Hey, I started pixelling around 2005, and have slowly been honing my skills as time flies by. I am, right now(2012-2013) in my second year at a Pacific Northwestern university. I love science, primarily animal biology, and art, obviously. I also play the flute, and am an avid tabletop RPG player and burgeoning designer. I'm also a pretty huge music fan.
I have a habit of writing huge, in detail C+C posts. Please don't take this as me picking away at all of your flaws, and if a post makes me sound arrogant, I assure you I didn't mean it that way.
I'm horn-head-o on deviantArt, but I'm constantly active on my blog The Logbook Project. Most of my art, pixel or not, goes there first, in addition to film and game reviews, RPG actual play, and design work, as well as a ton of music posts. Come say hi!
As a new thing I've been doing on my blog, I've been writing tutorials! However, they're not conventional tutorials. Each week, I take some piece, often from here, and critique it in depth, pointing out the problems and mistakes in someone's piece, not in a harsh or accusing way but in a way to make it clear what one should try to avoid in their own pieces! I go into depth explaining and illustrating the important concepts in ways that make sense to people just starting in pixel art. I prefer to illustrate with the faulty and new rather than by looking to the medium's masters because I think that pointing out what not to do helps foster individual creativity - when you study a master's work, you tend to emulate their style some in your own work, but you rarely adopt the style and trappings of those who taught you with their mistakes. And sometimes I break from the usual and go into traditional tutorial style, but hey, sometimes teaching is tough.
