Was kinda craving sweets, but there was nothing in the house to satisfy my sweet tooth TwT And we were watching the Food Network and there was this show about sweets. I saw this dessert and I thought to myself that I'd try to pixel something like it. So, here is the result There were many points when I felt like giving up, but I'm glad that I didn't. But man, did it take forever to make that cake And I made and re-made those strawberries inside the cake over and over. And the ones on top...and the shading on whipped cream. Lol! After the dessert was finally done, I decided to add some emotes fawning over the amazing awesomeness that was waiting to be eaten
Any tips and critiques are welcome! I'm not a pro at pixel art like this & would love feedback! Thanks to `admx for his help when I showed him in stash
EDIT: Added detail to the strawberries on top & changed shading on the whipped cream. Thanks =Siaandra
Made With: MS Paint & pixlr.com (for transparency) Time: About Three Hours
EDIT 10-10-2012: Oh wow! A Daily Deviation! Thank you so, so much =IceXDragon for suggesting it and ^ChaosEmeraldHunter for featuring it! This really made my day
I want to start by saying I really love how you shaded the emotes, and their expressions are perfect (As, I think if I was so tiny and saw THAT big of a strawberry, I'd faint ). I really love the details you've put into the cut strawberries, as well as the ones on top of the cake it's self, and I like how the jello stuff () on top is all shiny. The only things that I could recommend, would be to possibly put a saturated, kinda bright orange dot under each of the seeds on the strawberry, to give it a shiny feel. Possibly the colour 17, 240, 139, or even a bit brighter Also, it might look a bit better if the cream was shaded a bit more, and had a little more depth. For a first pixel food though, this is stunning.
O M jiggles. I love how it is created and how they both are drooling for the strawberry short cake, it makes it more realistic. I enjoy how it is something nobody else will think of, it has never been made yet. It hit me like a bullet right away, and I knew I liked it from the start. It has beautiful and vibrant colors and realistic actions. I would recommend this to use in chatrooms or on userpages. It is the best emoticon and my favorite emoticon I have ever seen yet. Top notch! Keep up the good work!
