:painter:Tutorials for this week:

How to Make Pixel Art in Paint.NETThis week we've been looking at pixel art and by now you might be wanting to give it a try.
But how do you get started?
I'm not talking art theory here, I mean how to literally start drawing pixel art. Well as the name might suggest, pixel art is primarily a digital medium, so you're going to need some sort of art program to draw in. Now there's a lot of art programs out there, heck you probably already have some. Most of these can do pixel art, but today we're going to be looking at a free program called Paint.NET

Before I go any further I'd like to point this out right now: Paint.NET is NOT the same as MS Paint. MS Paint is that drawing program your windows computer came with. You can do pixel art in MS paint, but I wouldn't suggest it… Trust me, unless you want to try pixel art-ing in hard mode it really isn't worth it. That's not to say you can't, but I really can't recommend it. Not when there is a much better free alternative avai
A Little Pixel HelpWe know that there are tons of tutorials out there that go over different aspects of Pixel Art Creation! Did you know that there are also alot of journals discussing the art of pixels as well? I decided to browse through them and put them here in a journal for you to easily find.

I am going to go through these at a later time but I just wanted to put this one out there for all of you pixel lovers!
