Awesome list, small correction: Sprite Something works on iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Thanks for putting this together.

That's a lovely list, but just how is ArtRage (for example) supposed to be a pixel tool?

Also, link for promotion is www.cosmigo.com/promotion/

Another note, Allegro Sprite Editor is now officially renamed to "Aseprite"

@mattfox12, thx for the correction! :DDD

@iLKke, thx man! big_smile... about ArtRage, honestly no really sure (because i don't own the program) but as far as i readed is possible to made pixels there, but no idea how! yikes... really thx for the notes and corrections! :DDD... that's the main idea of this list! :XXXX, apart from have a reference list aswell!...

Some more errata:
-GraphicsGale is not free, it is shareware
-GangeED is a Win app for c64 graphics

thanks for making this list, awesome!

I really like ArtRage, I've used it, and it's a natural media simulator, like Painter (made by some of the original authors as well!). I honestly couldn't find anything even remotely related to pixel art in it. It can't open two views at the same time, neither are there fill, brush or index palette functions. Some programs (like PhotoShop) are flexible enough so they can be used for pixel art even tho it's not their original purpose, but ArtRage, although awesome, is NOT one of those programs big_smile

Perhaps you can remember where you read that it's possible to make pixel art in it? Maybe it was ArtGem, not ArtRage?

it wasnt an article itself, was a person who mention that he did the pixel art in ArtRage 3... here is
http://vacant-curses.deviantart.com/art … oodonly=69

but that's not really oficial to been honest! tongue... so im asking in the forum... here is the link
http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/sh … hp?t=34906

also, if i remember Painter is able to do pixelart too, but the config was a pain, if i remember you had to add a brush and a plug-in, but that was about 6-7 years ago so have no idea how it;s now!... i will investigate about it too..

know if this programs are able to do pixel art? - they are all MAC so i can't test them! XD

Ilkke, i was thinking to add some "non-pixel" programs but art related in a short list as Painter / Colors (ds/iphone) and few others. Just to not create a new list! LOL... what do you think??

Sure, just add a section at bottom.
Btw, I think I've seen a couple more pixel apps for the iphone, I will look them up and then list them here.

What a lovely list; thank you for putting this together! I will look through my machines (Mac, PC, and Linux) to see if I have anything to add here.
Just a small note: The posted link for YY-CHR is an old version--0.97, I think. Version 0.99 includes a nametable editor, which is a huuuge new feature for this program. YY-CHR 0.99 can be downloaded at http://www.smwcentral.net/download.php? … type=tools

Needs AMIGA section with Deluxe Paint and Personal Paint.
Deluxe Painty is also available for otehr platforms.

ALSO: Fantavision.

@Ilkke, added!, most of the programs i added in the new "section" are like Painter and for Animation. If you own an iPhone, g00g0g0g0!! XDD, let me know in anycase. I also moved ArtRage to that new section.

@Party Time! Hexcellent!, :OOO nametable editor!?? DOOWNLOADING!, didnt know, thx for the update big_smile

@Akira, you will have to help me a bit there, i have no idea about those. But googling i found this...

http://www.amigaforever.com/classic/internet.html
http://eabmobile.abime.net/showthread.p … post753202
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantavision
seens like they are all AMIGA OS and Apple II based

And not really freeware except Cloanto's Personal Paint.

[edit]
Deluxe Paint (in varied forms) was available for Amiga, Atari ST, PC
Fantavision - PC, Amiga, Artari ST, Apple II
Personal Paint - Amiga
Brilliance - Amiga


Grafx2 is available for many platforms including AmigaOS, Mac, GP2X and Caanoo.

Fantavision was vector based, iirc?

Great resource!!
