I started working as a pixel artist in 2021. It’s almost 3 years now and I am still learning. For the evolution, as a beginner artist I started with smaller pixels and low palette and slowly shifted towards bigger pixels. I have many inspirations in pixel art and I constantly try to make my better like them.

Every pixel artist have their own style. But as we learn and follow tutorials, we adapt to the art style of the tutor/mentor. But as we progress, We develop our own style without knowing 😀
I tried replicating the megaman and the street fighter for the few characters in the start when I was in learning phase and tried to learn the anatomy and develop my own style from that.

I use pixaki on iPad and sometimes aseprite for some work that pixaki can’t do.
But When I first started, I used the photoshop on my laptop with the mouse and I had the phone with a pencil compatibility, I used pixel studio in that.
I still use pixel studio in my iPad too. Every software has different tools that another don’t have so I keep all of these for quick working.

I usually gather all my files in a zipped folder and then Deliver to the client.
The files included in that depends on the project, like for animations, it is mostly gif scaled up and in original size format and the sprite sheet of all animation. If client demands seperate Pngs of complete animation, I include that too.
For the backgrounds and static sprites, I deliver a High quality PNG and original size PNG file. I also include the photoshop and aseprite files in all of my deliveries.

The prices of my work depends on the pixel size and the complexity of the project. If the size is low and not much complex, the charges will be low. And if the size is bigger and more complex details are needed, then it will be more charges for this.

I always share the progress with the client as I start. I ask the relevant questions and make sure I get all the required details to start, then I draw the concept/sketching and show it to the client. They can ask for changes if needed and then when we finalise it, I proceed further with the clean up of the design and add Colours and shading in it. And if animation is needed too, I first show the final design to the client to make sure he is satisfied with this. And if he wants any changes, I will do. Then I proceed with the animation and same I keep my clients updated with this too. In this way, It is easy to completely work according to what the client wants and avoid any bigger changes in the end.

Always compare the charges and the professionalism of the artist. And always go for the ones who keep you updated with the progress.
