I read a comment once that stuck with me. It wasn't directed at my pixel art but I still think about it. It was something like: 'pixel art has to be minimal because the closer to realism you get, the more you're just making a low-resolution painting.'
I definitely think I have walked that line myself, having gone too far with the blending and having had to limit the colours and steer it back into the realm of pixels. I don't think there's anything wrong with detailed pixel art of course and anyone can make what they want; there aren't rules.

So I'm just curious to see if anyone has any examples of their ultimate favourite pixel works.

On the minimal end of things, I've always appreciated this:
Pixelart Decals by syosa

On the other, crazy detailed side, I have always loved Metal Slug's hermit crab:

Also this, which is mildly terrifying and I don't know where to place it but I like it:…
