Though not a much popular form of art, and one some think is a relic from the past, Pixel Art, is actually a very complex form of digital art, and can be surprisingly beautiful.
The name Pixel Art was coined by Adele Goldberg and Robert Flegal of Xerox PARC in 1982. The image is made by painting each pixel, using a limited color palette. It is reminiscent of the images of old video games from Atari, Nintendo, etc. It takes a lot of patience and a great deal of skill to make those images brick by brick, so to speak.
