Getting started in pixel artistry

So, I've decided to begin getting into pixel artistry as a hobby. I already managed to hit a roadblock in the fact I have numerous platforms and programs for those platforms to select from. So far my choices are:   AtariSTE - NEOChrome Master, Deluxe Paint, CyberPaint   Amiga 1200 - Deluxe Paint (probably 4 or 5), Brilliance, Photo Paint   DOS - Disney Animation Studio (own a boxed copy I got cheap off eBay), Deluxe Paint 2/DPaint Animation   Given that a lot of my art (as I get to it,

Just some musings.

So, I start working again at Disney's Hollywood Studios again after almost a full year out on medical leave. I seriously have to thank my managers for busting their asses to ensure I stayed a part of the team. With my foot/ankle/leg recovered (playing Dance Dance Revolution for the first time in almost four years was great), I can actually resume hunting for game bargains. I've actually found several boxed Intellivision games for incredible prices at the Play n Trade in Oviedo, FL. Once a pa

Recovery, and the future.

Well, after a full recovery from my ankle surgery in October (and an emergency gall-bladder removal last month) I'm finally back to the physical capability I had since early 2008. Despite defaulted student loans an a consolidation program for them, I look forward to returning to work and having my old active, social, and gaming lives back.

Hope has been restored.

On 10/19/2011, I received surgery for a tarsal-tunnel re-release. Within a week, my doctor already has me back to walking and beginning physical therapy. From the rate things are going, it looks like I will finally.. FINALLY make a full recovery after over 3.5 years of suffering from a workplace accident. I look forward to having my old life back again.

Game hunting on the East Florida coast.

Man, who knew actually going outside of Orlando could've been so great for finding retro games? I went to a few Video Game Trader stores (Orange City and Port Orange), as well as a place near South Daytona called "Blue Dragon Videogames". There was a lot of goodies to find. I've found some rare Atari 2600 games (Track & Field, Congo Bongo, Gorf, Steeplechase) all for a dollar a piece (and in the case of T&F and Steeplechase, I felt like I stole the games for how cheap they were sold).

It seems life's finally looking upwards.

I know a few of you have heard about the hell I've gone through since I had a workplace accident back in '08. Well, I did finally get hired part-time at Disney of all places (having been unemployed for a year, and ankle still not in any better shape since last year's surgery.. I'll take what I can get). When I submitted my paperwork yesterday, turns out the degree I was going for in college sparked interest in the new-hire staff. It seems once I graduate, I've already got opportunities for ma
