Does Pixel Art really deserve to be its own art form? Isn't it just, due to the technical constraints for the time, a less sophisticated form of digital art?

Does Oil Painting really deserve to be its own art form? Isn't it just, due to the technical constraints for the time, a less sophisticated form of what a simple laser printer can do?

I would argue that pixel art is deliberately composed of square units vs. the rest of digital art where it's incidentally composed of square units. In other words, all raster files are made up of pixels, but only "pixel art" wants to make you aware of that fact. Sometimes the "pixels" are actually 2x2 pixel squares, having been up-scaled with no sampling. A digital painting would have smooth, aliased brush strokes and sampling would be used to preserve that as much as possible when scaling.

Pixel schizo is actually a guy studying how art work on a technical level so that he can teach it to its AI. If you recall the first drawings they made little to no sense, now they at least look human. Its scary

My favorite thing about pixel art is the repeating patterns. Consistent dithering to provide context as to the tilt of a form or it's tone value is really unique to the medium, and it always looks nice when done well.

I think an argument is to be made that digital art is less refined pixel art, as you're relying on a computer for anti aliasing and other techniques, which is pixel art shit. I'd say pixel art is the higher art, just at the cost of being monotonous.

Since a pixel is digital it's composed of 0s and 1s. What you're really looking at is mathematics.
>>
It's a whole different style. It takes a lot of skill to clearly portray something using only a few tiny squares. It's no longer based on limitations. Well, I guess it's based on limitations imposed by the artists themselves.

>Does Pixel Art really deserve to be its own art form? Isn't it just, due to the technical constraints for the time, a less sophisticated form of digital art?
no, i'd argue the constrained palette and low resolution of the workspace brings a sort of pixel-space efficiency that is completely unique to pixel art. adding just a single pixel can massively change the way your brain perceives a subject, something you'd need several strokes to do for less restrained art forms. incidentally, that's also how i personally distinguish between pixel art and binary/oekaki art. most of the stuff you've posted here isn't really pixel art.

OP, are you using Bionicles for your pose/figure reference?
>>
hello fellow pixel enthusiast.
>>

Depends. Pixel art as it is known now is very diffrent than 8 and 16 bit videogame assets. The most important difference is the display techonology it is/was made for. Pixel art now is made taking into consideration an lcd display and tends to favour pixel perfect resolutions. However, video game art of 8 and 16 bit era didn't care about pixel perfect, and take to an advantage the capabilities of crt display. You can compare the raw pixels on an emulator vs how it was intended to look on a crt, usually via a composite video signal. The raw pixel image sometimes is wider than the crt display, and when displayed, it shrinks the image. This is done to increase the level of horizontal detail. Take for example the snes, it has an internal resolution of 256x244, which is 8:7 aspect ratio, vs the typical crt tv which has a 4:3 aspect ratio. Developers are inconsistent when considering this, some do, some don't.

That isn't pixel art, it's just a sketch at this point. Pixel art isn't done by free handing quick lines like that. It's very slow and intentional and often done one pixel at a time. This is just non-antialiased digital art if you were to say you were done with it.

>Does Pixel Art really deserve to be its own art form?
short answer: yes, because pixels are the fundamental medium of digital art.
longer answer: I've been getting into vintage PC98 art lately (and by extension, other pixel art), and I've been wondering why it appeals to me so much—especially because I mostly do traditional art and usually enjoy classic comic art done with pen and ink.
I find that pixel art and traditional art are the two art forms that share maximum 'soul.'
The digital art pieces typically found on Artstation—especially using tools that mimic traditional mediums—lack soul. It almost seems like ersatz art to me.
Why? Probably because pixels are the fundamental medium of digital art, just like ink, paint, etc. are the fundamental mediums of traditional art. Thus it is more authentic, pure, and 'soulful.'
>>
>>5327440
dont you see? this IS his blog
>>
>>5331368
This is a great analysis anon and one I agree with.
With digital (even replicating trad mediums) I found that I could wing a lot of it.
With pixel art, I found myself zooming way in and modifying each individual pixel where needed to get the look I was going for, just like I would when I'm adding in fine details in trad.

The physical constraints and properties of a medium and style are intimately intertwined.
