Hello hello peers, programmers, and lovers of the pixel art. The corny introduction is followed by a mini biography right? Ah, well then let us proceed;
For fear of being hunted down one day by an internet stalker the name I've chosen to go by on the world wide web is CJ (Which is very close to my actual name, irony?). Joking aside, I've been a lurker on these forums for God knows how long now. Always thought to myself 'Ah well I can't fit in with these guys. They're too good, I'm lacking something essential to be apart of this community!' but I figured I should put an end to this train of thought immediately, four-three years of lurking and here I am; putting an end to that thought, funny when I think about it.
A big fan of art though. It's amazing to me how a gorgeous piece of art can be made with Sculpting, or how one pixel can go on to lead a beautiful outcome of a highly appreciated piece. Though I'm not lacking in the self-confidence department, my pixel art isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Of course I'm not that bad and I do have my days where I'm on my game, there has to be some way to improve myself so that these "some" days become practically everyday right? Joining this community I feel as though I can achieve that. Reading through numerous threads over the years you guys give top notch criticism whether it be harsh or kind it provides the artist great insight on what he/she could/should do with there piece or next one. There are plenty of artists whose work I admire and have, in a sense, motivated me to work harder in my own pixel 'level'. Hopefully this community can provide just that and I'm glad that I've finally decided to join and embrace Pixelation to it's fullest.
