Tried my hand at some pixel art with a program called Pixen— it’s fabulous! Pixen makes it easy to create frame-by-frame animations as well as artwork with layers, transparency, and more. (Above: actual size; left: 4x enlargement)

The nature of pixel art is really time-consuming because of the precision involved, but I hope I get to do more of it.
