Any pixel artt enthusiasts?

I've been working on developing simple mobile games recently and I'm getting into minimalistic pixel art so I don't have to hire artists.

Post your works and/or inspo.

Fuck me, I wish I could get a pixel artist half as good as that on me team.

This looks fantastic. whats it from?

That's not true pixel art, it's drawing a standard picture and then abstracting it and adding little bits of pixel art here and there to blend it together, then applying the species affects like the little glowing sprites and ambient occlusion to complete the entire effect.

The logic behind it is explained better here

It's still pixel art even if it's based off of other images.

I'm an enthusiast, but a beginner. Got into pixel art by making cursors.

I used to sprite for pokemon sage on /vp/ but I don't have the time or interest to do it anymore. Especially not the time. The interest is more tidal

why is pixel art so comfy?
>>

Just like the music of older games, the pixel art and characters have to focus on simplicity. Through this simplicity, your brain fills in all the missing details of something familiar to you; making it feel like a compete image, or a 3D character depending on how your mind works.

Nostalgia probably also has a bit to do with it.

Holy shit i have no idea why so many people think this game's art style is good.

It's not simple, hard to read, too many stuff going at once.

It's fucking disgusting.

I bet the gameplay is shit too.

It's like Helvetica, classic and comfortable.

Games like this focus on lighting more than character viability. You could actually make this game with lit circles and you would get the same mechanical feel and readability.

Also, you obviously aren't the target market so your opinion doesn't really matter.
