Thanks pavanz! That's so beautiful. Love old school RPGs, so that was a real treat. Thanks again and happy holidays, my friend.

Also, thanks SadLittleNerd, for having my back with skamocore. I'm sure everybody's been so busy this time of year, so that was nice of you.

I can't wait to go thru all of these. Can't wait.

Cheers everyone.

Sweet! I'm totally psyched! Think I missed the last year or so, so I'm readying to get back into pixel art.

-Classic 16 & 64 bit video games (Mischief Makers, Paper Mario, Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, CastleVania, Pokemon, Banjo & Kazooie)
-Weird stuff, weird colors, weird angles, creativity
-My favorite colors: Teal/ green
-Plants & animals
-Sci-fi, Fantasy landscapes, funky deserts, noir
Or just surprise me

-Horror themes
-Overly festive art

How could I miss Dex? His work for this year is amazing! Truly flawless.
And, nice job Jim16 on that batman piece. It's very nice, and a great gesture on your part. Thanks for spreading Christmas cheer.

Thank you Gamer36!  Better late than never, right :3 But yeah, I too found myself lacking time to do mine. Had several finals to study for and family flying in. I'm surprised I finished mine in time, too XD But, Happy Holidays to you as well!

Oh and Riva, if you haven't started that piece (or haven't gotten very far in it) I would really prefer if you made a gift for one of the people that is still giftless. I appreciate your spirit, and hope that you make someone else happy. Thank you!

Oh and I didn't have time to say this yesterday, but I LOVE the works by wolfenoctis, Tim, Cyangmou, Night, offwhite, PixelPiledriver, and Mr. Beast. I also look forward to seeing the finished versions of those wips (especially the piece from Ultimaodin- that's gonna look pretty wicked when it's done.) Bravo everyone, and great pixels!

Great gifts everyone! Really good stuff.

Hello, my name is Zachary Crozier, and I am a pixel artist. Although I have worked with multiple mediums in the past (digital painting, vectors, and other forms of graphic design) pixel art is unique and one that I hold close to my heart. I have some experience in the field- I have helped several indie developers and created entire assets for a handful of games. The simplistic and sometimes nostalgic nature of pixel art  is quite eye-catching in computer games, and thus I hope you contact me if you are interested in doing so. I assure you my heart, soul, and fingertips will not wear out, when the day is done.

Below are a few examples of my recent pixel works. There is a mix of game mockups, tile works, scenes, and characters. I also can do animations amongst other things like concept art.

Please feel free to contact me for business, ask question, inquire about my wages, or the like.
(For the record, I won't be charging nearly as much money as some of the other artists out there. Depending on the complexity and budget of one's project, hourly wages will be in the 12-15 $ [American] per hour. Indie game developing is tricky, and cash can be tough to come by; so I hope I can account for this money suppressed world we are living in.)

My email address is

You can also view my non-digital works here-
Some of my older pixel works can also be viewed here-

Thank you for reading, and have a nice day!

@Mathias: I doubt this is the guy you are talking about (since this piece is from a few years ago), but

Yeah, Mathias, I'm getting a malware warning off that Scribblette link. Dunno how safe that page is there.
It's a link to another thread on the forum you just posted on. So probably pretty safe?
Yes, I understand that I just posted on this site... But, what I am saying is whatever may be the problem lies on that page. Here is what I am getting in response to clicking that link.

As for comments on this thread, the shadow cast by the tree should be covering at least a little of the trunk. It appears there is a little pillow shading going on also (ie the bottom left of the trunk). The leaves are really geometric and copy-pasted. The colors on the leaves are better than that of the dull trunk luckily.
