Any chance of seeing your Firefly or some Dr Who pixel art in your society6 shop? It would be awesome!
Me:

I was thinking about putting some new items in my shop, so I’ll think about it!

Your artwork is wonderful and I had to let you know. Loved the "Staying at Home" picture :D Have you been working in pixel art long?
Me:

Thanks! :)

I started playing with pixels in 2011, but it was just for fun as I was more focused in animation and illustration then. I really began to put some thoughts and effort into it last christmas.

I never heard of pixel art, and I can't remember how I found this blog, but it's fantastic! You really are amazing.
Me:

Wow, thanks *0_0*
But I have to say, I do not post my own art very often, so it’s mostly thanks to all the amazing pixel art artists around here. My blog would be very boring if it was just my own stuff. ^^’

Hi! Your pixel art is awesome. I loved your Hannibal vs Supernatural gif and I was wondering if it'd be OK if I used the sprites to make a cross-stitch pattern, with appropriate credit and purely for my own use (although if you'd be interested I could also post it for you to see and share with people)?
Me:

Sure! You’ve said it all, as long as you credit me if you post it somewhere and if it’s not for commercial use, then it’s not a problem. I would love to see the result! :)

Hey! You're a huge inspiration to me and I was wondering if you would mind stopping by my blog and telling me what you think? And some constructive criticism maybe? There's really not much there, but I just got introduced to pixel art and I love it so there'll be way more eventually! If you can't find the time or don't want to, that's cool too!
Me:

Oh, I’m flattered! I’m not sure am I the best person to give any criticism, but I can try. ^^’

If what I see on your blog are your first pixels, I think you are doing great! Their animation is very simple but it works. They could probably benefit from being a bit more fluid, but it will come with time and practice. Starting small and testing things are the best way to go about it, and you are doing just that.

To go further, I guess it depends on what you want to do with your art, whether you want to do illustration, animation, video games, or just have fun with pixels… So on a more general basis, I can only tell you what I do myself: Look at the work of other artists. Studying the basics of animation can help a lot (like Richard Williams animator’s survival kit for example), as taking some of your favorite animated pixel art gifs in Photoshop and looking at them frame by frame. Work from references. Practice as much as possible, try different techniques and styles.

Voilà. I hope it helps a little. :)

Pixel all the things!

“He had heard about talking to plants in the early seventies, on Radio Four, and thought it was an excellent idea. Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did.
 What he did was put the fear of God into them.
 More precisely, the fear of Crowley. 
In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt or browning, or just didn’t look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the other plants. “Say goodbye to your friend,” he’d say to them. “He just couldn’t cut it… “
Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large, empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.
 The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. Also the most terrified.” - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett, Good OmensI always think about this quote when I take care of my plants. Clearly mine do not fear me enough. HD
