I'm floored.

on: November 12, 2006, 05:30:28 am
I want to start out by saying that I am absolutely floored by the pixel art work I've seen on here.  I've been looking for pixel artists off and on for a few years now, when ever I get it in my head to start a project, and I always look for artists with out success (nobody likes to work for free, me included)  But I simply must say.  This is the best pixel work I have seen in years.   Seriously!  All of you are in teh wrong generation for the talent you have.  You should have been around 15 to 25 years ago and gotten work with the big names.  The quality of art here is simple amazing and I did not realize just what exactly COULD be done with pixels.   I'm truly impressed and wish I had the talent  and patience to do it my self.

My hats off to you Pixelation!

Now to continue my search for artists...

If you are looking for pixel-artists for a project, would it not just have been easier to post in the employment section and skipped all the kissing?

"You should have been around 15 to 25 years ago and gotten work with the big names."

Lots of guys here have been around for 20 years, and are in with big names.

No the "kissing" is genuine.  Which is why I posted it here.  And while I am always looking for pixel artists,  I've got less to offer than most people on the employment section.  I suppose it wouldn't hurt to post an ad.

And wow.  I didn't realize that about some of the artists here.  I stumbled on this place a few weeks ago and lurked before I created my account to post a compliment.

Ja, thats nice of you. Thanks for being kind, though I hope no one imitates you. I could see this getting annoying.

Your project looks like it has some potential.  I think everyone is floored when they first come here.  I know i was!

all projects have potential. :p  its just dedication that makes them shine.  I'm actually surprised I have as many people on board with me as I do, even if most of them are friends I've known for a while.  Its nice to see some support. :p

I wish I'd been born earlier (in regard to games, anyway). GBA and DS are cool but having incredibly-limiting restrictions like the 2600 allowed really force the artist to push the most out of their pixels. With GBA and beyond, artists can be sloppier or less meticulous and get away with it.

Just say no to 3D->2D downsampling.  :y:
