the best tip that i can give you is to try making small projects to practice, game jams are good to this
@sidly-shorts 8-bit is a measure of computer information generally used to refer to hardware and software in an era where computers were only able to store and process a maximum of 8 bits per data block. This limitation was mainly due to the existing processor technology at the time, which software had to conform with
you draw things occasionally.
@stahli-5 said in What made you start creating pixel art?:
My first interaction with pixel art was with metal slug, i was from the playstation era and used to play metal slug with my cousins, it was one of my favorite game, but i never payd atention to the artstyle.
I started making pixel art when i discovered the zoom feature in paint, i did a really bad and big sword, but i never tried do anything more, until a friend showed me the magic world of emulation, he teached me how to use emulators and gave me a pokemon rom, i played pokemon everyday and aways thinked about the art style made out of squares, this was whe i started making pixel art.
I still remember searching for "pokemon game boy cores" (cores mean colors in portuguese) i tried to imitate the pokemon art style and that was it, i slowly improved and i'm doing pixel art until nowadays.
