Feature time! #4

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 31, 2016, 4:06 AM
It's that time again! October was the first month of working full-time on Pixel Art Academy and it's … wonderful. The closest I've been to feeling like this was during Summer breaks in primary and high school. It's just wonderful.

October was a great month for pixel art. bbrunomoraes came up with #octobit for a pixel art version of #inktober and the pixel art community delivered. I mean, we even got some new art from people that haven't done a piece in a while, like raynoa. I've done a series of portraits to practice a bit too. 

Anyway, here's a very hard selection of my favorites from the last month or so.

(Instructions: click on the first image and use arrow keys to go through the selection. And do let me know of artists I'm missing!)

Mushroom Trees by kirokaze Day 04 - Music! by bbrunomoraes VirtuaVerse - Pillstreet by Valenberg (Animated) Octobit - Day 05! by bbrunomoraes Trailer park 3000 by NoNoKoHime Pixel art cartoon portrait by archipics lusamine by Wilacoro Lorina by RHLPixels Crimson castle by kirokaze Greigus by Sky-Burial 332/365 pixel art : Tank by igorsandman Day #206 - Billy Blaze (Commander Keen) by JINNdev Steam Pugilists by vertibirdo yatatatatata by okuet Scene #35: 'Pumpkins' by octavinavarro Salty Dog Bar and Gambling House by RHLPixels My cats and me! by Raiyumi Car fo sale by 1Eni1 Wicke by Wilacoro The Ol Tree by call-me-Hk Carrion by Sky-Burial Phoenix by arina-ivanova-1999 Little Robot by KimiDax10 Swamp location by drysmian Pixeltober Day 05 Lonely by Deathares Shovel Knight by AlbertoV Blaze octobit by raynoa Octobit - Day 03! by bbrunomoraes Deer by 1Eni1 The last day of Tugotrons by vertibirdo Scene #34: 'Lighthouse' by octavinavarro Creya by Cyangmou Wip Shrine by skittlefuck Special Forces by HendryRoesly hamster bunny racing by pop-nebula-dreamer Renault FT17 by 1Eni1 Red lights by kirokaze
