    Hey guys, as a would-be indie developer I've been looking into pixel art and trying to learn how to draw it properly. Now I've already found something interesting here, but I thought I'd ask if any of you could give some awesome advice as to where I should be homing in my research missile?

 

    Thanks in advance.

I recommend forums for advice and critique, particularly Pixelation and Pixeljoint.

I agree, I would just be careful to emphasize that it's game art since Pixeljoint in particular gets picky about artistic purity (like never using manipulation tools, limited pallets) that are less important for game art, where speed and volume are more important.

Ok, thanks again Lorenzo for those forum tips and those links, Prinz Eugn. I've put them on my itinerary list. :)
