Thanks. I'd like to be better still but I had alot of fun working on that. I've updated it a tad but I'll post when I'm sure I don't care enough anymore to make more changes.

Boredom and hungry for oranges led to an orange.

The orange isn't really round. It's more square oval. I do like the colors.

Hmm... I'm noticing a common theme in your tilesets. I think you might wanna try combining cylinders and prisms and all sorts of other shapes because at the moment you have a lot of varieties of squares. The pallets are nice but more dimension and shape would be pretty killer. Because yes people still say that.

Here's a little somethin somethin I've been working on for awhile and should continue soon.

Awesome stuff, vortex! It's always neat to see what people can manage with just 256 pixels.
I don't think what Matt sai necessarily holds true for you, since what you showed seems to be for Cave Story. If it has a design goal, an ultimate look you want to achieve, then it doesn't matter if you use cylinders.
Also the rocks you drew have awesome texturing and depth, so that's not an issue.

Thanks.

Actually this is from some old GameMaker projects and the stuff at the bottom is from a few Minecraft texture packs that never got finished, but I am thinking of fixing up a couple of these tilesets, adding some more tiles, detail, fixing the colours etc. and using them in my CS mod.

Didn't see this thread before! I love pixel art! Here is some old stuff that I made. Sorry that it's mostly laid out in a WIP fashion. It was supposed to be for a Zelda-meets-CS-style fan game:
Assuming you were the one who had the link-quote gif in your signature, I always wanted to let you know how delicious those attack animations looked.

PixelVortex and HyMyNameIsMatt: Very nice sprite/tile sheets there!

Yep, and thanks! Btw, it's actually not a gif, it's an APNG (animated portable network graphic):

Because of this, it's only animated in the Firefox browser, since APNG was a Firefox-only thing. I believe that the APNG format was discontinued though, so I'm not sure if there is any way to make them any more. But that will still be animated if you are using the Firefox browser. In IE, it will not be animated and it also blurs for some reason as well, which is very odd. :confused: i'm not sure what other browsers such as Chrome or Opera do.

I also have a sprite sheet of Link and his actions:

It desperately needs a recolor, because there is not enough contrast, but I never got that far and the project was discontinued so I could begin working on an even better project.

A little something I did for thomasco2013's KH1 mod that he's starting on:

Obvious credit goes to Pixel for the Quote sprite. The edit is done by me, FrozenFire.
The yellow was a b**** to work with. Couldn't do much better while keeping true to Sora's clothing design/colors while staying true to the Cave Story sprite style as well.

These are up for grabs. There's like a 5% chance I'll be using her in my mod. (That changes to 0 if someone wants it)

Oh my gosh, I know this might sound crazy, but that's exactly what I need. I would like to use those facepics. For some reason I have some memory in my mind of you making a sprite of her too, not sure why. Did you? If so, then that would save me time if you linked me that and if I could use it too...

Of course, give me a sec.
I don't have a walking sprite for her though. I only have a standing sprite and a...uh...bloody sprite of her.

Edit: I lied
