Overall Opinion: Just nope. I want to try it on safari even if it's really buggy but it has that pop up without even letting me try it. I hope they make it on safari so I can actually review this. If you use safari and not Firefox or google chrome please don't try it.
Pros: I can't actually go into it but I like the idea of a pixel sprite editor
Cons: The pop up. Pop up.
Overall Opinion: I think that Piskel has to be one of the most fun and free places to go for artists online, especially artists that love the 1980's nostalgic feel of some of those retro video games. If you enjoy art in this style, then no matter what you are likely to have a good experience on Piskel. I was not aware of the existence of sprites before using Piskel, but I am happy to have heard about them, because they are both very cute and a very interesting mechanic to play with, which allows for greater creativity than just a still life image. One of the most helpful aspects of Piskel is the private gallery that you have access to where you can see all of the sprites or pieces of artwork that you have created, but which nobody else has any access to.
Pros: You can use Piskel to create ether still images or moving sprites, in a nostalgie-filled retro style that falls under the umbrella of pixel art. You can use Piskel's private gallery to store all of the pieces of artwork that you create on Piskel. This is great for private or shy users that are not interested in immediately sharing their new creations with the rest of the world. You can export any of your pieces of artwork online in the form of various files, ensuring that your artwork can leave the program if you want it to.
Cons: There is really only one style of artwork that you can really work much with, which is retro pixel art. You can still imitate other styles of artwork, but at the end of the day, it will always be pixel art. The movement in the sprites is somewhat limited, although this is to be expected in the short time that GIFs have to process. If you choose to sign into Piskel through your Google account and your account gets hacked, your password could be taken and someone else could have access to your account.
