Often the word dither or dithering is mentioned in relation to PixelArt. So what is dithering?
Dithering is the hand laying of individual pixels in either an organized pattern or random scattering, in order to create a texture and the appearance of a much higher color count than may actually be present in the piece of PixelArt.
Here is an example of some Dithering Styles. I have used works from ensellitis, thUg-inc and myself ShoneGold to help illustrate some of the styles used by the Pixel Artists.
In order to do our bit to support AIDSWalk 2007 shonegold.deviantart.com/journ… about everyone has a practice at dithering a red ribbon now that you are all familiar with how it looks and a few of the styles you can use?
Here is a basic template you can download and use, or you may wish to make your own ribbon. Lets see how good you all are at dithering. If you send me a PM note with a link to your work, I will feature all your dithered red ribbons in a future Journal.
