So, guess this serves as an introduction as well...
Always loved the aesthetic of the art in games I enjoyed growing up, and playing Dwarf Fortress made me want to make some of it for myself.
This represents a both a first art and first animation, as well as a first post. Hope to learn a lot more to make it past 17 x 17 art and start making things the eye can distinguish within the next year. Any pointers and criticism to help that goal is greatly appreciated. Also would love some advice on daily/weekly challenges or practice that I can do to help out. Not only new to pixel art, but pretty new to art in general.
