Your argument is completely understandable, especially when you work so hard on your pixel art! Please don't feel bad for voicing your respects for difficult traditional pixel work, it's wonderful to read and definitely should not be deleted if it's something that bothers you!! It's good for people to know what is a correct definition for forms of art/terminology and what it takes to accomplish that!
ahh thank you anon T_T (tho i kno i should work harder on my pixels and work on more complicated stuff like bgs haha maybe more animation again lol >_< ) I’m just honestly scared to post a lot of my opinions on tumblr haha ><;; Thank you for the encouragement!! TT__TT I really appreciate it ;_;
just gonna let out a big pet peeve of mine lol you can ignore
pixel art is about limited palettes!! if you use the gradient or blending tool, lower the opacity wtv anything that will let the program auto pick colors for you then IT IS NOT PIXEL ART!! i’m not being elitist here cuz this is literally the definition of pixel art T_T you can look it up if you don’t believe me..
you have to anti-alias by hand!! you can’t have an auto anti-aliasing tool do it for you! (by anti-aliasing i mean smoothing out rough edges in pixels)
if you use these tools (gradient, blur, blending) what you create is of course still art BUT it’s just not PIXEL art T_T just because u use the binary tool doesn’t make it pixel art
please have ..more respect to the form..it’s really really hard to manually pick colors and anti-alias by hand T_T also if you still want gradients in ur pixels that’s cool! but it is possible to create the same effect if u do it by hand! you just have to be waay more careful with color choices
and honestly if you want to improve the best way is with practice…tutorials wont magically make u a master or anything. though they can give more comprehensive background on a program or different medium, etc…
here is a good tutorial for introducing and explaining pixel art more: http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=11299
I don’t want to discourage anyone lol I’m just letting off some steam after years of seeing a trend in the rise of popularity of this type of “pixel” art with really…up to 800 or 1000 colors….ahha im sorry if i seem rly pissy T_T
