In my continuous effort to focus this tumblr on quality pixel art, both with my own pieces as well as with community features, I’ll start posting what will eventually become a directory of great pixel artists that anyone at any level can look up to for inspiration.
As you’re hopefully used to by now, my posts go for quality over quantity so don’t expect this to be anything but semi-regularly. This will add to the monthly PixelJoint Top Pixel Art feature that was received very warmly and I want to thank you for all the likes and reblogs.
All questions and comments are always welcome via the ask box, post replies or tumblr fan mail.
I’m preparing my own pixel art of 2013 post, but I just found this tool that shows your most popular posts for each month. So here’s what original posts (not reblogs) you guys liked best this year on Retronator:
Higher, Drier Socks (Super Mario 64 Re-imagining)
by Zackery Wilson
From the man himself:
"Dire, Dire Docks" is one of the greatest video game tunes ever written and, subsequently, one of the most heavily remixed video game tunes of all time. Admittedly, we really don’t need another remix. But I ask: do we need an absolute dismantling (past the point of recognition) of a tune we’ve all adored since childhood? Eh, probably not, but I went ahead and made one anyway. :)
