General: pixel (artwork)

Digital art drawn with attention to every individual pixel, normally with hard-edged tools. Often limited in color count, and frequently scaled up with nearest neighbour "interpolation" so you can see each individual pixel clearly (as in the first example below)

Generally low-resolution. If it's larger than 500x500 (without scaling), chances are it's not pixel_(artwork), but could be oekaki or just plain digital_media_(artwork). If it contains many gradients, a similar principle may apply.
If you cannot distinguish each individual pixel clearly, it also may not be pixel_(artwork)

Examples and counter-examples:

Pixel art:

  • ambiguous_gender animated boo_(mario) captain_toad coin digital_media_(artwork) eyewear fangs glasses goomba group humanoid koopa loop magikoopa male mario_bros mask nintendo paul_robertson perspective pixel_(artwork) pixel_animation scalie shyguy toad_(mario) tongue tongue_out video_games

  • pixel precise, but far too high resolution for any kind of pixel art technique to come into play. Probably just warrants the plain digital_media_(artwork) tag.
