Okay I had some more free time on my hands and made these

1.) Dont make each time a new thread.

2.) Nice.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

1) I made a new thread because I wanted to separate the halo stuff from the WWII...I don't think that that's a big deal, or even worth noting for that matter.

2) Thanks

1) It's still pixel art and it's still yours. Keep it in the same topic next time

2) Looks cool

3) Stop backseat moderating
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

I have a quick question.

What is the purpose of pixel art aside from modding a game or doing sprite stuff?
I mean when Espadon makes an epic painty thing that's pretty cool but these little things aren't very appealing to me.

Eh stuff you do is mainly either funny or with squids, both of which are good (except for mods, which I don't really use anyways).

What I don't get is why so many people spend so long drawing 20x50 guns.

Edit: gah nvm all that I sound like an ass.

-I think you're missing some detail in the shapes, particularly in the pistols (Magnums, if i'm not mistaken), I usually push the weapon size to it's limit (66x19) for the sake of detail, but that's just me

-Sword thingies are too dark around the edges, and I would improvise on the black outline for the blades

Nice beamrifle! That gun is pretty hard to sprite due to its shape and details, but you did a damn fine job.

The energy sword looks bad with the black outline along the blade. Keep the outline on the handle, but change the outline on the blade to white or other or remove it completely. The black outline messes up the idea of the blade being made out of energy than plastic like it looks like now.

Its another form of art. Pixel art is like a drawing or painting when compared to other form of art.

Personally, I make use of the pixel work I make because making it just as an art piece doesnt feel like the work I've done is any good or it feels like its a single use product that loses its appeal right away and becomes useless, obsolete.

Personally, the only real thing I like about Microsoft is the pixel art they used for the wallpapers and icon sets for the early versions of windows, before they went with cheap glowy effects for win xp+. As numgun mentioned, pixel art truly is a real form of "art."

Mmk, a lot of comments to reply to so....

Now Espadon, Why would I do that, after all I'm one of the people that wants to see your mod  :P
Although I will say this, These guns can be used with soldat so I might make a simple weapons mod.

-I think you're missing some detail in the shapes, particularly in the pistols (Magnums, if i'm not mistaken), I usually push the weapon size to it's limit (66x19) for the sake of detail, but that's just me

Good points thanks, I'll get to work on some of those.

Thanks. And yeah the beamrifle is hard due to its shape (I had to use gimp to make it, MS paint just doesn't work very good with that kind of stuff)

Am i the only one who likes the bordered energy sword?

Also, can you explain me why always 2 pictures of the same weapon?

I add a shadow to one of the weapons, because it makes the weapon look more 3d'ish.

*EDIT* First post updated

*EDIT* 2nd Update

*EDIT* 3rd Update (Note that the HMG isn't finished)

Damn, this stuff looks much better than Espadon's. Keep it up! That carbine is so sexy. : O

EDIT: I just noticed you tweaked the energy blade, now its totally beatiful and looks just like it should.
