Pixel Tree Tutorial by D-e-n-a Pixel Tree Tutorial by D-e-n-a
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.

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

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... ^_^;;

It actually has comments, there just seems to be a bug on DA right now where they don't always load properly. try a refresh.

I really like this tutorial. It's rather vague, but I can pretty much see the general flow of things, and the end result turns out looking quite professional-like. :meow:

Yeah, it's not really a true tutorial. More like a few steps in the process with some basic comments.

But thanks ^^

Nah, they were the one who earned the daily deviation, on their own work. I'm just glad they could pick up a couple techniques from this tutorial.

That's a good idea, though. Never thought of drawing the leaves that way instead of... y'know... doing each leaf individually.

Doing each leaf thinking about them individualy would drive one crazy, especially on a larger tree.
