(i certainly should have done this earlier, but well)
I'm Sylvain, which is hard to speak in anything else than French, so you can just call me "Pype". And the "Bros." is a reference to my fanship to SuperMario, Yoshi and Zelda games -- and to the fact that i'm currently working on games for the Nintendo DS system.
I'm more a coder than a pixel artist, and that since the age of 10 (roughly speaking) on the antic (but venerated) Commodore 64. I'm interested in drawing since even earlier, but i never really took painting course, unfortunately. I sometimes manage to put some nice pixels together, but i certainly still have much to learn in this area. Hue shifting ... saturation slider ... dynamic poses... All terms that i never heard of before signing up on this board. I'm somehow in quest for the "golden rules" of pixelation, but i'm nearly 30 years old, too, so i might give you the feeling of a lazy bastard not putting enough pride on his work while i'm simply too busy doing the washing up and gardening
I also suck at pixelating with a mouse on a regular painting program and stay away from Windows OS (so if you see fresh pixels of mine, it's likely meaning that it's been pixelated on the Nintendo DS itself
), so i hope you'll stand my poor habbit of doing comments on gameplay, gaming hardware and the like, while i should maybe focus more on pure graphics aspects.
