This is my first tutorial, but I hope it can be helpful!
Feel free to ask questions if you don't understand something c: Also I'm going to make another tutorial about animation^^

As I said, please do not use my icon base or I will find you hehe :iconheplz:

P.S. I save my icons in Photoshop as GIFs c: The background is transparent, I don't have layer with white bg!
You can also save it as png file with transparent background in SAI, but you won't be able to add animation then.

:star:You also may use one of my free icons! :star:

This is cute Great job! I used this many years ago on some Gifs back when it was free. Decided to go ahead and pay the 100:points: to support your work. Really wish you would do more tutorials. You are one of my favorite Pixel artists. :3

I don't need to pay for it to see how you do it.
1. You do the lineart how you normally would
2. go over it with the binary brush, and add color
3. resize the art to 50x50
EDIT: if you don't have photoshop, you can go to an online gif maker

It doesn't teach you how to animate. I spend my points in vain. It's cute though.

You gotta purchase it on the right w/ points, and it'll download, then you have to extract the files from the zip folder.

How do I get points...? I FEEL STUPID

In order to get points, there are several different ways:

#1) The way deideiblueeyez reccomends is by providing particular DeviantArt users a form of attention or approval. If you were to watch them, they would of course appear more popular by an entire user. If you were to favorite their work, their work would appear slightly more popular. Or you alternatively provide advertisement for the dAhub account in a journal in exchange for points.

#2) Try to sell drawings for points. These are most often known as 'Adoptables'. You'll have to start off cheap and slowly raise the prices as you get more popular, but eventually you earn points that way.

#3) Buy points for money from DeviantArt. The minimum you can buy right now is 400 points (see prices here www.deviantart.com/account/poi…). Or, if you're lucky, you might be able to find somebody willing to trade points for money at a cheaper price.
