RetroART Gallery opens its venue
We all love retro games, right? Right. That means, we all are people of great taste, right? Right?
So let’s have a thread dedicated to things made purely for the sake of being appreciated, a gallery of retro and retro-inspired art. This can be pixel art, voxel art, ASCII art or even some old-school demoscene works. Anything that makes you remember old days with that warm, fuzzy feeling in your heart.
Here we can post links to our favorite artists (their websites, social media, deviantarts etc.) and their works.
You want to indulge in some great pixely art? Looking for an idea for that next wallpaper? Or maybe you’re an artist yourself and want to show off your skills? Then RetroART Gallery (pun intended ) is a place for you.
For starters, this is a gallery of some random pixel art from various artists and games:
And now for the main course, some obvious, well established names (this is my top 3):
Known for his collaboration with Ron Gilbert on the first Monkey Island game, as well as more recent Thimbleweed Park. Truly a man of many talents - apart from pixel art he also makes ‘normal’ art and writes his own stories (illustrated, of course). He also published a mobile app that can turn your phone’s wallpaper into one of his magnificent works.

Valeriya Sanchillo aka Waneella
Incredibly talented and prolific. Best known for her amazing city scenes and cyberpunky feel.
Gerardo Quiroz aka Kirokaze
Again some great Night City feels. Just like two other artists, his works are very wallpaper-worthy.
Hope you like it. Feel free to post your favorites.
