It's been way too long since I pixeled, and for the first time in years I have a calm December, so count me in!

Stuff I like:
  • Science fiction: cyberpunk, steampunk, dieselpunk, dystopias and utopias, bio-mechanical stuff
  • Mechs, anything from US/EU style clunky war mechs like Mech Warrior, to hyper stylised Japanese mechs like Gundam (though I think my love for mechs is kind of a given by now :))
  • Spaceships, space stuff in general
  • Game mock-ups (shmups, rpg's, metroidvania, Zelda-like adventure games)
  • Beautiful, fantasy rich landscapes
  • 80's revivalism
  • Mythological stuff and crazy creatures

I'm adding a new rule this year:

If you only have a few posts or an empty profile, put your social media/gallery (if you have them) in your profile so that people have a better idea of who you are when making a present for you.

I'll PM the people who already posted with 1 post

Okay! I had fun doing this last year, so I might as well have a go again. *cracks knuckles*

I'm gonna (more or less) copy-paste my list from last year, though my likes have changed slightly within the past year. The first bullet is my biggest want, so please pixel that if you can!

Here's what I like:
- Toot the Gumble from Bottersnikes and Gumbles. This little guy is my favorite, he has a simple cute design and a messed up backstory, and I love him to pieces. Since this guy is from an obscure show, if you need to you can read about him here (you'll need to scroll down and click the picture labelled "Toot" to view his rotatable picture and biography), and here's some refs as well: [1][2][3]
- For that matter, the Bottersnikes are cool too. I really like Chank and Smiggles
- Gargamel (the cartoon/comic version)
- Nightmare Fuel - Well, not exactly eldritch abominations or zombies or the like, just dark stuff that would scare someone
-My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, my favorite villain being Queen Chrysalis
-Old cartoon classics, think stuff like Dexter's Lab, The Jetsons and Smurfs
-Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
-Birds - I love parrots, corvids (crows, ravens, jays and magpies) and birds of prey (especially owls) the most
-Crossovers and/or parodies
-Freaky messed-up things hiding behind something seemingly cute and harmless (e.g. Eversion, Pony Island, Watership Down the movie, you get what I mean)
-I like a healthy mix of slightly muted and slightly vibrant colors with varying shades inbetween, take a look at the DB32 palette to get the idea of what I mean
-Ace Attorney, Miles Edgeworth especially. Just started looking at the franchise, and both the gameplay and Miles' character design really appeal to me for some reason
-Anime style I don't mind!

Here's what I don't like:
-Please, please, PLEASE don't depict anything that has to do with toilet humor :0#
-No graphic gore please - Some blood is fine though
-Nothing 18+
-Quicksand (or whatever those watery things you slowly sink into when you struggle are called). I hate these with a fiery passion
-Insects, with exceptions being bees, ladybugs, butterflies, bumblebees, grasshoppers and praying mantises
-Nothing over the top, i.e. try not to go too crazy :p Basically I'm not very fond of excessive exaggeration.
-Realism, if you are doing any fictional characters - this is not a strong dislike, but I wish to have them keep to their original artstyle. Semi-realism and/or extreme detail is fine, just as long as they don't boil down to "what X would look like in real life" (e.g. a pony from MLP:FiM very closely resembling an actual horse/pony)
-Frilliness - As much as I am a girl whose likes include MLP and cute animals, I don't like it when something is overly saccharine
-Machinery-oriented pieces. Well, I'm not against stuff like robots and sci-fi per se, it's just that I prefer natural, organic sceneries and creatures as the main theme :)
