Crepe's got the Cool Things, like pixel art and chiptunes

Postby CrappyBlueLuigi » 10 months ago

i've been writing music in chiptune form for, like, six years now. i'm going to college for music composition, and i'm pretty sure it's gonna be my "thing" and hopefully lead to a sustainable income of some sort.

i've put up a bunch of stuff on my soundcloud which i can't easily embed here, so i'm gonna drop a link in Big Text so it stands out a bit:

check out my compositions on my soundcloud (there are also some covers in there too)

and then i've also got a bandcamp page, where i've got collections of tracks on sale, including two albums, a single, and some small soundtracks i put together for some small indie games.

oh, and uh, i draw pixel art, too:

Image
ImageImage
Image
ImageImage
ImageImage

primarily character animation, though i've been trying out slightly-larger-scale stuff lately too.

i tend to go in-and-out of both art venues, spending a month or so only drawing pixel art or only writing music, so my workflow can be a bit sporadic. what i'm getting at is i have no idea what i'm going to end up posting next in this thread. maybe that's "exciting"???

oh right, this is a thread i have

Image
Image
this is a character designed by time2slime on twitter who pretty much everyone has been drawing so i decided to hop on that bandwagon

Image
Image
and yesterday was my friend ceebs' birthday so i drew one of their characters! their name is Brussels Sprout (i named them, incidentally) and they started off as a fusion between two of ceebs' other characters, shark chick and louise fiori, but they've been sorta broken off into their own thing now

i also made a process gif for this one, which i don't usually do because it never occurs to me to record the stages of progress when i'm making pixel art
Image
Image

the moral of the story is that i only find the motivation to make things when it's for others' enjoyment!

some sprites of some characters that my friends made! in order, they are black mage, white mage, and red knight, and they're sisters. they're actually nudists, all 3 of them (well ok only the first two of them are by choice), but the friend who designed them also gave them specific outfits for when they gotta be drawn with more clothes on. nudie sprites of them exist on my deviantart, but to be safe i won't link them here. though... it's just tiny pixel nudity. it's more cute than anything else

3-color sprites of some of my characters, made to be used as icons on their toyhou.se pages!

they are, from left to right:
william "blue" crapsman - cybil crapsman - catriona "riona" ribeiro - brea verne

i call 'em the broke college kids because (aside from blue and cybil being siblings) they all met each other in college and they're all struggling to get by while trying to enjoy life, very relatable

wow okay, here's a bunch of assorted stuff i forgot to post when i made it

Image
Image

my friend iso's character memen, made for art fight!

ImageImage
ImageImage

two more sonic sprites in the style of the sonic 26th anniversary art i did in june, both made for friends, though the rouge was a commission also

Image
Image

left: a self-portrait i did because i don't like my face sometimes and i was trying to get more comfortable with it by drawing it
right: a stylized self-portrait i did because i don't like my face sometimes, based on a drawing a friend did of me

Image
Image

lastly, here's more 3-color sprites of characters who i've made pages for on my toyhou.se!

1st row: other people living in the same city as the broke college kids
wallace vontavue - laurence "aura" decautiv sear - nora borealis
2nd row: characters i've been playing in tabletop rp games with friends
brosephanie svetson - osvan
3rd row: two characters i designed, like, five years ago and only just recently got around to fleshing out
amane ito & wanitaro

wow whatta long post

i've been posting a lot more pixel art in here than music, but that's just because... i've been in kind of a musical slump lately. i often go through patterns of making more music than art and making more art than music, so i've just been in the latter camp for a couple months now. i've been really happy with a lot of the art i've been making, though, which is nice!

thank you so much!! <3

well, sonic mania has once again gotten me in the Mania Mood™ to make some sprites of the good kids, so i did.

Image
Image

doubt i'll do much more with them; as much as i enjoy setting up big sprite sheet projects for myself, it's almost therapeutic to just make a bunch of idle character sprites

bonus: this thing i always do when i make a new set of sonic sprites where i compare it to older sets of sonic sprites i made to see how i've progressed/improved

Image

(no tails in the middle set because i never made a tails for that abandoned project)

she ditched 'em when she realized nobody else was wearing any! she didn't want to look out-of-place, y'know
and thank you!!!

okay... so like a week ago i did a twitter meme where, for every like the tweet got, i'd reply with an oc of mine with some small personality details attached. the tweet ended up getting more likes than i had ocs (i don't have that many ocs ok!!) and i ended up joking that the thwomp design i used in buttsmash villa counted as an oc on some level

so, uh, i made it an oc. the thwimp, also.

Image
Image
(three-color sprites i made for their toyhouse pages, just like my other ocs)

their names are thwalassa and althwaea (greek names only in this house) and at some point i'm going to, like, actually develop and do things with them, probably

other stuff, also:

i made more sonics because I Cannot Be Stopped

Image
Image

dr. eggbotnik, metal sonic, and the boys! those dudes!
tails, knux, & mighty all got some small tweaks too

and lastly i did a stream the other day where i pixelled a bunch of my friends' characters (and my fursona's in there because i wanted to draw her next to my friend wally's fursona)

Image
Image

in order for those keeping track at home:
-wally's fursona
-my fursona
-abb's character cameron
-jenny's d&d character ester
-kevin's unnamed pinkhaired cyborg sword lady character
-roz's character celethia
-nat's characters summer and luna
-ceebs's character amanita

hello i'm back already

sonic mania's data file has been blown wide open thanks to very specific unpacker programs, so immediately the first thing i do with this power is pull out one frame of sonic's sprites to use as reference for a sonic-mania-style edit

That's really good! looks totally in style. Makes me excited for a GIF or something you'd like to make with it.

thank you! i'd definitely like to put the effort in to make a full sheet for him, hopefully to the point of making a full sprite replacement mod viable. until then, though, i'm pointing myself toward more personal projects.

Image
Image

i've been feeling motivated to really make something out of the teeny sonic sprites i posted, so here's rolling animations for everyone! it's a start.

wow, music? it's been a while!

here's a really silly song:
bees in the house!

and here's a not very silly song:
Elegy of Open Hands

i'm very proud of the latter; it's been half-finished for ~three months, and i just finished it last night in a blaze of motivation. it goes places i didn't expect it to when i started writing it, which is a very nice feeling as a composer, hahaha

Elegy of Open hands is very good! The change mid-song had quite an impact on me.
