Messin' with Pixels

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Pixel art is one of the most fascinating fields of arts for me. It has been one of my favorite mediums besides watercolor, ink and oil.


SNK's Colorful and lovely art style.

My very first introduction to the medium was through Counter Strike 2D. If you rummage through the skins I've made over these years, you'll notice how slowly I've improved. CS2D served to me as a training ground, and it still does. Too bad a good game like this died out like this. 

E5scott was the first person who'll ever teach me the very basics here. He was a nice fellow, and the owner of the club VoxelTronics, which is again, also dead. (the club, not E5scott). He's been inactive for the past 4 years. Wherever you are, thanks a lot buddy!

From then on, pixel art became my main goal to master. After a hiatus of four years, I resumed my work back on.

CS2D maybe dead, but I won't be stopping skinning anytime soon for it. It needs to have it's legacy carried on. One day it may see itself a revival, but until then, I won't let it to be forgotten here. 

Until then, God bless my friend.

    Yup, it's a wonderful medium. But if you wanted to do anything substantial with it you've missed the bus by at least a decade and a half :I

    For what it's worth though, the doom community could always use some more decent sprite artists. Could be a nice transition if ever you were looking for one
    And they've been around for about thirty years, I think it's safe to say they won't give up any time soon :)
