So I have a confession.  I don't consider myself any sort of artist.  I'm not out begging for comments on my "talent" in pixel art so hear me out.  When I was younger, I always wanted to be able to draw.  Except that I was terrible at it.  I have always been a comic book fan, and I wanted to be able to put on paper the imaginary battle scenes between some of my favorite heroes.  As I grew older and perhaps wiser, I decided to put these daydreams on the back shelf and move on with life.  I kept my love of comic books and just followed certain artists and writers from afar, knowing that I would never really be able to do what they do.  It's just a talent that I don't and never will possess.  Then I discovered the art of microing.  These little pixel things that resembled my favorite heroes and villains.  I was not very good at first and I was totally against putting them out on display for the world to see.  I just wanted to lurk in the background, admiring others skill with this new digital art form.  With time my "skill" began to improve and I joined a forum called the Microhero International Board.  Then another incarnation of it and several other "rival" boards.  It has been a blast for me to even remotely consider myself an artist.  There are so many other artists out there in these digital arenas that have skills that FAR outweigh my own.  I know this.  

Now, knowing all of that information, let me say this.  Criticize my "art" all you want.  I really don't care.  I think they look pretty cool and I have a good time doing this.  But please don't say stuff like "you suck".  If you really are an "artist" then for the love of Pete, HELP ME!  I want to improve.  I would love for these little digital creations to be better than they are.  If my "shading is terrible" then freaking tell me how to fix it.  I'm not an artist so I don't know how.  My brain doesn't work that way.  So there's my rant.
