Welcome to the RPG Maker Web Pixel/Graphics Academy!
What is it?
What is it?
- The graphics academy will provide instruction and encouragement for RPG Maker Web users who want to begin creating their own graphical resources. We will cover a variety of types and styles—with an initial focus on pixel art and sprites that will move to cover subjects as digital painting, building tilesets, and creating animations.
- To teach users the knowledge and skills to create their own graphical resources
- To strengthen the community by encouraging users to release original graphical content
- To diversify the games produced by the community by empowering users to create unique graphics for their own games
- To teach and encourage users to look at graphics with a critical eye and provide constructive and valuable feedback
- Weekly or Bi-weekly challenges will be posted by Thalzon or myself (needles / amanda), each one complemented by a relevant small tutorial/lesson
- Challenges will range from small activities to the creation of full resources; depending on the associated lesson
- Challenges will be posted in an order that presents a learning curve; new challenges will build off of knowledge presented in previous ones
- Challenges will not “close” or “end”; new users are encouraged to begin from the first challenge at any time
- No deadlines; no prerequisites to progress. Any user may participate in any challenge at any time
- There will be no “pass or fail”, no “winners or losers”; every participant will receive constructive criticism on his or her entries
- Participants should expect to receive criticism! Do not take harsh words personally—use the knowledge to improve your skills. It is intended to help and teach!
- The reward for participation in any challenge will be honest and encouraging criticism of the entry
- All criticism will be made public so that users can learn from each other and build off of each other
- Entries can and will be edited by others in order to illustrate suggestions for improvement. Do not watermark any entries
- Anybody can provide critique—and is encouraged to do so. Critique your fellow participants’ entries; looking at the work of others with a critical eye will help improve your own work.
