Playdate dev looking for pixel artist

Hello, i have a very rough prototype game and a few sprites that i am not happy with because i suck as an artist. If you are good with vehicles and animations, please reach out.

Thank you!

Hi there! I'm very rough at code, but pretty decent at pixel art, new to game development, working on pico-8 and hopefully eventually playdate, rn though... I was literally just thinking I should offer my pixel arts for peeps.

I actually, sorta specialize in 1-bit art too!

I'd like to be clear that I am by no means a "professional" pixel artist, just an aspiring game dev, mistress of none artist/geek/weirdo/delivery girl, who happens to do pixel art, and has dabbled in animation on and off most of her life.

I've never really done vehicles as pixel art, but am interested in giving it a shot if you have any particular direction to give!

I unfortunately don't have much of a portfolio, but have some examples of 1-bit stuff I have done on hand.


"A Light in the Dark" 128x128px

"Earth from Space" 128x128px

I work with whatever tools I have, and actually enjoy working with limitations, both of the above were created on a 1997 Apple Newton MessagePad 2100 in HexPaint (think MacPaint, but mobile), there's more, just, not on hand atm!

I'm working on some sprite animations for a breakout clone tutorial for Pico-8 through "Lazy Devs Acadamy" because ma'am is it dull as is, I can upload the finished sprites, and their 1-bit equivalents as animation examples as soon as they are done if you are interested!
