A few months back I announced that I would do a pixel tutorial using Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, and Gimp, but as time passed by I never finished the writing part, nor started the visual. Because of this I have built up more projects that have involved writing and left the idea floating in the darkest depths of my mind and existence as an artist. In addition, with the months passing I have had certain friends and viewers ask me on how I do my icons/avatars. In return I had to write a few paragraphs on my process or tell that that I would have a tutorial explaining it all. At times I feel guilt whisper in my ear that if I continue to procrastinate they will continue to walk away and look elsewhere. And that is why I am asking you my watchers to please tell me what you would like to see in this tutorial. Please keep in mind that I do not draw animals nor furries, but that I do not mind adding animal features to human characters.

On the other hand, your suggestions will be written in this journal for safe keeping in addition to my own. I cannot promise that every suggestion will be added to this possible tutorial and even so I still enjoy hearing what everyone has to say.

My Ideas:

  • Character design (How to resemble references given)
  • Adding small objects
  • Basic dithering

Your Suggestions:

  •  Preferences on tools and canvas size - Suggested by XJasmin3x

I'd like to know your preferences on tools, size of canvas and etc. Designs are something thotally up to the artist so i ont think you should focus a lot on that. :)

These are really good suggestions Jasmine, thank you for sharing! I'll make sure to update the list with what you would like to see. I wasn't very specific on character design but my plan for that was on how to make the icon resemble the reference given.
