The Complete Guide to Isometric Pixel Art

Have you ever tried to make a piece of pixel art?  Have you ever gotten stuck by not knowing where to begin? Do you wish you had a comprehensive guide to isometric pixel art?  Then this article may be what you were looking for.

It is not uncommon to think "i wish i knew how to do that" when looking at an incredibly massive and detailed piece of pixel art.  A common question also is "where to begin?"


The Complete Guide to Isometric Pixel Art, over at</b>, takes you through 7 chapters explaining the foundations of pixel art and everything you need to know to get started, from colors and shapes, to textures and interiors.

EDIT:  Turns out that the creator of this tutorial happens to be a member at deviantART as well!  Props go to rhysd

It is a great tutorial. I read it a long time ago, when I was only starting at pixel art and I have to say I'd have never continue doing it if it wasn't for it.

Wow, just what I was thinking. I tried to just 'copy' some pixel art styles which I'd seen earlier tonight, and failed miserably... now there is hope!

Very nice and informative, but 7 chapters on how to make pixel art? Eh, probably only sounds ridiculous to me because pixel art is not hard for me at all even when I first began it wasn't too bad because I already understood the concept; tiny pixels make up a picture, simplifying the detail makes pixel art.

=p However there are always those not so observant individuals out there so I suppose it's good for them.
