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!

Hey I was wondering if you could help me out, I've recently been trying to make a pixel art piece (on Photoshop CS5), or more of an animation but I'm having trouble with the quality after saving: it just gets blurry instead of the clean, sharp edges I see while working on it. The image size is 480 x 270 pixel with 1 resolution. It's more of a landscape piece and it frustrates me when I see amazing high quality pixel art but yet I'm unable to get the same HQ result. I've tried saving in JPEG and of course, PNG, even changing the size of the image to 7000 x 3938 with 1 Resolution but still get the same blurry end result. I've also tried changing the image interpolation to 'Nearest Neighbor' instead of the default which was 'Bicubic', they say that using the option 'Nearest Neighbor' keeps the quality of said image and you should end up with a hard edged image instead of the distorted blur. Point being, I've tried many different ways, even taking screenshots or video recordings of the piece but it still comes out blurry.

Either way, I hope you know some kind of solution to this problem, thank you for reading.
