A disclaimer would be that I have no idea what I'm really doing or talking about.

No, but really I'm still pretty new at this stuff. But here's the tutorial that somebody asked me for, although I probably shouldn't have done it about making a tree.

The tree is shown at x2 in this tutorial.

Um. yeah. you have to full view.

If you have any questions just ask, I didn't explain everything fully and kinda made this tutorial fast. Also, If anyone actually uses this tutorial, I'd love to see what you come up with.

Question: are the lowest lights the only shade you color blue? and the highest yellow? ffff don't understand

did you use a specific setting for the eraser? and what was your page size for the work? I tried this with a 63*62 but my eraser is not sharp at all any advice is welcomed.

i use a program called paint.net when i'm making my pixel stuff, so i usually just set the fill type to "replace" instead of "blend", set the secondary colour to 100% transparency and muscle it out with the pencil tool. another idea would be to, if your program has it, deactivate anti-aliasing to sharpen the brush/eraser so it fills blocks solidly with the chosen colour. that's what i do anyway

Exactly what I was looking for...I have no idea what I'm doing. This has been immensely helpful in my stumbling journey to make a pixel forest.

Would it be possible for me to use the trees? I know you're using them for this tutorial and everything, but I absolutely fail on trying to make pixel trees. which is why i'm asking... ^_^;;
