Newgrounds.com, a site that used to be only for flash movies/games and music, has now added an art section.
Users can submit up to 20 works of art, and then if an established artist likes your work, they will add it to the gallery. The gallery has 5 sections: Ilustration, Fine Art, 3D Art, Pixel Art, and Other.
You can also choose to allow people to use your art for their works, like games or movies. Really just another way to get your art seen, and by possibly different people. I know some of you already know about it, because I've seen some recognizable art there. They also have a very nice upload/crop system.
Newgrounds News post about the gallery:
Newgrounds Pixel Art Gallery:
Nykra is a 2D platformer adventure game created by pixel artist / indie dev Seth Groom aka ENDESGA.
The game has some great pixel art, and has a week left in it's kickstarter, and could use a little push.

Reddit allows users to create their own communities, and the main subreddit for pixel art has reached this huge milestone. Who even knew that many people were into pixel art?
I skeddles aka Sam Keddy have also taken over as the head moderator of the subreddit. I hope to see some positive changes in the sub going forward, and have lots of ideas.
In celebration (in addition to reddit soon to be releasing a big update), we have several contests going on.
The Lospec Pixel Art Tutorials page is now live!
