Well-known PJer FrankieSmileShow has launched his very own Frankie's Casual Pixel Shack where you learn how to turn screenshots from classic 8-bit or 16-bit games into something new without compromising their existing style. A fantastic way to get into the essentials of pixel art.

Got it. :)

Fantastic idea btw.

Hep mandril, thanks for the edit! But just a correction, the event isn't about me remaking the screenshots, its more about everyone doing it! I just think working on a screenshot is a great way to practice pixel art and want to incite others, especially beginners, to try it as well.

Sorry guys, due to the short period, in which this had to be posted, nobody of the other mods could revise it properly.

I edited it, Franky. I hope you are ok with that. ;)

Jalonso said he couldnt modify it himself,  but since the event was starting in just a few minutes, he published it as-is. I vote we keep it like this tho, its great

Does the news post go through without anyone looking at it? Or did the mods just think that was funny to leave in? I always wondered how it works too :P

Jokes about the parenthetical aside, this is a really fun activity that everyone should consider!

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 6/10/2016 17:09

What a great news post, I am very proud
