    Im trying to make a retro styled game and I realized that after many hours of trying, I can't draw. Does anyone know a good place to find pixel artists?

    What is your budget? I have a buddy who is pretty good and he's always looking for extra cash. may be interested. I also know a very talented studio if you have a large budget. Feel free to PM me

    A budget of like $10-20. I actually have no idea how much these art assets cost. I was pretty lucky cus one of the artists I contacted just drew me up something for free haha.

    For anyone else who's looking to hire pixel artists, I came across wayofthepixel.net and found it useful.
