Well, I suppose I'd better post here.

You can call me squirrel. I've only been pixeling for about two weeks, but I've been doing more traditional art since I was 17 (over half a decade... I feel old.).


But anyways, here's me (well, as close as I can get so far):

All this has a soul, no monkeys aping the form or anything of the type. These are HEAVY METAL. Now, moving on:

Doom Metal (including doomdeath):

Candlemass, Memory Garden, Trouble, Pentagram,  St. Vitus, Thergothon, Esoteric, dISEMBOWELMENT, Shape of Despair, early My Dying Bride, Unholy, Forsaken, The 3rd and the Mortal, While Heaven Wept, Abstract Algebra, early Anathema, early Paradise Lost, Orphaned Land, Asunder, The Gault, Morgion, early Cathedral (up to and including Forest of Equillibrium), Doomsword, Evoken, Skepticism, Veni Domine, Dusk, Krux, Saturnus, Winter, Worship

That's enough to keep you occupied to track down for a while. one band per genre is in bold. Start there. Even if that's all you check out from my list, you'll become a better person for it.

Oh my god you listed one hundred bands and completely avoid Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Vader, and Tristania/Sirenia. (Or Rammstein for metal culture matter...or Children of Bodom...at some tiny point...) That's, like...blasphemy.


Ah yes, I'm the new around. Not a spriter. Tried spriting several times every time got bored after few hours. I can handle the spriting, just don't have desire to. Sad. Just a sprite viewer and team member seeker, currently. Will make sure to exist here, though. Greetings from me.

Hmm, that's funny. I thought I initially read Dimmu Borgir in the text before this post. Strange.

   Vader, and Bodom, I like. However Black metal, I still have a hard time getting used to. I've heard "Demon Burger" for a while, but have barely started getting used to it. Their not bad, though. Now Cradle of Filth on the other hand...Blegh! Can't stand them. The vocals, the gimmick, and the goth-like light instrumentals(keyboards, not the slightly hard guitar, and drum work) really kill it for me...

   Also, I'd try and give PIXELING another shot. It's not just about spriting characters. Maybe you're good at background work, or tiling and iso. You never know, man. Don't give it up. If not, though, that's cool. You could always help critique us. Artists deserve critique from all forms of talent, and background, not just isolated minorities....
my back hurts...

No, that's like... having good taste in metal. Dimmu Borgir are awful. Cradle of Filth are overdone kitch without any reason to exist. Vader are okay I guess, I can listen to Morbid Angel though, so I don't need them. Tristania, uh. Rammstein? Children of Boredom? Come on. Talk to me about all these bands after you've been listening to metal for more than 5 years. Tell me if they still hold any appeal to you.

Rammstein.... :-X Wheee, we can play approximately 3 riffs. One of the crappest bands ever to reach commercial success.

How is that to be understood Takam? Everything that reaches commercial success sucks? If so, grow up, OK.

Also from someone who keeps taking inspiration from established, very commercially successful IPs by Nintendo and such...
