If you want to talk about comissions shoot me a note.

About Me:

Hey There,
I am a professional pixel artist and animator specialized in pixel art.
I am also quite familiar with art direction and asset planning for 2D-games, especially for indie games.

I am living in Austria, Tyrol. It's a great country for skiing and winter sports.

My artstyle is mostly dark and mature filled with the stuff I love. I am a big fan of knights, dinosaurs, pirates, epic beasts, anatomy, human prosthetics and history as well as everything twisted and weird.
My love for videogames showed at the age of 5, while I started out with Super Mario 64 and other lighthearted platformers, my interest switched to tactics and rpg games and later to fast paced action rpgs, ego shooters and survival horror.
According with all my interests my favorite style of music - Metal - goes hand in hand. I really like dramatical orchestral sound or simpler rockier one and of course Pagan - especially if I can relate to the lyrics.

Despite all that I am also a big fan of Donald Duck. I especially love his early-form from the old Silly Symphonie films, I grew up with. Nowadays I am still reading the comics and have a fairly big collection.
I think that the Disney animations are the reason why I am so fascinated by 2D animations. And Rosa and Barks definitely shaped my interest for history.

This a bit irrelevant, but if you were to have a theme, I believe that Lively Town from Shining Force II would fit really nice! (Despite the fact that heavy synthwave would be nice too hehe)

Also, thanks for being a great inspiration for me and showing all of us how limitless pixel art can be! (Or at least you can be!)
Whenever I'm questioned who are the greatest pixel artists of all time, your name is one of the firsts :)

Thanks Cyang :D

I must ask, what program do you primarily use to make pixel art?

I've always wanted to give it a try, yet never had the faintest idea where to begin or get started.

any advice for this awe-inspired pixel noob?

I use Gimp 2.6.12 for static sprites and Graphics Gale for animation. THere are a bunch of other great programs around.

THis is the best advice I can give to every beginner:…

Hello, do you design your color palette to be so ever inclusive? 
Like, how do they mix and bounce of one another?
Do you have tips and procedure on that?
Cyangmou Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Do you have a more specific question? If it's that general I can't really give a good answer.
alexandersinnelius Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2016
Ah, well... let's you paint directly, shape by shape and guess through the colours around as you go and adjust the later...
or do you work in layers and putting everything in together on top of another?

I wonder if you know the sort of method called direct painting.
Cyangmou Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
with pixel art you generally don't use transparency, transparent gradients or uncontrolled mixing of colors.
While for some kinds of physical paint like oil or acrylics it can make sense to use half-opaque layers of colors, pixel art in general is much more comparable with the "direct" approach.
Also if you just use 4, 8, 16 or 32 colors per piece you generally don't really want to waste palette entries.

If I use layers, I use them mostly like animators use layers - that some part of the beneath lying drawing doesn't get destroyed.
Generally most things I do are painted on a single layer.
