Commission: Rellam by medli20 Commission: Rellam by medli20
Commission for ~Jeevana who requested an animated pixel doll of her character Rellam.

This was a lot of fun to do, since I don't normally draw characters with blue skin. I think I'm getting faster at doing these bobbing pixel animations, too, which is a good thing :D

I asked on another artwork of yours, but for unknown reasons I shall ask again, how do you do these? they are AMAZING.

Aaaahhh, sorry for the late reply; I've been busy doing all sorts of school-related things ><;;

Anyway, basically, I use Photoshop to draw each doll, keeping all the moving parts on their own separate layers. Then I import the .psd into Adobe Imageready, where I move the parts around and adjust the timing to create the animation.

If you don't have Photoshop or Imageready, you can also just make a bunch of still images of the individual animation frames, then import the stills into your run-of-the-mill .gif-compiling freeware to turn it into a moving image. Before I got Imageready, I used to use MS Gif Animator, which is a pretty basic-yet-reliable program to use.

I hope this helps!

Wow, whenever you open your point commisions (unless they are open, stupid me) would a still pixel be a cheaper amount? Because that would be awesome if it was in my range! I'm not very good at pixel (because i never really have....) but I would probably spaz out if you made me a pixel :D

Great job on this pixel, also.
I like the blue skin and the red eyes :) it's a good color mixture. and other than that the detail is great :)

A static pixel would be a bit cheaper than an animated one. My animated pixels are currently 115 points a pop, while my static ones are 100 points each. If you were to be a bit short when I reopen my commissions again, I'd be willing to go cheaper if you threw some art in as well. :)

Thanks a bunch! I really can't take credit for the colors or character design, though; ~Jeevana is the one who came up with the character after all, lol.

Wow that would be great if you could do that! But I'm not the best artist (without a tablet that is, and mine is broke..) I would easily finish up a drawing for you that I'm already working on :P Which is my first ACTUAL deviation really. It's for a project that I MIGHT turn into a sculpture. Maybe I could give you the sculpture... But anyways, that would be really kind of you :)

That is true, but I love the detail you put into the shading and stuff like that. I can't shade worth anything, haha. :) As you might see once i post the deviation mentioned above.

Normally, a pixel doll of this size with simple animation is 115 points a pop, but my commissions are closed at the moment.

I think these are really cool...
but I can't help but be bothered by the dissapearing hair on the top of his head as it exits the frame TT^TT

Aaaa, he's so cute! Aofhawofow I love it, I'm glad you had fun doing it. :heart:

And you gave him his bow, it's a nice touch and that smile, hurr. I'm going to stare at this for the next few hours for now.

Thank you very much for such beautiful commission. :love:

Admittedly, the animation isn't super smooth. But the shading is well done here. :3
