Pix4life is a website where you can request for commission for a piece of pixel-art or pixel-art animation. You can request me to make an artwork from your photos, ideas or even picture of your favourite characters from movies or games. You name it and I will do it.
The software that I am using to make pixelart with is aseprite. Aseprite is a awesome software that can be used to create sprites, animation and it is by far the best pixelart software that I have used. It is simple to use and fun to play with and so I would highly recommend it to anyone that would like to try making their own pixelart.
