Tutorial: Pixel Base Creation by unlikely-kisses Tutorial: Pixel Base Creation by unlikely-kisses
Over and over and over again I've been asked to make a base-making tutorial. I started with a hair tutorial from requests, this is my second tutorial on how I make bases.

This particular base was a remake, an upgrade (almost completely different line art) from an older base of mine called the Rosie Base of a woman lying on her stomach, propped up on her elbows, feet on the ground (mostly). It was awarded Base of the Month at two separate Pixel Forums, my first time recieving the award. (I also recieved another doll of the month award, another first that month, but that is a separate creation.) I called it rebase and decided to map my progress, since people wanted to see it.

Here you have my pallette and my technique, which looks much easier than it is.

Hope you enjoy it and find it of good use.

What kind of program are you using for this? My paint program doesn't have a shading option. How did you get to step 3?

select the skin tone you're using and make it slightly darker on the scale, then keep making it darker each step. Colour with those tones.

Do you use any specific programs to do the lineart? How do you do the lineart?

Sorry for my Qs, I'm just kinda curious.

Great tut, never seen a tut like this before ^_^
Is there a 'different tool' for dithering, or do you 'dither it all by yourself?
