Pixel Art / New to Pixeling
« on: August 28, 2006, 04:05:56 am »
Hey! New aspiring pixel artist here! I've read a bunch of tutorials, read over some of the best work over here, and thought I'd give it a go.

Reason for pixeling: Out of necessity, I'm a game programmer working in flash, wanting to make games in the spirit of old NES games like Megaman, ect.

I didn't really see a "read this to know how the forums work" post on the way in, so if anyone could point me to that or answer a few questions, it would be really helpful.

1. How do I post images of my sprites? Do I need them hosted on another site? (That's how img tags work, right?)

2. Any tips for a new pixel artist?

3. What's a good "project" to start off with? I'm having a lot of trouble creating original sprites that look correct, and have stuck to modding/recoloring Megaman sprites, which most likely is a big no-no.

4. I'm using Tile Studio right now, is that a good program?

Hopefully you'll be seeing me around, this seems like a really great site  ;D.
