The Knight [Hollow knight]

I tried making the Knight from hollow knight and failed miserably. I still haven’t finished, I will make improvements later one and finish it. Reference I used:

the shapes arent well defined, the cape is over detailed compared to the rest, however i think the biggest improvement you can make here is your colors, see in the image the light is tintet a magenta/purple and the shadows on him arent as harsh, try learning a bit more about pixelart shading and hue shifting, if you are able to apply those it will improve the artwork dramatically

here are some learning resources:
Pixel Joint Forum: The Pixel Art Tutorial
Pixel Joint Forum: COLORING “I dont get it”

i look foward to seeing your art improving :slight_smile:


Thanks, I will make sure to follow the resources!

Hello, its been a while! I am back after a lot of stuff happened. Including moving to an entire different state (US), finally settled and having a space for my own, and not being motivated or passionate enough about doing art, I have been doing slowly but surely some progress on the hollow knight. I plan to finish it on the next 2 weeks or so!

Here it is so far! I still need a lot improving on the lower part of the body, and the cape is still WIP but I like the overall shape it has. After I am done with the main structure and I am happy with it, I will continue with the colors. That’s all for now!
