It's been a long time since the actual resolution of a screen mattered for pixel art. As long as people are looking at 2D screens, pixel art will be a viable, if niche, medium.

This is beautiful! Great to see your process and preparation, basically a full fledged illustration done in pixels! I did prefer the earlier, simple clouds, but this solution works too. Thanks for sharing!

Pixeled anime faces are a very specific art. I think one of the best things to do is look at some inspirational examples. This artist has a lot of great ones:

Work on improving your fundamental art skills so that you have a solid base, and look at work like this to improve specifically in this subject.

Keep going! I only have a general sense of whats going on in these screens. Would be nice to see everything more fleshed out so we can get a better sense of how the game works and what might should be changed ui/ design wise.

This is the same one they always do, right? I think I've bought it twice and their servers crash whenever everybody tries to redeem everything. Still a great deal though!

Thanks so much for sharing these little nuggets of gold, Henk! I've never backed anybody on patreon, but yours is a tempting offer to break that.

I think it's a great start! Any reason you haven't made it taller? I think the thin lanky feel is an important part of it's design. Just stretching it up a bit feels a lot better:

Probably wouldn't hurt to even go a bit taller, I just brought it to a clean 64 pix height.

Do giveaways bring in enough people who stay to be worth it? It seems more like a way to get a lot of temporary, but ultimately worthless, exposure and a bunch of dead accounts.
I think it would be more effective to instead toss some tendrils out to other platform in the form of Twitter/Tumblr/whatever posts promoting stuff from the feature chests, weekly "good thread" features that aren't quite feature chest material, that sort of thing. Things like that are more likely to get the attention of the sorts of people who'd actually end up using the site.

Yep, we should have been doing that for a while now. We were about to use the pixelation twitter for more than just status; just never got around to it. We can certainly start there.
