I have been a Pixel Artist for nearly 14 years now since getting the dumb idea of doing a Sprite comic after being inspired by one of the classic Sprite Comics of Bob and George which was why one of my oldest designs was a Megaman Seven edit.
I have since given up on doing comics after falling into some writers block but kept on creating more original 16-bit style Pixel art for characters I have created.
As well as a lot of avatars for myself for usage on here and discord.
With MSPaint near death announcement I actually opened it up again and decided to create an RPG text box style sprite as an avatar based on my “Shaded Spriter” character.
I still haven’t gotten my shading techniques back up to scratch yet. But I am hoping my skills come back the more I continue to draw more.
