pixel this, though. And try to avoid banding. Oh and use 16 colors.


Pixel art is suited for sharp rendering generally... some things are very difficult to do in it.

Haha, I mean this picture even looks banded in this res! Hahaha.

Edit: also if you use the photoshop 'effects' for your pixel art. Well let's just say most of them should never be used for ANY kind of art!

i love a good use of opacity and some glow effects (the castlevania games for example) as long as it isn't overboard.

I like it when pixel art has an effect like this applied to it, to make it appear as if it's on a television screen.

That's my favourite way of viewing pixel art - when not original size.

Well if that's what it's gonna be then I prefer a CRT : D sometimes even the artifacts. That's pure nostalgia I reckon.

There's definitely something lost in translation when you try to apply filters to make it look like a tube TV... you don't get those beautiful saturated glows and rich colors like only a tube can give you, that's what really makes pixel art pretty on a TV.
