My first works (32x32)

Hello! Yesterday I just started the 2d pixel art course on Udemy and I’ve tried my hand on my first game icons :grin: I tried some icons for a game about necromancers:

beak_64
blood_chalice_64
hook_64
necronomicon_64
scalpel_64

I’m still working on the first icon (should be a freshly extracted avian beak), but I feel pretty satisfied with the other ones!

plume_fire_64
fire_row_64
fireball_64

This is my take on the challenge on lesson 18, tried to play around with a low opacity brush to apply a glow. Still not sure about the row of fire, though…

What do you guys think? Any advice?

Maybe the blue in the flame is too much (dark blueish)?

you mean the single flame? I just noticed that, I tweaked it a little and faded some of the glow to make it more dynamic
fires_plume_64_b

These look great! Would the book benefit from a small bit of color around the edges or in the center?

hmmm it IS a bit monochrome… maybe some shading or some lighter stains, I’ll look into it

Still think this is really great for a start!

went for a leather-y pattern, some faded stains and tweaked the shadows in regards to the source of light. Skull’s a bit shiny now
necronomicon_leather

thank you for the kind words anyways, I really enjoyed doing these!
