Opinions on your favorite pixel art/animation software?
Indie game development can be a very inspiring but overwhelming hobby. Getting into the swing if things I'm looking into making an 8-Bit pixelated 2D game since the art assets and atmosphere seem like a great start for beginners. Naturally I'm looking into buying the perfect pixel creation software for art and animations. Asking for the best software is way too cliche as it varies among users so I want to hear people's opinions on what they think is the best pixel software and why as well as an example of some work done by it if you have any. Like I said I'm a beginner so Id prefer something with an easy interface while at the same time being able to use the assets "professionally" but I am open to all opinions regardless of the software that's used.
