Wow, that's really good Surprised I wish I had some artistic skills, but alas my right brain never arrived.
Haha, you're a solid left brain guy? I try to do a bit of both, hence my GIMPings and all the logos I make for my projects. Smile
What exactly is Pixel Art?
Its just low res images made by like MS paint usually in black and white or very low res grayscale. Usualy made by hand clicking each pixel. I used to do this with cars a while ago, if you look at my earlier post thats what mine looked a little bit like.

Yeah. I wish I had any creative or artistic tendencies, but I don't. Let's put it this way: I could code a better bitmap of a word than I could draw one. Laughing

Btw, you don't need to sign all your posts "-swivel". First of all, you should be using -- to indicate that you are using a dash rather than a hyphen. Second of all, just put it in your sig.

Hey thats pretty cool.

Experimenting with colored pictures I drew a colored map using GIMP2 and sent it to the Calculator still in the form I saved it in, it impresively redid the image to look very good quality on the calculator but as I progressed to send more and more the newest sent ones turned into black images with touches of white in the bottom right corner. then once I tried to open the older ones they were all like that. Is there a problem with the processor? can it not handle the pictures or something?

how do you save files for the calculator in GIMP?? Shock
There's a plugin on ticalc.org that should handle opening and saving. It's by Romain Levin.
sorry, broke the "B&W or Grayscale rule" Razz

however, I tried my hand at a fox silhouette for Vixen VM, so tell me what you think.

That's very impressive. Do you just use a mouse, or do you have some sort of drawing peripheral?
All done with the paintbrush in MS paint with a normal mouse.

I'm experimenting with the ears to see if I can make them bigger without throwing the proportions into chaos right now.
