Hello all, hANshOTtH3RD here(a.k.a. hANdsh0Tn0goOd on imgur, and u/dares2share on reddit). I registered back in 2016, but I guess i forgot to introduce myself until now...

I have no formal training in graphic art, although I've always liked to draw ever since I was a kid. Really, it's mostly just been doodles in notebook margins. I sort of had a lull during my college days, although in recent years I began playing around in GIMP, and doing some logo design for some personal software projects.

Recently circumstances have sort of put programing on the back-burner a bit, while also leaving me with more time to scroll the internet, and also draw more. What started as logo design drifted more into collages/mashups, and digital-art in general(all in GIMP-2.8.10).

I definitely also have a thing for retro style graphics. I think it is nostalgia for when I was a kid; too young to play games myself, rather watching older kids play the games for me. ;) Also, I guess, in my short debut as a software developer, I sort of grew an aversion to all sorts of new tech coming out, and consequently now seek out classic/vintage/retro stuff as much as possible.

Also, I've become more & more interested in recent developments in the healthcare industry the past few years, as I seem to have acquired some bad luck, and various accompanying medical problems. I've also taken more interest in business+investing news, from my various attempts in business/efforts to build a carrier for myself. ...I've also become more aware of the international goings on. ...basically I like to watch the news!  ...and I also like pixel art! ;D

Hello everyone, Frelon-K, 31 years old, from France.
I'll try to be exhaustive and not being too long.

I'm fairly new to pixel art. To be correct, I purchased Aseprite a while ago and doodled around. But recently, I started a course to improve my pixel art, so it would be more accurate to say I'm taking a fresh start. I am actually on a self-challenge to do one pixel-art per day. Today is the day number 5. This is to evaluate my progress over time.  :)

Otherwise, as a solo developer, I'm like a swiss knife when it comes to game development. I can do composition (this is what I do the best, especially chiptunes). I can code, I actually use Unity and C#. I can also write (the texts I am writing are extremely violent, that is pretty paradoxal). I can do the Community Management (even if I hate this job with a burning passion) and web development (same as CM). I have already released a JRPG (made with RMMV) and a Danmaku (made with Unity) on itch. Sometimes I am a jammer, I actually took part at the GGJ some days ago. Unfortunately, I lack of marketing skills. :blind:

I work actually on a rogue-lite.

I was looking for a small and friendly forum. Firstly because I miss the old Internet. And secondly, because I became sick and tired of social networks. I still have a Twitter account, but this is tiring and boring. I mean, there are a lot of informations and stuff in a short amount of time, all stacking onto a bottomless pit... I can understand some people like it, but to me this is an endless source of stress. So... Well, better find a forum, like the good old days, slow down the pace and take time.  :D

Cheers everyone.  :D

Hey everyone,

Call me Gypsy; I'm an indie dev working on his first project, which is rather simplistic looking topdown shooter. I decided to stop being afraid of failing at art and try to really learn and push myself to my limits in the hopes of making my future projects look like the games I've always loved and wanted to emulate, so I grew myself some courage and started learning art. I'm here to try and post as many Daily Sketches as possible and improve my pixel art, getting valuable feedback from the experienced pixel artists in the community.

Hopefully I'll be a fixture in this website for as long as possible.
Thank you for your time, everyone!

Gypsy.

I just realized I read the rules, but never submitted my introduction ><.

Hi! my name is michael vicente, I'm a 3d artist for the video game industry (I work at blizzard). I also like to draw a lot, and I want to improve in pixel art. I'm trying to make an isometric side project (zombie arpg haha so original), so I'm looking forward to feedback and improve.

Hi everyone! I'm Thomas, 26, planning to sharpen my skills in pixel art and programming for developing my first game(s).

Back in the time (3 years ago) I got my degree in Mechanical and Energetic engineering, then I worked 4 month in an industrial company, left and began a new project with 2 friends (helping disabled people to ride their bikes), and to earn some money I worked in 2 different Fab Labs and in cultural and scientific museum as a community worker.

Now a lot of these changed quite fast, I'm gonna be dad in around 3 months, decided to quit the city I was living cause it didn't feel right to raise my child there. So the bike adapting project is still half going but not getting any money..

Another interesting point is that I managed (or something managed) to unblock my creative block that I got in the lately high school period... Before that, I was writing, drawing, creating little movies, and doing pixel art and animation! God only knows what happened (something like social pressure they call it) and I got into the role of perfect student until my engineering degree. But last summer (2019) I unlocked my creativity! And ever since this time I'm drawing everyday, creating wooden sculptures or random objects, 3D printing, painting in every mediums... And now coming back to pixel art and improving my programming skills (as I learned C/C++ in quite good level in school, and a little bit Java and python)

I'm looking for any advise to help me reach my goal of being a good game developer. And also free for some work on projects if my skills fit! You can see a bit of my lately creative explosion on Instagram @palo.poli.art (I know I should go on DeviantArt, or even Twitter, but anyway this insta is just the beginning of showing myself with confidence)

I hope it was interesting for you to absorb all of this story, I'm grateful if you read it all  :)

See you soon!

Hi there! I'm Gonzalo.

I'm a programmer, but have been learning gamedev for a few years, which led me to pixel art (and animation).
I did some pixel art for games over at HomeTeam GameDev, and then decided to join Pixel Joint and Pixelation to get more specific feedback and hopefully improve my skills  :)

I'm free!!
