Damn, its so God damned difficult! I can do it but it takes a good while and the end result isn't quite what i was hoping for... I'm just wondering if there are any techniques to designing nice looking sprites? I'm not horrible when it comes to artistic things but I'm far from perfect. people such as Hayo etc etc make some really beatiful sprites - How do you do it?! I must know!

Talent does help quite a lot, but there are also lots of useful techniques and tricks that you can learn.

Just google "pixel art tutorial", and you'll find some pretty useful stuff.

There's a really nice one on www.derekyu.com (the guy who made Eternal Daughter)

I fight with pixels until they finally give up in defeat.

No skill neccessary, just lots and lots of time.

Actually I do think skills are necessary. But it takes lots of time to build it up ŽD

Hmm I think it kinda depends. Some people can't draw because they lack imagination and intelligence and they won't be able to pixel as well. Other people can't draw because they have wanky hands, there's still hope for them when it comes to pixeling. And skill is prolly just what you get when you put loads of time in it.

Skills are NOT neccessary. I had ZERO skill when I started. What i did have, though, was lots of TIME.

BTW I'm going off Skills = Talent. I have no talent for graphics, I've fought long and hard for every damned pixel I've made. I have gotten much better at recognizing what makes a good sprite and what makes a bad sprite, which has helped me tremendously.

"Pixel Art" is an "Art", hence requiring at least some degree of skill and knowledge.

I admire pixel artists for their patience and artistic eye. It's easy to make 'any' art, but extremely hard to make 'ART' art, like how hishnak, adam, hayo, haita etc do

I'll agree that Pixel Art and sprites are two separate things. Pixel artists just tend to be excellent at spriting as well.

I see where shab is coming from, the only time I make good sprites is just loads of time, or a real lucky try... Normal art and pixel are don't directly influence each other, though normal drawing helps with anatomy etc.
