So, post questions that you might have here, I'll slowly add them to Q&A

q: why are you so handsome?
a: it's the shining bald scalp.

q: where are you from?
a: Poland

q: what program are you using?
a: photoshop CS6 and our custom-built toolkit

q: isn't photoshop an overkill for pixelart?
a: no. I've been using it for past 10 years, pixelart is just a small portion of stuff that I'm doing, learning another program just for pixelart would be an actual overkill.

q: what tools are you using?
a: graphic tablet, wacom intuos3 with standard stylus

q: I'm just starting, what tablet do you suggest?
a: pencils and paper

q: no, srsly, I want tablet
a: that wacom for ~$100 (it used to be called bamboo, but wacom changed naming scheme) if you're not sure if you want to be pro. Wacom intuos pro if you're sure you're going to earn money with drawing.

q: how do you learn to draw like that?
a: practice

q: how long have you been drawing?
a: as long as I can remember, professionally for 3 years

q: Who inspires your work?
a: google image search

q: When's new AIGD?
a: no idea, ask Falco.

q: How to learn to draw?
a: There are two ways to go about it:
How to learn drawing (the slow and fun way):
just draw what you want at least 1h daily and maybe look at some pictures <3
How to learn drawing (the fast and unfun way):
1. learn your fundamentals:
color theory
2. draw still life daily for at least 2h till you hate yourself and you can accurately replicate reality
3. draw from references (poses [humans], landscapes) daily for at least 2h till you can accurately replicate them

q: Can you do stuff for me for free?
a: No.
