how was this made? Like, what designing software?
Who is the artist? I would love to see more work like this, so any link for more would be greatly appreciated.
I'm the artist. This is my first digital painting I've done, but I plan on making more. You can find my art on tumblr @ 8pxl and on twitter @ 16pxl
Reminds me of Kingdom Hearts. Lovely!
heya! hope u enjoy! this was made on a 135x135px canvas for anyone curious!
check out my twitter
very inspired by the wonderful artists at studio ghibli!
ETA: Thanks so much for the gold!
Why do people say how long it took them. Why does that matter?
It doesn’t, I like to put it because I time myself :D
Just looked at your art on your Twitter. This is everything I want to learn how to do. From the color palettes to the composition. Gorgeous. I’m legit gonna have to gank some of your palettes.
no problemo, you can use my palettes all ya want! and thank you my compositions are usually jst aesthetic trash haha

it kinda looks like it! but nah not really inspired by anywhere !
i dont really like the color blue but idk fits my mood lately i guess
Aaaahhhhh! I can't understand how to do this ;-; I've been wanting to do trees and such but I just can't grasp the shading and leaves and such
You are not alone my friend, I don't even know how to use the proper colors I need online help for that like Adobe colors... I would take a entire day to that and I doubt it would be the same haha... Sad...
Don’t feel down! I’ve been doing pixel art for a few years now, and I’ve put a lot of time studying into my work. Right now I’m working on speed specifically that’s why it’s so fast usually takes me a lot longer but I sacrifieced quality for time. Colors are very difficult for me still but it gets easier. Usually the only thing I do that really helps with color is remembering to color shift. Cool for shadows and warm for highlights. Adding those will really help your artwork pop.
Thank you! Textured have been very hard for me to grasp, a lot of it is realizing that it’s all the persons interpretation it might look exactly like leaves or grass or clouds upclose but if you put enough of those small details it pulls everything together. For me I don’t like ridiculously noisy texture so I go for more rounded shapes.
Mentioned on twitter but didn't say how much i love all the birds, brings a lot of life to the gif.
I know that comparison is cliché and overused AF but that literally looks like 2D Dark Souls.
It's DS fan art, so that makes sense.
What program do you use?
I'm a sucker for sunsets but don't usually use such saturated colors, so I wanted to do that lol. I like the results pretty okay! Original piece took 3.5 hrs, took about an hr to edit the colors, add different clouds and add some texturing to the background mtns.

Beautiful colors! 💕
Inspired by Garden of the Gods in Colorado! Used a few different photos as reference, jst googled garden of the gods tbh! anyways i really like the midground lol.
you can follow my twitter if ya want
You should have an Instagram account
I do have one! It’s @8pxl_
Good composition. You've got a low colour style and works well. Is the sky dithering auto generated? When the rest of the image is very flowing and or chaotic it follows the sky dithering should also have that quality.
Nah not autogenerated! I do it w some line brushes to save time tho! Hard to find a quick organic dithering pattern tbh! still working on it!
With pixel art I find that rushing anything is a bad idea. Take your time and complete your masterpiece in 4 hours instead of 2.5.
My Mt. Ranier took me 80ish hours.
Yea I’m trying to do the opposite and speed up my process so I can deliver commissions in a more timely manner 😄
Reminds me of southern California!
its a mishmash of san diego and western washington in my mind :D
Noob here, do you have to select every pixel or can you like lasso?
I draw every pixel pixel by pixel I’ve never known a lasso trick
Nice atmospheric perspective!!
thank you so much!

Yeah, it’s u/softwaring.
you can really tell how much effort you've put into this piece, it's amazing!
One o my favs from you 💕
Very pleasant and well pixeled
hey thanks! plopped em there all by myself.
Really great, realistic clouds are quite difficult to convey well in pixel art and these look superb.
Thank you! I'm glad my effort is paying off!
i love your art and your ladies so much
This is beautiful! The texturing is really cute.
this is soooo beautiful
I need to practice cutting down my color palettes more but i just luv muddy colors way too much lol
eta: 55 colors and this took 1.5 hrs total, you can see the last hour of me drawing it on my twitch
I love the colours on the back mountain. Seems like an amazing place to be.
Rainier is gorgeous, hope you get to visit one day, it's life changing!
Oh boy! It felt like i was looking at a real picture! Feels like its uncommon with these kinds of pixel art...
thank you! im pretty proud of the thumbnail!
