Easilly I have to say Helm's "The Spartan" is my all-time favorite.  I've never been so blown away by use of color and style.

I have to agree with Argyle here. While it's not by far the best, most revolutionary or even most eye-pleasing piece of pixel art out there, it has a raw, close connection to our medium. The fact that it uses just these basic colours and was made by "one of us" makes it a powerful statement towards pixel art as an art form that isn't ready to die.

Yeah on dA, the pixel art section in the forum is like dead o___o;

And it's hard finding a community of people who do pixel art. I finally found this forum. xD

Not sure if game screenshots count, but I always loved the art in Simon the Sorcerer.

As far as newer stuff goes, I really like these EGA faces by ptoing.

That thread quickly went almost exclusively for game screenshots and art.

It would be interesting if this thread continued without any game related art...

I don't quite see what's wrong with having game art as a favorite. It's just as much pixel art as the next thing.
