Thanks you SO much for putting together this list :)
Here is what I've made so far... just two images:

This one is like a Final Fantasy IV sprite or some shit... 16x16
Image
This one is like fucking RPG Maker 2k or 2k3 sprite (the body is modeled after it) 32x32
Image

I want to get my OWN body structure for a 32x32 sprite.

Might do some pixel art tutorials, good to share my experiance to the forums. If I do do them, and link them to you would you be so kind as to add them to the initial post?

Great post, these tutorials are awesome. I'm not exactly an artist, I should be able to get the hang of it pretty easily now. Always wanted to try out pixel art. :)

Pixel art is great for games on systems with limited graphics abilities and low resolution. If you really want to hone your pixel art skills checkout isometric versions. These are at an angle and can be a challenge to make.

I actually think isometric art is easier to make, and turns out uglier in the end (pure isometric anyways, if the vertical angle is reduced a bit, it can be made to look decent). It's far more difficult to show depth front a front or half top-down view than it is from a 45 degree angle.

Oh man thank you so much for all this! Though I'm for sure going to be a Programmer by title and specialty, I surely plan on learning as much as I can about every other aspect of the Game Development process. Pixel Art has been one of my favorites, at least after playing Breath of Fire III as a kid(and that's probably exactly the style and level of pixel-y detail I'd enjoy advancing to!).

Maybe if I do this fast and well enough even with zero experience, I can become hired as an ES Pixel Artist as requested. xD

Thanks for this list mate, it'll help me a lot.

I am doing a solo project right now, there seem to be no pixel artists around my town. The kids here are either stoned or in jail. I need someone who will be sober and jail-free.

Lol, I can't really say anything for the whole sober thing. I'm normally smoking. :p
