Please refer to this thread before requesting help finding a link or choosing a program, because chances are your answer is on this thread.

Here is a collection of various links that will probably come in handy from time to time.
If you are willing to share anything, don't hesitate and post it here (do not chitchat on this thread if you have nothing to contribute though), but remember, illegal software or similar items are strictly forbidden.

If there are any errors or anything that needs to be fixed, feel free to drop me a PM.

Great Work Jun :y:,
I just added a collection with the Pixelation Highlights right at the top, because it's basically what makes our community.
I felt like it would add a lot, hope you are ok with it.

In all modesty, I'd like to recommend my free, little pixel tool for iPhone and ipad...

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll note it down.
I'll only put up resources that the I personally or the community have tried and found useful.
I'm sorry, we can't put up every app out there, gotta keep it clean  :y: :)

The original thread is archived, or completely deleted ? I know some software / links (arguably not notable enough to be in the "best of" list) were mentioned there, and now I don't know how to search them.

It's archived. I still have to go through the thread looking for more links, I'm just incredibly busy these days.

I just made this: Automated file-history tracker for *nix (https://github.com/0ion9/filehistory) after a brief discussion in PJ chat. It watches files and automatically tracks their revisions, in a 'plain directory containing numbered copies of file' format (meaning, in the case of pixel art, you can look through history easily using an ordinary image viewer)

PDF copy of "Charles Bargue Drawing Course", which has some good info on how drawing was taught in the 19th century.

https://archive.org/details/CharlesBargueDrawingCourse (https://archive.org/details/CharlesBargueDrawingCourse)

High resolution copies of the plates can be found here, for anyone who wants to improve their drawing accuracy by doing some Bargue drawings.

Art books in the public domain. (http://www.drawingbooks.org/)
Lowres copies. Bridgman is here.
CSDb (https://csdb.dk/)
Harold Speed - The Practice & Science of Drawing. (http://www.gutenberg.org/zipcat2.php/14264/14264-h/14264-h.htm)
Dated, LOTTA text, but great drawings intermittently.
Anatomy Studies Demo (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php/1432-Anatomy-Studies-Demo-quot-Figure-Studies-quot)
^Most of the links are broken. Archived here (https://web.archive.org/web/20121019110202/http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?1432-Anatomy-Studies-Demo-quot-Figure-Studies-quot)

Tho this topic isn't updated anymore, better formats exist, and there's zilch demand...I miss it man, so I'll give it two cents. Might be more as I clear out old bookmarks.

BTW, might want to add the Discord link to OP, unless I'm not seeing it.

EDIT: added a couple more old gems. All art there, no tech or game dev yet. I don't think the caliber is high enough for the thread, it's stuff you can search, but they're worth a look. May update, but I don't want to spam this thread.

I don't see Hexels here https://marmoset.co/hexels/ (https://marmoset.co/hexels/)

It seems a great tool.

I want to share two programs, for me very nice, to do pixel art in any Android mobile.

Pixel Studio https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.PixelStudio

Pixly https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.meltinglogic.pixly

Both free or paid.

Very nice to pixel in the bed.  :lol: :lol: :lol:
