Some people use Gimp for pixel art, that one's free. Complex UI and a learning curve on everything, but it's a very comprehensive program. It's a useful program to have around anyway, for adding text, filters, adjusting color balance, and more.

I have heard of GIMP before but I never gave it a shot since I had ms paint. I'll look in to that as well though since I really want to keep using my Mac and especially for art too lol

I’d say try fire alpaca too? I don’t pixel so much but it was a free program and made very nice clean edges on its brushes!

I don't currently use Apple products for art but I've made some research because I wanted to get the iPad Pro and the best art program for iOS seems to be Procreate. I think it has an in-built pixel brush or at least an option to add such a tool.

I've been doing some research too and it appears that there's a way to actually put MS Paint on a Mac. Not sure if it works, lol and it seems kind of shady buuuut, definitely about to try it. Lol

But I'll definitely look in to the procreate too. <3 thank you!!
