More pixels and thinking.

Currently I'm more into high res for character but it still looks stiff. Maybe after motion it will be better? Might check it later.
Come fuckboys!
Things that annoy me so far in pixel art is how important and ground breaking each point is. Color palettes and how I suck at limiting color usage.
Also, it is very time consuming hobby. I can spend 2 hours doing 32x64 pixel piece! But still, it's very refreshing compared to regular drawings I did, which caused some kind of trauma and redoing all the lines all the time, haha!



This little speaker is great,
outdoor sound system!
Yesterday's picnic on the beach transformed into little campfire party for three.

Looks like spot nearby is both: rich in driftwood, and deserted enough to enjoy simple pleasures of roasted sausages and home made apple wine/cider.

Despite afternoon warmth, evening was rather cold.

Steadily setting sun created gorgeous scenery.
Landscapes filled with reds, yellows and pink sky with tint of darker purple on the horizon reflected in shimmering yet calm sea. Later on, warmth and blaze from fire lit our surroundings while we enjoyed well cooked meal.

Sadly, we lost one brave piece of sausage to the fire... those, who aren't among us anymore probably wanted to share the joy and took their piece themselves ;)

Overall, I can clearly say that the campfire season is finally on and joyous, outdoor nights with friends will be more frequent from now on!

From this warm evening...

...to this cold dawn.

So let's start over, yet another time.

After using facebook for few years now I'm totally fed up with it.
I found myself in a situation where not only had heavy filtering of the content, but I'd rather unsubscribe from most of the people on my "friend" list. So what's the point anyways? Thus I'm done with it.
First thing that hit me was that a really heavy load came off from me. For no real reason, but it made me feel easy.
Secondly reclaimed a lot of time. Really.
That one (few, or more) hours really changes day.

It encourages me that my friend did the same recently for quite same reasons and now I'm trying to persuade another to do the same. Sure, it's not an easy thing when you got so many real friends actually connected to it but on the other hand, real friends can always call or write you (and there are plenty of alternative ways to communicate too).

Since last early 2016 I've been using Slack and recently joined few communities on Discord (add me@ keik#3319 :P) so there's plenty of people to talk with.
So yes, basically this will be my void to share thoughts, rants and other things. Despite having probably 0 followers now since most people left blogging in the dark, this is one place I am always coming back and forth.

That said... what's more I might share here?

Well, long story short got accepted to fine art academy and finally dropped out after 3 years. Partially wasted and partially very important years... Hadn't wrote about it already? Anyways!

Bough Aseprite, very useful tool for pixel art, sprite and animation and joined pixel art oriented community. Boy, those people are strict! But maybe that's why there's "meme and shitposting" separate channel and is almost deserted?  And most people are either total rookies or veterans in the game-dev and industry with most on the latter side. You really feel respect when you see all those amazing artworks, especially when it's animated with multiple objects. I'm totally in awe for those and it's real hobby for me now. A hobby which I was lacking for a seriously long time.

And now excuse me, I got zootopia themed pixel daily challenge to be done!

Simple flower I did yesterday.
