it's a me! Hello! I'm Lou (Elfwink), and I make pixel art for fun. Please read the terms of use explaining what you may and may not do with my artwork. 🙏🏻

I am a real person and this is a source of enjoyment for me. It makes me sad when people use my art without permission. (Yes, I've found people doing this!)

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Pixel Art Terms of Use

  2. You may not collect in any kind of "found pixel art" galleries, blogs, or other websites.
