SuperGuy 9000 -> Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 16:40:07)

Do NOT say MS Paint.
I've recently gotten interested in Pixel Art, and I was wondering if there might be a free program out there specifically made for the purpose of pixel art. So, I decided to be lazy and ask the Gallery if they already knew of such a program. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.




Dracelix -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 16:42:01)

adobe photoshop is a great program to use for artwork using pixels.
or you could use macromedia fireworks
or you could use paint shop pro
or you could use gimp
or you could use paint.net
or you could use paint

Paint is very good for Pixel Art. So if you say no MS paint then your out of luck there. Paint .net might work. But your really not gonna get any good free ones made for pixel art. I have actully never heard of ANY "programs made specifically made for the purpose of pixel art." Just go with paint its good for what your doing and its free. (Sumo Paint might work, second page of gallery Q/A for link to it)




Chaddledee -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 17:27:14)

In all seriousness, Paint is your best bet.




SuperGuy 9000 -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 17:29:19)

Damn. Paint it is. Lock please.




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 17:59:28)

paint is the best art software out there, not just for pixel art, but for any kind of art

Besides G.I.M.P. that is. You could just go with G.I.M.P. after all. It has tools for single pixel brushing and anti aliased brushing as well.




Umbrageous -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 18:35:37)

Um, If you guys want my opinion... Paint is Good.
But Graphics Gale is Like Paint on Steroids, you dont have to use paint if you dont want to
and you dont need commercial programs if you dont have the money

I like it because of the Killer Grid Feature

dxb105 -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:42:11)

for simple pixle art mabey but for advanced things that need filters and other fun stuff gimp is da bomb




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:49:39)

pssh anything that can be done in gim can be done in paint




dxb105 -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:57:00)

Fine do my sig in paint with a diffrent render and colors




Sanguine -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:57:01)

How can anyone believe such a thing. Paint is limited and can't even do a fourth of what GIMP can do. Show me the best Paint art and I'll show you the best GIMP art and the GIMP art will be drastically better.




dxb105 -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:59:16)

However Paint can be used to draw nicly gimp has better interface and tool paint cant even use trasparncy Gimp better to use Paint can be easier but takes longer and harer for NICE art in colors




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 21:59:27)

you couldn't do this in gimp if your life depended on it

it's interface is way more user friendly, making it better for the purpose intended in this thread.

i clearly proved this to be true with the two images i provided




Sanguine -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:06:44)

Though the first one isn't bad for a digital painting, the second one looks like an image with a crappy pasted background, and Griatch at GimpTalk could blow both of those out of the water.

2nd post: http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/the-gimptalk-biweekly-art-competition-p244067.html

Try topping those.




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:10:31)

lol this beats everything there

Sanguine -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:13:15)

But the person wasn't done in paint. That's just a picture that was pasted on to a background with lopsided, green flames.




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:14:28)

says who?
http://clayscence.deviantart.com/art/fairy-in-ms-paint-step-by-step-57816873

same artist:

Sanguine -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:24:20)

I'm still not convinced. Especially because the characters are amazing, I give you that. But why would such a skilled artist not create a better background. Really, lopsided flames and lgihtning, or whatever that's supposed to be.

If anything, the artist probably pasted in various features of the drawings, as it appears in the Angelina Jolie piece, and then filled in the rest.




Ferfo -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:25:44)

because he gets lazy? or wants thew focus to be the character?
makes sense to me.

btw, i lol at your excuses (:




Sanguine -> RE: Free pixel art program? (12/23/2008 22:29:18)

Really...

http://clayscence.deviantart.com/art/detailed-woman-in-MS-paint-49779024

...good right...

http://www.skybird.net/Harley/britney.jpg

I'm telling you, I don't believe it.

BTW: Excuses are justifications for that which has yet to be proven... So until you can prove to me those were created in Paint, I will create excuses.
