Liron and Svarik - bricked love by SmilingOfTheHealer Liron and Svarik - bricked love by SmilingOfTheHealer
New type of icon couples, of my OC Liron, and my friend's :iconmirachravaia:s OC Svarik :love:


As a base of those two, I used my previous type of icons:



I made plzs:

:iconlironblplz::iconsvarikblplz: or, in other order: :iconsvarikblplz: :iconlironblplz:

---
They can be used as dividers with extra icon in middle:
:iconlironblplz::iconshheartsplz::iconshheartsplz::iconshheartsplz::iconshheartsplz::iconshheartsplz::iconsvarikblplz:




I apologize to all my commissioners for working on this, instead of commissions.. But I just have to do something new, from time to time, otherwise, I could die from too much repeating of a pattern, hhee :D

No matter how much I love your current icon that's there for as long as I remember, I can't say seeing Svarik on its place wouldn't be adorable :iconlainloveplz:
If you decide to change yours icon with Svarik, I can change mine with Liron's part, so we can go in pair, if not, it's okay, I'm sure in future my pixel art will get cool enough that, at one point, you won't be able to resist ,heheh :D

P.S. As a little heads-up, I'll be working on commissions for some time from now in following time, but, as soon as I get some more time, I'll make Conrad in this icon type, so I could have both, and Liron, and Conrad, to pair them up beside Svarik. It's not like Conrad didn't deserve his own icon, it just seemed somehow right to do Liron with Svarik first, as they both have so pretty warm colored design :iconlaloveplz:

P.P.S. Completely OOC, what do you think of my pixeling skills? I think they managed to improve quite a bit in last time, but still, I would really like to hear someone else's opinion :iconcookieforyouplz:

I have a new icooooooooooooooooooooon! :aww:

But about your pixelling skills, I don't think I'm the right person to judge. It's all magic to me, and I have no idea how those pixels are made. I just find them adorable :iconifeelfluffyplz:

:D Oh, what a coincidence, I have new icon tooooooooo, hehe! :iconlovesplatplz:

And, awwwwww, thanksies :icondragonshyplz:
As for how they are made,they are, as you know, size of 50x50 pixels, so with me, it's, basically, doing them pixel by pixel in Photoshop, and then animating outcome in Gimp ;)

So you just use the brush at size 1 and 100% opacity? I just can't imagine the process, lol...

Process usually wary - some icons need only pen,some need tiny airbrush as well - I use lot of airbrush in my Wind Blowing icons. The hardest part of pixeling is making a base, figuring out lines and what you want from icon. Many of it goes like in drawing - figuring out lines, circles, shapes, proportions.. There are lot icons on dA and wider, so there is bunch of inspiration, and there are bunch of tutorials to learn from, so I had wide space to learn from. I usually am sketching, and then, on solidly finished lines, I am adding colors, and rearrange and recolor pixels until I am content. Then, at end,I only make background transparent, and voila! :D
But, once I already have base, like in heart smiled commissions, where I have done bunch of those commissions, I just starts to color over already finished one, and it pretty much looks like this: [link]
It usually, with those heart smiled type, takes me couple hours, but sometimes, if I have trouble with design, it might take even ten, fifteen hours. I usually don't do everything in one day, I let it stalk down. Often even one pixel makes a lot difference, and I try to benefit from each one, and be better with each new try ;)
