Hi to all!

I'm Sam JC, also known as XhyldazhK.

I'm 27 and I'm from Mexico, and I liked pixel art since I played Super Mario Bros. 3., and videogames since the Atari arcade times.
Then, years later, a girl, friend of mine, was browsing online anorexia sites and showed me a page with lots of pixel perfected dolls. I liked them and then I renewed my interest on pixel perfected graphics.

Hello everyone. I am known as TKGB on the internet, so whenever you see TKGB, thats me.

Bio:
I live in Los Angeles. I dont know for how long I've been pixeling but I like it alot cuz I suck by hand. I like making games cuz they're cool. I am looking for a job so I can buy me a labtop and pixel anytime I want.

Okay now I got somethings I want to ask:

First is this rule right here:

~~Any art you post should be PIXEL ART! Pixel art implies that each pixel is placed by hand (no filters, paintbrushes, gradient fills, etc). ~~

So what exactly does this mean? I only use MSPaint so every tool there should be acceptable right?

Another query is references.

If I pixel something I googled online, do I have to add the reference site?

First of all I'd like to thank sedgemonkey for creating this awsome site. Never have i seen a better pixel site. This is the first site that ever kept me comin back on a regular basis. Great job 

Now a little about myself. My name is jedidiah and I live in pennsylvania united states. I am 25 married to my wonderful wife elyse. I have one rugrat my son daniel. He is 8 months old now.

I have always loved pixel art but never really got into creating it myself until now. This site kinda inspired me. I am a flash developer/designer/animator. I've always wanted to make pixel art games in flash. I am honored to be the head flash programmer on the pixel joint game. I can't wait to see the great talent on this site all come together in a game. I hope everyone will participate.

You can check out my site if you want  www.kwigbo.com
not to much there but everyone tells me it looks pretty

Pennsylvania is a wonderful place to be . At least I know pittsburgh is, I live there . I'm not exactly new to pixeling but I am new here. Just popping in to say hi, and whatever, expect a decent amount of submissions from me, and for me to lurk and most likely not post on this message board, because thats what I seem to be known for.

yeah
Our exorbitant national pride has vanished long since and Europe has become a peaceful place to live which is good. The world should finally unite and prepare for the extraterrestrial forces that will be invading earth in 2015.
You'll probably remember what I said when those hostile creatures poke your behinds with their nuclear butt-exterminator-sticks!

Hello fellow Pixel Jointers,

I joined Pixel Joint fairly recently. It is about time I say hello to all of you lovely people!

Pixel Joint is awesome. Thanks for all of the hard work Sedge and the rest of the PJ posse: Ripped Monkey, the keller, pixelblink, iSTVAN, Blueberry pie, and Bisque.

Name: Atooi
Location: Texas, USA
Origin: UK
Website: www.atooi.com

I've been working in the video game industry for nearly 14 years. I will be 32 this year; yeah, I know, I'm old! :)

Here's a pic of me. It is a quick rip of Finite's very cool homage (http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/2299.htm) to Fejer's style:

Atooi

I am originally from England. I moved to the US in 1993. I do pixel artwork because I love it. It is a challenge to create something half decent with pixel pushing, I just keep pushing and telling myself that anything is possible. Along the way I have developed a bag of tricks and techniques that enable me to tackle most pixel projects. I have accepted many tasks/jobs that I didn't know if I could accomplish, but I just decided to take them on as personal challenges (learning from the best: Capcom, Nintendo, etc.) It always works out OK in the end.

Anyways, good to be here!

Hello.

Joined here just a couple of days ago. I used to hang out on Pixelation a lot. And suddenly the site just vanished. So I went without a proper pixelforum for a while, then I found this site. I've looked around and what can I say other than that I like it. ^^

Name: Luzeke (Zeke for short if you like)
Location: Visby, Sweden
Website: It's not up yet.

I study game design at college. I've been pushing pixels for about two years. But I'm mainly a comic artist so I draw a lot. What I like about working with pixels is mostly that I can use it in games. I've made a couple of fightersprites and some platform sprites.

Here's a couple of small sprites I made of myself a year or so ago:

hello, im shark, i never introduced myself properly.
i have been pixelling for about 1.5 years, altho for my first year i
guess i just made boxes/habbo rips. if i hadnt come to pixeljoint i
would never have learnt pixel art outside of isometrics.

I am also the highest poster on this forum without moderator
abilities. w00t to me !!

btw i am not to fond of n00bs. The worst kind is this "where can i
make pixels and stuff and get some tutorials to be like pixels yeah??"
kind. They generally get abuse from me jus telling them to kill
themselves.

stay safe, unless your a n00b, - Shark

Hey, I'm Sam. Also know as Hishnak. I'm 16 and I've been doing pixel art for about 3 years. I got started into pixeling when I got into making games and I needed some decent graphics...so I made them myself. I'm also a member of an amateur game making group www.ectoprods.com

Helloooo! I'm a learning pixel artist (but not a n00b haha). I am 24 years old and I live in El Salvador. I began making pixel dollz, and, well, I still make them,  but recently I took an interest in isometrics and other kind of pixel graphics. Then I found this forum and it seemed interesting so here I am! I really hope I can learn tons of new stuff here, I have been browsing the galleries and I was liek woah only pros hahaha. Nice to meet you all

Hello Dra_chan, happy pixeling =)

Everyone who decides to go through the hassle of improving one's pixel skills deserves a pat on his shoulder
*pats all the newcomers on their shoulders*

It's almost frustrating to see how all of you come up with plenty of new ideas/works every day while I'm being lazy.. dammit.. I gotta do something

Hi, My name is Jordan and I'm a web programmer.

I've been working in flash for about 5 or so years now and in my spare time make games that I never finish due to a lack of drawing skills.  So a few months ago I started studying up on pixel art by reading various tutorials and decided I need to get some good critiques of my stuff so I can get better, that's how I found this forum.

While I'm slowly building up my own site I also help manage the http://www.timewastersguide.com which is where I spend a lot of time too.
