Pixel Tutorial: Beach Background by ClefairyKid Pixel Tutorial: Beach Background by ClefairyKid


THIS TUTORIAL IS FOR YOU TO LEARN FROM, NOT TO COPY OR TRACE OVER PIXEL BY PIXEL.

Base of the doll featured at the end: [link]
Base of surfboard is a QBee.com exclusive

This is a tutorial that shows how I made my beach background for my Beach Baby Doll. It's got a lot of ideas that can be used for other beach and waterscape scenes, such as the kind of hues for the water and the sky and when to dither and when to AA. It is NOT an explanation of colour picking, dithering or AA themselves, but involves those things. Watch out for tutorials in the future for those things specifically, I simply can't cover them all in one tutorial :faint:

:bulletred: Does require the user to have small, basic knowledge of terminology such as "dithering", "AA" and "hue". Therefore I would recommend this for intermediate difficulty and above. :bulletred:

Tools: PS CS4, Pjuk Hand Pixel Font, Pjuk Simple Pixel Font

Pixel art is the same no matter which program you use, they are all hand placed pixels.

Umm.. it's my artwork, it's not for you to go cutting up into pieces for your own art, it's actually a tutorial to learn to make backgrounds on your own. Please don't steal my work.
