Pixel art tutorial

Tutorials are all the rage! So here's one way you can make pixel art - or more specifically pixel dolls. I love looking at pixel icons sprout up everywhere but I also noticed a pixel icon trend where the bodies are shrinking, coupled with ginormous heads. I hope my tutorial is of use to anyone and everyone!

I'll be keeping this tutorial here for a while, though I tend to store my stuff so you can find it in tumblr in future here:

This is dedicated to my friends, whether you are an artists, not an artist, a tablet or mouse user or trackpad whatever, you all can pixel!

Feel free to ask questions. o u o

And here's a download link to FireAlpaca:
(A mix of photoshop and SAI, simple and quite easy to use.)

ps. sorry if you feel cheated by the title o w u)/ give about 10 more minutes to add hair and clothes!
