Hi! My name's Spin. I'm a beginner pixel artist that has made two games in the last few years. I'm currently working an internship for my programming degree, and my game making has a little to do with it.

I have a Facebook page for my game, in case anyone is interested: https://www.facebook.com/Sirpo.Spin

As I am kind of a beginner to pixel art. I saw that this might be a good place to learn a bit, I appreciate anyone that puts up with me while I'm here. XD

Thanks guys! Hope I enjoy ya'lls' company.

Hi all :D. Nice to meet you all! :D
My name is Vsio Stitched :D.
I am basically a programmer, but I want to learn pixel art more too so I can improve my own game better :D.
I have pixel art experience in the past but I didn't have enough the basic to draw my pixel art optimally XD.
So, I want to learn pixel art more xD.

Hi everyone! I couldn't find an introduction section, so I guess this is the best place to do this. I found this website earlier today and I feel this will be a great place for a budding pixel artist like myself to grow. Hopefully I can get some examples of my work up shortly, and I welcome any and all constructive criticism (I can't improve if I don't know what's wrong)
I've already poked at one of the tutorials on here pointing out some of the do's and don'ts for pixel art btw.

EDIT: just saw the "rules and introduce yourself" thread -_-... oh well

Hey guys,

I've been lurking for a bit, and decided it's about time I get busy on the game project I'd like to accomplish.
Looks like a great place to get inspiration and learn from a bunch of skilled artists!

Also,  "Welcome!" to all the other newbies.

Hi everyone! I'm Eiyeron, and I'm now a IT student in France.
I started programming 4 years ago, on graphics calculators, and here, more than everywhere, pixel art is necessary to have great results : a calc screen like TI-83/84 is only 96*64 pixels wide. (i'm not counting Casio with their luxuous 128*64, nor the advanced models, like the TI-89, the nSpire with its 16-bit QVGA and the Prizmwith its 16-bit almost-QVGA).

I started years ago my love for retro-gaming. I got a little game collection that I'm proud. I love the NES-SNES-MD eras, specially on the graphics works, and how we can see that graphists used to take time on each pixel we can see... And the music... (for me the music is the most deepeset part of the videogame experience. YOu can forget how a Megadrive Sonic game is, but not the music).

I started pixellating with Paint for some calc projects (<insert obvious sokoban game here >) . It was... ugly.
Time passes, and I try to work more and more on monochrome 8*8 sprites, and I learned some things with the many tutorials here and there on the Interwebs. I learned how each pixel counts, and how just changing a pixel can totally change a work.

I doing more and more pixel (and less and less programming :S). I'm surpeised how my recent works are way better than expected and than what I was doing at the first times.

A friend, Siapran, is here. He made me discover this place. A huge load of inspiration, labor and beautiful works. Let's enjoy pixelling!

Hello people of Pixelation,

I've been lurking these parts off and on now for a good long while and felt it was high time to say a few words, things such as "Hi!" and "How goes it?". This has to be the most knowledgeable and passionate community of pixel artists I've run across, and as ours is a medium I've rarely found an opportunity to relate to people on in the workaday world, the prospect of getting involved in, and learning from, the sorts of cool discussions and critiques common to this place is enormously appealing.

Anyhow, it's good to be here!

Well Hello!

My name is Jeff I just turned 25 yesterday and I love pixel art! :y:

I very first got into pixel art well cause of the mugen community and I started from there. All That was like 7 years ago and i was doing pixel art on and off but now its a main stay in my life.

I started mostly editing existing sprites into something else. I have gotten a lot more serious towards increasing my skills.

I am a novice when it comes to drawing with pencil but I am focusing on becoming great at all of that! So I can become a pixel beast!

My favorite styles are mostly fighting games mainly capcom's but I have decided to work on getting to other genre.

So put me in the game Coach I'm ready to learn :crazy:

also you can check out my pixel art right here if your curious :-[

Hello!

I'm somewhat of an aspiring game developer who's had an interest in pixel art for a long time. I've been lurking these forums for awhile, decided I might as well try joining here now.
I don't currently have any art I could try to get critique on due to some writers block, but I definitely would like to try to offer what critique I feel I can as well.
