Sorry I’m a bit late! Here’s the titlecard for Jontron’s ‘Bootleg pkmn games’. The original version didn’t have the hat. Jon suggested me to add Ash’s hat, but I decided to put a copyright symbol instead ;)

What tips and advice would you give to n aspiring pixel artist? Other people seem to like my stuff but it never looks complete or good enough to me. Do you ever feel this way?

michafrar:

  • Look up REAL sprites from actual games that aspire you. I’d recommend everything from before the GBA era. Try to imitate them, then move on to do your own thing. You can start by modifying sprites, there’s nothing wrong with that! I used to make edits when I was 14.
  • Don’t make pixel art because you want to make a game. Do it because you love the aesthetics, and you love the art.

Am I sometimes unsatisfied? Yes I am. I think every artist gets that feeling sometimes. I feel like that A LOT. However, I don’t wish to make it apparent because it can annoy other people who like your work.

Last thing you want to hear is inspirational artists whine about their own work and have a low self-esteem.

Inspirational artists should give you motivation, not frustration..

This taught me a lot. I will try to stop criticizing my own skills. I:
