I'm not sure where the heck this list orginally came from... maybe it's samson's?
http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=393&KW=links

There's also a list of tutorials that anyone can add to...
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixels/tutorials.asp

And a general pixel art links section that anyone can add to here...
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixels/links.asp

Hope these help.

That first link to pixeljoint is definitely Samson's list, although it's missing the section on pixel eye-candy goodness.
I found this more complete version a long time ago on some BBoard during a google.

I just made it sticky but, Xegnma could you change the Title of this topic to just "Tools and Tutorials."  Just to make it easy.

Also, get a mod to delete all the posts and edit the first post to include the list. The only thing that should be in this topic is the list and people posting their own links
