@orange-hair-boi Thanks! Not my palette though, it's a default Playscii one.
@ckelsallpxls If i do more i'll keep that in mind, and thank you!
@skeddles Thanks a lot! I'm mainly a pixel artist so i guess it shows through lol, also forgot to add to the post that the palette is a default Playscii one.
@taks Thank you!
Tried out Textmode art recently, this was the result (did one experimental one before this). Feel free to give thoughts/comments/critique etc, enjoy!
Eclipse here, fairly new (1 year~) hobbyist pixel artist, and big time space enthusiast- links to all my socials in my signature, looking forward to being more active on here as the site improves!
Thaneco and Harris Heller have been some cool finds recently, electronic/lo-fi/etc stuff is great for listening to while drawing
This feature may already exist and i just haven't found it, but if not could there be a way to ''mute'' a thread that you've replied to à la Twitter? Continuing to get notifications for dozens of comments after your own could get to be quite annoying. Also a small possible bug report would be the ''Watching'' and ''Sort by'' buttons being unresponsive in the Pixel art section.
Entered the medium using the Pixilart editor (Free + the first one to come up in a google search) and soon after, switched to Aseprite- never wanted another editor again, Aseprite has pretty much every tool you could want for pixel art and animation (Excluding a dither tool- still would like that) and with a pixel art UI, feels really nice to use also. If you're using any random free online editor, i highly recommend switching to Aseprite for a great editor made specifically for pixel art. (I know this sounds like a sales pitch lol, i just really love Aseprite over the alternatives)
There are so many names i could drop here in terms of art quality and skill, but personally a few favorites of mine are Slynyrd (https://twitter.com/rayslynyrd), Slinky (https://www.instagram.com/slinkpixel/), N2D (https://twitter.com/norma_2d), Yes-I-Do (https://twitter.com/Contra_Bonos) and Vierbit (https://twitter.com/vierbit)
Not directly toolset/workflow related but learning how to make my own palettes made everything so much easier. I had always thought if i was to use my own colors i'd pick new colors for every single drawing, so i held off on it for awhile since it was easier to just use palettes from other artists- after the epiphany of realizing i could just make 16 or 32 color palettes and use them whenever i was lazy, or didn't feel like picking new colors it got so much easier to fully transition to using solely my own colors.
