Since this whole pixel art thing is only a hobby of mine, the main reason why I don't use GraphicsGale is because it costs money.  It is, however, what I would get if I was willing to spend money on stuff like this.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 Peon) at 10/30/2014 9:27:00 AM

I use Game Maker 7's sprite editor.

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 10/30/2014 7:42:00 AM

I still use paint.net with the animation helper plugin. I never really got used to Graphics gale but I got the impression it was more cumbersome to use for animation than my slightly hacky method. I might be completely wrong in thinking this however


user
fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 10/30/2014 7:38:00 AM

I basically did the same, picked some at random


user
Zizka (Level 7 Assassin) at 10/30/2014 7:05:00 AM

Graphicsgale is the best pixel program I've ever come across. It's also cheap and highly customizable. You're missing out! 


user
BathMaster_2000 (Level 1 Intern) at 10/30/2014 6:41:00 AM

It seems to me that everyone uses GraphicsGale. I've never gotton used to it, and I still use Paint.NET for everything. Anyone think I should make a switch?

While I like Dvorak, my favorite remains Chopin. I never get tired of listening to it. 


user
Zizka (Level 7 Assassin) at 10/29/2014 11:06:00 AM

I listened to a whole album of Tim Maia. I have to admit at first I didn't like it much but I had set my mind on giving it a chance and listening to the whole thing. 

Well, it's actually strangely soothing. Thanks for sharing. Always good to discover new music. 

@Peyton: Ah, I've listened to Nirvana so much it's imprinted in my brain. 

I had completely forgotten about Blind Melon! Good memories that (1993, holy!).

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 10/28/2014 9:58:00 AM

Pixel art related can be many things. I did mean Manxana's game but I find a certain pixelart 'thang' to that video by dont too.


user
Dennis (Level 4 Murderer) at 10/28/2014 8:41:00 AM

"all these things" is plural so it can not refer to a single item.


user
Zizka (Level 7 Assassin) at 10/28/2014 6:43:00 AM

I might be wrong but I think jal was referring to manxana's game. 


user
Dennis (Level 4 Murderer) at 10/28/2014 6:34:00 AM

Well, kohina has been around for at least 10 years I think so it does not qualify as content for a "news" item.


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) at 10/27/2014 11:16:00 PM

Thought they had to be pixel-art related?


user
Peyton (Level 6 Made) at 10/27/2014 9:23:00 PM

I listen to Blind Melon, Nirvana, or something like that usually.

Also, I sometimes listen to hebrew hip-hop...

Or you're just another more or less heroic dumbass getting eaten to keep a hungry dragon alive.


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) at 10/25/2014 4:57:00 PM

But it's funny, even as you slay the dragon, its blood stains you forever. You are not the same man thereafter, and so it will have done its due influence on you just another way, a "necessary evil", its fulfilled function in the story to progress as you will, that made you the hero to write home about, for it to live on in your epic tale. And maybe this also gives you solace in knowing that some day a slayer will come for you, the new old dragon in the way... and maybe it's a woman!


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) at 10/25/2014 4:42:00 PM

But that too is an age old contention throughout philosophy: knowledge is opportunity of freedom as mach as restrictive prison. Knowing culture enables you to do, but also guides your hand almost "as if it's not your own". There are times you build upon what you know to reach ever greater heigths on the shoulders of other giants, and times you slay a dragon keeping you from a treasure. The trick is finding out whether what you know is giant or dragon to you. Well, "whatever works" for you, as he would say, the old man in the sky, smoking pot.


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) at 10/25/2014 4:06:00 PM

There is this smidge of irony though that looking into it sorta goes against his own rants of advice. =p In a way his worded advice too, as his art, is his own treaded trail that's not necessarily for everyone. You see, going to its dead serious conclusion is getting a bit paranoid. =D "Oh noes, the influences are ruining my originality!" lol. It's a natural part of life and work. So there's probably a personal line how far to take the dosis, freedom in how to go about it, and I think he also indicated that with a wink. I do sympathize a lot, since I feel reminded of at least moments alike in my own line of work. So maybe that indicates it's a greater principle abstract enough not to be much of an "oppressive" fixation on its own but alongside.

user
Mandrill (Level 6 Manager) at 10/25/2014 2:00:00 PM

And that is one of the reasons why I think that Paul Bonner is one of the best (fantasy) artists ever.

Have you heard of his book, Out of the Forest?


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) at 10/25/2014 1:45:00 PM

There are a couple of points in it worth a discussion. For example that tension between pros and cons of looking up references. And I was particularly amused when he mentioned something about a purist rulebook in the water colouring scene. Muddy Colours may be the exact opposite school of PixelArt, but both are schools of magic, and it would seem an illusionist of any school has his heart on the same side of chest. =)


user
Mandrill (Level 6 Manager) at 10/25/2014 1:42:00 PM

Ahh, too kind RAV, cheers. I miss you guys too.

And yes! Bonner is the man!

I'm surely not gone, just got no internet until the 5th or 6th November. I'm staying at a friends house from time to time in order to keep me up to date.


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) at 10/25/2014 1:19:00 PM

I found this little opinion piece by Paul Bonner pretty interesting. There are a couple things of general wisdom I'd relate to even as a coder.

Looked him up because of Mandrill's latest piece mentioning him. I miss Mandrill. He and Bobston and Cels make an entertaining chatter tag team.

Ok, gehen wir einfach alle dazu über in unserer jeweiligen Muttersprache zu schreiben. Dann besteht auch nicht mehr die Gefahr, dass so etwas wie ein Gedankenaustausch überhaupt erst zu stande kommen kann und so lebt dann jeder glücklich in seiner eigenen Welt.

Auf der anderen Seite bietet sich dadurch die Chance weitere Sprachen zu lernen, wobei das natürlich auch schwierig ist, wenn man nur den Text sieht und nicht weiss, wie etwas betont oder ausgesprochen wird.
