Welcome to 2017! I hope you’ve had a nice 2016, despite all the things people like to complain about. Today, on a whim, I looked at the clock and saw that it was still the first of January so I said hey, let’s do a thing!
This resulted in this here tweet:
Well, fuck it. It’s still 1/1/2017, might as well start a thing. Let’s do a pixel art thing every day all year. #pixelart

Well, I said it, so now let’s get to it! Here’s the first entry:
Might as well put all the money I’ve spent for PyxelEdit and GraphicsGale to good use.
As general ground rules I am putting forward for myself (and anyone who might want to participate):
- Use a 64×64 image size. Anything smaller than that is fair game.
- Upload one every day. If you miss a day, you can make up for it by making two the next day.
- It can be whatever you like, whether you want to follow a concept or a prompt (like @Pixel_Dailies)! You can even do animation. I know I’ll try.
Please note: I am not experienced at pixel art (or art in general). Any critique is very welcome. I’m doing this to get better at something this year (hopefully).
When I checked @pixel_dailies today, I noticed that the theme for the day was Toast. I did the piece before I checked the page.
