Hey Dacap! I hope everything’s ok. The motivation for this post is that I see a lot of whining, accusations and demands here and I’m sick of it. Aseprite is industry standard for a reason: it’s amazing and everything else sucks. When I first begin toying with pixel art, I saw in an article that Pyxel Edit was very good, and because and didn’t know any better I bought it. After learning how to use it, I started making stuff, but because the program is not very intuitive, I left it abandoned very fast, and pixel art with that. Some time latter I saw a tutorial in youtube and they were using Aseprite. It looked amazing so I bought it. That was…five years ago? I can’t remember to be honest. But it changed everything. My workflow was getting better, the animations were much focused and better and general it was an abysmal improvement.
I personally don’t work with in games or anything similar, I’m an animation producer, I just do it because I like it, that simple. And thank you man, seriously, you have done something amazing, an incredible program, and a unified community. So thank you, for my sake and for those that use it everyday to work.
I hope that you keep working on this in the future, or that you earn enough money to relegate that to others. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
PD: And to hell with the whiners.
