A while ago my friend asked me to make a pixel tutorial, and, despite the delay, here you guys go!
I reached the 2000 watchers landmark a while ago, and felt it was time to give back
something to you guys! So I hope this tutorial can help you in some way.
I am in no way a professional, most of this stuff you can pick up on your own! So don't expect any miracles from this hah
Really, getting good at pixeling is just about practising and learning from doing, tutorials can only get you so far!
A few more tips:
Less is more when pixeling, if detailed characters get too hard to fit in a canvas then simplify the design!
When doing an icon, zooming out can help you judge what needs to be changed. If a line looks wonky, it generally will be, so mess around with it until you're happy!
