I am a pixel artist looking to tender my skills out to anyone who needs them. My hourly rate is negotiable, and I will also consider doing work on a per-asset pricing model too. I specialise in environment art but I will also do character artwork, UX/UI art, logos, basically anything you need.
You can find a perpetually updated album of my pixel art work here:

Gorgeous art ! I would love you hire you but ...
As you would guess , There's nothing in the pockets ...
Oh well ...
Looks really good! I especially like the fireplace one! Just wondering what tools you use to create it?
Really like the forest with the fire, and the faces in the wall.
Whiteclaws Don't cry! As soon as money becomes obsolete to society I'll do it all for free :D Seriously though, hit me up when you have some cash and need some art and I'll be glad to help you out :)

mineet Thanks for the kind words :)
your welcome, just been the Indie site, your game looks really good.
noticed you use the same tools as me.. I'm just learning my way round them and construct.
mineet Thanks, it's a really slow burning project since I'm doing it solo, but I'm trying my best to make something that plays well and looks good too.
If there's anything I can help you with, let me know!
Wrangler, another quick question if I may! how large are your sprite images when you work with them in photoshop? I'm new to drawing and what Ive done so far is about 100x100 pixels large, but it comes out so small and blurry when I apply it to my games :S

Lemonmuncher, I always work in power of two sizes (8x8,16x16,32x32,64x64,128x128,256x256 are the main ones I use for environments) when doing environment tiles. It's the general rule of thumb for games art (I'm almost certain Construct 2 complains about not liking non power-of-2 images), so I always stick with those sizes. It also helps keep all of your art tiles aligned nice and neat to a one-size-fits-all grid.
You don't need to keep it all the sides equally sized though, as long as you keep it a power of 2 number you'll never lose the grid, and Construct 2 won't whine at you about your images being non power of two.
For example, these assets from the jungle temple tileset:
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/9VG4qik.png" border="0" />
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/ECbuFgI.png" border="0" />
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/69nW9DR.png" border="0" />
You don't need to fill the whole image like I've done in these examples, but I always tend to keep the canvas size a power of 2 so that I don't get any weird errors, and everything plays nice with the grid.
I hope this helps!
Great stuff man! Really useful information for me :D As for character sprites, it doesn't really matter how big they are, am I right? Since they are resizeable?
Honestly I don't make my character sprites to any set sizes, I'm not really sure what the rule of thumb is for that but it's very rare that any characters will match perfectly to a power of 2 size.
