My name is Jacob Steinberg, and I'm a 17 year old pixel artist dork from Sweden.
I'm not like a "big expert" in pixel art, I still have time to learn and improve my art.
I don't remember exactly when I started to do like "proper" art. I at least started with pixel art in like around 2014/2015. I always loved playing on my SNES when I was growing up, and I wanted to draw pixel art too (Yes... I'm a retro gamer). When I started, I mostly redrawn existing pixel arts and sprites (I did even upload them on my old Twitter, but I had no idea that what I was doing was actually wrong. At least the ones I did wasn't even good). When I redrew sprites for a while, I got more and more used to it. So, then I started do similar to what I did before, except changed the colour palettes on them (And yes, I uploaded them as well. Good thing that I stopped uploading redrawn arts to my Twitter).
Then around 2016, I started to become more original with my art. At the same time, I started to draw traditional art (Y'know, drawing on a piece of paper), specially anime, cuz during the time, I started to watch anime. I haven't really drawn that much in my sketch book that I bought this year, cuz I'm drawing on my computer more often.
There is nothing much about my life that I can tell, but my whole life isn't really anything interesting anyway.
Even if I mostly draw, I've always wanted to try making an animation. Well yea, I've made a few GIFs on my Twitter, but I mean like, a fully animated video. Doesn't matter if it is in pixels or in a drawing program thing. Not only animation, but even game developing and music. I basically want to try new things. I want to challenge myself to try new things that I can't.
I have nothing else, so I'm going to throw in some small facts for y'all.

Well, that's everything I have to say. The last thing I have to say is that I may be mostly often on my Twitter posting updates and art, so check my Twitter: https://twitter.com/JameS_Ztein
I have nothing else to say now, so... See y'all soon! :)
