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

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, DaniŽl

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!

Hi, I used to make some Sonic edits a long time ago, but then I realised my skill level never really went anywhere. Picked up interest in pixel art again and hoping to make a fresh start.

Have seen many great works here by the members, and I am quite amazed. Hoping to one day reach a level where I can do work for games.

Hello, everyone! I am a new pixel artist and programmer for hobby. I like to work with Java, and am fairly good with programming concepts and practices, but I'm not as familiar with other languages. Currently, I'm working on a small Java game mainly for experience points so that I can level up. Where on this forum would it be appropriate to ask questions about terrain blending and making well blended tile sets?
