I am Yaomon.
Some kid in highschool looking to be an Indie Dev someday. Started with pixels, trying to get into code. Found out I did that in the wrong order (for me at least). Cannot learn code for my life.

Hello!

I've went posting without introducing myself, so here I am, better late than never ;)

I'm Cage, I'm 22 and I come from Poland. My first creative activity I've really got into was making games (The Games Factory at first), and well, every game needs art, right? ;) This way I've discovered pixel art (which turns out, up to that point, my gfx was mostly pixel art, but I didn't have a clue it is ;)). In general, that was my first art themed activity, so it was a rough start. What was great about it then, was the small size of the sprites - with some trial and error I could get at least acceptable results which was motivating and I kept doing more. :) Soon I've discovered that progress in pixel art made my traditional drawing a bit better, and I've started drawing a bit more. However, as far as quality goes, my expectations where way beyond my ability and I quickly got disheartened - I've sidetracked into design and motion graphics but I've got back into drawing soon. Few drawing classes I've had and some artbooks changed the way I've approached it and well, since then I'm seeing progress ;) I didn't regularly practice before 2012, though. Last year I've decided that I would like to be a illustrator and/or a full-time game artist - 2013 is another year of working my arse off towards this goal ;)

While I'm not doing any pixel art at the moment, it's something that has a very warm place in my heart ;) I plan to get back into regular pixelling once I work a bit more on the general art principles though!

Hi!
My name is Rafał and I'm from Poland. I've got an about two year experience in pixelcars/mangacars, small branch of pixelart specified in creating cars in three views, but I'm completely new in classic pixelart.
I think I'm learning pretty fast, so expect something from me soon ;D

Hello everyone  ;D

I'm AquaXranoX but people call me Aqua. I'm from New York. I've been pixel-arting for 8 years but I've been going in the wrong direction... Looked everywhere on deviant-art and other places to see where I go wrong and this is the first place where I saw banding, jaggies and other new terms that I've never heard of before.

I hope that I can finally learn how to pixel-art the right way because I'm always dissapointed with how i do. Hope to enjoy myself here and thank you.

Hello! I'm YellowLime.
I'm from Spain, more specifically the Canary Islands (remember that Simpsons episode where Burns' canary flies away? No?) but you don't have to dumb your English down for me to understand. ;) I'm currently in college, studying computer science.

My username harks back to when I was another young teenager on an RPG Maker forum, and decided to use "YellowSlime" (slime as in, the RPG enemy). Then as I grew up, I found it dumb, and in a twist of genius :crazy:, removed the S, ending up with "YellowLime". Food-related usernames are sort of a cliché, but I haven't thought up anything better yet. :P

Anyway, I went and signed up here, because there are a lot of very talented artists, others that really want to improve, a nice community in general, and the best forum emoticons I´ve ever seen. ::)
I hope to improve, and help others improve as well!  :D

Thank you very much, I'm flattered that you like it ;D

I'd never spent so much time in a piece before, and it went sort of unnoticed over at PixelJoint when I posted it. Thanks again  ;)

Hi guys,

I used to do pixel art back in high school and recently became interested in it again due to the fantastic indie games that utilize it. I hope to use this forum to get better at pixel art, hopefully I can get good enough to do artwork for games one day. I drew up my avatar and sig especially for this forum. I'm not very good at pixel art yet but hopefully that will change once I get involved in some of the activities and tutorials on this site.

Cheers,

Steneslore

[edit] Didn't see this thread. Thanks for moving it for me, mods
