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

Hi there! I started pixelating as a hobby in late 2012 and I'm looking to improve. Looking forward to getting involved!

Hey everyone! My name's Chris and I'm currently majoring in Game Design at Becker College in Massachusetts. I haven't started on anything super fancy or serious yet, but I've taken a couple of stabs at pixel art over the past year or two and thought I would share some of my more recent stuff here to get feedback and tips for improvement (I find I'm pretty hard on myself, but having some external critique would help articulate exactly what and how to improve my work). I was actually recommended to sign up here by Pixelscopic, the guys currently working on Delver's Drop, as a good resource to get critique on my stuff, so I'd just like to quickly thank them for directing me here. I'm kind of bad with forum prowling so I apologize in advance if I'm not extremely active, but I'll do my best to contribute and be a part of the community!

Hi everyone,

I am a 35 year old 2d/3d freelancer/generalist from the Netherlands, decided to join here and see what dark secrets lies within the land of the pixels he he he...
My experience in art dates back from 3dstudio Max 4 and on... always loved 3d modeling, but somehow always had a weakspot for traditional frame by frame animation. That's why i decided to join here to boost my creativity as well as my current skillset.

   With kind regards, Daniël

Hey all,

Great forum! I had a little peek and there is tones of stuff here that will come in useful. I decided the other day to give 2D game-design a serious try. I've worked with ink and pencil for over 15 years now, and I have always loved gaming. The idea of trying to make my own games has always appealed to me but I was always put off by how complex it all seemed...

Luckily, a buddy of mine invited me to join him in a little python programming course and now I feel much more competent to put something together! Of course, programming is only a tiny part of it, and its the creative design that really makes or brakes a game.

Pixel art seemed a great place to start. I love the old snes games (I still play EVO and Act Raiser regularly) and I just love getting stuck into the tiny little details of my drawings.

Anyway, I will post updates and designs as I go along and I look forward to your critiques and feedback!
