Tendon pixel by medli20 Tendon pixel by medli20
Well it has been months since I've worked in my usual animated pixel style, so I figured I'd work my way back into the groove by making an animated pixel thing of Tendon, one of my old, underused characters. His design has changed a bit since the last picture he's been in, since the biker aspect didn't seem to fit in too well with the Tengu aspect. So, I figured I'd go with a more traditional Japanese look.

I'm relatively pleased with the way this turned out, but some things could use some work. I originally wanted his sword to tilt a bit as well, but it ended up looking too wiggly and weird.

Oh yeah, and this is my first time doing the whole thing in Photoshop, instead of using Imageready to animate. Now I kind of understand why Adobe discontinued Imageready...

Don't give up; pixel art can be daunting at times, but with a little patience, practice, and determination, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in no time! :hug:

I am? Shoot! I thought giving encouraging words to my watchers would drive 'em off! >:O (lol jk, jk)

I use Adobe Photoshop CS2, but I hear that there some pretty good free art programs out there. Firealpaca and GIMP are pretty decent apparently, but I've never really tried them myself so I can't give you a first-hand opinion on those.

c: Thanks, I have GIMP though I cannot move body parts around like your pixels do.
I don't wanna annoy you or anything but have you ever used MS? :3 I'm just wondering haha

Does GIMP not support layers? :o I thought it did.

I've used MS Paint before, but only like once or twice, and never to animate. I find it kind of difficult to use since I'm not used to it, but I've seen people make AMAZING works of art with it :)

GIMP does support layers, but it doesn't move so well with them, paint can have some cool little tricks with transparent things and if you can figure it out moving body parts is kinda less difficult ^^"

I've seen amazing things too but yeah, I don't have a tablet anymore, so I don't think I can really do anything better than draw cats ;-;
:meow: Your stuff is amazing too :3 I haven't seen many people who can even draw or animate like that haha.
Good talking to you ^^" sorry about the pestering heh.

Oh dear, that sounds inconvenient. D: Have you tried many other art programs? You may have better luck using another one.

Oh no, I'm sorry! D: Well if it helps you feel better, it's entirely possible to make awesome art with just a mouse, too! These are some pictures I drew some years back before I got my first tablet, and I'm still pretty pleased with them: [link] [link] [link] so if my incompetent ass can do it, you can too! And if that isn't enough, here's a video of a Japanese Fisherman telling you to not give up: [link]

But thank you! Don't worry about it; I enjoy talking to my watchers :)
