Pixel Art Tutorial Series is currently the most popular thing on my page. The idea behind this is to take suggestions from the community and try to make a tutorial out of these things, helping out fellow deviants along the way. You can also find my pixel art tutorials in groups like #TutorialsForYou, #TutorialsClub and #PixelCommunity.
Here is a list of tutorials in my Pixel Art Tutorial Series, tutorials which are underlined and bold are already ready tutorials that you can read, other tutorials without the underline are tutorials that will be posted in deviantART in near future.
You can also suggest new pixel art tutorial series by commenting on my profile page, on these tutorials or by sending me a note.
Enjoy!

How do you make a finger using only keyboard symbols like this

I only copied and pasted this texted hand I didn't create it.

 Example:

 

────█▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀█───
───▄▀──────────█──
──▄▀───────────█──
─▄▀─█───────────█─
█──▄█────────▄──█─
─▀▀─█──█──█──█▄▀
────█──█──█▀▀
────█──█▄▄█
────█──█
────▀▄▄▀

This is exactly how you do it. There are some special characters that you can use with copy-paste, there's loads of them if you google it. And people make stuff with them. :nod:

Great tutorial, but one thing bothers me. There doesn't seem to be a light source, all of the sides are the same color, and each side should have a different shade. Because of this the text doesn't quite look 3D, or maybe I'm just colorblind :P

Anyway awesome job, really diggin' these tutorials.

Yeah. Before I started I decided not to add light source and do it with same colors. :)
And thank you. :aww:

uuhh i'm not good with curves, but the result it's too awesome to not try it. Thanks for the tutorial, I love it <3 Do you think it's possible to change the texture with a wooden type?
vanmall's avatar
vanmallHobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you. :aww:
Take what ever texture you like, wood should work fine. :) I can get the base text from my tutorial if you don't want to try it yourself. Build a wood texture on top of it. :)
