I recently started learning spriting/pixel art to help propel my game development endeavors and I've gotten to the point where I'd like to start sharing it for comments, critiques and other feedback.

I've got a pretty good awareness of some art sites out there but none of them have really struck me as ideal so I'm looking for suggestions from you guys!

You might want to look at Pixel Joint. Good place to showcase your pixel art and gather feedback from other artists. Not as crowded as Deviant Art, though.

There are some really great indies over on tigsource.com (art board). I've seen a lot of those guys pump out some really cool pixel art. I'm sure you'll find a fair amount of people willing to give you advice. You might check out gamedev.net as well. I know Mark Eugn does a LOT of epic pixel art (gd.net journal).

To showcase your work, http://carbonmade.com/ might be the way to go. You can break what you do down into categories so people can find their focus faster. The interface for the site is nice.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Cool, I'll definitely check out that stuff, thanks! I'm looking for more of a service like DeviantArt (but for pixel art) though that supports uploads; I'd like to host my stuff on the cloud instead of hosting it myself. \$\endgroup\$

The Pixelation forum has lower traffic but, has always been a good place for honest critiques. DeviantArt isn't geared specifically towards pixel art but, it's a great place to showcase and interact with other artists.
