    couldnt stop posting it for u guys.
    IT IS ART.

    maybe we can also name GBA/DS games that have rich Pixel Art and not just crappy 3D characters.
    most recent game that i really enjoyed and that rich PA was TMNT, all other versions beside GBA version SUCK ASS but its GBA version is something else, like streets of rage.

    oh, it's not quite lost art, it's certainly unappreciated though.
    and to be honest, that iso town is kinda.. not so great, the format has raped it, the styles a bit incoherent and isometric just isn't that impressive in the first place.
    I'm not saying, it sucks, it's awesome, but it's not anything amazing like some stuff I have seen.

    As gbatemps favourite pixel artist, I'll just post some of my own tiles:

    Obviously unfinished, and I haven't worked on it in a long time.. been only working on twinsen really

    Takam, what is this reflection at sea near the beach?
    is this animated? since ur avatar seems to be based on this picture and is animated.

    i like Wario's pixel arts alot plus castlevanias. such detail.
    how they do it? is there a beginner tutorial? its good for my game dev too.

    I do have animated tiles, I just haven't animated that area [​IMG]
    and the reflection you're referring to is how the shore transitions from shallow to deep water (so you can see where your character can walk, and from what point he'd start to swim or drown)

    i thought about that, but didnt look like that.
    i think the second one (lower one) should be more broad.
    i think u should be very good at drawing to start pixel art, right?

    .Takam, I definitely like your town more than the 3Diso one.
    I'm more addict in real 2D graphics. I started drawing on computer with Amiga, and there was paint program where I made some pixel art, but now I'm drawing less often.

    I love pixel art. Ive dabbled a bit, but right now I lack the motivation to sit down and practice. Maybe one day soon.

    TakaM has some awesome work keep it up

    I prefer detailed pixelart rather than the flat-coloured isometric ones... they look too cartooney and aren't all that impressive.
