I don't know if this topic is kinda relevant to the Sprites Thread since I wanted to ask about something related towards 8-Bit and 16-Bit Pixel Art. I am about to get into Project 202 in DigiPen Institute of Technology for Game Arts along with taking Computer Graphics 201 and 225 which are 2D Computer Design and 3D Computer Design. I did used a Pixel Art Program on my Android Phone was 8bit Painter from Google Play Store. I was wondering what recommended Art Program (or a Pixel Art Program) for Windows Computers do I use to make good Pixel Art program to make it some Pixel Arts feel like NES, TurboGrafx-16, Sega Master System, SNES, and Sega Genesis consoles used? I do have Paint.NET and did tested it out on two Treasure Chests in 8-Bit and 16-Bit that feels too small to see and I wanted to make some like retro styled video games for the final project for a team based game like the Indie Video Games like Shovel Knight as an example.
UPDATE: please read the latest posts of the thread to follow with our current discussion. We now have a poll on events that have been discussed, please vote for all you would like to see/participate in, and please share your event idea if you have a suggestion! :) Original outdated post... From a recent Skype conversation ...had this idea at school today. What are your thoughts, peoples?We would celebrate artists, critics, commenters and people who give back to the community in various ways by nominating and voting for categories like for example... "Best Sprite Art of the Year" "Best Artist of the Year" "Best new artist" "Most improved artist" "Best commenter" "Best Critic of the Year" "Most helpful commenter" "Community Friend: individual who has contributed the most to the Sprite Art Community this year" These are of course rough ideas... Any suggestions on either better ones, better titles, or just how you might like this process to go in general? Probably would have separate categories for Portrait, Battle Sprites, Animations, Maps... Any other potential ones? ...my reasons behind creating this discussion/proposing these awards, BTW, are not for any sort of self-congragulatory BS, or back-patting shenanigans (like for instance not sure if people should be allowed to nominate themselves for categories :\) but because... Well, I really like this community. :0 For all our arguments/differences of opinion we also have a ton of creativity, great art, strong desires to learn and improve, and people who are super helpful in various ways... And I think that is worthy of recognition and celebration. So that... Maybe some of the lesser known artists get encouraged/recognition of their awesome stuff,and some of the people who have been around for a while, even if they mainly comment get celebrated for their efforts and contribution to these forums as well. :) Anyways... I would love to hear your thoughts, guys! :D Is this a good idea, how would you like to see it set up? BTW also... When would work best timewise for this? ...would it work to have voting closer to Christmas or the New Year? Should it happen earlier/later? Please lemme know! ;) Edit: had some good feedback in a recent chat. Edit: so some new ideas and poll for them, loving the feedback and discussion... Keep it coming. :D
