Pixel Tutorial


Badge Awards

Edit 2 nov 30th 2015: wow! I hadn't noticed this reached over 1000 favourites! Thank you guys so much!

Edit: This isn't even how I make pixels anymore,, maybe someday I'll make a tutorial for that? It has a lot more steps though

Figured I'd make a tutorial since I saved all the steps for the last pixel I made uvu
hope this helps you guys!

i don't think it's a matter of program used so much as the brush! You want to be using a 1 pixel brush with no anti-aliasing, the lines will come out clear that way. unless you mean after scaling the sketch down? in that case you may just need to be using simpler shapes in the sketch- most details sorta get lost and turn into confusing blur when scaled down that small, so the sketch needs to be pretty large clear shapes if you're gonna draw it bigger than shrink the canvas. ever used shrinkydinks? kinda like that haha... Not sure if this advice is helpful but I'm happy to answer more questions if you need it ^^
