So I was suffering from artist block for a while now. I did try out a lot of different styles but nothing really worked out. I guess part of the problem was that I kept finding amazing art everywhere and decided to just imitate it. As a result I ended up creating a bunch of pictures I never considered good enough to publish even though there wasn't anything obviously wrong with them.

I have now decided to instead focus on finding my own style of doing pixel art. Going back to a limited color palette was step one. I really love the Nyx8 palette so this is what I will be using for now. I am amazed at how versatile it actual is. Working with and around a limited color palette was a ton of fun.
Next I hope to find some sort of sweet spot between detail and minimalism as well as maybe look in to more interesting compositions.

Thanks for reading this somewhat lengthy description.

Oh that Link! I had no idea what you were talking about. Sorry, just some random gal.

Anyways thanks for the praise, I am glad you like it.

He's a character from a video game, sorry :)

\\\ I feel the same way, I want to find a style that's realistic and extremely simplified at the same time, though I lean towards abstract and angular shapes in alot of my art (Ahem... scribbling if we're being totally honest here :)

I really like the way you used light and dark in this, it really sets the mood. I also like the composition, very clear!
