  1. We are closing the ArtByte Forum

    That's a real shame, I had a good time here. But I understand and respect your decision, thanks for all the good art and discussions you hosted!
  2. hi everybody

    Hey Brian, welcome to the ArtByte community. Charcoal, huh? That's a beautiful tool, I'd love to see some of your art.
  3. Hollow Knight

    I recently started playing another game that really inspired me with its beautiful visuals and music - Hollow Knight. The game's visuals are powerful, with simple and recognizable character designs placed over soft dark colors. Most of the world is draped in blue: Cold colors like blue and green fill most of the environments, but the world of Hollow Knight is tormented by an infectious disease of some kind. The disease and creatures affected by it are always depicted with orange, so they stick out well in contrast: The game looks beautiful in fact, but I appreciate that it also communicates story and gameplay with its visuals this way (as the infected enemies are usually very dangerous to approach). And listen to this beautiful track from the soundtrack, evoking the feeling of a beautiful but nearly abandoned city: Have you come across any beautiful videogames lately?
  4. Hollow Knight

    I've played Cuphead, and yeah, it's excellent. In terms of fighting games, Skullgirls has some really beautiful animation too.
  5. Hollow Knight

    Heck yeah, Braid is a real classic. One of the original 'indie darlings' as they say, with some beautiful licensed music by Shira Kammen. And the painterly visuals are really quite stunning.
  6. Snakehead drawing

    Very nice work! I don't see a lot of art depicting a front view of a snake, probably because the silhouette is hard to communicate, but you've done a stellar job!
  7. Donkey Face

    Very beautiful and lifelike. It's interesting, but you don't see a lot of people paint donkeys - people prefer animals like horses, that have played a greater role in western civilization. Thanks for giving this underappreciated animal some time in the spotlight.
  8. Painting a fish

    Ooh, that's an amazing drawing! And thank you once again for including the process from sketch to final piece as well. What species of fish is that?
  9. Hello, people.

    Hey there, CX. Welcome to the ArtByte community. That's a lovely painting.
  10. Fabian Perez | Abstract Figurative

    What a beautiful, painterly style! I appreciate paintings that are still a bit "rough," where you can still clearly see it is a painting. Photorealism is pretty boring to me. I get a really strong 'noir' story feeling from these painting, especially the first few.
  11. Hello! I am a musician.

    Hey there, and welcome to the community! So... should I call you 'modesty' or 'modeP'?
  12. 'Jelly Jellies' Released At Last!

    Hey, everyone! Some weeks ago, I shared the trailer for Jelly Jellies, a mobile game project I animated for. The game has finally been released globally, so if you were hyped to save the ocean in this exciting match 3 adventure, you can finally dive right in (if you'll excuse the pun). The game is free (although I will be transparent like a jellyfish and note that there are in-app purchases) and can be played on both Android and iPhone. You can find the Android version here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.primalstudios.jellyjellies And you can find the iOS version here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/jelly-jellies/id1340396816 Can you save the ocean from the evil jellyfish? We're a small team, so feedback is appreciated! And if you happen to like it, it would mean the world to us if you shared the game with your friends and maybe even posted a review.
  13. Bright day is here

    I think the best approach is always cautious optimism. I've said this before, but I don't expect any cryptos to shoot straight for the moon within just a few days, but I do expect ABY to get better this summer. Don't you think it'll come back around by the end of September, hj27?
  14. My latest digital portrait

    That painting is extremely beautiful, Paloma! I appreciate how the detail is concentrated in the face and decreases as you look to other parts of work; you've done a good job establishing a focal point.
  15. 'Jelly Jellies' Released At Last!

    Sorry! I'll keep you updated. There is a Facebook version, but it takes a long time to load, so we're still optimizing that. _ If people who tried the game had some problems, we have updated the game a lot and will continue to do so. Any new feedback would really help!
  16. Hi everyone, cartoonist here

    Hey, Pencilforge, it's good to see you! Welcome to the ArtByte forum. You've made some really lovely art, and I can see we share some of the same taste in media - I'm seeing some great art based on Shovel Knight and Chrono Trigger, for example. It'd help the staff out if you put your ArtByte wallet address in your profile's 'about me' section and made a post about your work in the artist listing subforums as well.
  17. Hello, Photomanipulator here

    Hey, Lepotanski! Welcome to the ArtByte community, it's nice to have you here. Remember to put your ArtByte wallet address in your 'about me' section.
  18. Hellooooo :)

    Hey there, iCArtzz! Welcome back to the community. Do you have a post in the appropriate artist listing subforum yet? I'm not sure if I've seen your work, but I would love to see it.
  19. 'Jelly Jellies' Released At Last!

    That might just be a bit too old. Sorry! We'll continue improving compatibility, so stay tuned. Do you have any feedback so we can improve the game further?
  20. Hi! New to Artbyte.

    Hello Paloma, welcome to the ArtByte community. You've made some truly lovely artwork, I just love the lighting in your Halloween 2017 painting. I hope you can join in on the many fun conversations and get a lot out of ArtByte.
  21. I was thinking about Internet classics; artwork that is still very recent on a world scale but considered ancient by 'Internet standards.' One of the things from the 'old days' of the Internet that inspired me a lot was the stop motion video '8-Bit Trip': I've always loved stop motion in classic children's series like Postman Pat, and in Aardman Studios' movies, so it was very special to me to see a videogame focused stop motion animation like this. What are some 'Internet classics' that really inspired you back in the day?
  22. Summertime

    That's how my summer is looking right now. I hope I can get a couple of days to myself as well.
  23. Summertime

    Hey, everyone! For those of us on the Northern Hemisphere, we're at the heart of summer. As a freelancer, I don't get traditional vacations (I made my own schedule after all), but I do intend to take a few days to recharge and enjoy the sunshine. That got me thinking: How do you other artists enjoy the summer days? Do you just continue to work as normal? Do you take a few days to rest, or a few days to work on your personal projects or skills? I'd like to know how you're going to use this summer to your advantage as an artist. (In retrospect, this post might've been better suited to the 'artist's life' board, but I guess it fits here too)
  24. Btc makes new ATH(all time high)

    We're climbing back up, but we reached a low point this year. I think cautious optimism is the best approach here, so I will say that it won't reach an all time high, but it will regain a lot of its former value.
  25. Back Again!

    Welcome back Aziz! I hope you can join in on all the good conversations.
