  • Both are beautiful styles in their own right. It's just a matter of how they are implemented into a project. =]

  • Right now I think Clash of Clans, or Angry Birds type art is quite popular, but it all depends on the feeling you want to give the player, the type of game and the Audience. "Hyper light drifter" style is probably my favorite when it comes to pixel art. Looks more modern yet retro. Games like "Below" looks retro looks a bit retro but is not pixel art. Play around with it, find some games that inspire you.

  • i prefer pixel art, it could be hi resolution pixel art and look neat. It's not easy as everybody say, doing pixel art is a lot of work, you don't have a lot of freedom in styles. I do both pixel art and vector/canvas.

    Today you have a lot of software for drawing but pixel art is almost the same.
