. So you'd wanna make them really dark.

I'd suggest for the arc to either make it less contrasty or make the color more khaki cause it looks like it's made of like bronze/metal. >_>

Marly: In your tent you should have more shadows towards the top of the purple part. Since that's the deepest into the tent/canopy it will have a lot of shadow in there. Unless those orbs are also light, then if so disregard that. >_>

Digging the night sky! \o/

Also on your carpet/runway, may I suggest having the purple stripes go out a bit more. Looking at them it kinda looks like they are shrinking since they remain the same width despite getting closer to the "camera"

Would really dark, but still light enough to tell the color, work? And alright on the arc. I'll try to make some of the darker colors more orangish or redddish I think....because I was aiming for orange for the arc and the cathedral, I think...D= Is that ok?

That should be fine. It's just cause of the color AND contrast that it looks metal.

And yeah, I think faking it would be best. :) Just pick REALLY dark versions of the colors you were gonna use. Try googling "building silhouttes" or "buildings at sunset" or something similar for reference.
