hi

i am the turbo lazer 68k hailing from unintentified piece of soil in eastern europe. :)

Though my childhood years was in the ps2 era, at the age of 8 i discovered that all of this emulator stuff existed thru which i could explore games from different times and spaces that i would otherwise have never heard of.

Whilst playing all tha retro crap i gained (platonic) fetish for pixel art when upon beholding vidyas like Lomax and Metal Slug, which made me realise that while hewg crunchy squares might be a manifestation of low-tekness, they never were a manifestation of fugliness like a lot of kids thought.

Eventually i tried my hand at pixelpushing and with time it became one of my favourite techniques for making grafix as well as paintings. I find it enchating bkuz it requires to work on very low-level, controlling every pixel by hand while at the same time being oddly simple - no multiple layers, 236342 brush settings, smudging - you just pop pixel into this colour or that colour, that's all the choice you have, and it is bootifully primitive.

ps. this site has the best built-in emoticons i have seen anywhere ever, who drew them?

Hello everyone! First post here.

My name is Eduardo and I've always loved games.
I've worked in advertisement for years and the work sucked so bad(And the sleep you get is so little) that I quit and started making games.
I've been making pixelart for about 3 years now and I am quite fond of it.
I am also the programmer of the team so unfortunately I can't put all my time in pixelart but i've been trying to improve. And i hope i can get some feedback here, i've found some amazing improvement from people in the foruns and i hope i can join the improvement club. Heheh!

Hope we can exchange some nice info. Never been part of a pixel art forum before.

Anyway that's my summary, hope to see you around.

Hello everyone.

I forgot to post here first, since I've just been in the devlogs.

I am Bacrylic, cofounder and art director of Squaretale.
I intend to do a lot of different projects, but I'm here because of our first game endeavor is a pixel game.
Someone in the game developer's association recommended coming here for advice.

Hey!

Since I joined this forum I thought that it just would be polite to introduce myself before I'm on my way to discover everything you're providing!

So, if I'm going to introduce myself, I probably should say couple more things about myself than just one sentence.

Known as 17fthigh.

My name is Chris and I just turned 20 years old. I left school when I was 14 years old and learned english on my own, latvian is my native language so I apologize if I'm making some mistakes. After I left school I learned everything about graphic design on my own by giving libraries and internet tutorials a visit and I think that this way it's easier to learn everything since you don't have to deal with things that doesn't seem interesting to you. Oh, forgot to mention that I'm from Latvia but you could already think of that when I mentioned my native language. So yeah, in my free time I also read books and do some boxing, been doing that since I was very young.

About video games? Nah, I quit playing them quicker than I stopped smoking since I got more interested in finding ways how to earn money in internet. So one day ago 14.09.2017 I decided to create my own YOUTUBE channel and see where it goes. Even if it fails and I will not succeed, I'll grow because I tried, so it would be shame not to give it a try.

I'm not able to tell anything more because I'm high as fuck and this laptop screen makes me feel a bit bad, but I hope that it's enough!

I hope that I'll get to know you all, if not all then atleast some!

xx,
Chris.

Not quite an artist but really interested in pixel art. I seek to fight my social anxiety, and I found than finding confidence via creation is the best way to go on in life, thus I started drawing, pixel art , and music. My skills are still raw but it's always a pleasure to see improvement in my work.

Hope we get along !

Thank you. Hope to meet new friends here :) I'm from Italy and I'm a photographer. In my spare time I play boardgames, paint miniatures, play with my PC and I do coding. I'm here because I want to find someone to join my project :)

Hello,
I'm nicolas. I'm 36 now. I work as analyst developer on websites / applications / smartphone applications / SOA..., and at night-time I love to develop 2D games since my childhood.
but pixel art is really hard, and I hope I will find help and advices here.
( I've made a game using copyrighted sprites for dev speed up, the rules of this forum are really strict, and to avoid get banned, is there a section where I could post copyrighted work and WIP replacement ? because I want to use these as base to remake sprites from bitmap brothers and snk until get out of copyright and derivative work )

(little sample)

Hi, I'm Cherry (usually I go by another "fruit" but this time I chose something more sweet) and I'm just hear to take in and try to learn a bit more about 2D spriting.  :-*
