I feel like I over anti-alias. Like not necessarily in a way that looks bad, it just blurs the edges so much it doesn't look like pixel art anymore haha.

ME TOO lmao one of my goals for this year is to simplify how I AA. I've been sutting back on it and damn does it save time XD
Thank you for sharing this! :)

ahh!!  this is something i've been meaning to learn for a while now  *v*  thanks for this!  <3 <3

Ahh thank you so much so glad to hear!!

would this be good to use for all neighboring color areas in a sprite, or is it only good for the outer edges?
on a similar note, can AA be done on the edges if your bg is transparent/non-existent?
lol i feel like these are such noob questions, but i've genuinely never dabbled with AA stuff in pixel art before  ^^;

((if you were going to get into these questions in a later tutorial, then i can just wait for that  <3 ))

You can certainly use it between neighboring colors in general! Lines, clusters, all the things can be AA'd.

And TBH now that you mention it I really should have covered coloring outlines on a transparent BG. There's one super important rule; only AA the inside of the line art. Don't apply any AA to any ends facing away from the sprite. This way you keep the AA to the sprite itself. You can't apply it outside because there's no stable BG color for a transparent BG piece. Examples
