At what size does pixel art become meaningful?

on: September 20, 2010, 02:51:56 am
I recently posted a sprite on another forum, and was told that by an extremely talented spriter for whom I have a great deal or respect, that "pixelart of this resolution isn't really detailed enough to quibble over". My sprite isn't even like 8 by 3 or something like that, it's 18x44, but that's not even the point. 1 pixel, isolated, I think is not detailed enough to warrant too much excitement, so therefore there must by a line. At what size are sprites meaningful?

There is no definite size to speak of.
Perhaps you pulled that statement out of context and it meant something different?
Why don't you show us the thread or the piece in question?
Does scaling an image blur it?

As it turns out, it was a complete misunderstanding.  :-[ So uh, yeah.
