[icon practice] Gina by PlatinaSi [icon practice] Gina by PlatinaSi
Wooo guys I'm still alive-- barely living through this homework/schoolwork/exam study hell :iconsobbplz:

I just had this sudden inspiration+impulse to experiment with a new pixel icon style with Gina since I like to make icon families for RP groups I'm in ;7; the background turned out really nicely and I'm sorta thinking about making a few icon gifts for Illegibilus peeps once my midterms are over //v// tried changing the background color to the other Hogwarts Houses' signature colors just to see how it might look for other characters and it looked pretty nice to me eheheh *7* I know I know I still have the pixel doll requests left to do but yoloooooooo I actually had a super adorable Eun icon gifted to me by Izuneko yesterday but then I end up creating this thing today-- I'm so gomen Izuuuu ;;A;; I'll change my icon back to your lovely gift sometime haha// ;v;

I saw that you changed icons a couple of times recently. They are both quite adorable though I must say ^^ And it looks like you did well on applying the theme in this one too. =3

♛ >> first I was all "yee Platina did another icon!"
and then "IT HAS SPARKLES HAHAH  I LOVE IT EVEN MORE"
sparkles make everything better
:iconcolorfulsparklesplz::iconfabulousplz::iconcolorfulsparklesplz:

that aside, I love how you've improved and learned to be more diverse color-wise
+ smoother animations and how it's totally recognizable as your style !

Ahaha yissss sparkles are win *v* I've just recently started to appreciate the mAGIC OF SPARKLESSSSSS :icondivaplz:

Ahh thank you so much! It's always such an honor to receive such compliments from a pixel pro like you //v//
I've definitely gotten better at the colors- trying to use diverse colors while keeping the file size small is pretty hard but I think I've got the hang of it now o v o
If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you opinion on the eyes- do you think they look okay? I personally like the dot-eyes that I usually use for my chibis because it's my distinctive art style + there are too many anime eyed chibi icons out there, but then perhaps these dot-eyes might look a bit too plain compared to regular anime eyes? I'm in a dilemma |D

♛ >> I am delighted that your eyes have been opened, my friend HAHAHA//
haha i'm still learning- and trying to find my style tho otl

haha I know what you mean- especially if there's quite a lot of animation
pixel art is a good way to practice how colors work with each other though * v *
though pixel purists would usually use just around 4-16 colors on small things like these- it's really hard to emulate lD

ahh maybe you could keep your dot eyes while adding more AA/eye shine to make it seem more detailed ?
like no. 3 here-
but then again, if your eye style really doesn't make use of eye shines- go with your style, it's yours, unique.

I HAVE REACHED THE STATE OF ULTIMATE EYE-OPENING. :iconzoominplz:
Shhhh you have your own style already *v* I bet lots of people can tell if someone's icon was made by you! Yours are totally one-of-a-kind~

I agree, pixel art is a nice medium for quick but spiffy art o v o it's a lot less demanding than regular illustrations/paintings but two times the fun and also has that little rewarding feeling when you see the itty bitty pixel animations run smoothly on its deviation page or as someone's icon XD
I KNOW WHOA I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I'D LIVE WITH USING ONLY 4~16 COLORS D8

Aaaaaaah thank you so much! I actually really like number 2- it keeps the shape of my dot-eye style while adding color to the eyes, giving room for more diversity when doing multiple characters *v* That anti-aliased one looks pretty nice as well, I can tell it's your style o v o I'm still a little awkward with putting slight shading around the eyes and mouth in my pixel icons though, so perhaps I shall go with the flat(?)  shading style before moving onto more detailed styles?
Thank you again for the help, I appreciate it lots ///v/// definitely gonna tweak the icon base according to your tips! :heart: :iconletmehugyouplz:

Haha I just kept them as dot-eyes because I tried the large anime style eyes and they turned out a bit odd ;v; plus they're easier to animate |D but I should practice regular shiny eyes for future icon styles I guess o v o
