The pixel art community at DeviantART is growing. In october a new dA pixel art club named Pixel-Pax was started by me (lollige), and is now being run by Metaru, Shonegold and I. More than 120 members, and active challenges and collaborations every day.

Not a member of DeviantART yet?

This might be a good reason to join, helping the pixel community to grow, getting ourselves known by other artists aswell! Submit your pixel works, join pixel-pax.deviantart.com and even more people can see your work now! Also you can immediately join the active Summer/Winter challenge, you might have seen a few entries of that in the PJ galleries.
At the same moment, the pixel art galleries on dA get cleaner every day thanks to the hard work of ShoneGold, the Gallery Director.
See you on dA!

I have gotten great news!
After a lot of comments about the Firefox 3 image filter, that blurs all our images when we zoom 'm, has finally been solved!
On 9 Jan this patch was made by

Anyway, go to the following page to see more about the discussion:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=423756

As far as I understand, this patch needs to get reviewed by some guy named Joe, if he approves it it will get included in the next ff update.

From on that moment, you can switch the filter off by going to the config page:

Type about:config in your browsers address bar

Than search for the following string

gfx.images.smooth_scale

And most likely set it to False

I cant wait for the next ff update! Can you?

So, the first thing what comes in mind when you hear sprite comic?

Crappy stories made with ripped megaman, sonic and mario sprites?  Yes, thats what I said too.

But here is a different one!

Three different stories of three different heroes in the same world. Beautiful detailed double pixel sprites, on non pixel art backgrounds. At the moment there are 124 unique pages, and it is really worth the time to read them all!

Have a look at this webcomic!

Most interesting articles online so far: Pixel art software, coloring linearts and how to fix firefox. Coming soon: An interview with artist ThereIsNoCure and an article about realism in pixel art.
