The Charmeleon shouldn't be bouncing--in actuality, the only objects that move are the emoticon's hands, and at that, they move as just one object. ;3

I should post here more often and help people out. Gah.


Decided to get back into isometric pixel art for now.

I'm not exactly a veteran in isometry or anything, but I'm making pretty good progress as to getting a handling of just what the hell I'm doing.

The shading style was supposed to give it a cartoony look, yes, but yet was also meant to show much detail in the "innards" of the exterior border (black outline.).

This technique, depending on how it is used, tends to make things "pop out at you" a bit more.

No matter how much I had fixed the font, I still despise how it turned out. Meh, I suppose I can work on that tomorrow.

I've had this up since Wednesday.

By the way, that Isometric rectangular prism's lightest green is too highly saturated. May I suggest looking up a tutorial on hue shifting, just for your future reference? It's an must-need technique that can is beneficial in an endless amount of ways.

Want me to say comment on it?

Looks pretty good. My only problem is that front to the left of the sign looks abnormally fat. It's just bothering me.

Front to left? That's a bit of an odd way of wording it. If you're talking about the flat edges, its due to the fact that the Pokemon Center is an octagonal prism-shape, not a perfect four-cornered quadrilateral.

Jeez. I hate this keyboard. *Smashes* Sorry, meant the front of the building, and to the left of the PC sign.

I made a PERFECT isometric cube. http://i54.tinypic.com/1552lfp.png Now you have to teach us to make buildings and towns and whatnot...

Nice job MR! Perfect, DM!

How's this? (Left is reference, Right is Isometric Building.):

I think it came out well.

@Deadshot: I think you did well, but the reference has ridges in between the windows, the the block on top could have a little detail. A tidge more shading would be good too. And look, I turned the cube into a Chinchou! http://i51.tinypic.com/2hmlo91.png

Remember, even with isometry, you need some shading. Spice it up a little bit.

Also make sure that the roof actually overlaps the sides of the building (like in the reference), and that the windows are not running up off of the top of the building. Otherwise, it's not bad. It could just really use some "spicing up," like DM mentioned, because it is quite blan


Oh my ****** god, are you FREAKING serious?! Wow. Earlier I had ONCE AGAIN edited this post to provide MORE helpful details, but instead of actually editing it--EVEN THOUGH IT SAID IT DID--It just ****** disconsidered it all. Really?! What the ****. This is the THIRD or SECOND FREAKIN time.

Mmm, true. If you're making an exact (or pretty close) replica of the house in isometry, it needs the same details as your reference.
