Hey! Short introduction: I mostly do pixel art and I'll be uploading WIPs and my smaller works onto here.
I'm really interested in meeting people and eventually collaborating with other creators! I don't have a lot of professional experience, but I hope to develop more disciplined practices by interacting with others (let's be friends).

Thank you so much for your support!

(i'll start off the thread with some Cool Kids i drew a while back)

WIP:
pretty new to animation as well, I have a long way to go, but just working on kind of a remake of this thing i did a couple of months back:

WIP
I'm working on a spread of different pixels that will showcase my different styles. The first two (from the left) are finished, the last one is still in progress.

They all feature the same 5 colour palette!

What kind of stuff would you say you want to work toward in the future?

Thank you so much! Ideally, I want to get to a point where I can confidently collaborate with others to make a game. Any kind of game really, I just get really excited about seeing my work applied to something other than for an aesthetic (don't get me wrong, making things just to look cool is a perfectly valid reason to make things, I just want to expand my breadth).

To get to that point, I definitely need to work on improving my animation, tiling, backgrounds, etc (all of the things pixel artists need to be good at). Maybe beyond that, I can finally buckle down, learn programming, other methods of rendering, and even spearhead my own projects? That seems so far ahead of me though, haha.

Short term goals are to meet other creators and start off on smaller collaborative projects : art trades, crossovers, things like that! I hope I answered your question correctly.

Yup, thanks for the answer.

I love what you're doing here, so if you're interested in an art trade I'd be totally willing (even though my work is pretty much on the other side of the art spectrum).

I'd be open to an art trade as well! Your renderings are really great! Sorry that I don't have the vocabulary to talk about your work more extensively, other than "wow! neat! rad!", but, those words are genuine if anything else, huah huah.
Just let me know what you're interested in!

I'm glad you like it! She's really fun to draw, honestly. It makes the process go a lot faster, haha.

bonus points if you can guess who it is (tbh it's probably better if you don't know who she is)

She was the first planeswalker I ever pulled, and honestly, she's one of my favorites. :')

Amazing! I love it.

I'm a little behind on the trade it looks like, but I'll be finished it this weekend

No rush! I just got really excited and finished it really quickly :'). I'm glad that you like how it turned out!

WIP
an oc me and my roommate made in a drunken haze that i'm honestly a little fond of. She even has her own theme song!

♪ Fish Baroness, Fish Baroness/
She rules with an iron fist/
And a proud and sturdy, barrel chest/
Yielding power that won’t desist/
Fish Baroness! ♪

My true dream is to make a fish dating simulator, where you can romance all kinds of fish nobility and barter your way to upperclass status. idk who would want to play, but I'd just be happy knowing it was out there.

우우우우 난 너여야만 해, 너여야 너여야 너여야, 너여야만 해 ~

I've been in a weird 'draw girls longing and nostalgic' phase. oops!
idk if anyone's interested in my processes, but this is one of the very first steps: cleaning up the first sketch!
I usually don't pay extra attention to the hands or feet because they involve so many lines and it gets pretty confusing when colouring. I save them for last, which works out because they're pretty fun to draw.

I think one of the great things about Newgrounds is how involved the community can be. I know sometimes it can be hard to engage in collabs because you feel like your skills aren't good enough, but just talking with other users on the site can be really reassuring. Of course, you know your limitations the best, but if you ever feel like reaching out (for any kind of trade or collab), I'd definitely be open to it! Thank you so much for your kind words.
