Tutorial: How to draw Jewels by oni1ink 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
