Find Pixel Artists for Hire for Your Projects

Pixel art is a form of digital art wherein images are created and edited at the pixel level. Pixel art is similar to mosaics or cross-stitch; pixel design focuses on small pieces placed individually to create a larger piece of art. A graphic artist who specializes in pixel art is known as a pixel artist.

What Do Freelance Pixel Artists Do?

A freelance pixel artist, sometimes known as a pixel animator, works with pixels - the smallest piece of information in an image. You can hire freelance pixel artists for creating sprites - a two-dimensional bitmap that is integrated into a larger scene. A pixel artist practices pixel art using precision oriented tools such as a 1x1 pixel pencil tool.

A pixel artist could either specialize in Isometric Pixel Art or Non – Isometric Pixel Art. In isometric pixel art, the viewpoint is angled to reveal facets of the environment that would not be visible from a top-down perspective or side view, thereby producing a three-dimensional effect whereas non-isometric pixel art is any pixel art that does not fall in the isometric category, such as views from the top, side, front, bottom, or perspective views.

Though most popular in the gaming industry, pixel artists are also seen associated with publication houses, media houses, and digital media companies. There are a number of graphic artists who specialize in pixel art and provide online freelance services. These artists can be found on Guru.com for a variety of design jobs.

If you wish to hire a freelance pixel artist, make sure your artist can:

  • Design immersive backgrounds and bring them to life.

  • Conceive different graphic elements.

  • Create engaging animated effects.

  • Think creatively and deliver in the stipulated time.

Qualifications of a Freelance Pixel Artist

It is ideal for the pixel artist to have the following skills:

  • Professional education in art or design

  • A good sense of content design

  • Excellent pixel art/2D/3D skills

  • Experience in Adobe Photoshop and image compression techniques

  • Knowledge about UI design

  • Comprehension of how games are made

  • Open to different art styles

  • Knowledge and experience with video games

  • An eye for detail and ability to work methodically
