General Discussion / Retronator Pixel Art News
« on: September 02, 2017, 10:57:50 am »
I guess this is officially a series now, as I just released the second part of my YouTube show Retronator Pixel Art News.

There's a news item about Pixelation at the end as well. I hope you enjoy it!

General Discussion / Contemporary Pixel Art Games (2010 and on)
« on: July 30, 2017, 11:38:05 pm »
Hi everyone,

TL;DR: Can you think of your favorite pixel art games (release date about 2010 and later) and list them below? Voxel art and hybrids are very welcome as well.

I'm looking for a bit of help compiling a list of modern/contemporary/recent pixel art games, anything after 2010 (about the time when Sword & Sworcery came out and started a new wave of pixel art, but I'm interested in all styles, just that it's from this decade).

I've been featuring pixel art games on my blog almost every day for the last 4 months since GDC, so I've got a decent coverage of very current things. I've also been doing it on-and-off prior to this, collecting screenshots for the last 2 years. This is my current list of games I have screenshots for:

(sorry for not making it searchable)

Now I want to analyze them all and create a bigger overview article for my online magazine. My blog has been around since 2010 and I will analyze all the games I've posted since then, however, I'm afraid I'll still miss any important titles.

I'd appreciate your help! I'm trying to make sure everyone's favorites are included in my analysis.

Pixel Art / Portraits
« on: October 02, 2016, 02:02:57 am »
Hi everyone,

This is my first critique thread as I want to improve at drawing portraits. I'll post a new one every day, as well as iterate on the ones from the previous days based on the feedback. I'm going for a realistic look and proportions, but the shading might fluctuate between realistic and stylized. The palette is locked to Atari 2600.

To start off I looked at instructions from the Illustrators Guidebook, a book by 21 Draw I backed on Kickstarter. It was supposed to be a feminine face, but it turned out quite androgynous.

Here's the ref (a page from the book, so please don't share):
