And oh yeah, I've already started experimenting, but it kind of sucks. I think I just need alot more practice. Tell me what you think about my first piece of pixel art.

I found a tutorial on Pixel art (http://www.derekyu.c...as/pixel01.html) that is pretty cool. If you're just getting into it, check it out. I personally don't have the patience (and probably the talent) to get into this kind of stuff, but maybe someday I'll try. I love the look of pixel art, it just seems like a bitch to make.
I actually did look through that exact tutorial from the exact website. It's a really good tutorial to inform me of all the basics. I just need more practice I guess. I think the piece of shizz looks pretty good.

I thought "pixel art" was just the process of creating and/or shading a drawing pixel by pixel, as it appears was done in that Pikachu drawing.
I liked your old avatar better.
The thing about pixel art is you want it to be instantly recognizeable as pixel art, which means using much bigger pixels than were used in that Pikachu drawing. The pikachu is really good by most standards, it's just not pixel-y enough. I recommend throwing some really gross Photoshop filters at it.
Take your time old man, these vultures are happy to wait...

I used colored cardstock taped to the wall because the variety of colors was easier to find. I had them industrially cut at kinkos.
You used large colored post-it notes ?
I think megaman was with 2.5x2.5" and the others were 2x2. I cut enough squares to do a hardhat guy, protoman, and Wiley as well but I ran out of desire and wallspace. These actually took a ton of work, especially gutsman and airman because they are a lot of pixels.
