(Note: I'm french. So... bad. English.)

Hey you, if you are looking for a good pixel-art, go away. I am bad at this. Really ! I use other people's palettes, I use paint.net (but I don't even know how to use it...)... In short: I am NOT an artist. I just made this account because I really like this forum :D
