WHY PIXEL ART?
ahh, pixel art. it occupies a special place in my heart. It requires patience and lots of sacrifices. plus, it is very cool, and sort of geeky.
and i've been inspired by the art these people: cure (his colors and his tutorials were great) , adarias, jalonso (isometric art never cease to amaze me), ensellitis (humorous), gas13 (his site was helpful), and the mighty fool (need i say more?).
and perhaps, pixel artist are rare in this part of the world.
Im proud of being one.
