Pixel painting....

I think I've tried out most of the software available. ASEPRITE is useless to me. Tile Studio isn't horrible, but it's lacking in features.
Grafx2 is at least somewhat usable, a rather nice pixel paint package, especially with limited colors. However, it's not that good for sprites and tiles. Graphicsgale is still close to the best. Paint Shop Pro 9 is very good for this. My experience with Gimp and Photoshop is limited, although I think they're probably pretty good, depending on configuration Paint.net is very nice, surprisingly. So is the new MS Paint. Simple enough?

 Title - and the key - for my last post is 'bits'.

Today's image with grafx2 and touchpad.

*edit* and tweaked in Paint.Net. I do like it for pixel-precision stuff, after all!

I like seeing Terra pictures. After all this time she's still my favorite character to think about. ^_^

Sty would be a close second, but that's mostly due to some of the concept and not necessarily the implementation. I think of Sty when I'm playing Rockman/Megaman X games.

Quite right.
Today, I discovered OpenCanvas runs fine with a bit of wine.
