On pixel art...  
It takes far longer than it should. And... it's not complex, but it is. Sort of. And I like doing it. It just eats up so much time.

Stitch pixel. The only thing I've finished tonight. He's cute, though.

Cute! (I *need* to see that movie.)

Dumb question for the day: What's "pixel art", exactly? (I can kind of infer from the name, but...)

Ah... pixel art is when you draw something to be small, cute, and pixel-y. They're sometimes called 'dolls' or 'sprites' and originated with avatars for The Palace. My little Stitch doll wasn't shrunken from a larger drawing or anything. They're drawn pixel by pixel in the paint program of your choice. They can be animated. Um... you can find bases on the internet if you don't feel like going to all the trouble of actually drawing and just want to play dress up. It's a whole big culture, really.

In other words, they're great fun. :)
