Livin' in the 80s by tjhiphop Livin' in the 80s by tjhiphop
:bulletblue: Ah, the 80s, what a glorious Utopia it was! Video Games and music was as good as it ever was. While I wasn't born in the 80s per se, I can certainly live it as if I was!

:bulletblue: This is my second shot at a deviantWEAR competition in the 5 weeks or so I've been here. Unfortunately my Cute Monster didn't make it through but I've put a lot of thought and effort into this!

:bulletblue: PLEASE VOTE OR FAVE MY DESIGN! All you have to do is click the "I'd wear this" button right below the Fave button. It would make my day and I would love you forever :heart:

:bulletred: Revision 1 [05/04/12]: Changes to the back design, addition of black hoodie, omission of white one and general tidy up of presentation around it.

:bulletblue: Thanks in advance for any votes :3

YES! MY DESIGN MADE IT INTO THE SEMI-FINALS! THANKS YOU GUYS, TO EVERYONE WHO FAVED AND VOTED FOR THIS!

No actually xD
It was just mainly because of the colour limit. You learn something new ever day though and I now know what cga is.

Damn, I want a hoodie like that. The 80s definitely had the best music.

Aloha tjhiphop!
Very nice design, love the colors.
Only thing i would have left out is "Livin in the 80s".
But that is because i was build in 1973 and its making me feel kinda old.
Jurassic almost, lol!

Thanks, for the comment.
Unfortunately, the quote is what makes the design really xD
If it makes you feel any older, I can barely remember the 90s let alone the 80s >.>

Nice idea, bro! Very 80's and very original.

Two things: maybe decrease the tracking of the text a bit, bring the radio and cassette player a bit closer together, and line the pixels up a bit better. But that's all the criticism I have! Good work!

I too wish to have experienced a little 80's life, it's surreal how much more modern we've all become in the short interval of time since then, makes even the young and restless nostalgic!
a few minimal critiques - There seems to be too much crammed into such a small space, the eye does not know where to look first, despite all the visuals being enchanting as they are
-the guitar could possibly have been a little more smoothed in its curvature, but believe me, I know how incredibly hard it is to do that when you are working with pixeldesigns, so frustrating.

Besides that, I love this, and might i add - fantastic color palette. :))

Yes, it is crazy but I suppose it's nice to live in this high-tech age. Even if it'd be cool just to experience things back then.

As for the critiques, you make a fair point about it being cramped, but I felt there wasn't a lot of space to work with on the front, considering the width of what I wanted to do and the fact I didn't want to put it on the back. I've also had a few comments on the guitar and I guess they're fair, it was frustrating to get it just so and I did the best I could but it could be improved a tad I'll grant you that. I'll certainly improve for next time. Thank you though for the critique.

Heh >.> I didn't think it was THAT bad, I mean, it was tricky but I thought I pulled it off okay. But I am very inexperienced with this so I should take note of other people's opinions for next time. Thank you for the vote though.

Voted! Very nice, very detailed! The color scheme is really cute and it's an eye candy! There are a few pixels I would replace (like on the left side of the guitar) but it looks lovely and feels very playful! Well done!

I really appreciate the feedback, this is basically my first attempt at original sprite art and getting the guitar right was a tad tricky. It seemed to look fine zoomed in that far so I kept it but I understand where you're coming from. Thanks for the vote though! I tried to keep it as eye-catching as possible.

Greenpuffle Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012
Ah, it's really good for a first attempt.
Yeah, spriting is quite tricky, a single pixel makes a big difference. It definitely requires a lot of patience. >w<

You're welcome! :)

It does doesn't it ;__; I often find it looks better when working with bigger pixels. But I'm currently practising with a 1:1 ratio so hopefully that'll look good!
