Art Nouveau Pixel -- Angel by Hardrockangel Art Nouveau Pixel -- Angel by Hardrockangel
I was inspired by *okyi's beautiful pixel-dolls to try and push myself to make a great piece of pixel-work that I can be proud of.
While I think I managed to make a great piece, I also felt like it could use a little "oomph", a little extra, which is why I also ended up animating it.

Personally, I'm really proud of this piece. I managed to make the Art Nouveau-border work for the piece and I think this is my best pixel of Angel as of yet.
I hope you like it! <3

Je suis trop pauvre pour te demander une commission T_T ! Autrement j'aurais bien voulu un pixel art mignon comme celui-ci :( *pleure dans son coin* xD

Aaah, thank you very much! ; u ;

I'm currently working on the second one, as I'm going to make one like this for all my characters.
Not sure if I'm a pixel-addict or just plain mental. :'D

If it starts interfering with your sleep, it may be time to tone it down. :giggle:

Aaah, thank you very much! I'm thinking of doing one like this for every character of mine, but with a different animation. :la:

Good work!

And cute too. But I'm not sure about the animation of the legs, since the movement ends abruptly below the knees. :noes:

Ah, yeah. Fair point!
Someone I talked to said I should try to animate the knees bending instead of just the legs shortening, so I tried that. I really had no clue what to do with the lower-legs and it shows. D:

Thank you for pointing that out!

You can do somthing similar to what you did to the upper legs.

Hrm, but I don't think the movement would still make sense, then. If I move them inwards even more, she would look like she's toppling.

I do get that there should be some animation though. Hrnn, this'll be a tough one. :confused:

Hmmm, then try to make the movement in front of a mirror, that could help!
