Completely agree!Crush wrote:When I started to work on the woodland tileset my experience with pixel art was zero. But with the help of the other artists working on TMW, by reading tutorials and by studying pixel art from commercial games I improved a lot.
My first TMW pixel art was the Zombie (before that I hadn't done pixel art in 10yrs and a didn't remember a thing)... When making the zombie, I only examined pixel art from other games a small bit... but it's true... you really have to study and truly examine the techniques of the pixel gods out there and others and partner with other artists to get pointers from them to improve, it's a process like anything. It takes a hell of a lot of patience, but ANYONE can be a pixel artist by reading, attempting, and soliciting feedback.
One thing I wish I had done is be sneaky like Crush and hide my name into one of my pieces
