An Introduction to PixelsPixel Art Week
Have you ever wanted to create pixel art but you just don't know where to start?
Well, I hope to fix that. I am going to do all of the research for you, to help you make your own decision.
The Definition of Pixel Art... is one under a great deal of debate.
First lets look at the definition as given by, Techopedia.
"Pixel art is a form of digital art wherein images are created and edited at the pixel level using a graphics editing software. What defines pixel art is its unique visual style, where individual pixels serve as the building blocks that make up the image. The effect is a visual style very similar to that of mosaic art, cross-stitch and other types of embroidery techniques."
Many say that you can only use the "pixel tool". Well what is this tool that they speak of and why does it not exist in my art program? Well it d


How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!I am using deviant arts own help topic found here http://help.deviantart.com/81/. I will be expanding upon what they have with examples, to make it easier to understand. Just so you know I am using their outline and explanation, if you would like to know which parts were mine and which are theirs just go to the site above :D
How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
There are a few formats you can use, either a link of the users name, displaying the members avatar, or by linking with a personal description. 
Avatar linking
:iconusername: will display the member's or group's avatar as a link to their page. Remember, however, that the limit for posting blocks of avatars is sixty four per post, and this will not work in signatures.
This seems easy enough, here I will use my own name. :iconamarantheans: will give you :iconamarantheans: 
Username linking

Introducing neurotype
:iconneurotype:
Call me norpadorp.
I joined DeviantArt back in the day on a friend’s recommendation. Mainly to browse art, but one of my earliest memories using this site is repeatedly submitting to the Pixel Art category because I had no idea what ‘Indie Art’ was.
By the time I figured it out, I was part of a community I hadn’t expected to be a part of. My parents support art as recreation; my first exposure to the world of professional artists and art criticism was here. Without meeting the people I met here, I can confidently say that I never would have gone beyond fanfiction parodies as a writer, taken more than a couple of drawing c
