Pixel art has been the best hobby for gamers, and it is commonly used for 8 bit games and adventures, and is mainly done in sprite sheets, tilesets, and other resources which are used in retro style games. It is also great for profile avatars and other content. This style of art was integrated into the logo, Chipster Media.
