Greatness, comes in many shapes and sizes.
Me, I like to think of greatness as a 6'1, male, blonde haired, blue eyed, self-proclaimed genius.
I suppose I got into Pixel Art manly due to video games, Street Fighter to be exact.
I've been doing pixel art for the best part of over five years now, starting small with random scenes, moving onto little men based off a template and later experimenting to make a version of The Hulk - still incomplete. Now, I simply wing it.
As Jal would summarise;
• 12 pak abs
• invented cool
• blah, blah, blah!
