About
My name is The Artist Formerly Known as Evan. I was born in spring of 2001. My website link is my art from piq if you want to see my first attempts at pixel art (5 years ago now). Be warned, it's bad. It's really bad. If you are a skilled landscape artist, feel free to join my group. We can pixelate some happy trees together. I joined pixilart on October 28th, 2017

You have SOOOOOO many beautiful drawings.

You should go a tutorial on clouds if you haven’t done one. It would be very beneficial to the beginning community.

@8-bit-adventure. I give you a challenge similar to the asi ice bucket challenge. make a drawing using a 10x10 canvas. Post it, and nominate two other people to do the challenge. Good luck my friend!
The Vagabond @8-bit-adventure
Sounds fun! I will attempt something. Not sure about nominating others though.

I posted this already, so I'll copy it here, but I swear by this tool for gradients. "I typically hit the + button at the top right of the color menu to add a new color preset so that I can see my palette all in one place without the default colors in the way. When you go to add a color, you should also see a text box near the bottom right of the selection screen where you can input hex codes. This allows you to use a number of hex selection sites to choose colors and then copy the codes into the pixilart color selector. I use this site: https://www.colorhexa.com/";

Preferential Attachment dictates that a quantity of some "thing", be it likes or subscribers or hot pink Easter Island heads, when distributed among a number of individuals, will be given more often (preferentially) to those who already possess a greater number of the "thing". The Pareto Principle dictates that 20% of the cause results in 80% of the solution, meaning that roughly 20% of the users on this site receive 80% of the views, likes, and subscribers. The combination of these effects means that this 20% is likely to receive many more views, likes, and subscribers than the remaining 80%. -Vsauce (Michael Here)

This also means that my rare collection of hot pink Easter Island heads is only likely to grow (thank god).

Hey - I was wondering if you would mind if I copied the colours and style of your grass in the floating fortress. I can't believe I am going to do another grass related piece so soon after the lion pride one. Believe me I hate drawing grass just as much as you. My idea is to do an absurd landscape drawing of stonehenge, and your floating fortress piece looks very much like England or Scotland. Anyhow the absurd part of my drawing is not the landscape part (that bit will be realistic), the absurd part is that my stonehenge will be made entirely of chocolate bars (yup you heard right 'chocohenge'). Anyhoo I hate grass so..... any chance you'd mind me copying some bits of grass from floating fortress? I'd give you credit for the grass of course.

I just posted my "chocohenge" drawing - GAWD it took so long to draw - glitches with saving the file the first time around - but it was worth it!

@8-bit-adventure I'm still pretty awful at Pixilart, and I was wondering if there is any advanced color selection menu in the editor.
The Vagabond @8-bit-adventure
Well, I can't say it's advanced, and I don't know if you've come across this already, but I typically hit the + button at the top right of the color menu to add a new color preset so that I can see my palette all in one place without the default colors in the way. When you go to add a color, you should also see a text box near the bottom right of the selection screen where you can input hex codes. This allows you to use a number of hex selection sites to choose colors and then copy the codes into the pixilart color selector. I use this site: https://www.colorhexa.com/

Hey there @8-bit-adventure, I finally had a chance to work on our pixel art collab. I just sent you an email with the drawing attached. I wanted to suggest that you open up the attachment and see if you'd like to add anything further, and after which you can post it in your gallery. If this drawing ends up getting a staff pick, I want the staff pick to go to you, since you suggested the collab, and I really love the color scheme and drawing that you did (I just added to what you started with). Hope you had a great holiday! Let me know if you have any issues opening the file (sadly the layers merged because I forgot to save it properly). Thanks again for inviting me to do this with you - it was a lot of fun!

I added some lighter colors to the reflection. I do see what you were going for with those neat textured reflections, but I felt they were a bit dark. Now I'm hoping they will be looked at as the reflections of the more distant hills.

Silence of Winter @Biology-nerd
I love the added reflections by the shoreline. I had to make some of your original ones more subdued because with the increased canvass size, I wanted to push your hills more into the distance, and your original water reflections were too strong (were more suited to a foreground view). Also I really wanted to add something in the foreground without obscuring the view of the lake and hills, so increasing the amount of sky allowed room for the tree branches, without having them obscure the rest of the drawing. Also - I'm a ------ for silhouettes :D
