I’m a Sucker For Pixel Art

After founding this pixel art site I’ve been like a kid in a candy store – excited about how good looking art these guys can do.

Look for example this picture (click here to see it). I don’t know who did this in the first place (“Snake” or somebody else – there seemed to be some confusion in the discussion), but I can’t but admire the effort put. I bet it took a pretty long time to get this piece done.

Just awesome.

  1. Eli: thanks for the tip, gotta check that out

    Keith: thanks for the clear definition.

  2. the site is fine but they miss Paul Robertson.

  3. Pixel art means they create art one pixel at a time, without using any external tools, and usually with the mouse. A lot of them actually use Microsoft paint (if they’re on windows) because they don’t need any extra tools. It’s truly amazing. It’s like a mosaic or stippling or something.

  4. I love pixeljoint… and apparently you do too…

    If this is the case, be sure to check out: http://www.wayofthepixel.net
    It’s a little less friendly to navigate, but there’s some mean work in there if you look AND you get more of an incite into the creation process.

  5. Well, I guess you could define it that way that the artist must create the asset pixel by pixel without using any gradient fills or stuff like that.

  6. What’s the definition of pixel art? I love it too, but some of it just seems like art.
