Pixel tutorial! I really hope this is useful - I had to learn shading by myself and it was kind of troublesome Q7Q HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!

Hello! Thanks for creating such a good tutorial! I am an aspiring artist and YouTuber and your tutorial was featured in one of my videos

If you like it and are a pay-it-forward type of person, I would appreciate a little help getting the word about my channel out. Anyway, keep up the great work! [i]: free cactus bun icon

did you use layers for this?
pyrogoth's avatar
I used one layer for the sketch, and two layers for the lineart - then I merged the cleaned-up lineart together and colored on that layer! : )
