isometric background tutorial by MenInASuitcase isometric background tutorial by MenInASuitcase
New tutorial done :phew: so this one is about how to make a isometric pixelart background :)
i tried to make it easy as possible and with less text as possible and i think we learn easier by seeing how to do than reading wall of text :p
anyway i'm sorry if there are some grammar fail on english :faint: i hope it will help some people, and will also make more people want to do isometric stuff :) for exemple emoticon project with isometric background ;)
anyway if some of you guys try this tutorial i would love to see what you've done :highfive:

Hello, I am very new to pixel art, this tutorial looks great!! I have a silly question: what is the best program to use for creating pixel art? what software do you use? Should I use illustrator? thank you.

Thank you so much for this! See, I'm trying to do the artwork for a game that I'm making with a friend, and as usual, my pixelart is so cruddy it's untrue. But this should help me do some work on the background!

Will do. It might not be finished until a long way away though. I had to get someone else to do the sprites, because I was failing so badly at drawing them.

Awesome. I might give it a go and use it for my EMTC entry :dummy:
BTW, how did you make this a JPG file without making the pixels all blurry? :dummy:

:iconmeninasuitcase:
MenInASuitcase Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011
what would the pixel get blurry:? you mean maybe on the zoomed pixel one? if yes i just took screenshot and paste them on the tutorial PSD file xD

I meant that usually when files are saved as JPG the picture gets blurry and filled with crap, and yours isn't :nod:

save it as PNG
It works better then JPG and doesn't murder the pixels XD it can also handle transparencies

So simple yet so mind-blowing. Lol. I tend to think in curves more than angles.

P.S. Grammar nag: You wrote "buy" instead of "by" in the first sentence.

I love your art. I am designing a pixel art based PC game title currently titled Calamity Game Engine. Here is my link to my facebook page for the the game. I am seeking out pixel artist to help out. The game will allow artist to keep submitting pixel art to be used inside the game. The down fall at the moment is getting the base art needed to start letting players design their own maps. I am looking for a serious pixel artist to be my lead artist. If your interested here is url to my game [link]
and you can email me at williamtarends@hotmail.com. I love your tutorials if I wasn't super busy programming the game I would try to create my own pixel art great work! You work with the 2:1 pixel ratio which is exactly the same as my game. I would be honored to meet you and give you a personal tour of my project via desktop sharing. I made this deviant art account just to contact you. I have a .com already but its under development so refer to the facebook page till then.

hello :)
i first want to thank you alot for liking my art
and i feel such sorry because i hardly think i could have time
to help on your project this year, school doesn't take to much
of my time, but unfortunatly i don't have money enough to pay
an appartement near my school so i have to do 5hours of
transport everyday, and every time i go back home i don't really feel
like doing anything, i did take a look at your project and it has potential
i know i can't help alot but if you want i can maybe try to show you some
other good pixelartist i know, i can also pimp your project here on deviantart
and maybe there will have some person interested in helping you more than i can do.
I also am a programmer and this is also why i like your project since i know pretty well
POO in PHP and i really love web programming :)
So if you are interested for the few help i can give :aww: then let me know, and well when
your project will be in beta test or finish i also would love to try it :)

That would be great. Your the first artist I have approached. Could I link to your tutorials so players who want to create for calamity can get more familiar with pixel art and its creation. Your tutorials really hit home on the 2:1 ratio and also are easy to follow. Great work. Very soon I'm going to be posting on more pixel art sites like pixel joint and pixel dam in search of artist. Any thing you can do to help me would greatly appreciated. Don't you also have free emoticons, I would be honored to even to get a small bit of art to add cause it all will become part of the game easily. Thanks for your time and like my facebook page if you would =). Forward any artist friends to me if you like also. Great work here and keep it up. Also all your animated stuff is so seamless and loops perfect, what software do you use mainly? My current pixel artist friend mainly works in paint and I work in fireworks and photoshop. I am currently thinking of opening the game world to artist only as a beta soon so they can have their stuff ready for the launch of game, I'll keep you posted or follow my facebook page. Have a good day. William Arends.
